yes i think he has done well too given the alternatives and what was left by the previous government. the only questionable things he has done is go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the mismanagement of interest rates. he needs to dress down gordon brown a bit for whacking up interest rates and thereby not helping the recession and causing a slump in the housing market. if eddie george was still governor of the bank of england and the monetary policy committee still had as much power, we would be in a completely different economic climate.
