Crash Gordon maintains he is the man best-placed to lead Britain through the choppy economic waters ahead.

Brown 'Keeps Focus On UK Economy'

Gordon Brown today said Britain faced "the first great financial crisis" of the "global age" as he sought to shrug off betrayal at the hands of former Home Secretary Charles Clarke. Mr Brown claimed the British economy is "better placed to weather any economic storm than it was in the 1970s, 80s or early 90s" because of sound monetary policy and "the most flexible labour market in Europe" which was keeping employment close to record highs.

  • No-one’s listening Mr Browne – As you were Chancellor for 10 years you are now the architect of your own downfall – The economy.

    I rest my case.

  • It appears that the Labour party has absolutely no idea what’s happenning here. If there was an election today the torie would win by a landslide becasue the labour supporters would just not come out to vote.

    They appear to have their heads firmly stuck up their collective @rse.

    In fottie terms “They’re gifting it to the opposition brian !”

    Why does Tottenham always do that, its so depressingly predictable.

    Oh, and about Gordon Brown, I think the Labour party is 100% aware of what is going on and is completely treacherous and
    hence very dangerous. I think they would stop at nothing to remain in power and that includes something like trying to use the
    EU “treaty” to postpone the elections. I think it may be theoretically possible under the treaty of Lisbon to do that if you were desperate enough. Thankfully the Irish have mucked that up for now… I seem to remember something about that when the treaty was discussed.
    The thing is so long and confusing, who knows what is possible.

  • Postpone elctions last_days….

    I don’t think so, who would defend that? The army, doubt it they’d want a tory government anyway. And If we don’t have riots on the streets anyway, within the next 2 or 3 years, not having an election in may 2010 would make things kick off big time, the feeling of unrest is already in the air because the blubbermint just AINT listening.

  • The sheeple were happy when they were making a perceived £10’000 + a year in equity on their property. The wheels have come off, the illusion has been shattered and the sheeple now feel let down by the Labour govenment. The Conservatives would not have made this much mess, even though I know they’re not perfect. Even if you don’t believe this to be true right now, in two years time, when this mess has begun to truely play out, you will agree.

    Lets not forget Labour inherited a budget surplus from the Major government. Having a surplus now seems like fantasy land.

  • @ 9, the Labour Government is clearly on a mission to get into as much debt as possible, to pass on to the Conservatives to tidy up. How irresponsible! They really must not care at all about the long term well being of this country.

  • GBH has made many claims, few have the ring of truth or even show much original talent. He is a copy-cat, trickster, and cannot even run a spin-doctor machine that was the signature of Blair. What happened to the end of the Boom & Bust economic cycle. He was the architect of cheap credit, and has only himself to blame. It is not possible to blame him for the incompetance of the banks in going so deeply into the sub-prime market, without attaching a preventative interest rate to those borrowers. But he did knacker the monitoring bodies that should have stopped the banks from commiting self-infricted injuries.

    Now we must all suffer his folly, even those who have/had sound businesses.

    Re: Pawn Shops.
    Interestingly on our high street and side streets, I mentioned back in Feb/March the sudden emergence of 3 pawn shops at the same time, obviously several people had the same idea, but did not expect others to setup shop at the same time. Well, back in May/June, 2 shops disappeared, 1 of which merged with the remaining shop. I have heard that the 3rd player is getting back into the market in the same or adjacent shop that was abandoned. Apparently in time for the Xmas season.

    Oh happy times.

    Agree with you on this. The worse it is for the next government the more likely the sheeple will blame them for the state of the country and the quicker these fuc|

  • Its interesting listening to Brown. He is beginning to seem more and more like Hitler in the bunker as portrayed in the film Downfall. As the Russians closed in he focused on moving various German divisions to meet the threat. Needless to say these units only existied in his fevered imagination. In the end he blamed the German people for the devestation that fell upon them. Having voted for New Labour in three elections the Brown can quite legitimately do the same.

    We won’t have to do anything. They are economic migrants. When there is no work the majority will leave. The only downside being to BTL property experts who suddenly realise that nobody wants to rent their squalid properties.

  • Incase you were wondering where some of the money was coming from to pay for Our Dear Leader’s Economic Recovery Plan, (ODLERP) wonder no more. Part atleast is coming from a raid on the budgets of the Regional Developement Agencies (RDA), reveals our local paper, the EADT. The East of England RDA is being tapped up for £20million. The RDAs have sent letters of protest saying that such budgetery raids essentially cripples their work for next year atleast.

    RDA’s are a government body that do rather useful work supporting/promoting local business and tourism. Seems to me Our Dear Leader’s popularity is more important than those systems introduced by his own government that support the economy!

    @Fingerbob.

    RDAs do bu**er all. They are yet another layer of Quangocrasy who just convene on a daily basis for meetings, lunches and personal development seminars.

    A personal friend has just got a job at a Regional Assembly in the SW. Coming from the private sector where you’re lashed like a beast all day long she’s absolutely gobsmacked at how little gets done. During her first day on reception she answered 4 emails and made 4 phone calls. there are 62 people working there and they are employing 3 more at ‘management level’. The ‘bonfire of the Quangos’ never happened in fact Labour found some gerry cans of aviation fuel and merely poured it on.

    Meaningless, pointless, wasteful client voters – nothing more nothing less.
