In Praise of Gordon Brown

Gordy's attempts to appear human, with his personal interviews with creeps like Piers Morgan, is rather sad and pathetic. - it's just not his nature. Afraid Flash Gordon can't match Flash Harry (Dave) in the personality stakes, anymore than he could match Flash Tony; so forget the sympathy vote Gordy and get on with appearing to be "the safe pair of hands at the wheel" or better "the devil we know". :shock:

Under Labour 1964-70, the stock market?s real return (adjusted for inflation) went down by 13 per cent. Under Labour 1974-79 (which included Denis Healey?s grovelling to the IMF), it went down by 11.5 per cent. Under Mr Brown, the London stock market?s decline in real return is more than 20 per cent.

 

Safe??? :shock::shock::shock:

And people who's pensions rely on them, and companies who rely on inward investment to expand and provide jobs, and income, for the working man. :wink::wink::wink:

As I'm sure you realise Obs, companies of all shapes and size who want to raise money to improve/expand/diversify their business do so by selling shares. Without the stock market to facilitate this everything would stagnate. So a healthy stock market is a sign of a healthy economy. Even Red China has a booming stock market helping its booming economy :wink::wink:

If you're looking for the new South Sea Bubble, look no further than the artificial carbon trading market which has been set up using taxpayers money and is booming on receipts from higher costs on everything from energy to food. There are people such as Al Gore making billions from this totally false scare driven market and we are the fools paying into it :evil::evil::evil::twisted:

Are you blaming Mr Brown or the Bankers who incidentally oil the wheels of your beloved stock market :wink:

 

"Prudence" Brown without a doubt. He was the man in charge of the money levers for 10 long years plus, and was always ready to receive the plaudits when things were, apparently, going well. Now the wheels have fallen off it's all someone else's fault. :roll::roll:

 

As for it being "my" beloved stock market, well it's the system that countries of every political persuasion from far right to far left seem to prefer. It's just strange people like you that don't want it, or perhaps it's just that the rest of the world is out of step with you :lol::lol::lol:

All it proves is that life is a bit of a lottery, and we all have to take our chances sometimes. If that doesn't suit then you can always emigrate to a planet that is perfect, if you can find someone to buy shares in your interplanetary travel scheme to fund it for you...................... :shock::shock::lol::lol::lol:

Society based on a lottery :shock: How daft is that Asperity, if Communism had had the same money injected into it when it was failing would it have failed. Communism was allowed to fail, While we keep a system as Asperity says based on a lottery.

 

Trouble is Asperity Lotteries always have more looser's than winners :!:

There you go again LtKije, putting words into my mouth :roll::roll: I didn't say society was based on a lottery or anything like it. I said that life is a bit of a lottery. We aren't clones (but there's plenty of clowns :wink: ) so of course there are winners and losers. The aim of society should be to take care of the losers, but a lot of the losers aren't willing to help themselves, but rather sit and whinge about how unfair life is and how something should be done to make everything better. Recognise anyone you know? :wink::wink:

 

Communism failed, not through lack of money but through the fact that it could never succeed due to the fact that we are human beings who don't all have a common purpose like ants or bees. :roll:
