In the weekly question and answer session in parliament, [UK Prime Minister Gordon] Brown said there needed to be agreement “as a world on a monetary and fiscal stimulus that will take the world out of depression.”
Brown’s spin doctors immediately said it was a slip of the tongue by the PM.
I think his comments were taken out of context.
Politicians don’t tell the truth, and neither should we expect them to.
This sort of thing is completely consistent.
Ah, cynicism. It will be the death of us all yet. But at least it will be an enjoyable death.
