5.0 out of 5 stars How to stop it happening again?, 17 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gordon is a Moron: The Definitive and Objective Analysis of Gordon Brown's Decade as Chancellor of the Exchequer (Paperback)
Vernon Coleman has done a public service by writing this, but will we listen?

I recently finished this book and it does what it says on the label-makes you angry and frustrated. Just to take ne exmple, not the costliest but the most obviously stupid and wicked even at the time-Gordon sold off our gold reserves at the bottom of the market and we have nothing to show for it. Why? I am moved to suggest it might have been done out of sheer anti-English spite, or just becuse he could and it felt good to exercise power. Certainly there is no rational explanation. In China, anyone guilty of this level of economic incompetence, indeed betrayal of national treasure would not just have been sacked, but executed.

The take home message is not so much that Gordon the psychopathic, immumerate, controlling, foul tempered communist moron has damaged our economy and much else in a way that will take our children a generation to repair, BUT that all the facts about what was being done were in the public realm AT THE TIME and still it went on. Why wasn't he stopped? How COULD we have let him get away with his pension theft, he certainly out did that other Labour (ex) politician Robert Maxwell when it came to dipping his fingers into other peoples' retirement savings to fund his grandiose schemes.

We need to put in some kind of triple lock to prevent anything like this ever happening again. However, with every benefit claimant and government dependant (Brown increased both more than any of his predecessors) having a vote, and apparently fully determined to fall for immoral nonsense like the communist dog-whistle slogans 'tax the rich' and 'pay off the debt on the proceeds of growth' , it seems likely we will learn nothing and repeat the same mistakes again. It will serve us right.
