Gordon’s Depression Slip

At PMQs Brown said: “We should agree as a world on a monetary and fiscal stimulus that will take the world out of r… depression.”

Like when he said he had “saved the world”, it gives an insight into what he is really thinking…

UPDATE : Worldwide the press are starting to latch on to the first world leader to talk openly of a “depression”.

It’s For You! Brown’s Accidental Tinkle

BBC Davos Blog said…

0947 Gordon Brown looked angry when it turned out some dope had forgotten to turn off his mobile phone during his G20 talk – until the red-faced British PM found out it was his handset ringing. And it went off twice.

UPDATE : The BBC has the clip of his Nokia ringing – you will wet yourself laughing. Still it is not as bad as the time he met Clinton and other world leaders with a big orange blob on his head is it? He really is just a walking global embarrassment.

Kawczynski Whining

Over on Dale’s blog, Daniel Kawczynski, the Tory MP who handed over a constituent’s letter to the police without a warrant, has written a lengthy self-justification blaming the Speaker and the police for his own stupidity (as well as using his staffers as human shields).

He emailed a very similar lengthy missive last week after Guido suggested he was an idiot. Having taken the time to read his squirming explanation Guido replied
Daniel,

I have taken the time to read all the documentation and simply have one question:-

Would you be willing to hand over another constituent’s letter in similar circumstances?

Guido Fawkes

He hasn’t replied. Perhaps he needs another few days…

Has Oxygen Deprivation Brain-Damaged Kawczynski?

He may at 6 foot, 8 1/2 inches be the tallest MP in parliament, but is Guido the only one who thinks Tory MP Daniel Kawczynski handing over a constitutent’s letter (without a warrant) to a policeman shows that he is an idiot?

Crash Gordon – Saved the World (In His Mind)

A Freudian slip from the Prime Mentalist? In his own mind he believes he is the saviour of the global economy, his bail-out copied from the Swedes, he reckons has been copied by all. Sarkozy thinks differently, Merkel thinks he is going to destroy the public finances, EU Finance Commissioner McCreevy gave a pointed speech about the downward spiral of government debt.

He leads the world he is saving, in his mind…

Nigel Griffiths Makes An Idiot of Himself

The Tories just packed the Commons debating chamber to win a vote to force the speaker to allow an emergency debate on the PBR tomorrow – something that Labour were resigned to, but keen to avoid since it has gone down like a plate of cold vomit with the public.

Nigel Griffiths jumped up after the vote on a point of order to the Speaker; “Is it in order for MPs to pile into chamber…” he began before being drowned out with laughter from all sides.

Yes, a Labour MP thought it might be out of order for MPs to do their job. Desperate.

"A Vampire Feeding On Our Misery"

Is Paul Dacre away from the office? This morning’s Mail has two scorching attacks on the Prime Mentalist. Quentin Letts captures the essence of Brown, Peter Mackay unloads both barrels:
Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s political stocks continue to rise even though Britain is facing an economic crisis.

Deceit and hypocrisy are as common in politics as in everyday life, but for Labour to suggest Shadow Chancellor George Osborne might undermine the pound by criticising Gordon Brown suggests new depths of political depravity.

There is already a run on the pound, which has lost 25 per cent of its value against the dollar and the euro. Trying to pin it on Osborne seems cowardly as well as disgusting.

Brown wants complete freedom to do as he pleases during the current economic crisis, even though it’s likely that it was his let-it-rip fiscal recklessness which to a large extent caused our worst-of-all-nations fix.

He demands silence from his political opponents, calculating that if his schemes go wrong he can avoid responsibility by saying he had cross-party support.

Brown practised the same dirty politics when pressed by David Cameron on the Baby P tragedy. He said Cameron’s questions were politically motivated – in other words, they wouldn’t have been asked if the case hadn’t happened in a Labour borough, Haringey.

He must know this isn’t true. He can’t possibly be so cut off from what’s going on that he didn’t know the whole country was talking about the case. But he refused to withdraw his snide remark. His reaction was: ‘This is harmful to me.’ So it was OK to accuse Cameron of playing party politics.

Nothing is allowed to mar Brown’s new lease of life in which – bafflingly – his poll ratings rise while the country goes down the tubes. He feeds on our distress like a vampire, bursting with energy while others wonder how they and their families will survive.

His trip to Washington for President George W. Bush’s G20 economic summit was all for show. Bush wants credit for helping clean up the mess he caused. So does Brown, who also needs to win a general election.

But President-elect Barack Obama wisely kept clear of them – and, we must hope, their attempts to write his new policies.

Brown now hopes Obama will agree to a new G20 summit in London in April. A world-famous new political star with whom he can be photographed again. Thereby fulfilling his greatest dream: that he can demonstrate to the world – not just Britain – that he, and he alone, has the answer to its problems.

All who aspire to public office need to have faith in themselves, but Brown is in a class of his own. And he’ll literally say anything to advance himself or keep back others. He pulls more stunts than Gerry Cottle’s Circus.

As for his colleagues, aren’t they a dismal crew? They were threatening to dump him in order to save their seats. Now the polls have improved, they’re in the grip of collective dementia.

They can’t understand why they’re being rewarded for their mistakes but the new prospect of electoral victory drives them mad with excitement.

No one may threaten their fragile dream by questioning the Government’s competence. Hence their insane jeering during the Commons questions on Baby P and the pathetic attempts to blame Osborne for the collapsing pound.

Brown is now poised to bribe us with tax cuts and other goodies (‘fiscal stimulus’, he calls it) before springing a 2009 general election, saying he needs a new mandate to steer us through the troubled waters ahead.

He doesn’t care how much he spends – or how much debt he piles up for our children and grandchildren – because its a heads-he-wins, tails-you-lose game.

"Ask the PM" Competition Winner

Guido’s competition to submit a question to Gordon has closed and was won by Luke. His question on the economic value of his Gordon mask (together with clunking fists) amused Guido.

Meanwhile over on the Number 10 site currently there is once again some confusion. Guido spoke with Mark Flanagan from Downing Street’s web team. He says they changed the closing date for entries because they wanted to lengthen the time available (now until November 13) for entries which was previously too short. Nothing to do with Guido or anyone else asking tricky questions about the economy. Well he is a non-partisan civil servant and he wouldn’t fib would he? However the Downing Street site still says that questions have to be in by 30 October.

Guido is happy to send the Downing Street site an extra bit of traffic and thinks it important that you get to ask Gordon about the economy. Alex Masterly has done just that brilliantly – see his question here:

Unfortunately it is over a minute long so no doubt they will rule the question out of order. Remember to keep it non-partisan and shorter than a minute – a little birdie tells Guido that they are going to look for excuses to not answer video questions. Wonder if Gordon will avoid answering Guido’s question?

Brown : Bonkers or a Liar?

Gordon has just told BBC News that he can go on a spending splurge because:

“National debt is low and we’re able to borrow to do it.”

This is just delusional, he has run up the debt burden during his

Gordon’s "Falklands Moment"

Best comment of the day from Talwin:
“I notice over the past day or two some commentators wondering if by chance the current economic disasters might not turn out to be Brown’s Falklands moment.

D’you know I think they’re right.

Sion Simon Made a Minister, No Really

Sion Simon has been appointed Skills Minister. His skills with video satire and political forecasting were obviously the decisive factors. Minister for Mad Hatters would have been more appropriate.
