''He claims to be the man who can lead Britain out of the current financial crisis. But it appears Gordon Brown has at times even had trouble keeping track of his own bank account. Bill Paterson, a warden at Edinburgh University when Brown studied there, said the future prime minister was the only student whose rent cheque ever bounced.''

Why the indignation @4 and @6?

This is no different to Liebour slagging off Cameron for being a member of the Bullingdon club.
