Gordon's Greek Gaffe

Gordon was mingling with other lefty failures today at the “Progressive Governance Conference” – A collection of lefty leaders working out how they can use the economic crisis to increase public spending even further. Not that the Greek economy could get much worse, but the last thing Prime Minister George Papandreou needed was a photo-op with Jonah. In a rather rude fashion it seems the Prime Mentalist snubbed the Greek PM by refusing to name-check him in his speech.

You would expect Gordon to be happy to draw attention to the only European leader to be in a worse situation than himself.

Non-Denial of the Day

The explosive revelations of Andrew Rawnsley’s book, set to be serialised this Sunday are all ready causing ripples.

Guido normally leaves the psephology to Political Betting but he noted with some interest the figures buried in the latest YouGov data.

25% of people compared to 23% think that Labour chop and change too much and are more incoherent than the Tories. However 34% think they are both rubbish. 36% reckon neither party is led by people of any ability. Hardly a ringing endorsement. Looks like the stay at homes have it.
