"Recession is a test of character" — Gordon Brown

Money, Politics, Systems thinking

I beg your pardon?


“Recession is a test of character”

I’m sorry WHAT?

“Recession is a test of character”

Jesus H. Christ, you prick. You get us into this mess by deliberately
sinking inflation in house prices to keep the recorded levels low, in
order to generate an artificial feeling of economic prosperity; you
fail to regulate the City, which was clearly taking the piss (evident
long before the collapse); and now you say that pushing through the
crap you’ve been complicit in generating is a test of our character?

The test of character is avoiding recession, a test which you have failed.

Call a general election now and let’s get this over with.

You and Tony – we should string up the two of you for what you’ve
presided over.
