|Its not only Blair that has a drink problem. Eh, Piers?|

Saatchi know that Brown under pressure will lash out, become unstable and thrash around. The tories are also fully aware of Browns deteriorating medical and mental history, as is the rest of the Westminster Village. Putting relentless direct pressure on Brown through a series of single issue hard hitting posters, viral internet and social media campaigns coupled with a few good old fashioned press and tv appearances means that however heavily Brown applies the panstick the cracks will show through on that well lived in and very tired face.
How stressed out Brown is can be deduced from the fact that Tony Blair has been roped in, pity he was somewhat orange and mega expensively suited and booted. It didn't go down too well with the breadline daytime unemployed making up much of the daytime TV news profile.
Mind Blowing Substances for Gordon Brown?
DUCKHOUSE BLOG September 2009
It just won’t go away and to be fair I raised the issue of Gordons’ medical and mental state on Twitter some months ago. Is Gordon Brown popping 'uppers' and 'downers'? Just how ill is he? The questions won’t go away and the Prime Ministers’ legendary rants and temper tantrums are well documented, a possible pointer to his current mental state.
Even the placid Andrew Marr raised the topic not once but twice on his Sunday morning TV show. A point later picked up by Adam Boulton on SkyTV. Both curtain raisers for the seaside Labour Party conference.
The indicators that Gordon is on a knife-edge can be gauged by his out of control severe nail biting ritual. It was a photographic close up of his fingers during the delivery of a budget speech a few years back that first put me onto this and a chance remark by a medical friend. The reality is that Gordon takes mega bites out of his nails during times of stress so much so that he has been caught having a nibble, live on TV.
The extended un-ending coverage on the terrestrial TV red button service has caught many a politician napping! The G20 in London was particularly fruitful, if you can call it that. It all hinges now on Gordon Browns’ Tuesday speech to the party faithful all down at the seaside.
We made many more references to Browns deteriorating mental and medical state and before the Duckhouse Blog originated on twitter too...
