Gordon Brown refuses to apologise for recession

Gordon Brown is set to ignore an opportunity to apologise to the UK public during his speech to Congress. Despite a number of Labour MPs suggesting the time is right for the UK government to apologise for the debacle which is the UK economy it seems that Gordon Brown does not know the word "no". Many believe this could be the final nail his political coffin as the knives seem to be out within the Labour Party and many are stepping forward from the shadows.

Gordon Brown's high profile meeting with Barack Obama has also fallen into disarray with his time allowance with the president substantially reduced in an embarrassing rebuke for the PM. There is a suggestion that the UK authorities are paying the price for openly criticising the US rescue package and the move towards protectionism. While there were no comments at the time from the US government it is known that privately they were dismayed to see Gordon Brown openly questioning the policies of an overseas "friend".

What had been billed as Gordon Brown's great platform to return reinvigorated to the UK political scene now appears to be something of a washout and is being seen as a "non-event" by US observers.
