If you managed to survive Gordon Brown's speech yesterday you may have been shocked as I was when I heard the 'PM' say that George Osbourne had said "That it’s a function of financial markets that people make loads of money out of the misery of others"
When I heard that my first thought was - what a stupid and nasty thing for George Osbourne to say.
Imagine my shock when I look at the FT today and what George Osbourne said was
“Well look, no one takes pleasure from people making money out of the misery of others, but that is a function of capitalist markets.”
Now that quote is meant in entirely a different context as the one Brown uses.
When will the public wake up to the fact that Brown is a liar and a bully?
