Marr Goes to Kirkcaldy

Starts off in Brown’s old school, with a posed shot of Brown entering striding across the grounds. We learn he was top boy and in the rugby team. Brown loves being pictured with school children, none are available so the headmistress is drafted in instead.

Marr’s interview is in the school library and starts off tamely on education. Brown’s smile becomes genuine only when Marr asks him “do you expect to become PM?” Brown swerves direct answer and waffles on about “new politics”. Marr asks how his government will be different. Brown proceeds to make a party political on broadcast on behalf of Gordon Brown.

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
