If there was a clearer example of "private profits, public losses" - we all have to pull together now. It's all of our responsibilities.
The recession is a test of character the British people must pass, Gordon Brown is set to say.

In next week's New Year message, the prime minister is expected to urge the public to "display the same spirit" as their predecessors did in World War II...

And Mr Brown will demand that the public work together in an effort to build a "better tomorrow".
Yeah, it's just like the Blitz - or, in fact, more like some sort of entirely inexplicable natural disaster which clearly has no connection to any policy or any profits made in the past decade or two. Oh okay, at a push we might vaguely refer to a few unnamed "bankers" or "hedge fund managers" being greedy in some way - nothing to do with the government of course.
