"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Let The Downfall Begin

I wonder if Mandelson has told Brown about this proposed 'presidential-style' live tv debate with Cameron? Perhaps he's planning on having Brown wired up so he can feed him the answers through an earpiece.

Brown has no debating skills whatsoever, we see that every week at PMQs. It will be a disaster for Brown.
UPDATE: When I posted the link there were many comments - most expressing hilarity at the idea of a live tv debate - but they've now all disappeared. This is happening all too frequently with the online msm.
UPDATE: Sadly, it seems that Downing Street has issued a denial already - Brown backs down.


  1. Mandelson is like a little boy goading a "mate" into fighting the biggest, hardest kid in the school.

    It will end in tears for Brown.

  2. Unfortunatley, I've just had to add an update Gigits - Brown's already said he won't take part. I wonder what prompted Mandelson to say it in the first place though?

  3. Mandelson is trying to destroy Brown, indeed, perhaps, the whole of the Labour Party, which can then begin to be resurrected under his guidance.

    He knew Brown would have to chicken out of this: it's all part of the undermining.

  4. Edgar is right. But why is Mandelson doing these things? He can't possibly think that he has any chance of being elected PM if he became "New New Labour" leader. Can he?

    He must be deluded beyond insanity if he does.

  5. I tend to agree Edgar - I bet there were a few phones thrown when Brown first heard what Mandy had said. A debate would have been good tv entertainment though and a YouTube sensation.

  6. Toilets Maguire says Jim does not throw phones, just wrecks the whole room!

  7. Yes, I read his article OR (!) He's a laughing stock.

  8. For a second there I though you said 'strung up' GV. I'll go back to my green tea.
