Brown's fuel bluster

So, as if to make my point about the current government only caring about politics and getting re-elected, Brown is trying to grab headlines about reducing fuel prices.

He's spotted the oil price dropping and thinks he can make political capital out of it.

Today we have him banging on about prices at the pumps not dropping fast enough.

Could he be forgetting about the fact that oil is traded in pounds and thanks to the fiscal irresponsibility of his government the value of the pound has dropped from $2 to $1.6 due to the factored in risk that he's about to go on a further borrowing binge to buy himself the next election ?

I think the binge i not to buy himself the next election but to hand the Tories two decades in order to reverse the disaster.
