Brown Speech Live Now!

Recommended Posts

...but says that because of low interest rates & high employment, Labour have been able to sustain growth!

They have taken 'tough, long term decisions', apparently...how deluded can the man get?!

:lol:

High employment is not the same as low unemployment.

While the averages may look good it is not so good for the individual who has lost their job.

:lol:

He said any other decade a house price bubble like we had last year would have lead to recession implying that the MPC had managed the bubble.

Does he really think the bubble has gone away, the crash is only just getting going :huh:

Seems too coincidental coming straight after the Panorama airing.

Brown and the Beeb holding hands again? We are being prepared for something.

What is he on with.

Haven't got a tv so keep me updated.

Not before he is prime minister though and then he blames whoever took his role.

I dont think the city can be deluded as the labour supporters sitting there.

He says inflation is low (because he doesnt measure the things rapidly increasing)

He says high oil prices are sustainable (doubtful)

Unemployment is at an all time low (because they dont count all those on disability and other credits)

UK has survived whilst the world has suffered and UK year on year has grown (only because of huge increases in personal debt)

i would like to interview GB in a years time whilst watching this speech and see what he has to say then.

That actually annoys me quite abit, i mean is he permenantly dislocating his jaw to let the BS pass or what. The education secretary annoys me too, shes a carbon copy of brown.

I think Gordon honestly feels he can continue to spend his way out of this mess.

He can't keep expanding the public sector so he will expand the building sector.

What a weeze :lol:

Has anyone else noticed the rolling eyes of the some of the audience and how unmoved most of them look, me thinks Gordon is not as popular as he likes to think he is.

Was that it? Not exactly inspirational was it? He seemed to spend most of time attacking the Tories and sprouting meaningless statistics. It's all very well crowing that he's spending money on health, education etc but it's no good making promises if you can't pay for them.

1,000,000 new homes hmmmmm...

and with 100,000 people desperatly behind on mortage payments and increasing monthly at a huge rate..

For every 1 person who is seriously behind.. we have another 3 struggling badly...

Perhaps more..

Okay.. 2 years ago a two be flat in exeter was £180,000

at 3.5%

That is interest payments of

£6,300 a year

£525 a month.

Now at 4.9%

£8820 a year

£735 a month.

and that is interest only..

over £200 a month worse of.

Of course I was offered the same flats for £130,000

(including stamp duty and deposit paid.)

Which would mean yearly interest of

£6370

£530 a month..

anyone see a pattern...?

oh.. interest only.. capital repayments are higher against £180,000 then £130,000

Guest Time 2 raise Interest Rates

What a way to end a speech. That's the first time I've heard a Chancellor

finish his speech with a limerick. It was along the lines of:

Have you heard of that geezer called 'Blair',

Who I feel really couldn't much care

When the sh*t hits the fan

He'll be off for a tan

Leaving mayhem and total despair.

Nice one, Gordon.
