Gordon Brown is Mr Potato Head
Gordon Brown has a new nickname among Treasury who officials, who are growing increasingly bemused by his recent rather comical attempts to change his image from a dour Scot, with the weight of the world on his shoulders, to Mr Happy. Having been someone who could only force himself to break into a weak smile if Raith Rovers won an away game, he has now obviously been instructed by his new best friend Alastair Campbell to break into that rather offputting grin at any available opportunity. Hence the new nickname – Mr Potato Head. Hat tip to myself in the Independent on Sunday!
