Propaganda props up Brown's flagging book sales

In the style of Mao, Kim il Sung and Stalin before him, Gordon Brown is being promoted to our children as the 'Great Leader'.

The Prime Minister's book 'Courage' is being used as propaganda in our schools.

Last month, it was revealed that Lord Paul – who recently declared he would donate “as much as I can afford” to help bankroll Labour at the next general election – had purchased 6,000 copies of the Prime Minister's book Courage for secondary schools across the land. The book, which was released in June, is Brown's portrait of eight leading figures throughout history including Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.

Embarrassingly, however, it emerges Lord Paul's bulk purchase currently represents more than double the book's entire British sales. According to figures released by the UK book trade's independent sales monitoring services, the tome has barely sold 3,000 copies nationwide.

With on-line booksellers Amazon now offering customers 30 per cent off, industry experts suggest Gordon has a turkey on his hands.

Iain Dale, founder of the Westminster bookstore Politicos, insists when I call: “I'm sure his publishers would have expected a much higher figure than that. I believe he's got another book due out next year, so no doubt Lord Paul's services will be called upon again then.”

The book's publishers Bloomsbury didn't return my call about the thousands of remaining copies. Chunters one Westminster wag: “Perhaps they could be used as alternative anaesthetics on the NHS.”

Gordon Brown's literary prowess may have worked wonders on his billionaire benefactor Lord Paul, but the rest of the country aren't biting.
