Good god their campaign has descended into farce, I think we can safely ignore them and concentrate on St Clegg the fraudsters pal.

Matt Woods (CleethorpesRock)

Are they for real?


We Are The Champions - Old Labour returns.

Brown must be taking advice from the Kinnocks.


Lord Palmerston

The camera angles are quite tight but, if you look closely, the whole event looks like it is very sparsely attended. There are a lot of empty chairs.


This is cringeworthy!
You see these guys at working-class social clubs, not party events.
Labour really have sunk so low!


That video is comedy gold especially when you realise that Elvis supported Nixon when he was President.


Brilliant, utterly brilliant. This must go viral. It sums up everything you will ever need to know about the current Labour Party.

The Tories, LD's and UKIP ought to make it the central plank of their campaigns

Scarlet Majors

Have a think, chaps. It is actually quite clever in that is taking the P out of Dave and Gazza Barlow. If you can't see that then don't go looking for trees in the woods or bears. Having a sh#t.

Gavin French

So this is Brown's big fightback??? The man is living on another planet. I wonder with all the Labour MP's in court now, should Elvis be singing Jailhouse Rock.


Sneer all you want. Labour just WON the general election :-)

Ultimo Tiger

Another party needs Simple Minds to show up for them. They are from Glasgow after all. That'd give Gordon something to think about.

Although for this country, our "New Gold Dream" might be quite a way off...


How utterly bizarre.

Elaine Turner

Clearly the Labour Party are just taking the Michael out of us having Gary Barlow... I think it is amazingly humorous for the Labour Party and quite witty. Something we haven't seen from Gordon at all. When you think about our turn around of their Ashes to Ashes to poster, we are being paid back in a similar coin.

Anything that brings a chortle to this desperate campaign has to be good, whether we provide it or they do... any chance of the oh so earnest Liberals giving us a laugh? Doubtful. Humour R not Liberals Democrats.

Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

I saw it on TV when I came back from electioneering in Hammersmith. Labour being fronted by someone imitating a dead man. Very appropriate!

Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

I also thought of Elvis' famous sentimanetal song "Old Shep"

As the years fast did roll
Old Shep he grew old
His eye was fast growing dim
And one day the doctor looked at me and said
I can do no more for him Jim

Reminds me of Gordon Brown!


Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. An absolute farce.

Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

"Sneer all you want. Labour just WON the General Election"

Really Paul? It hasn't bene held yet but if you are that good a prophet then why not get the numbers for the Lotto or the Euro-millions?

It doesn't add up...

Did he sing "Are you lonesome tonight?" or was it "Goodness gracious! great Balls of fire"?

Matt Woods (CleethorpesRock)

Steve, maybe Paul lives in Glenrothes where Labour HAS probably already won the election?

Jerry Lee

Oh good Lord, this is BRILLIANT. It's the most cringe worthy, embarrassing and hilarious thing I've ever seen. Gordon Brown, working the crowd, to the words "I'll never know the reason why you love me like you do?" OMFG. Forget David Brent, meet Gordon Brent. What jibbering man-chimp dreamed up this stunt? Prescott, surely? No one else in Labour is stupid enough (are they?)


Any national leader who would use an Elvis impersonator to drum up support is clearly unhinged and not fit to hold a teacup, let alone political office.

Jerry Lee

And by the way, Gordon - you picked the wrong Elvis songs. Take it from this Elvis fan, "All Shook Up" would have been more appropriate, or, given your position in the polls, perhaps "Way Down"? Then again, the fact that you agreed to this stunt suggests “A Fool Such As I” would have been spot on.

Face it, Gordon, your relationship with the British public has always been a “One-Sided Love Affair”. Now it’s only “A Matter of Time” until you are forced to say the two words that the whole country is aching to hear from you… “I’m Leavin’”.

Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

Following the Brown Tie-less meeting somewhere in West London today the BBC has said (so it MUST be true then folks) that Labour are to concentrate more on using Brown in the remiander of the campaign. Oh dear I never read of the Titanic being deliberately steered towards the iceberg before!
