What the papers say

A leader in today's "Daily Star" newspaper, quoted without comment as it speaks for itself.

Darn Gord Thrashing

Gordon Brown has now been accused of trying to fiddle the forthcoming local elections.

Ministers are supposed to avoid making big policy promises in the three weeks before the poll. This is to stop them using their government powers to woo voters and gain an unfair advantage.

But yesterday they suddenly announced new anti-terrorism measures, including 300 extra police officers and support workers.

The Tories say this is shameless electioneering and have made an official complaint. But we would urge them to calm down.

Mr Brown could offer the country free beer and 10% wage rises all round ... and he would still get thrashed at next month's ballot.
