Gordonomics. Keep Dipping Into A Dry Well.


Gordon Brown wants to set up a £60bn annual fund to help poor countries deal with climate change.

He hopes it will break the deadlock over who will pay developing nations to adapt to the changing climate and who will help them obtain clean technology.

Countries must reach a binding global agreement on carbon emission cuts at December's Copenhagen summit, he said.

The summit is seen as the last chance to negotiate a successor to the Kyoto agreement, which expires in 2012.

Environment and anti-poverty campaigners welcomed Mr Brown's remarks but said he and other leaders must deliver real financial support not merely "empty rhetoric".

And Now For The Truth. Albeit with a modicum of added BBC spin.

A cabinet minister has said cuts in public spending will be unavoidable after the next general election.

Environment Secretary Hilary Benn told BBC Radio 4's Any Questions ministers would face some tough decisions.

Mr Benn conceded his own Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs was facing future cuts and would have to prioritise where it spent money.

The disclosure comes with Labour and the Conservatives immersed in a dispute over spending plans.

  2. The man's obsessed with saving the world with British taxpayers' money. So far the only memorable 'legacy' of his tenure is mosquito nets to Africa. Brown's down-and-out - he just won't do the decent thing, yet.

  4. I'm with Gigits on this - charity begins at home,Gordon you fuckwitted maniac! Besides, the delusion that we can actually do anything about global warming is like Don Quixote charging at windmills all over again - it's a joke if it wasn't so damned taxing in the process!
    The sun will do exactly what it wants to do whether Brown likes it or not.
