Star letter of the day:
Why is it that every time a member of the coalition speaks they repeat the mantra "Gordon Brown wrecked the economy"? Either our former PM was omnipotent – managing to wreck the economies of Iceland, Greece, Ireland, and three-quarters of the rest of the world in one fell swoop, or this is simply not true. Could it be greedy and self-seeking financial institutions that wrecked the economy? The ones which continue to pay obscene bonuses, to fund the Conservative party (50% of all its funds from the City), and who continue to avoid tax to such staggering levels that if just one of them paid the correct level of tax (Barclays), it would cover 60% of the alleged level of benefit fraud that this government is so keen on confronting.
