Just heard, live, at 120832A MAY , Gordon Brown say: "When I WAS Chancellor of the Exchequer......". From one plastic spiv to a growling meglomaniacal weirdo. How does he speak so long without breathing ? This man is going to be so well out of his depth we are going to head into serious trouble. We are in financial trouble already, but as PM, knowing the financial mess is largely his doing, he will go to any lengths to hide the facts. When he loses the next election, he will say words to the effect: 'Look how quickly the Tories have spoilt my efforts'. We have a problem.
