I have voted Labour all my life and will be doing so again next week, but I do not think that Gordon Brown is the right person to lead the Labour Party or be Prime Minister.
Tony Blair was a far better Prime Minister whether people liked him or not.
Gordon Brown was fine as Chancellor but we need a more charismatic figure to lead Labour from the front, because he has to represent this Country on his travels abroad as well.
Question Author
Really surprised there have been any votes for a con-lab coalition.

Current YouGov Poll: CON 34%(nc), LAB 27%(nc), LDEM 28%(-3)

Spare Ed
Heading for a Hung Parliament Ed, but we need Electoral reform and a new direction in Politics as us the Voters are rather tired of the same old 2 main Party system. More choice for the People really.
Question Author
Agreed, it certainly seems like the general populace is bored to death with the current kind of politics...

Do you think we could be seeing the death of the Labour party, and maybe a resurgence of the Liberal Party for the long term?
I'm amazed that people seem to think a Lib/Cons coalition is possible.

Maybe I'll be proved wrong but I can't see much thay have in common.

Certainly wouldn't please the conservative Euroskeptics
It would certainly be something to see, the Tories in Government, the Lib-Dems sitting opposite in opposition and Labour in the vacant Lib-Dems seats.

Could it be possible?
well if the AB poll is refelected across the nation then it'll be a tory land slide!
"Gordon Brown was fine as Chancellor "

tell me i didnt read that ! you cannot be serious can you.

He has virtually single handedly ruined this country and its economy.

Care to look back and see how many billions were in the coffers when he took over as chancellor and then squandered, against all advice he sold our gold reserves when gold was at virtually the lowest price in recent history, nned i go on.

Who was it as chancellor vetoed virtually all regulations being imposed that would have prevented the investment banks from losing so much money.

You would be better off doing stand up comedy

Brown is labour , labour only ever has one policy, spend and tax
Sorry redman41. Your comment about Brown being a fine chancellor made me smile. He sold the countries gold reserves when it was at a very low price thereby losing billions when the price rose. Did he also not 'raid' pensions?

Oops sorry Baz stealing your thunder there.
TTG - do you know how much Gordon Brown's early sale of Gold reserves cost every taxpayer?


You really should do the maths before believing what you read in the papers
bazwillrun and TTG !
Put forward the name of your Hero who will save us all from a terrible fate if life is so bad under a Labour Government.
Is it the Editor of the Daily Mail or David Cameron, or both ?
What a pair of Bigots
JTP - it was sold at around £270 per ounce - and gold is currently selling for £1100 an ounce.

He sold 395 tonnes (around two thirds of our stock).

Where are you getting your £8 per tax payer from?
It depends on when you think it should have been sold

This was over 10 years ago in 1999

All that Gold still just amounted to $3.5 billion about £2 billion

This amounts to 1% of UK national debt

Yet people still run around with this idea that somehow we're in the mess because Gordon Brown sold all our gold at a bad price
Browns blunder cost £2billion, which is a good £1.4 billion short of the record, held by Ken Clarke, in whom we may be again about to trust our finances. He managed to lose us £3.4 billion on Black Wednesday...

// In 1997 the UK Treasury estimated the cost of Black Wednesday at £3.4 billion, with the actual cost being £3.3 billion which was revealed in 2005 under the Freedom of Information Act (FoI)[1].
The trading losses in August and September were estimated at £800m, but the main loss to taxpayers arose because the devaluation could have made them a profit. The papers show that if the government had maintained $24bn foreign currency reserves and the pound had fallen by the same amount, the UK would have made a £2.4bn profit on sterling's devaluation.[2] Newspapers also revealed that the Treasury spent £27bn of reserves in propping up the pound. //
Which indicates none of them know what the heck they are doing. Except enjoying the power/kudos.
bazwillrun, when you say he sold the gold 'against all advice' - could it be that most of this advice came well after the sale? I don't recall much of it when he did it. Perhaps if you have a link to somewhere you made a personal protest at the time...

Gromit, wasn't it Lamont rather than Clarke at the time of Black Wednesday? I think the actual ill-timed entry to the ERM was the work of John Major when chancellor.
Whatever the election result, it won't please everyone. I wish those who say they hate the Conservatives would better explain their reasons. 'Maggie' has been blamed for so many things, but what else should she have done with the mess she inherited from the previous Labour administration? Seems we may now have to go through that whole wretched process again - once more of Labour's making.
She could have avoided her Monetarist mantra that caused the devastation of our industry and replaced it with the easily movable elsewhere service industry.

As for mess of Labour's making, I assume you mean mess of the bankers' making. Labour has achieved enough own goals without blaming the economy on them as well.
I think we need a change Labour needs to go.
