I have just watched Gordon Brown's interview with Gary Gibbon on Channel 4 News with incredulity.
He claimed that he never done personal criticism of opponents. I audibly gasped.
Gordon Brown has built his career and climbed the greasy pole by using smear and innuendo against his opponents. It might not have been him directly but his accolytes have been at it for years, nay decades.
The Smeargate scandal exposed the dark heart of Brown's operation and although they (eventually) got rid of Damian McBride he is just a symptom of the problem. The problem is Brown himself.
I asked just after Smeargate whether Gordon Brown could even claim to legitimately be Prime Minister any more because others were starting to come out of the woodwork accusing Brown's henchman of having smeared them. I bet Stephen Byers, Alan Milburn, Frank Field and countless others would be able to explain how Brown's operations really work.
To hear him try to claim to be holier than thou in this way is abdolutely sickening.
