The tories have discovered discrepancies in the formal transcript of Gordon Brown's speech orated from the exterior of No 10 yesterday.
The FT reports a third of the actual text has been deleted and new sections added.
Strangely, his declaration that he was from a 'middle class' family has disappeared. Kenneth Roy has written a splendid piece 'Ordinary, middle-class Mr Brown' in which he explains class and social differences in Scotland.
Now why would his spin doctors want to omit the obvious pride Gordon Brown has in coming from a middle class family?
On a more serious note, what kind of PM would permit any of his speeches to be amended, particularly since it was also video recorded? Does the saviour of the world think he can change history? Quite possibly.
