Jonah’s Tranquil Vision

In the wake of the carnage he wrought by opening the NYSE on Tuesday, Gordon has been speaking out about the state of the economy. Yesterday morning Reuters reported:

“Europe is enjoying a moment of calm due to the European Central Bank’s plan to buy debt of euro zone countries, but the region will struggle to solve more fundamental problems, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Tuesday.”You’re in the new tranquillity period,” Brown said.”

By yesterday afternoon there were riots on the streets of Athens and Madrid, Spanish bond yields started to soar again.

Fears of Spanish bailout wiped £23 billion off British markets as the FTSE plunged 91.62 points.

The Prime Mentalist did always have problems with the concept of tranquillity…

    JK Rowling says:

    Gordon Brown glistens like a panther in the undergrowth, ready to strike at his prey with his elegant limbs throbbing in the heat of the balmy evening. His head is oversized, stuffed full of his massive intellect. His brain works like a laser ready with ideas, wit and charm.

    You are becoming a Joke yourself Guido. David Cameron is currently the British Prime Minister…haven’t you noticed, or are you trying to block this from your mind.

    Stock exchange fall on Wednesday, because Gordo rang the bell at the NYSA on Tuesday…My god you are losing it !!!!

    Can I direct you to Dave’s speech yesterday claiming that the Arab spring is alive and well…. errrr while the WHOLE region falls into civil war…get a grip Guido.

    If you want to be taken seriously, start behaving like some one who can be taken so.

    Tranquility, conjours up images of Apollo 11{?}. “The Eagle has landed”
    Unfortunately with Gordon at the helm, ‘The Albatross has landed’ is nearer the mark. Will his reverse Midas Touch ever disappear for the good of the world?

    They will all be furious to be put on a level with such an absurd figure as Gordon.

    They didn’t hit him in the face just worked his body over with lengths of lead piping, stuffed him full of drugs and sent him back out to do the ‘changed man’ interview. Brown’s enforcers were all NYPD trained.

    Dear Lord,

    2012 has been a trying and testing year.

    You have taken from me my favourite crooners, ANDY WILLIAMS and DOROTHY McGUIRE.
    My favourite character actors ERNEST BORGNINE & MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN.
    My favourite film Director, TONY SCOTT, and my favourite musicians, JON LORD and ROBIN GIBB.

    Just so you know, my favourite politicians are Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, Tom Watson, Ed Balls and my favourite journalist is Polly Toynbee.

    Maybe the MoD could use Brown as a secret weapon-get him to publicly praise Iran’s nuclear programme, or the Taliban, or Somali pirates. Then stand back and watch these things collapse.

    I’m not sure what your point is?
    We are doing precisely that – or at least the Americans are, Russia keeps making pointed remarks about it – something to do with Afghanistan, something, something, CIA training, something, something, CIA funding, something, rhubarb, something, supplying arms, something, something, 1970s invasion, something, rhubarb, rhubarb, convenient excuse 2001, rhubarb, CIA still supporting them, something, rhubarb, murdering scum killing ‘000s in Syria!

    You assume that he’d competently praise Iran’s nuclear program without mentioning how great ours is – or something else for him to gurney over.

    The risks are too great!

    IF left bound, gagged, and facing the wall in the caretakers stock room at the UN building he’d still manage to start WW3, with nukes, while all the delegates are out for lunch!

    I was looking at the film of those riots in Madrid on Sky News.

    You should look at the peoples feet.

    They are all wearing nice shoes with soles .

    I mean to say it stands to reason that if these Spaniards were really suffering they would have no shoes or if they had shoes they would have holes in their soles .

    It seems to me that all this talk about Spain falling to pieces is absolute nonsense.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
