Guido Fawkes has a long running series of posts about Gordon Brown’s unnerving ability to jinx the things he supports. From football teams to small businesses a Gordon Brown indorsement is like the black spot from Treasure Island.
Tony Blair must have held his head in his hand when he heard Gordon lavish praise on him, and rightly so. With regard to the presidency of the European Council Tony has gone from “front runner” to “also ran” in less than 24 hours.
Then again, maybe that was Gordon’s plan!
