Downing Street : Biscuitgate Never Happened…

Is Brown Bonkers?Downing Street is now insisting that Gordon never saw the dozen Biscuitgate questions during the Mumsnet livechat.  Being unable to see anything that isn’t in headline size letters, the questions were instead put to him verbally by Mumsnet staff who also typed the answers as well.  They allegedly didn’t want to waste the Prime Mentalist’s time on chocolate finger issues.

On Saturday they said on the Downing Street  website that Gordon isn’t depressed:

Depression

Why the hell shouldn’t he be depressed? Unemployment is nearly 3 million, the public finances are a disaster, the economy is bust and the Labour Party is facing electoral annihilation. He would have to be a madman to be happy.  Next they will be claiming he didn’t say he liked to jump out of bed to the sound of the Artic Monkeys in the mornings…

      Think the T.A. U-Turn was a bigger story myself and “biscuitgate” was barely picked up at all by the national media at any point, but what the hey!

      Brown’s a ditherer who’s every waking hour is haunted by his colossal ditering mistake in not calling the snap election in christmas 07 when he would have won.

    Sir eat a lot says:

    An elderly man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite biscuits wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed.

    Leaning on the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With laboured breath, he leaned against the door-frame, gazing into the kitchen.

    Were it not for death’s agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table
    were literally hundreds of his favourite biscuits, freshly baked.

    Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his devoted Aussie wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

    Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in crumpled posture.

    His aged and withered hand trembled towards a biscuit at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked by his wife with a spatula………….

    ‘F#ck off’ she said, ‘they’re for the funeral.’

    have to disagree tunnocks wafers and the new dark chocolate are the bizz but dark chocholate hob nobs (very tricky to locate) are the only thing that stops me from wagnerian thoughts and lifestyle.

    Ruin did a radio interview in bradford , one caller asked him if recession was over , after spitting out a series of 4 iniatives , he said he would like to think so and we may see some growth next year ! . So thats a definitely maybe then , hardly some great outreach of light and comfort .

    the crucial spending review was denied , treasury has put out little more than a small stream of wee , and ruin thought it best parliament should have a massive holiday half hoping figs would be better when they returned .
    i mean hardly what you would define as concern .

    The ruin proclaims he has staved off the depression ! Cw wants to know how can we tell , I mean would it be a depression without the stimulous ?? , does it not really want reframing as i staved off depression using your money to cover up for my wonk socialist ecnomics and just created the longest recession and what looks like a protacted period of less than 2% or possibly 1% growth , with a massive debt that will explode as soon as inflation , devlauation works as other economies come out of recession .

    he said he would re pay the debt in 4 years , yet has not published anything form the month ago he said it , hes just shuffling along . he might be bonkers , certainly knows how to waste money in any weather .

    depends on your view , but i think the 18 months he has wasted (2yrs when election comes round) will be viewd as the actions of ditherer gambling everyones future wealth on a stupid political outcome . i am hacked off that so much money has been wasted on operation sell uk off to the EU with out a vote , let alone some of the vanity projects that have opend and then closed after millions being spent or schools where it costs £30 to change light bulb .

    it doesnt look good for labours entry in the hsitory books , gerry mandered parliament, secret debts in state owned banks , MPs and investagative journalism gagged by stasi legal set up . then theres the whole cast of charctures of the third way (turd way) who were paid to churn out cock waffle to make it all sound normal .

    I just hope charges can be brought , the govt backed debt corpses are located £500bn worth of debt seems a crime in need of a punishment more appropiate than an appology .

    see how PMQs goes ,

    Fuck me, is this what they obsess about in the Fuehrer Bunker?
    Fucking refuting biscuit based stories of Gordon’s Huntishness?, great job Gordo.
    When he was a schemin’ and a plannin’ to oust the Blair murderer, who knew he would be at the forefront of a fightback against those Tory scum at Mumsnet? KUUUUUUNT

    It’s immensely refreshing however to see his hoped for ‘Gordo’s saved the TA!’ stories, reading as Gordo U turns on his TA cuts’

    How Gordon and his gang of vermin in the bunker must despise the British military, especially the Army.
    These filth must view the soldiers as cry babies who refuse to toe the line.
    How they must loathe the Tory Generals for wanting 50 million pound heavy lift helicopters, or 1.5 million pound V shaped hull mine protected patrol vehicles.

    Dont those cowards know they are diverting precious financial resources from his clientele?
    The workshy, the scroungers, the morbidly obese halfwits, the forty year olds who ride mobility carts, the ruffian troglodytes who know their rights, but could give two shits about their responsibilities…these are the people the right honourable gentlemen entered politics for.
