"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."

Brown Meets Another 'Real Person'

Was it Mandelson's bright idea to push Brown to the forefront of campaigning and get him out and about meeting 'real people' rather than Labour activists?  Or was it Brown himself who truly thought he was a Beloved Leader and that the people would flock to him?  Whoever it was, it isn't working:
He remarked to Jayne Shinwell, a contract development worker, that the firm was doing well in China.  The 40-year-old mother of two responded: "Our company's doing well everywhere, but I think it's in spite of you."

  1. Isn't he now trying to lose, given the verdict of the Governor of the Bank of England, that whoever takes over will have to take steps so horrendous to avoid ending up like Greece, that they will be out of power for a generation.

    Whoever wins this one is finished.

    If I were Brown I'd let the Tories win.

  2. Yes, that's why we think the Conservative campaign has been so lacklustre too - no-one wants to win this election! btw I see Alex Salmond's on Question Time tonight, should be interesting.
