Gordon Brown, on CiF, writing about the elections in Burma:
"Next Sunday, 7 November, had the potential to be a truly great day. The first Burmese elections since 1990 should have seen grassroots and civilian candidates compete in free elections, as 60 million citizens finally threw off a brutal military dictatorship in front of international observers and the global media."
As did 2010, where 60 million citizens finally had the opportunuty to throw off a brutal dictatorship in front of international observers and the global media. And the only change that happened was in the colour of the dictatorship!
Unfortunately, it didn't quite happen, did it, because Cameron could not - to use a football analogy - put the 'f'ing ball in the net'.
Democracy is a bitch, is it not Gordon?
