i think if Gordon Brown could pee streams of gold, he still wouldn’t be popular at the moment!
You are right but probably because he would just flush it staight down the pan. After a decade of growth (albiet artificial growth) what do we have to show for it? Public sector borrowing down? improved services? reduced crime? etc. Perhaps Gordon thinks to his self sometimes ” I wish the previous Chancellor had done a better job, I would make my job a lot easier now!!!!” 😉
