What a dark day for politics. Brown will no doubt say it has nothing to do with him but it would be nice if the question was put to him about it at his monthly press conference, wouldn't it? Any takers?

Nothing You Could Ever Say To Me...
Remember when Brown told Blair: "Nothing you could ever say to me could ever make me believe a word you say." Well that's what the entire country can collectovely say to Gordon Brown this morning. The Is There More to Life Than Shoes blog has this story from the courts yesterday (also blogged by Guido), where Brown's barrister told the court "Manifesto pledges are not subject to legitimate expectation". Translated, that means: you can't seriously expect us to implement what we promise in a manifesto, can you?"
