Fears are growing for Gordon Brown as a new video has emerged showing the pressures of captivity on the British Prime Minister. Brown has been held hostage by an unknown group for months, and the latest video appears to show that he has been coerced to smile in order to give the impression that he is being treated well. In the video, Brown is forced to read from a prepared text, stating that he is just "Getting on with the job."
However, analysts agree that the smile is false and belies tremendous strains and discomfort and that Brown is close to breaking point. "This is the image of a man who is on the edge, but may be in denial about just how grave the situation is," said one top psychologist.
