image for Gordon Brown 'Best Leader', Says Poll
My hero

Gordon Brown is the best person to lead Britain through the current economic downturn, according to the results of a survey published today.

The survey, conducted by independent think-tank LabourList, gave voters the choice between Gordon Brown, Kim Jong-Il, Robert Mugabe and the voices in Derek Draper's head as the best choices to run the economy. A staggering 53% of the 27 regular LabourList readers voted, with Brown a clear winner with 51% of the vote. Robert Mugabe came second, with many of those polled pointing to his decisive handling of Opposition issues.

The poll is the first to show Labour ahead in anything for some considerable time, and has been pounced on by Labour lunaticssupporters as evidence of their popularity in the mainstream.

The result was welcomed by Business Secretary Lord Mandelson, who said, "this result proves that Britain Loves Gordon, and that we need him in a time when we need a steady nerve and cool judgement".

Mr Mandelson admitted that the Government is in 'an uncomfortable place politically', but added, "there's nothing wrong with an uncomfortable place now and again, ducky".
