No pessimism, says Gordon Brown
Churchill famously said: "Keep buggering on." Buggering on and muddling through have served the British well, supplemented by an occasional bit of buggering off and buggering about. This is no longer good enough. Our Dear Leader Gordon Brown wants us to whistle a happy tune as we soldier on up the Sunshine Mountain. From the BBC:
The economic crisis should be treated as "the difficult birth-pangs of a new global order", with new rules introduced on trade, Gordon Brown says.
The prime minister set out a series of actions designed to "replace fear with confidence" and warned against just "muddling through as pessimists".
During a speech defending his handling of the crisis he also warned against the "deglobalisation threat".
We few, we happy few, we band of un-de-globailsers.
