Ben Chu: Brown-baiting to Brown sugar

I've abhorred  the media's Brown-baiting in recent years.
 

But, equally, Brown shouldn't be exalted now that he's announced he's going.


The idea seems to have got around that Brown nobly accepted personal responsibility for Labour's defeat in the general election. But what he actually said this afternoon was:


"The reason that we have a hung parliament is that no single party and no single leader was able to win the full support of the country. As leader of my party I must accept that that is a judgement on me."


Accepting that you did not win the "full support" of the country (just like your rivals, mind) is surely not really the same as accepting that the public rejected you and that you led your party to defeat.

can a useless fat unelected warmongering thug declare that he's noted the results of the election, in which he lost...

... but he'll remain as PM for as long as he feels like it?

If Britain had any GUTS, they'd be dragging this yankee-serving turd out through the door of 10 Downing Street to face the music.

I swear he's mentally ill? He hasn't realised that he's lost, and the country wants him gone in double-quick time?
