We've seen numerous examples of everything that Vince proposes being copied by the Government - a rapid example was the suspension of short selling introduced days after Vince suggested. This weekend the Government is flying the idea of delivering big tax cuts for those who are struggling. It took them a while to read Make it Happen, didn't it?
Why doesn't Brown just sack Darling, offer Vince the chancellorship and cut out the middle man?
While mentioning Vince, I'm pleased to plug his visit to Ealing to preside over our fundraising auction and answer our questions. Details are here. If you live in or near Ealing, why not come along and have your questions answered by the man who warned of the current recession while the rest of the body politic accused him of scaremongering?
