Gordon Brown in denial that the economic mess we are in is due to him
When Gordon Brown spoke to Evan Davis on the Today Programme on Friday he was given plenty of opportunities admit that his government had made some mistakes and that part of the economic mess we find ourselves in is due to him. Not what we need at a time of crisis – can someone please take away his spade! At the same time can we take heed of some sound advice offered by former British ambassador to Washington Sir Christopher Meyer on BBC1’s Question Time when he called for an end to party politics during the economic crisis? A call that was completely ignored by Liam Fox who attacked the Government's current economic policy and called for an immediate general election! We are in crisis and as Iain Martin quips; “Denial is a river in Egypt”.
