I got you in to this mess so I am the right man to get you out! Keep digging boys!!

Gordon Brown's future uncertain as Cabinet ministers plot after Glasgow East debacle

The Labour Party has no option but to replace him as leader or face certain defeat at the next general election, said one. "We cannot go any lower," Err isn't that what they keep saying about the housing market? "We are at rock bottom". Nope I still think house prices have a long way to fall and so does Gordon's reputation for economic matters! "There is only one thing that can be done, and it's a change of leader." Nope it's the economy stupid not the leader! Economic figures revealed that Britain was facing recession, with economic growth falling in May and June.

  • I disagree with the article.

    If NuLabour think they can “just” replace Gordo with “another PM” they are wrong. It was bad enough to have Gordo as a non elected PM but at least he had some profile as Chancellor (remember – no more boom & bust).

    Any suggestion of a replacement will have all opposing parties demanding a General Election. After all, there will be big changes of approach and so – NuLAbour are stuck with him!

    A string of bad news is expected on the economy as the inflation/sub-prime/Oil/House Price problems play out. Expect further by-election losses and another NuLAb disaster at the European elections next year.

  • What happened in Glasgow will not be repeated throughout the country, In Glasgow they lost their large majority and were marginally defeated, almost everywhere else country they will be completely annihilated.

    The party is over for Labour. Doesn’t matter who is in charge they cannot win another election. But the Conservatives should be careful what they wish for: the sooner they get into power, the longer they will have to cope with the appalling economic mess, and as things get worse, which they certainly will, they just might find themselves taking the flack for it. One thing is for certain, whoever is in power over the next few years will have to take some extremely unpopular decisions if they are serious about tackling the country’s economic problems.

    As much I dislike Gordon Brown I also find it unreasonable to expect the electorate of this country to accept another PM with no election.
    This is what comes from having 2 men at the top of a party for so long. Nobody else is allowed to ‘look’ like a possible PM.

    Does he have the power to call an election himself i would like to know?

    Would be amusing if the rest of the labour gang got together and tried to force him out only for him to call a general election in response. Unlikely scenario but I’d love to see it happen.

  • G old – No real reason to sell it off so quick, if he waited until know perhaps he could dig us out of the sh*te he’s got us into.
    O rdinary people – let down by 18 years of tory gorvernment and now have been rewarded another 10 years of it.
    R efusal – The clunking fist refused to calm the property market when he had the chance (1997 onwards).
    D entists – After 10 years of Nu-Liebor I’m still paying private.
    O ld labour new lies – Tax and Spend till the country and economy goes POP.
    N ew houses – If they’d built some bloody council houses maybe the property market might have not bubbled & burst.

    B lood on your hands Mr Brooon – He/they lied us into war and gor blimey it’s taken Bliar a good 12 months to remove his head from G-Dubblya’s @rse.
    R ights – Our rights eroded, 28 now 42 days, terror laws that won’t stop terror, the streets aint safer and the prisons are full!
    O h no not again – Not another policy made on the hoof, bets chancellor in modern times, 10p tax, I rest my case!
    W ar – what is it good for, absolutely lying, say it agin! The 45 minutes, al-qaeda in Iraq, David “scapegoat” Kelly, 100s of 1000s of dead and injured people!
    N ot listening – He keeps telling us he’s listening but surely he can’t be otherwise he would have f00ked off!
    E uro – Perhaps not the best desicion to stay out, only time will tell, it’s gonna cost you a lotta going to the Costas this year.

    I want Gordo to stay. Surely he’s the best bet to maximise house price reductions. The more he fooks things up, the more peeps can’t afford a mortgage and the lower prices go.

  • The Labour Party are all behind Gordo, but remember that you have to behind someone before you can stab them in the back.

  • afrobaggie @ 8.

    Good point. I suspect that the career politicians in the cabinet and the myriad of MP’s who look likeley to lose their seats in the next election have stopped worrying about forming the next government and are instead wondering what they will do on theopen jobs market.

    I do suspect that Brooons days are numbered. The tough bit is working out whether he actually manages to stumble on until the party conference in the autumn.

    From memory just about every toppled leader / dictator whatever in world history has had the full support of their peers – then been toppled from power.
    He will not last 2 years. He looks utterly defeated ( and ugly ).

  • Truth is the UK has no political leader with the drive needed to get the country back to work making stuff that other people need. Cameron as an alternative? Do me a favour. Yep the Tories will get in but “Great” Britain is freakin doomed. McMillan had it right-we never had it so good.
