The Prime Minister gave a stark warning that a fresh global economic disaster could be looming.

Following the G20 gathering of international leaders in Brisbane, he said “red warning lights are once again flashing on the dashboard of the global economy”.

In a bleak assessment of the international economic picture, Mr Cameron used an article in a national newspaper to claim there is a “dangerous backdrop of instability and uncertainty” along with diplomatic, humanitarian and economic problems around the world.

He highlighted a growing crisis in the eurozone again, where countries are facing a new financial meltdown and the economy is slowing, and which he said is “on the brink of recession”.
