There's an old saying that, 'When the USA sneezes, we all catch cold.' Alistair Darling and Gordon Brown know that the USA is already in recession. They know that the financial crisis is causing the hatches to be battened down all over the world. But, they say, Britain is immune. They've even commissioned a Treasury report to try to prove it. Don't believe them. The chill winds of economic crisis are coming our way. The parallels between the US, which is already in the mire, and the UK are stark.
