Leading Britain through a global crisis

Mark has welcomed the action taken by the government to limit the impact of the global financial crisis on the UK.

He said: “Analysts and commentators of all political persuasions agree the Prime Minister and Chancellor have taken the initiative in this global crisis.

“Their swift, decisive and bold actions will stand Britain in a far better position than most other market economies. The banking package announced this week follows the rescue of Bradford & Bingley and Northern Rock. Had any other party been in power at this moment in time those banks would have gone to the wall and the crisis in Britain would have been far worse.”
