Gordon Brown in Europe

Life and Work of Gordon Brown (1951-)

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes gordon brown (1951-) in the following terms: [1] Chancellor of the Exchequer since Labour’s 1997 election victory, Gordon Brown gave independent control of interest rates to the Bank of England and designed a special set of criteria – derided by some as being incapable of objective verification – to determine whether conditions were right for Britain to adopt the euro. In 1999 he showed himself willing to be isolated in the EU by his sturdy defence of the City against the threatened imposition of a Community-wide withholding tax.
