The tories may think Gordon Brown is a dope but he's no idiot.
The labour party's latest attempt to change leaders will come to nothing. It's far too late in Brown's leadership and especially with a general election within less than four months.
To be fair here's an article in praise of Gordon Brown by Walter Humes. I can't agree with the author on many counts but it does show Brown has support from many sources.
I'm becoming weary of hearing Gordon Brown is from an 'average' Scottish family. That is just not true. He was born into privilege. Any child 'of the manse' was treated differently from the local farm labourer's child, although I'm sure teachers weren't aware of their prejudice.
Gordon Brown also had parents who could afford to sent him to university. I'm convinced there were many thousands of children in Scotland in those days who would have loved to attend university, yet their families couldn't afford it. I know, I was part of the education system in those days.
For Mr Brown to be using the 'class' card against the tories is a really bad move. He's part of the class system. Yes it's true he wasn't in the Bullington Club, but if he had attended an English university he may have belonged to the communist party of Great Britain for example like many of his contemporaries?
There's no one in the labour party who has the strength of character, personality or enough interest in the good of this country - hence my opinion that Gordon Brown will not be replaced. That isn't to say that there are not more capable labour MPs around, perhaps there are, but today's labour party conveys a complete lack of interest in the care of the people of this country. Labour's ambition is power. Nothing more nothing less.
