How much furniture did Brown break?

As many people will be aware, Gordon Brown is alleged to have a habit of going a bity mental resulting in the throwing of mobile phones, the kicking of tables and just general acts of violence against inaminate objects.

With that in mind I couldn't help but wonder what to read from figures given out by the Treasury about its spending on furnishing and fittings in the last five years. You see, 2003-04 it was a mere £69,000, in 2006-07 it was just £4,000 and for the past financial year it was £51,000.

What about the years in between from 2004 to 2006? Well in that time, at the height of the crazy tensions between Brown and Blair, they spent a staggering £1,075,000. Now far be it from me to suggest the Prime Mentalist may have gone a bit postal, but like I said, I can;t help but wonder.

Read Anderson in the Indy and then have a guess. His two examples of Brown's personality show why he is not fit be PM.

Not even the Prime Mentalist could trash a million quid's worth of furniture! Could he?

Surely a FOI request ?

Of course the last dictator to take it out on furnishing was Hitler who was know for chewing carpets.

conand: If he really tried he could, and if he didn't I'm sure he could persuade his Cabinet that he had.
