Imf Agree With George

Recommended Posts

Funny that, he sounded so assured of that this morning on Radio 4.

Then again i almost felt joy at his thinly hidden attack on the BBC for selective reporting.

Don't blame him. The BBC are d*cks:

Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has dismissed the International Monetary Fund's backing for the coalition's deficit reduction strategy.

Their bias is truly appalling. unsure.gif

These problems are only temporary and the next boom must be imminent - apparently

Remember yesterday's Observer, with those "top UK 'economists' " attacking Osborne's plan? Didn't they know the IMF would publicise an evaluation today?? They look very stupid now.

oh do come on...

they are all as ridiculously wrong as each other, how can anyone respect anything the IMF has to say, let alone a load of respected economists, none of them have a clue, they are strutting around like call girls on the sidewalk.

basically the economy is screwed, cut a bit, or maybe not, interests rates stay down or might go up, but whatever you do save the banks and the old boys club.

*****ers the lot of the them

The IMF were pleased things were going well.

The inflation was a lot more than forecast, and Growth, well, thats not as good as forecast, and the cuts, they arent as high as forecast, indeed, there have been no cuts at all, and recent deficit monthly figures are a lot worse than forecast, so really all in all, inspite of everything being forecast wrongly, on the wrong side of good, The economy has a lot going for it.

I put "economists" between quotes up there, 'cause most of them are not economists really. Any decent economist knows that the UK economy is totally, completely, and utterly fcuked up, and the gov. has no choice whatsoever. It will have to borrow hundreds of billions this year, and without this deficit reduction plan they would have to pay much higher interest rates, and that would show other lenders that the prospects were geting worse, and IR would go even higher, spiral, "à la" Greece.

Either Ed Balls knows that, and is a ******* lying demagogue, or he is a moron.

The bbc is the labour party political broadcast channel, it's known.

The IMF endorse Osborne but Stephanie Flanders suggests they aren't saying what the really think.

Impeccable sources have told me there was considerable concern among senior IMF economists last year at the pace of the coalition's plans to cut the deficit.

However, political negotiations at the highest level meant that these concerns did not get expressed in public. The organisation has publicly endorsed the government's strategy ever since and today is no exception.

Surely it's time it was changed to BLC instead of BBC? Why don't they just admit it?

why do people care what the BBC say, they are just a bunch of parrots anyway.

Flanders manages to sound educated and informed while spouting random crap.

There are plenty of people who know the way this is heading and know the solution, the solution is not going to found by politicians, that is for sure.

Actually the politicians may know the way this heading as well or at least beginning to get an inkling, but they can't implement the solution, until they are forced to.

What where they going to say? We don't have any choice no matter what Geroge and Ed say. The political point scoring is ridiculous between Labour and the Coalition.

Their policies are almost identical, I am convinced that had we had a labour government the budget would have been the same. The only difference is Osborne saying they are cuts and Labour saying they are investing more slowly. You couldn't make it up.
