Brown's Manchester Speech

Managed to listen to most of Gordon Brown's speech earlier this afternoon - I thought it was a pretty competent performance under (obvious) difficult circumstances.

The BBC coverage - here - has a reasonable balance of the wide-ranging opinions that the speech evoked!

Can't help but draw a comparison with last year, when there was no mention of any opposition party, whereas today the Conservatives drew at least a dozen direct references ...

A week may indeed be a long time in politics - a year even longer.
