It's all about trust, baby!

It's all about trust, baby! It's all about you, and me. That appears to be the sum total of the message from Gordon Brown in the speech he has just made at Bloombergs now that he has become Prime Minister in waiting


Apparently he is going to use the next six weeks to prepare for government. Has he forgotten about the last ten years?


Every initiative and reform has been funded, or not, by Brown. The hand of Brown is all over the last decade. Blair’s biggest failing was not to have sacked him so that he could get his reforms through.


Jon Craig from Sky made the point regarding the G8 summit and the EU summit and asked the Prime Minister in waiting ‘shouldn’t he attend?’  Gordon thinks not, that there is an appropriate procedure for these things.


Shouldn’t the proper procedure be that the man who is about to run the country attend two of the most important meetings to take place this year?


No mention of New Labour until a good 15 minutes into the speech. Why’s that then?


Interesting point that people he has had a disagreement with in the past have gone up to him and said “let’s get over it”. Ahhh, that’s nice, not after a job by any chance?


Great point from Ben Brogan about the Labour party being behind the Conservatives in the polls. Ben asked is a Bill on constitutional reform the way to address this?


At the beginning of the speech he talked about listening to people, by the end, the true Gordon came through as he talked about his visits around the country.


Listening to people suddenly became, “I will be talking to doctors, talking to nurses, talking to teachers.” What happened to listening?


Summary: obviously out to bore us all into submission.

Blogs are like buses, it would appear. You wait for ages and then two arrive at once.... If Brown is seeing a 'bounce' in his polls, let's hope that it's no more real than a stockmarket 'dead cat bounce'. Frankly I dread the prospect of this man leading the country. Maybe there's a chance I'm being unfair to him. Maybe we are all so used to his 'bank manager' style and image that we can't see the real Gordy inside. Maybe we are all in for a treat when the grub goes through a period of metamorphosis and becomes the butterfly. No doubt that's what his spinners would have us all believe. Unfortunately I'm more inclined to believe what I've seen in the last ten years and the impressions gained during that period. Brown is clearly someone who needs to micro-manage the minutiae of his entire domain. How does that fit with the role of Prime Minister? He is trying to distance himself from spin, but his budgets have been a lesson in how to hide the real facts behind reams and reams of small print. No, sorry Mr Brown, you are what you are, and you ain't gonna change. Trust him? You have to be joking.

As long as the bus is the number 10 to Downing Street, why worry, hop on board and enjoy the ride. Just been reading a snipet from Blairs biographer about what the teaching staff thought about him. I quote "he was a complete pain in the backside and they were glad to see the back of him" Took the words right out of my mouth. I'm now searching for clues about Gordon.See if I can gain any foresight.

Brown is clearly letting Blair sign the EU deal in violation of his pledge to hold a referendum, then he'll shrug and say "well, it's been signed, it would be wrong not to ratify, even if I don't really agree"
