Has anyone been following the Gordon Brown 'wish I had either shut my big mouth or switched off the microphone' issue? What a gigantic boo-boo.
It reminds me of Bob Hawke who called a pensioner a 'silly old bugger' but at least he had the balls to say it to his face, although I wonder what Hawke would say now the boots on the other foot?
What would Brown have done if the woman didn't accept his apology? (I certainly wouldn't)
Was the police guard outside her home to keep the press out or keep her in and from making any more damning comments?
I think that Labor (and Brown) have had their day
