Stop blaming Gordon Brown

AS an exercise in pointless banality it would be difficult to beat Louis Kasatkin's recent offering (Letters, December 29).

Come on folks, Gordon Brown could not possibly have caused the global recession, nor was he the main assistant of its spread in Britain.

Come out of denial. In return I will acknowledge that he was not the ideal PM. Many have qualified for that description and not all of them Labour by any means.

It's time that we got around to "we're all in this together".

So far it has been merely the biggest political lie of recent times.
