Recession gets longer

Gordon Brown

“Britain best placed to weather the storm”

  • A record six quarters on negative growth, the longest British recession in modern records.
  • France and Germany have been growing for the last six months.
  • Germany refused to join Brown’s fiscal madness, wouldn’t throw any more money away.
  • Pound falls another 1% against dollar.
  • Car production down 16%
  • Service industry shrinks by 0.2%

‘It’s clear Gordon Brown’s recession plan has not worked, there is no economic leadership in this country and we urgently need a change of direction to get this country working again.
‘There are many millions of people who will be deeply concerned to see that Britain is still in recession six months after France and Germany came out of recession. It destroys the myth that Britain was better prepared.’ – George Osborne.

Why doesn’t Gordon just go back to making YouTube comedies?
