You're not rid of me: Gordon Brown enjoys some PJ

Bloody hell, how desperate must Gordon Brown be for votes if he's decided that he's got campaign time to squander watching PJ Harvey doing Let England Shake:

Gordon: she's a fox hunter from the West Country. You might want to move on to someone a little more demographically welcoming.

Seriously, though, I think it's quite sweet that he stayed around to watch Peej do her stuff - it's certainly more comfortable than Maggie doing Saturday Superstore. Or, for that matter, this:

Nobody seems sure if it's satire or an act of misguided passion. If it's meant to help Cameron, it's the sort of helping you get when a drunk guy offers to make toast and burns your kitchen curtains instead. But if it's supposed to be a satire, it's rotten on that score too. Maybe we should just forget The Cameron Girls ever existed. They just want us to look.

[Thanks to @el_paulo for the PJ Harvey; he's not to blame for the Cameron Girls]
