You will no doubt have already seen Gordon Brown teamed with Scotland’s first family of comic strips, the Broons, in the Private Eye parody The Broon-ites.
But at the weekend (January 25) the Prime Minister appeared in the genuine article: an episode of The Broons in The Sunday Post.
He appeared alongside Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond, in a special edition of the comic strip created to mark the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns’ birth. The two were seen visiting Number 10 – Glebe Street, that is, where the Broons reside – for a traditional Burns supper. Braw.
