A Level Politics

Improving your grade

With friends like these

gordon-brownThe summer holidays will soon be upon us, and no doubt both students and teachers need a break. But so too does our prime minister – apparently. Labour MP Austin Mitchell, has described Brown as “knackered”, and runs the risk of making bad decisions unless he takes a break. Still, that’s nothing. Another Labour MP, Patricia Hewitt has criticised the “laddish” culture at Number 10, and hence Gordon Brown’s running of it. Oh dear, with friends like these who needs enemies?

Hopefully, from his point of view, Brown will have a good summer. He’ll certainly need it given that we are less than 12 months away from a general election, one that he is widely expected to lose. But how many more Labour MPs will chip away at their leader in the meantime?
