Ok, as you all know, the No1 task confronting the Bolivian dancing queen, Osbourne, when he came to power was to reduce the percentage of debt as expressed against GDP. Debt at that time was £811.3bn, 55% of GDP. So 2.5 years in just how successful has the swazer loving bungler been? Has debt
1. Fallen to £500bn, representing a massive tick, towards Ozzies economic brilliance.
2. On course to be completely paid back by the end of the next but one election, representing that yes it took a while, but we got there eventually, or
3. Oh shit, what the fuck am I doing debt is now £1111.4bn or £1.1 trillion or 71% of GDP, ooerrrr Dave, Dave sort it out I haven't got a clue, pass me some Bolivian dancing dust I have just got to get me out of this. Dave why don't you appoint, the grumpy old men off the Muppets to run the economy? Coz we've got our own Muppet in charge of the job.
Well there you go, for all those of you who thought that Broon was a toss-pot, arn't you glad that you voted incompetence at the last election?
The answer oh 3, not that you needed me to tell you that eh.
Suck it up you Tossers coz I didn't vote for any of them.

As this as been posted in the NAAFI I'm sorry but i cant post a sensible reply!

I personally blame Jarrod & The Snail who both probably voted Tory, but will deny it all!
Yes we are in the shit, it does not matter who's in power, Tories, Labour UKIP or OMRLP.
UK plc is still in the red big time!
We could tax the rich more, stop paying benefit to the work shy/chavs & bring back the window tax!
Oh and why do MP's get to retire early but the rest of us work till we are 67 or die?

well once we let the scots go it alone we can lump 500bn off on them until we have to have them back again when they realise its cold outside. that would help.

if you want to stimulate the economy then you have to stop coming up with white elephant projects or pouring money into the banks and give money to the people instead. you can print fiat money which doesn't go on the books as debt and let the people pay off their cards and overdrafts which will get them spending again. more and more 'experts' are suggesting this radical step instead of quantative easing which is destroying savings and share prices.

the banks don't give a fuck but letting the people pay off their debts will cost them billions in lost turnover so they will have to start lending money again to make it up.

I would love to see your harrowing tale on Newsnight thirty years from now, watching them describe the tragic battle you've had since massive head injuries left you with Locked In Syndrome and utterly incapable of communicating with anyone else and how your greatest wish is just that you could die and end your suffering.

Breaking news...

...politicians are totally incompetent wankers who are only good at fucking the entire country. As the septics would say, "Who'd a thunk it?"

You read it here first folks.

But no matter what you may say, the fact is that we are doomed.
The best guess, is that we should all hang on for grim death, and vote the barstewards out. Mind you hanging the pair of them would be so self satisfying.

Plus, Mars Bars were a lot smaller in the seventies and their wrappers were made of paper.

Fast forward 40 years and you are nothing but a cunt.

I was outraged and ashamed after hearing about some of Robbeaus's latest hastily mounted campaigns. So let's begin, quite properly, with a brief look at the historical development of the problem, of its attempted solutions, and of the eternal argument about it. Need I point out that Robbeaus takes plagiarism to bed with him at night and snuggles up to it as if it were a big, fuzzy teddy bear? Much of what he writes is excruciatingly hard to read. If Robbeaus actually wants to write something meaningful, he should stick to the basics: Declare an argument; make supporting statements related to the topic; and draw a conclusion that isn't off on some wild tangent from the original hypothesis. For instance, rather than make the factually unsupported claim that five-crystal orgone generators can eliminate mind-control energies that are being radiated from secret, underground, government facilities, it would be better to argue that Robbeaus has been known to conjure up dirt against his fellow human beings. That always spurs on his hangers-on to hammer away at the characters of all those who will not help him perpetuate the nonsense known technically as the analytic/synthetic dichotomy. That, in turn, encourages Robbeaus to reduce history to an overdetermined, wireframe sketch of what are, in reality, complex, dynamic events. This cycle inevitably, inexorably ratchets upwards and outwards until at last some self-aggrandizing champion of deceit, lies, theft, plunder, and rapine winds up reducing human beings to the status of domestic animals.

Robbeaus's reinterpretations of historic events reek of racialism. I use the word "reek" because Robbeaus's monographs are not our only concern. To state the matter in a few words, if Robbeaus could have one wish, he'd wish for the ability to convert houses of worship into houses of libertinism. Then, people the world over would be too terrified to acknowledge that Robbeaus keeps saying that irreligionism is a be-all, end-all system that should be forcefully imposed upon us. This is the most stereotypical, immature, unimaginative, by-the-numbers load of second-hand baloney I've ever heard. The truth is that we should agree on definitions before saying anything further about Robbeaus's insipid recommendations. For starters, let's say that "barbarism" is "that which makes Robbeaus yearn to rebrand local churches as faith-based emporia teeming with impulse-buy items."

Robbeaus is just trying to pick a fight. That's why he says that the majority of yawping, hidebound philosophasters are heroes, if not saints. Remember, though, that just because I have one view of an issue and Robbeaus has a different view does not in itself mean that Robbeaus is a duplicitous beggar and an acrimonious, pot-valiant liar. But when Robbeaus says that free speech is wonderful as long as you're not bashing him and the splenetic swindlers in his tammanyism movement, he's simply lying. That's why I allege that I don't care what others say about Robbeaus. He's still misinformed, benighted, and he intends to engulf the world in a dense miasma of quislingism. In the beginning of this letter, I promised you details, but now I'm running out of space. So here's one detail to end with: I wouldn't waste my time trying to reach out for things with permanence, things beyond wealth and comfort and pleasure, things that have real meaning if Robbeaus's ruses weren't parroted by so many polyloquent pamphleteers.
Can't be bothered to read all that, but have a 'like' for your neat typing.
