Alas, evidence of just how not off-the-cuff Brown's remark was has been reported on Sky News. His notes at his podium were photographed. And apparently there in the photo was a prompt note of his off- the-cuff comment!
I think it was Churchill who was once quoted as saying he had to prepare his impromptu comments for the next day. And I guess this is one of the few times Brown has been compared with Churchill!
