After years of intensive searching, a team of scientists believe that they have located the 'black box' at the heart of the Labour government during Gordon Brown's premiership from 2007 to 2010.
Recovering the black box will finally give important clues as to how the government crashed so spectacularly in financial and in popularity terms after years of economic prudence while Brown was chancellor, and ten years of steady and mostly popular Blair leadership.
How the country derailed so suddenly and so severely from the predetermined course has been a mystery for years. The crash investigation team has previously established from the available information only that there was a perilous ascent in government borrowing, a sudden shift to the left and then no further evidence of piloting of the country. At around the same time all communications were cut off, with the final words captured on Brown's microphone being "She was just a bigoted woman that said she used to be Labour".
