Bush And Britain
It was announced a few days ago that President Bush will be meeting with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, for help in dealing with the terrible financial crisis that has hit America.
Brown should be careful in following Bush on such matters. It’s one thing to work with Congress, which would be the better solution, as it’s quite another to work with Bush, who has shown himself to be very dishonest in very important matters, such as the costly war in Iraq and public declarations he made about Iran, which a later released government report refuted.
It is my hope that he will not utilize the same blind allegiance Tony Blair did that got Britain involved in the war, which has turned out to be disastrous.
Mr. Brown needs to act in the best interest of the British people, not a corrupt president that’s on his way out and into the history books as the worst ever. One should be careful following Bush’s lead, as that could mean a second economy down the drain. Mr. Brown would be better off speaking with Congress.
Bush and Brown in push to deal with crisis
Published: March 30 2008 22:01 | Last updated: March 30 2008 22:01 – George W. Bush, US president, and Gordon Brown, UK prime minister, have agreed to step up co-operation over the crisis in financial markets. They are setting up a joint working group which will develop plans to monitor and regulate the banking system.
At the heart of the proposals, agreed on Wednesday by Hank Paulson, US Treasury secretary, and Alistair Darling, UK chancellor, is the creation of a body made up of senior Treasury and regulatory figures from London and Washington. http://www.ft.com
