What the pundits say about Brown's exit:
Kevin Maguire-"Nothing became him as the manner of his leaving"
Donald Macintyre- "Appropriately perhaps it's a line from the Scottish play that may act as his epitaph – political rather than actual, of course – that "nothing in his life became him like the leaving of it". "
Daniel Hannan- "For once, the word “tragedy” is exactly apposite. I have laboured the Brown/Macbeth parallel so often as to try the patience of every reader of this blog, but it is appropriate to close by quoting that play one more time: “Nothing in his life became him like the leaving of it”. "
Jackie Ashley- "Nothing became him so much as the manner of his going."
The thing is though, the cliche doesn't even apply, his exit has been entirely in character with everything else he has done- cynical, tribal and graceless.
