Gordon Brown to be Called in to Sort Out Banking Crisis?

Gordon Brown to be Called in to Sort Out Banking Crisis? This article will have some choking!

I hear that he is taking a very keen interest in the activities of the French Socialists, particularly the increasingly clear signals that Dominique Strauss-Kahn (pictured above with Brown) is set to make a bid for his party's candidacy for the French Presidency.

Strauss-Kahn is now expected to launch his campaign very early in the New Year, a move that would give him enough time to take on chief rival Segolene Royal.
Of course, Brown's interest in all this Gallic intrigue is not merely that of a fraternal European socialist. Strauss-Kahn (known as DSK to his pals) happens to be the managing director of the IMF and will have to quit his post to run for the Elysee Palace.

There is no question that Brown would be tempted by any vacancy at the IMF, coming as it would with a global profile and a home in his beloved US. It would also give him the perfect excuse for finally qutting the Commons.

Now, it is true that any self-respecting Tory would die laughing at the thought of Brown as the man who would be called in to rescue economies struggling with deficits, debts and poor banking regulation.

The thought of Gordon Brown doing that job at the IMF terrifys me

Does anyone remember his constant "prudence" references in his budgets and comments that money was being put aside "for a rainy day" Well it Peed it down 2 years ago and ne'er a penny was seen cos he'd spent it all.
