Gordon the Beijing Duck

So Blair is stuffed. I presume Brown has been running around Europe telling people not to have anything to do with the man in his final act of revenge for the Granita Betrayal. In spite of his public support, a Blair presidency would be a Brown nightmare. Anyway, Blair's saving of Brown last June has turned out to be pointless. Brown couldn't or wouldn't deliver on his side of the bargain, the presidential cap with flames and eagles. More to the point, one reason for Mandelson's June support of Brown - the Blair elevation - has gone. What with that and the dismal performance of our economy, Brown is no longer a lame duck, he is ready to be eaten with spring onions, cucumber, Hoisin sauce and pancakes.

  1. He's certainly had a long and slow roasting.

    BTW have Chinese restaurants gone down the Beijing road? Despite being, well, Chinese they were the last Peking hold-outs.

  2. Still 'Peking' duck at my local; and 'Bombay' at the Indian.

    I can't even begin to find a metaphor to describe Gordon's current predicament. Possibly it is like a very bad amateur pantomime production, but I can't think of which panto.

    And I absolutely loathe panto.

  3. Its all mesmerizing funny to watch, to covert the job so much to find yourself so humiliated in it, he will be destroyed when he leaves office and the eton boys take over, the irony, the dish really served stone cold.

  4. Watching the dying embers of Tone's Jerusalem, especially the defence operatives Paxo pounding, mewing pitifully and asking for mercy, reminds of that footage of the American Embassy scramble, circa last day in Vietnam. Undignified, unholy and underway.
