The things which make the news.

LOL. But they didn't mention the MNHQ cupcakes. Left wing reporting at the BBC again cupcakes are clearly to middle class to mention..

grin whomovedmychoc

Sadly, from today's webchat, I'm surprised he has the personality to do that in wmmc's pic. I cna't imagine him getting so into anything.

I was very disappointed by the lack of chat in the webchat.

Maybe he's a custard cream man Peaches? grin

What, boring on the outside with something overly sweet and processed in the middle????

Plain Digestive man he is.

Under that War Criminal Cape wink

The abolishment of the 10p tax band means that pensioners are paying twice as much tax on their pensions.

Under a Labour Government this happened.

Gawd Mr Brown, to echo a PP, please save us from Mr C and his minions of further destruction.

i asked the same question when Aggie came....so why not Gordon??

i was going to do a poll and ask every web chatter....but think not now!!

TrickOrNinks Fri 16-Oct-09 23:28:31

Aw crap, I read this thread all wrong.

Still stand by the plain digestive, it's so GB.

And it's the biscuit of war criminals don't you know.

Nah, he's got that whole son of the manse thing going on, I reckon he'd favour something old fashioned and not very nice, like a fig roll.

GypsyMoth Fri 16-Oct-09 23:35:30

i still think hobnobs....not the choccy ones,the plain ones...

I'd put money on his favourite being a tunnocks caramel wafer.

I'm assuming when Sarah comes on she'll have a soundbite prepared for any biscuit related questions now that she's had a heads up.

i like this article

Especially this bit..

But there was one question that he steadfastly refused to answer: what’s your favourite biscuit, Prime Minister? The question was put to Mr Brown no fewer than 12 times (which, as it happens, is the exact number of times Jeremy Paxman put his question to Michael Howard in the notorious 1997 Newsnight interview).

GentleOtter Sat 17-Oct-09 08:45:22

I don't think he does biscuits. He is not allowed them anymore as he was getting plump.

GordonBrownsTeaLady Sat 17-Oct-09 08:54:34

You are absolutely right GentleOtter.

He loves a kit kat, but we hide the wrappers from Sarah.

sarah293 Sat 17-Oct-09 09:02:37

grin sorry I missed it all

GentleOtter Sat 17-Oct-09 09:23:16

Do you think our innocent biscuit question may lead to the collapse of the government as we know it. Is this the beginning of the end?

And who will be the first to mention 'Golden Credit Crunch'?

GordonBrownsTeaLady Sat 17-Oct-09 09:30:11

very good GO.

A Credit Crunch cream perhaps?
