What do you reckon, will Gloomy Gordon be at the World Cup Final? The spin machine must be in overdrive - what will play better with the press? On the one hand, he is desperate to be seen as a "British" Prime Minister, to counter the arguments that the devolved settlement for Scotland (including his constituency) makes him ineligible to be Prime Minister of England. On the other hand, Rugby Union is being characterised on TV this morning as a 'Tory' sport (?!?) and Gordon has previously proclaimed his love of (association) Football (along with 'The Arctic Monkeys', of course). If he goes to the Final, he risks alienating the last vestiges of support he has in Scotland and pushing voters further into the arms of the SNP (and let's not forget that Gordon relies on the Scottish Labour vote to keep him and his ilk in power). If he doesn't, he will be rightly vilified in the press for demonstrating his already apparent contempt for England and all things English. Perhaps there will be a compromise - he will go to the match, but look miserable as sin throughout (that shouldn't be too much of a challenge), praying that England lose so that he can scurry out of the back door without having to be photographed smiling and congratulating the team. How much easier it was to be Tony - he would have gone to the match, cheered loudly throughout and then it would be MBEs and OBEs all-round and a big celebrity party back at Number 10!
