    Still time for Darling to resign before PMQs?

    Another good scoop from Guido then.

    The key will be whether blears is a lone Blairite out for revenge or the public face of a faction ready to do in Brown.

    I want them destroyed. Exterminated. I want a smoking hole where the Labour Party used to be.

    If Brown goes that won’t happen.

    I guess that in a few minutes you can start applying to a combined membership of both the house of lords (yep, the one with mandy) and the government. There’s no one left in the commons to fill the government with.

    The only job requirement is that you are a houseflipper yourself and hence fully subscribe to deficit spending and quantitative easing.

    ….and so dear reader the slow motion car crash begins. Clearly gordon brown did have some form of Susan Boyle moment ((shortly after G0) a mental breakdown of some sort and his self imposed 0 day silence on matetrs then a flurry of Tv studio interviews, with the strange You-tube smile returning.
    The twitter hashtag is #GoBro NOW!

    AS I write he’s just left Downing Street flashing another You-tube smile…
    Perhaps if Gordon would take some friendly advice, announce a General Election, set the date, tell the country he is not standing for re-election then take up one of the mamny world stateman roles he has already been offered…

    The alternative, hang on by his bitten fingernails until the very last moment, suffer a humiliating wipe out, be hounded out of his own party by the Executive. Universally despised and shunned.

    Does anyone share my view regarding the drama in Downing Street ,that Gordon Brown could easily take the part of Captain Queeg ( Caine Mutiny Court Martial ) or Matthew Brady (Inherit the Wind ) ?

    The tragedy is that Brown resembles a wounded bull writhing in agony in the dust of the ring with no Matador sufficiently courageous to strike the fatal blow. The man must be in mental turmoil.

    It will be despicably inhumane if credible senior labour figures fail to call for him to step down.

    …he is not in jail because he is cleverer than the so called ‘legislators’ who have committed worse crimes. Instead, the ‘Business Secretary’ goes about the business of State: securing power, and influence for his Party which thinks it represents the people’s best interests.

    Truthfully, I don’t give a goddamn which political party in the UK ‘wins’. I want competence, and honesty, whatever colour it’s wrapped in. Beyond that: the IMF and every other sane economic body outside petty provincial politics wants the UK to come up with a credible plan for paying its debts. That means spending cuts or at least a freeze. Only a third of the so-called ‘stimulus plan’ assists that. The rest is discretionary spending…oops, ‘investment’, as career politicians like to call it. Eejits.
