"I want to get on with the job I'm doing. My priority is to help people in this country. I believe we are making progress by putting in place all the measures that are necessary." said Gordon Brown.
"The Prime Minister is pinning his political future on agreeing a global response to the crisis with the G20 group of world leaders at a London summit at the start of that month. He is also considering possible tax cutting measures in the Budget later in April as a way of stimulating the economy and boosting his popularity. The high-risk strategy adds to the pressure on Mr Brown who is currently 20 points behind in the polls."
"Economy could begin to recover in April, claims Gordon Brown."
Compare and contrast these three statements. Is he: (a)firmly committed to helping people in this country; (b)protecting his political arse; (c) talking bollocks?
