Brown Will Wait

I have had a thought about the question of the moment, and it is my prediction that Gordon Brown will not be tempted by his chimerical 11% lead and will go round to next year at least if not beyond.. Think back to Tony Blair , even those who voted against him were not eaten with bitterness and many thought the divided Conservatives had it coming . Gordon does not have this luxury
Golden Brown ( taxes for fun) does not just want an administration he wants psoterity .The ephemeral swing voters may swing like a car-key party but they do not a move opinions like the politically informed enemy. These are some of the reasons why Brown will walk into a firestorm of loathing from day one .

Cash for honours – Brown ran the election campaign does anyone think he didn`t known where the money came from
Tax- 38% state governed expenditure has become 45% on his watch
Tax Credits – Delivered like a clown school graduate and failed at huge expense
Democratic deficit – His use of British-ness sets new levels of sheer cheek
Welfare- It was he who organised the expulsion if Frank Field and the genuine attempt by New Labour to reform welfare . Today 80 % of the 96 billion is something for nothing.
Public Services- he more than anyone has been the puppet master engineering a regime of cash without reform to the destruction of health education and policing


Polls cannot show you how much your opposition hates you but Gordon knows and he knows the importance of an irreconcileable resistance.
Much has been made of the example of Callaghan who dithered until the Winter of discontent . What about the example of Major though ? He had a 15% lead on the basis he was not Margaret Thatcher and with great skill charted a period of consolidation. He faced , however, the implacable opposition of those who had never had the chance to vent their rage on Thatcher. When it went wrong it was the end not only for Major but the Conservatives to this day. Brown was there to watch as the Conservative project rotted.

We know we’ve been conned and Brown knows we know . 11 % is tempting but he will be fighting for every inch of his programme if he bounced Britain into the “Second Phase”.I think he will try to establish a level of tolerance in the opposition which will be as important as sheer votes for any momentum to be maintained .

I freshen my disgust daily but others may be weak. Keep the faith.Maintain your hate

"maintain your hate?"

He THRIVES on hate. It makes him grow like a massive boil on the face of humanity.

no, the only way to overcome hatred is with good. Release the inner Good... Shower him with bunny rabbits. Present him with rainbows and butterflies... give him a giant bucket of deep fried Southern-style chicken...

oh dear, I think I'm confusing him with Little Nicky...

I think such treatment might cause me to expire from nausea ...sounds like a plan MM

Yes positive attacks not negative. Show how the Opposition will do things better not just less badly.

++ not --

Hey read Nick Robinson - if Brown is clever he'll wait but I hope he takes the plunge now.

I agree Ed..if he wins now he has won less than he may next year

So subtle. Labour has nurtured the midlands and the north's loathing of Thatcher's recognition that heavy industry and low-grade metal bashing was over, for an advanced economy, in every possible way; that Northern Rock's behaviour was not just condoned but defended and then bailed out shows the importance attached to keeping the 'loathing' constituency intact, even to the point of making London a financial laughing stock.
The levels of class hatred, still kept at simmering point by Labour at the most local levels, are just as important as the Labour-constructed client state. They are proud of 'paying back' the Thatcher years; she should never have allowed herself to be provoked.

HG I do hope you are feeling alittle better . I think the BBC in the 90s which really was ultra left was important in this
