Gordon Brown pleads for optimism from the UK public

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Gordon Brown has today pleaded for the UK population to remain optimistic about the future of the UK economy. However, many of the UK population are finding it very difficult to look ahead with optimism with the worsening economic situation, the increasing number of repossessions and unemployment forecast to reach 3 million. So what have we really got to be optimistic about?

There is no doubt the UK has suffered more than the vast majority of economies around the world but historically the UK has a very strong backbone and will bounce back at some stage. One element which is working against Gordon Brown is the fact that he has spent billions upon billions of taxpayer's money on various bailouts and liquidity programs, and is now pleading for the UK population to remain optimistic. With UK taxes set to increase by over £20 billion a year in the short to medium term it would seem as though taxpayers across the country will be under severe financial pressure for some time to come.

Gordon Brown is fast running out of options as the countdown to the next general election gathers pace and the opposition parties are surrounding the UK government wagons looking for weakness.
