Gordon Brown will go down in history as the most incompetent and inept Prime Minister of all time. A man who has brought the once mighty United Kingdom to the brink of bankruptcy.
With the country already up to its eyes in debt, Brown’s solution to the economic crisis he created is to borrow even more money in a desperate attempt to bribe voters ahead of next year’s General Election.
The only sane voice on the Labour benches is Frank Field. Tony Blair made him Minister for Welfare Reform in 1997 but he resigned a year later after reported clashes with Gordon Brown at the Treasury. Mr Field is a respectable and trustworthy Member of Parliament for whom the term “Honourable” is most apt.

If Labour MPs have just one ounce of decency left, they will get their snouts out of the public trough and put the interests of the country first. They must ditch Gordon Brown immediately and elect Frank Field as Leader. It won’t save them from an electoral wipeout, but it will at least mean that the brakes can be applied at the Treasury before the damage Brown has caused becomes irreversible.
The next Conservative government will have to clear up Labour’s mess, as usual, but having Frank Field at No 10 for the intervening twelve months would certainly help to ensure that we have a less damaging economic policy for Labour’s final year in office.
