I'm right, you know …

You’re Wrong! You’re All Wrong I Tell You!

This just in from our correspondent in cloud cuckoo land (a.k.a. the Number 10 bunker):

Mr Brown says … that it is “simply not true” that tough years lie ahead.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the Prime Minister insists that he is optimistic about the future and predicts strong growth over the next 12 months.

“If you have a growth policy for Britain, get unemployment down, get the economy moving forward, then Britain can have upgrowth,” he says.

His remarks will surprise many economic experts, whose growth forecasts are far less optimistic. He is also likely to face Tory claims that he is failing to be “honest” with the public.

“Upgrowth”? Is that, like, the opposite of “negative growth”? Doubleplusgood then!

Whatever Gordon Brown is on*, can I have some?

In the meantime, I have an appointment with a roll of draught excluder.
