Withering Heights.

Very Bronte-ish. Mr Smith thinks this demonstrates the problem with PM Gordon Brown. He has the very unfortunate habit of finding himself getting sidetracked on trivial issues of personality which can only undermine even further his authority as premier. How on earth was he persuaded into making these comments? Can you imagine Tony Blair responding to that one?

"COMMENTATORS have long been fond of likening Gordon Brown to the stormy, brooding character of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. And it seems that is also how the Prime Minister sees himself. In an interview, Mr Brown was asked about the comparison and appeared to revel in it, insisting it was "absolutely correct"."Well, maybe an older Heathcliff, a wiser Heathcliff," he added."

And he commented on his nail biting as well ...
