You tease, why would the cyclops step down this close to his opportunity to roundly thrash that cad Cameron when it's taken to the population?

One former Cabinet ally described him as “basically going mental”. He is understood to have been virtually ordered by ministers to take a month-long holiday in August.

However, insiders fear the break has done nothing to improve the Prime Minister’s leadership abilities.
Now to paraphrase the BBCs "Dr Who" (thanks to my grand-daughters)
Don't you think he looks tired???

Won't happen until the Irish have had another chance to vote the "correct" way on Lisbon. They'll put him in a nappy and give him some medications to control the shaking and then prop him up at the dispatch box to read the script and answers provided by Mandelbum.

The other option would be another change of leader without an immediate general election, and wouldn't that be funny!

Cruel to raise such hopes but, much as everybody loathes the man, best to keep him in place to ensure total Labour crash 'n burn rather than simply a crushing defeat under whichever unfortunate would take over.

It does not matter much really because whoever is in place as placeholder PM, for it of course Primandelson who holds the real levers of power.

Funny you should say that....

Rumours of a mid- speech trouser swamping were rife a few months back.

More classic spin from the House of Broon......

Develop a few mutterings about his mental state...

Let some rumours slip about his PM-ships health...

And you have the perfect background for him to declare that he will be standing down after the next election because he 'wishes to spend more time with his family'.

Whether he is severely thrashed or not by Big Dave it allows him to retain his own deluded self-respect, he retired undefeated afterall and gives Lord Meddlesome and the survivors room for manouver post election.

Of course, he will be going into the next election with potentially a country that has recovered from a short sharp recession. And the problem is, voters don't notice the economic indicators about how much debt we are in or whether our bonds have the right credit status. What they will notice is that everyone is going back to work, the shops are filling up with baubles to buy again, the massive tax giveaway (it will be so) at the budget just ahead of the election.

Now, I am not saying he will win, but look at when Labour had the tories beaten and the champagne on ice in 1992.

Don't know whether to pop the champagne or run screaming from the country - after all Mandleson might take over!
How many times has he resigned?
I am sure that Brown will get a cushy number in a quango somewhere or, more likely because he was a complete disaster he will be eagerly recruited by the European Union - if only to make that bunch of useless morons look half decent.

I think there's a wee room in Carstairs reserved for Cyclops :)

Better offer in a room at Rampton surely?

I think Mandelbum's game plan is to keep Gordon Ceaucescu going into the election, so that 5 years downstream Cameron takes the rap for not cleaning up the mess we shall then be in, hoi polloi having clean forgotten anything that long ago. Mandelbum will have noticed that Cameron has no policies and no clue what to do and is merely Blair Lite. Could work.

I've been puzzling why he wears a dark suit even when he has been out Iraq in the past.... and lately in Afghanistan in that heat.......

The same reason why I wear dark strides...... If I 'splash' meself after 'pointing percy at the porcelain'... the stains don't show up...

Maybe Gollums wears these dark suits so when his Mansize Pampers overflow and leak... there are no noticable stains on his strides..... Mind you it would be more practible to be fitted with a catheter... and a wee bag strapped to the ankle.... but then the stench of stale wee can be somewhat overpowering especially in a closed space like an armoured official car....... :p 8O

Im afraid to say guys Brown will hold on to the Bitter End. Along with his cronies who know if brown goes there career will end quicker than it would if you or I stole the co's car.

Im afraid we have to brace ourselves for more Drivel until we have to endure a bitter and dirty Elelction campaign (one thing Brown is good at is dirty tricks that is how he got where he is). :(

And then we will just have to wait till the next Spineless Idiot Stabs the Armed Forces in the Back.
