'Gordon Goes Global' wrote Iain Dale yesterday.
Iain highlights the 'publicity blurb' for the Brownstuff's book, he quotes:
"We now live in a world of global trade, global financial flows, global movements of people and instant global communications. Our economies are connected as never before, and I believe that global economic problems require global solutions and global institutions. In writing my analysis of the financial crisis, I wanted to help explain how we got here, but more importantly to offer some recommendations as to how the next stage of globalisation can be managed so that the economy works for people and not the other way around."Hilarious and reminiscent of Crash Gordon's effort last year when he was sucking up to Obama* (you'll need your toes as well if you start counting the 'globals' on your fingers).The guy is clearly going all-out to make sure nobody things any of the UK's problems started before 2008, unless of course it can be blamed on pre 1997.
*Only 3 days later Brown was there in full suck-up mode where at the time I noted he failed to mention that the current problems 'started in America': "My favourite vomit-inducing moment was "There is no old Europe, no new Europe, there is only your friend Europe."
