Brown's rising stock
There is no doubt that Gordon Brown's stock has risen greatly as a result of his decisive action in the financial crisis. Being abroad and relying more on international news outlets makes this abundantly clear. Today's announcement by President Bush shows that Brown's solution of government buying stock in the banks is the preferred US option too. After a good conference speech and a strong reshuffle, it can surely only be a matter of time before the polls properly reflect this reinvigorated leadership.
