Just one more post....(lettergate)
I've had a perusal around the blogosphere and as expected the main topic today is Gordon's sloppy letter and the backlash.
Now, I am well aware that I'm known as an occasional 'tin foil hat' wearer. Some of my views can be wildly different from others and I like to throw in a curve ball to the debate now and again. And today is no different.
The differing opinions of the 'letter-gate' incident range from the 'he's disabled, you know. It's not his fault' to the 'he's a hopless twat and ot should have been checked first'. All fairly valid points.
But, (pulls on tin foil hat), here is my take on the whole thing.
It was a set up.
Think about it. Do you seriously think that the PM would just send out a letter off the cuff without any of his 'advisors' knowing about it or checking it? He has his own copy, no one copies a 'personal' letter!
An increasingly desperate man at the head of an increasingly desperate government will do anything, absolutely anything, to cling on to power.
I'm pretty sure that he knew the letter would end up in the press. And I'm pretty sure the reaction he was looking for was slightly different than the one he got.
The reaction he was looking for was more along the lines of 'that poor man must be so tired trying to save the world. Look, he has made so many mistakes in his letter. He must be a brave soul to battle on, with his bad eye and that. And it must be from the heart because he wrote this himself and no one checked it before it went out. What a good caring, hard working PM we have. He's got my vote...'
If I am widly wrong, just ask yourself this. Would you put it past the bastards to try it?
Right, now I must go. Ta ta for now!!
