For years Gordo has been dismissing claims that Labour has overseen a decline in the rankings of the UK.
This election so far has been littered with blatant scare tactics and lies from the Labour Party over Conservative intentions.
So let me be the first to congratulate them, for once, for telling the truth about our global status in of all places, their last manifesto.
For those of you hard of eyesight it reads:
1997-2005: Britain, the fourth largest economy in the world, with the longest ever period of continuous growth
So post 2005, we were a) no longer the fourth largest economy in the world and
b) Stopped growing.
Well, honesty is refreshing sometimes.
