In an interview with the Times this morning, Peter Mandelson says the choice in the genral election is between:
“granite and plastic – between Brown who has been tested and Cameron who is untested; between Brown who knows who to call in a crisis and Cameron who does not.”
Mandelson also suggests Gordon Brown may not serve a full term if Labour wins the general election:
“They either go five more years or four or three, or however many it is, with the person they know and can depend on, or switch horses mid-stream before we have fully come through the recession and in doing so take a heck of a gamble.”
Gordon Brown himself, of course, has pledged to serve a full term if he wins.
