Gordon Brown has spoken publicly for the first time about his worst ever year - 2010 to 2011 - and the triple whammy of disasters he suffered.
First of all, on May 6th, 2010 the Labour party under his leadership were bounced out of government by the lost unlikely coalition of all, the Tories and the Liberal Democrats.
Secondly, on April 30th, 2011 his beloved Raith Rovers lost out to bitter rivals Dunfermline Athletic in the race for promotion to the Scottish Premier League.
And thirdly, perhaps the worst of all, news broke yesterday that his "bigotgate" nemesis during the 2010 General Election campaign, the now infamous Gillian Duffy , had moved into the same street where he lives in his hometown of Kirkcaldy.
Sources close to the former Prime Minister suggest that the only thing keeping Mr Brown from being committed to a secure mental facility is the knowledge that a certain T Blair hasn't yet asked him to be his friend on Facebook.
Oops - spoke too soon.
