Setting the bar very low - Gordon Brown's measure of success

One section that stood out from a reasonable speech from Gordon Brown today was the very low benchmark of achievement he had set himself.

"Understand that all the attacks, all the polls, all the headlines, all the criticism, it's all worth it, if in doing this job I make life better for one child, one family, one community "

So if you are feeling bored tomorrow, lets try and make Gordon Brown feel good about himself because although if we all looked it's unlikely we'd find one community he has helped, and given the state of inflation and the effect of fuel and food price rises, it is highly improbable we would find a family he has helped, if we ask surely to god if we all went out we might at least one child in the country whose life he has made better ?
