Looks like Gordon Brown will have a little trouble duplicating Tony Blair’s electoral success. That was one heck of a short honeymoon for current UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and like here in the US, it’s about the economy. Apparently his finance minister does not share his skill in economic matters, but you would think that Gordon Brown could give the guy a few ideas. It’s odd that Brown has struggled so much as Prime Minister. After all, he made quite a few brilliant moves as Chancellor of the Exchequer. He isn’t Tony Blair, and that’s what the good citizens of the UK thought that they wanted. Even with all of his years in the Blair orb, it’s not clear that he was the right guy to take Blair’s place in Number 10. Voters are fickle though, even across the pond, and they could change their minds tomorrow.
The numbers– Conservatives – 42, Labour – 29, LibDems – 21
Tories once lost elections on the economy. Will this be the reason Labour loses power again? The leader of the Conservatives, David Cameron, sure hopes so.
