Brown certainly appears frustrated and "furious that the current debate focuses on his integrity and his honesty" but he has ONLY himself to blame: no aides, no assitants, no cabinet colleagues, no other minister. The BBC's Nick Robinson and the C word:
Eh? Surely not...this is the PM right? Not a Rory Bremner sketch? David Cameron may not be very popular with his constant attacks on Brown but he is making Brown look more out of touch.
" [Brown] has changed his description of what is happening to capital expenditure three times in three weeks at PMQs...Today, he also declared that current spending would go up by "zero per cent"
"...neither the prime minister nor Lord Mandelson seem to put much store by what the Treasury says these days. Curious times indeed." Image link to Stephanomics; Who to believe?
