Way to go Caroline!!!!

Brown will be finished by Monday.

Breaking news... will someone at the press conference ask a question on this?

andanotherthing said...

OMG. I cant believe what i am seeing. Brown is totally cracking up and lying with virtually everything he says. More will surely resign after seeing this. Its truly dreadful

Does he know? - have you texted a question to one of the journos in the presser?

Siberian Tory said...

Damn I'm going to lose a bet with my non-political girlfriend. She reckoned he'd be gone withing two weeks!

Neil said...

I wonder if anyone at the press conference will break the news to him. That would shake him!

Chris Blore said...

Please someone ask a question on this at the press conference!

Think This said...

Yes, a question has just been asked!

Chris Blore said...

Yes, Waugh has done it! I love that man!

Fat Boab said...

That was the most incredible stutter I've ever seen.

And Craig Murray to stand in Norwich North.

javelin said...

Last night I called her an anal leech.

Now I wonder if her timing is as good in the sack.

Tony Jones said...

Do you feel the judgement of the people? What a brilliant question

To paraphrase a famous man: “Gordon Brown, I have a message for you in the middle of the election campaign. I have a message for you: We have kicked out all your coucillors. Gordon Brown, as they say in your language in the boxing bars around Madison Square Garden in New York: Your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!”

This press conference is just surreal now.

FEAR. Sorry

Uncle Bob said...

This is getting ridiculous now. Every other nation must be pissing themselves at us!

The Boiling Frog said...

Didn't get the top job then?

So much for loyalty to Blears, see how she see does in the reshuffle before jumping ship. Pathetic

Think This said...

lol, over 350 elected MP's and not one wants to be Europe Minister!

Watching the press conference. At the beginning, I was annoyed. Then I laughed at how ridiculously Brown is, and how stupid he looks. Now I am really pissed off. What a twat.

JBW said...

This is better than a Brian Rix Farce!

JuliaM said...

Now Paul Murphy's gone too....

Sue said...

Someone say something to him!!!

Anyone else hear the mobile phone text messages bleeping at the press concerence as the Caroline Flint news hit. Hoping someone will hit Brown with it...the reaction would be priceless.

Is he on drugs?

andanotherthing said...

Nokia shares have soared!

Neil said...

How many times now has he made a supremely arrogant statement and then said "but I'm not arrogant or complacent"?

SHB said...

I saw Mandelson speak in Mumbai in January, cracked a good joke but the rest of what he said was weak.

None of us who were there were that impressed and he didn't even get a round of applause when he took the podium.

That line from GB that British business men are impressed by what Mandy has done is garbage.

andanotherthing said...

Actually this is painful to watch. Hes repeating himself all the time. Somebody drag him out of there. I bet Blair is watching this and pissing himself laughing!

Pogo said...

Sterling has dropped 1.5cents against the $US in the last couple of hours. Looks like the only person impressed with Brown's performance is Brown himself.

w/v pollyr - prescient?

andanotherthing said...

Iain what do you make of this? It has to be the end surely? He can`t last the weekend.

SHB said...

GB 'We listen to what people say...'

Then resign and call a General Elecion cos that what people are saying.

HarveyR said...

Flint not going quietly.

Thought making a statement of loyalty would get her into the cabinet.

Wrong!

Northampton Saint said...

No talent left on the government Commons benches..hey, lets make another friend a Peer

lavrentiy beria said...

I hope someone has made sure the nuclear button has been disconnected, the Prime Minister is as mad as a very large box of bipolar frogs.

Mark M said...

Hoon and McNulty have also gone by the way. It's almost impossible to keep up with this.

Mirtha Tidville said...

Lets look on the bright side, this hissy fit of talentless moron, will hardly be missed. Could`nt get her own way and walked......very good riddance
