The Mail on Sunday is full to bursting today with new revelations about McFuckwit - this extract is just priceless. The rest of it is pretty good too and really is worth a read for some inside stories we already suspected but are now there for all to see in glorious black and white.
Peter Watt was at the head of the Labour Party machine during one of the most tumultuous periods in recent political history – the transfer of power from Tony Blair to Gordon Brown.
As General Secretary of the party between 2005 and 2007, he was its most senior member and at the heart of Government. He was a key player in the notorious 'Election that never was', the poll Brown ‘bottled’ at the 11th hour.
Here he gives an extraordinary no-holds-barred account of the fiasco from which Brown’s reputation has never recovered – the first such account from a party insider.
It details the indecision, chaos and seething resentment at the heart of Brown’s administration, and reveals how even the Prime Minister’s closest aides disliked him.......
Like many of my colleagues, I had had deep misgivings about Gordon becoming Prime Minister. He lacked leadership skills and seemed to struggle to relate to other people. Often he was downright rude.
