  1. That’s what you get for being a friend of Tony, the “pretend Socialist”. You know what they say, everything will come back to haunt you in the end.

    From Gordon, the lifelong Labour Party member, but not any more!!!!

  2. I really am not up to speed enough on British politics to have anything substantive or interesting to say about Gordon Brown.

    I am just commenting in order to tell you that I wish more people used the word “gormless” — it’s one of my favorites! 🙂

  3. The problem as I see it (and, knowing only a little about the economy, my opinions are to be taken with a pinch of salt) is that Brown was excellent at exploiting the boom for all it was worth and rubbish at dealing with the natural aftermath of that. I’ve worked in finance for the last six years, and we’ve well and truly milked the cash cow for all it was worth, chucking loans at people who quite clearly had no intention or ability to pay us back, falsely inflating an already over-inflated market. Brown must have been aware the banks were behaving this way, though the blame for this behaviour can be placed more on global trends than individual governments (ie, they were doing it in the States, so we did it).
    While I can’t wait for Brown to leave (and you’re right about him looking more and more like Nixon) I’d like to know what any of the main opposition leaders have to offer in terms of a solution. Cameron’s very good at letting Brown crash the car, but not very good at offering ideas on how to steer the thing in the first f**king place!!

  4. Gordon (the one who is definitely not a moron!): So true. This whole mess was bound to happen. He had to know that… unless he’s more incompetent than I thought!

    jimsmuse: Yay! Let’s hear it for “gormless”! Great word, isn’t it? One of my favourites, too 🙂

    David: You’re dead right, mate. This crisis didn’t just happen; it was allowed to happen. You could see it. I could see it. So could Gordon? Yup.

    The alternatives are admittedly depressing. Like I said to Will, they should let me do it. “No, you’re not getting any more money, so fuck off!” What do you think? 😉

    rain: That’s probably sweaty, pale and hairy thighs, I would imagine. 😉

  5. The similarity to Nixon is disturbing. It took dynamite to get Nixon out of office and I suspect that Gordo will be even more durable.

    A great opportunity for washing Labour’s dirty linen.
