“Goodnight” Gordon …..

SNP Stuns Labour in Glasgow East

The SNP pulls off a stunning victory, winning one of Labour's safest seats by just a few hundred votes. That should wipe that dam smirk off his face.

  • Yayyy! But why would Labour be surprised??? The surprising thing is that anybody voted for them. Even the Sheeple are on to them.

  • Can we have a straw poll from regular posters on this site on who will be organising Gordon’s leaving card (we’ll skip buying him a present)

    He’s already finished but as there is no honour left in politics he’ll simply carry on and wait for the next event to grab the headlines. Rather like the EU simply ignoring the Irish vote and threatening the country unless they come up with the ‘correct’ decision. Democracy seems to be ignored these days unless of course the result goes your way.

  • I have a replica Foxtons mini and a new calculator both gift wrapped and ready to go.

    You lads do a whip on the card I’ll put this in the post.

    The only Straw poll will be the one Jack does in his own mind before some oleaginous manoeuvring.

    This is his long awaited ‘big moment’.

    People seeking Broon either calling an election or resigning forget both recent history and the way our parliamentary democracy works. By-elections are entertaining but make no difference.

    Neither Thatch (who lost a large number, some by very large swings indeeed) or Major (who was in a similar hopeless predicament as Broon) ever contemplated giving up a working majority on the basis of by-elections (or indeed heavy losses in local elections).

    The way our system works, Broon is in either till he calls an election by his own volition (May 2010 is the latest possible date) or till his party gives him the push unlikely unless both of the following are true: a) they think they can win next time under someone else; b) that someone who believes they are that someone else is prepared – behind the scenes of course – to step up and make it quietly known he is available (he won’t wield the knife though).

    It won’t be another Scot so the list is small: Milliband, however smart is really NOT leadership material; Balls (who is up for it one day I think) is too loyal – for the moment at least; Johnson is sensible enought to know Labour will still lose, so staying out of it till they are in opposition; while Harman is not altogether deluded enough to think she could win where Gordo couldn’t.

    So nearly another two years of Broon then? Looks likely to me. And contrary to some comments it’s 100% constitutional and perfectly tenable.

  • GB got the job he arrogantly believed was his alone. He then blew it in astronomical proportions, so will feature as the most historically inadequate PM. His ego will not let that happen so he will hang on and hang on and hang on in the vain hope that he will win some sort of ‘political lottery’. The trouble is that the political lottery will prove to be harder to win than the national one.

  • This is getting silly.

    This man, Gordon Brown, is positively dangerous. He is sitting in office with no mandate, he has no respect form the populace and his policies are certainly responsible for the size of our current downturn and house price crash. At least Robert Mugabe had the decency to rig an election, this man is a sad leader using our crook political system to dictate his way into the history books as a man leading britain into disastor.

    His assumption that he is a good economist, teamed with the Labour parties total ineptitude in almost all departments means that all this cretin can do (apart from falling on his sword and lets face it he’s a chuffin politician and as such is thick skinned and has absolutley no honour) is borrow and spend, borrow and spend, giving unnessecary support to banks and mortgage holders and finally run our economy into the ground in preparation for at least 2 terms of tory nonsense. Our political system needs radical repairs and in my view our only option should be proportional representation with a reduction in party influence and smaller parties with more independents.

    Gordon Brown (not forgeting his warmongering liar of a predesessor) has presided over the biggest property bubbly in modern british history. He has allowed personal debt to climb to astronomic preportions and, as can be seen in another article posted today, as a nation most of us have little or no savings to help us through the hard times ahead. In 1979 the tories ran an extremely efficiant campaign that led to the 1st Thatcher government, it’s relevance appears to be growing at an incredible rate as the months pass.

    Labour Isn’t Working ! – Gawd help us all.

  • GB is actually a ‘victim’ of timing. IMHO he knew the going was going to get rough, but decided (probably for egotistical reasons) to do the PM job anyway. If Blair had stayed in power he would be loathed just as much, if not more, than Brown is now. Blair had the good fortune to ride the good times and get out while the going was still good. What power does GB actually have to avert the credit crisis? None. To be honest, GB is a straw man figure whom we love to hate. However, despite his many faults (arrogance, statist, control freak, etc, etc) he is not the real culprit, who are probably the unelected financial elite who are currently making a fortune from the middle class and poor. GB is part of this wealth-transfer system, but only a relatively small part.

  • Quite right. Broon, although a completely incompetent idiot, is the victim of timing. Teflon Tony is like the scumbag that sold Foxtons, and Broon is like the idiot that bought it.

    Really good summary. It’s all there and only needs to be read and understood. I hope we are seeing the gradual extinction of this kind of political behaviour. It really has been a foul period to have lived through and more than anything else, I hope these results bring about a move toward decent behaviour from our future leaders where a change in conscience is essential.
