Have a read of this Blog by Steve Green's 'Daily Referendum'
It is about what Gordon Brown's Mansion House speech in 2007.
Have a read of the blog;
I was reminded of Gordon Brown's Mansion House speech of 2007 by John in the comments of my previous post about Gordon's dodgy moral compass.
This speech was given JUST before the world's economy fell around our ears and it shows just how incompetent Gordon Brown was as Chancellor:
"So I congratulate you Lord Mayor and the City of London on these remarkable achievements, an era that history will record as the beginning of a new golden age for the City of London.
""And I believe it will be said of this age, the first decades of the 21st century, that out of the greatest restructuring of the global economy, perhaps even greater than the industrial revolution, a new world order was created.
"Golden Age? only it was to be Fools Gold.
I hope the other political parties remind him of this speech.
