It's a pity that whoever thought of leaving the microphone on Mr Brown didn't get sacked from their media company. Some things said off the record are sometimes truthful but should be kept off the record.

What did he say?

He said she was: "a sort of bigoted woman" --because she happened to raise the issue with him of East European immigrants getting easily into Britain and taking good British jobs.

I'm so enjoying following the campaign
because I'm so jealous of how you Brits so wisely get it over and done with unlike us who are knee-deep into the next campaign before the votes are even counted from the last. (90% of our govermental energy goes to getting re-elected and NOT to solving our problems which is why we have so many of them.)

Will Brown recover from that incredible gaffe? Who's going to rack up the most votes?

Brown won't win because he never got in initially by winning an election and becuase he's so utterly uncharismatic and everyone knows a lot of people vote for the nice guy..."Oh he's soooo nice isn't he? Not like that Gordon Brown he's awful"!

My 2c worth.

sighthound: nice to see you here once again,you are a solid veteran palinite,and I doff my cap to you.

Our British Election this time around is quite a tight 3-horse race,and GB's gaffe in Rochdale,Lancashire,hasn't done anything towards improving New Labour's prospects of getting back into power.
Brown's team are trying hard to spin out the gaffe: yesterday they tried to claim that Mr.Brown 'misheard' what Mrs Gillian Duffy was saying.....
Thus,in the midpoint of her conversation she said [about Eastern European immigrants streaming into Britain]: "...and where are they FLOCKING from??...."
--but Brown is alleged to have misheard what she said,and allegedly thought she had said "....and where are they fu**ing FROM??.." --which actually is a lot funnier than the original!--and hence he called her "a sort of bigoted woman" although she is a family pensioner and hardly someone who would tend towards supporting the BNP with her vote.

Further bad news for Brown and Co.:
Today it is reported that of the major British newspapers who previously supported New Labour,the London TIMES is now urging people to vote Conservative; and the left-wing GUARDIAN is urging people to vote LIberal Democrat.

This was written in reference to the Great Depression in the United States but this is what you'll get in the U.K. if you vote for the Tories next week.

I saw on the TV news last night (and it is in the papaers today) that the woman was upset by the fact he called her 'that woman' and not that he called her a bigot.

Make of it what you may.

Maybe she likes being a bigot. Maybe she doesn't even know what the word means? Maybe she is a relative of Brown's and she is upset he didn't remember her name.
