Hat tip to Tacitus
who left this comment on Tom Harris MP's blog this morning:
"Tom, donít know if you heard Brown being interviewed
by Simon Mayo the other day, but the opening exchange
was a pearl
SM: How are you?
GB: Er OK but er Iím er trying to work through at
the moment how we can give real help to families and
to businesses over this period when things are very
difficult and er obviously the cut in interest rates
today helps er what weíve announced yesterday to help
mortgage er holders er helps and Iím just determined
that we do everything in our power to take people through
these er difficult world times in a way that er shows
that we can er actually give help to people.
I rest my case."
You can listen to this exchange of ideas here: Never
