Hi,There's a stench of decay about Gordon Brown, just as there was about the last knockings of the Callaghan government. His authority is shot to pieces. For Rooker-Wise, read Frank Field.
Why are the backbenches and the unions cutting up rough now? Because they can.
They can smell Gordon's weakness. They figure the game's up and they may as well make the most of it.
Q1 What is Callaghan (government)?
Q2 What is Rooker-Wise?
Q3 Who is Frank Field?
Q4 What is the meaning of " game's up" ?
Thank you. :)
Thanks for your good reply. It seems it is far more difficult to read ariticles by a columnist than news.
