" We Have Low Debt In This Country" Brown On Bbc Now


Recommended Posts

"We have low debt in this country" just said it on BBC interview in what looked like a bus.

Mad. He is stark raving mad.

GORDON BROWN was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the

classes. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and

their meanings. The teacher asked Mr. BROWN if he would like to lead the

discussion on the word 'tragedy'.

So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'.

A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a

farm, is playing in the field & a tractor runs over him and kills him,

that would be a 'tragedy..'

No, said GORDON - that would be an accident.'

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy'

I'm afraid not, explained GORDON - that's what we would call great loss'

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. GORDON searched the

room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'

Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand...

In a quiet voice he said: 'If A plane carrying you and MR. DARLING was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile & blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'

'Fantastic!' exclaimed GORDON. 'That's right.. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?'

'Well,' says little Johnny 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be a f***ing accident either!'

Absolutely bloody terrifying

He's just an arrogant ******wit, plain and simple.

Incidentally Gordy has 133 ministers, and almost half the PLP have official jobs.

He simply cannot help himself but lie and spend other people's money. It is as simple as that.

Let's be honest, most British people can barely read their own name let alone financial statements and national statistics - he can say what he likes knowing that only 1 in every 5000 people will ever challenge him.

Isn't that what the interviewer should have been doing? I take it he got away with it unchallenged though?

Nick Robinson was doing the Brown interview when he made the low debt claim--a BBC journo. The interview took place on a train not a bus as I first thought.

Nick Robinson seems pointless.
