An interesting but worthless column from Jackie Ashley.
"It won't be easy for Gordon Brown to dig himself out of the hole he has fallen into in recent weeks. But a broad back, an ability to say sorry, a coolness under fire and an unwillingness to dump on colleagues would certainly help.”
Worthless, I say, because Brown enjoys precisely none of these qualities. Ashley's remedy for Gordon Brown's problems would, um, seem to be that he cease to be Gordon Brown.
