Crash Gordon Offering Advice To Labour Party On "credible Economic Policies"

Recommended Posts

This would be funny if it wasn't true. Gordon Brown, purveyor of finest quality cheap gold is lecturing the labour party about how it needs to formulate "credible economic policies". The expert in saving the world wants to teach a bunch of socialists how that it's better to steal people's money by inflating asset bubbles and bailing out banks than by direct taxation.

Just reading the words "Gordon Brown" and "credible economic policies" in the same sentence is a laugh.


The other leader candidates are Yvette Cooper, Liz Kendall and Andy Burnham.

They all have a track record of continuing the LibLabCon work and helping with the country/economy wrecking the last time the Lab was in power although Kendall wasn't an MP (being an MP that includes Corbyn as well of course).

The BBC, perhaps having realised the absurd nature of the original headline have now spun it to something less ridiculous

"Gordon Brown says Labour has to become "credible" and "electable" once again in order to change people's lives."

The original headline for posterity, is still visible on google

Seems the NWO spinners are out in force today.

New bbc headline


Labour leadership: Gordon Brown says party must be credible.

That's still raises a laugh. Try again. Might it be best to not report what he says at all (Blair as well for that matter).

The bbc video with the fair spinning away in the background - giving a surreal touch to his speech.

John Redwood provides a better synopsis than the MSM

There is a delicious irony in Gordon Brown saying Labour needs a credible economic policy from its new Leader to be able to win an election. It was his boom and bust policy towards bank regulation which lost them two elections in a row, so I am not sure his judgement of what a credible economic policy would look like can be relied on.

From the bbc link


Analysis: Alex Forsyth, political correspondent, BBC News

That was a big speech - Gordon Brown covered almost the entire history of the Labour Party - but there was one point that he was very clearly making.

It doesn't matter what your principles are, what you believe in. None of that is any good unless you can get into power and that was a veiled dig at Jeremy Corbyn.

...

and there's no point and none of it is any good if you get into power and then end up continuing to wreck and devastate the economy some more and just continuing the earlier wrecking work of the LibLabCon. Then your party isn't credible irrespective of who is in charge - but that applies to all the main parties as well.

So sell your soul and do what it takes to get into power.

What do Cameron and Osborne actually belive in?

I can't believe that man was ever Prime Minister, it's like a weird dream thinking back on it.

I feel that about the entire political class - it's an embarrassment. In an ideal world, these people would be role models (I know....).

It's like some start up party trying to establish some core ideas, a mission statement. "Well we must be credible - obviously".

It's the Labour party for goodness sake. Whether you support them or not credibility should have been sorted out in 1900 with Ramsay MacDonald when the party was first created. Was that RM spinning around in the bbc video - outside, near the Houses of Parliament. No offence to RM of course.

I don't know why there was a schism between the Brownites and the Blairites because they basically believe the same thing i.e. run your economy the way City bankers want it run, this is the only way to gain and hold onto power. All other policy choices are "not credible" (whatever that means).

If Catherine Tate does a new series maybe she could do an "I can do that" on roles like the UK Chancellor and PM - maybe the housing minister. It seems to be more or less how the jobs get given.

For sure it would be appropriate

That's about the measure of it. Personally I think Brown was delusional. He still held his "old labour" socialist values dear and simultaneously believed that he could fund it all with borrowed money as long as he gave the city complete control over the economy by removing the last vestiges of any regulation. He probably viewed this as some kind of "I scratch your back while you scratch mine", whilst completely failing to realise that the city already owned his and every other political party's a*se.
