Gordon Brown & Rab C Nesbitt
Every Prime Minister seems to have one word or phrase which they delight in pronouncing oddly. John Major couldn't say the word 'want'. It came out as 'wunt'. Tony Blair couldn't say the word 'assure' - it came out as "ashoooer". And the next Prime Minister gives a particularly ur-Scottish pronounciation of the word 'constituency'. It comes out as if Rab C Nesbitt were saying it. 'Cn-sti-youuuu-ncee' - or something like that. Rory Bremner will be very pleased indeed.
