    The pound fell 0.2 per cent to $1.5580 against the dollar and dropped 0.2 per cent to £0.8178 against the euro, just shy of the record low of £0.8208 it hit on Monday.

    what would you expect when interest rates fall by 1.5 points ?
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    and it is getting worse.

    Apparently according to the FT international investors are dumping UK government bonds.

    Brown is already talking to the IMF apparently. 1976 revisited.

    Brown borrows to give tax cuts and will not cut public spending. The Tories do not borrow for tax cuts and will cut public spending. That says it all, and as long as they are in power our deficit will continue to increase which will mean big tax rises in 2010. Still, the British public love high taxes don't they.

    He's helping them to find funding because he knows there is a good chance that he may need it. The deficit for this year will be 100 Billion and I heard him on the news yesterday say that 'all will be ok because of our low borrowing'. He is truly deluded.

    All you need is just another Thatcher.
    I've seen much of the rest of the world. It is brutal and cruel and dark, Rome is the light.
