What is going on? I'm agreeing with politicians.Well, partly anyway. John Prescott, our famous binge eater and I think he has involvement in F1 or something, has said that there is no one in the Labour party who has the skills to replace the PM. Read here. It's almost right.
I agree with him that there is no one in the party with the skills to be PM. Notice I have changed it slight as the implication that Gordo has the skills because of his previous experience as Chancellor is laughable. It's only now that the general public are seeing his mismanagement and incompetence over the last 11 years and they don't like it. Even the ones on his payroll like Glasgow East are unhappy with it. There is no one in the labour party, and that includes the current PM, with the skills to be PM. That is why it would be a big mistake for labour for Gordo to stand down as they would get annihilated. However, on the bright side, labour supporters are so thick that they actually still believe that labour is for the common man. LOL. Harman and the other clowns in the cabinet actually still believe that if Gordo was out the way he would take the blame for everything and, to be honest, knowing that people are still labour supporters atm, I am not 100% convinced that they are not right.
But back to Prescott. In a more optimistic note he also said Gordo would come back from his holiday renewed and ready. Not much chance of that as Gordo will have more time to actually see the news and read the papers and will be unable to come out with some quick off the cuff knee jerk legislation to fix it. In addition his *cough* loyal colleagues will be running about during their lengthy holidays plotting and planning. I suspect his stress levels will be sky high when he returns. Fingers crossed. A heart attack would look better on the history books than anything else. (Next time not superglue you berk but rattlesnake venom or something. Plonker.)
Personally I think Gordo is doing the normal thing that he does when faced with uncertainty, he does nothing, no decisions, no risks, nada, ziltch, SFA. It's the only thing he sees that he can do at this point, sit tight and hope that the economy changes enough to give labour a chance in the polls in 2010. People are stupid, history shows that, look as far back as 2005 to see, they forget very quickly and if things pick up then these last few years will be forgotten when his core voters look at what he has done for them over the years and the Tories with their wishy washy policies will be unable to compete.
However, one thing Gordo has shown he can't control is the economy. It'll shoot downhill so fast we will be looking at the Soviet Union for ties and advice on how to control the revolting plebs. It could even get to the state where he can call the elections off until it suits. Maybe not this time but if they get in again, certainly that time. Mugabe style.
Mmmm. Maybe I'm not actually agreeing with him at all. Just one of his million and one statements most of which are not worth investing the limited time I have to listen to.
