There hasn’t been another Northern Rock

Things must be getting very bad for Gordon Brown. Today’s news carries the story that the IRA’s army council no longer functions, and that its terrorist structure has now been disbanded. This evidence has arisen from a report by the Independent Monitoring Commission.

In response, the Prime Minister commented “I believe this will provide reassurance and hope for everybody”. (to read the story on BBC news, click this link)

We’ve had claims of success, failures spun to give the impression of success – even success snatched from failure, and outright claims that failure never actually occured in the first place.

But this has to be the first time Gordon Brown has made headlines because nothing has actually happened.

Perhaps tomorrow’s headlines will proclaim the Chancellor’s skills because there hasn’t been another Northern Rock?
