Gordon Brown and Leveson

 There appears to be incredulity amongst the parliamentary press corps at the evidence delivered to the Leveson Inquiry by former PM Gordon Brown. Given the range of 'tweets' recorded on the Guido Fawkes blog surely questions have to be asked about his credibility and honesty.

Surely he was 'on oath' so given the breadth of expression that he 'lied and lied' surely Lord Leveson either has to recall him or the police should charge him with perjury. If he is allowed on oath to distort what many consider to be known facts then surely there is no alternative unless of course he is immune to prosecution. If that is the case and nobody should be above the law then why call him to take the stand?

I have often thought that the NoLab years of Blair/Brown/Mandelson/Reid etc etc would one day go down in history as the blackest ever decade. They certainly changed our society which of course is what they intended to do but many people think that there is something very strange about Gordon Brown.

What I find difficult to understand is that given the depth of the evidence that Blair and Brown did not appear to act in the best interests of the country why are they always given such an easy ride in public? I get the impression that they are being protected by some very powerful people.
