How bad are things for Gordon Brown?

Things are so bad for the PM that Lily Allen is able to patronise him:

She has said that Gordon Brown is “a nice man” and that she could never become a Tory.

Although what of the Tories, Lily - aren't you working with them?
Boris Johnson, is “a cool guy” and that she wants to fulfil her promise, made in the wake of the glut of teenage stabbings last year, to help London’s troubled youth. But not until she has enough time to do it properly. “I could just turn up to something and shake people’s hands and have my photo taken, but I’d rather do something hands-on and actually achieve something.” Then she breaks into squealing giggles. “Boris wrote me a letter recently, but I’m not going to tell you what it’s about.”

So... so far, she's just been part of a big, splashy press launch and not actually done anything because she doesn't just want to do something for the cameras and then no do anything? I see.
