This week, we once again saw the Prime Minister put party before country. The Queen’s Speech had one objective; save the Labour Party from electoral defeat. Gordon Brown had nothing to offer the country except a series of half-measures aimed at partisan point-scoring, which even Cabinet Ministers admitted was about playing politics not improving people’s lives.
What a shameful act by this failing government, which is out of steam, out of ideas, and hopefully soon, will be out of office. We don’t need more of this desperate clinging to power; we need a general election.
