DAVID Cameron has sparked fury after saying he may block Gordon Brown’s bid to head the International Monetary Fund.
He said it might be time to look to India, China and south Asia rather than Europe, where IMF chiefs usually come from.
Ex-Bank of England economist David Blanchflower said: “It is extremely small-minded and suggests Cameron can’t take criticism.
“It would certainly diminish Britain’s power in the world.”
French current IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is expected to stand down next year.
