England today feels disjointed, scrappy, rudderless, and destined for failure. And that’s not just a review of Fabio Capello’s England squad and their chances against Slovenia tomorrow, I mean the wider British economy.

Let’s just recap how we got to the situation where a new government has had to call an ‘emergency’ budget within fifty days of taking office. The wealthy nations of the world enjoyed a house-price bubble, which was boosted by mortgage lending from a global financial market that endlessly found ways to speculate on the incessant growth in property value. Our leaders sat back and basked in the reflected glow of their light touch.

A pensioner, Gillian Duffy, complained to Gordon Brown about the number of immigrants coming into the UK – amongst other things. It’s a familiar complaint the prime minister will have heard many times before, but this time he made a private comment about her in his car just after the event – calling her a ‘bigoted woman’ – and Sky News had left their radio microphone on his suit … so the private comments were recorded and replayed to the world.
