Gordon Brown you are a genius? You've saved the world!
Being so far from my homeland in fact thousands of miles away, on a small tropical Island called Negros, I have lost track of British politics and have become inundated with the politics of USA. I have also neglected my old habit of watching Prime Minster’s question time on BBC.com website. Since the time that the shadow Prime Minster Michael Howard stepped down, debate became so boring.
But the world financial melt down has brought what I always thought as a simple idiotic Scottish socialist bumpkin into focus. Yesterday I took a good look at Gordon Brown’s ideas of solving the global financial problem. Interestingly I found much of the dirt being thrown at the British Prime Minster un-founded. My earlier thoughts on Gordon brown where affected by remarks made by UK citizen responding to articles about the Prime Minister. Mainly spurned by the mess that Tony Blair made whilst sitting on the same seat of power and then later when the effects present US related financial problem gave question to the value of American securities in British and European Banks.
But first we have to look at Gordon’s education to see that this guy is properly the cleverest leader the world has seen for some considerable time. An yes he has made speech gaff’s due to his ideas of what path Britain should take that differed from the path that Tony Blair would actually take especially back in 2007. Where as Gordon is reported clashed with Tony Blair’s policies on several occasions, that’s if we are to believe newspaper reporters and many, a, leak from No 10 Downing Street.
Evidently when Gordon was young he was a child prodigy he ended up being at the age of 15 being accepted into University, one of the youngest students to go to Edinburgh University since the war. That fact states clearly that Gordon at that time was perceived as being a genius at least academically. We can then give him the benefit of the doubt that he is not a one eyed idiot as suggested by a famous TV personality a short while ago.
As Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown presided over the longest ever period of growth in UK. He also made the Bank of England independent of which came under much criticism but proved to be successful in keeping check on inflation. When things went well Gordon Brown was quoted as being a clever economist, of which I am sure was seen to be the key factor for Tony Blair’s to choose Gordon as part of the leadership of New Labour when the Labour party took on a completely new profile.
The other day I spent time on 10 Downing Streets website, it has changed so much since the self declared technophobic Tony Blair left the seat of administration. There is now a portal to youtube.com where citizens can questions the Prime Minister who it must be said looked under attack and tired whilst answering the publics questions.
I spent hours listening at Gordon Brown speeches on economy and the global financial issues and to be fair his delivery is impressive and you can see the man knows what he is talking about.
I can now see a point of interest that really has not been touched to much and that is what happens normally to the tax payers money, it certainly is collected into a bank account. Then possibly it earns interest in deposit account. Other than that it does not become useful until it’s withdrawn to pay for government projects and the general costs administration for the nation.
So much noise was made when Gordon Brown came up with this Bail out plan, but when you think of it the money is not being given away its being used to grease the wheels of economy it will earn possibly more interest than stuck in deposit accounts. Yes I have really made up my mind Gordon Brown came up with a simple solution and it really takes a genius to see such solutions.
Of course I will not vote for him and his party on the next election. New Labour needs punishing for holding hands with Bush and for corruption. We simply need a new administration in the chair but of course they are corrupt as well, that’s how the world is. It’s a global political problem.
Oh yes lets not forget this quote…
“Every child should have the best start in life, that everybody should have the chance of a job, that nobody should be brought up suffering in poverty. I would call them the beliefs that you associate with civilization and dignity.”
Gordon Brown, British Prime Minister.
Gordon I really hope you believe in that quote as much as I do, if you gave proof of that by actions you would then be my hero. But there is no profit in solving and eradicating poverty and that is normally the thought of most of the elite politicians.
