Gordo Claims He Was Right All Along

Recommended Posts

..saw this on the Site's blog area.... :rolleyes:

Gordon Brown fears euro crisis worse than Lehman as 1930s beckon

Mr Brown admitted that he was hardly a pin-up politician for stimulus and global action, having lost last year's election on such a manifesto, saying: "People preferred a more parochial solution, seeing debt as the bigger problem. But I have been proved right."

Gordo's great intellect is focused on more wordly things than little Kirkaldy - given this mighty intellect you have to forgive him for this...

It was this great intellect that, as the intellectual Diane Abbot said, kept the UK out of this Euro thingy.

"It has morphed into a sovereign debt crisis,

Yeah right :lol:

These things just happen, they just sort of "morph" like magic as the late great Tommy Trinder, another comedian, would have said "just like that" and lo and behold there's another crisis. MacBust and his magic morphery :lol:

I'll bet the Chinese went away and had a little giggle to themselves - "and you know who's running the UK country now 'the Coalition' " :lol::lol::lol:

...for him that was a control thing ...not to join Europe ...most of the 'intellectual' left were for joining the Euro 'thingy'.... it was a matter of common sense not to join the common currency ..bad enough the ERM...a warning shot..but as a net contributor in the Market and not a net taker the writing was on the wall for a closer tie ...we tend to play according to the rules of cricket in these matters ...for others it's liar dice.... :rolleyes:

I think Barts email above pays ample tribute to this colossus, the intellectual giant that saved the world - until such time as its someone elses problem.

What I've generally found with my Scottish freinds is that they think he's alright and that the hate for him is just an anti Scottish thing amongst the English. I hope some of our Scots friends can speak up otherwise.

...I'm Scottish ....but not a lefty...and I think he is an embarrassment ...as do most SNP supporters North of the Border...only the lefties like him ...those verging towards communism.... :rolleyes:

The only good decision he made was to keep us out of the euro, and he only reason he did that was to spite Blair who wanted in.

Selling our gold was more to form

Why does anyone still bother to report what a complete failure like him says?

Persons like him thrive when they see their rubbish printed in the news and discussed by people, they fear nothing more than being lonely and forgotten, so by discussing his thoughts you all give him power and satisfaction.

Just ignore the old fart.

Darn, I was hoping Gormless Brown would be unique in holding that coveted title.

....

"The euro can't survive in its present form and will have to be reformed drastically," he told a mostly-Chinese audience at the World Economic Forum in Dalian.

The former Prime Minister said EMU's malaise is at root a banking crisis, not a debt crisis. "The European banks as a whole are grossly under-capitalised: they have liabilities far in excess of American banks. We have now got the inter-play with sovereign debt because we socialised the liabilities," he said.

"It has morphed into a sovereign debt crisis, and is more serious than 2008 because governments then could intervene to sort of out banks. Now both banks and governments have problems," he said.

Finally he comes clean. Though I didn't see a disclaimer on all things financial in the article.

Tommy Cooper you muppet.

Tommy trinder was years before. Ive seen clips of him in early recordings of the palladium shows. he was one of the last guard of the music halls

and as such looked utter shite. I belive his catch was '' hes down again mother''.

It's not a sovereign debt crisis.

It's an imbalances problem.

So he still doesn't understand what's going on.

(In my left pocket I have a £10 note. In my right pocket I have an IOU for £10 - there is no crisis).

Gordo deserves no credit for keeping us out of the euro.

He did so for purely selfish reasons, to retain his relevance and power as Chancellor.

He never said the interest rate suited to Britain is inherently different to that suited for France, Jermany or Greece.

Gordo is a creep.

whilst Brown is clearly a cretin and couldnt see a business cycle if it fell on him

Browns five tests for entering the Euro

Number 1 (the first, not the second or the third or the fifth) - .Are business cycles and economic structures compatible so that we and others could live comfortably with euro interest rates on a permanent basis?
