... it must be another piece of advice from Gordon fucking Brown.
"Only government can make the markets work in the public interest and not their own interest," Mr Brown told the Scottish Labour conference in Dundee.
Shut your fucking face, you devious fucking cunt: the only interest governments will force markets to work in is the interests of the politicians. And if you think that the politicians work in the public interest, you are the stupidest, most ignorant fucktard on this planet. And a twat to boot.
He added: "We believe that markets need not just money men but morals, that being fair matters far more than being laissez-faire and that banks must always serve the public, not just serve themselves."
You... You... I... Aaaaargh! Markets don't have morals, you fucknuts. A market is simply what happens when a collection of entities come together to trade—they do not have morals any more than a coven has morals. The only morals that a market has are the morals of those individuals participating in that market—and they are not homogenous, even though you stinking, corrupt, brain-washing, bastard politicians have been trying to achieve that aim for some time.
And as for banks serving the public rather than themselves... Have you never read Adam Smith, you thick cunt? Never heard of the invisible hand? Shall I quote the relevent passage to you, you pig-ignorant moron?
It is not from the benevolence of the butcher the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity, but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages.
Get it? No, I fear not. How about I bash it into your hideous, deformed, twitching fucking face with this utterly moral-free hammer?
In particular, Mr Brown wants regulators to insist that banks take a more "prudent" approach to capital reserves, setting aside more money during years of growth to protect them against possible slumps in the future.
Really. First, let me quote Timmy on what happened in the past.
Well, yes, but there’s still some small voice at the back of my head telling me that it was Brown, as Chancellor, who changed the tax laws thus discouraging the banks from "over provisioning".
Second, may I just say, "physician, heal thyself, you stinking cunt." How dare you lecture anyone—anyone!—on saving money in the good times against the bad?
Over the good years, you have taken our money—the product of our toil—and pissed it up the wall on buying votes and financing your pet projects; and now, when it has all gone tits up—something that you maintained would never happen again (not that anyone believed you then, for it was vainglorious hubris)—you have borrowed insane amounts of money—our future toil and that of our sons and daughters—to shore up your crumbling edifice and your waning popularity.
You fucking disgust me. And, also, I suspect that you are, in fact, certifiably mental; all of this stuff that you are railing against—you did this, you fuckwit! Only a madman could possibly airbrush his own history in such a way and believe that everyone else had forgotten it too.
Britain's Financial Services Authority will next month outline proposals for more "prudential regulation".
Really. Is that the sound of the bolt sliding home long after the thoroughbreds have fled into the dark night? Yes, I think it may be.
