Gordon Brown appeals to voters over economy

By Robert Winnett, Deputy Political Editor

Last Updated: 7:39am GMT 19/03/2008Page 1 of 3

Gordon Brown has appealed to voters not to lose confidence in Labour as the economic situation deteriorates.
How to survive the crunch and get a mortgage
Your view: Is Britain heading for a Great Depression?
Bank's rate-cut dilemma as inflation rises
After senior Treasury officials yesterday warned homeowners that the era of cheap mortgages is over, the Prime Minister wrote in the Sun to stress the credentials of his Government.
"The British people konw this is going to be a tough year," Mr Brown wrote.
"They are already feeling the pinch with their shopping and fuel bills. But they know that the
Labour Government has got the economy through tough times in the past."
.../

But Gordon keeps telling us that the last decade under his watch has NOT been "tough times in the past." Is he referring to Labour's opposition during the Thatcher years when the Tories brought the UK back from the brink of Scargilism?

At least he is now admitting the miracle years he gave us all are over.

No point in him turning to the voters to change their minds in the polls. They see the damage done by his credit bubble economics, mass immigration and a hands off approach in the area of financial prudence. He is political history and the clock is ticking for a major NuLabour revolt and vote of confidence.

From the article:

Michael Fallon, a senior Conservative member of the Treasury select committee, accused the Government of "extraordinary complacency".
"The Treasury is living in a dream world, they simply don't understand the depth of the credit crisis," he said. "Their analysis is not shared by anyone I have spoken to in the City. Other countries have taken far firmer action
."

It is possible that, after 11 years in power, a sort of delusional apathy has set in with Brown and his followers. The entire miracle is unwravelling and Brown just cannot accept it, or take responsibility for his very large part of it. It is classic bunker mentality.

Yes it is a failure of the German peopleall the fault of the Tories. The collapsing economy will be rebuilt because it is fundementally strong. I did a fantastic job.
