"That was a disaster. Should never have put me with that woman ... whose idea was that?"Politicians should not be afraid of meeting the voters, even if they don't like them. If Brown doesn't think that he can face people who disagree with them and argue his case strongly, even if he cannot convince them, then what on earth is he doing in politics? I also don't like Brown looking for someone to blame.
It is one of the strengths of David Cameron, who can take on hecklers and dissenters and rationally stick to his guns, regardless of whether it wins them over. He may mutter or think "morons" as he walks away, but I bet he would never ask why he was put in front of those who disagree.
