THOUGH HE’S NOT at the forefront of British politics any more former Prime Minister Gordon Brown is still a politician.

Though it appears he himself forget that when speaking at an education summit in Qatar yesterday.

Taking part in a panel discussion, Brown was asked for his views “as a politician” before he interjected and pointed out that he’s an “ex-politician”.

But presenter Mishal Husain reminded him that he is actually a Member of Parliament, forcing Brown to agree.

As the Labour MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath and before that Dunfermline East in Scotland for the past 30 years, Brown faces a re-election battle in two years if he so chooses.

Though on this evidence he may not.
