Gordon Brown: needs help?
REGARDING your article about Gordon Brown's facial quirks, are you aware that as a teenager he tragically lost an eye -- I think the right one -- in an accident. A friend tells me that when he is nervous or upset, the false eye twitches and turns in its socket. Which appears to happen a lot when he is sitting on the Front Bench at Question Time.
David Irving comments:
YES, he has one glass eye, which he uses to great effect; but the grimaces and odd gestures are something else.
