Reference my Previous

I see that the outstanding hypocrite of our times is showing, once again, why he was appointed to the 'leadership' of the Labour Party:

Brown renews banker pension plea

The prime minister is expected to renew his appeal for Sir Fred Goodwin to hand back part of his £16m pension at a meeting of Labour activists.

Gordon Brown has threatened legal action against the ex-Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) chief over his pay-out.

Come on, Gordon, sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander, remember?

And I see a somewhat higher circulation periodical made a very similar (though, I think - Ed notes: but you would, wouldn't you, less elegant) point:

GORDON Brown last night dismissed calls to surrender his £123,000 a year pension when he is forced to stop being prime minister next June.

Mr Brown was defiant in the face of City outrage despite the UK government's annual operating loss of £100bn, rising to £1.5 trillion when the write-down of its banking assets is taken into account.

The prime minister said: "I've been building up this pension since I became an MP, it's all completely legal and now you want to take it away because I've been catastrophically bad at my job and you're looking for a scapegoat."
