One big difference between 2008 and now is that Gordon Brown was in charge, knew what had to be done to ensure there was not compete meltdown and did it.

Gordon Brown in the Guardian today: “For the first time since the welfare state was created, it is the food bank, not social security, that is now our safety net..”

Imagine Gordon Brown laughing his balls off at the Queen's funeral after you partied the night before her husband's funeral?

Nah me either. Kwarteng should be sacked immediately.

British media have yet to ask Gordon Brown about that £124,494 he took from a Russian bank while serving as MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath @scottishlabour

This is increasingly looking politically unsustainable.

One Tory MP tells me: “It’s extinction level stuff. This is like 2008 but worse. We’re messing with the very fundamental principle of providing a home for your family. That’s why it’s different: it’s real stuff”.

Chris Grey 🇺🇦 “The intellectual world of Gordon Brown” gave us a pretty darn nice country to live in.

(Even if he was not as right as he claimed, and he was lucky with the prevailing times.)

I’d go back there in a heartbeat. Who wouldn’t?

I’m old enough to remember Kwasi going batshit furious because Gordon Brown raised govt borrowing to £8billion. Wouldn’t stop wanging on about it. Utterly irresponsible! Saw a forecast today that said Kwasi’s raising govt borrowing to £276billion. The end.

Everything good that can be said about Gordon Brown already has been by someone more articulate than me.

What I can say, with certainty, is that his policies helped millions of families like mine and we will never forget it. 🌹

Gordon Brown waiting in his livingroom for the treasury to give him a bell and save Britain once again ... 'Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man'

In 2007 Kwarteng criticised Gordon Brown, in @newstatesman, for increasing borrowing by £8bn: 'Brown boasts of his relationship with Prudence, but is not embarrassed by increased government borrowing.'

Today Kwarteng increased borrowing by… 9x as much. newstatesman.com/long-reads/200…

Remember how the Tories blamed Gordon Brown for the 2008 crash and some of their dim-witted supporters still believe it. Kwarteng has actually almost crashed the global economy but apparently Remainers, city slickers and fear of Starmer are to blame.

Gordon Brown 🔥 in Guardian today: ‘You cannot rely on a heartless government having a change of heart, but concerted action by the public can force a change of mind…The coming war must be against poverty, not against the poor.’

Let this from Gordon Brown sink in: 'Things are so bad that Human Relief Foundation which has spent 30 years focused entirely on aid to the world’s poorest countries, has opened a food bank in Birmingham.'

Sam Coates Sky In the absence of a functioning government, the wisdom of Gordon Brown's decision to make the Bank of England independent becomes ever more clear.
