Proof Gordon Is Wasting Money

Brown is, we are told, pounding out 10,000 words per day. If he were the “Fastest Typist In The World” (150 words per minute), then this would only take him 67 minutes of each day. Leaving him plenty of time to do those constituency duties which he claims he is still doing.

But Gordon isn’t the “Fastest Typist in the World”. Let’s assume he’s a ‘fast’ typist (40wpm), then his 10k marathons will be taking him four hours and ten minutes of each day. Assuming he is doing constituency work until, say six in the evening (as he is paid to do), then he’ll be working until around 11pm each night. Meaning he won’t see his kids. Which Brown professes not to do, so we must assume therefore that he’s letting his book time eat into his constituency work.

More than likely he’s officially a ‘slow’ typist (23wpm). In which case he’ll be spending seven hours and fifteen minutes of publicly paid time on his book. Even allowing him two or three hours for constituency work, that’s a pretty busy day. But those times are merely for copy taking…

What’s the average typing speed when someone is composing? Well, that’s just 19wpm. And how long would it take to compose 10,000 words if one is typing at 19wpm? On average, not taking account for poor eyesight and periodic fits of rage, it would take eight hours and forty-five minutes. Pretty much the same as a full working day, that the taxpayer, not Simon and Schuster is footing the bill for..

    Is his book going to talk about the nearly 30,000 Indian IT workers have been brought in to the UK despite high levels of unemployment among UK IT workers ?

    They’re exempt from UK tax and National Insurance thanks to a nice HMRC dispensation. For any given level of take home pay, they’re half the cost of UK workers.

    They’re exempt from UK visa regulations thanks to a nice amendment to the law arranged by Margaret Moran and a number of other MPs who were employed as “consultants” by Indian lobbying groups. Employers can and do fire UK staff so that they can be replaced by an Indian.

    The agencies who employ the Indians are based in India in Special Economic Zones. That means that they pay no corporation tax either here or in India. Oh, and being offshore they pay no employer’s national insurance either. UK agencies haven’t a hope in hell of competing with them.

    It’s thought that the next wave will be lawyers – you can do a degree in English law in India. This will be followed by semi-skilled workers who’ll put the production lines at Nissan and what’s left of the steel industry out of a job.

    Do you not remember what he has done to this country Humbug Hater? I think that the man bears a great deal of responsibility for the present state of the nation’s finances. He made some very bad decisions in his time including the doubling of tax on the lowest paid and effectively giving away half of our gold reserves.

    If the director of a FTSE listed company had made some of Gordon’s fiscal blunders in the private sector it would have resluted in a P45, a bin liner for personal effects and a taxi waiting outside reception. Not to mention a quick call to the fraud squad.

Let him live with his concience, that little voice in his head telling him what a loathed and detested c’unt he is, gnawing away at his every moment both awake and sleeping.

His ambition and ego took preference over the economic well-being of MY country. That makes it MY business. The bastard ruined the country, then expects the taxpayer to fund his writing of his excuses. I find that arrogant, obscene and rather pathetic.

    Gorgon has proved over and over again that his percieved vision of his invincibility was and still is a myth in his own head.
    We are well rid of this power junkie and his spineless yes men and now we have the spectacle of these same yes men vying to be party leader and calling Gorgon not fit to burn,what a bunch of self serving wretches they are proving to be.

    Hmmm….if the appendage was *hard*, it would point in the wrong direction for keyboard operation. Unless, of course, the operator was suspended from the ceiling by their feet, or the keyboard was attached to the underside of the desk.

    If the appendage was *limp*, it may not have the force or accuracy to operate the keys swiftly enough. (All this is, of course, conjecture.)

    The “underside of desk” theory seems most probable, though what the operator might have on top of the desk to maintain engorgement of the said appendage is probably better left unexplored. As indeed, would the keyboard be afterwards.

    How come David Miliband is the “go to” person for a comment on Cameron’s supposed diplomatic snub to Pakistan?

    “And Shadow Foreign Secretary David Miliband said the prime minister needed to think “through carefully what he is going to say” on such occasions.

    While Britain must speak with “conviction” on important issues, he said Mr Cameron had only told “half the story” and “failed to recognise” Pakistan had lost thousands of its own citizens, including former leader Benazir Bhutto, to terrorist attacks.

    “There is a fine line between a straight talker and a loud mouth,” he told the BBC.”

    He may have lost the election, but he’s still trying to destroy as many people’s lives as he can. Only this time he’s trying to do it in Africa.

    Never forget. If we forget then it’ll happen again. And I’m fucked if I’m going to just sit back and watch another unelected lunatic bankrupt the country, rig the electoral boundaries in his favour, and piss all over our military.

    Gordon’s book will probably turn out to be tripe, but 10,000 considered words a day is still impressive going. Many professional writers only manage that in a week.

    But think of those 19th century authors who ground out thousands of words a day for the weekly magazines. Dickens may be well regarded, but I had the misfortune to read a lot of less compelling output from the period.

    Gordon’s effort will probably be better than that of the scribes who were paid by the word, not least as he probably feels passionately about his subject. But even if his 10,000 words are considered they’ll probably still be crap to read.

    The identity of a mystery man who has been appearing in the background of live news bulletins over the past few months has finally been revealed.

    The man’s many appearances had been tracked by the fidgetwith.com blog which spotted him hovering in the background of reports on Sky News, ITV, BBC and Channel 4, as well as on an episode of ‘The Antiques’ Roadshow’.

    Now it’s been revealed that he is Ed Balls, and his appearances are part of a protest against the media.

    He told the Evening Standard: “It is a statement about the image conscious media. I am overweight and people like me are treated as unsightly because of the way they look.

    “I could have a valid point about something but the microphone is always passed to the person alongside me. The point I am making is that the more you push me aside, the more I’m going to be determined to make my presence known.”

  446. 446

    Mr. Brown has been trying to convince us that boosterism provides an easy escape from a life of frustration, unhappiness, desperation, depression, and loneliness. This pathetic attempt to reopen wounds that seem scarcely healed deserves no comment other than to say that in order to convince us that “the norm” shouldn’t have to worry about how the exceptions feel, Mr. Brown often turns to the old propagandist trick of comparing results brought about by entirely dissimilar causes. He always demands instant gratification.

    Mr. Brown should clarify his point so people like you and me can tell what the heck he’s talking about. Without clarification, Mr. Brown’s codices sound lofty and include some emotionally charged words but don’t really seem to make any sense. He seems to be playing the “I’m more morally crippled than you” game.

    Of course, this will be an exercise in futility unless you accept the fundamental premise of this letter, namely that Mr. Gordon Brown has no social tenderness, very few of those amiable private virtues that would win our affection, and none of those public qualities that claim respect or command admiration.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
