Gordon Brown's Crowning Achievment As Pm Will Be...

Recommended Posts

No links, this is a little think piece for ya.... ;)

The Olympic Games is when world leaders in their multitudes congregate in the host city. It's the social event of the decade (almost.) And the country's leader is the man of the moment; gracious host showing off to the world's greatest; feted, lionised.

This could be Prime Minster Brown's swansong, his last hurrah, his elevation into the social stratosphere at the end of his time in office. And where will Tony Blair be then? Despite our Tone having worked so hard to get the games for London he'll be nowhere, yesterday's man, forgotten, spluttering in GB's dust. Ah, revenge, so sweet.

But wait, will Gordon be PM in 2012? He must do some calculations: last general election was 5 May 2005, so there must another election by Spring 2010. Too soon! And no guarantee of winning, ignominy lurks, the Tories could take the glory. Horrors! What to do?

Well, thinks Gordon, new leader equals honeymoon period, plan: asume office in July this year, 100 days of initiatives and give-aways take us to the Autumn. Perhaps a snap general election in October this year? Labour would have the element of surprise; the kudos for "legitimising" Gordon's PMship by going to the voters; and the honeymoon with the press and public will still be in full swing. And guess what, a GE in Oct 2007 means Gordon will be PM until Oct 2012 (and the Olympics are June-Sept of 2012 - including paraolympics).

So a nice long 5-year term of office, never a care for re-election - he doesn't want it - then crowned by the Olympics, and leaves office on a wave of national euphoria and global approbation. Any international job he wants after that, or just retired elder statesman, Nelson Mandela figure bestriding the world.

The future is Brown!

I also think Brown will want an early election, but not so much due to the Olympics, more to do with the fact that he can see the dark clouds on the economic horizon, and also knows that withdrawl from Iraq in the next 12 months will be necessary.

The floor in the plan is that GB will lose an election whether its today, October or in 2010. The fact is he is the new Kinnock. Unelectable.

People dont like him. And in todays modern age that is political suicide.

Browns been pi$$ing his pants to become PM. He's not going to have an early election and loose that time in power. He's having an election in 2010, when they loose, the olympics will be because of Blair and Brown and they'll still take credit

They will take credit for hosting the Olympics, then blame the party in power for screwing it up. :lol:
