bad news for clegg??????

I think it was the Tories and Lib Dems that did badly (tories 2 points worse) and then the post said that you couldnt take in to account Clegg being the new leader...

Interesting spin Iain...

With respect to Iain Martin and his wife, I believe he is wrong. Women dislike Brown for many reasons. Let me count the ways:

1. He is not man enough to take responsibility for anything.

2. He is not man enough to sack people who are harming the government (which is fine by me and long may he continue to let the harm-doers slither around the corridors of power hissing quietly). He daren't even sack Harriet Harman who is so eminently sackable, my cat could have sacked her in between bites of his crunchies. And he is a French cat.

3. Brown's performance in the HoC is timid, defensive, unleaderlike, and reeks of injured entitlement.

4. He oversees a government based on bossiness and a determination to destroy our country and our people and he makes up lies to answer this charge.

5. He signed the dog crap of the EU constitution without the referendum that had been promised by the Labour Party. He cannot even honour his own party's commitments, yet he hasn't been elected in his own right.

6. His home life seems a bit ... odd.

7. He's touchy, which is immature.
