Gordon Sees the Light

Westminster is reeling this afternoon, and it’s not because of the lunchtime Guinness or the tears of laughter at the Liberal Democrat’s new campaign theme tune. There is a sense of bemusement that for once the Prime Mentalist has admitted that one of his lines has unravelled after some gentle probing from Cathy Newman. The spinners are suggesting Gordon might have mis-spoken to Chilcott about defence spending increasing, but the line falls flat given he not only said it at the inquiry but again on radio and television last week and again in the House at last weeks PMQs.  So unused is he to any admission on fallibility from Gordon that a shocked Dave seemed lost for words and didn’t put the boot in sufficiently.

Brown’s dogged determination that he is always right has taken a mighty blow. Perhaps now time to admit a few other home truths. Boom and bust anyone?
