Gordon Brown To Remain At No. 11

'Busy Blair' stakes claim for two more years at No 10

By George Jones and Sarah Womack

(Filed: 04/04/2006)

Tony Blair defiantly outlined an agenda to keep him in Downing Street until 2008 as he fought back yesterday against attempts by supporters of Gordon Brown to force him to quit by next year.

TB will enjoy watching the "Miracle Man" squirm over the next 2.5 years as the debt inflated house market unwinds. Say what you will, TB is a far far smarter politician than Gordon can ever hope to be. He knows that the house market is in trouble and with it the rest of the economy--what better way to avoid taking blame than to leave its architect on the bridge as the ship sinks.

Brilliant Tony--brilliant!

If the economy "crashes and burns" as you predict would have thought Blair would have wanted to be as far away as possible.....if the "ship sinks" surely he will go down with it?

TB's ego will stop him from allowing his arch-rival into the top slot. When the ship sinks he will have GB to blame and he may accept criticism that he trusted the wrong man with the job. Misery loves company mentality.

No. Tony Blair has always made pains to congratulate Gordon on his, and his alone, 'economic miracle'. Careful spin will ensure that Blair will be miles from the scene of the crime in the public's eyes.

Very cleverly he's also planning on keeping Brown close during the May by-elections, we'll start to see the TB-GB love in build in the next few days. When NuLab tank in polls, the sh*t will stick to Brown too.

Also, having Gordon Brown close at hand leaves Brown exposed to journalist's questions of Labour party funding/sleaze, something he has so far managed to evade, due to his usual avoidance of interviews [except his twice yearly Budget/pre-Budget quickies]

Should be interesting :lol:

Story was that Brown was going to be out of the country for the local elections to avoid any blame & shift it all to Tony. Looks like Bliar's not having any of that.

Guttless Brown's put it all down to a 'diary mix-up' - seems he's available after all :lol::lol:

I disagree,tony will stay on as long as is required to get the iran war over and done with,by then he'll be totally out of favour with the rank and file(not that it matters too much),so a political assassination will ensue a la thatcher......as i seem to remember thatcher is still fairly fondly regarded,even by right-to-buy council chavs who made a few quid.

gordon WILL be PM only to preside over an era of IR hikes and house price falls until the next election,when labour take a pummelling at the polls,cameron takes over and our special relationship with the US is left intact.

do they think we're daft????......we've heard the record before.

same shit,different band....just like todays charts!
