'Daily Mail' Friday 2 January 2009 "Labour's boom years were down to 'luck' rather than Gordon Brown's stewardship of the economy, Tony Blair has said. Replying to a question after giving a lecture at Yale University in Connecticut, Mr Blair said: 'It is true that we had ten years of record growth when I was prime minister. 'I have, unfortunately, come to the conclusion that it was luck.' The Tories seized on Mr Blair's remarks as an 'extraordinary admission'. Shadow Chancellor George Osborne said: 'Tony Blair has exposed the damning truth about Gordon Brown's chancellorship. 'The good times were all down to luck.' Mr Blair's spokesman said the comment had been a 'self-deprecating joke' and the former PM 'remains proud of the record he and Gordon Brown established'. Mr Blair has studiously avoided commenting on domestic politics since leaving Downing Street." Wow! Stating the obvious ain't he! Something we would have never guessed - Oh dearie moi!! Well, well. Something many folks either knew or guessed at for years. So we now know from the 'Horses Mouth' (Or its backside more like it), Pa Gollum Broone is just a chancer. He is NO different now he is PRIME MENTALIST... just bumbling along from one crisis to another -- "What Crisis?" we hear him say.... "I have saved the World...!" me mutters.... "Flabber my Ghasts. Pa Broone wants me to be his Economic Advisor!"
