General Election Poster - Gordon Brown's dodgy moral compass

I really don't care if I get abuse for posting this picture. I have the deepest sympathy for Gordon Brown's loss, but I do think that he is being badly advised by Alastiar Campbell and Piers Morgan. Team Brown had plenty of time to pull the tears for Piers show if they wanted to prove that this is not dirty electioneering.

No abuse from me, my friend. You're absolutely spot on.

Completely agree - commented on it on my 'occasional blog' - I just felt so angry at him trying to use a little child's death as a vote puller. Vile, vile, vile - both he & Sobbin' Sarah.

No abuse deserved, it was a calculated and cynical move by Brown.

Excellent, could become a meme. Post your two compass points...

Mine for today would be on John Smith's death.

1) Phone his wife with condolences.
2) Phone Blair and stitch up his job.

We know from 'Tears for Piers' which he chose!

Would Cameron be allowed to get away with it in an interview with Morgan just before an election?

The U turn?

U turn if you want to . . .Tot's not for turning . . Brown's the most abhorrent creature ever to have walked the earth (even worse than T-Rex!)

What upsets me about this media treatment of Brown is that no one is focusing on just how bad he was as a Chancellor. In his Mansion House speech of 2007 he said:

"So I congratulate you Lord Mayor and the City of London on these remarkable achievements, an era that history will record as the beginning of a new golden age for the City of London."

"And I believe it will be said of this age, the first decades of the 21st century, that out of the greatest restructuring of the global economy, perhaps even greater than the industrial revolution, a new world order was created."

He said this just as the sub-prime crisis was breaking! This is the worst incompetence in British history but the press portrays him as financial "saviour of the world!". (See Could the credit crunch have been foreseen?);
