Dangerous Gordon Brown, one of the UK’s discredited former Prime Ministers, is back. He has produced a new report full of advice for Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.
Brown suggestions include:
- Scotland should be allowed to borrow more money
- A council should be established to bring together regional political leaders. (Regional leaders were an EU suggestion years ago – rejected by the voters.)
- Empowering digital industries
- Getting rid of the House of Lords. And then replacing it with another second chamber called the ‘Assembly of the Nations and Regions’.
Brown is one of the scariest of our former politicians. Who the devil invited him back into public life I cannot imagine. I cannot think of anything Brown did which made Britain greater. But I can think of a lot of things he did which buggered up British life. (Flogging all Britain’s gold at a rock bottom price was particularly moronic.)
Here is a section from my book Gordon is a Moron in which I explain how Brown’s obsession with ‘targets’ helped remove humanity from public life and in particular to bugger up the health service.
