image for Gordon Brown delivers slightly thrilling speech to TUC
Gordon Brown - better than Benzodiazepines and no side effects

Trade union members were "moderately excited" at Prime Minister Brown's address to the TUC Congress earlier today. The 30 minute speech almost received a standing ovation and delegates nearly said that it was the best speech they had heard in days.

Gordon Brown outlined the Government's commitment to a tight fiscal policy, which had many members about to clap with enthusiasm and close to cheering.

"Mr. Brown is an adequate orator", said one delegate, who should have been at work but had pretended to be sick. "We were approaching agreement with everything he said. The speech was not dull and boring. Of course, Gordon isn't Tony Blair. But he's a perfectly satisfactory Prime Minister."

Political commentators ranked the speech "slightly better" than that delivered by then Conservative leadership hopeful David Davies to the Tory Party conference in Blackpool in 2005, which left most of the audience asleep and three in a coma.

One journalist said:

"When the honeymoon period finally ends and the voters of Britain realise that they have a fat, dull Scotsman as their PM, that's when the Labour party will really have to work hard to improve their image".
