COMMENT: Gordon Brown: My (Small) Part in his Downfall

first_imgby James Wright.No, I’m not behind the Northern Rock crisis. No, I’m not the cause of current global economic uncertainty. And no, despite the receding hairline, I’m not Peter Hain. But here, for the first time, I outline my part in Gordon Brown’s downfall.When Gordon Brown became Prime Minister after ten long years of Tony Blair, the political mood of the country changed palpably. Tony Blair, the Arch-Dissembler, had been replaced by the dependable son of a preacher-man, a man of principle and integrity.Suddenly and surprisingly, all our fears about Gordon, the dour Scottish tax-grabber, becoming Prime Minister disappeared – it turned out he was a ‘pretty straight kind of guy’ whose sobriety and purposefulness contrasted greatly and favourably with the deceitfulness of his predecessor and the flippancy of his potential successor as Prime Minister in the Conservative Party.Indeed, ‘Super-Gordon’ not only survived biblical floods, plagues and terrorist attacks, the first crucial tests of his premiership, but his statesman-like responses to these crises ensured that he actually prospered by them, at least in terms of the opinion polls.It was during this time that I received a telephone call from a pollster (working on behalf of YouGov) who asked me in dulcet tones about my voting intentions in the event of a snap-election being called in October. I paused.Quietly but unhesitatingly I said that I would be voting for Gordon Brown. I was then asked a series of questions about Gordon Brown’s characteristics. At this stage he was neither Stalin nor Mr. Bean but a solid, if underwhelming, House of Commons performer: a ‘conviction politician’ and, of course, statesman-like. And, as I recall, I said as much.I can only plead guilty on the grounds of temporary insanity; I was soon cured after George Osbourne proposed to raise the threshold for inheritance tax (at last – a tax cut!) and David Cameron allegedly made the ‘speech of his life’ but, then again, not really because of anything the Conservatives did.It was only after the Conservative Party Conference that I realised I had been deceived, or rather allowed myself to be deceived, as the real Gordon Brown emerged – a timid, over-cautious man, who called off, as Cameron himself obligingly pointed out, an election that he was almost certainly going to win.At that moment, for me – a disillusioned Tory enamoured of Brown’s professed love of Britain and Britishness, and who had been delighted by the pictures of Margaret Thatcher’s return to Downing Street for tea, at the invitation of the Prime Minister – Gordon Brown’s political career started to make sense. He was not the antidote to Tony Blair at all. Tony Blair had always been portrayed (rightly, in my view) as a man of no principle. Gordon Brown, on the other hand, had principles and although I didn’t necessarily like them, at least he had some. Or so I used to think.But just as Blair fluffed nearly all of his legacy-defining tests so too will Gordon Brown (and on Europe, he already has). His Blairite rhetoric about the constant ‘need for change’ and the importance of making ‘hard choices’ is in the end no substitute for principled, resolute action.Furthermore, I came to realise – albeit belatedly – that Brown lacks political courage; if he didn’t he would have been Prime Minister years ago. Brown, it is worth restating, was as much the architect of the vacuous New Labour Project as Tony Blair: it was merely convenient for Blair the moderniser and Brown the king-in-waiting, to portray the latter as a ‘real’ Labour man in order to carry with them both the ‘awkward squad’ in the parliamentary party. I had misinterpreted Brown’s remarkable silence over the issues which were most dear to Blair’s heart as conscientious objection. Of course, I was wrong – it was quite literally a party trick. This isn’t to say that Blair and Brown were happy bedfellows, but their differences were – and are – more personal than political.The current Prime Minister’s lack of principles and the reasons for the aimlessness and drift of the government at the moment (themselves causally and mutually linked) should really have been obvious to me and the rest of the country during his time at the Treasury.Then, in the New Year, still coming to terms with Brown’s great deception, I was called again by the same polling organisation and asked about my voting intentions, this time for an election which will no doubt come in 2009 or 2010. Holding my nose, I said that I would now be voting Conservative (I am no lover of Dave). My brief – and purely political – affair with Gordon Brown was over.On its own, my change of heart is hardly worth mentioning, but I take some comfort from the fact that I am part of a wider trend of reformed sinners and dupes that has emerged against Gordon Brown in recent weeks. The opinion poll which I participated in gave the Conservatives a lead of several points over Labour. If repeated in a general election, Labour would, according to all opinion polls at the moment, almost certainly lose power outright.And, inasmuch as all votes count (though some more than others in Britain), that would be no small part for me to play in the ultimate downfall of Gordon Brown. Not least since I could never contemplate voting for him again, now that I – and we all – know the truth. James Wright is a History student from Christ Church.last_img read more

