Cameron: "At last - I've got somebody to blame"

And with one bound he was free!

Cameron seems to be pinning a lot on the stupidity and xenophobia of Joe Public.

1. Well I suppose......
....that if I were to go for a Bulldog style puerile blame game in return I would point out that Gordon Brown was equally happy blaming economic troubles on the global crisis rather then his own policies and that he would almost certainly be using the same argument if he were still in power.

Things are in a bad way at the moment economy wise and it's only going to get worse. It feels to me a bit like late 2008 when the banks were going under right now, and that is not a good thing.

2. Cameron: IMF funding boost will not risk UK money
David Cameron has said increasing UK contributions to the International Monetary Fund "does not put Britain's taxpayers' money at risk".

The PM said it was "in our interests" to support the IMF but stressed again that the money would not support a eurozone bailout.

He also suggested any increase would not be put to a vote in the Commons.

Labour's Ed Balls said the IMF should not be called in to do the job of the European Central Bank.

3. Actually there is a kernel of truth in it
Of course, he's benefitting from the media presenting it as All the Fault of Johnny Foreigner; but in more general terms, it's true that we are affected by the wider economic crisis. Even within this context, the government is making things much worse by its obsession with cuts; but I'd rather see them blame All That Mess with the Euro, than blame Labour and Its Overspending and That Just Proves that Cuts are a Good Thing.
