Gordon Brown was like a slippery eel on Marr this morning. When asked
what he knew about Northern Rock and when did he know it he slithered
and slid like his life depended on it. Is it really conceivable that he
didn't know months ago there was a problem with Northern Rock? Surely
the Treasury was informed that a comparatively small building society
had collared a fifth of the UK mortgage market by using dubious credit
According to today's Sunday Times they are still
at it, lending people six times their earnings. Why can't (or won't)
Gordon Brown given an honest answer to a simple question.
Interesting to note four Labour 'sleaze' stories in the papers today. Three of them involve the taxpayer footing the bill…
Mail on Sunday: Ed Balls & Yvette Cooper exploit second homes loophole to claim thousands from the taxpayer.
Former Brown aide Nicola Murphy part of a company charging £181,000 to
clients for services including tour of Number Ten & photo with
Independent on Sunday: Taxpayer to foot Labour Party legal bill over Cash for Honours
Sunday Times: John Hutton's wife accused over lobbying for contracts at her husband's department.
Citizens Juries are paid £75 each to vote in favour of the government.
and Senior Police officers get luxury cars to use on holidays and shopping trips, spending £500,000 from the police budget but claim to not have enough money to fund front line policing.
Uncle Joe Stalin Brown and his cronies actually believe that they are important, so important that they can use the government and our assets for their own personal use.
But like any good Stalinist leader, he closes down the debate. Of 120 contemporary resolutions submitted to conference by constituency parties and
unions, 96 were ruled out of order by the Conference Arrangements
Committee. He will only discuss subjects that he is in control of. Closing down debate even within his own party.
This kind of corrupt crap reminds me of Party politics in the old Soviet Union, where senior party members could use the Gum Store located in Red Square opposite the Kremlin, loaded with all the western goods that ordinary citizens could not have access to.
And people want to vote for these morons again !!!
