Another nail

Now the Trade Unions have joined in the criticism of Gordon Brown and his policy abolishing the 10p tax rate. In today's Observer TUC top man, Brendan Barber, accuses the Prime Minister of being lured by the 'siren voices' of those campaigning for the super-rich and the corporate elite. Harsh words and ones that could do real damage in the run-up to the local government elections on 1 May.

Even the Foreign Secretary is joining in, though he uses far more diplomatic language. Writing in today's News of the World David Miliband says that Labour is now the 'political underdog' and that the Prime Minister has to 'see the world through the eyes of voters'.

As if Labour did not have enough problems a poll in the Sunday Mirror today gives the Tories a 10 point lead on 40 per cent, while the Liberal Democrats have gained two points at 19 per cent. The local government elections could prove to be really interesting.
"....The local government elections could prove to be really interesting."

And as the old Chinese curse goes - may you live in interesting times.
There's a group started up on Faceboo, "Gordon Brown SHOULD GO NOW!" Good timeing and apt!
