how can gordon brown fix bigotgate

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

barack obama made a similar gaffe in 2008 when he made an off handed remark about americans in flyover country. the only difference is that the british election is condensed into a 6 week period so how can gordon brown turn this whole thing around?

well, any minute now, brown, cameron and clegg will have their final debate. he could take this moment to confront the issue. or not.

a blog about whatever recommends that he doesn’t. he made his apology directly to the grandma. and he should push cameron or clegg to make their own gaffe. he should focus on beating up on cameron and on clegg. and since now he has nothing to lose brown should relax and play to his strengths which his intelligence and command of policy. but we’ll see how that goes.

over the next days, brown should revert back to the old fashioned way of campagining. he should hold a press conference every day and set the agenda. he should remind people about the 90s and how even now, despite the recession, that many brits are better off than the previously were.

this of course is not an endorsement of the labour party. omg no. it would be good if the labour voters who leave brown go for cameron, but it is possible that they will chose clegg, which would mean brown would still end up as prime minister. but if the conservatives can move past 40% all will be well in the uk.
