Letters between Downing Street and respected UK economist
The standard Labour line about the crisis is "nobody saw it coming". I present you with these letters to and from Blair, Brown, Darling, Mandelson and Alastair Campbell, dating back to 1997, in which they are given warnings about a housing crash, why it would happen and specifically when it would happen. The economist says "I am your worst nightmare. I know exactly why New Labour will fail" He puts himself at the services of the government. He is ignored by all of them. You can find his videos on YouTube too - just search for "Fred Harrison". So, nobody saw it coming, right?
