Polly Toynbee: Gordon Brown cannot be resurrected
The great and wise Polly Toynbee of the erudite and infallible Guardian declares again and again that Gordon Brown is politically dead, and there can be no resurrection. According to 53 per cent of voters, a new leader would not make any difference to Labour's fortunes.
When one considers this time last year, on the eve of the party conference season, Gordon Brown was riding high and David Cameron was under severe pressure to make the speech of his life, it is a curious reversal of fortunes. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.
Cranmer shall be enjoying his Burgundy this evening.
