This is an extract from Gordon's speech - it was rather good, I think - mind you I wrote most of it.
"This is the day that the world came together to ask for Uncle's help in our fight back against a global recession - not with words but with Uncle's plan for global recovery and for reform and with his clear timetable for its delivery.
The old Washington consensus is over. Today we have agreed on the Homeward consensus, that we take Uncle's advice for global action to deal with the problems we face, that we will do whatever he says is necessary to restore growth in jobs, that we will take elephantine action to rebuild confidence and trust in our financial system.
To prevent a crisis such as this ever happening again we will follow Uncle's golden rules. We accept that he is right - we have been incredibly silly and very greedy. From now on we we will try and be upstanding citizens - accepting that we have to work hard and be responsible."
