Must be seen to be doing something. Anything.

Brown creates national economic council

"LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown established a National Economic Council on Friday to coordinate economic policies across government and help people cope with the fallout from the financial crisis." So that was the problem. We didn't have a council to coordinate our economic policy. I am reassured. Not.

  • I see the BBC has yet again done it’s duty in being the ultimate government patsy, with a biography of Mandelson ending with:

    “And with four years as trade commissioner under his belt, he could be a valuable asset as Mr Brown seeks to beef up his government’s response to the current global economic turmoil. ”

    Remember to pay your BBC subscription fees. Or get thrown in jail.

  • Thought this was the Chancellor’s job??!! Oh, silly me, of course they had to form a council for Brown & Co to meet and ask “advice from experts.” cos nobody in the cabinet/Treasury can cope with stringing a phone number together to call up and ask advice from the appropriate people as and when needed…oh, and of course, if all their business friends are officially on a council, they have to pay them a wad of taxpaters’ dosh, plus expenses. And they’ve probably had to form a committee to form a working party to form the council – it’ll keep them all in snouty nose in trough jobs for years

    Anyway, why do they need a council, when all they have to do is log onto HPC!!!!!! Get all the necessary advice they need here :o)

  • This just sounds like beer and sandwiches socialism…(This post is intended for the over 18s only)

    Sh!t we gott us into one hell’va mess, better panic and make things worse buy getta a scary old queen back from Europe to really mess with the blubbermint and now we can set up another group of highly paid numbskulls to really mess wit the economy when really we should just ride the wave of economic failure and blame the US instead.

    You messed the debt mountain, Brown…
    You messed with the property bubble (biggest I’ve seen, I’m on the wrong side of 45)
    You messed with the weed mon…
    And you’ve well and truly busted your boom.

    Anything that has the friggin word “national” in it scares the absolute sh!t outta me.

    This word and the friggin word “socialism” put them together and you have a f-in nightmare !

    National economic council. This will make me seriously scared.

    I for one, will never worry about the US, because it’s insane! But when some mudda fooker says “national economic and council” in the same sentence, you want to get really worried, that this bunch of wasters, doesn’t want to do something crazy and nationalise everything, or most things”

    Forget being worried about the Tories, get worried now, about this imbecille Brown. He is scared, and wants to take you into “darker” times…… with….

    ‘ckin Mandelson…. Like goebbols only scarier…..This bunch of rotten ex socialists will run this island into the ground, they have nothing but their own skins and mutated ideaolgies for company….they are wasters pure and simple….

    Be afraid people of Albion… these scary MFkers will take our souls…

    Nooneo, sounds like you’ve recently had a rude awakening. Problem is, that the lack of opposition to anything in the past decade points to us having, like the US, a two party dictatorship.

  • Guess WHO?

    A Graphological Analysis from Newspaper Published Handwriting Samples.
    Date 30 April 2003. Open Document.
    Deep Psychological Profile of the Hidden Personality of Mr Anon (Abstract Version).

    Mr Anon is a dictatorial, intolerant, introverted idealistic perfectionist. He erroneously
    believes that he orderly, logical and pragmatic.

    Being an introverted judging type, he is intolerant and ironically, has strong idealistic concerns.
    Being a suppressed introvert, he is powerless to implement the necessary directives to attain the
    perfection in himself that he demands of others. His current profession is contraindicated for his
    psychological type as it enables him to unconsciously exercise the defective parts of his
    personality by legally and financially dominating and manipulating everyone towards his naive
    moralistic ambitions.

    This results in him coming across as an obsessive hypocrite expounding dictatorial behaviour
    sustained by punitive avengement (nevertheless unduly anxious). All of this, he naively believes
    is for everyone’s good and he expects to receive recognition. Approval will never be

    Mr Anon, during his early formation negatively identified with the father or a father figure,
    although he will contradict this should he find himself backed into a corner. Then he will claim
    alliance to his father (to negate blame) and project the superiority of his family lineage of

    He grew up with stern moral prohibitions placed on him. These prohibitions, religious and
    moral laws and ethical ideals were internalised in his super-ego or controlling psyche. This
    causes him to quickly feel guilty if he does not comply with the standards that were imposed by
    his stern father figure. His father’s rigidity moulded him into an introverted sibling causing him
    to hide at every first sign of tension.

    Much of his energy is spent trying to avoid feeling guilty or in dealing with guilt for his
    transgressions, in undoing his mistakes, or making retribution for them. Thus he has a ‘Basic
    Fear’ of being condemned and consequently, must always be right.
    His hidden complaint is: “I am right and it would be a better world if everyone listened to
    what I have to say and obeyed.”

    Nonetheless, he has a suppressed introverted side which he denies, hence, he presents an
    arrogant pompous facade to conceal it.

    The key defence mechanisms that he uses are repression, reaction, formation and displacement.
    His abstraction is that he thinks that everything falls on him to personally improve. He truly
    believes that if he does not improve things then no one else will. He therefore becomes
    increasingly fixated on organising and correcting everything and criticising anyone and anything
    that does not conform to the ideals as he defines them (those of his father figure).
    His deficiencies are that he is self-righteous and angry and this anger he projects onto others for
    their failure for not living up to the ideals (of his father) that he fails to meet. Colleagues higher
    on the will not tolerate and reject his dictatorial demeanor. The direct consequences are that this
    manifests for him criticism causing in him the rage (masochistic predicaments that he
    unconsciously desires). His average level of psychological and emotional health is negative -2,
    on ‘The Scale of Emotional Health’: Chronic Anger.

    Inevitable Consequences (worse case scenario)

    His inevitable consequences: He is fastened to a rail track of logical and rational thinking. He is
    concerned about the consequences of his actions, he persuades himself that things will be
    different if he makes exceptions in his own case. Nevertheless, he is not exempt from the
    consequences of his actions.

    Eventually, the blunders of his policies, will accumulate in his professional and personal crisis,
    that will encompass all of his contemporaries. Then he will become caught in the grips of his
    basic fear of being condemned. He will completely lose sight of his basic desire to be right. This
    will result in him exposing his true character, that of the classic ‘dictator’. The resulting
    neurosis will gradually bring about his downfall by contradicting himself, doing the very thing
    he condemns others for: Twisting reason into unreason, truths into lies, order into chaos,
    righteousness into rank perversion. End
