It may be a less flashy era than that of , which worked to overturn the hostile elements of anti- , but if Mr Brown is prepared to knuckle down and do a good job, there may be no need for spin, the refuge of the directionless. Flashiness may be remembered fondly by the masses, but Britons may not want presidential PMs. As the Review noted:

We hope Gordon Brown will want to mark a change of regime by insisting on a more straightforward approach from government spokesmen and ministers. and public alike would welcome a truce in what has become a damaging crossfire of misinformation: selective leaking and contradictory briefings by factions inside the party in power, and highly polished innuendo and personal sniping, rather than legitimate, fact-based criticism, by the media.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
