The ‘right thing to do…’

US Bailout Talks Continue; Britain's Brown Pledges Support

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with Mr. Bush at the White House late Friday, and offered his backing. "Britain supports the financial plan, and whatever the details offered, it is the right thing to do to take us through these difficult circumstances," he said.

  • Brown has been covering his back for so long by saying “it’s the right thing to do” about whatever he does – that he can’t realise how ridiculous he sounds.

    If he doesn’t know any of the details – how can he be sure that it’s right?

  • GB is and has been holding his cards back. I’m almost certain of this. Secondly, the greedy in the UK, are going to reep what they have sown.

    Crash Gordon doesn’t need to bother himself with silly details, for he knows, when the yanks spend $700 billion dollars stopping their banks getting into the brown stuff, he will have no trouble convincing the pathetic phsycophants in his party to spend squillions on bailing out our banking system in the vain hope of not being forever known as……

    “Crash…. woo-ooo…. Master of the universe…..” Now where’s the evil Ming when you need him ??

    Yeah I thought that when I saw him say it on TV. Pretty dumb really. In hind-sight he probably wishes he said something different. But I think it is the truth in that it reveals the Crash Gordon mind. All through his Chancellorship he has just done what Americans do, don’t matter if they are wrong or right.

  • I think it’s a way of absolving himself of responsibility. Similar to the way religious people justify their actions by saying that it was God’s will – if they do something they perhaps shouldn’t.

    By asserting that what he does is right – unquestioning listeners just accept that he knows what he’s doing – and that he is right. Several Cabinet members have started to use the same tactic, I notice. If they have simply done the right thing – they can’t be held to blame. Whilst you can’t fault the logic of doing what’s right – you can fault the assertion that whatever it was is right in the first place. It’s a shame that none of the interviewers seem to go there.

    We will no doubt be told that it is ‘right’ to use the money we pay in tax to help out too, as nooneo says.

  • reminds me of blair when bush needed a British PM to back his invasion plans for a country that didn’t have an airforce or a navy.

    Do the americans really believe he speaks on our behalf?

  • @ Malct.. “reminds me of blair when bush needed a British PM to back his invasion plans for a country that didn’t have an airforce or a navy.

    Do the americans really believe he speaks on our behalf?” you are obviously referring to Iraq. Tony Blair, was or is a charlatan, look at where he is heading now. Yale University.. let the Posh Chav go.. I say. Events & circumstance is playing to our favour, and once relinquished from ownership, debts will be repaid. Karma.. (I won’t say “my friend”, as after watching mccain & obama debate, “the puppet duet”), I prefer to be British in my sentiments. The USA is a country that is simply falling as we speak. Things are changing so fast, we now need to be stead-fast & strong, and weed the idiots out of our society.

    “Do the americans really believe he speaks on our behalf?”

    Half of them believe the world started four and a hlf thousand years ago and that God, in his pesky old way of tricking us, riddled the world with “fossils”, to cnfuse the issue.

    Another survey I read last year, informed us that nearly 25% of americans didn’t know where the ENGLISH language came from !

    Oh, and they believed Bush and Bliar when they said thet Saddam Hussein could muster more than a couple of dozen scud missiles and our “way of life” was at threat.

    They also beleive they have a god -given right to make war with everyone who gets in their way.

    They’ll have absolutely no trouble convincing themselves that a half-blind, sack o’ spuds, with an independent juddering jaw that appears to make the man look like he’s lip-syncing, speaks for all of us at all !

    Read what you have just written, and think again. The USA are really “out of touch”, the Brits “are not”. As for Bush the clown , well him and the Senate Circus are well & truly…

    Let the Americans hang their own noose, they don’t need our help.

  • When Barak Obama, flippantly declares on our “Commonwealth Cousin” in Pakistan in a Presidential Speech, then is the time for us “Brits to stand-up”. As Britain is the world, and the commonwealth. And their (US) failing system, we need to distance ourselves from the crooked in this failed system. These people seem to want to fight the world. In truth, they are fighting themselves. But we need (the people) need freedom from not only nations, but from bankers, and from families that threaten a peaceful world. The industria; revolution is over, and so are these has beens, conform or become extinct.

  • nooneo said “a half-blind, sack o’ spuds, with an independent juddering jaw”

    Priceless! Lol

    mountain goat said “In hind-sight he probably wishes he said something different”

    yes, probably. Though we’ve all been there I’m sure. Well I have anyway!

    I wonder, though, if the conspiracy theorists may have a point here. Suppose the reason he’s over there is to be briefed verbally in a ‘bug-proof’ room. He could have been told what the outcome of the discussions in Congress is going to be (all part of the great plan) and what his (and our) part in it will be – and the approval he gave was a slip of the tongue which he tried to cover up by adding “whatever the details”. It does seem odd that such a pernickety person would give a blanket approval if the details were not already known to him.

  • Guys, if youwatched last nights presidential election. knowing the intelligence that you hold, and for any intelligent period.. would understand these guys are not google they are simply gargar .com. get a grip gentlemn, point scoring off of these guys, but this seems to be part of our problem. Thankfully, things will change, and I will happily see greedy people being hounded and vilified and brought to book.

  • most of the labour cabinet went on training courses in the US before they were allowed into power.

    Brown told us via Sky news today that he went over there to make sure they were doing a proper job!

    We voted Labour into power, we must press for them to be voted out. I do think there is a real difference between the parties no matter
    what the conspiraloons say. We need to push for a change of government. Might be a chance for the LIb Dems if they can get their act together.

    I personally hope the conservative leadership doesn’t start behaving like its a done deal because then they are going to find themselves out in the cold like Neil Kinnock. I doubt they would make that mistake.

    hard to bare though it is, party politics is an illusion, a distraction, a means of wasting effort and time.

    It’s very effective.

    Blair’s ten years should have made that obvious.

    there is no left – right or centre except in the perception of mind controlled freaks who sadly represent the vast majority of the population in this country ( tic) (fth)

    nobody voted labour into power – well nobody capable of free thought, it just happened.

    quiet today, time to analyse yesterday’s work. CIA, Mossad and MI5/6 will have reports on the desk Monday.

  • IMO Governments are voted out rather than in – take Labour’s victory in May 1997, much of this was to do with people being sick and tired of the Tories and the sleaze factor. The very same circumstances are now facing Crash Gordon & Co – what perplexes me however is the flip flopping between the Tories and Labour – it hardly leads to good, stable or forward thinking government – proportional representation might again be worthwhile exploring.
