So Tony Blair has said he will stand down at last. Can't say I am happy having seen his rather pathetic speech which the media are all over; bad as he is, Brown is worse.
'I did what I thought was right'.
..what sort of comment is that on 10 years of work? Anyone would surely say this about themselves apart from a total psychotic. I guess he reached this point as all his supposed achievements have nearly unwound themselves.
On that note, interest rates have gone up another .25% today which is no great surprise given the dismal underlying economic state of the country. I am not a pessimist by nature, but the state of public finances is very poor considering we are at the top of the cycle in terms of economic growth. interest rates will top at at 6%, which is alot if you have 5x salary owing on your mortgage like a lot of people.
What economy will Gordon Brown inherit? It is not he legacy that Major left for Blair, that is for sure.
I am not pleased at all that Brown is to be PM; an awful man with poor judgement and quick to anger. None of these are qualities needed in a Prime Minister. Sadly I don't think he is stupid enough to go for a snap election.
And with these comments, I am off for a break far away.
In the meantime for your delectation, the site will be looked after by the super-intelligent and incisive:
Mr. Nick Drew
He will no doubt do a better job than me in keeping you entertained for a couple of weeks.
See you all later.
