"Gordon Brown will today urge Wall Street bankers to show greater transparency in revealing the extent of their losses to help bring a quick end to the global credit crunch." http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article3756193.ece And after they have stopped laughing will tell him, just as the British banks did yesterday, to fcuk a very long way off. But wait: there is more: Asked about the U.S. presidential candidates' varying positions on withdrawal from Iraq, Brown said the British experience showed that reducing troop levels was feasible. "We've been able to move to a situation where we are training the forces â not actually involved in the combat itself," he said. "We're in a position where we have been able to drawdown. So we've been able to prove that you can actually reduce the numbers." Have I missed something???
