What Gordon Brown did next – former PM writing history of the banking crisis
"Seven weeks ago, Gordon Brown took the hand of his young son and, accompanied by the rest of his family, walked from Downing Street for the last time. Since then, while his wife Sarah has continued to Tweet enthusiastically, almost nothing has been seen or heard of the former PM.
"There was a visit to a school in his constituency, and last Thursday a solitary - and brief - appearance in the Commons. David Cameron criticised Brown for failing to appear in the Commons to defend the bankrupt state in which, in his view, his predecessor had left the country.
"But the economy still seems to be at the forefront of Brown's mind. He has been writing an account of the origins of the banking crisis, its implications for capitalism and, of course, his central role in trying to prevent the global recession turning into a much more profound depression."
