What is so wrong with this picture?
Dead soap character preferred over Gordon!
Just been having a good look through David Miliband’s election leaflet which is currently being delivered across the South Shields constituency, and I could not help but notice that the man on the left (Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, Mr. Miliband’s boss) doesn’t even get a look in. That’s right, no picture, no words of thanks or praise, no quotations,zip, zilch, nothing at all. It’s as though Labour’s Prime Minister has been totally air brushed out of the campaign – gone, vanished!
In his place we get pictures and/or quotes from South Shields “celebs” Ken Gibson, Ray Spencer, Bashir Malik, and dead soap character Vera Duckworth who joins Miliband in repeating the lie that there are more policemen on the beat! We can also see pictures of a man more used to inter galactic space travel, which is pretty apt considering the miles that Mr. Miliband is putting in to stay out of South Shields!
So just why is the Labour Party doing their level best to help us forget about Gordon Brown? Was it something he said, or done, or should have done, you know, like face an election to become the leader of the party or something? I’d not be surprised to learn that the only constituency in the UK to feature the PMs mug on a Labour leaflet might be Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath!
When they come knocking on your door, ask why they are so ashamed of their Prime Minister.
