Sarah the stealth missile

Media commentators are suddenly falling over themselves to analyse what Sarah Brown is up to, with her increased public profile, her campaign work for the White Ribbon Alliance ( and of course her Twittering about issues such as refusing to eat veal at the G8, having fun at Gay Pride and watching The End of the Line.

Some are talking of a rebranding exercise, others are suggesting that she’s being used by No. 10 as ‘a stealth missile’, others that she is positioning herself for life after No. 10, and a job in the charity sector.

I suspect the truth may be rather less complex than the number of column inches suggest. Firstly she’s probably just got more used to being the Prime Minister’s wife with all that goes with it, and feels more comfortable striking out on her own. But also – she’s got two boys, one aged 5 and one who’s just turned 3. She’s simply doing what many mothers do as their kids get a little bit older, i.e. getting her life back!
