WHAT GORDON BROWN COULD HAVE DONE WITH £8.5BN
Gordon Brown happily signed the cheques for the Iraq war. In2005 he said, "I would have behaved exactly like Tony over thewar."As Chancellor of the Exchequer, Brown was the paymastergeneral for the Iraq war. Instead of spending £8.5 billion onmass slaughter of Iraqis, Brown could have funded:
* The recruitment and retention of over 25,000 new teachersfor ten years.* All NHS maternity care for four years.
* All NHS Accident and Emergency provision for four and a halfyears.
* All government spending on the railways for five years.(SEE http://bit.ly/avwT4v) But not content with this astronomical waste, Brown is nowspending sums on the war in Afghanistan which -- at £12billion and rising fast -- dwarf his Iraq spending. (SEEhttp://bit.ly/4bRSM)
