In other news Gordon Brown says that the Labour party would be 'useless and relentless performers' and were 'ready to answer the call of the few, cha.' He also pledged 'fare taxes' and 'to erase the minimum wage'. Well, that's what I heard. ;-)
What we will not hear much about though, to judge by the way this campaign has gone so far, is debt, the black hole that deepens with every deficit. Or DEBT! as it rightly should be written every time. It’s as if the parties and leaders have decided to ignore the issue for the duration, for fear of putting off the voters. From Labour this is no surprise. Gordon Brown has no interest in being interested in the issue, and even considers it an economic virtue, a price worth paying to save us from economic collapse. To address DEBT! and what must be done about it would be to draw attention to his record of spending recklessness dating back to the good times of 2002-3.
