A quantum of bollocks

There is something apt about the fact that on the day that the Large Hadron Collider is turned on. (I have already mistyped it as Large Hardon, I'm afraid, while a rather officious female was standing over my shoulder dictating to me, just to make it worse) that Gordon Brown gives us a demonstration of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle that constitutes his premiership.

He endorsed Obama, but didn't endorse him and didn't really mean to do so anyway and was supporting him for a policy the Democrat has now abandoned.

Leave aside the justifiable fear (or hope from the Republican supporters) that this may have jinxed Obama (I still think he'll win, but he does need to up his game pronto; besides I don't really believe in the Gordon as Jonah thing, although now that you mention it, it has rained pretty solidly ever since he became PM), it's hard to think of anything more cack-handed and stupid. The last PM to get too close to one side in US election was Major in 92: and look how that worked out.

But then quantum physics can help understand Brown on so many levels. His premiership is, like Schrödinger's cat: it is utterly dead and yet it is still alive and continuing as Gordon gets on with the job (please, restrain your cheering for a moment). As for his political and economic impact: well a black hole seems an apt metaphor as the Labour party is slowly sucked in a destroyed by the unique form of anti-politics at which Brown so excels.

I think it's entirely reasonable to blame Gordon for the crap weather. Very disappointing all round.

Well ultimately it is God's doing, Puss. But since he started the rain when Gordon became PM and hasn't stopped since He is obviously sending us a heavy hint about his views on the PM.
