George Osborne to Parliament two weeks ago…

“Let me be clear, whatever the Commission President says, British taxpayers will not be contributing to the €urozone’s bailout of Greece. Full stop.”

    A politician using his selective memory to forget what he said 2 weeks ago? That will never happen…

    Looks like the recession will continue gaining pace. To those of you who say we are not in recession just look at the jobless figures rising, companies closing down. Looks like we have real growth eh?

    Oct 27th:

    In a statement later to the House of Commons, Mr Osborne said there may be a case for further increasing the budget of the IMF to keep pace with the size of the global economy.

    But he said: “Let me be very clear, we are only prepared to see an increase in the resources the IMF makes available to all countries of the world.

    “We would not be prepared to see IMF resources reserved only for the eurozone.”

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
