Even Polish Leader Piling on UK for Wreckless Spending

Donald Tusk, Prime Minister of the historical bastion of economic and personal freedom in Europe - Poland - told Gordon Brown that he can't spend his way out of the UK's economic downturn.

"All I can say is that the Polish government, at a time of financial crisis, behaved with full responsibility in terms of public funds and the level of budgetary deficit," said Tusk.  "The assumption that we adopted as the method to fight against the financial crisis is not to multiply expenditures but rather to increase responsibility for public funds," he said.

What a novel assumption Tusk makes - one that could only come from a country that was mired in communism for much of the 20th century.  And so one of the largest trends in economics continues - that of communist or formerly communist nations teaching Anglo Saxon countries how capitalism actually works

Tusk is not alone in laying the smackdown on Gordon Brown - if you haven't seen it already, check out this video of Conservative Brit Daniel Hannan laying the smack down on Brown.
