Be careful what you ask for because you may get it.

I still have a copy of the ‘Red Guide to Scotland’ edited by Gordon Brown before he entered Parliament. It shows that, even in those days, he was wrong about almost every economic issue and has continued to be equally misguided through the past 13 years. There is something of a Greek tragedy about this awkward man who chased the dream of supreme political power with total self-absorption and ruthless dedication. Sadly when he finally reached his goal, as witnessed from his years in office and his ideas-free election manifesto, he did not have a clue what to do with that power. I suspect the verdict of history will be that he was the worst Prime Minister since Lord North and by a clear margin the worst Chancellor ever.
