Gordon Brown, the UK chancellor of the exchequer, faces embarrassing censure from the European Commission next week, when Brussels will recommend the launch of an excessive deficit procedure against Britain for its failure to keep public borrowing below 3 per cent of gross domestic product.

And there is Gordon doing his best for Europe by lecturing them on how to run to run their economies. What kind of ingratitude is this?

Gordie Babes is a dillusional, arrogant SOB...

Tried to find a link for an article I saw in the Daily Mail today - but it's not on this is money yet.. Main gist typed below....

"Economy will be eclipsed by Europe...

The euro area will outpace Britain's economy ths year for the first time in more than a decade, experts said.

In the latest sign that the economic golden age has drawn to an end, the UK will be overtaken in the growth stakes by its single currency neighbours this year, according to Oxford Economic Forecasting.

The eurozone will grown by 2.2% while Britain will expand by 2.1%, it predicted. This would be the first time the eurozone has grown faster since 1995.

The new will be seen as a wake-up call for Gordon Brown, who has urges his Continental neighbours to follow the UK's example in encouraging growth.

Research produced by Grant Thornton showed that business optimism in the UK has fallen below the EU average for the first time in 4 years. The study showed medium-sized businesses are almot 5 times more pessimistic than last year....


Economist Roger Bootle warned that this "could well mark the start of a bleaker period for the UK corporate sector."
