Eric Pickles Says We Must Never Become Dependent On

Recommended Posts

one of the toughest challenges we face is the way to rebuild our fragile economy. Let’s start with what not to do. We cannot ever again become so dependent on one industry, or reliant on an over-inflated housing bubble.

Er, what do you mean 'never again'? We haven't even begun (or even attempted to begin) to wean ourselves off the last one yet :rolleyes:

Didn't Gordon say something similar in 1997?

'I will not let house prices get out of controle' and 'no more boom and bust' are I think the Gordon Brown quotes you are thinking of.

Eric Pickles is turning out to be a bit of a star isn't he.

Gordon Browns great for these little pearls of wisdom.

A weak pound means a weak economy means a weak government was one of my favourites, dating from 1994, i think.

Promises promises and for more promises the Labour leader candidates have just finished on BBC2.

Playacting and make believe and more promises.

As he says

So, as I’ve written before on ConHome,..................

ConHome - how apt.

Exactly. They've already started twisting.

Same old stuff it's just being spouted by different people under a different label.

In 2025, during the next boom, there will be plenty of reason why "this time it's different".
