Has the Emperor been chatting to old Pa Broon?

"But Mr Brown told the Guardian he was "not interested in gossip" and instead wanted to give his advice on preventing a future downturn like that of 2008."

Why didn't he prevent that one then?
 
#3
He's just trying to say something intelligent/controversial to promote his book, which will probably be less successful than Blair's.

Once again, the villain returns to the scene of the crime. I await Broon's rambling discourse on how to be a worse PM than Ramsay Macdonald with glee.

Of course he's right, we can always sell our gold reserves..... oops someone already did at a record low :- Goldfinger Brown’s £2 billion blunder in the bullion market - Times Online That was as low as $256 an ounce this article shows the price had risen to $685 an ounce in 2007 it is now $1411 and still rising :- Gold Price
He sold 400 tons at a loss to this country of $1155 an ounce! The man is an absolute moron almost criminally so! I wouldn't trust him to run an ice cream cart, never mind our countries economy!
Listening to his advice on the economy is akin to listening Pol Pot on running a well run free democracy!!

What's a loss of $20 Billion between friends?

In Brown-o-nomics®, $20 Billion is small change.

What's the quote? 'As a dog returneth to his vomit: so a fool returneth to his folly'. Sounds very apt...

Suppose it would have sorted the MOD out until the countries economy gets back on track proper.
True, but did not Brown infamously state it was his intention to 'take the armed forces down a peg or two'?

About the only think the cnut kept his word on. We've gone from being 'the borrowers' to 'the beggars' on Browns watch.

Already heavily discounted on Amazon.

Now the blurb says: "Long admired for his grasp of economic issues, Brown's book will be a work of paramount interest during these uncertain financial times and is sure to attract intense media coverage. The book offers a unique perspective on the financial crisis as well as innovative ideas that will help create a sound economic future......"

Oh I so hope he reads these comments, however sadly the deluded idiot will probably think its praise, few men have lived to be so derided in their own lifetime!!
Just out of interest when are all the party faithfull (Ashie, Whet etc) coming to sing his praises like the good little fellow travellers they are ?

Parliament? Gordon Brown?? Errr....

The greatest misjudgement in Britain's recent history is to have allowed this awful, awful man to rise beyond being a back-bencher representing a Scottish constituency.

What is even more astonishing is that Cameron did not win the General Election by a land-slide to beat all land-slides.

Cameron's mistake: agreeing to take part in the fatuous, facile televised 'debates'.

Now, instead of the psychotic miss-fit: the inept oaf Brown, we have a 'government' ham-strung by the inclusion of travesties of political judgement such as: Cable (so wise: after the event) and other assorted non-entities.

Call a General Election Cameron. Why should I say this? So that I can vote: UKIP!

Do you think?

I haven't seen an advance copy of Broon's scribblings but I can give you a quick synopsis:-

1 It wasn't my fault

2 Evil bankers made me do it

3 The whole world went t1ts up. (Except for Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Korea, South Africa, India, China, Canada and every other country where the banks are properly regulated).

4. The Tories are to blame because they didn't tell me not to do it.

5. It wisnae me.

6. It's George Bush's fault because he said securitized, sub-prime debt instruments were OK.

7. It's not my fault

8. Nothing to do with me guv.

9. I was abroad at a global warming conference when it happened.

10. Gizza job.

There was a fad for shifting Tony Blair's memoirs to the "True Crime" section in book shops. No doubt Broon's book will be shifted to the Comedy section.
