"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."

Wordle: Mandelson's Conference Speech 28.9.09Click to enlarge.
The word most used was 'party' followed by new, change, back, growth, government, Labour, people, public, Cameron.

Paddy Power have opened their latest ‘Brown Bingo’ betting on the first phrase the PM uses in his speech this afternoon. They make “Labour” the 2/1 favourite whilst other words include ‘recession’ at 14/1, ‘recovery’ at 16/1, ‘cuts’ at 18/1 and 'troops' at 50/1. “I would like to tender my resignation” is at 500/1. Global has to be in there as well but I couldn't find the odds on that. Difficult times, hard times, fightback. However he re-arranges the words it will be the same old formulaic twaddle we've heard before.

Interestingly, they're also offering 20/1 on Mandelson to take Brown’s place in the TV Leaders' debate which is something I was mulling over yesterday. Here's the full SP


  1. "I resign" would be nice. But considering Brown's state of mind, a non runner.

  2. Yes, but at 500/1 it's got to be worth £1 just for the hell of it - but probably less chance of winning it than the lottery.
