It just gets worse for Brown

Aiming for a post bank holiday relaunch today with a visit to a Lewisham school, Her Majesty's Press were witness to a protester trying to block Gordon Brown's car and a large group of protesting parents outside the school, angry at the Labour council's education policy. The pics in tomorrow's papers should be good.

Meanwhile David Cameron urged the nation to vote on 4th June anyway they liked so long as it was a vote against Gordon Brown. "They cannot go on forever. Change in our country will come. And we can make that glorious day of change arrive all the sooner, if on June 4 you give this weak, useless and spineless government a message it won't forget". Thus rather neatly sidestepping what a vote for Cameron's MEPs on 4th June would actually be for.

And Brown's reputation as a petulant bully was confirmed when Blears contrived to look demure and frightened as she was escorted into today's cabinet meeting by fraudster James Purnell and contrite and bollocked as Andy Burnham held her hand on the way out. Coupled with leaked comments about Brown's 'hairdryer treatment' of Iain Dale's diminutive chipmunk, I score it Blears 2 Brown 0.

The Queen's Broadcaster announced this speech this morning under the headline (possible misquote): Brown attempts to regain the initiative with education speech.

The change of stance is noticeable.
