New Brown official portrait.

A new official portrait of the Prime Mincer has been unveiled. It was commissioned by Gordon himself who told the artist "I always liked the work of Mapplethorpe, you know, very dramatic, classical images. Could you do something like that?"

Here is the result

This provoked an immediate very giggly response from R, who is just typing up her entry for Hawthorn;
"He looks... like the bad guy off the back of a video packet"

Ben Stiller in Zoolander, more like.

Its an extraordinary image

Calfy, there you go, the response of children is "like the bad guy" and "dark and evil". Out of the mouths of babes...

TT and Pip, with the photo and having googled I can see why you went there. I have not seen this film.

Scrobs, the manicure is so 21st century.

lilith said...

Idle, yes, and Lakes, stop feeling sorry for him!

lilith said...

Hemulen, welcome :-)

It is. And it will be "in history as long as history books are written"

The Lakelander said...

"Feel sorry for him?"Hell's Bells!

I've made a second career out of mocking this apology for a Prime Minister.....and I'm not about to retire!

lilith said...

Just a gentle tease Lakes, I must put you back on the blogroll.

He really does give me the creeps now... there's something... unsanitary about him. Urg.

Tuscan Tony said...

See Zoolander Lils, not a top 100 films of all time contender but not a waste of 120 minutes etc. Plus for the girlies it has Owen Wilson.

lilith said...

Not this girlie, TT...check the nose quite apart from the surfer chic hair.
