Green revolution?

Vote Green tomorrow but beware of getting rid of Gordon today | Jonathan Freedland | Comment is free | The Guardian: "For four senior Labour figures to quit on the eve of a double set of elections – apparently indifferent to the damage this might cause the party's chances – reeks of the sinking ship: now it's every rat for himself."

The election leaflets falling through the letterbox at Herald House are mostly from the Liberals and some Christian party ("Put your X beside the cross"). That is apart from an unctuous letter of apology from Gordon Brown on behalf of the entire parliament. Shouldn't he have at least excluded St Sarah of Willesden? He's trying to dilute the muck by including clean people in his ineffectual and redundant apology. One thing we know for sure, they are all very sorry: that is their permanent situation. They really feel our pain.
