If I were Gordon Brown - I'd resign.
I do firmly believe that he had a lot to do with this crisis.
Alarm bells were ringing about the state of the nation's debt more than 5 years ago, yet he did nothing either as chancellor or as prime minister.
He presided over the whole chain of events leading up to this.
I don't believe that allowing him to throw MY money into Jaguar Land Rover, or a bank, or a coffee house is going to help in any way.
But it will saddle the nation with debt for years to come.
Particularly if he does as I expect and devalues the pound by printing more money.
If I were a sensible Prime Minister, I'd be looking at Government and Whitehall and the Civil Service and questioning why it employs so many when it used to run with many fewer people.
Then I'd look to cut the cost of Government by getting rid of a lot of the parasites who have crept themselves into a government office with a cushy pension.
When times are hard, you have to cut your cloth accordingly.
And you can't run a fat government when the rest of the nation is really struggling.
Funny isn't it?
When things went well, there was no mention of a global boom.
Instead he was a "prudent" chancellor, promising to eradicate boom and bust forever.
Now things are going badly, and it's claimed that all the problems originate abroad. This has to be a "global" crisis, to transfer blame away from where it truly lies.
The truth is that events abroad have been merely the trigger to lose Gordon his precarious grip on the economy.
