I will not let you down

Gordon Brown's first speech as Labour Leader to the Labour party conference in 2007 ended on a big climax of a promise.

So this is my pledge to the British people:

I will not let you down.

I will stand up for our schools and our hospitals.

I will stand up for British values.

I will stand up for a strong Britain.

And I will always stand up for you.

Today during his speech on the economy even that old soundbite is being re announced.

'I will not let you down.'

Bit late to promise that now..?

The inflatable PM.

Why so ?

He's in charge of the inflatable country with an inflatable economy filled with inflatable people.

He doesn't want to end up saying," I let the country down, I let myself down ... I let you ALL down."

The only thing I have to say is...

The balloon family are in bed, during the night there's a thunder storm and the baby balloon is scared so he goes to his parents room and tries to squeeze in their bed.

It's tiny so he lets some air out of his dad but still can't get in so he lets some air out of his mum but he still can't get in.

Desperate needs, he lets a lot of air out of himself and then fits in.

In the morning his dad is furious.

He says "Son you've let me down, you've let your Mum down, but most of all you've let yourself down".

Surely you're not suggesting that Brown is out of ideas?!

Budgie said...

Brown is stuck with the ideas he grew up with: 1950s, post WW2, socialism. He has learned nothing new and refuses to do so. Consequently his world view keeps clashing with reality. Hence the tantrums. Hence his inability to solve the problems we really have, or even put in place those that could.

Doesn't it all rather depend on who the comment was actually addressed to?

If you consider Peter Mandeslon, Charlie Whelan, and Unite, then he's actually doing rather well at keeping his promise.

Brown hasn't let me down. Since a few days after he became Chancellor it was obvious that he was a nasty, humourless, pig headed, ideologically driven socialist who would lead us to ruin.

He has more than lived up to my expectations.
