How can anyone with an ounce of responsibility vote for this cowardly, twisted, bloody-handed, treasonous piece of ordure?
We do not need to call in the psychiatrists. Hitherto, Gordon Brown's behaviour has seemed incomprehensible, but the answer is now clear. The indecisiveness, the self-pity, the chronic nervous strain, the constant ill-temper, the barely-suppressed violence: all is explained, on the assumption that the Prime Minister still has the residue of a conscience, and that his personality is crumbling under the stress of telling all those lies. This does not mean that he should be forgiven. Lying to Parliament used to be regarded as just about the gravest offence that a politician could commit. But there is a worse one: lying to or about the armed forces.As a result of Mr Brown's malfeasance – abetted by Mr Blair's cowardice – men have died who should have lived: men have been crippled who could have escaped with minor injuries.
