Gordon Brown, according to the popular consensus, is up shit creek without a paddle.
In the London mayoral election his party could suffer the embarrassment of being beaten by Tory buffoon Boris Johnson while in the local council elections the Tories will do well in the suburbs, the Lib Dems will do well in rural areas but worse, Labour could see its traditional hardcore vote crumble in the theyd-vote-for-a-dog-turd-if-you-stuck-a-Labour-rosette-on-it industrial heartlands of the North and Midlands.
At such times a man needs to know he has friends he can rely on.
Gordie ought to be able to rely on the loyalty of former best mate Tony Blair, after all Blair did promise undying loyalty to his successor. But Tone has a new best mate now, Lord Levy, a man so sycophantic it is rumoured he does not fart without getting approval from the former P.M.
So we must ask is it any coincidence Lord Levy has published his memoirs which contain some damning revelations about Blairs true opinion of Gordon (Gordon is a moron) a week before these crucial elections take place.
Blair has categorically denied ever calling Brown a liar or saying Labour could not possibly win the next election under Gordies leadership.
Can we believe Blair?
Well if we did it would require that Lord Levy had developed the ability to think for himself. And that is just stretching our credulity too far.
