Gordon Brown’s benefits from having been Prime Minister exposed
Gordon Brown was undoubtedly one of Britain’s worst Prime Ministers. He was also the Chancellor who gave away our gold and a man known for his appalling temper and one who upset little old ladies. Now that Guido Fawkes has revealed the truth behind where the money passing through his office has gone, the nation has a clearer picture of the reality behind the fiction of his so called “charitable nature”.
On Friday, Guido Fawkes revealed that the office of Gordon and Sarah Brown has raised over £3 million since leaving Mr Brown left Downing Street “to support charitable projects yet has given less than £1 million to charity”. Fawkes also highlighted that Brown’s expenses have run at over £10,000 per week and in doing so that this self-styled “dour Scot” isn’t quite the penny pincher we all assumed him to be.
Though Brown is not nearly in the league of Tony Blair in terms of his earnings and extravagance, this new side to him is quite a revelation. Why anyone would pay him up to £124,000 for a speech escapes us however: Ruben Vardanian, the co-head of Troika Dialog and Sberbank CIB, must be beyond bonkers.
