Since he claims to be such a champion of the truth, Gordon Brown should now be prepared to acknowledge the veracity of the remarks made by Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the American Federal Reserve, to the US Senate recently. Bernanke reiterated what everyone willing and capable of enunciating the truth had previously voiced:
“Over the past few years [Gordon Brown] removed from the Bank of England most of its supervisory authorities.When the crisis hit - for example when the Northern Rock bank came under stress - the Bank of England was completely in the dark and unable to deal effectively with what turned out to be a destructive run and a major problem for the British economy.”Naturally, Gordon Brown, not to mention his sycophants, toadies, place-men and the Treasury mandarins who backed his 'reforms' - well, it was either back him or be fired - have strenuously denied that the fact the UK faces the worst banking crisis in the World has anything whatsoever to do with Brown's mismanagement of our regulatory system. For those "flat earthers" and truth-deniers, the UK banking system crises was all caused by "World events" and had absolutely nothing at all to do with Gordon Brown's complete incompetence. What hubris, but then we are used to that from this thoroughly discredited Government and their despicable apologists.
The real truth of the matter is that Gordon Brown just wants to be remembered for achieving something other than a complete fuck-up of the UK economy - not to mention diverting us from remembering his support for the continued wastage of lives, money and materiel in that corrupt shit-hole known as Afghanistan - so he tries to divert our attention by jumping on the next available band-wagon. His twisted posturing is simply a politician's version of that childish party game 'pass the parcel', and is about as effective as Nero allegedly fiddling whilst Rome burned.
