    Gordon Brown tipped for IMF job


    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/3534933.stm


    "Chancellor Gordon Brown has said he wants to tackle global poverty
    The decision by the chief of the International Monetary Fund to quit has sparked rumours that UK Chancellor Gordon Brown could replace him.
    The Treasury said the story - in the Guardian - was just "speculation", and that it was too early to comment.

    Mr Brown's name is just one of several bandied around following IMF Managing Director Horst Koehler's decision to resign a year ahead of schedule. "

    i'm not sure, depends on his desire to help cut world debt etc or to hopefully become prime minister

    Maybe. If he doesn't think he's got a chance at the PM job at some point soon, he may decide to leave.
    But he's one of the few people in the government who has done a reasonably good job, so it would be bad for labour if he did.

    Being linked with the IMF job will enhance his prospect of becoming PM. He won't take the IMF job but it will signal to TB that he is a wanted man who's still adamant on becoming PM one day - and I'm sure he will after we win the next election.

    I am 90% sure he will NOT take the IMF job, he has too many ambitions in this country.

    The IMF is an evil organisation that is doing more harm than good at the minute.
    Maybe Gorden brown wants to go cos he really wants to improve the situation, but I think he's going for the power and the money which really isn't a good start.
