Gordon Brown comes under attack from German ministers

Gordon Brown has today come under serious attack from his German counterparts as questions are asked about his ongoing economic rescue plan. The German minister Peer Steinbruck has today called the UK rescue plan ineffective and cast doubt on Gordon Brown's economic prowess. Quite what the German minister plans to do with his own economy is unclear as is the reason why Gordon Brown has been attacked in such an open manner.

It may well be that Gordon Brown's rising stock in the European Union has upset the German government who had until a few weeks ago been the major player in the EU. The French and UK coalition seems to have grabbed the top chair at the EU table and there appears to be some infighting amongst many of the larger and more forceful players in the EU.

It will be interesting to see what alternatives the German government put forward in the short term both for their own economy and the EU economy as a whole. So far the response of the UK government has been neutered although there have been murmurings that the German government will "move down the same path in due course".
