Brown-bashing: Don't Let Party Loyalty Stop You

Another day, another raft of attacks on our beleagured Prime Minister. Things are so bad for Brown that he is now being attacked openly by members of his own party. Labour peer Lord Desai says the following:

"Gordon Brown was put on earth to remind people how good Tony Blair was," the peer told the newspaper. It is a bit like William Hague, who is a far better shadow foreign secretary than he was a leader of the Conservative party."

Desai compared Brown's style to "porridge, or maybe haggis; it is not very persuasive if you don't already agree with him."

"He is a worrier with an academic approach to solving problems, but that does not always reassure people when they feel uncertain."
So, this Labour peer thinks that Brown is worse than Blair, better placed to be a minister rather than Prime Minister, is not very persuasive, and doesn't reassure people. What a person to have as Labour Prime Minister at a time when the economy is going down the shitter.

But does Desai want to replace Gordon?

"We are not there yet. It is very difficult to change a Labour leader before an election."
If I was Gordon Brown, I would be very worried by that yet.
