Cameron explicitly said at PMQs what Guido thinks, in the “bunker” they are bonkers, barking out orders for schemes that never happen. Gordon actually claimed at one point during PMQs that Germany had “left the mainstream” of economic thinking. That would be Germany, with the biggest economy in Europe and a centrist coalition government.
Delusional and in denial are inadequate terms to describe Gordon’s state of mind. He is completely disconnected from the reality of the situation, that makes it impossible for him to get us out of this mess.
Don’t just take Guido’s word for it, Brian Wilson, a former government minister with across the board experience in a number of departments has just written this; “Brown was clearly deluding himself this week with his overblown invocations of Churchillian resolve to counter the turbulent economic times in which we live.” In private more and more Labour people are completely despondent.
