Brown ‘mortified’ by bigot slur against Gillian Duffy

So booms the headline on the BBC News homepage.  Let’s be clear about something, Gordon Brown is not mortified that he had the arrogance and contempt to describe Gillian Duffy as a ‘bigoted woman’.  He is mortified because his public persona has been exposed as the sham we always knew it to be and his true nature and unpleasant personality has been exposed in such unambiguous fashion.

That is now being compounded by his pathetic and deceitful attempts to suggest he hadn’t understood Gillian Duffy’s comments properly, thus trying to excuse his slur against a woman who raised a perfectly reasonable point about immigration and the state of the economy.  His rambling and conditional apology is entirely self serving and frankly an insult to our intelligence.

Maybe the most appropriate response Mrs Duffy could make to Brown would be to turn his own alleged words to Tony Blair back on him and say:

“There is nothing that you could say to me now that I could ever believe.”

How deliciously apt that would be.

    Dear Autonomousmind

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you. My name is Neil and I am Assistant Producer on The Big Questions. In case you don’t know our programme, ‘The Big Questions’ is BBC1’s flagship live ethical debate show presented by Nicky Campbell. It began its second series in December 2008 and is running until summer 2010. Each week, three topics are discussed on the show – these are ethical or moral questions connected to the week’s news headlines. It is broadcast live from a different area of the country every Sunday at 10 am, and gets viewing figures between 1 and 1.5 million.
    Next Sunday (9th May) is whether is whether the current voting system is immoral or whether PR would be a more moral voting system. I notice that you have written on the subject before. I would really like to talk to you about the possibility of taking part in the programme. If you could contact me at your earliest convenience that would be great. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Kind Regards
