Fun as it is... watch Gordon suffer, I do wonder if it is the best use of our resources. Put simply:

  • There does, for once, seem to be a genuine crisis in the international economy which could affect us all, not just a few (formerly) rich bankers.
  • We are, effectively, at war - on two fronts at the same time.
  • There is apparently a terrorist threat from within our own borders that could place us (or some of us) in mortal danger.
  • Food and fuel prices are rising to a point that raises concerns about the ability of some to meet the (truly) basic elements of living.
And what preoccupies our Government? We don't have a PM's Special Envoy for Forestry any more. We don't have a Minister for Second Guessing the Scottish Parliament any more. Oh dear. How terrible.

This has to stop. Now. And, like it or not, it is his responsibility as PM to stop it. If that takes a leadership election, so be it.

But honestly; who really thinks Brown will have the balls to do what Major did?

UPDATE - Gordon is busy - he's found the time to mull over old injuries. FFS, Gordon, is that the best you can do?


  1. I disagree, we should be very pleased that Darling and Brown have more to think about than how they can throw spanners into the works.

  2. Like it or not, the Labour party is our duly elected government.

    We can each, individually, disagree with them as much as we wish; nevertheless, the fact remains that collectively, as a nation, we have elected them to do a job.

    And now, just when we need them, they are navel-gazing - again.

    Criticising them for this is perfectly consistent with criticising them for making a complete and utter cockup of everything they touch...

  3. I agree, but I think we would be better served by their inaction, in the circumstances.

  4. Fair enough, but if their best use is inaction then I could sit in No:10 and do nothing - for half Gordon's salary.

    Hey - I'd even be willing to telework from home so that the taxpayer could save on heating and lighting. I'd be the first carbon-neutral Prime Minister!
