Cameron: Recession Has Hammered The Final Nail In The Coffin Of Brown

Recommended Posts

Recession has hammered the final nail in the coffin of Brown

David Cameron will declare this afternoon that the recession has "hammered the final nail in the coffin" of big government as he blames Gordon Brown for helping create the financial crisis by running up too much public debt.

In a speech to the centre-left Demos thinktank this afternoon, Cameron will say: "This recession doesn't vindicate big government; it hammers the final nail in its coffin. We know that we're in this mess is because of too much debt. Too much banking debt, too much personal debt and too much government debt.

"The scale of Labour's debt crisis is what puts us in such a weak position compared to other countries. It's why Labour can't do much to help people right now - they've run out of money. And it's why our response cannot be to borrow more and make government even bigger."

Yes we know they've run of out money but surely Brown must have a Plan B musn't he, as he did promise 'no boom-no bust'!

Nice to see the Blue Team coming out with something that actually sounds a bit Tory, and a real pleasure to see politics moving away from a contest over who can buy the most interactive whiteboards* for schools, and whose lil' windmill thing can provide the highest percentage of the power required to run the extractor fan in the toilet.

* Whoops! Diversity infringement! I meant "boards of variable colour".

I read that and was reminded of chairman Mao's brilliant plan whereby everybody had to build blast furnaces in their back garden. They were then given quotas to meet, but no iron ore etc to actually use. Many ended up melting down their tools etc into useless scrap to meet the quota.
