Gordon Says “You Decide”, He’ll Ignore

Gordon Brown launched his website with a promise of a new kind of politics, humble and listening. All of this was a mere three weeks ago.

“You Decide” what his website will discuss. New politics! Open! Listening! Interactivity! Digital not Analogue! Yeah Groovy! This week thousands voted to discuss “The NHS”. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and finally today Friday – Guido checked for the discussion.

Nothing but tumbleweed blew across the site.

Even checked out Oona’s blog on the site “following Gordon around the country listening to the people”. Nothing there either, she last mentioned the NHS on May 12.

Guido called up the campaign press office:

Guido Fawkes “Where is the discussion this week about the NHS?”
Press Officer “Errr, errm, I only deal with the website”
GF “Yes, this is a question about the website”
PO “Can I get Tony McElroy to call you back”
GF “Thanks”

If they start a “You Decide” discussion this weekend it would still be this week, technically…

Quote of the Day

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
