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.”

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
