The Divine Right of the Prime Minister

Last week according to Alistair Darling, the chancellor, Britain was facing "arguably the worst" economic downturn in 60 years which will be "more profound and long-lasting" than people had expected.

Last night according to Gordon Brown Prime Minister he was cautiously optimistic that underlying strengths would help Britain weather the global crisis.

Now they will both argue that what they were saying is actually not at odds with each other, but that's clearly not how the rest of us view it. One of the things that a leader does is ensure that their troops/men/women/staff/players/ or whatever else are clearly all on message, understand the mission. the tactics and all share both the objectives and the method for achieving victory or success. Once again Brown underlines his unsuitability for the job of Prime Minister because he does not do leadership. He is fundamentally a loner and someone who is clearly lacking in the skills to do the job.

Gordon Brown clearly aligns himself with King Henry VIII and it won't belong before he will be declaring the 'Divine Right of Prime Ministers.'
