"The situation is serious.Howeverwe were here before.Many of thekey facts are not as bad as they werein the 1980s. Then four or five years of good FF Govt. brought us into clear water and an era of 15 years of growth. Together we can and must do the same again.You may feel my comparison with the1980s is not valid.Yes,there are differences,our banks were not in troublethen,neither did we have the same level of personal debt and I accept we do not have the option of currency devaluation.
