When I wrote that blog as part of my "Harriet in the High Street"— [Interruption.] When I wrote that blog, having talked to people in Princes street in Edinburgh, that is what people were saying to me. I acknowledge, and we readily acknowledge, that since then the situation internationally has become more turbulent and people's concerns are raised. We have to be ever vigilant and make sure that we keep the economy strong through difficult international times, in a way that the previous Conservative Government did not.

As far as the right hon. Gentleman's jokes are concerned, normally people used to say about him, "Great jokes, poor judgment", but I have to say that on today's performance, he should be worrying about his income as an after-dinner speaker.
