"Cool Pen Set! Here, have these DVDs!"

Didn’t Sean Penn say he was happy to have an elegant President?

Shouldn’t he act like a President, then?

As he headed back home from Washington, Gordon Brown must have rummaged through his party bag with disappointment.

Because all he got was a set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world’s richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films – a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.

Mr Brown is not thought to be a film buff, and his reaction to the box set is unknown. But it didn’t really compare to the thoughtful presents he had brought along with him.

The Oval Office desk is made from the oak of the HMS Resolute, and Prime Minister Gordon Brown brought a special gift for President Obama:

The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.
