I thought and still think Brown was a thoroughly decent human being and was in to politics for the right reasons unlike today’s self serving vacuous twats.Kes wrote: ↑Sat May 23, 2020 2:55 pmShould add that I had an equal dislike of the Tories at that age. Rich people looking after rich people, and helping to make them even richer. Selling off every asset that State owned, not for any personal benefit though, because that's illegal, innit?
Funny how just about every minister in charge of a sell off, was later appointed to said business's board of directors, when they were no longer an MP. Something to do with them "having experience" in that industry... yeah, like fuck.
It was every bit as immoral as Gordon Brown selling off the gold reserves when gold was at it's lowest price in thirty odd years.
It's ALL the working people in this country that keep it going, and despite the fact that there should be one, there's not a party out there that actually represents them all, without stitching up one sector or another.
They're all fucking weasels, or idealists chasing lost causes, it's in the blood.
Brown sold £3.5b worth of gold in 1999 at the wrong time but for the right reasons. It’s worth noting gold didn’t peak until around 2012.
