Gordon Brown and his Promises

I like Jeff Randall, he really delivers the truth.

Jeff Randall's latest article is about Gordon Brown and what he said in his speech earlier this week, one of which was his character.

I could comment about the article but Jeff Randall says it all.

Gordon Brown has terrible form when it comes to keeping his promises

Jeff Randall says that rewriting history cannot save the Prime Minister - or Britain - from his failures.

An extract;

His accompanying comments about "character" appeared to have been scripted by a comedian in need of some fresh material.

"For better or worse, with me what you see is what you get," said Mr Brown. It is a line so at odds with reality, so manifestly untrue, so utterly ridiculous that one barely knows where to start challenging it.

Was this the same Mr Brown whose shameless evidence to the Chilcot Inquiry was dismissed by Army chiefs as "disingenuous"? The same Mr Brown who unleashed the "forces of hell" on his own chancellor? The same Mr Brown who cannot walk past a national statistic without rebasing its measurement for narrow political advantage (crime, inflation, growth)?

Another extract;

In each of his five budgets between 2003 and 2007, Mr Brown overspent on average by more than £30 billion, clocking up about £160 billion of debt.

What's more, the pledge he made to me in 1998 to lay "the foundations for long-term industrial and economic success" came to less than nothing.

Under Labour, Britain has shed manufacturing jobs at an alarming rate: about 1.7 million have disappeared since 1997. In that year, manufacturing accounted for 20.9 per cent of the United Kingdom's GDP. By the time of the last election, it was down to 13.6 per cent. Today, it is lower still.

Read the whole article.

In my opinion Jeff Randall nails Gordon Brown for what he really is. Some one who manipulates people, figures and statistics to show him in a good light. See my previous blog about how he manipulated the funding of the military.

He cannot be re- elected, then again he wasn't even elected Labour leader let alone elected to the position of Prime Minister in the first place.
