German Finance Minister says Brown is leading Britain over a cliff

Thanks to Paul Waugh in the Evening Standard for this.

When everyone is telling us that Gordon Brown is like Moses leading us to the promised land it's sobering to hear that at least one of his international colleagues takes a contrary view.

Peer Steinbrueck says that the idea of hiking borrowing to pay for a fiscal stimulus is unacceptable..... "Just because all the lemmings have chosen the same path, it doesn't automatically make that path the right one."

No doubt Brown and his cronies will ignore him. But we won't!
UPDATE: Interesting that David Cameron used the same quote when replying to the Queen's speech today.
