Well, Gordan Brown is not weak. He is a fighter and a survivor. His main problem is whether those policies which he has ammounced earlier would benefit the people. It was mentioned in the news that up to 14000 jobs are unavailable to the public since the starting of the year and house prices are falling and will continue to fall due to the unavailability of loans from the bank to lend money to the public to buy houses. Surveyors and real estate agents are calling for a change in the way how bank works to ease the financial burdon of the public. Gordan Brown stepped in to introduce some counter measures to ease the crisis by allowing Bank of England to provide up to £50 billion to financial institutions. The problem is that with the £50 billion, it does not really help them. I have no idea why but Mervyn King of Bank of England stated that it is a crunch time now, a bumpy ride for many and it is true. What is happening in USA will somehow affect UK. The solution is whether the government is able to sail through the economic crisis and avoid recession is another matter.
Many people arer sought to buying goods online and not on High Street stores as it is relatively cheaper to purchase goods online. However, there are many difficulties if you buy goods online and it does not work. One would have to send back the goods to the company where else if you have purchased a goods on High Street, you can simply return the good(s) to the store. That is the premium price which you need to pay but I think it is worth it sometimes.
Anyway, I really do hope that Gordan Brown will sail through this time.
