    Global new deal 'possible' in months

    Global new deal 'possible' in months

    WASHINGTON (AFP) Prime Minister Gordon Brown raised the prospect of a global "new deal" to fix the finance industry within months, setting the stage for April's G-20 economic summit with President Barack Obama.

    Brown, taking a welcome break from political problems back home, claimed his prize as the first European leader to meet Obama in the Oval Office, and won a statement from the US leader that US-Britain ties were unbreakable.

    Obama agreed the world needed to work collectively to head off future financial crises, but did not give a specific, public endorsement of Brown's calls for a sweeping new global regulatory framework.

    Brown, who will on Wednesday give a showpiece address to a joint session of the US Congress, also called for an overhaul of global financial institutions and a drive for a new green, globalized economy.

    "Look, there is the possibility in the next few months of a global new deal that will involve all the countries of the world in sorting out and cleaning up the banking system," Brown told reporters in the Oval Office.....

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yep, Dumb & Dumber are in charge now, and they've turned on the huge neon sign telling the world to come get their free handouts.
