Prime Mentalist Going Loco Down in Acapulco

Parliament has a full schedule this week, so of course Gordon is instead jetting off to a Mexican party town to address a conference on the financial crisis. He has clearly brought the Curse of Jonah with him. Just this week Acapulco has been battered by storms and heavy flooding, if that wasn’t enough CNN reports on its recent “economic devastation”. It is also reportedly set to go bankrupt. Hurricane Jonah strikes again…

      In the Herald – headline could have read Chinese decide to buy even the northern bit attached to England:

      “Salmond looks to China for new refinery owner ”
      ALEX SALMOND is seeking to use his growing links with China to find a future for the crisis-hit Grangemouth oil refinery and chemical plant.

      Salmond and Mentalist in agreement?

        The trouble is that Grangemouth is already owned 50% by the Chinese and if they think it won’t pay neither will the rest of the northern bit.

      The one eyed idiot from Kirkcaldy organised and presented the conference for the young girl Malala Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban, and her visiting friends. Expect to hear all the girls have all been killed by the Taliban sooner than later…

      No but he managed to get to Fergie’s book launch. Would he be interested in a drink from Ferguson’s famed cellar?

    It's all the LibLabConners fault says:

    Wouldn’t he be better off going to Patagonia. That’s even further away from the rest of us — and preferably stay there, the destructive fucker.

    However, we’ve still got Dave, who is more than doubling the National Debt left by Gorgon.

    I’m trying to imagine Gordon dancing to the tune “Going loco, down in Acapulco” but it simply doesn’t work.

      Try to imagine him sitting in a straightjacket and rocking to and fro in an Acapulco institutional facility, to the tune. It’s much easier.

    I find it astounding that anyone wants to invite Brown to address a conference. He is one of the most boring public speakers ever. He was also a disastrous PM. Hopefully he taking lardy Sarah with him too

      He was good when he did Nothing. says:

      But he was a good Chancellor once. The time when he first got the job, put his Prudence hat on and simply continued with the policies set in place by the previous Conservative government.

    It’s worse than you think. Giant sea serpents are being washed ashore in the area to the North, which is an indication that the Big Quake is about to hit California.

    Casual Observer 4 says:

    Mexico has also just banned GM food, to the chagrin of M’onsanto, and is very irritated that their President’s email has been comprehensively hacked by the NSA.

    So in response, the US have sent in Gordon.

    Mexico should be back on side shortly.

    Enoch Powell said that all political careers end in failure. What he did not say was that after that politicians go about telling others how to fail.

    How this Hunt ever has the gall to lecture anyone about finance is beyond belief. And what sort of moron would pay to listen to him? This incompetent fucking idiot and his sidekick Blair should be shot for their part in totally screwing up the British economy.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
