The green shoots of recovery are hacked down

When Baroness Vadera inadvertently suggested she was seeing the "green shoots of recovery" in the UK the Business Minister and one of Gordon Brown's closest allies were severely criticised across the whole political spectrum. Opposition leaders took the chance to twist the knife claiming that the UK government was totally out of control and out of sync with the voters of the UK. While Gordon Brown has done his best to kill the story and reduce any potential damage, many people believe we have a government out of control and treating the UK population with contempt.

The green shoots of recovery quote would probably have received no press coverage had it not come from anybody else but the Business Minister and close ally of the Prime Minster. Trying to tell UK population that things are getting better when more and more homes are being repossessed, more jobs are being lost and yet more taxpayer's money is being lined up to save the banks is not a good idea.

This has somewhat blown apart Gordon Brown's "prudence" philosophy and yet again he has suffered at the hands of one of his ministers. With a general election due in 2010 the government and the opposition parties can little afford any more serious gaffes.
