If coming third in the polls and a seemingly collapsing campaign strategy wasn’t causing enough stress within the Labour party, a Labour parliamentary candidate from North west Norfolk has called Gordon Brown “the worst prime minister we have had in this country”.
According to the Lynn News newspaper, Manish Sood, who is contesting a Tory-held seat, said: “I believe Gordon Brown has been the worst prime minister we have had in this country … It is a disgrace and he owes an apology to the people and the Queen.”
Other choice quotes from the interview include:
“The role of ministers has gone bureaucratic and the action of ministers has gone downhill – it is corrupt.”
“The loss of social values is the basic problem and this is not what the Labour Party is about.”
He has also told Sky News – bizarrely – that the government should give “more power to the farmers”.
