Brown To Blame For Economic Slowdown

Recommended Posts

"GORDON Brown, Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, is directly responsible for the dramatic slowdown of the British economy, a leading forecaster will warn on Monday. Brown is also accused of procrastination, imprudence and trying to pass the buck in a devastating report by the Ernst & Young Item Club to be published this week.It says that instead of blaming oil prices and weak growth in Europe for Britain’s problems, Brown would do better to look closer to home. The black hole at the heart of Brown’s public finances will reach around £11bn (E16.1bn, $19.2bn) this year, fuelling fears of a huge tax grab, the Item Club has calculated, using the same model of the economy as Brown’s Treasury."

Ah yes, but in the same article it is reported that Rightmove expected to say asking prices up by 0.5% .... :rolleyes: :angry:

"Rightmove is expected to reveal that house prices rose by about 0.5% in October, after a decline the previous month. Prices in London are expected to have risen more strongly."

Yeah, I just noticed that! I can see alot of Bulls coming out of the woodwork on the Monday 17th (when Rightmove's report comes out).

Rightmove is based on asking prices, as we know there's been a lot of fiddling on Rightmove by declaring houses as SSTC then relisting them a couple of days later with new prices.

Fack Rightmove.....On Radio 4 next week there is a programme on how the school league tables are a sham and a con - the same goes for most polls/opinions on House prices.

imprudence

Not Prudent Brown, the most prudent chancellor who ever lived?

Lies, damn lies and statistics as Mr Churchill said once.
