Gordon Brown has been a party to the EU attempts to stave off Greece defaulting on debts.

But why does he not say to the EU that Greece should be like Britain and not worry about cutting the deficit until next year? After all he is saying that to us - so why is it not the same for Greece.

Nor has anyone yet seen fit to ask him if and when we do implement the necessary cuts to redress our debt they will be as explosive as the Greek experience.

The other point to bear in mind is that the incoming govt found the situation far worse than expected.

Robinson in Harlow - an interview with a voter on the news shows how low politics is held. others could wield an influence. it would be the height of ironies if voters upset with the system kept Brown in power.

We have not got a budget date as Brown is still working out his dividing lines.

Many thanks for the link Iain. Greatly appreciated.

I have to go with trevor regarding the Greece debts.

Brown is all smoke and mirrors - but we know that don't we?

Iain, the story by SUBROSA, reminds me of a story of about two weeks ago. That story was about Labour giving large amounts of tax payers money to the unions under contrived pretexts. e.g. Union training, etc. This gives the unions spare money to donate back to Labour.
