McMental: I Saved the World But No One Listened

Gordon Brown has taken the time to represent the people of Kirkcaldy in the pages of the New York Times. Like a drunk shouting on a park bench about the apocalypse, Gordon’s new line is that he saved the world but nobody was listening:

“In early October 2008, three weeks after the Lehman Brothers collapse, I met in Paris with leaders of the countries in the euro zone. Oblivious to the global dimension of the financial crisis, they took the view that if there was fallout for Europe, America would be to blame — so it would be for America to fix. I was unable to convince them that half of the bundled subprime-mortgage securities that were about to blow up had landed in Europe and that euro-area banks were, in fact, more highly leveraged than America’s.”

Remember kids, Gordon “not only saved the world, but we saved the banks too.” Yes, the food banks…

      It’s still astonishes me that someone so patently off his trolley could have been allowed to stay in office. It doesn’t inspire confidence in the “checks and balances” of our constitution.

        It is frightening to think that someone as mad as Brown had access to
        the nuclear button . Why did the Miliband brothers not call in the men
        with white coats ? There is an excuse for Balls ,he was so far up
        Browns arse that he did not know the time of day .

          Fortunately Britain does not have a nuclear button, but it has well-balanced Naval officers whose commander is the Queen. Possibly this situation was imagined by MacMillan after his own experience with Eden in 1956.
          But your point about the nutcase’s cabinet doing nothing is pertinent–Hitler and Stalin’s henchmen were also impotent.
          So, tell me, why was the law changed to allow lunatics to serve as MPs?

      How it must have hurt him seeing his hated rival, the duplicitous creature Blair with his smooth easy manner being feted in the White house , addressing the UN , being received in Moscow , Paris , Biejing , how it must have gnawed at his bitterly jealous soul .
      When his time came after all those years, his big opportunity, realising he was hopelessly out of his depth, a figure of scorn and ridicule , a pathetic failure unable to win a General Election in his own right, the country on the verge of bankruptcy as a result of his wild spending and idiotic socialist policies. With hindsight the whole chapter is totally predictable why did nobody see it coming.
