Polly and Gordon are no longer an item

Polly Toynbee has gone right off Gordon. Her latest is scorching. Gordon, vis-a-vis the 42 days "knowingly did what was wrong in an absurd attempt to out-tough the Tories and please a punitive public". To be saved by Anne Widdicombe, UKIP and the DUP was "personally shaming". And - together with the inept attempt to bribe the middle-class with a tax cut - these are "character-destroying catastrophes from which Brown can never recover, because they betray dishonourable and dishonest intent - and that has been rumbled by the voters". So the wedding is off then?
She is right, of course. "Not flash, just Gordon"? I don't think so. "Not flash, and obsessed with short-term gimmicks and inept attempts to outflank the Tories on the right". Blair without the cheesy grin and communication skills. His "moral compass"? Pass the sick bag.
