I am reminded of Titian

So Gordon Brown is reminded of Titian. Well I am reminded of the Blame Culture. Though now that there is a new President across the pond the Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP needs to be a bit more careful about what he says about sub prime, in terms of apportioning blame for the knock on effect on the UK economy. He therefore devised a plan of blaming everybody, on the basis that thie diffusion of responsibility would mean that only a very small speck of mud would stick to his face.

Somehow I don’t think so. It would be too much to expect that he would own up to his mistakes, and admit that the dire state of the British economy is primarily due to HIS incompetence in the years as Chancellor. Actually I am more reminded of Laurel and Hardy, except that Alistair Darling can’t really be blamed for getting us into this mess. As an aside what Ollie actually said was “Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into.”

Possibly one should interpret Gordon Brown’s comments in a different way. He may be thinking that he needs to be given a lifetime as Prime Minister, so that at the end of his life he can confidently state that he knows how to run a country. What a nightmare scenario.
