Gordon Brown has lost his tiny fucking mind

Gordon Brown: mad Mad McMad, the Mad Prime Madman of Madland. In short, the cunt is fucking barking.

The Gobblin' King seems to have lost what small spark of sanity he ever possessed, as the Conservative Party Reptile points out.
How can he do it with a straight face? Not only did Gordon Brown say that national debt was 37% - a distortion that would make Horatio Bottomley blush - prior to a Pre-Budget Report that will probably see total British public debt rise to over 50% not including PFI or public sector pension liabilities, but he had the effrontery to describe Conservative plans as “an unfunded tax cut”.

This is Gordon Brown, a man who has been borrowing as though his life depended on it. Not only have any tax cuts made by this one-eyed shit all been funded on the never-never, but a substantial chunk of his core spending plans are absolutely fucking reliant on borrowed cash.

But, of course, the Tory plans, inadequate as they are, are actually partially funded. It is Brown's economic machinations that are largely unfunded—but putting our grandchildren in hock is OK, apparently.

But the monocular bastard's pronouncements get yet more bizarre.
Brown tied himself into a bizarre knot on this point. Having first criticised the Tories’ for their “unfunded” tax cut, he then stated that it was in fact funded, and that this was a bad thing.

In a reference to the Tories, he says a funded tax cut is not a fiscal stimulus (because the fact that it's funded means that it is not putting extra money into the economy). In other words, Brown is making a virtue of the fact that he's favouring unfunded tax cuts.

So what is it? Are unfunded tax cuts a good thing, a fiscal stimulus to help the economy? Or a bad thing, proof of the Tories’ lack of seriousness? Or, in truth does Brown not have the faintest idea?

This intellectual Titan does not, of course, have a fucking clue: the man is a dangerous fucking lunatic, and a cunt to boot. The Bobblin' King should be sectioned now, for the good of all of us: section the fucker before he does himself some harm—or, of course, before the British people wake up and save Gordon the trouble of harming himself...

According to the film tag, "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist": of course, the greatest trick that this one-eyed devil ever pulled was convincing anyone at all that he had the first fucking clue about economics.

Fucking hell, but I loathe him so very much.

FFS! All this arm waving by our provincial barons is pathetic.

And to think millions of people will still vote for them in 2010 is, distinctly dispiriting...

It is simply bizarre, and yet the Tories seem to get wrong-footed by these weird claims every time. Wake up Dave.

That's good work by the CPR, especially this bit:

a funded tax cut is not a fiscal stimulus ...[etc]

People get much too hung about about flows of money. The point is, all these two or three million quangista we have in the UK are hugely expensive, costing £100 billion per annum and add no value whatsoever, if they aren't directly destroying it.

By sacking two or three million of 'em and cutting taxes accordingly (let's do VAT and Employer's NIC first, and double the personal allowance, giving us a flattish income/corporation tax of 30% or so) does not, on a static basis, put a single penny 'into the economy' of course.

But if those three million drones start doing something a leedle bit useful or productive, that's what creates the boost to the economy.

My auntie, for example, believes in the death penalty (for all sorts of crimes actually), thinks the unemployed should be made to pick up dog shit for their money and nudges and points every time she sees a black person.
Liberal left she aint!

But she votes Labour - because she always has.

This is one of the problems with democracy - they let just anyone vote!

For a chappie with a degree in History and a political PhD, where exactly did Brown get his economic credentials from?

I would wager being Shadow Chancellor was a means to an end. The end being power. He must know he is staggeringly uncharismatic. He must know he can easily be found lacking in economic knowledge. But he must also know the adage 'he who pays the piper calls the tune', and we've been dancing to his tune since 1997.

He promised a bonfire of the quangos. He counts things twice and thrice. He treats wages as a capital item. If he ran a business this way the Revenue would stick a red hot poker up his fundament. Perhaps that is what he is waiting for...

If I may simplify that a bit more, imagine a free market island, where there are fishermen and coconut growers and wine makers and so on, and they all produce as much as they can be bothered trade happily by barter.

The neighbouring island is Nulabour island, where a quarter of the adult population make a living from measuring, recording, controlling, planning, regulating, meddling, or being single mothers etc, all paid for by the fishermen etc handing over one third of what they produce.

You don't need to be an economics genius to work out which island is going to be better off.

Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, "Governmentium" (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called "morons", which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called "peons". Since "Governmentium" has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every action with which it comes into contact.

A minute amount of "Governmentium" can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from four days to four years to complete. "Governmentium" has a normal half-life of 2-6 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, "Governmentium's" mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming "isodopes". This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that "Governmentium" is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, "Governmentium" becomes "Administratium", an element that radiates just as much energy as "Governmentium" since it has half as many "peons" but twice as many "morons".

Where are William Hague & Kenneth Clarke when you need 'em (obviously keep Clarke away from the Foreign office or Brussels).

Cameron and Osborne are such complete wankers that it would seem that, with the help of the sychophantic assistance of the Beeb, they make Brown look competent to the general electorate.

Jesus - surely anyone with half a brain and a GCSE in woodwork can see Brown is the political equivalent of a shoplifting junkie with a credit card fixation..

Brown may not be charismatic but some of your old fashioned views on how an economy should operate are really outdated.
Guess what, the whole system has always been based on debt. As much as I'd like to tell you how things work these days, there are people who actually want to know, and they're the ones who deserve the time of day.
It's because of people like you that some old fashioned gits keep clinging to this old concept of saving up their debt slips for everything. It's like santa clause, it's a nice idea but it only works one fucking day of the year.
If you don't want to say thanks to the only man on earth who tried to prevent this crisis before it happened then thats fine. But go out and learn and bother to understand how this world works before you start criticising it.
