Yesterday I wrote that Frank Field among others was encouraging Labour MP’s to rebel and put Gordon Brown out of his misery but besides a few MP’s it seems that most aren’t prepared to put country and/or party before office/salary. Paul Waugh has written about Brown’s meeting last night with the PLP which clearly shows that most of Brown’s troops are prepared to criticise him behind his back but don’t have the bottle to do so to his face. What the clapping and table thumping was for is a total mystery. After being routed in the local and European elections and allowing the BNP to gain two MEP’s, I’d have thought they would have shown a little remorse and humility instead of behaving like a football crowd celebrating an important goal.
It’s a bit like the CEO of a major company coming to a shareholders meeting to explain why the company has made a loss of millions only to be greeted by a standing ovation!!
And then they wonder why people won’t vote for them!
