I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. In view of what he has just said about the fiscal rules and borrowing, is he seriously telling the House and the country that the problems of America, Europe and Asia are down to the changes that have taken place in Britain over recent months? Has he completely lost his marbles, or does he really believe his own rhetoric—that changes in our economy have been responsible for the financial crisis across the world?
