Comments on: Wish I hadn’t said that… http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2009/01/21/wish-i-hadnt-said-that/ Insights behind the investment headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:43:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Philippe Mandangi http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2009/01/21/wish-i-hadnt-said-that/comment-page-1/#comment-1261 Thu, 22 Jan 2009 20:08:48 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/?p=1103#comment-1261 History may have caught with Gordon Brown, but it has to be stress that his statement released on Evening Standard does not entirely reflect the current economic situation. The international economic mechanisms have broken down and the United Kingdom can not fix them on its own even if great savings where made in booming time. To show his flexibility, he has even tried to borrow Tories policies, which he intends ti implement soon though noone knows whether this will work or not. Gordon Brown has the credential around the world as one of the best economy managers and the situation he finds himself in is rather exceptional, but as in any good democracy, he has to be held responsible

I just wish opposition parties would expose his failings and shortcomings more effectively than they currently do.

We knew that none of them has a clue. I think it should be illegal for people with political ambition to be politicians. People should be selected at random like jurors, serve for a few years and then never be eligible again as long as they live. Talking of currencies, I wonder how many countries are now kicking themselves for joining the euro? Suckers.

I myself do not take to seriously anything that comes out of Browns lip’s now, due to his typical poltical sales spill trying to deflect any blame from himself and trying to blame it all on “greedy bankers”, please.

Its nice to see him take such large bonuses and share compensation, when they cut out stock incentives and raises to employees, due to ‘tough times’. Its nice to see fearless leaders taking raises during a rough economy. Just proves the rich get richer: http://www.reuters.com/article/companyNe ws/idUSBNG42069420090121?rpc=11
