If you don't like negative politics do not click here.
Did you click? Probably you did. If you didn't the link is to a rather negative video about Gordon Brown on a blog written by Rachel Joyce. Rachel is a doctor. She is also the Conservative Party Candidate for Harrow West.
Dr Grumble sometimes comments on these political blogs but his comments do not always appear. Perhaps the blog owners find Grumble's comments offensive.
Grumble has wised up to this censorship. He now keeps a copy of his comments. Below is the comment Dr Grumble made in response to Rachel's negative post about Gordon Brown. Is it obscene? Is it offensive? Are the points made unreasonable? Judge for yourself.
Many of the things in the video have a ring of truth about them but a strategy of negative politics is high risk. Your post should have been accompanied by a well researched account of how the Conservatives had anticipated all of this and issued appropriate warnings. It is not just you, Rachel. This is a major problem for your party and, presumably, why Gordon has gone up in the polls while the economy has gone down.OK. Perhaps it is offensive. But it is true.
We have had the same problem with other Labour blunders like Iraq. When people like Dr Grumble wince at New Labour's policies we look to the Conservatives and wince yet again. We need a real opposition who can think for themselves, see when mistakes are being made before and not after they happen and can formulate better policies.
That's your problem, Rachel. Tell David.
