Hang-dog expressioned, unelected supreme leader (read dictator) of Great Britain, Gordon Brown has been diagnosed has having tears in his retinas. A bit rich given that most of the nation has had tears in its eyes since the start of his reign of misery, tyranny and abject failure.
The visually impaired scrotum look-a-like was unavailable for comment, however I have obtained some public opinion on the matter.
Rupert, 24, from Swindon said "This gives Gordon an excellent excuse as to why he did not see the recession coming, despite having set it up with his own policies as chancellor."
Alan, 53, from Kettering said "I hope he regains his sight pretty sharpish, that way he might see nobody actually likes him."
While an anonymous source, lets call him D. C. the Tory, said "A torn retina? Pfft, how would he like a thick lip and a black eye to go with it? He wouldn't see that coming would he; mind you he wouldn't see much coming at the moment. Like the nation apparently don't see the massive and worrying gaps in our supposed policies! Oops, said too much!"
