Gordon Brown goes into hiding!

Joining up the dots of some of today's news, and indeed blogosphere can be quite interesting.

Today is the 300th anniversary of the Act of Union between England and Wales, on the one hand, and Scotland on the other. It is sure a good cause for celebration. In fact Gordon Brown sent out invites to a party to be held at Number 11, according to this from Iain Dale.

But then the inflation figures come out, and all of a sudden Gordon is off to India, and Tony Blair is not available either. Mind you with Scotland looking to kick Labour where it really hurts in May, perhaps this is the anniversary for a couple about to divorce so little celebrated. Shame really. I like the Union.

Couldn't agree more Benedict. Getting a bit of a habit with old Gordon.

By the way I like the blog. You should shout about it a bit more....

Ian, yes it is a bit of a habit with Gordon. Thanks for the kind words by the way!
