No Longer Waiting for Gordo….


After weeks of protracted negotiations, Gordon Brown has been finally anointed as the next Prime Minister. Gordo has managed to shake off inner-party rivals demanding a contest. It is doubtless nice for Mr Tony that he can stay an extra six months in Office during which time he can sort out his retirement plans.
And I thought the Labour Party elected its leader…
So the Queen’s Speech yesterday was a completely meaningless event. We now have to all intents and purposes a lame duck government. The immeasurably grave Iraq disaster rumbles on...
Interestingly, one of the terms of the new Bliar/Broon entente (reported by the Daily Mail a week or two back) is that TB will apparently not publish his memoirs until Gordon Brown ceases to be Prime Minister. I suspect the lovely Cherie might scupper that particular deal. No love lost between Big Gordo and Cherie of course. And Cherie as we all know has a passion for easy money. I can hardly wait...

Well the queens speech, even if bliar wasn't going, was still a pile of shite and we'd heard it all before, and I honestly can't believe they actually wrote such shite and presented it. They have lost votes by doing so because most people would have been saying 'guffaaawwww' at most of it, they are fucking useless.

As to cherie bliar...I think she will fall into disrepute and obscurity once Bliar goes as PM, and Bliar will too. That sound unlikely? I don't think so for a simple reason...he has clug on too long, far too long, and is discredited. How many people will pay £100k to see this cunt taken the piss out of at a dinner? Mark my words.

As to Brown and Bliar sudden entente cordial...how many times have we heard this only to see the fighting start again.

Can it still be called NuLabour under Gordon? It's going to be a totally different style of leadership, more Dark Labour, it could be their darkest days.

Maent to add that the Labour party, as a party, doesn't elect their leaders.

MP's and unions have all the power and members very little...which I suppsoe is just as well seeing as they have no fucking memebers left.

The Queen's Speech was indeed a fine specimen of NuLab dross. TB has clung on too long. But he'll be gone by late may-early june 2007. You or I might not want to receive an audience with Princess Emily but I am afraid he's going to mjake a fortune in the US of A. As for the idea of Cherie Blair falling into disrepute and obscurity, how much lower can she go?
Yup, the Labour Party have no fucking members left. Hopefully, Labour will collectively disappear up their own ideological arse.
ellee, the Brown years will be bleak beyond imagining...which is why we should be looking forward to them.

I'm in touch with a pal in states for business almost every other day and while I have definitely put him right about Bliar, ô¿ô , he also said the yanks were getting heartily sick of him too and his fall can be plotted alongside Bush'

One thing to consider about Bliar in the US is that Bush supporters hate Clinton, and even many democrats hate clinton, but Bliar is seen as close to bush and clinton and is very much ostracised by many.

One other simple thing though is that in the States you have to perform if you are to earn your crust or it will soon dry up, and Bliar cannot speak well in public and is not a natural orator, however much his supporters will try and say he is, and he is not anything like a Clinton for sheer magnetism, whoch is what has kept clinton going.

All in all I think Bliars carreer will be short lived.

True enough. TB is a very polarisng figure to put it mildly.I agree that the quality of his public speaking skills have always been over-rated by the media. Clinton he ain't. It's good to hear that our American cousins are losing interest in TB.
