Ask The Boss: The Chancellor Of The Exchequer, Alistair Darling

Recommended Posts

http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/busi...icle6774598.ece

In the latest in The Times’ Ask the Boss series, Alistair Darling, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, has agreed to answer your questions.

You can ask the Chancellor anything you like. Does he believe Britain will emerge from recession this year? Can Labour recalibrate its strategy at the last party conference before a general election? Can anything really be done to curb bankers’ bonuses?

Send The Times your question using the form below by Friday, September 11.

We will then select the best questions, put them to Mr Darling and will publish the Chancellor’s answers on Friday, September 18.

Ask and be ignored the times because they won't ask anything difficult or enjoy the waffling non response from Darling about how they are doing the right thing.

Dear Alastair

Q1. Given the latest OECD pronouncements of the UK staying in recession after others leave, are we still best placed to weather this storm?

Q2. Do you think anyone apart from the BoE with their funny money will ever buy UK government debt again?

Q3. Does it hurt when you keep your face rigid when sat behind that fat mentalist as he disgraces himself and the country every PMQs?

Dear Alistair, if we used a time machine to send you back to 1997 to warn the government of the current crisis, which policies would you recommend they pursue?

At what stage was it decided to submit to moral hazard?

Given that middle aged first time buyers are still finding finance costs a significant problem in getting a foot on the ladder, when will the government be issueing mortgages fixed for 10 years at the current boe base rate for 95% ltv? Perhaps the BOE could reopen its retail wing?

Once the good people of this country wake up to what you and your government have done with their futures and those of their children, would you like your head on a spike in trafalgar square, outside the house of commons, or outside the bank of england next to mervyn king's?

Q1: How difficult has it been taking over from the worst Chancellor in history?

Q2: At your current rate how long do you believe it will take for you to have an even worse record as Chancellor than Gordon.

Q3: Do Gordon and yourself enjoy shafting the general public or are you both really that stupid?

edit: spelling
