British Prime Minister Gordon Brown asked by BBC if he takes Pain-Killers to "Get Through" - Video 9/28/09
Here is video of a BBC interviewer asking British Prime Minister Gordon Brown if he takes pain killers to "get through," meaning to get through the day.
The question seemed to stun Brown, who it appeared took offense at that kind of question. He was asked the question in connection with rumors that his eyesight is also deteriorating. But Brown explained he has had surgery for detached retinas in both eyes over the years, and said his eyesight is not deteriorating.
