Daily Mirror Brown Crushes Clegg And Cameron

David Cameron was left floundering last night as Gordon Brown repeatedly outsmarted him during Britain’s first Prime Ministerial TV debate.

So begins an article in the Mirror under the banner headline Brown Crushes Clegg and Cameron, evidently the Mirror watched a different Leaders Debate to the one watched by the rest of the populace who are in touch with the real world.

Lord Mandelson said Nick Clegg had won on style, Gordon Brown on substance and David Cameron was “painfully squeezed” in the middle.

He added: “People are seeing and hearing Nick Clegg for the first time … I accept he was high on style and quite effective. But on the other side of David Cameron was Gordon Brown. He won the argument.”

It’s difficult to the article seriously because it makes about as much sense as Labour do, and unsurprisingly there is no author listed for this piece of blatant Labour propagada.

Where it really falls down is in the use of cut and paste and lack of attention to detail:

Expenses
Gordon Brown felled David Cameron over the Tory’s refusal to clean up the House of Lords.

The PM landed his biggest punch by saying: “David, please, no more hereditary peers.”

He was “shocked and saddened” by the MPs’ expenses scandal, having been brought up to believe in “honesty, fairness and responsibility”.

Mr Clegg said neither Tories or Labour had backed his moves to clean up party funding when they were first introduced in Parliament.

And he disagreed with Mr Brown on the small print over his plans for voting reform.

What bothers me is I hear the words but it’s not what you say, it’s what you do,” he said in one of his stronger lines.

Perhaps a bit of proof reading before clicking the publish button would have helped.

  1. I have remarked in previous posts, David Cameron has to become less gentlemanly and more aggressive. He doesnt
    cut the mustard, as a strong leader unless he become more point specific, he is too soft.

    This TV negative for Cameron is disasterous. People want a strong leader not a softee …. Because there are very negative social/political movements, including the Greens etc
    in Europe that are trying to get Britain to go their way.

    Cameron must accept this. And offer alternatives to stop this takeover of national ideology. The climate change
    debacle is scandulous. That’s a start. People know this.

    Up to you lot to sort it out, but remember Cameron is just a figure head of political ideology. He appears a nice guy.
    Brown is fighting to retain his political parties agenda and past agenda, he has to fight now to retain it or lose credibility for not only former labor ideology and political
    driven motives, but the whole socialist EU combined and connected political ideology.

    It’s gone terribly wrong, and the Climate change debacle
    and submissions have not worked, as God would have
    agreed with.

  2. Been away for a while folks, but here’s my attempt to crush Brown and Mandelson…

    even if you don’t enjoy the vid, the music’s quite stirring.

  3. Very good sighthound. Has anyone seen the Cameron on
    racism. I’m sure it is not him speaking, and his voice dubbed, if so I take it back that he appears tooo gentlemanly.

    Nice sihjt hound, a greyhound with pricky up ears. I have whippets you see.

  4. She’s a cross breed lurcher.
    Rescued her from pup, best fifty quid I ever spent.

  5. Well she has greyhound in her I can see that, they are lovely
    dogs, mind you my two are Aust.Champs and we have to be careful we don’t let them loose in unfenced areas. They travel quick, eh? Mine chased the neighbours cat up a tree once
    too.
