Do we like him? No we certainly do not!

Iain Dale is telling this story about a family friend being asked the question "who is the Prime Minister?" To check for dementia upon entering hospital after a stroke.

When Mum had her fall my first question upon reaching her was "Who is the Prime Minister?" to similarly check whether she had suffered a stroke. Her answer was "Gordon Brown".

My follow up question being "Do we like him?".

Her answer: "No, we most certainly do not."

I asked the questions and she answered them every day up until Monday.

Made me smile.

Hi Nick! Interesting blog but the way it appears on Google I thought someone was criticizing you, not Gordon Brown. I have to say I agree with the sentiment and your mum certainly knew what she was talking about though!

All the best
