“Lehman Brothers is a great company today that can both look backwards with pride and look forwards with hope. And in wishing Lehman Brothers the success it deserves for its future, let me thank you for the privilege of being here and formally declare this new building open.”
- Gordon Brown, opening Lehman’s flashy new European HQ, Canary Wharf, 5 April 2004

By the way:
Lehmans collapsed in 2008 with debts of $6 billion.
Lehamns paid bonuses in 2006 of $8.7 billion.


I see nothing wrong with Gordon Brown. Strange the British media is so anti him. Is some of this because he is a Scotsman?


He's a tax and spend socialist.

But he's not a traditional one.

In the past Labour used to show people how much they borrowed. Gordon has managed to hide his spending in off-balance sheet public-private partnerships (which have been very poor value for money).

Unfortunately, the UK is obliged to start showing this GBP 200 billion in the public accounts very soon. GB will claim "it's the global economy, stupid!"
