There, I've said it.
Politics shouldn't be about personal abuse and I don't like name calling (although I have stooped to this in the past), but Brown has shown himself to be undeserving of anything better.
Brown spent ten years hiding in the shadow of Tony Blair (remember him?) whenever there was a tough decision or bad news to deal with. It was just about forgivable when he was Chancellor. Now that he is PM there can be no excuse for hiding from the tough stuff.
The release of al-Megrahi has been a national embarrassment and has done lasting damage to our relationship with the USA. While I am well aware that this was done by a devolved government Brown has commented on everything from Big Brother to the cricket results. How he can choose to remain silent over this issue is beyond comprehension.
I understand Brown's dilemma, any comment he makes with either annoy the USA or Libya and damage our relationship with one. Even putting the obvious moral case to one side I know which country I would prefer to stay friends with.
