Gordon Brown really is performing the mother of all.
He is back-pedalling on NHS and Education reforms. I suppose it is a cheaper way of destroying things.
Tony Blair brought in the wrecking balls and knocked down many good structures. He did intend to replace them with dysfunctional, ugly, fragile, expensive but useless edifices - much like modern "developers" do in the real world - but he did not have time. Gordon just hates spending the money so is just going to leave the rubble there and force us to live amongst the shattered remains like some besieged Stalingrad.
Gordon has done some good things in public vs. the showman Blair. But behind the scenes he still manages to work his evil Communist ways.
