"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."

Clarke On Brown

Former Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, has once again emerged from the knife drawer to give us his thoughts on what's wrong with the Labour Party and its attitude towards the next election.

Once again he calls on Brown to resign, citing grounds of ill health, in order to 'preserve his dignity'.  He overlooks the central flaw in this strategy though:  if Brown resigned on grounds of ill health he'd be very unlikely to be given one of the top EU/IMF/ECB jobs that he's so obviously positioning himself for.  The man isn't going to resign.  Full. Stop.


  1. you missed 'delusional, arrogant, obsessive and controlling'

    oh, and 'unwanted'

  2. Duh!

    He's sick in the head, that's WHY HE WON'T RESIGN... he's a delusional megalomaniac!

  4. Ill health isn't going to work as a ruse. He was interviewed on NBC earlier, denying his eyesight is failing in his good eye and defending his health. He's going nowhere.

  5. You think that'll stop him, GV? The man is incredibly arrogant, if Mandy makes him go they'll just say it's due to ill-health or family reasons - then he'll get some sort of world position when he 'recovers'

    He doesn't need public opinion anymore, he's set for life
