Cos Gordon Brown came up with a novel rescue plan for the banks of the UK, where he buys a stake in the company to bail them out to the tune of £50bn. The rest of the world has followed his example in the credit crunch by doing the same to their banks. The US has taken £250bn of its £700bn rescue package to do the same (they were originally gonna just buy the bad debts of these banks, til Gordon came along)
So what do you think? Is Gordon Brown the savior of the world, or you still gonna vote for cameron?
