I mean we all know that Gordon Brown is Very Bad At Being Prime Minister, but, somehow, even I thought that even he would have managed to improve a little after his Near Death Experience. Silly me. He's announced a non-public inquiry into the Iraq War, which is worse than having no inquiry at all. Apparently he might change his mind, that must be his Prestbyterian conscience kicking in again. He's screwing up financial regulation to the dismay of the Bank of England. Also, following the NDE, he's created a massively unelected administration, perhaps modelled on the Iranian Guardians, and handed much of his own power to the unelected Mandelson. Shouldn't we be taking to the streets or something? I'm pretty free next week.
