Brown Interviewed By John Snow - Channel 4 Now

For a short while after last August I was thinking that politics could make a difference - shape a better future etc.

After this week's pathetic non-performance by the Conservatives, I'm back to thinking that they should all be booted out for failing to see anything of the real picture.

There is only one politician who has some credibility in this arena - Vince Cable. And Michael Portilo has also seen beneath the plastic veneer of "10 years of economic stabilty". Shame he has no influence these days.

The entire Western economy is at tipping-point and Cameron can't even land a single decent jab on Brown's flabby chin.

The Tories have all the ammunition they need if they just bothered to look for five minutes at post 9/11 interest rate policy, self-cert mortgages scams, buy-to-let tax abuses, destruction of pensions, decimation of manufacturing, PFI waste, rising unemployment, CPI deception, suppression of wages by immigration.......

I actually want Brown to stay around for another two years and rot in the hell that he has orchestrated for this country.

I want him to be an object of ridicule and I want him to see the pain and misery that he has delivered.

"No more boom and bust" "Prudence" etc.

Wa*k*r.

The tory response to NuLabour's handing of the economy has been abysmal ever since Cameron won the leadership election. David Davis would have been soooo much better.

But really, it all just seems like a sick joke. The Tories have had a full magazine of tactical weapons to fire at Broon and they have DONE NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING!!!!!!

How can anyone have any confidence that the Tories are going to change anything? It's just bloody ridiculous.

As for Broon...........I really don't know where to begin. I don't know what punishment is worthy for their crimes and that includes for the smirking sociopath Bliar and all the other totalitarian fascists that have found a home in NuLabour. They are absolutely fekkn despicable people, all of them.

But that's not quite it, is it? Because we have an electoral system that is incredibly inefficient when it comes to translating the wishes of the electorate into a representative parliament, people usually don't vote FOR anyone. On May 2nd 1997 I couldn't find a single person who said they'd voted for Labour, or Lib-Dem come to that.

Just lots who'd voted AGAINST the Tories, their only aim being to get the Tory out. And now I hear lots of folk talking about how they want to vote Labour out but no-one has talked about voting the Tories in.

Which hardly makes for constructive popular engagement in politics.

I think you (and many others I hasten to add) are missing the key point to democracy.

Democracy is a way of replacing your leaders in a bloodless coup and purge the system of mediocre 'careerists' and fraudsters who weedle their way in over time. Blue or red, they all need purging from time to time to rid ourselves of disease.

Actually I don't disagree with your comment. Of course the sewer needs to be flushed out every so often - now is definitely one of those times. My point was that the mechanism we have in place to do that is both hopelessly inefficient at supplying a replacement set of vermin representatives who accurately represent the wishes of their employers (i.e., US) and also by its very nature it forces people to concentrate on what they don't want from a political party rather than what they do.

Couldnt agree more.

Yes - a bit like on forms where they ask you your Nationality. I feel they think you ought to write 'British'. But British is not a Nationality. So I write 'English'. Why do I feel like a fascist little Englander when I do that? I don't know, I'm just following my ******** tendencies.

EDIT: Prize for anyone who can guess what the word was.

post-modernist?

My guess : 18-28 years old. Can't remember the economic f*** ups and corruption of the tories in government. Admirable idealism that another party would bring about 'change'. It was me once, except the other way around. I could never understand how anyone could vote tory if they weren't certifiable or stupid. I would still never vote tory, because as a non millionaire it's not in my interest to do so.

Now I know that they are both essentially two sides of the same coin - both full of incompetent ego obsessed spivs whose main concern is their own self promotion. I understand the arguments for voting for both of them and no longer caricature those of a left or right persuasion with a broad moral or intellectual label. The idea of a voting licence may be tempting when one is despairing at the numbers of oafish idiots wandering the streets, but when you reflect on it, you see it leads to, well, totalitarian fascism, so it gets the thumbs down from me.

Some call me a cynic.

...why would you never vote for the party who handed over the strongest economy in Western Europe 96/97 to these lefty dimwits.....Tories may have millionaires among their supporters but look at all the millionaires who were trying to get favours out of Nulabour ....Labour and it's supporters think the State should provide ...but ..forget to remind the naive and stupid the State is actually the hardworking taxpayers supporting the 'want something for nothing brigade'...yes this Nulabour should be voted out of Government now... if the country had any common sense..... <_<

Perhaps there should be a clip during X-Factor or Big Brother or whatever reality c**p is on at the time of the election reminding people.

Maybe they could make it interactive, i.e. Press the red button now to vote.

On second thoughts, maybe not, we could end up with "Eoghan Quigg" or whoever as PM.

....I would trust Maggie...but not Gordo..... <_<

I hate Thatcher but even I have to admit it is not a hatred of the person but of her ideas and what she stood for.

I think as a person Gordon is OK but again he was a socialist turned free market advocate.

His big mistake was to give the capitalist free market embodied by the City free reign.

He looked at Capitalism as a wealth creating engine that was running flat out and the wealth created to be distributed

fairly throughout society. But unfortunately the nature of capitalism is such that the wealth never did trickle down and

now the engine has seized no more wealth can be created.

What is ironic is that the proposed solution is to take taxpayers money to free up the bank market so that they are able to

provide credit to people again at a high rate of interest. Why not allow taxpayers just pay less tax and maybe they won't need the credit? But that's how capitalism works.

What a pathetic interview. What was he on about saying that first-time buyers can only get 80% of their mortgage guaranteed? He's just aimlessly waffling and obviously doesn't understand what he's talking about.

Yes - what was that? Did he mean LTV or did he really mean guarantee, as in mortgage indemnity?

John Snow disappoints in this interview, but on reflection he achieved the first aim of interviewing: to be invited back the next time.

As can be seem here, Brown doesn't need a tough interviewer to reveal his inconsistencies and untruths.
