Brown has just been interviewed on Sky News by Adam Bolton and when asked if selling gold at a record low was a mistake managed to blame the Tories!
The man is incredible.
When the economy was booming it was because of his policies not global conditions.
When the economy goes wrong and the housing market falls it is global conditions not his policies.
When he sells gold at a record low it's not his fault it's the Tories!!
If he just said - in hindsight it was the wrong time to sell, but we needed to diversify and there are a lot of things we would not do with hindsight, he would get a bit of respect.
