This week’s Economist has an article about the Dunfermline and West Fife by-election (requires subscription unfortunately). The article focuses on Gordon Brown’s frequent interventions which are pissing Jack McConnell right off. Honestly, I don’t know which I’d prefer to see lose that one. Such a tough decision.
Anyway, The Economist calls Gordon Brown “the “King of Fife“, as is known locally…” I have never ever heard this. In fact, it turns out that the only mention that Google can come up with is from a week-old article in The Scotsman — hardly local, or known.
Last week Gordon Brown was on Reporting Scotland, standing in Rosyth talking about how he had brought job stability.
