Brown's First Year.

I have just finished watching Andrew Rawnsley's documentary on Gordon Brown's first year as Prime Minister.

I don't think it told us anything new. It confirmed what we already expected:

An essentially good man who has self-inflicted his own wounds firstly with the election-that-never-was.

It was interesting to hear some of the Cabinet like Jack Straw discuss their advice to Brown about whether or not to hold an election, although I would have liked to hear what Balls, Miliband and Alexander have to say for themselves. They probably have the most to answer for.

It didn't offer much in the way of hope or encouragement for the future though.
