Brown's Freudian Slip

Sky has the footage of Gordon Brown being heckled by a frustrated Labour supporter during his visit to a glass factory in Sunderland earlier today. They say:

"But the 38-year-old said he felt the Labour campaign was orchestrated and Mr Brown only spoke to party activists and did not get to talk to real people.

The IT worker, who comes from Sunderland but lives in London, said: "It's the fact that it's been such a controlled campaign.

Real politicians are going around talking to real people and Mr Brown isn't doing that. Mr Brown needs to see real electors, not just hand-picked people."


But because the focus is on the heckler, nobody seems to have noticed Brown's rather unfortunate misspeak around the one minute mark, where he says:

"So I have come here, to a region of fighters, to talk about the fight ahead. Not Labour's fight in this election, but our country's fight for recovery. Because I fight every minute of the day for my future... the future of Britain's hard-working families."

Ooops!
