Is Brown’s “incompetence” remark a honey trap for Cameron?

Share This

You have to wonder sometimes if there might be some guile behind Gordon Brown’s apparent ineptitude.

Take last night’s remark about Peter Hain’s incompetence. A spectacular gaffe? Or, given that we have PMQs tomorrow and the strong likelihood that Cameron will not be able to resist the temptation to make something of it, is it a ploy to make his opponent look stupid.

Because as Lib Dem Voice has pointed out, Cameron has recently demonstrated a bit of “incompetence” himself. Handled correctly, and assuming Cameron falls for it, Brown could use this to devastating effect.

On the other hand, knowing Brown’s past form, he is more likely to fall flat on his face. But we’ll know in an hour.
