Brown Avoids Referring to Darling in the Future Tense

banzai_smallBrown has just twice refused a Sky News interviewers invitation to refer to Alastair Darling’s status in the future tense. Benedict Brogan senses the ground beneath Darling’s feet turning to quicksand.  Is this it, Balls and Brown hunkering down in the bunker for the last stand of the remaining members of Team GB?

Will Darling be this bunker’s Claus Von Stauffenberg?  He appears to be being set-up to be the fall guy for Brown over the economy.

Is Labour Sincerely Sorry?Labour Fakes 'Personal' Letters of Apology

The SNP have got hold of the formulaic HQ-drafted fake apologies being sent out by Labour’s MPs, MEPs and local councillors.

The suggested letter to be sent by MPs (see full letter here) begins

Dear [Insert Name]

I thought twice about sending this letter because I know how rightly angry people are with MPs. I suspect that you are fed up to the back teeth as day after day more stories come out showing greed and, in some cases, serious wrongdoing. I would like to echo Gordon Brown’s words – that I’m sorry that the political system and some MPs have let you down.

The letter for Labour’s local councillors

Dear [Insert Name]

I know how angry people are with Westminster politicians. I suspect you are as fed up I am, as day after day more stories come out showing greed and in some cases, serious wrongdoing. I would like to echo Gordon Brown’s words – that I am sorry that the political system and some MPs have let you down.

The suggested letter to be sent by MEPs is more of the same

Dear [Insert Name]

I know how angry people are with Westminster politicians. I suspect you are as fed up as I am as day after day more stories come out showing greed and in some cases, serious wrongdoing. I would like to echo Gordon Brown’s words – that I am sorry that the political system has let you down.

They are echoing Gordon’s words alright, he finds it difficult to say sorry, they can’t even be bothered to find their own words.  Don’t they really mean “we are sorry we got caught?”
