Having read Alistair Darling's article in today's Guardian I am now convinced that Gordon Brown's days as our "Chosen One" are numbered. It is inconceivable that he can hang on much past the Labour Party's annual conference in Manchester without some miracle occurring.
When the Chancellor of the Exchequer thinks "that Labour faces its toughest challenge in a generation (and) admits that Brown and the cabinet are partly to blame for Labour's woes because they have 'patently' failed to explain the party's central mission to the country, leaving voters "pissed off"...then you know that Prescott's "tectonic plates" have shifted.
Economic forcasters are predicting 2 million unemployed before Christmas. If this is true then whatever Gordon Brown tries to do ressurect house prices falling at 10% per year so far will probably be pointless.
No change there, then. Gordon has always been pointless.
