Brown appoints Darling as chancellor
LONDON (Reuters) - Alistair Darling has been appointed as chancellor, an aide to Prime Minister Gordon Brown confirmed on Thursday, in a move that signals
continuity in economic policy
"We do not expect to see any major changes
in fiscal policy, particularly as we strongly suspect that Gordon Brown will maintain a very keen interest in events at the Treasury. Furthermore, the current state of the public finances mean that the new chancellor has very limited room for manoeuvre."

Despite Crash Gordon's statement that his ascendancy will mean "change" the reality appears to be "no change" just the same old miracle economics albeit with no more room to maneuver. Poor old Darling he gets first sip of the poisoned chalice.

Has he not been called a control freak, darling won't be able to decide what day of the week it is without running it past Crash first.

The new Chancellor, Alistair Darling, has issued a message of continuity, indicating that he will do little to change the Treasury following a decade of Gordon Brown.

Seems the press have caught onto the idea that its going to be more of the same, or so they hope. :ph34r:
