Bottler Brown (and sidekick Dobbin Darling) – the maddest, baddest man in town
In a last desperate throw of the dice, “Bottler” Brown orders the Bank of England to start printing money.
The bank bailout failed.
Dramatic interest rate cuts failed.
Six key policies claimed to be able to save the world were announced in December and have yet to be implemented.
Rushing round like a headless chicken failed.
Bullying smaller countries failed.
Sucking up to bankers failed.
Attacking bankers failed.
Claiming to be seeing “green shoots” of recovery failed.
So now its down to the last resort of banana republics – rolling the printing presses.
