When you are a Labour Prime Minister you know you are in trouble when someone like Will Hutton turns on you. On 5 Live Breakfast today, Hutton described the regulation of banks over the last ten years as a "disaster" and pinned the blame for that regulation firmly on Gordon Brown.
He also maintained that Scottish taxpayers should be incredibly grateful to their English counterparts, who had saved their country from bankruptcy. He said it was a major national embarrassment for Scotland that their two biggest banks and now their biggest building society had gone bankrupt.
The biggest embarrassment for Scotland is that it was a Scot - Gordon Brown - who presided over the whole debacle.
Funny how the name Hutton is one which haunted Blair and is now doing the same to Gordon Brown.
