Gordon Brown And Labour’s Worst Moments In 2009
2009 has been Gordon Brown’s annus horribilis (yes there is probably a Mandelchump joke in there) the financial saviour of the world could not save his own country, as the financial predictions of Brown and Darling were proved not only wrong, but so wide of the mark as to be laughable.
The scandal of MP’s expenses exploded in to the news courtesy of the Telegraph, and continues to cause massive tidal waves with today’s news that the Met Police have sent 2 further files on MP’s to the Crown Prosecution Service, making a total of 6 MPs and Lords in the frame. The expenses scandal initially reflected badly on the Government and Gorbals Mick the speaker, then backfired on Gordon Brown as he has had to pay back more money he should not have claimed.
The things claimed have verged from the ridiculous to fraud for non-existent mortgages, there will doubtless be some sacrificial lambs next year to satisfy the blood lust of voters rightly incensed over the abuse of taxpayers money by people they trusted.
The rising number of casualties in Afghanistan, the shortage of helicopters, equipment and funding blew up and did Brown, Ainsworth and Labour no favours.
Gordon Brown’s inability to admit there will have to be cuts in spending, the infamous 10% Tory cuts smear when government departments were preparing 20% cuts, 50% income tax and the resumption of class war and politics of envy have all failed to resonate with the public.
Then there was the slow motion car crash of the Labour party conference, the Sun pulling the plug on Labour support and Mandelson redefining the meaning of “Chump”.
Gordon Brown delusional world statesman and “saviour of the world”, “sorry Gordon who?”, as they say in the USA. Failed to get his “Tobin tax” adopted after the US said No, failed to save the world at Copenhagen despite being willing to plunge the UK economy even further into debt so he could buy “World Statesman” status.
There is a school of thought that says April 11th 2009 was the day Labour died, there is more than an element of truth in this as Labour’s poll rating has been continually downwards ever since that date.
April 11th was the day that Smeargate hit the news and the real nature of Brown’s hired help and Labour was exposed in the shape of Draper, Collins and McBride. Damian McBride has since been sued by Conservative MP Nadine Dorries and they are further legal actions pending over Smeargate including one for 10 Downing Street. As the scandal of the equipment shortages hit the news so Labour smeared Generals and their families, their own MP’s, in fact anyone to ensure that there was no criticism of our Dear Leader.
The next milestone was the emergence of the Labour Political Elite and how they are above the law. The Attorney General Patricia Scotland was caught hiring illegal immigrants and breaking her own laws, there was also a problem with her expenses where Brown changed the rules to get Scotland off the hook.
Other Labour women who have had a bad year include Hazel Blears, Jacqui Smith the Redditch Saddleback and Harriet Harman. Everyone’s favourite harpie is so important that the 1988 Road Traffic Act does not apply to her.
This will probably be the last post until the New Year unless something exciting happens like Al Gore spontaneously combusting, Gordon Brown’s charisma bypass operation is reversed, Hazel Blears gets eaten by cat or Jacqui Smith stars in her own porn movie.
From everyone here a TTAB have a happy and peaceful holiday with those that matter to you, thank you to everyone who has supported this blog, made comments and sent us links.
A very big thank you to the BBC, Channel 4, Sky News and all the other mainstream media outlets that supressed Climategate, our hit rate went through the ceiling and a lot of our new readers keep coming back.
