What the fuck?

This piece of crap from our monocular Gobblin' King needs more attention, but I must away to Cambridge so I shall simply make one comment at present.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said the current global financial crisis has "laid bare the weaknesses of unbridled free markets".

What fucking "unbridled free markets"? There wasn't a free market in banking, and there hasn't been for many, many decades (and possibly ever): apart from anything else, the very goods that they deal in—currency—is state controlled. The state has always tried to interfere in banking, and those interferences produce distortions.

Banking. Is. Not. A. Free. Market.

why, has that been regulated too?

What a mendacious and gormless shitbag Brown is. The banking sector wasn't just bridled. Brown stuck FSA sized blinkers on it as well.

Its a sound bite from a bluffer. Sounds goodish right until you critically examine the meaning.

The Daily Mail is also pushing the Free Trade Doesn't Work line.

Its will interesting to see if the public believe it - personally, I think they will - I only agree with Brown when it comes to not underestimating the stupidity of the Great British Public!

The comments on Gordo's piece in the Telegraph are most enlightening. Even the left wing posters hate him.

Of course what Gordon Brown really meant is the crisis had "laid bare the weaknesses of unbridled TORY markets".

Naturally, the super new improved, whiter than white, Labour markets will be ever-so much more cute 'n cuddly.

To be honest, the guy's an idiot. We should just stop listening to the fool.

That's because most of the smart people have seen where this government is heading and pissed off abroad...
