Is there anyone mildly competent out there worth voting for???
Yep, comparing Cameron with quite possibly one of the most popular "people" on TV at the moment was genius! Pure genius!

Brilliant,..they made him look like a Movie Star.
No doubt he'll have the Hollywood film producers knocking on his door next.

Its not just that, and I know this is going to sound stupid, but when I talk to people, you know, real people, they tell me how we need a Gene Hunt type person to run "this bloody country", his no nonsense political incorrectness really appeals to people, they hearken back to a world that never really existed.... and Labour have decided to make people think of him when they look at Cameron... brilliant! Yet more proof that Labour are detached from the reality of modern British life....

Yep, quite right. However, I never thought that any of them had a bloody clue to start with.

Look at it like this. The tories lost the last time in no small part to the outrageous levels of corruption that they wantonly displayed.

Having seen this lesson writ large in the polls, would you not have thought that the labour leadership would have informed all its MPs and ministers that should they ever, ever get embroiled in such corruption again that the MPs in question would have their liver ripped out and stamped on?

Furthermore, that both Labour and tories alike would have realised that the expenses were extracting the piss to an extent that the electorate would resent highly?

They have both lost the plot, or more accurately realise that they can do what the hell they like because we will keep on voting them in no matter what.

I forgot about the other lot using Kenny.

Now try this one.

So Mr Angry's true colours have come to light again.
After eventually plucking up enough courage to chat to one of his own supporters in an attempt to reassure her,...the minute she turned her back he started insulting her.
Talk about him being a two faced eejit.
Who is ever going to believe him now?
Seems our Gordon's really dropped himself in it this time.

If that wasn't bad enough,he was later dumb enough to refer to the incident as a disaster.
I presume he meant allowing the real Brown to have his true dodgy character exposed in public again.

I just find it quite funny.

I haven't seen this incident, but I remember how much we hated Blair for being smarmy and more full of spin than a merry go round on overdrive.

Well, now we have a fairly charmless unspun individual and we hate him for that.

For those with a classical education, we are the frogs, neither wanting King Stork or King Log.

It was a bit sad and pathetic to see him groveling with his head in his hands during a radio interview.
He even went to the womans house and spent a whole hour with her as a damage limitation exercise or something of the sort, but I fancy he picked on the wrong one.
Looks like his days are numbered and labour are doomed.
How sad.
Mandleson was full of his usual [email protected] saying how upset Brown was to have hurt the womans feelings.
Only thing he was upset about was how many votes he'd just chucked down the pan.

Can't wait for the good news,...the PM has now left the building.
Just no way will Clegg work with him or under him as PM.

Sooooo.......honest answers...........how many people think this will have a substantial negative impact on the elections or will it be forgotten about in a weeks time?
I suppose it will down to how the media want to react to it and want "us" to react to it.
