Gordon is Afraid

Gordon said Blears’ house flipping and tax dodging was “totally unacceptable”, but apparently doing the unacceptable is acceptable if you are in cabinet.  Humiliatingly Brown’s spokesman was later sent out yesterday to express the Prime Minister’s “full confidence” in Hazel.

Blears is a fighter; a weak Prime Minister, unpopular and without authority, deprived of McBride* to put the frighteners on Cabinet ministers, is not going to scare the feisty redhead too much.  So she defys him and gets away with it.  As Brown looks round the cabinet table he can see known tax dodgers and profiteers from the public purse.  Hoon, Darling, Purnell, McNulty and Blears all sitting on their profits from playing the property market at our expense.

Brown is too afraid to reshuffle.  Disappoint Mandelson and the Prince of Darkness could easily lead a deputation for his removal.  Mandelson will surely be the undertaker for the Prime Ministerial coffin, probably with the other end of the coffin held by Jack Straw.  He can’t shift Miliband in case he swaps his banana for a backbone and challenges for the leadership.  He can’t fire Blears, because if Blears goes, Hoon must go too and so on…

At PMQs Cameron taunted him, that he was afraid of an election.  Afraid that he would lose in a landslide that would see Brown consigned to history as the worst PM in memory.  Poor Gordon, the “frightened faertie from Fife”…

*Believed to be in Nice, staying at a family owned apartment.  The booze is cheaper in Nice too.

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
