Gordon Brown - speech of the campaign
Win, lose or draw these ten minutes in front of Citizens' UK in the Methodist Central Hall today will go down as Gordon Brown's most impassioned performance ever, and the speech of the 2010 election campaign.
It has everything - emotion, history, family, faith - even a protester mounting the stage.
You cannot make a speech like this every day, and the danger is that historically it may become an echo of another great Labour speech, Neil Kinnock's "I warn you not be ordinary..." on the eve of the 1983 election.
But let's leave history for later. This is him - Gordon Brown, heart and soul bared, fighting for what he believes.
