Not exactly Freudian
The Conservatives have called on Gordon Brown to clarify his remarks suggesting the world was in a depression. At prime minister's questions he told MPs: "We should agree as a world on a monetary and fiscal stimulus that will take the world out of re... depression." The Tories urged him to explain what he meant and said the PM should be careful with language. Shadow chancellor George Osborne said: "The prime minister must personally and urgently clarify whether his statement today that the world is in 'depression' was a slip of the tongue, or whether he knows something that we don't."
