Brown Says 1.4trillion Of Personal Debt Is A Good Thing!

Recommended Posts

http://news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_70...9055&news=1

About 12 or 13 minutes in Crash Gordon tries to justify the huge level of personal debt and basically states that it's a better situation nowadays as we can afford payments on a larger debt! Is it just me that is barely managing to contain my anger whilst watching this interview? It's well worth watching the full video too, the section discussing Northern rock is interesting too.

No. I have to turn off the telly in order not to have a apoplectic seizure! :angry:

What is sadder is that an astounding proportion of the population will actually drink all that bilge water in.

Odd that. Me too. Bliar mostly used to make me laugh with incredulity, but Brown is unwatchable without wanting to throw up.

PURE LIES AND SPIN - oh the surprise!!

It's an old technique.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Lie

Big Lie is a propaganda technique in which the lie is so complex that the public will either dismiss it as impossible or choose not to believe it out of willful ignorance. It was defined by Adolf Hitler in his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf as a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously".

Yup, when she asked about mortgages he twisted it round saying err! well, they are cheaper to buy than in the last boom so er! aren't I doing good. Trying to imply that mortgages were now at half the price than in the last boom (bolleaux), yes 7.5% interest is half of 15% just didn't allow anyone to mention you need to borrow 3/4X as much. God! he is contemptable. Is there anything else he can find in the attic to sell, how much longer can this go on?

My main problem with him is that he is the purest politician I've ever heard.... in that I don't any of us will ever hear him admit he was wrong. Secondly he will never give a straight answer. I hope someone does the Paxman / Michael Howard tactic of asking the same question 19 times.

I think the real problem is that is they are afraid that they will never get another interview if they are too tough. Only the heavyweights with important prime time shows that the politicians need to be seen on can get away with really standing up to the likes of Brown.

He can say what he likes, the only people hes convincing are BTL landlords, recent buyers, and homeowners without dependents.

Even older people are starting to worry about how their children will ever afford to buy. Its not that much use having an extra hundred grand of equity if you have to MEW it all just so your son/daughter can buy half a studio flat in some hell hole.

Come to that, has Paxman been able to interview Howard since THAT interview? (Admittedly Howard was out of office a year later so the demand for him wouldn't ever be the same again, except perhaps during his party leadership.)

Anyway who else would be as tough?

I saw Howard on a Newsnight discussion about the Blair years a few months ago. The highlight was when Howard called Alistair Campbell a liar to his face. :)

Ever seen Gordon Brown interviewed by Paxman?
