    Interesting list of movies given to Brown by Obama:


    I might have included Patton and Shawshank

    And I say this without any sense of irony at all, but other than GWTW, are there any significant black characters in any of these movies at all? (OK, fighters in Raging Bull.)

    If it's me, I'm throwing in Road House as a bonus DVD.

    Should have given him Trainspotting, Braveheart and Rob Roy, so Obama would know more about where Gordon came from.

    Scotland. You know, return the favor?

    I might have included Austin Powers and The Patriot

    I think the Powers Box Set would be much more suited to former deputy PM John Prescott, since he's a randy bastard.

    The Patriot would be a good one to include, but you should probably throw in The Great Escape as well, just to dangle the idea of the 'Special Relationship' and give Gordon a boost.

    The relationships with Russia and China are more important to you guys, but we'll always be there for you.

    I would have thrown in "The Deal" - a movie about Brown and Tony Blair's agreement to have Blair be the front man and become Prime Minister. Michael Sheen is great as Blair (again) and Stephen Frears does a nice job directing. Actually learned a lot watching it.
    The thing is, aren't government officials required to pass up any gifts over a certain amount?

    You don't even need to be in a stadium for that to break out. I've seen it happen, regularly, at ex-pat sports bars down here when England's playing.
