During ‘Business’ Questions yesterday Theresa May asked Leader of the House Harriet Harman about Gordon Brown’s magazine interview in which he likened himself to Heathcliff.

Theresa May MP: "Yesterday, the Prime Minister likened himself to Heathcliff. I imagine that most people would be disturbed by this comparison—as indeed it seems was Andrew McCarthy of the Brontë parsonage museum in Yorkshire, who explained that:

“Heathcliff is a man prone to domestic violence, kidnapping, possibly murder and digging up his dead lover. He is moody, and unkind to animals.”

Can the Prime Minister make a statement explaining which of those characteristics is most like him?"

Ms Harman did not respond.
