Brown slips from recession to depression

Gordon Brown was accused last night of hiding the true scale of Britain's economic crisis after he said in the House of Commons that there was a global "depression", rather than a recession.

"We should agree... on a monetary and fiscal stimulus that will take the world out of depression," he told David Cameron.
