Soon to be Prime Minister Gordon Brown has accused the government of making major mistakes over its handling of the situation in Iraq. He claimed that the Blair Government had completely mishandled the situation as opposed to the way the Brown Government would have done it.
Speaking at a Labour Party meeting in Bristol, Mr Brown said, "Tony is about to leave and I will be taking over so now is probably a good time to stick the knife in."
He said Tony Blair had fallen short and that his own policies would actually work. "Basically he was crap," said a pensive Mr Brown."Blair's policies were "Education, education, education. Mine will be education, education, education, education, education!"
"He tried to reform the NHS, I WILL reform the NHS." he added." In fact, everywhere Tony failed I will succeed. Anything he can do I can spin better."
Mr Brown, who becomes PM on 27th June had been privately critisized recently after he was overheard laughing in the Commons bar at the fact that he was about to become Prime Minister without having actually stood before the vote.
"I'm a valid Prime Minister," he stated today, "I have a valid name, not like Blair, his name sounds like what you say when you taste something nasty, like bleeeeaargh."
