Team GB Needed 63 Million Medals to Recover Gordon’s Gold

Team GB might have done the nation proud during the Olympics, but they needed to win a lot more medals if they wanted to earn back all the gold the Prime Mentalist sold off. Guido has done the maths:

Each gold medal contains 6g (or 1/5 oz) of gold.

This means five gold medals are needed to make one ounce.

Gordon Brown sold off 12.7 million ounces of gold.

5 x 12.7 million = 63.5 million gold medals.

At least the new Team GB did better than the old one…

      Ah Gordon. What a boon he is as a figure of fun. Someone we can all unite around and hold in ridicule together, ignoring the fact that we could have rebelled against the old fraud and his pals and driven him from office far earlier, but instead we all went along with his nonsense like compliant fools… just as we put up with the antics of William Hague, Nick Clegg, Vince Cable, David Cameron and George Osborne.

        Gordon Brown says:

        Look, you are being unfair.

        I did what I did, because it was the best thing for this country. Gold was practically worthless and so I decided to exchange it for millions of very valuable paper Euros.
        It was the deal of the century, but none thank me for my epic foresight and sound grasp of reality.

        Bigots all.

          Is there any truth to the rumours that Tone and Gordo – got it on in a hotel room? Could there have been a third (meddeling son) party involved? And is there any compromising stuff that the meddeling one just happens to have as a persuading piece of dirt?

          Rumours – is it the stuff of great leg ends.

            To Expat – a specific article was once published in the MOS – Blurr & Broon ought to have gone spare about its implication but remained distinctly ‘silent’. The Mandy is the one who holds quite some evidence over them. But Mandy is herself ‘controlled’.

      We’ve given up wondering why Brown informed the market of the sale of OUR gold way before it was actually sold, allowing traders to force down the price , and sell at ‘Brown’s Bottom’ values. It’s either because he’s a fucking idiot, or he was saving the skins of certain financial institutions, ie banks. Perhaps you’d like to explain which it is to your dimwit lefty mates Jimmy.

        Filthy Rich Capitalist says:

        I explained this some time ago and it has been confirmed in a number of financial articles in the press. Morgan Stanley bank had a huge short position in gold which they could not unwind. The situation put the entire US banking system at risk. Gordon Brown was approached by Gavin Davies, a partner in Goldman Sachs, whose wife Sue Nye worked for Gordon, in an attempt to get Morgan Stanley off the hook; this could not be done in the US as it would leak, and therefore initiate huge litigation from traders. Gordon announced the sale in advance so that the gold traders would mark the price down and Morgan Stanley could offload their short position, which they did. The price of the sale at $230 an ounce raised $2.92bn for the Exchequer. If that gold were sold today at $1600 an ounce it would raise $20.32bn, a loss to the taxpayer of $17.4bn. This is of course a drop in the ocean compared to the £bns Gordon authorised to bail out Northern Rock, RBS and HBOS, the latter two both complicit in Gordon’s immigration policy, providing huge unsecured loans to property developers to build thousands of blocks of flats for asylum seekers and other immigrants encouraged in to the country by the then Labour Government.

If the Freddy Mercury only acts upon the advice of Ministers and they are corrupted throughout then what fezzes up as a government of the day ain’t quite what it appears to be. As for the political circus performers known as the Parliamentary Press pack … well they’re not likely to ‘tell the truth any decade now’ because the are part of the game.

    That’s the opinion of MPs in whom public trust is at an all-time low.

    I see the Americas are ganging together to defend Ecuador over the rapist Assange. Yet what is the rest of Europe doing to defend the obedient application of EU law between the UK and Sweden? The idea of the EU was supposed to be so it could gang together like a wolf pack and use its collective muscle against other countries and blocs. What a fucking waste of time and money the EU is. More supine than lupine.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
