Labour’s Missing Economic Genius

Labour are running round like headless chickens this morning. Alastair Darling has had a lie-in, attack dogs like Liam Byrne are nowhere to be seen, while Harman and the leadership candidates are all trying to get a look in. The airwaves have no-one of economic authority to hand from the opposition benches.

Foolishly they are really overlooking one MP who could coordinate and streamline their attacks and message. Where is the man who “abolished boom and bust”? The “best man for the job”? The man who kept debt low, who invested for the future, who fought for fairness and Britain every day. The man who “made all the right calls”, the man of “substance”.

Where is “the great clunking fist” and why isn’t he “getting on with the job” the taxpayers pay him to do?

    Perhaps they won’t let Brown out of the asylum – not even for a day.

    If Labour can cut without the world ending (or whatever they accuse the Tories of), doesn’t that suggest what they plan to cut is worthless, and that they knew it all along?

    Whoever it was on these blogs ages ago that compared them to Hitler standing around and telling people how best to clear the bodies had it spot on.

    Labour’s people of “economic authority” are staying well out of it because they know full well that they can’t defend the indefensible without telling huge porkies (not that it’s ever stopped them before). They know they got it spectacularly wrong; even the pachyderms are feeling some guilt.

    The top of Beachy Head is quite safe – it’s arrival at the bottom that tends to cause the problems.

    Lord Grytpype-thynne says:

    Has anyone started a book on whether or not Brown will turn up tto the Commons today for the first time since he was sworn in as an MP?He is clearly “frit” as the Lady would have said and the continuing scandal of Brown taking an MP’s salary for doing nothing is a stain on what remains of our democracy.

    I hope his behaviour is alluded to today in the Chamber

    Isn’t Prezza Labour’s Economic Genius? The script for Jim in The Royale Family (on BBC 1 last night) was uncannily like Prezza – was it written for him and is he moonlighting the part in a beard?

  23. 23
    Genghiz the Kahn says:

    Is he opening a Sure Start Centre in Scotland?

    Is he standing up in Westminster to defend his achivements of rising national debt, an increasing structural budget deficit, rapid growth in unemployment, upwardly creeping inflation, stagnant or anaemic economic growth?

    The man with the moral compass, has vanished, and with the complicity of his friends in the media and the Labour Party is allowed to avoid getting the flak for his appalling stewardship of the economy. This Hunt wanted the power and the glory of office but vanishes when he has to accept responsibiltiy for the wasteland he has created.

    He leaves the responsibity to a bunch of useless finger puppets to offer platitudes to Al Beeb and the MSM. None of whom will bother to ask Why is Gordon not in the Commons? When the Daily Politics asked where is Gordon? It was treated as a joke item.

    Brown may be depressed after his collosal defeat and removal from office, but the current economic mess is his responsibility. But only 8 weeks ago Al Beeb and the Terrys at the Guardian wanted Brown to save the UK from The Tories. Says alot for them.

    His economic legacy is minimal and he won’t stand up to try and defend his decisions which brought Labour down. I would be surprised if any town or city renamed roads after Dr James Gordon Brown, and I doubt that any sculptor will be commissioned to fashion a statue for a plinth, unless it is fashioned as a warning to us all.

    Contempt.

    Gordon Brown

    A more fun game is watching David Millibanana implode with hyperbolic rage over every tiny change. He really is like an arrogant 17yr old who thinks he understands everything, everyone else is stupid and if he could just be dictator for a few years it would all be ok. When the loan for the nuclear jobs in Sheffield was scrapped he almost had a meltdown – ranting that it was economic vandalism. The guy is always going well over the top.

    A friend of Mr Brown said: ‘Gordon is doing a lot of writing on economics and other issues. It could lead to a book or a series of lectures or speeches.’

    yvette & ed, millibanana, harperson, balls and the BBC says:

    Gordon was an outstanding chancellor and PM who brought prosperity and saved the NHS and the world. The economic problems were caused by Americans and Thatcher. In fact Brown managed to decrease debt. The problems being faced now are entirely the Tories’ fault since they are the government. Just like Thatcher in 1979 they don’t realise they have inherited a paradise and any changes they make are 100% their fault.

