Having been at Edinburgh University with Gordon Brown and watched his
antics across the years, I think the media wildly overestimates his intellectual
ability. Unlike genuinely brilliant political economists such as Peter Jay,
Brown has always had difficulty in seeing the big picture. This has resulted in
him constantly falling foul of the ‘law of unintended consequences’. He is also
a classic bully and has tormented the underlings around him but is nowhere to be
seen when courage is required. Will Brown take the big, tough decisions as Prime
Minister? Don’t make me laugh!
