UK – ‘Wanker’ Brown, admitted that he had failed to see the economic crisis coming.
The Tosser also warned that Britain will not emerge from recession this year unless there is emergency action in the Far East, America and Europe as well.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics showed Britain had two successive quarters of negative growth. The economy shrank by 1.5 per cent in the final three months of 2008.
They the worst figures since 1980 when the country was grappling with high unemployment in the Thatcher era.
It lead to accusations from one of Mr Brown’s own MPs that Government failures meant Britain was now heading towards a depression.
But Mr Brown maintained that only the plans he was putting forward would help Britain battle the downturn. He said he was “using every weapon” to fight it.
In an interview with the BBC the Prime Minister refused to admit that Britain was living through “a bust” and repeatedly failed agree that he had not abolished “boom and bust” – the achievement he often cited while he was Chancellor.
But he said that the unique circumstances of the financial crisis made this situation completely different to any other recession, because it was not driven by high inflation and wages.
Hummn. We at the Bastard see it rather differently, with Gordon’ the Wanker’, having been chancellor of the exchequer before he became First Lord of the treasury AKA the prime Minister, he has had control of the economic control levers, for some 11 years, and as he has presided over
- the falsification of the inflation statistics
- 15% pa house price inflation
- the loss of control on the money supply
- the loss of our manufacturing sector
- running up a national debt of twice GDP
- and a runaway balance of trade deficit
He should have been aware that something was very badly wrong.
It is one thing for a government to lie to the electorate, we expect that, but it is a very stupid thing for a government to believe it’s own lies.
The trouble is that the independent media, and bloggers have been predicting this would happen for years. The Bastard has been predicting a 1929 for two and a half years.
If unqualified people like us can predict this happening, why can’t the oh so clever people who work for the government and the government controlled media?
