Gordon Brown to become a wealth creation advisor.

#1
"Gordon Brown is to take his first major corporate role since leaving parliament by joining one of the world’s largest investment businesses.

The former prime minister is to join Pimco, a California-based asset management company, as a wealth creation adviser. Andrew Balls, the brother of Mr Brown’s former aide and minister, Ed Balls, is Pimco’s chief investment officer for global fixed income. The company is now part of Germany’s giant insurer, Allianz."

"Right, Mr Co, may I call you Pim? Here's the plan. You have a load of assets. I've no idea what they are but I know you keep hold of them because the price keeps going up. So, what you do is, sell some of them off so you've actually got money rather than assets. The thing is, if you tell everyone a few weeks in advance that you're going to sell them off, the price will become much more affordable for them and you won't have those nasty assets cluttering up your books. Just money. Make sense?"

We're getting a new Chief Exec in May and it is taking that long because they have to do a thing called "due diligence" on him to see if he is a "fit and proper person" to run an insurance company.

Who the hell did due diligence on Gordon?

Have you ever wondered how and why politicians and other 'big' people seem to be a bit thick when it comes to things which seem obvious to us shopfloor types?
That's the point. Gordy doesn't need to impress us any more (not that he ever did impress us enough to vote him in anyway). All he has to do is impress the kind of people who will be impressed by someone who made it to the top job in a G8 (then) country.

Don't be silly. Gordon knows all about creating wealth. Just print more money. Same as Robert Mugabe.
