Scandal in British Parliament May Bring Down Brown

I'm not sure how closely readers follow Euro-politics, but I imagine a good many of you keep a weather-eye on our friends in Britain. For those who don't, this article lays out Gordon Brown's ongoing difficulties compounded by a fantastically comical Parliamentary expense account scandal stretching across all the major parties there.

Never embraced with the fervor of his predecessor Tony Blair, Brown is sinking fast. I have a feeling that Britain will be the next big European government to move rightward (toward the center, that is), hopefully presaging the same thing here.