Watercress

first_imgNational Watercress Week (11-17 May) starts on Sunday, on which day the 6th Annual Watercress Festival will be held in Alresford, Hampshire. It is 200 years since William Bradbury opened the first British watercress farm in Kent.Watercress is one of the often-mentioned super foods, being high in iron, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin A and calcium. It is grown in spring water, rich in minerals, particularly in Hampshire and Dorset. It has a peppery flavour which goes very well with garlic, chilli or ginger, as well as fish, chicken and cheese. It can be made into a pesto to be brushed over focaccia.When used in baking, watercress adds flavour and colour. Use it in quiches with salmon or chicken, in a tart with spinach and feta cheese or in pies. It can be used in place of spinach in many recipes and goes well with butternut squash and lentils in a vegetarian filo strudel or pasty. Add it to a bread mix with cooked onions to make rolls. Chopped watercress can be added very successfully to cheese scones or cornbreads as well as savoury muffins to serve with soup.* Fiona Burrell, co-author of Leiths Baking Bible, from the world-famous Leiths School of Food and Winelast_img read more

News story: Aviation minister meets airlines and allergy sufferers to improve flying for those with nut allergies

first_img Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Some airlines have stopped serving nuts on flights, which provides some reassurance for those with allergies, but the possibility of exposure cannot be fully ruled out. Airlines already take the welfare of their passengers very seriously and have processes in place to enable passengers to notify them in advance of their flight of any allergies to reduce risk and mitigate against potential exposure.The government is currently consulting on measures to improve the flying experience for those with nut allergies as part of the Aviation Strategy green paper, and welcomes contributions from interested parties.The consultation will conclude later this year. The government will then respond in due course. Switchboard 0300 330 3000 Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 The Aviation Minister Liz Sugg met with allergy sufferers, medical experts and airlines today to explore options for improving the flying experience for those who suffer from nut allergies.While passenger numbers continue to grow, barriers remain for people with additional needs, such as those suffering from allergies, meaning they are less likely to choose to fly or find the experience more difficult when they do.The meeting follows the publication of the consultation on the future of aviation, Aviation 2050, which proposes the introduction of a passenger charter. The charter will set out clear standards for a range of passenger issues which could include more consistent information for consumers with allergies.Aviation Minister Liz Sugg said: Passengers with nut allergies can face potentially life-threatening challenges when travelling which can cause significant stress and anxiety, especially for families with children. We want to see improved clarity and consistency in how the sector deals with allergies because it is vital that sufferers have the confidence to travel. It is clear that airlines want to help too and build on the good practice that already exists. They will now meet with food allergy sufferers to explore further what more can be done. The Department for Transport will work with industry, the CAA and allergy groups to ensure there is a central point where people can access the allergy policies of individual airlines and the procedures for alerting airlines when there are passengers travelling with allergy needs.

It will include seating for 80 hospital visitors, outpatients and staff.A spokesperson for Pret said: “Our focus on fresh, quality food has been a fundamental part of the Pret recipe since our first shop opened nearly 30 years ago, and we are pleased to be able to offer this within a hospital for the first time.“The new shop menu will offer a wide range of nutritious salads, sandwiches and wraps, through to hearty hot food, and the occasional pick-me-up treat.

Tokyo Olympic organizers reiterate ‘we will hold the games’

first_imgTOKYO (AP) — The president of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee had a simple message for fellow members of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Yoshiro Mori says the games will go on “no matter what situation would be with the coronavirus.” Mori is also a former Japanese prime minister. He has been the main cheerleader for several weeks in Japan and has been backed in Switzerland by International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach as reports have swirled that the Olympics might be canceled. The IOC has aggressively pushed back and says the Olympics will open on July 23.last_img read more

SMC’s Johnson elected to ASACCU

first_imgKaren Johnson, vice president for student affairs at the College, received national recognition by being elected to a one-year term to the board of directors for the Association for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities (ASACCU). The New York-based ASACCU holds annual conferences where leaders from schools across the country can share ideas, resources and advice with one another, Johnson said. “ASACCU is the resource for student affairs issues as they related to Catholic colleges and universities,” Johnson said. She said she started her work with the organization 10 years ago when she attended a weeklong workshop, “The Institute for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities.” “When the funding for the workshops ended, the Association was formed,” Johnson said. “During the second year of the Association, I hosted the annual conference at my previous institution, Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas.” She said she has remained an active member and has continued to volunteer for jobs since the conference was held in Texas. According to Johnson, she was nominated by a slate of officers. She said she and her fellow members on the board have goals “to improve [ASACCU’s] web presence, improve communication between members and serve as a great resource.” Johnson said her position should not affect her role at Saint Mary’s, but “it is always an honor to represent [the] institution on a national board.” Johnson said the knowledge she brings back from the board will help improve her work at the College. “Keeping current with what is happening in Catholic higher education always improves the way I do my job,” Johnson said. “Being able to share information and resources reminds me that we do have great services and supports here, but I can always learn and bring new programs to Saint Mary’s.” Johnson started at the College in 2006. As vice president for student affairs, she said she oversees the directors of athletics, multicultural services and student programs, student involvement, security, residence life and community standards and women’s health. She also said student affairs is there to listen to student concerns and “ensure that the Saint Mary’s woman has a well-rounded life experience at the College and is prepared to meet the world she enters into after commencement.” Between her work with schools and ASACCU, she has several years of experience. In her student affairs career that has spanned more than 30 years, Johnson said, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” She said she enjoys her work at the College. “I really love working at Saint Mary’s and have learned so much from the confident women who are students here,” Johnson said.last_img read more
