Have just read an article in the Mail about how Gordon Brown may not have been completely truthful about the allegations of bullying.
Since the allegations came out last week we’ve had the likes of Peter Mandelson and John Prescott defending Gordon Brown and saying they are not true / Coulson is worse / it’s a Tory plot. Fair enough as you would expect them to defend their boss – although I can’t think of 2 worse people to defend me on bullying allegations if I’m honest.
I do find it amusing that depending on which side of the political fence you sit Gordon Brown is a bully or passionate about his job. However I do find it hypocritical that the likes of John Prescott can see Gordon Brown as “passionate” yet anyone on the other side as a bully. But you know my views on John Prescott!
The “proof” of the allegations seems to come from a good source – Gordon Brown’s senior foreign policy adviser, Dr Stewart Wood (circled in the picture) during an interview with journalist Suzie Mackenzie. The interview can be read and heard here.
KGM: Or shoved them?
GB: No, I don’t do these sorts of things.
If Gordon Brown has lied on this, then what else has he lied on? McBride / Draper? The cuts Labour plan on making after the election? Is he and Labour (Mandelson, Prescott etc) prepared to lie just to get re-elected?
Maybe we should be taking a Long Hard Look At Labour.
