The Great Brown Chief

Gordon Brown's performance on Andrew Marr on Sunday and the Today show yesterday has come in for a welter of criticism, and rightly so. It's the usual diatribe except this time he even tried to use one of Margaret Thatcher's old policies on the NHS. We will provide the “doctor you want, time you want, hospital you want”.

The Great Brown Chief can talk forever (and he frequently seems to) about all the policies under the sun. He can use the word change with monotonous regularity but he cannot change the one thing that matters - people just don't like him. He might get away with it if they respected him but that's no going to work either. Brown can splutter on about his experience but as people are beginning to realize it's an experience that ranks up there with a visit to the dentist.

Re: ”Brown can splutter on about his experience…”

But it’s often experience of getting things badly wrong that he never learns from. The list is long but, as an example, look at the pensions crisis; he largely created it with his raid on funds. Or the hideous waste of half our gold reserves.

James, are you sure he is?

So the question remains--if we keep electing such crappy leaders, do we deserve them?

The U.S. seems to be in the same boat.
