Gordon Brown, the People's Hero (again)

Having endorsed the protests, Brown now wants to clasp us tightly to his bosom:

Gordon Brown today revealed he hopes to take part in a massive demonstration during the G8 summit.

The Chancellor said he had been invited to the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh next month.

Mr Brown is the first Cabinet member to state that he is likely to attend the rally, which is expected to bring up to a million people on to the streets of the Scottish capital...

When he was asked about the march, Mr Brown said: “I have been invited to speak at one event and I hope that I will be able to do so.”

Don't mention the war.
