The Times pours forth sympathy for Gordy B.:
GORDON BROWN’S carefully laid plans for a G20 deal on worldwide tax cuts have been scuppered by an eve-of-summit ambush by European leaders.The same pack of clowns running the show swear (on your next paycheck) that they know how to un-frobnicate the situation. Glad that Angel Merkel, unlike our POTUS, seems to have a pair. More leaders like her, or, even gutsier, Daniel Hannan, please. Daniel's brilliant Brown bludgeoning bears repeated view and study.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, last night led the assault on the prime minister’s "global new deal" for a $2 trillion-plus fiscal stimulus to end the recession.
Update: (via Drudge)
Brown's 1.4 trillion pound leak. I think, in British English, this is called "taking the piss".
