|Gordo Sets Record|
Now this particular chestnut has been churning through the rumour mills for sometime - here's some coverage from May 2010, for instance. And here's some from 2009. Presumably, that's Gordo's PR machine testing the waters of political opinion - typical New Labour mind-f₪€kery.
Which makes it all the more important that every time this idea rears its ugly head, we give it the hammering it deserves.
This week, the Prime Minister flatly promised that he'd block such a move, and offered some pointers toward more likely winners at the Pontefract races.
Seriously, folks, don't let Gordon anywhere near the international cash register. He'll blow the lot next time.
