Gordon Brown quizzed by Piers Morgan on possible comeback
During the interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Gordon Brown was asked whether he would consider a return to politics despite his age as Joe Biden is set to become the oldest US President in history today. This sparked a heated debate between GMB viewers who took to social media to share their thoughts on Mr Brown’s potential return.
Mr Morgan asked: “Are you getting a spring in your step for another run giving that you are comparatively a spring-chicken?”
Mr Brown joked: “I am far too young to be a leader, the last Prime Minister in Malaysia was 94.
“Joe Biden is 78, Nancy Pelosi is 80, so let’s vaccinate the over 70s and over 80s to make sure they are ready for the positions of power.”
One Twitter user called for Gordon Brown to enter the mix as a candidate for Scottish Labour leader position.

He said: “Hey, am I wrong to think that the Scottish Labour Party need a leader with confidence experience who would not only match the FM but also take her to task with the potential to be FM what about Gordon Brown just saying.”
However, other social media users felt the former Prime Minister should stay out of politics.
Another Twitter user wrote: “@piersmorgan you just asked if gormless sorry Gordon Brown was thinking about a comeback.
“I hope it was only a joke because remember that man sold all our gold so please don’t put ideas in that disastrous and head.”

Mr Morgan asked: “400,00 crime records is a very serious matter if you do not find them having just told us they exist elsewhere if you never find them, will you resign?”
The Home Secretary said: “We are working night and day to bring these records back.”
