VOICE OF THE DAILY Mirror: It's crunch time, Gord.

US officials taking control of America's collapsing mortgage giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is multi-billiondollar proof that the credit crunch is still biting hard.

The pair account for half of US home loans and their troubles make our own Northern Rock's disaster look like small fry.

It is against this bleak global financial outlook that the Prime Minister struggles to reassert his authority in Britain.

But with trade unions threatening to unleash a wave of public sector strikes and the record 21 per cent hike in food prices calculated by the Daily Mirror, he has a lot of work to do.

Gordon Brown takes his Cabinet to Birmingham today where he will vow to be "resolute" in getting the Labour Government and the country back on track.

He is certainly resilient but the PM must also be bold if he is going to roll back the Conservatives, who are enjoying an easy ride.

If the Prime Minister gets his policies right and demonstrates he is on the voters' side, they will return to Labour.

Over to you, Mr Brown.
