    But it isn't honesty. He was all nice to her then behind her back, he slags the woman off. It's no different to me smiling at you going "Your really good at this" then retreating to my office and slagging you off to another colleague.

    Of more concern is what if he got in the car and discussed something of strict confidentiality with a mic still attached to him!

    yep. but brown just has to chalk it down to experience. he can't complain about it, except give the idiots who thought it was a good idea for him to go out and meet ordinary people a rollicking.

    he's fighting this election knowing he won't be allowed to stick around whatever the result. So what the hell...it's not as if they had a chance of winning - and if the likes of balls and the millibands are consigned to years in the political wilderness then it isn't gordon's problem, he'll get a job 'saving the world' somewhere and will be probably be less hated than blair and cameron in this country. so it's not all bad news.

    Some would argue he's incapable of even doing the former...

    He now has to live with the consequences yes, but it doesn't mean Sky, or any other press company should be allowed to do these things. Freedom of the press should not be a license to destroy peoples work and personal lives. Might as well give them guns too...

    I've just watched the BBC 1 o'clock news and irrespective of your political allegiences I think he's shot himself in the foot with this one. As well as the fact that she started heckling GB on the economy, Nick Robinson heard the exchange and claims she made no racist comments. He then describes the meeting as a disaster before calling the woman a bigot. She said that she was still going to vote Labour but then having heard what he had said she now claims she won't be voting at all and doesn't care if he is reelected or not.

    I would have laughed as hard watching the bulletin no matter who did it but not only was it a party leader, it was the PM!

    We've got it on the office plasma behind me..first I knew of it was the NM howling with laughter..heh.

    Don't like brown, but then i don't like any of them overmuch. All politicians are, at heart, bent. In it for the cash and the perks, not for the country. Wouldn't give a broken Jetdirect for any of 'em.

    <insert maniacal laughter at his stupidity>

    If he was honest about how he felt people would have respect for him. The fact that he did it behind her back and then made a half hearted apology, not because he was sorry but because he felt it might be better for his campaign, just goes to show that he does not have the dangly bits to lead the country.

    i think you need to change your sig now, to

    'this man will be your future leader'. it has to be game over for labour now. especially if more life long labour voters think better of bothering to vote.

    Apparently She said:
    "you can't say anything about immigrants, all these Eastern Europeans, where are they coming from?"
    I'm going to hazard a guess at Eastern Europe ????
    Not only is she a Bigot, she's a thick Bigot too.

    And the media prove once again they are making the news, not reporting it. I still don't like Brown, but this is a non story.
