Former Gordon Brown special advisor Damien McBride has issued a stark warning to his 14,000 Twitter followers on the back of Black Monday.

Heralding the end times (or more accurately a “looming crash”) McBride issued a number of forlorn tweets.

The panicked tweets implied the coming crash would be 20 times larger than that in 2008.

Panic ensued.

News of the upcoming China crash and resulting global financial apocalypse is pending.
