Smeargate - and implosion.
The reason that 'smeargate' is not going away is that there seems no recognition by Gordon Brown of the seriousness of what has been revealed. He cannot accept that the brutal strategy that has maintained his power base for many years has been laid bare. The people of Britain are shocked by what they see exposed before them. They are concerned that Gordon Brown is a threat to Britain's democratic heritage. This is no longer a row between political parties. Today's most wounding attacks on Labour have not been coming from the Conservatives. They've been coming from the Labour people who have been brutalised by these thugs, and from journalists who have been aware for years that Gordon Brown has surrounded himself with a small cabal of ruthless operators who would stop at nothing to destroy anyone who does not pay homage at the Prime Minister's feet. The reason it no longer matters that Gordon Brown says 'Sorry' is that no-one would think he meant it. Sure, he regrets that such vile emails were written, but we know that he has employed Damian McBride for ten years because he believes that all opposition to himself must be squashed. Macavity never did know about the specifics - but approved of the generality. The troops just carried out what they believed their boss wanted them to do. Thank God that the scales have fallen from the eyes of the British people.
