The poor old sod.

Chancellor Gordon Brown has provoked a storm by appearing to back England to host and win the football World Cup in 2018 – and not his native Scotland.

…The chancellor naturally added that “of course Scotland would do well”…

Whoever agreed with Gordon, or even worse, suggested to him, that a Britishness campaign would be the way to go, should be severly thumped. Not only by Gordon, but by all of us, who for years to come will have to endure hearing the Chancellor/PM-ish endlessly walking a tight rope – covering every possible interpretation of any statement that might somehow be linked to the relationship issues between England and Scotland.
God, it’s boring!

When Gordon becomes PM, this’ll be the one issue that’ll haunt him the most.
