Sell! Sell! Sell!

Any whisper of greenshoots will be wiped out at 14:30 GMT when Jonah Brown rings the bell at the New York Stock Exchange:

“On Tuesday, September 25, Gordon Brown, UN Special Envoy for Global Education and former UK Prime Minister, and his wife Sarah Brown, founding Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education will visit the New York Stock Exchange and ring The Opening Bell. In his capacity as UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Mr. Brown is joining with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the UNGA this week to launch Education First, a UN initiative to put education on top of the development agenda.”

Arrrrrgh…

UPDATE: Oh no:

    “UN Special Envoy for Global Education”

      No it’s too funny for words LOL!

      He managed to destroy the UK economy and ruin our education system – then drummed out of office he turned his attention to global education instead where he’ll make not one iota of difference to so much as a flea.

      The man is a complete and utter failure in every aspect of his life. And his clothes horse wife, who should be revelling in being a mother, just seems to spend her time on planes flying to and fro between one women’s breakfast/lunch and another spouting loads of hot air to other wealthy women about ‘changing the world’.

        You’re a lot closer to the mark than you realise.
        In the mid-90s we had a new education system being researched for potential development and rollout. We had the research grants, we had the manpower.
        We had an election, and 6 months later we had neither!

        2008 under Merkal’s leadership (she actually does that!) Germany started the long process towards implementing that same education system.

    What if he goes mental & chucks a Nokia at a trading desk?

    What if he is photographed with his trousers tucked into his socks again?

    What if he sees Obama & goes careering after him like a whippet after a rabbit through the kitchens?

        1 Immediacy – you should have bombed straight away.
        2 Accuracy – you missed no 10 Downing Street
        3 Impact – your bomb did not have a high enough yield.
        4 Distance – you’ve got satellites …. the blithering idiot wouldn’t have seen it coming!
        5 Publicity – there’s no such thing as bad publicity – trust me on this!!
        You DO have a second chance!

    PS it was a clever strategy to expand the public sector to buy lots of votes and bribe the Guardian through public sector job ads revenue to get favourable coverage that got rehashed on the beeb. Not as thorough as Ed and Ed though, both of whom who dated beeb economics editor Ms Flanders, but hey, Mandelson may have a view on why that did not happen.

      Look, it’s a big global joke. Robert Mugabe is a ‘UN leader for tourism’ despite being subject to a travel ban and turning his country from a tourist paradise into an economic basket case.

      Tony Blair is a UN peace envoy despite engineering a trumped up case for war in Iraq resulting in 100′s of 1000′s of deaths.

      It’s a big fucking joke.

    According to ZeroHedge, Fibonacci wave theory would indicate this is a major market top and turning point. Downwards

    How ironic would it be if Jonah rang the bell on a multi-year high, to be followed by the Greater Depression.

    Of course, tribal lickspittles like Jimmy will try to spin it as everything going downhill because Gordon was not there to ring the bell every day.

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.”
