Although I have had a lot of thoughts about the state of Gordon Brown’s troubled Labour Government I haven’t written many of them down. Mainly this is because they tend to be rather contradictory. I am finding it difficult to come to a conclusion about what is really going on and what the ultimate consequences will be.
However, I thought it was worth bringing to people’s attention this extraordinary article from Brown’s chief and most loyal cheerleader amongst the commentariat, Jackie Ashley.
Again, I am confused. I am not sure whether she is right to call for a greater sense of proportion and point out the pernicious effect of the Murdoch press, or whether the very fact that an article from Ashley of all people is headlined “He may be disappointing, but Brown isn’t a disaster” indicates just how big a hole Brown really is in.
