A Humiliating Victory

The SDLP's Mark Durkan got it right: for Gordon Brown yesterday's vote on the 42 days was a "humiliating victory". Yes, he won the vote, very narrowly, and probably saved his bacon for the moment. I dare say he thinks he is a tactical genius, outflanking the Tories on the right. He certainly looked pleased with himself, striding out of Downing Street grinning all over his face. But to be saved by Peter Robinson (at a price) and Anne Widdicombe. How grubbier can it get? If Gordon Brown seriously imagines this will enhance his reputation or that of the government then he is a bloody fool.

Just heard the news that David Davis has resigned. I bet Gordon Brown is having a good old chuckle (first time in months I'm sure). I've suspected that Davis hates Cameron almost as much as (Cherie) Blair hates Brown for ages. Well, wouldn't you if you were going to be party leader, then a smug old etonian makes a *better* speech than you and bang goes your chances of ever being PM......
