Could the credit crunch actually save Gordon Brown's political career?

As we head towards the UK general election, which many believe will be a landslide victory for the Conservative party, there is a chance that the UK economy could well recover prior to the election date. In a bizarre quirk of fate it may well be that the low points reached after the credit crunch and the UK recession may well give Gordon Brown his best chance of victory at the next election.

If the UK economy does recover prior to the election date then Gordon Brown will be seen to have navigated the UK through what has been the worst recession in living history. However, the credit crunch will also mask a number of problems and issues which arose when Gordon Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer and later prime minister. Many people believe that Gordon Brown severely weakened the UK economy during his time in office by introducing more and more taxation, both direct and indirect, and also taxing pension funds.

How ironic that potentially the worst recession in living history could mask all of the issues which Gordon Brown has attracted over the years and see him come out as some kind of hero and champion of the economy.
