Green Shoots?

Recommended Posts

TBH I am getting so p*ssed off with the media pumping out pro Labour propaganda that I am almost beginning to hope that Labour win the next election.

Then we would REALLY crash and burn, perhaps that's what the British people actually deserve for voting in these b*stards 3 times.

A 4th Labour term, then CRASH AND BURN - perhaps that's what we actually need to get REAL change in this country.

:angry:

Worth a watch maybe - discussing whether there are green shoots. They have, ha ha, sent their environmental reporter to find out.

Newsnight did a cracking piece last week (Thursday or Friday maybe) with Paul Mason slating the mainstream media for their green shoots nonsense.

He decided to report a little deeper into the "statistics" that are indicating green shoots.

Is Paul a keen hillwalker? ;)

The thick Yorkshire accent could indicate a degree of knowledge in hill walking.

I trusted a Yorskhire woman once on eating pork pies and mushy peas - farted for Britain for a week afterwards. Cunning swine those Yorkies.

Looks like the Yorkie puddings not only have the inside knowledge on green shoots, but they also hold the key to the Environment too!

Cunning swine indeed.

I saw newsnight last week (could have been the same one) and Paul Mason summed up at the end saying we don't really know where the economy is going from here could get better or worse.

I then switched over and caught the weather forecast and they said we don't really know what its going to be like tommorrow.

I then started thinking to myself about the meaning of life itself, gave up then had a cuppa.

Paxman trying to goad Mandelslime to say 'green shoots'

Mandelslime waffling trying to be optimistic without actually being optimistic.

That red-headed lady talking about the benefits of having a little bust every now and then appears, IMPO, to not have grasped the current situation.

True.

Although I do agree that reducing the time between peaks and troughs in the economy is relatively stabilising over the long term.

Her relative bullishness ignored the fact that we have just had an almighty decade long boom, and as a corollary of her own opinon, we must now suffer the huge bust that follows.

PS, Back to Only Fools now methinks...

We are basically up sh*t creek without a paddle was the outcome, so nothing new. Worse state than Japanese as they had a high savings ratio when they started their meltdown.

Oh the HSBC economist guy had thought that house price falls had "bottomed out" but later thought the consumer was in too much debt :blink:

I liked the swany whistle sound effects to accompany the GDP projections, stockmarket and house prices. Who said the BBC is dumbing down?

Usual speil from Mandelson, I really want to punch him. :ph34r:

Liked the way the guy from GE Commerce (I think it was) laughed off house price stability when wages cant match prices.

Studio comments about as honest as you are going to get?

Trying to get these expert "clowns" to come out with a consistent message is as futile as trying to get a sensible opinion on Alan Shearer's tenure as Newcastle manager from his mates on MOTD.

Only this week we have heard that the "respected" Ernst and Young ITEM saw the first signs of stability and confidence returning.

Yes, the very same ITEM club that never saw this whole mess coming.
