The choice by the people of the US for hope, change and a President who will make a difference marks the end of Bush and Brown and their discredited and bankrupt administrations. Their harmful and dangerous military adventurism, their economic illiteracy, their placing of their own partisan interests above those of the nation have all had their time. The US electors have pissed on Bush, and UK electors will piss on Brown as soon as they are given the chance.
Brown will still go into history's dustbin as Britain's worst PM ever. Not Mandelson nor Campbell or any of the old team will change that; he is useless, unfitted for high office, lacking the intellect, the nous and the wit to head an effective government. And he will soon be history.
So let us envy for the moment the Cousins and await with eager anticipation our own chance to throw out the rubbish.
