Can Britain really become a beacon of hope for the future?

When Gordon Brown stood up to proclaim the UK as a potential "beacon of hope" for the global turmoil of the worldwide slowdown there were few who followed his train of thought and many ridiculed him at the time. While we have yet to see any signs of a meaningful recovery in the economy Gordon Brown would appear to be hopeful for 2009 although this does place him at odds with many so-called experts on the UK economy.

As we have covered on a number of occasions, if Gordon Brown can succeed where many have failed, and bring around the recovery in the UK economy quicker than many experts are predicting, he stands a great chance of re-election at the next general election. However, it must be said that the odds are very much stacked against Gordon Brown with the UK government budget increasing, tax income slowing considerably and unemployment starting to reach worrying levels.

While there are many fans of Gordon Brown's economic prowess he has taken some substantial risks over the last few months with enormous amounts of taxpayers money. As taxpayers continue to toil under the pressure of reduced incomes and potential job insecurities he needs to start delivering on his promises in early 2009.
