Such is the headline to a BBC report, according to that sage of the political world, Nick Robinson - he with the glorious title of BBC Political Editor - aka another 'journalist'.
Gordon Brown can 'talk' - actually say something interesting? Oh yes, he can, because he said this:
"Well, I've never been someone who myself has been interested in running up personal debts or borrowing huge amounts of money."
Just for once the man has spoken the truth - I mean, one point how many trillion wasn't his money, was it?
