The Game is Up

The expression on the faces of Alistair Darling and Gordon Brown on television today spoke volumes. Peter Mandleson put a brave face on it but without doubt the game is up for Labour. With the growing number of discredited cabinet Ministers (not to mention Secretaries of State) making the headlines every day there is no shadow of a doubt that Labour is drawing its last breath. Its popularity ratings in one poll are down to 18%,
on a par with the Liberal Democrats whose spokesmen Nick Clegg and Vince Cable show political astuteness, financial prudence and stature and command increasing respect from public and pundits alike.
The best solution is to sweep the decks clean, dissolve parliament and call an election. The grass-roots public must decide the fate of the constitution, not the overweening politicians.
