There seems little doubt that the loss of those two discs was this Government's "Black Wednesday". It's all downhill from here. Gordon Brown is John Major without the underpants or the electoral mandate.
Spare a thought for Tony Blair. It must be hard trying not to crack a rib when you are laughing so much.
What we need here is someone to be John Smith to Brown's John Major. ("The reverse Midas touch"...."hotels fall into the sea").
Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Dr John Vincent Cable:
The House has noticed the Prime Minister's remarkable transformation in the last few weeks from Stalin to Mr Bean, creating chaos out of order rather than order out of chaos.
Razor sharp. Hilarious. So true.
Vince Cable is (was) an old friend of Brown. So he knows his vulnerabilities. And of course, Vince trumps Brown on figures.
Right place. Right time. Right man.
Well done Vince!
