have you produced a verdict thread on Browns' speech yet?
would be my guess on his virdict. He's clearly decided to follow Cameron's lead and no have an opinion on anything.
He was certainly a lot more forthcoming than normal.
What's your opinion, Theo?
I will say I was a bit surprised to see how positive the Metro was about it this morning. They're normally quicker to lay into Labour.
in the hope of others reply to it also. Seeing as the initial thread regarding Browns' speech was started by him yesterday, I thought I would pose the question.
I'm getting the hang of this...
he needed to get the whole of Labour and as much of the media as possible onside. He seems to have pretty much done that. The public - unless they were sitting on the fence beforehand over him - are always going to take longer to come round, and in many ways for them it'll be his actions that speak louder.
I'd be a little surprised if there's not a bit of a bounce in the weekend polls for both Labour and him personally, although with Cameron to go next it could easily be eroded again yet.
It was just like WWE. I expect to see her tearing Samantha Cameron's hair out next week
speeches, unless I'm horribly mistaken, are very rarely of any particular importance.
Also Gordon Brown said it, so you know
And not just about Browns' speech....
As far as disclaimers go, that's like being the third most popular rapper in Reykjavik.
The majority of Labour luvvies and delegates in the hall enjoyed it, but then they would, wouldn't they?
It'll have a negligible effect on Labour's poll standings, the party is still fractured and they're still going to lose the next general election in a MASSIVE way.
Brown will never lead Labour to electoral victory.
