Tough? Brown looks more like an image-obsessed wimp

"Brown appears to hope that, if the Commons denies him more power, he will benefit from having meant to be tough while his enemies are the weak ones. To the credit of British politics, this is unlikely to work. Not the opposition, not the judiciary, not the police, not the press, not the opinion polls, not even normally somnolent Labour MPs, like seeing Britain portrayed in this way. They are ashamed at their country becoming the most watched, bugged, monitored and now interned free nation in Europe." —Simon Jenkins
