In Day To Day Terms What Does Darling Mean?

Recommended Posts

This is being bandied about in the press

Alistair Darling today warned the whole economy will collapse if his bailout of the banking system fails.

What exactly, for your man on the street, does this mean? Would I need to buy a tin hat and a potato plant?

1. The economy hasn't collapsed, reinforcing that darling is good

2. This is HIS plan, not labours

3. Failure is possible but he is the best man to solve the problems.

It means the entire economy has already collapsed, GDP has gone off a cliff and Darling is busy papering over cracks.

The past 10 years of growth is going to be shattered for the illusion it was. This has been the biggest con trick ever.

You're either with us or against us.

This is the only option to save the economy so don't consider criticising it.

He's trying to get as much support for his plan as possible by suggesting the consequences of failure are unthinkable.

The consequences of another Labour term are also unthinkable.

Not sure which bailout he means,,, was it the one for 50bn last March, or the 200bn in October, or the whatver bn this week, and the whatever bn next month.

Either way the votes are cast.

he is treating this thing like an election. All the votes are cast and the winner in reality is decided already.. the press treat it like its a race. I can understanf their frustration at the total obfuscation by the banks, BUT, Darling is the Government rep and its THEY who make the laws.

At some point soon in the UK/US/eurozone either people will go to withdraw their money from the bank at the end of the month and it won't be there, or they will succeed and it will be worthless due to inflation. This basically means that state workers (and everyone else) are not going to get paid.

The tertiary functions of the state - roads, police protection (i.e. the stuff they do to provide excuses for taxing everyone) hospitals, schools, welfare, benefits......this kind of stuff is going to have it's funding curtailed, stopped altogether or stolen by insiders.

And so those services will break down. But not as badly as one might think because it is the case that a lot of well meaning and indeed hardworking people are in those sectors. In extremis some nurses, teachers, policemen, doctors etc will roll in to work for free.

But not for long and not without a lot of shouting. The good news is that people actually want those things, so there will always be a market for them and always be a way of acquiring at least some measure of them.
