Alistair Darling is doing a very good impression of someone completely incompetent.
His article in the Guardian at the weekend, saw him doing a very good impression of Cpl Frazer and could have easily been titled "We're doomed!". He managed to single handedly drive down the Pound and take a big step towards a self fulfilling prophesy. As my good friend and colleague Dan Matthews said "do be quiet Mr Darling".
I have yet to see a single decision that Darling has made or a single action that has not resulted in a cock-up. I hope this is all an act, I hope that Darling will have a Prince Hal moment because the alternative is too ghastly to contemplate. An incompetent PM with and incompetent Chancellor. God help us!
