Cameron and Osborne disagree over economic policy

David Cameron in the News of the World today had a pop at Brown/Darling and their international travel to discuss economic matters:

People need help . . . and they need it fast. They want to know politicians are on their side—not the other side of the world.

But on the very same day that David Cameron was attacking people making international journeys to discuss economic issues with other countries, George Osborne on the Financial Times website was calling for plenty of just that, with his list of demands for better international action:

I am sure all will agree that greater international co-operation is needed…
international regulation must be improved…
the position of the IMF [International Monetary Fund] must be strengthened…
we need proper regulation of areas of the global financial system that have gone, in effect, unregulated.
