Financial bailouts? Crippled national economy? We'll leave that for the current pundits.
Instead, fast forward to April 2945, and New New Berlin is under attack from all sides (and, one presumes, the financial sector has also stopped functioning properly, but back to the military situation).
GünSchwarm units put up stubborn resistance in the final defence of their capital city, as Futurekom moves in for the kill. "Wotan", the schwere-wonderwaffen panzer, is blazing away to the bitter end. And the Schwarmbot has been activated, ready to go down fighting.
Meanwhile, Future Gordon Brown has entered the fray, sending a unit of Britz to find some advanced Gün technology before the Kommers get to it. Presumably this will be used to pay down the FutureBrtiz debt of 245 trillion Interstellar Pounds...
Can this man be stopped? We'll see tonight!
