He must be spinning in his grave

This is John Maynard Keynes, the great economist, whose most famous put down may have been, "When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, Sir?"

Of course, if he'd been talking to the Gordian Twat the reply would have been, "Not me. I just keep spending. When you're in a hole, carry on digging".

I have been astounded in the last week by seeing Brown wandering around the world at my expense giving lectures on what must be done; and even more astounded that his audiences, instead of laughing fit to bust, courteously pay attention.

Getting this man to advise you on economics is like selecting the village idiot as Lord Mayor.
