Actually, I have to tell the truth. Gordon will be visiting none of the above. You see, he's not visiting any of the places hit by this recession. Oh no. He's visiting the Labour strongholds hit by the last recession. As the Mail says:
The ‘recession recce’ will take in the East Midlands, the North West, the Midlands, the South West and Wales, all of which were badly hit by unemployment in the early Eighties. The visit to some of the areas worst hit in previous slumps comes amid reports that the Prime Minister is considering a second bail-out for banks after the first £37 billion package of taxpayers’ money failed.Now to many people this may sound like party electioneering at the public expense.
And many people may consider that Cameron would be perfectly justified in dispatching his own front bench at public expense to visit the people who will really be bearing the brunt of Brown's economic folly. So how about it, Dave?
