Gordon Brown was in the East of England this week to explain our plan for Real Help Now. The PM sets out the three key steps we’ve taken; to save the banks – and our bank accounts; to give our economy a shot in the arm and deliver real help now; and third, to expand lending. This week, our work on “step three” took a big leap forward with deals agreed with Northern Rock and Royal Bank of Scotland to boost lending by some £39 billion. But, we are very clear, that regional and national action, has to be backed by global co-ordination. That’ll be centre-stage when Gordon meets President Obama, and speaks to both House of Congress next week.
