Gordon Brown Gets A Right Kicking John Humphrys interview on Today

that'll be right, then.
I heard the bit when GB defended UK productivity by saying what a huge number of small businesses are in business since 1997. Does this stack up or make any sense ?

He would not rule out tax rises when specifically asked, so you can be VERY sure they're coming along soon.
GB is a lying knob. We know it, JH knows it. Do you listen to him or use your own eyes/ears ?

No start ups are sharply down. And IR35 plus a raft of other legislation seems to have been purposefully designed to prevent business startups.

He couldn't really say anything else, though, could he? You don't know what he actually thinks,

He probably thinks the same thing - a form of self delusion and self-righteousness. Tony Blair, for example, most likely thinks he is doing us all a favour and sincerely thinks he is doing the right thing in Iraq.

You cannot help but think Humphrys was enjoying this a little more than usual - a little pay-back for the recent NuLab backed public wrist-slapping he endured?
