Is The Prime Minister Unwell?

Recommended Posts

Right. Let me start off by saying that this is not a cheap dig at Gordon Brown but an attempt to draw your attention to a nasty rumour with very unpleasant implications. This is not to be taken as politically motivated slanderous fun.

I have no way of deciding whether or not this rumour is true but it is so awful that I felt compelled to put it on HPC:

If this rumour turns out to be correct, it is very worrying news - the man with the primary responsibility for running our country is not fit for purpose and should be pensioned off immediately for his own good and the best interests of this country.

All the most successful people are slightly mad; they need to be to get into these very senior positions. Normal well-balanced people go for lower level jobs that enable them to have a full life outside of work.

I thought his problem with eyeysight - needs very big text - was well known.

I don't mind that he's on anti-depressants. I do mind that either intentionally or unintentionally he has ruined the British economy by actively encouraging a credit bubble and house price inflation.

An interesting article. Just to add a few boring technicalities:

If GB was switched from an SSRI to a MAOI, he would have needed a washout period. The two types of drug interact to cause "serotonin syndrome" which can be fatal. So he would probably have come off the SSRI just before his holiday and then started on the MAOI while on holiday so that he would hopefully see a therapeutic benefit by the time he returned to work.

Does anyone remember seeing GB's behaviour deteriorate before his holiday? That would be more circumstantial evidence.

An alternative theory for his current dietary requirements would be that he is taking selegiline for the early stages of parkinson's disease. I don't think this is very likely, but it is worth mentioning.

We need to find out if he eats bananas, marmite or cheese.

Winston Churchill suffered from Depression and I would say the stress of the PM's job during such times as War and economimc recessions will make any person serverely depressed. Not standing up for or against GB but it should be noted how public perception can be manipulated by the media and sheeple coerced into action they wouldnt have taken if thinking independantly.

But Churchill dealt with his depression like a man; he didn't take Prozac or other SSRIs that may have an effect on a person's decision-making processes.

Are you one of these 'pull yourself together' and 'depression isn't a real illness' types?

Churchill stayed busy during WWII so he didn't get depressed, from what I understand of the man. Not having something to do got Churchill down (or allowed depressive traits to come to the fore), and that is probably true for a lot of people.

Brown seems to have an extreme personality. He has a very high estimation of his own ability and judgement, and it seems that he struggles to accept that he needs to use the talents of others. These ongoing stresses could make someone feel depressed I would imagine.

Not sure what that tells us - he's a very driven man, pushing himself too far and not really aware of his own limitations. Sounds like a lot of people.
