Original Story on Gordon Brown From www.FT.com
Stock markets crumble and banks are brought to their knees, but as confidence leaches from the financial markets the crisis appears to be having a galvanising effect on at least one person: Gordon Brown.

The British prime minister’s poll ratings in recent weeks have risen almost as sharply as the FTSE 100 has fallen, halving the lead of the opposition Conservatives. The greater the anguish on the faces in City wine bars, the more serene Mr Brown appears to be. Something strange is happening in British politics.

Until the latest trauma hit the markets, the country appeared to have made up its mind about Mr Brown. Just over a year into the job, the 57-year-old leader was deemed to be uncharismatic, hapless and indecisive. He was taking Labour to certain electoral defeat in 2010 – unless he was toppled in a party coup first.

After a solid start, Mr Brown had transformed himself – in the wounding words of the Liberal Democrat politician Vince Cable – “from Stalin to Mr Bean”. After a week in the eye of the economic crisis, the time has come to ask: is the man of steel back?

This month Mr Brown has taken two decisions so extraordinarily bold they have forced the country to look at him with fresh eyes. The prime minister is trying to reinvent himself as the leader Britain turns to in a national emergency. Or as he puts it: “Serious people for serious times.”

The first act was to reshuffle his cabinet to strengthen its economic clout, including the jaw-dropping decision to bring back from Brussels the European Union trade commissioner, Peter Mandelson. Mr Brown despised Mr Mandelson – a close ally of Tony Blair – for the best part of a decade and the feeling was mutual. Mr Mandelson seemed as surprised as anyone to be invited to become Mr Brown’s business secretary. But the prime minister’s intent was clear: in a crisis, forget personal animosity and bring in the best people. Mr Mandelson’s appointment was in “the national interest”.

In case anyone missed the message, the prime minister simultaneously set up a National Economic Council – an echo of the body set up by Bill Clinton in the downturn of the early 1990s – to manage the worsening crisis. Mr Brown seems happy for this to be described as “a war cabinet”.
