He must be pretty desperate if this report in the Telegraph is anything to go by and does raise a rather disturbing point.
If one could believe that Gordon Brown was doing this for purely religious reasons, then that would be totally acceptable, but cynic that I am I suspect ulterior motives - that this is but a PR exercise in an attempt to upgrade his image in the eyes of the public. If this is the case, it is a dispicable act and shows a total lack of judgement - nothing new there then!
Mind you, like all politicians, I presume Gordon Brown will do anything for a bit of free publicity!
