Brown: Five More Depressing Years?

Waves of grim foreboding sweep the nation this morning. The cause? This column by Paul Krugman in The New York Times - 'Has Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, saved the world financial system?' Eeeek! You read it here first - we could be in for another five years of the grim Scottish ascendancy and, as Wodehouse so sagely observed, it is never very difficult to tell the difference between a Scotsman with a grievance and a ray of sunshine. Gordon always has a grievance. I saw two clergymen in a cafe at the weekend, one a bishop I think. 'Bring back Tony Blair," said the bishop, 'we miss him.' 'Oh yes,' said the other, 'dear old Teflon Tony.' It's come to this.


  1. I noticed most of the CEOs of British banks resigned today (or intend too) Shame the CEO of UK PLC did not do the same.

    I think Cameron is playing it right,don't rock the boat, let Broon deal with the hear and now and then get to the politics of the issue as soon as.

    Cheer up the sort of Tories are coming :0)

  2. Who will rid us of this meddlesome Prime Minister?

  3. That's not exactly a British invention. It's what every country in the world is doing except for the USA.

  4. Fantastic. We have to endure this depressing bastard only to be followed by a decade or more of Etonian tyranny.
