Doctors treating Alistair Darling said today that they feared he will never recover. He is already in the advanced stages of Bullshitisimus and there appears to be no hope.
Dr Andi Medix, of the Dennis Healey Foundation For Economic Crackpots said "The patient starts to see green shoots everywhere. Then they start to make ludicrous statements. Next thing you know they are trying to actually formulate policy. They also start to hand out other people's money to bankers."
Darling is thought to have caught this disease whilst hiding in Gordon Broon's cabinet. Already there have been a number of cases of Bullshitisimus as a result of Mr Broon's cabinet. Harriet Harmless has been identified as a carrier.
A similar outbreak in Tony B Liar's cabinet led to John Prescott being put in temporary charge. The nation as a whole suffered an extreme outbreak of Bullshitisimus as a result.
This disease is thought to be similar to Fuckeconomyous, which struck down Nigel Lawson and Geoffrey Howe in the 1980s.
