Re: Gordon Brown's limpness, apologise for telling the truth!!!
There's a precedent in law which stipulates you must provide substance to questioning and answering, something which politicians are adverse to and to which they excell in avoiding. The art of waffling on but never addressing the intial question is something particularly abhorrent with politicians, but something the labour party specializes in (Harriet Harman being a prime example).
Yes, Gordon Brown was being human in making a private remark as we all do in such circumstances, but his remark about bigotry when a constituent raised the issue of immigration is as tiresomely predictable when labour screams sexist or misogyny whenever men raise any legitimate concerns.
Also, many of Brown's claims to the woman were later refuted (by several news sources), one being where he said the numbers of emigrating UK citizens were matched by those immigrants entering the country. Wrong! Just over 700,000 people UK citizens moved to work in europe, whilst in the same period almost a million more (officially) entered the UK (1,700,000). That's not including the many hundreds of thousands which are unofficial! Of course unchecked immigration has been the centrepiece in labour's agenda to diluting the essence of traditional Britishness.
