Gordon Brown writes

United in our determination for a co-ordinated programme of measures to ease the worldwide recession, a historic deal was signed by countries representing two thirds of the planet\’s population.

Forget the content for a moment and look rather at the style. Clunky, complex, boring, reeling of a list of details but little or no inspiration. If it\’s by a ghostwriter then they\’re very good indeed for they\’ve managed to capture the essence of the man (and I write here as someone who has ghosted just such articles for others).

Sadly, so I\’m told by one of the editorial peeps on one national newspaper, Brown actually does write these things himself. Slightly worrying really: both that he spends the time which some tax paid flunky could relieve him of the burden of and that the output is so poor.
