Put another jumper on (that makes 3 now ) and hunker down, it’s gonna b-b-b-be c-c-c-cold this w-w-w-winter !
Gordon Brown faced further threats to his faltering premiership today as a Labour MP and a union leader joined a chorus of criticism from his own side. Like a rabbit caught in the headlights, he appears to be totally out of touch with what is actually going on. His assertion that fuel poverty would be reduced (while actually doing nothing to prevent that scenario) is just more hot air. The only situation that comes close to this level of "head in the sandness" was after the poll-tax riots in March 1991 when cabinet ministers had to actually spell it out to Thatcher what her policy had acheived (the virtual destruction of a square mile of the capitals west end) !
