Brown has 'destroyed confidence in statistics'

By Robert Watts (Filed: 21/05/2006)

Gordon Brown, the chancellor, has presided over a catastrophic destruction of the public's confidence in official economic data, according to a former chief government statistician. Lord Moser, who headed the forerunner of the Office for National Statistics for nearly 10 years, also said the chancellor's plan to make the ONS independent was deeply flawed.

GB appears to be similar to the old Soviet styled socialist politicians - he is not to be trusted as should anyone who's sole quest in life is for self political power - vis. the rape of the pension funds, baby taxes, the sale of our country's gold reserves costing us trillions, stealth taxes etc. stc. the list goes on and makes grim reading.

Would you really trust such an individual with any statistic which might endanger his quest for power? You can be sure that whatever he says that he will still have his hand very firmly on the statistical tiller to manipulate the truth.

If you torture the numbers long enough they will eventually confess.......

By making it independant do they mean selling it to a private firm. Maybe rightmove would be interested, truly independant.

They can not give it away to trustees they will want some money, it will be sold.

And as for GB being next PM. Where the hell has the democratic process gone. I can understand that we will not get a say but all the ministers of the labour party aren't to get a say either.

I agree this is worrying. Politicians who crave wealth are maybe not so bad - a few million here or there is nothing compared to the havoc being wreaked by Gordon Brown's megalomania.

Crash Gordon will suffer the consequences of his actions soon. Once the house price crash starts many home owners will be looking for someone to blame and there is only one person.

..a catastrophic destruction of the public's confidence in official economic data...

It may surprise Lord Moser, whoever he is, that the public couldn't give a f||ck about 'official economic data'. Why the hell would they? It may be important to him and a few nerds but otherwise people just get on with their lives and, somehow, survive without reading or understanding 'official economic data'. I really can't see a revolution springing up on this subject.

Thanks for providing unquestionable evidence that you are a complete scumbag. In a democracy, that is a truly abhorrent statement.

You are the epitome of the NuLabour mind control project. Have you forgotten that politicians are there to serve the interests of the people, not manipulate them for their own ends.

I completely agree. There maybe a few people that are interested, myself & many on this forum included, but do you think most people care? Do you think most people have heard of the ONS or know what they do?

It's a real shame, but people just are not interested in what politicians get up to, that's why we get parts of the country voting for the same party for generations regardless of the quality of the job they do.

For perhaps the first time, I wholeheartedly agree with StF; in a democracy, you have no right to ignorance :angry:
