He's lost it, hasn't he? Brown. He doesn't want to understand that either there must be a general election or there must be a determined rejection of democracy. He can't go on wandering about Southwold pretending there is a job to do. There isn't for him as Prime Minister. Not unless he's prepared to accept the reality of refusing to go to the country.
Will he face the electorate and accept their judgment, in full, immediately, or will he use state power illegitimately to maintain his position?
Permitting this deluded man to press on into infamy will be the death knell of the Labour movement; the parliamentary Labour party is so steeped in self interest and corruption it can barely be regarded as part of that movement, unless it moves to co-ordinate the removal of a would be tyrant at once.
