Charting Labour meltdown 2007-2010

“A weak currency arises from a weak economy which in turn is the result of a weak Government” – Gordon Brown.

Edmund Conway, on p 21 of today’s Telegraph, quotes Brown when he criticised the Tories in 1992 at the time of the disastrous Major/Clarke/Lament era…

Brown was right to say this then, and the quote is even more apposite today.

It’s just a pity he didn’t live by it, and has made even bigger mistakes than the Tories did then.

  3. HAHAHAHA! Classic!
    I’d love to see how Crash Gordon would react if this was quoted to him in an interview. He’d probably squirm his way out somehow.

      What are you talking about? I have just about had enough of the people of the world and the governemnts of the world blaming the banks and bankers.

      WHO dropped interest rates at the end of thE last recession and encouraged everyone to buy themesleves and the government out of recession on cheap credit THE GOVERNMENT (central banks did not decide interest rates by the way, whatever you may believe)

      WHO borrowed the money beyond their means due to the one of the most powerful emotions in the human body (greed), not wanting to miss out on a party they couldnt repay..(property) THE PEOPLE.

      WHO facilitated what the governement encouraged and the people demanded…BANKS

      YOU DO THE MATHS!!! if you can (most of the global population obviously can’t)
