Gordon Brown - My Fake Diary
Sunday, 26 August 2012
Speaking at the Edinburgh book festival today, I attempted to make the recent success of Team GB to the "Better Together" campaign what the continued success of their national football team is to Spanish Unionists.
I argued that the pooling of resources across the nation allowed a combined British team to be much more successful than the sum of the parts would have been, and that this dynamic carries over to other areas of policy, singling out foreign affairs, health and even social welfare.
Warmed by the last embers of the "feel good factor" of the Olympics it is easy to mistake this for an incisive argument in favour of the Union; however, it fails to stand up under closer analysis doesn't it?
