Very clever: An economic false flag operation

Gordon Brown calls on Opec to lift production amid surging oil price

Print lots of money - causing oil to go through the roof. Blame in on your political enemies. Very clever indeed - Nice try - but no cigar.

  • Unlike money, oil cannot be printed.
    Perhaps somebody should point this out?

  • “Gordon Brown has called on the world’s biggest oil producers to increase their dialogue with the key consumers of crude and remove any barriers to increasing future production.”

    Does he think they are not talking? Does he think that anything he says will be of the slightest concern to these parties?

    “Mr Brown also called on leaders at the upcoming summit of G8 leaders in Tokyo to put the soaring price of crude at the top of its agenda. ”

    In other words, he hasn’t a clue what to do, but feels he ought to say something.

    “as we are examining how we can maximise the recovery of oil from the North Sea oilfields”

    Is he? It’s more a case of “as the oil price has risen so high, it is worthwhile for the North Sea platform operators to suck out every last drop”

    It is also the case that as soon as the oil price bubble deflates (which will happen, to some extent, but when is a hard call) the North Sea will no longer be a viable source.

    Future balance of payments? Value of Sterling? Oh dear…

    We could actually find ourselves paying more (in Sterling) for oil, after the global oil bubble has come off the boil.

  • UK Plc looks more and more like a sinking economic ship as each day passes.

  • I wonder if he is thinking of reducing house supply to address the problem of falling prices. Buy shares in bulldozer companies now.

  • The bloke (Brown) is always in a state of denial. Though I’m happy to concur that the sudden spike in oil prices is not entirely his fault, he should look at the amount of tax paid by the motorist at the pump. The thing is that Brown is blaming everything bad on world events. During every interview he starts banging on about the US.
    Brown and his cabinet make the Eurovision Song Contest look credible and fair.

  • GB always seems to be calling for various parties to help the consumer – the banks, the supermarkets, now the oil companies. Hello, they’re businesses, why would they care. GB may think it makes him seem caring but I reckon it makes him look stupid. He would be better to concentrate on doing his own job properly, instead of constant tinkering with things that are best left alone and ridiculous new tax grabs under the guise of caring for the environment. As far as our high petrol prices are concerned, that’s largely taxation anyway – check out what they pay in the US and NZ. When I left NZ (2002), diesel was 40 cents (less than 20p) and unleaded 74 cents/litre.

  • Lots of activity to look as if he’s doing something but in reality there is little he can do. If he brings tax down it will look like he’s caved in, and not a strong leader at all. Also, where will he put tax up to compensate? (The Tories would probably say bring tax down and don’t put it up anywhere else, but that’s just living in cloud cuckoo land.)

    Politically, he needs to demonstrate his strength of leadership, and his sensitivity. He’ll get lots of flak, but I’m sure he’s being told to tough it out. He’s already been told by the electorate he’s not liked, and the green tax issues are *meant* to hurt people — that’s entirely the point.

    What will be telling is how he finds ways to ease the pain of which groups. I believe a message of actively reducing the gap between rich and poor would be a compelling message, would counter the Tory big ideas (not sure what they are but reducing taxes, possibly?) and enacting measures that reduce the pain on the lower income groups while taking more tax take from higher earners.

    The 10p tax band was a brilliant strategy, and its removal a disaster. We all have bad days, but that was particularly piss-poor!

    Still, expect lots of noise of the PM ‘looking for solutions.’ I don’t expect many to really appear, but in politics it is the seeing to do rather than the doing that is often the more important.

    Politics has got interesting again!

  • Whenever I see the phrase “false flag”, I presume the author is a moron.

    However there are some good points being made here.

    Really! He’s has a year and the public en masse have stated their opionion on his leadership and sensitivity. He possesses neither and if that isn’t bad enough he does not possess ideas either.
    The thing that is even more worrying is that Labour collectively are so short of options, vision and guts that like sheep they say he is the right man for the job when in reality it is clear to the public, media and everybody exclusing the Labour party that he is a complete disaster and a liability.
    To summarise the decision of the Labour Party to back Brown is more frightening than Brown’s incompetemce.

    Not your fault Andy. Very easy to get the wheat confused with the chaff.

    To get the truth (as opposed to Main Stream Media (MSM) distortions)
    try googling the following
    “Operation Ajax”
    “Operation Gladios”
    “Operation Northwoods”
    “Nemesis file”
    “October Surprise”
    “Official Confusion”

    Tim, presuming you are holding these up as ‘truth’ looks like you’ve still got some chaff mixed in there….I am familiar with ‘Nemesis file’ – admitted as fiction for some 10 years now.
    I’m not saying that ‘false flag’ operations don’t exist, but at least point out the ones with actual credible evidence – of course, the existence of some does not automatically prove the existence of any that one wishes to believe.
