Brown To Take Over In 2 Years--b B C

Recommended Posts

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4659596.stm

Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have reached "a new understanding" which will see the chancellor take over as PM within two years, David Blunkett says.
The Chancellor's fitting reward for sustaining the economy and the continuing success of the house market that continues to add value to the nation's coffers.

Time will tell and time is running out for the Miracle Economy.

And at Least Brown has managed the funding of the NHS well. . . . or has he?

http://www.abcmoney.co.uk/news/2920061816.htm

LONDON - The NHS debt in the country totals more than £1 billion and this is having a detrimental effect of the morale of the staff, according to trade union Unison, which represents a number of healthcare workers.

So with a bankrupt NHS and HPI. exactly what has Gordon done to deserve occupying no. 10?

How does exchanging an unchanging pile of bricks for ever increasing sums of money add value?

Btw, was that quote for real? It's not in the article anymore.

Both Blair and Brown have done a superb job with the UK and no doubt will return back to Scotland safe in the Knowledge that they have well and truly F*ked up Great Britain, as the was obviously the game plan from day 1.

Do you reckon they were soviet "sleeper" agents left over from the cold war?

I think two years may be too long for Brown to wait. If the economy goes seriously pear shaped during this time, as I fear it may do, he may "enjoy" a year or so as PM before being booted out at the next election.

Maybe this is what Phoney wants?

The only place Blair is going is the US, and then on to hell.

But at least Gordon has created millions of little banks all over England in the form of ever increasing house prices to enable owners to withdraw unlimited amounts of cash to buy things and keep the economy going forever. He has effectively found the Holy Grail of economics: perpetual growth

No wonder the BBC use a picture of Gordon and Tony smiling like Cheshire Cats as they ponder their success.

Dont really see how any of this is Gordon Brown's fault myslef. I dont see either him or the other demonised figure, Mervin King, have done anything other than council caution.

As far as I am aware Brown and Blair have done nothing to stimulate the housing boom. On the contary, from the SIPPS U turn to the release of new land for building on they have worked positively towards reducing it.

I dont really belioeve public spending has much to do with anything really except slightly better services. I dont mind. I would be happy to pay more tax.

I dont believe red tape does that much harm other than preventing the odd lost limb or case of food poissening. I am not convinced that engineering a consumer boom whilst the rest of the world is in recession is that bad an idea.

Better having to pay it back whilst the rest of the world is growing no? I mean what's the alternative? More incoferent rants about tax and spend whilst being pressented witha succession of ever more unelectable candidates.

Is it just me, or is Cameron just another in a long line of rather vapid, middle rankers choosen on his percieved appeal to the public rather than any real charisma or purpose?

PS Dont correct the spelling and I wont either.

I had agreed with the theories that he was gunning for the top job at the EU.

I believe this was in his thoughts at one time, but I just don't think he'd get the job now.

With the exception of Iraq I've been ok with Tony Blair and would probably vote for him again. If however Gordon Brown is the next Labour leader then I'm switching to Lib Dem or the Green Party.

I wonder what the odds are on him joining the Carlyle group once he retires from no 10? I'd say pretty high especially after the latest sell off by the MOD!

Brown Says Shared Ownership Is The Answer

Key Worker Living: Davey accuses Government of adopting 'economics of a madhouse'

Davey accuses Government of adopting 'economics of a madhouse'

Edward Davey MP, Liberal Democrat Local Government spokesman, today branded the decision to invest £690 million into a new 'Key Worker Living' scheme, the 'economics of a madhouse'.

He said: 'The second re-launch of this subsidy scheme shows how badly the policy has failed. The Government should use the £690 million to build more affordable homes, not push house prices even further out of the reach of ordinary people.

'Subsidising even more housing demand, when what we need is more houses, is truly the economics of the madhouse.'

"I will not allow house prices to get out of control and put at risk the sustainability of the future." He said he was determined that the UK should not return to the "instability, speculation and negative equity" of the 1980s and 1990s. - Gordon Brown, 1997.

I can't believe Brown will WANT to take over in 2 years time - the government must be more out of touch with ordinary people than the last fuel crisis suggested

CEO of companies usually ride the macro economic cycle and take the baggage of whats happened to the company over that period with them (plus a huge payout) - a fresh CEO is installed and shareholders forgive and forget (if it was a bad period)

What's going to happen when Brown takes over in 2 years? (then again there will be a new Labour chancellor)

I think the Tories will win by default and I don't know what they are going to do if we're still stagnating...

Short term fixed mortgages are deferring the crash this time IMO.

Wait 'til they come off.

You know, if I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd reckon Gordy wouldn't put much effort into the next election. Cameron wins on a centrist agenda out of step with the membership of his party, has to deal with the crash/recession...Gordy steps up to the plate in 2012 and says "remember when I was in charge - all you Worcester women and Mondeo men were rich on HPI"

Impossible??

The Conservatives weren't that stupid in 2005. They fielded Michael Howard.

... and had ONE POLICY ONLY: One that only brainclamp cares about. :lol:

Speaking of whom... Anyone heard from brainclamp lately? :blink:

Who would want to be in the shadow of Brown as the new chancellor? You get 11 years of his baggage and continuing control freakery, the media will see you nothing more than a puppet, ahh, it all makes sense, Ed Balls!

It always makes me smile when you know Blair hasn't got a clue as to the contents of the budget until it's read out in the commons, Brown refuses to tell him! :lol:

Probably deported, he was trying too hard to be a native Britisher and the authorities saw past his guise.

I despise Blair. He is deeply authoritarian, a pathological liar, impossibly vain, power mad, completely unprincipled. He has consistently stamped on civil liberties and free speech and brought us to the brink of a police state. He specialises in intellectually sloppy, kneejerk legislation to appeal to the lowest form of Sun reader. He is only happy when he is fighting his own party and would be quite happy to destroy it. A man utterly devoid of integrity or sincerity, oblivious to history and tradition.

I will party for a week when he finally slithers off.
