Enough already

OK, this is Gordon's speech yesterday analysed by redoubtable political analysis tool 'Wordle'.

Same treatment for Dave's speech later.

He has to keep talking about "Britain" as a sleight-of-hand to distract the public from realising that after the Devolution for which he was the main driving force, this election is now primarily an English election.

Schools n' Hospitals? Both Devolved responsibilities. Any talk about either is about England alone.

Transport? Apart from Transport Safety, any talk about Transport is about England alone.

Dealing with the deficit? The Tories have already said that they will "respect" the current Scottish and Welsh budgets and leave them alone. Or in other words, all the savage cuts they are planning (and which are needed) will fall on England alone.

Meanwhile Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be electing MPs to impose decisions on England that they insist in their own countries are nobody's else business. And what's more, taking blatant bribes in order to do so, (e.g. the DUP over the 42-day internment legislation).

Devolution has wrecked "Britain" and they are terrified of what will happen when people wake up and realise. The only answer is an English Parliament and a federal future and that would put many of them out of a job.

I don't understand the need for Brown to make a speech in the first place. Labour has been in power for 13 years...we KNOW what they're up to and we don't like it.

Brown has said, on more than one occasion, that he will let his record speak for itself. He seems to think that the electorate will judge his record as an endorsement. Fat chance.
