Has Gordon Brown so screwed his cabinet, so discredited Labour, that he can no longer govern? Is it all going to Hell in a hand car for Gordy? What do you think, goys and birls? Anyone wanna start a poll on how long he'll last?

OK, let's have a show of hands here.

How many of you know who Gordon Brown is?

How many of you know why i capitalized the word "Labour," and spelled it in that barbaric manner?

I always thought Brown would fail, but I have not watched him closely enough to know how and why he finally set himslf up for it.

With the elections looming and the recent resignation of 4 PM's, 2 from cabinet level positions, it would appear as though Labour and Brown are indeed doomed. But who can tell in British politics?

@edgarblythe,
Run over to Google News, EB, and do a search on his name. It's quite entertaining, in a "rats deserting a sinking ship" sort of way.

I would say that he is in fact screwed, if not for the fact that the public hardly seems to like the other team any better.

an interesting aside, i listen to a podcast of The Scott Mills Show on Radio 1, they play a game in studio that involves people on the show guessing the answers to response to various questions or situations, they regularly go out onto "stupid street", a street near the Radio 1 offices, one day they posed this question, they showed 10 people a photo of the entrance to 10 Downing Street and asked them who lived there, they also asked them who lives in a pineapple under the sea, not 1 person said Gordon Brown (they would have accepted the Prime Minister) and everybody got Spongebob Squarepants

@Setanta,


Daniel Hannan recently gave him a rather feisty and very publicized tongue lashing

We need our very own Daniel Hannan here in the states to dress down Obama and his supporters in the same manner.

Agreed.

The only way that would work is if we first cleaned out all existing politicians in the house, senate and white house.

@H2O MAN,
i could see the conservative party splitting into a hardcore more fundamentalist group and a more moderate group, the moderates would probably be able to pull liberals who are put off by the fundamentalism the now see as core to the conservative party

@djjd62,

The Libertarian party is in place and ready to move, but the Republicrats, Democans
and main stream media are working together to prevent them from participating.

Yeah, but -- to paraphrase the Bambino -- SpongeBob had a better year.
