Polly's upset with Gordon

Polly Toynbee's upset, do you think she's just realised that Gordon isn't the man she thought he was? "For political vacuity and ineptitude, Labour has really excelled this week"..... "These are the images that the ghost of the election yet to come would summon up for Ebeneezer Scrooge Brown. Is it too late, Brown might ask the ghost. No, of course not. It's never too late for redemption - or "change" as Brown calls it without changing anything. For despite all this, the Tories are still only a few points ahead, nowhere near where they should be. That's some comfort, but frankly it's hard to believe enough people would turn out to vote for four more years of this. A pusillanimous cabinet bungles its safety-first policies, failing to appease unappeasable enemies while losing most of its friends. But imagine if Labour now reversed all this week's cornucopia of bad decisions. Look into the future - and avoid it."

When even Polly Toynbee turns on Gordon Brown, things must be feeling really bleak in the Number 10 bunker...
