Brown 'confused' over oil prices

So it takes Opec to hit back over Brown's ludicrous claims today on oil prices.

Mr El-Badri, Opec's secretary general, told the BBC the UK had benefited more than most countries from high oil prices because its taxes on petrol and oil extraction were the "highest in Europe".

"Instead of looking at Opec he should look at his policies and try to reduce taxes," he told the World at One. "Then he can talk to us."

Again where are the Tories on this.  Why does it take someone from Opec to make these sensible if obvious comments.

If The Tories do not start  instant rebuttals every time Brown makes the headlines, the election is going to be a one horse race.
