Anyone Speak Broon?

Writing in the bastion of intellectualism and investigative journalism that is the News of the World, Gordon Brown has said:

"[I am] under no illusions that repayment will not necessarily be sufficient sanction".

Can someone please tell me what on earth that means? Doesn't the inclusion of 'not' make it mean the opposite of what he means to say - that repayment alone is not going far enough?

I think that it may have something to do with paddles and creeks, but I'm not entirely sure.
