What a bunch of cuts

After reading Paul Waugh's report on the planned Labour spending cuts, I have to wonder about the sanity of our leaders. I mean, we've been spending money we don't have like drunken sailors on their first night back in port and the manic mincing madman and Call Me Dave are planning to cut back on spending by a whole fucking 10%? But only if you add up the cuts over the next FIVE FUCKING YEARS??????

Jesus, why bother? These fuckers really are fucking deluded, aren't they? It's like trimming someone's fingernails, when you actually need to amputate their gangrenous arm.

We really, really are SO fucked, aren't we?

Yes it is a bit pathetic, but I remember a year ago, the Tories said they planned to spend by £5 bn less than Labour, i.e. the Tories increase spending [over whatever period] by 4% whereas Labour planned to increase it by 5%, so we've moved on a bit from there.

The downside is, our starting point is £175 billion worse than it was a year ago. Ho hum.

The whole situation is giving me brain ache.

Here's a joke to take your mind of it...

Woman gets dozen roses off her husband . She complains to her mate, "Its all very nice, but now I shall have to spend all weekend on my back with my legs open."

Her mate says, "Naaah don't be silly - use a vase."

UK is in worse shape than any country I, as economist, have looked at. Short-term debt, ie IOUs that have to be paid back within a year adds up to 300% of GDP. The total debt with gov+individuals+business is over 350% of GDP. This in combination with all the fixit and mumbo jumbo Brownie and the rest of the idiots are doing is bad in itself, but there are worse things going on like the massive inflations through QE and the housing bubble. Ever wondered why prices on housing are going up despite high unemployment etc? The main reason is that banks buy real-estate and housing from themselves. Yepp, it’s true. UK banks are messing things up into total madness at the same time as all the rest is going on. Labour is going down in history as the worst government ever existed; sadly UK is going down with ‘em. You guys will have total upheaval within a year or two… buy vodka, you are going to need it…

We are all doomed, i am building a space ship out of the over printed money the bank of England is presiding over, the fuel will be Gordon brown. I intend to go to mars and start a new. Who is with me?

Will brown have to live out his life in some foreign land like Idi amin to stop us lynching the fat fuck.
I would guess his kids have chosen the names they will live under when they are old enough to leave.
