Open the gate.. welcome to this dimension..
I like Gordon Brown, I think he's probably smart, genuine, and honest.
But I can't help thinking when I see him 'don his socialist suit' like he is in this article that there's a complete omission of admission about the role 'New Labour' played helping along the neocon agenda in the UK.
He's right, of course, something (and probably something radical) has to be done about costs otherwise the UK will continue on its unstable trajectory (and it might get ugly as Nesrine Malik points out), politically and socially, to who knows where.
But I'm not at all sure that history will be kind to the 'Blair/Brown' years and their contribution to unleashing the uber-capitalism forces which are probably the root cause of what is now 'in play'.
