DAILY MIRROR front page: “SERIOUSLY GOOD GORD Gordon Brown forged a powerful pact with the people yesterday.”

“Patriotic, passionate, packed with policy…the PM’s triumph.”

Pages 6 and 7: Brian Reade says “We’re in safe hands”.
Kevin Maguire says “Leader passes test”.

Pages 8 and 9: “GB’S GOT TALENT.” Says Gordon: “Every child has potential if they get the chance.” The potential to do what depends on policy and believing in Gordon.

“We must punish criminals and prevent crimes,” say Gordon. How to follow…


Brown’s no Winston Churchill. “A poignant 63-minute speech by Brown but just 12 seconds on the EU treaty” did anyone besides the Sun notice?

Page 29: “Steve Richards writes under the headline: “With the utmost skill, Brown has distanced himself from Blair and reinvigorated Labour.”

THE TIMES front page: “Brown sets out stall for Middle England.”

Gordon Brown wants Tory voters to vote for him. He is stood before a blue backdrop. His tie is dark. So too his suit. “Populist initiatives aim for Tory country.”

Pages 6 and 7: “Initiatives, promises, policies, aspirations and a definite feeling that we’d heard it all somewhere before.”

Page 7: Anne Treneman writes in her sketch: “It wasn’t a ‘me me me’
