Ummm, so if you can't hold the person who was chancellor when this mess started and is the PM as it got owrse and worse accountable then who can
The fact is, as Paul Moore will show, that GB knew what was happening within the finance sector and the markets and as chancellor did nothing about
it. He allowed the actions of the likes of RBS, HBOS, Northern Rock to continue unregulated and unrestircited so the country could revel in the
financial feel good factor that he and his party was so quick to claim political qudos and credit for creating. As PM he allowed this to continue and
he needs to answer for it.
During his Labour Party conference speech in 2000, Gordon Brown said “We will not put hard won economic stability at risk. No return to
short-termism. No return to Tory boom and bust” and he went on to say “why did the Tory party give Britain twenty years of stop-go, twenty years
of boom and bust. It is Labour that is now the party for stability and growth.” Ok then, we believe you!
I hate they way that politicians seem to think that we are all too stupid to make up our own minds about what is actually happenng and we will just
fall for the 300rpm spin commin from their mouth.
Someone has to be accoutable (lets face it - nobody has been so far) and all the fingers are now, rightly so, pointing to Gordon Brown. If he won't
go of his own accord then the people of this country should demand it!
Oh and you are right, the alternative is just as bad IMHO. If it was me I would give Vince Cable a shot (and I've voted Labour all my life) , but
that's another debate.
