Well it looks like Gordon Brown has gone into "5 loaves and 2 fishes" mode. He is convinced that there is an everlasting supply of money for him to throw at just about everything, I wonder if anyone is keeping an inventory.
If G.B. is so wonderful, then why is the UK pound almost in freefall against the other major currencies, could it just be that the policies over the last years have made this country so vunerable, and the proposed borrowing levels insane. Also that since our manufacturing industry has virtually been destroyed and we have relied upon the financial sector so much.
