The pot and the kettle

Gordon Brown shock tactics force a UN showdown on Mugabe

Brown says it's time to get rid of Mugabe on the grounds that (1) he is unelected (2) he holds on to power despite his deep unpopularity (3) he does this by means of using his country's resources to reward his supporters (4) his actions have led to an inflation-ridden, fast-deteriorating economy and (5) he is denying working people the fruits of their labour.

  • If Gordon Brown is the economic Guru he thinks he is we should offer him to Zimbabwe to help run the place once Mugabe is dead or deposed.

  • Gordy, Gordy, Gordy!

    Out, out, out!

    Seriously, 1-5, you couldn’t make it up. I do observe a lot of sabre rattling over Zimbabwe – to deflect attention from other things?

  • Don’t let the presbyterian rhetoric fool you chaps.

    Rab.C.Nesbitt and all his chums in glasgow east will do for the dour one in no 10. Come the glorious 24th our compadres in Scotlands fair city have no doubt had enough of these bunch of jokers to send them another message from the prolateriate. It’s another no win situation for the PM.

    They either do badly, really badly or they lose their 25th safest seat in the country and he’s gone in weeks.

    You have to laugh, their proposed candidate bottled it and didn’t even turn up for selection, citing family reasons! I can imagine his wife “Ye cany goo luv, you’re politacal career will be over before it’s began, no-one ‘l vote fey yee, they’ll be voting that t*t from downing street out te office!”

    (I apologise immediately and unreservedly to all scots (minus the badger and gb ) and the people of glasgow east.

  • One sign of a psychotic is that they cannot apply the standards they demand of others to themselves.
    It’s tragic, really; 10 years waiting for the job, and now all we get is authoritarian tinkering at home and grandstanding abroad.
    Surely some mistake….

    Wait for the UN to bring on the African Union. The entire purpose of destroying a strong Zimbabwe, which did not need outside support.

  • Almost as funny as when Bush called the Zim election a “sham.” Al Gore must have choked on his porridge.

  • I recall a brilliant quote about Ian Smith when he was in the news (for opposing majority black rule in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe in 1965)- we should swap Prime Ministers, Smith would soon have Britain on it’s feet again and ours (Harold Wilson?) would soon bring Zimbabwe to its knees! No doubt I wasn’t the only one to think it was in Zimbabwe’s interests to hold onto Ian Smith but pc Britain was having none of it. Hmm, what is Ian Smith doing these days?

  • a saver – He died aged 88 last November. He had moved to Cape Town, dined often in Hout Bay.
    planning4 – Is Mugabe a witting or unwitting tool of this plan? What is the overall plan? Mugabe did the job of destroying Zimbabwe some time ago, so why hasn’t he been removed already?
