Gordon Brown claims high ground

What Douglas Carswell may have overlooked is that Brown always sounds good in the pincer-grasp of a crisis.

Brown has managed to spin the Speaker's removal into a magisterial report on the joint meeting of party leaders the Speaker had originally called.

Brown gave the appearance of single-handedly getting to grips with the trousergate problem and wound proposals on the future modernising of parliamentary procedures into a tale of progressive political reforms he's been introducing for the last 12 years.

But tomorrow is another day for Labour's prime minister. And a day is a long time in revolutionary politics.