  31. 31
    It's George's Day says:

    Osborne, lest we forget, did exactly the same deal as Brown and Blair and 5 years ago made Cameron swear to make him his number 2 and the Chancellor in return for George not standing for the Conservative Leadership.

    I don’t think he’s quite so pleased with that arrangement now.

    Johnny says says:

    “The man who kept debt low”

    Which of course is doublespeak much beloved by Brown. He borrowed billions every year after 2001 when we should have been running a surplus instead but because it was lower than the 3% of GDP the Maastricht treaty recommends he thought he could get away with it.

    Some staff would say this would be the best outcome for him, but as medical professional, I will insist on him continuing to wear the straitjacket.
    Treatment consists of daily connections to the main voltage, and he is booked in for a Pre-Frintal Lobotomy.

    Alas Brown fooled a lot of people for a very long time.

    He has to be held accountable for his actions, not only on finance but with regard to the wars that are taking hundreds our our brave soldier’s lives and also for inflicting barbaric Taleban type politics on the British – mainly English people who suffered under his Jacqui Jackboots and his clunking fist interference in the everyday lives of the population of this country.

    Yes, I am.

    No, you’re not. We won’t make any progress until you accept that.

    There’s nothing to accept. I’m prime minister.

    Remember that little roleplay we did concerning Mr Purcell?

    I don’t know who you’re talking about.

    Yes, you do, Mr Brown. He’s…

    I said. Call me prime minister.

    You do know Mr Purcell.

    I know not of whom you speak.

    We spent so long on that roleplay until you acknowledged you do know him. Come now, let’s not take a step back. You did so well on that roleplay, we were all pleased with you.

    But it was all a lie. Brown had run the country into the ground a long time ago. Clegg was the only person who could get Brown out of Number 10, and he did it so cleverly. Of course he will never be forgiven.

    Labours problem is their leadership has failed to deal with the issue of their economic failure. They are on the wrong side of the argument over cuts.

    This was clearly visible on TV last night. On Dispatches the studio audience voted for cutting middle class welfare but on Newsnight Labour’s spokesman was defending it. For a party of the poor that is a very strange position to be in, and shows a total lack of strategy by their leadership. No wonder nobody wants to represent them on TV today.

    Instead, the former Labour leader – who was Chancellor under Tony Blair before he moved to Number 10 – will be carrying out a number of engagements in his Scottish constituency.

    While new Chancellor George Osborne was preparing to make his first Budget, Mr Brown was being quizzed by pupils at a Fife high school on Tuesday morning.

    Typically, Guido and acolytes reduce the whole budget issue to trivia. It’s not about personalities (get over your obsession with Broon – he’s forgotten about you) – it’s about the effect on real people’s lives. Wouldn’t it be great if Guido could use his considerable investigative talent for some useful purpose, perhaps analysing and ridiculing such spin-terms as “we’re all in this together”? Even a 50% levy on a banker’s profits (as if!) would just be an inconvenience to the banker, hardly life-endangering, whereas the abolition of the 18-week hospital waiting-list target (slipped in quietly on a good day to bury bad news?) will actually kill some non-privately insured people. But then, that’s asking a partisan shock-jock to care about real people and the issues that concern them – too much to ask, I realise.

    Brown is drawing a salary as MP, and is either incapble of accepting responsibility for his actions as PM. It beggars belief that Labour and the MSM ramped him up as worthy of re-election in the first place.

    If Brown had been capable of running the economy well, this budget wouldn’t be necessary.

    As part of Labour’s scorched earth policy these are just some of the goodies they had in store, in anticipation of an impending electoral defeat and with full collusion between Labour ministers and senior civil servants:

    A series of defence contracts including a £13 billion tanker aircraft programme whose cost has “astonished and baffled” ministers.

    – £420m of school building contracts, many targeting Labour marginals, signed off by Ed Balls weeks before the general election.

