  • Well, well!

    The best the Beeb can come up with is Declan O’Divot!

    This man is a slavering idiot and his obvious lack of knowledge is a total embarrassment to anyone with half an grain of knowledge about global capital markets, the global economy and more particularly the UK’s current micro-economic problems.

    As always lately, the blind leading the ill-informed to perdition.

    But the politicians and bankers don’t care i people are devistated by encouraging this, just as long as they achieve their twisted agenda of profit and power.

  • titaniccaptain, its a microcosm of the tragedy I foresaw many years ago.

    There are those who point at this website, maligning us in only the simplistic terms they can muster, lablelling us as either jealous or doom-mongers. This website exists for neither reason. It was always about justice.

    I would think it’s more likely to be a dose of it …. you can get some good cream for that. So I’ve been told.

  • Watched the panorama programme and was unsurprised, but dissappointed by Declan consyantly returning to the GB mantra…..this problem originated in the USA….not a real problem in the UK……..and then putting the frighteners out their about future financial terrorism from the sovereign wealth funds and China etc. who will own most of, if not all of UK PLC. Government line…keep em scared and through fear we will control…its about time we stopped being scared and started vocalising our discontent. The BBC really is just a mouthpiece for the garbage that comes out of GB.

  • I don’t know which thread to put this on – this one is as good as any, but I feel I need to post it..

    Once in a while I get a strong instinct that something might happen – something that no-one is expecting..

    In the past, this has come right about 50% of the time – so there’s an evens chance that nothing will happen –

    – but also an evens chance that it will..

    There have been many occasions when I’ve regretted not acting on my instincts, but on this count there’s little to be won or lost..

    ..it seems incredible, but also very possible, given his recent performance, that Gordon Brown might top himself.

    I hope he doesn’t. He has much to answer for, but I also want him to be here to face the music..

    As I’ve said many times before, the politicians are just pawns in this game. Except for people like Bush, who are fully into the program and are actually just actors. Why do you think they had Reagan as leader? Why have an actor as president!!

    No doubt Brown is probably a decent bloke. I have the intuition that Blair is corrupt to the Nth degree, but that Brown is a naive scapegoat. He was never in control. Blair got him in there when he was ready to bail. Brown’s economic policies have basically come down from Europe. CPI inflation, BOE “independence” (mirroring the ECB). You could be right.

  • Uncle Tom, I think GB is totally out of his depth and has must be reeling from being stabbed in the back by his old best mate Bliar. He must be struggling to make sense of his current situation. However, on the other hand his actions over the past 10 years will force countless numbers of UK citizens into poverty and struggle – immediately and for years to come – and will have added to the woes in Iraq and Afghanistan, amongst others. Therefore I think he deserves everything he gets.

    If you ask me the British public are being used and abused by our leaders and it’s time to take the gloves off. Politicans need to be reminded who they work for.
