The BBC’s reaction to Brown’s speech

The BBC’s Iain Watson with his analysis of Brown’s speech:

The event resembled daytime Jerry Springer-style chat show; with an invited audience of "real people" and a few audience "plants" - in this case cabinet members who stood up from the floor, not the stage, and said their piece.

And he is spot on with this:

And by inviting people to take a second look at Labour he was in effect admitting that the party and perhaps even his leadership of it had alienated some natural Labour supporters and had failed to win back many who had defected to the Lib Dems at the last election.

In other words, the reason why Brown shouldn't be leading the Labour party at the election.
