He sold 400 tons at a loss to this country of $1155 an ounce! The man is an absolute moron almost criminally so! I wouldn't trust him to run an ice cream cart, never mind our countries economy!
Listening to his advice on the economy is akin to listening Pol Pot on running a well run free democracy!!
True, but did not Brown infamously state it was his intention to 'take the armed forces down a peg or two'?Suppose it would have sorted the MOD out until the countries economy gets back on track proper.
Oh I so hope he reads these comments, however sadly the deluded idiot will probably think its praise, few men have lived to be so derided in their own lifetime!!Already heavily discounted on Amazon.
Now the blurb says: "Long admired for his grasp of economic issues, Brown's book will be a work of paramount interest during these uncertain financial times and is sure to attract intense media coverage. The book offers a unique perspective on the financial crisis as well as innovative ideas that will help create a sound economic future......"

Do you think?He's just trying to say something intelligent/controversial to promote his book, which will probably be less successful than Blair's.
