Gordon Brown the Big Feartie 183

I do not claim any direct link between my declaration in Kirkcaldy that I was seeking nomination as a SNP Westminster candidate and fancied taking on Gordon Brown, and his subsequent decision to let the media know he intends to stand down and not fight! But it is an act of remarkable political cowardice from a man who so spectacularly promised No voters massive devolution of powers to the Scottish parliament. That Brown promise was given more publicity by the mainstream media than any other event in the entire referendum campaign. The fact that Brown never had any locus to deliver what he was promising was bound at some stage to become acutely embarrassing. He now escapes responsibility for the cynical lies of his pledges, by simply running away.

Brown was always a feartie. He was scared to stand against Tony Blair for leader, scared to call a general election early when he could have averted Labour’s electoral disaster. He was even scared to stick to his guns when for once he got something right and called that dreadful woman a bigot.

Brown contributed directly to the crippling poverty of millions by his disastrous deregulation of the City of London and years of giving the bankers everything they desired. Nor must we allow the mainstream media unchallenged to cement the lie that there was no alternative to trillions of pounds in grants and effective subsidies from taxpayers being given direct to the fatcat bankers, which have crippled the public finances for generations. Letting bad banks go bust and bad bankers go on the dole (or hopefully jump) was a far better option. Contrary to the Brown myth, world recession was not averted. It happened, massively. The only thing saved was the multi-million incomes of the people whose greed and stupidity had caused the collapse.

Brown remains the greatest friend the bankers ever had.

Brown and Darling lead a large phalanx of Labour MPs who realise their best career move is to transit to the benches of the House of Lords while the going is good, and start pocketing their 300 pounds a day allowance for doing nothing but hoovering up comfy directorships.

I fear that they will find that Scottish independence is coming sooner than they think and that gig will soon get cut short too.

As for Brown’s devolution promises, frankly I don’t give a damn about the Smith Commission. Holyrood control of income tax is meaningless if most other taxes are set in London. Fiscal autonomy can only work if Scotland is given all its taxes, including those from hydrocarbons and from whisky. That will never happen. Any tax and spend devolution which reserves oil and whisky taxes to the UK Treasury will be perverted by Westminster, to only result in further public spending cuts for Scotland. Besides, if Westminster can still send our children to fight and die in illegal wars, the money is immaterial.

Which brings us back to Gordon Brown. Remember not only did he first deregulate the bankers then give them huge transfers from poor families’ taxes, he backed Blair to the hilt over the invasion of Iraq. Without Brown’s support, Blair could not have done it, and hundreds of thousands would not have died – nor would we have ISIS and linked chaos now.

Brown is an evil man.

    “Fred – there are multiple mods on tonight. I believe that empty comment is not directed at you though.”

    That’s nice to know.

    So which one of us isn’t he talking to?

    As a reply to all the furore, here is the apparently ‘offending’ part of my origal comment re Gordon Brown: ‘According to ‘The Seeker’, Gordon Brown is also a paedophile (which would make him very ‘evil’ indeed!). I am just quoting ‘The Seeker’; to my knowledge, Brown has not sued for defamation.’ Hardly actionable, IMO.

    Here is another website’s post on the subject:

    ‘1) Gordon Brown – English journalist Mike James claims former Prime Minister Brown is a well-known pedophile. James worked in the mainstream media and was first told of Brown’s perversions by Norman Lamont (Chancellor of the Exchequer 1990-93) at a private party in 1986.

    He later did his own research into the man, and wrote in 2010: “Gordon Brown, the current British prime minister, is a practicing pedophile whose activities are known not only to the British, American and Israeli intelligence services, but also by Rupert Murdoch and his senior editor at the Sunday Times.”

    The fact that intelligence services have dirt on Brown means he is controlled. He can be blackmailed at a moment’s notice. Brown became Prime Minister because of his perversions, not in spite of them.

    Mike James places Brown as a member of a ring of senior British pedophiles, including Lord Robertson and Lord Peter Mandelson. All of them are major members of Masonic lodges…’

    ‘.”In early 2003, British police began to close in on some top suspects in the Operation Ore investigation, including senior members of Blair’s government.Police also discovered links between British Labour government pedophile suspects and the trafficking of children for purposes of prostitution from Belgium and Portugal (including young boys from the Casa Pia orphanage in Portugal).”To hide the scandal, Blair issued a D-Notice, resulting in a gag order on the press from publishing any details of the investigation. This allowed his buddies to be discharged without public outcry…’ (same link as above).

    Hear Alastair Campbell reflect on the ‘brilliant but at times nightmare’ Gordon Brown http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02d8s6q

    Alastair Campbell reflects on Gordon Brown’s political career

    Former director of communications to Tony Blair, Alastair Campbell worked closely on the New Labour election campaign alongside Gordon Brown, who succeeded Blair as Prime Minister in 2007.

    “At his best he was absolutely brilliant…but at other times he could be a nightmare to work with”.

    Mr Campbell remembers how he felt closer to Gordon Brown in his earliest days as a journalist “but the relationships became difficult for all of us when we had to decide if Gordon or Tony would get the job”.

    Reflecting on the notorious relationship between Blair and Brown “I know that Blair came close to pushing him out of his government. I don’t know who was Lennon or who was McCartney”
