House Price Crash Forum

Ahem.

I am no Nulab fan.

There has been much criticism of our glorious 'miracle economy' on this site, of which the architect is seen as a certain Gordon Brown.

However, the rapid inflation of the dollar seen in the last couple of days, coupled with a rather strong sterling, would seem that his 'stewardship' of our economy is not quite as appalling as some would suggest. If our exchange rates had mirrored those of the dollar of late then fair enough, roll out the straw man.

But could it be safe to say that our economy is in better shape to whether the storm to come than many others? If a bunch of witless lookatmees have got themselves in MEW dept, sod them. It will not necessarily bring the country to it's knees.

Discuss. Or fling vegetables.

PS - this is 50% honest, 50% me hoping to trigger HPC with myself as the 'Chamberlain'.

I have faith in Mr Brown however...

Houses are overpriced, no one has any money unless they borrow it.

The balance has to be established somewhere and I can't see how it's going to happen without a crash in the economy at some point.

Maybe it won't be a huge crash, just a little one.

I know everyone says it could be a triple top etc...which is apparently an indicator for a bigger crash but, .....

CHRIST I DON'T BLEEDIN KNOW!

I agree entirely, I have 100% faith in Gordon Brown.

After all it is only right that he spends my money for me, who am I to decide where to spend my wages I am mere surf, a drone, caught up in the wheels of champagne socialism.

Why spend money on treating sick tax paying individuals in the NHS, when you can just cut their budgets and watch the health service crumble into oblivion. My tax money is far better spent on education for African children, Its what I have wanted all my life.

I lay in bed each night, dreaming of the day I can wipe out Aids in the world, Educate Africa, and supply weapons so the civil wars are fair.

He is great Gordon, and long may he rule.

One thing I like about Gordon Brown is the way he always manages to over predict the level of economic growth in his budgets, which inevitably means he has to borrow more money than he originally set out to borrow. Then, when he realises there is a short fall he invents a hidden stealth tax to make up for it.

I can't wait until he's the Prime Minister.

And he's so good looking! :o

There is more to a country than its currency, Brown's sphere of influence is pretty dire, he can claim direct responsibility for the following :-

- The spiralling budget deficits, government debt and liabilities.

- Robbing and destroying trust and value in private pensions, creating a massive disincentive to save with means testing.

- Pouring billions into unreformed public services (then sacking the wrong people when it goes tits up)

- Developing a pre-1989 Eastern Bloc style economy in entire 'nations' of the UK and areas of England, where public spending constitutes the majority of the regional economies.

- Burdening business with red tape, leading to the lowest business investment in 40 years.

- Falling direct foreign investment

- Cooking up crooked Enron style PFI style deals to hide debts that will saddle generations.

- Finally, what about selling off our stock of gold at $250 ounce?

Proclaiming 'prudence' and "the end to boom and bust" (nolonger uttered) does not make it so.

That's just the start, the guy is clever but nevertheless he is an uninspiring muppet.

The UK economy is like a person with malaria. The temperature is too high and for all the wrong reasons. In the medium to long term we are going to pay heavily for Gordon's public spending binge. Wealth creating businesses in the UK are shinking at an alarming rate.

I don't think he is particularly intelligent. He's an egomaniac who's nowhere near as clever as he thinks he is. Classic case of a mediocre intellect promoted beyond its owner's ability due to a moderate talent for spouting bullsh1t.

Gordon was treated like a hero for giving control of interest rates to the BOE. From what some people on this site are saying however (and for reasons I don't fully understand) Gordon appears to have surrepticiously retained strong influence over such matters using indirect means.
