Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That lesson has already been propagated in the debate over Brown's tax increase.  As TBG noted below, Brown has shown signs of almost figuring out how shit this whole New Labour thing has been.  And immediately following his tax announcement, a big chunk of the Labour Party came out on television to kneecap him and push the kind of supply-side dogma that doesn't even pass for serious discussion among the Tories (or at least didn't when David Davis pushed it).

The sad thing is that, had he realized it earlier (say, when he took over as PM), he'd probably be stomping Cameron by now.  Security is what people want in times of economic crisis like this, yet Britain is going to be taken over by...the Tories.

I agree with everybody else that it's disgraceful that Brown is going to be the one to pay for it all.  I've always had a soft spot for Brown, and I'm certainly less enthusiastic about the idea of him going than I am about the general idea of Labour being punished.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
