I watched the informal press conference between Brown and Obama on Newsnight last night. Would have watched earlier but the West Brom match called. Anyway on a question about the economic crisis our leader is laughing and smiling away delighted that he can blame the rest of the world. When he realises that perhaps that is not quite the right approach he starts to answer in his now standard fashion. Camera turns to Barrack who is looking at Brown with an expression which could only be described as disdain. He must have been thinking where did they get this idiot?. I don’t know about you but I’m pretty fed up with (Brown) seeing him prancing around the world grinning like a Cheshire cat and laughing at this crisis. I think his advisers have told him to look more cheerful. Well it ain’t cheering me up or any of the other folk who are at rick of loosing everything because of his policies.
So Tom Watson MP perhaps this is one of those issues that are more important to West Brom East than political posturing over a St. Georges day march. Lots of folk in Newton are hurting.
