It seems that Mr Brown made a bit of a boo boo while I was wending my way to Russia. Others have commented enough on Gordon saving the world so I won't add my two pennyworth, except to say that I have expected him to add "from the crisis which started in America." I was more interested in what he added afterwards, which no one seems to have picked up on. Listen to the clip above and you can clearly hear him say...
"Not a single depositer in Britain lost any money".
That is not just what Fraser Nelson would call a 'Brownie'. It was a whopper. Indeed, it is not unfair to call it a lie. How does he think he can get away with these constant untruths?
I really do think there's something deeply psychological going on here. I have no doubt that in his own mind he really does believe that he personally has saved the world. It wasn't a slip of the tongue. That's what he really thinks. This is a man so delusional that he has come to believe his own propaganda. Very dangerous.
