Gordon The Linguist

Tuesday, 7 July 2009

We discover today that Gordon speaks three languages: gobbledekook; claptrap and ... French. What's more, he's managed to combine two of them in one sentence:

"President Sarkozy, mon ami, you are truly a force of nature."

Following a meeting with Sarkozy, Brown gave us his version of the Kipling poem: "If we can get growth, if we can get unemployment down, if we can keep interest rates and inflation down, then there is scope to do the things we want to do, and that is to get money to the frontline services," referring to the need to avoid pay and job cuts in the public sector. [Note: Public sector.]

Both Brown and Sarkozy declared support for each other's economic policies yesterday prior to the G8 free lunch, sorry, Summit.

Gordon's definitely not a cunning linguist, that's for sure.
