Texture like sun?

A humourless, dour, anally retentive control freak whose idea of a good night out is.... well... who the fu*k knows? The mastermind behind the Inland Revenue's stealth taxation campaign where Income Tax stays steady but every other tax (i.e. VAT, Road Tax, Council Tax, Green Tax, fuel duty, alcohol duty, Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax, parking fines, speeding fines, the future bin collection charge, fines for not recycling etc.) slips slowly upward. Quelle surprise!

Gordon Brown was one of the main protagonists/enthusiasts for Scottish devolution when the Labour Party was looking for ways to stymie the SNP and grab the last few votes. Since devolution the expected backlash from the English in respect of the West Lothian Question has created pressure to allow the Scottish full independence, or (alternatively) redress the spectacular inequalities this introduced by disallowing Scottish MPs from voting on matters in the Commons that effect English voters only. The mere thought of this now has Gordy Sweating like a...

In light of the problems this may cause for his premiership of the UK (he is a Scottish MP), he has been back-pedalling furiously and has now evolved (a very loose term for his kind) into a fully fledged Unionist. He has started to express a wish for England to win the World Cup even to the point of beating Scotland. Too little too late as far as English voters are concerned AND a total traitor as far as the Scots are concerned. Oddly, without Scottish Labour MPs the Conservatives are guaranteed to win the next election.

Gordys timeline to the top was as follows:

  • [October 2006. Thirty more sleaze allegations for labour, twenty more incompetences revealed... and he's STILL waiting]
  • [December 2006. Cash for Honours, BAE's Saudi bribe investigation mysteriously cancelled etc... and he's STILL waiting]
  • [January 2007. Cash for Honours creeps closer to Tone, BAE's South African bribe investigation ... And on it goes!]

Finally the PM as of 28 June 2007. Gordy got sick of waiting for one of the sleaze allegations to get TCB out of the top job and instigated a backbench revolt that forced Tone to name the day, as he was showing about as much likelihood to quit the PM job as the Western Front showed movement in 1916.

There were those who were hailing it as a new chapter in the New Labour odyssey - forgetting that this cnut had been 2IC for a decade and was thus just as culpable as the Celestial Navigator! His first one hundred days in power were of quiet competence. Floods were dealt with. Terrorism was slapped about, the pound was strong and interest rates were steady. And then it all started to go wrong...

As of late 2007/beginning of 2008 Gordy seemed to be wearing butter coated gloves. With the Northern Rock nationalisation fiasco, repeated revelations of funding crises in the MOD, the Civil Service repeatedly losing data discs/laptops containing info on millions of us peasants, removal of the 10p tax level hitting the poorest in the country, credit crisis, house prices started to fall and the down turn in the economy... it looks like Gordy is well up shit creek. It didn't help that Broon has started to vanish when decisions required to be made adding to his reputation as a ditherer when he doesn't have total control.

Less than a year after taking office, Gordon Brown delivered Labour's worst election result (Council/London Mayoral elections, May 2008) for 40 years. This perfect storm caused by Broon also swept up Ken Livingstone and lost him the mayorship. All in all, a butt fcuking comparable to the total humping John Major's government received in the 1995 Council elections.

Less than a month later, the Crewe and Nantwich by-election arrived as a result of the death of the very popular Labour MP Gwyneth Dunwoody. A rather nasty and negative campaign by Labour saw a 17.6% swing to the Tories, thus resulting in the first Tory by-election victory since 1982! Given how panicy MPs get, Gordy's coat now appears to be on a very shoogly nail indeed.

I guess the cat of quiet competency is well and truly out of the bag.
