Where is Gordon the cry goes out. The Newspapers are asking,
the bloggers are asking, the Party workers and fellow Ministers are asking, where is Gordon?, why is
he not here to lead us?
The past months have taken a lot out of Gordon, formulating
his last budget, organising and running the failed election campaign in Scotland,
but this is the man who has long aspired to be the next prime minister.
Has he reached that point in his career where he must now
make decisions, that point that each and every one of us at some stage in our
lives reaches, where we know that the one step, the next step up is not for us,
that inside we know that we just couldn’t do the job, at least not without make
a total fool of ourselves, it would be a step too far, way beyond our comfort
Is he ready to step into the big boys shoes, and lead
Britain, or has he really reached his natural limit, and like a frightened
schoolboy stands in the corner of the biggest classroom wetting himself at the
prospect of being propelled into the limelight, being visible to the nation, to
face the questions, the ridicule and the jokes that are part and parcel of the
The man who has been variously described as being seriously physiologically
flawed, a man with Stalinist tendencies has just reached his crossroads. So
just what is this secretive micro-manager doing.
It is possible that we may rue the day we called for Brown to take on Blair’s
mantle, for we may ultimately be faced with a much more dire and darker Brown,
and watch him come out fighting taking Britain
by storm. A Brown with tendencies that are more Stalinist than we ever
imagined, plunging Britain into a time of darkness and despair not seen of anyone
in a position of power in this country since Oliver Cromwell.
The tools are all in place, the laws which would allow such
authoritarian control have been carefully nurtured over the past 10 years. Will
this man pick them up and use them against the people of Britain,
or put them back in the shed to let them rust.
We can only wait and see which Brown we will get, or
ultimately, if he does decide that he has reached his natural limit of ability,
will we see him run away, to take the easy way out of the mess that he has helped
to create, in the same fashion as John Reid.
