He’s Still Jonah Brown

As we predicted beforehand, the Jonah effect wiped over 100 points off the value of the Dow and saw the NASDAQ experience its worst day since June. If you watch the video closely you’ll see that he even screwed up “ringing the bell” to open Wall Street.

He’s still the accursed one-eyed son of the manse…

    No it shows it falling from the open, rising valiantly after he left the building but still unable to shake off the curse by the end of the day.

    You should have gone to Specsavers Jimmy.

    I would feel sorry for the guy if he had this reverse midas touch in private life but given the destruction he caused with New Labour I have no sympathy for the deluded moron.

    Where is the video of him fucking this up? I can’t see a link…

    “And the Closing Bell was ringing
    As it made its mournful sound–
    T’was a losing day on Wall Street,
    Caused by Little Gordie Brown…

    And the buyers and the sellers
    Prayed for guidance from above…”

    I just feel sorry for their boys. They should have parents there to take them to school, read them stories at bedtime and encourage and join them at cubs, or karate, or other clubs and things.

    Instead of which their parents spend their lives pointlessly jetting round the world doing nothing worthwhile and the children are left to paid help.

    Sad! Really sad!! ++Shakes head in despair++

    Dickhead Clegg wants to hammer the 280000 millionaires in the uk

    Say he does them for 10K each which he won’t, that equals 2 800 000 000

    Interest on the UK debt alone is 44 000 000 000

    And a note came down from heaven
    Carried by a helpful dove:

    ‘If you want to save your money
    From the index crashing down,
    Keep the Jonah out of Wall Sreet,
    Keep well clear of Gordie Brown.’

    jgm2 says:

    It’s worse than that. If he took a million off each of ‘em he’d still only get 280bn quid which would cover the next two years deficit. And leave about 95% of ‘em with fuck all. Since, while they might have a million quid, a lot of ‘em won’t have two million or anything like it.

    What are they going to do for money in two years time? Remember – now you’ve only got about 14,000 people to plunder.

    How are they actually going to pay off the national debt?

    Looting the rich might superficially sound like a quick ‘win’. But it won’t actually work. Even the ‘rich’ ain’t got enough money.

  21. 21
    Jimmy says:

    You obviously use the same graph designer as LibDem focus leaflets. Clearly the longer he was away, the lower the line went. Rather like UK growth figures.

    I suspect this is a vincecable -‘I’m the next chancellor in 2015′ plan!!

    You’d really want to trust them wouldn’t you??!!

  24. 24 says:

    Everyone knows that taxing the rich even more will increase the national debt and result ion lower growth, as they will either fuck off abroad, employ more tax dodging accountants or will simply not bother risking their cash in new business and new jobs.

    But Labour and the Lib-dems do not care. They just want to look good in front of thick plebs.

  25. 25
    jgm2 says:

    ‘Growth’ hahahahaha. 180bn quid of borrowed ‘growth’ in his final imbecile year.

    12% of GDP borrowed to generate 0.1% of ‘growth’.

    ‘Growth’. Ahahahahaha.

    You’re funny.

    Synic says:

    Presumably Clegg realises how many public sector pensioners will be included, or is he going to ignore the value of their gold plated inflation proofed pension pots?

  27. 27
    Socialism is a severe mental illness says:

    ‘Cubs’ is obviously a militaristic hangover from the days of British Empire (*spit*) and ‘Karate’, although obviously effnic in origin and good for that, encourages competitiveness (*spit*) and – dare I say it – violence.

    Nothing but the best group-hugs and equality+diversity learning experiences for the little Browns.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Mother Nature – may well will deliver her judgment [Re-Freezing] this winter – to all the global mongrels and climate change nutters.

    3 or even 7 years of drought is not an uncommon thing. Save the crap by those who scream about it being the end of the world.

    “What are they going to do for money in two years time?”

    Clegg has probably conflated deficit and debt. Again.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    If the MET police and CPS want to drag themselves out of the mire – best instigate proceedings against Tony Blair and all of his cohorts – for abuse of office – the Fraud Act 2006 and preceeding Acts of law. The “Proceeds of Crime act” is also relevant. e.g. benefitting “financially” to others’ detriment ….

    Oh come on. ‘Growth’. 180bn quid of borrowed money to buy 0.1% of ‘growth’. It’s fucking hilarious. Accidentally hilarious no doubt but hilarious all the same.

    A tax on wealth destroys wealth. Even land wealth, Cable.

    If that wasn’t true why are farmers exempt from inheritance tax?
    Shouldn’t a farmer pay 40% on the thousands of acres they hand down to their own family? Millions and millions of pounds handed over tax free?

    That can’t be right can it? Why can’t those greedy farmers sell off a few hundred acres every time granny dies? Pay their way like the rest of us, eh?

    Oh..I’ve just remembered. Its because within 20 years there wouldn’t be a working farm in the country.
    Cable you thick pratt.

  47. 47
    I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

    That £180bn could have been worse – imagine if Brown hadn’t increased income tax from 10% to 20% for the lowest-paid workers, in his last budget. Jeeze, he’d have had to borrow even more to secure that 1% growth. Not a lot more (because it was obviously the very poorest workers who saw their income tax doubled by Brown), but more all the same.

    Filthy Rich Capitalist says:

    Having shorted with the Proshares triple short S&P 500 on the information earlier provided by Guido, I am now well in profit. I have been looking for a short entry point for some time and this was it, just as Jonah Brown’s sale of our gold was spot on for the bottom of a 21 year bear market in gold. Brown is the best contraindicator around!

    jgm2 says:

    Yep. It’s so obvious it hurts.

    If you tax ‘mansions’ then ‘mansions’ will suddenly lose (some of) their value. Suddenly your home becomes (more of) a liability.

    A small number of people will be forced to sell their homes because they cannot afford the tax. This, albeit relatively small number of forced sales, will force down the pr*ice of houses. Which at one level is a good thing because it will, via the knock-on effect, make property more affordable across the board. But it is directly at odds with every other government initiative which is aimed at keeping a floor under the pr*ice of property at all costs.

    And I presume that the 99% of government energy devoted to keeping a floor under property pr*ices is because nothing pisses the voters off more than the realisation that they’ve paid too much for their homes and they’re in hock up to their eyeballs to the banks. You know. The wicked banks who, only five years ago were handing out cash to any muppet with a pulse.

    Now the muppets all want protecting from their decisions.

    It’s fucked.

    There is no easy way to raise money. Even if you do raise a windfall tax of 50% of assets on the rich it <i.still won’t solve the underlying problem which is taht the government is spending more than it is ‘earning’. If demanding money by threat of kidnapping or physical violence if you resist kidnapping can be said to be ‘earning’.

    The only long-term solution is to cut spending. Cut. And cut hard.

    Get it over with.

    That’s the sound of the ladder being pulled up by the Maximum Imbecile and his baby-boomer Labour government.

    ‘Yeah, we got free education, a job for life, a good final salary pension scheme with the option to retire at 50. And your grandchildren will be paying for it. Sorry about the deficit, sorry there’s no money left, must go and educate the children of the world through the medium of bell-ringing and after-dinner speeches.’

    Why don’t you end yourself in America? I’m sure that, as an ex-Head of Government and possessing a diplomatic passport now, you wouldn’t have any problem passing a background check for a .44 Magnum, the most powerful gun in the world, which will blow your head clean off. No sense taking any half-measures. Just don’t kill the wife and kids. Leave them out of it. I’m sure that in time, they may come to understand why Daddy had to top himself for the good of humanity, and may even consider you a saint of sorts. C’mon, Gordon– give it the old college try!

    What about them jgm2?

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.”
