Letter to the Guardian

A letter in the Guardian from a Mr Aitchison of Hove, East Sussex has this to say

Do I notice an increasing amount of anti-Gordon Brown sentiment in the Guardian's editorial content of late? Whatever his faults, Mr Brown strikes me as a man of integrity - something increasingly rare in UK politics nowadays. While we're at it, does anybody seriously believe any of the other political parties would have avoided the credit crunch - or indeed handled it any better now that it's here?
Stuart Aitchison
Hove, East Sussex
Perhaps Mr Aitchison has had his letter answered by the slightly anti-Gordon Brown Guardian editorial in the same issue when they say "Labours Dilemma: Gordon Brown".

Amongst some of the choice quotes are
The public is calling furiously for a better system. People want an honest parliament. They want leaders who are prepared to act. They loathe the old system, and many of the people who are part of it.
The truth is that there is no vision from him, no plan, no argument for the future and no support. The public see it. His party sees it. The cabinet must see it too, although they are not yet bold enough to say so.
and finally
But Mr Brown will never do it. The prime minister was absent from the start of the debate and cautious now he has joined it. His instinct is usually to hesitate, and to establish reviews and commissions. Meanwhile, the chance of a generation is being missed.
Mr Aitchison may now just about have got the idea. Hopefully the rest of the country will get the idea and continue to tell Mr Brown to go on Thursday.

Fitaloon, could I ask you a big favour please? Your post titles are linked to your sources and that makes it difficult for me to link to a specific post. Do hope you understand what I mean, I'm not good at techy stuff. I want to link to your post entitled 'Another little earner for MEPs' but it keeps coming up with the Times instead of this blog.
