The news now is that Gordon Brown could happily walk away from his job and become a teacher.
I am not surprised he feels this way, such is the relentless criticism he gets. I am suprised that he admits it though, while admiring his courage to admit it.
I have sympathy for Gordon. I think Tony Blair sank the ship of the labour government. His clever trick was to leap off before the final wave closed over while slapping the captains cap on Brown.
I think Blair sank the government with the invasion of Iraq. I don’t think God will hold them guiltless. Is this the judgement of God that they are seeing? I find it interesting that a government typified by arrogance is being so humbled.
Trouble is, where is there a party of moral fibre and godliness?
