And then we all woke up and sniffed....

Some TMP readers suggested that we have been a tad extreme in our early assessment of Brown's administration - unfairly condemning them without much evidence. Well, we think we have called this one pretty accurately, so of course we will now indulge in a fat gloat.

TMP's concern now is that there are still so many voters willing to put up with this pantomime. Labour's relentless ten years of outrageous gerrymandering by creating a client state, ruthlessly appeasing their heartlands, fixing the Scottish parliamentary fodder, and allowing their "natural" supporters to turn up and sign on - largely unchecked - has worked pretty well for them.

However, there comes a time when the combination of sleaze and incompetence is so inescapable that even the most ardent supporters and apologists have to give up in despair or become completely tarred by the same messy brush. Given that the Conservative Party has made no secret of its intentions to dismantle the no-longer-impartial BBC, watch out for the BBC bigging up the LibDems in an effort to find any friend that might help stave off the prospects of a majority Tory administration.

The interesting times continue. Tony Blair must be wetting himself with glee.
