Good things rarely happen in the world of Searching Finance, making Sunday a bit special.

 

Because, you see, The Observer chose William Keegan's ''Saving the World"? Gordon Brown Reconsidered as its paperback of the week.

 

Reviewer Chris Mullins, noted that:

 

About a year after the near meltdown of the global financial system in the autumn of 2008, BBC2 ran a three-part documentary on the subject.


One after another, European and American politicians, bankers and other members of the global elite lined up to pay tribute to the starring role that Gordon Brown had played in averting catastrophe. "Why is this a secret?" I remember thinking at the time. "How come foreigners know about this and we don't?"

 

To read the whole review goto:

Judging by the comments underneath the Mullins review, Gordon Brown still has many implacable opponents, but nonetheless a fightback of sorts starts here.
