Britain Best Placed to Withstand Recession?

In before Whet! :twisted:


ETA: The basic advantage the Germans and French have over Britain? They both still have manufacturing bases that actually export stuff. Unless Gordon is going to export chavs and benefit claimants I think our export potential is limited.

Britain as a trading hub dependant on service based industry is far more exposed to global recession than France with its agriculture and Germany with its manufacturing.
However this is just an indicator, not a confirmation. Nobody at the Borse today thinks Germany is out of the woods yet. Watch the DAX in Sept (after the holiday season) for a better indicator.

In his final months of self-appointed power, the Brown creature is operating a scorched earth policy. That is doing as much damage to the country as possible before his forthcoming inglorious defeat.

13 years of the Blair/Marxist tyranny have just about destroyed what was left in 1997.

Is Teakozy out on the presidential balcony throwing hand fulls of euros overhimself while 'Mr Boombastic' plays across Paris?
I think Nick is too busy keeping in shape for his missus to worry about boring stuff like politics.... :D

She's a vote-winner (with me at least):



Not even if she was naked and covered in chocolate:

Some bloke running the hedge fund organisation said last night on Channel 4 that the UK would probably be back to normal way before anyone else in Europe. He was the bloke who said (on Channel 4 News) that we were in resession way before anyone else.

Did he say how long it would take for the tax-payer to pay the government off, compared to everyone else?

Feck me - what an economic genius he is :roll:

I have not meet a single economist with a different view. But that is not the whole picture (did he not explain the debt bit?).

Not bush, they're winnets.

She suffers from them and she's quite used to an annoying piece of poo hanging round her arse.

I thought that was a bit harsh on Sarah Brown, fair enough she is not attractive and she is overweight and probably has a smelly box, but you should not have a go at her just because her old man is a dribbling mong!

As for the recession I didnt realise that Brown had finally admitted that we were in one, I bet it is someone elses fault!!

She looks like a bloke!




Although given the alleged preferences of her old mans in the past, it's easy to see why he was attracted to her.

Can we please remember that this is Arrse? We should be saying "we should export all those bloody immigrants that are taking our jobs AND AT THE SAME TIME stealing our benefits that we have earned the right to by being born here etc. etc. etc." before we turn on our chavs and benefit scroungers surely?

We should all be paying for them all, indefinately. We should teach everyone that the state will provide, for everyone, for eternity and that we should not have to work as property is theft.

Community first and foremost, and if you aren't a communist, you have no place in our communes.
