Poor Mr. Darling; he becomes Chancellor and the UK economy begins to fall apart. I saw him on Channel Four news last night and I couldn't help feeling sorry for him. The poor man is beginning to look like patsy. It will only be a matter of time before he will have to "take responsibility" for missing data, the credit crunch, and the upcoming recession.
Let us get the record start. Darling was not responsible for a) Northern Rock, b) the housing bubble, or c) rising inflation. For these particular disasters and errors, we must look to Brown, King, the FSA and the MPC.
