In 1990, in the death throes of the Thatcher days, did anyone ever look at John Major and think "Hmmm. Very Prime Ministerial"?

Blair won't last 12 months. There are no alternatives.

There is every chance that he will become PM, the question is will he be any good?

IMHO no, esp when the economy deteriorates.

It's almost as if history is repeating itself i.e. The ousting of Thatcher and the rise of the lacklustre Major administration.

Easy to slag him off (and TB is even easier), but it's very easy to criticise... who will you be voting for who'll be any better and why will they be better?

No - neither I, but that's the point we need to realise.

There needs to be a change in political and financial infrastructure. It's just people are greedy and love their imaginary gains.

I recall him going on the news and telling the whole world that the reason for high oil prices was that OPEC operated a cartel and if that cartel was broken, prices would drop significantly.

Of course, all of the experts were saying that OPEC were near to capacity and that the problem was one of refining and not production. In any event, OPEC only accounted for about 66% of the world's oil production.

I thought that acted like a baboon and let us down going in front of the whole world, spouting off simplistic nonsense like that.

I have no doubt that Gordon Brown would be a disaster for the Labour party, and not much better for the country.

:P

So then he goes and doubles the tax on North Sea operators, incentive indeed.

Exactly, tax and spend. Old school Labour. He will swing the country further left than it wants to be. People elected Tony Blair, not Gordon Brown. when they are sick of TB, they sure as hell will not want GB! B)

He's operates under a Nu version of that - borrow like there's no tomorrow, spend like crazy, and then tax like a madman in order to pay the interest on the borrowings.

Actually the UK is now amongst the foremost buyers of US Treasuries!

'OPEC Brief':

http://www.eia.doe.gov/cabs/opec.html

EIA [Energy Information Administration] estimates that the current eleven OPEC members account for about 40% of world oil production, and about 2/3 of the world's proven oil reserves.

He lacks political backbone....and general presence/charisma.....He has screwed up the economy with his stealth taxes and increased public spending which as always is akin to pouring money down a black hole.

He's a loser.

GB will never become PM and if he did he would only last a few monhts. He is too technical, on general policy he comes across terribly for the average voter. I heard him doing a wide-ranging pirme-ministerial interview on the Today Programme a few weeks ago and it was a shambles, much less good than when he sticks to economic facts & figures, where he sounds impressive.

For my money anyway Tony is in his phase of trashing the Labour party's electability for future leaders, more or less as Thatcher did to the tories by staying too long. Tony is coming out with a fresh piece of demagoguery every day to shore up his own position with Mail-reading middle England, but this will further weaken his party, and further alienate the grass-roots workers, whose work really does count in winning elections .

New Labour have removed their clothing, they were indeed old labour at its very worst.

Their time is up, they no longer have the brain, nor the stomach to continue fooling the British Public.

They are a party in Chaos, Champagne Socialists bickering about who is going to get what. The shredders are now busy in all government departments in a vain attempt to cover up the deception and fraud carried out against hard working British Families.

They are now between a rock and a hard place, nowhere to go, its no longer if, but when and it wont come a day too soon.

They have let the people of Britain down, those who trusted them and gave them their vote have been well and truly shafted.

This morning Crash Gordon [saviour of the MEWniverse] has bailed out the Post Office pension fund [again, with our money]. A pension fund with a black hole of Brown's own making, as he forced pension funds to invest in ultra low-yeilding bonds/treasuries!!

W*nker

As for yesterdays jaunt to 'save' car workers jobs at Ellelsmere, notice he hasn't been rushing to save significantly bigger job losses in NHS, NTL, Orange...

No doubt it was a 'medja stunt' and part of a kick-back to the Amicus union, who handed over £1/2 million to NuLab the day before. The rest of it will be Warkick 2 - another NuLab/union deal - to 'create a level playing field for UK workers'

Roll on the 70's TruLab policies

I really resent the way the post office debacle has gone..

As I understand it, they were running a poorly managed inefficient service with badly invested pension funds.

They have a virtual monopoly on a previously set up state funded service.

They are now a private company & if they fare badly they sink like any other company.

They have simply upped the price of their services, & feel free to do so as there is no competition to challenge them.

Services haven't improved but now they are enjoying record profits, instead of dropping the price, posties now get bonuses of a free car for turning up to work for a whole week without a day off!!

Now even more of our money is being used to prop up their pension scheme preventing other workers from having extra money for their own pensions.

What on earth entitles this area of business to recieve handouts while others suffer.

Apparently now posties still feel they have a poor deal & are threatening strike action so expect another rise in prices soon.

All very valid points but...

...nobodies mentioned that stupid jaw drop habit he's got. Christ it's annoying. I can never concentrate on what he's saying as I'm waiting for his jaw to drop. Bad enough in a chancellor you only have to watch on budget day but intolerable in a primeminister who will be in your face every day.

Its hiddeous. Apparently in real-life Brown looks a bit of a freak: huge head, bulky upper body, with wierd short arms and legs, and the slack-jaw. Last week in PMQ's he spent the whole time trying top put off Cameron off by starring at him and jabbing a pen repeatedly into his glass eye. - Euwww! :blink:

That and his droning on, and on, and on, and on...

Alistair Campbell sent Brown to a shrink trainer to stop the drop-jaw thing, as part of Project Gordon, a couple of months back - remember when Brown started smiling, wore colourful ties, and we had the 'dual-premiership' :lol:

Campbell and Philip Gould [NuLab architect] gave up on Brown as being irredeemable, and Project Gordon was binned. Brown just isnt that easy to renew!

Speaking of Gordon, I was in the post office this morning and noticed a leaflet about the budget.

On the front it said something like "a strong budget for a strong and growing economy", accompanied by photos of teachers, nurses and a bricklayer building a house. Says it all, really! :lol:

It is a sad comment on our society that politicians' mannerisms and physical characteristics have to be of such importance.

I'm not having a pop at anyone as this whole "buffing up" marketing led approach applies to all parties.

How many potentially able politicians might we be denied by this?
