    Has Gordon committed the ultimate sin ?

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 29 Apr 2010, 11:12 am

    Nothing smacks of hypocricy more than saying one thing in public and being caught saying exactly the opposite in private.

    Brown's gaff of calling the Labour supporter "that bigotted woman" in his limousine while still having a Sky News personal mike attached to his jacket and sending his every word to the world must be recorded as the worst political gaff in history only a week before a general election.

    I have to ask...does anybody think that this gaff might be the final nail in the Labour coffin or will it just be a one day wonder ?

    I certainly think that Gordon Brown has finally destroyed the last shreds of his faltering credibility.

    He put on a bold front at the final head-to-head.

    I would love to be a fly on the wall of his office as if I was I would maybe hear a lot more truth spoken that is not meant for the ears of his electorate.

    After that gaff I don't think many people will believe anything he says in public any more !

    I bet he wished that the ground would open up and swallow him whole !

    That is what comes of saying one thing in public and saying something else in private. He got caught out and he will never know just how much damage that did to New-Labour's chances of getting re-elected.

    Yeah mate, that will be something that will stick in his memory for the rest of his life. If Labour get trashed at the polls it is almost certain that he will get blamed for that result.

    I actually feel a bit sorry for him as - as I have said before - even if he is basically a decent and thoughtful man, he is just not up to the post of Prime Minister. He does not have the charisma, the people-skills, or the looks to pull off that task. As shallow as Blair was he at least looked like and acted like a Prime Minister.

    Well, whether Brown thinks that his boo-boo there will have an effect on the vote today I don't know. What I do know is that I am off to vote in a few minutes and I WILL NOT be voting for this failed New-Labour government.

    I wonder how many more will be like me ?
