  • I reckon if Gordon Brown was to resign unexpectedly the pound would rally and the ftse 250 would also see a nice rise in value.

    It’s all about CONFIDENCE (d’ya ken Gordoom Broon)

  • “hari kari”? It’s “harakiri”, meaning “cut the stomach”, and it’s not nice to wish that on anyone. Not even a one-eyed rugger bugger from Fife who should not be anywhere near a public office, far less public finances.

  • japanese uncle says:

    There is no such Japanese word as harakiri, but seppuku. Recent Hollywood films like ‘Ronin’ and ‘Lions for Lambs’ started to recognize this, though belatedly. Also there is no such volcano as Fujiyama (falsely believed to be its proper name for centuries) but Fuji-san.

    Anyway if CG (not referring to computer graphics, though the fictitiousness and superficiality of his policy has some similarity) resigns, it would not make any difference. It’s too late for any politician to do something about it. Let the disaster run its course, until we see the first sign of recovery.

  • Brown, sadly won’t resign. He’s too thick skinned to realise the electorate dislike him and too arrogant to realise he is taking the Labour party into at least another three terms as the opposition.

  • Gordon Brown: Leadership acceptance speech – June 2007

    “I tell you: the power of government can never substitute for the empowerment of people. The days of Whitehall ever thinking it knows best are over. We need government that does not overreach but reaches out; government as servant at all times putting opportunity in the hands of people.”

    “And it is time for a new and better relationship between government and the British people – with government the servant and more power in the hands of the people.”

    Gordon – how about practicing what you preach – the best way you can now serve the British people is with your resignation.
