For ten years Gordon Brown has been mouthing the phrase “no return to boom and bust”. Now we see it is meaningless. Darling in his Mansion House speech in June also brushed off the threat of recession, asserting that “our economy will continue to grow.” But there has been a boom and it has turned to bust. Brown and Darling are denying what is going on in the real world before their eyes. They can’t do anything about the recession since they are not prepared to act against the source of the problem, the capitalist system. More and more people will begin to see that if the only way we can control the economic system and make it work in our interests is if we own it.
