Gordon Brown Goes Down

British PM Gordon Brown finally faced the inevitable and announced his intention to resign:

Gordon Brown has said he is stepping down as Labour Party leader - as his party opens formal talks with the Lib Dems about forming a government.

Mr Brown, prime minister since 2007, said he hoped a successor as Labour leader would be in place by September.

The Lib Dems have been negotiating for days with the Tories - who won the most seats and votes in the UK election.

But the Lib Dems have asked for formal talks with Labour. Mr Brown said it was in the "national interest" to respond.

It's not too hard to see what's going on. The UK is going to be governed by the 'coalition of losers.'

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg is going to back off from his campaign pledge to allow the party with the largest popular mandate - in this case, the Tories - to form a government, and instead will form a coalition with Labour, their ideological soul mates. They'll also bring in fringe parties on the left like the Scottish National Party, Cymru, the Greens and the SDLP to get to a majority.

Because Clegg and Brown weren't able to bond personally, ( to put it mildly) part of the price for that was tossing Brown downstairs, and I'm sure El Gordo received a number of agitated phone calls from Labour kingpins calling for him to resign - or else.

As for the UK, it will simply continue on its socialist death spiral.

Ah, well.

please helps me write more gooder!

Perhaps the British will demand that the "Coalition of the losers" as you call them step aside and that the party with the most votes, in this case, the Conservatives be allowed to form a Government.

"As for the UK it will continue on its socialist death spiral." I wouldn't be so quick to write them off. Perhaps the voters will intervene. After all, the UK, while it does face problems, the porblems it faces are no where near as severe as what America faces.

I'm hoping the UK can pull this off. If they can, there may be some hope for America. Then again, America's problems are far more severe than what the UK faces. British leadership no doubt wakes up every morning grateful that the problems their country faces are not as severe as what America faces!!
