Can the hon. Gentleman reflect on this for a moment? We are about to have a meeting of G20 leaders in the UK, at the instigation of the Prime Minister, with an agenda to try to tackle globally the current downturn. Does the hon. Gentleman really think that the British people think that he has the gravitas to achieve that sort of meeting and the coming together of minds to try to deal with this? Does he really think that people would listen to him given the several positions that he has held on many major issues over the past 12 months?

Lets face it - neither Labour who were in control or the Tories saw this recession coming. Labour has added significantly to the way it has affect our economy and the Tories didn't do their job by warning parliament.

They are both as bad as each other. Neither Party has a member with the required moral gravitas.
