Gordon calls Blog BS5
Gordon just called me up to ask what I made of his speech this afternoon.
I told him I thought his (quite pretty) wife kicking it off was a pleasantly surprising move. I also told him that the whole che-bang was window dressing anyhow. 'Yeah, Gordon', I said, ' you may have put a leadership bid on hold , at least until the Glenrothes By-election, and you will probably be in power until the election anyway, but your Government will get such a monumental kicking at that point anyway, that you might as well plan for the speaking circuit now'.
Gordon seems decent enough to me but the poor chap just heads a Government that has been in too long and is old, tired, and out of steam.
Gordon thanked me for my analysis and then asked me just how the hell I got Dita Von T to subscribe to BlogBS5. Ahh, Gordon, some things a man must keep to himself.
