Is Labour Dead In The Water?*

Is Gordon Brown and his Labour Party really becalmed and drifting onto the rocks? (Some of his erstwhile cronies think so HERE.)

A lot of us would like to believe this is the case. After all, we have lived through the HEIST decade - High Expenditure and (real) Inflation and Stealth Taxes - under his stewardship and look where we are now.

Now he and his crew have no wind in their sails and no matter how many re-launches he attempts he just can't get back to a safe haven. As in the case of the Ancient Mariner he has an albatross around his the neck.

(*I claim the prize for the most maritime references to the current woes of the Labour Party!)
