image for Time Not Right For Brown, Say Millions of Financial Experts

Financial commentators from all corners of the globe have united in expressing that the time is not right for former Prime Minister Gordon Brown to be considered for the IMF job vacated by Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Some have stated that Brown is still heavily tainted by the heavy electoral defeat suffered by the Labour party under his leadership in May 2010.

Others point to his annoying habit of dropping his jaw every time he takes a breath during speeches as not being a desirable feature for a man in such a position of global importance.

There are even mutterings amongst some of the more superficially minded financial analysts that the former PM didn't have a hope in hell getting many to vote for him when all he had to offer in terms of perks would be a seat in the main stand at his beloved Raith Rovers FC compared to the Spanish candidate's hospitality box at the Bernabeu in Madrid.

The clincher for many is the fact that Brown has never had even the hint of a sex scandal linked to him in the whole of his political career.
