Gordon Brown's Press Conference.

This is just a quick summary of the reaction to Gordon Brown's press conference. I think the first thing to note was that while the press were obviously not going to give Gordon an easy ride, it could have gone a lot worse for him. This was down to Gordon being on home turf and some very clever manipulation of the proceedings. Gordon failed to satisfactorily answer any of the question put to him, but then he didn't have to because he did not allow follow up questions. Without the chance to question Gordon's answers the assembled journalist had to sit and listen to him spout party policy and spin. Gordon also managed to get a large chunk of the question put to him by the (some would say friendly) BBC representatives.

Gordon said he took responsibility for the mess that had been made of the last few weeks, but he still maintained that the polls did not force him to bottle it. If that is true, why did he put the Labour party on an election footing if he wasn't going to hold an election?

This has left me even more sure that we need rid of Mr Gordon Brown.

Its not true. Brown starts many of his statements with the line "if I'm honest" - its a trick.

He's not being honest and that should be no surprise given his record over the last ten years.

The man reveals in deceit and treachery. Never mind the politics - he's not fit to lead any British political party.

Man in a shed,

We have seen transparent politics today. It has been more than clear what a bare faced deceitful git he is.

I'm watching him now talking about Iraq and it's just more of the same. He is not having a good day, and long may it continue.

Of course get rid of the Big Brown One, but how to get rid of the BrownBC (formerly the BlairBC)now associated with the Murdoch Empire. Thank god for the bloggers, without whom we should be blind and deaf.

You never know, things could change. It all depends on how embarrassing Brown becomes.
