as david cameron gave the speech of his life during the tory party conference about this time last year to give the tory party a bump in the polls in the uk and indirectly insuring that boris johnson would become mayor of london, gordon brown (aka bashful smurf) gave the speech of his life tuesday during the labour party confference. somehow he achieved the unachieveable. he temporarily developed a personality. no dithering about. he was full of self-confidence and direction. although tony blair was the big personality during the the ‘cool brittania’ phase. hopefully the british remember that as chancellor of the exchequer, gordon brown steered the uk through a highly successful 10 year plus run of the economy. you can watch highlights on the bbc.
