…that there was something a little inhuman about Gordon “Prudence” Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer and expected successor to Tony “Nickname omitted to avoid obscenity” Blair. And now here’s the final proof. In order not to have a numb mouth for a speech, Mr Brown
allowed a dentist to drill through to deep nerve tissue beneath his teeth without using an anaesthetic
And as if that wasn’t enough evidence that he is not as other men, the
torturer dentist in question apparently said that Mr Brown
was “perfectly relaxed” and “did not flinch or grimace at any stage”
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
 Note to any confused furriners: that delightfully Ruritanian title means he’s the senior finance minister of the UK