    – The £1.2 billion “e-borders” IT project for the immigration service, which is running even later and more over-budget than Labour ministers had admitted.

    – A crisis in the student loans company where extra cash may be needed to prevent a repeat of last year’s failure to process tens of thousands of claims on time.

    – A £600m computer contract for the new personal pensions account scheme rushed through by Labour this year, which will still cost at least £25m even if cancelled.

    – Around £1.6billion given to the EU to distribute to poor countries, despite the UK already having its own Department for International Development (DfID)

    And does anybody know if this repayment clause was true, should the new government scrap the ID card scheme:

    Cowardice from Brown, as usual.

    The thing is, and this is where his monumental stupidity is clear to see, is that if he’d gone the HOP on state opening and faced the tories, the worst would be over by now.

    The longer he leaves it, the worse it’s going to get. Can you imagine the comments and jibes he’s going to get when he eventually shows his miserable face?

    Unless he’s going to step down before he ever sets foot in parliament again of course. Wouldn’t put it past him.

    Perhaps he’s sitting by the phone, waiting for a call from his good friend Obama?

    @ Tony:

    “whereas the abolition of the 18-week hospital waiting-list target (slipped in quietly on a good day to bury bad news?) will actually kill some non-privately insured people”

    What absolute rubbish! How do you manage to come up with such stupidity? The existence of such an artificial “target” is contributing to killing people by forcing medical staff to make decisions based on meeting the target rather than on the type of and duration of care a patient medically requires. Bureaucratic diktat is never, never, never an appropriate way to determine suitable medical treatment.

    In any event, if you genuinely believe the rubbish that you spouted, the answer is simple and always available: privately insure yourself. Avoiding the National Death Sevice altogether is a far more sensible way of reducing the risk to your health.

    When will the new law allowing constituents to recall their MPs come into force?

    It seems the voters of Kirkaldy have a good case.

    It’s time politicians joined the real world where unauthorised absence incurs loss of pay, and written warnings leading up to dismissal.

    MPs should be required to “sign in” each day or provide a sick note like the rest of us.

    50 Calibre says:

    The dysfunction, deranged and gutless former sub-prime minister is simply putting his ‘money for nothing’ mantra in practice. I’ll take the money, you get nothing in return.

    The longer he hides, the worse will be his eventual appearance will be, but there doesn’t seem to be a small army of would be employers competing with each other to get him onto their boards of directors. Perhaps they don’t know where he is either. Perhaps he doesn’t really exist. Perhaps he never did. A figment of the national imagination…

    Yes, ego, audeo declamare, you idiot faux-Latin scholar, that you are a fool. You state that “bureaucratic diktat is never, never, never an appropriate way to determine suitable medical treatment”, as if you know about these things. This is the usual pattern of the Guido blogs. A group of thugs swear all afternoon mindlessly, then someone puts up a counter-argument, then another thug slaps him down with an insult. Finally, a Latin scholar writes a learned paragraph supposedly bringing some rational, albeit rabidly right-wing, argument into the discussion.

    But the argument is totally incoherent and bogus. You should be arguing, as a true free-marketeer, AGAINST the producer interest and IN FAVOUR OF the consumer. But in your Googled-Latin, dumbed-down ignorance, desperate to attack anyone from the Left (as the Lib Dems once were), you end up arguing FOR THE PRODUCER INTEREST. You – oh what’s the Latin for “the man’s a fool”?

    ( Apart from people with notes from their parents and the Sinn Fein refuseniks of course )

    Why isn’t the main media follwing Brown’s absence more closely?

    Conservative 8,086,306 votes – which gave 195 seats
    Liebour 8,024,242 votes – which gave 285 seats

    Obviously no problem with the Electoral Boundaries there then!!!

    … and yet, growth for the economy has been downgraded by the OBR as a result of Slasher’s budget. How will the deficit be paid down then? Once all those nasty public sector workers have been kicked out, and stop paying taxes and stimulating demand in the economy, how will the deficit be paid down then? Well, you voted the Slasher in, so you deal with it.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
