Oops!, a tale by Gordon Brown

If you were going to write your autobiography, what would you call it?

The title usually provides a searingly honest insight into what the person thinks of themselves.

So Peter Mandelson called his book The Third Man revealing how he thought himself the third most important person in the Labour governments of the past decade.

Dull and uninspiring in every job he held, John Major went for the imaginitive: John Major – the autobiography.

Tony Blair finally released his memoir this week: A Journey.

Apparently it was changed from The Journey because his publishers found that too pompous.

But to me, the title still has an overblown heroic feel and could be the title of one of those awful three hour religious epics from the 1960s.

Gordon Brown is said to be working on his own book which isn’t an autobiography, memoir or anything like that.

But if he did get round to writing about his time in politics, can I suggest the title: Oops!
