@drew_ritchie: if he really understood global economics, Britain wouldn't have the level of debt we have today. We don't need someone who understand, we need someone who has right ethical and moral values so that state and corporate organizations are regulated and controlled for the good of all. Neither Tories nor Labor have clean conscience, Liberal Democrats are the only ones that have a chance.
Gordon Brown's understanding of the world economy and his progressive vision for it's future together with the global leadership ability he has demostrated on these issues is the reason I will be voting Labour at the next general election.
