Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
A very good use of an apparent disadvantage here between Brown and Blair. Without this clash, their speeches (and therefore their agendas) wouldn’t have got nearly such wide coverage. And the clash doesn’t really damage them, it’s always been fairly clear that there’s a rift of some kind between Blair and Brown and this just adds fuel to the speculation. A very Blairite media manipulation, if you ask me.
