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.

The "great and wise" Polly Toynbee?

More like "grating whines" methinks...

I note hoe much the media have been trying to find ways that Gordon Brown and/or Labour can come back from the dead, so to speak.

Why? Who cares? Most of us just want rid of them and aren't interested in long articles or TV programmes about saving their skins.

Garbage belongs in the bin, not in power!

The one and only reason Brown backed off an election last year, was because Salmond was going to stand against him. NL might well have scraped through, but not with Gordy

It is a dilemma in faith, that god chooses the darkest hour in which to reveal the light of understandings.

the great deciver always fails when he is so far down the road of his own powers , that he is lost.

Now hold on a minute your Grace your not showing great religious sensitivity.

Polly is leader of her own religion, judging by the fact they want it taught in RE lessons.

She believes in reason - which is why she's now facing 180 degr from where she was a year ago.

I fear, Your Grace, that the Good Lord Himself might feel that resurrecting Gorgon Brownshirt's political career was beyond Him.

Doesn't it depress you that the electorate seem to judge the whole matter more on less on how they feel about Brown - I mean, he may be dour, but a wise-cracking smarm-monkey may, just possibly, not be the best indicator of political competence.

In a democracy, politicians will rise no higher than the electoral source.
