Good old Gordon: he realised his mistake and admitted it and now says his Darling Chancellor was right [about coming out of recession at the end of the year; his optimistic growth forecasts aren't so credible] and that he Brown now agrees with what Darling said 6 months ago...oops, just woke up... No, of course Gordon didn't say that, he just ignored everything he'd said before* and VOWED that HE would restore growth by the end of this year. So, no change there then, anything bad is ignored and nothing to do with him, and anything good is his doing. How quaint...I shall never forget what Gavin Corder told us, "I thought you might like to know that quaint once meant cunt."
*Brown told the BBC's Andrew Marr show on 27 September: "I think you'll see figures pretty soon that shows the action that Britain is taking yielding effect … There's a suspended judgment as people see us coming out of the recessions." [Guardian]
