I don't have any political bias and don't normally comment on politics but the latest gaffe by Gordon Brown just days out from the next election is farcical.
What really gets me is not the blunder in calling the elderly pensioner bigoted but that his damage control campaign has him flip flopping and going and apologising to her in person.
"The Fatal Comment"
A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to their own opinions and prejudices which this old lady clearly is. Why pander to her and make an even greater fool of yourself when you can make a clear stand, go on the offensive and make it a positive. I would much rather see a strong leader back himself and his own comments than a fluffing fumbling weakling any day.
His PR team are thinking like losers already and although they will most likely be out of a job by the end of next week anyway their tactics are making him look like he is running scared - not the best days out from the election.
