If you want evidence that UK big cheese Gordon Brown is not hip with the kids, try this BBC clip of his mobe interrupting a press conference at the World Economic Forum shindig in Davos... Hey, Gordo, that is like sooo last century - time to download a kick-ass polyphonic. Word has it that Sarko's phone has a thrash-garage remix …
Davos? No it's CRAP!
Da dll err derr, du dll err derr, da dll err derr d'oh!
Surely somebody should have informed GB of the social unacceptability of that particular tone?
Paris - because she wouldn't do anything socially unacceptable.

I'M IN MAKING A SPEECH ABOUT THE ECONOMY...
NO, WE'RE F*CKED!
Its his Zumba malfunctioning...
Why would she be singing Je t'aime?!
The first words of the song are "I come and I go between your kidneys." Not very romantic... Maybe a KGB "interrogation" technique?
Either way, I hope she wears marigolds.
My ring tone: No One Wins by The Bezerker. I can't stand it, but it's loud enough to overcome the fan buzz in the cab above my head.
Dom Joly style!
"Hello! No, I'm at the World Economic Forum! No it's shit!!"
Big cheese Gordo
Now what sort of cheese might that be? Hard cheddar, crumbly carephilly, danish xxx blue, the camembert which has to slither its way across the floor before you can eat it? Or perhaps something a bit lower down... which the perverse Home Secretary possibly favours?
The interesting thing is that it shows he can actually smile!
And how old is that phone
Please... as PM, you would had thought he'd have a slightly newer tone.
Singletone phones are soo 1999....
I would've assumed...
that he would either have someone to take phone calls for him, or at least have his phone play something like "God Save the Queen" or some other political drivel like that.
Someone was probably doing him a favour ringing to get him out of such a piss boring conference with some excuse about parliament being on fire or something but he was too dumb to realise :p
I want a general election
I'm pleased that our prime minister has got a nokia: kudos to the man('s advisors) for choosing a decent phone.
However, I'm sure it will be a recent nokia, which have a handy one-button-hold shortcut to switch to silent mode... with the first call, he should have pressed the reject button then hold the # to switch it to silent. (although really it should've been on silent to begin with).
As a result of that, I want a general election... now what phone has David Cameron got?
Kids these days ...
Nothing better to talk about than ring tones. Sheesh!
Glad I have a Palm
Where I can know instantly if it's on bloody 'vibrate only'. :)
Shows he's unprepared and doesn't learn...
First of all, at an important event he doesn't bother to turn the bloody thing off.
Secondly, when it does ring, as it was sure to, does he take the right action and turn it OFF. Nope! He declines the call. (What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that?)
So, says it all really, doesn't it? A stupid prat who hasn't a clue and doesn't think 'it' could possibly happen to him.
And people still listen to him? Pray tell me - WHY?
Hm, he's got such a dumb look on his face (first time I see this guy). I hope it's just the looks?
"And people still listen to him? Pray tell me - WHY?"
I dunno, maybe because they're in the Cabinet?
Nope, it's not jsut the looks -- the guy's a country-fucking retard.
Not Now, Darling
Shouldn't it play "It's The End Of The World As We Know It"?
"Things Can Only Get Better" is soooo 1997, and was wrong then.
'Cos it's an iPhone?
He's practically blind, he probably can't see when he's successfully engaged silent mode.
