Using bad weather as an excuse for poor economic figures

"Then we had a terrible month of weather which hindered transport and communications in business in the country.Obviously it has been a difficult few months. But that just shows just how fragile the recovery is."
Not the words of George Osborne that the Labour/BBC coalition have been attacking today as bad-timed and a poor excuse, but those of Gordon Brown in April 2010 blaming the then less than encouraging rise in growth on the snow rather than his own taxation policy.

I don't remember the BBC giving Gordon Brown a hard time last April but then there was an election to try and secure for Labour at that time!

Thanks to Guido Fawkes for the quotation spot.
