The “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” Surfaces…

in England

Gordon Brown has accused the Tories of trying to “scare” people into accepting a “bleak” future with talk of the record deficit.

In a speech to centre-left European leaders the prime minister attacked the response of the “well-financed right wing” to the financial crisis.

…”This well-financed right wing are not only trying to blame governments for the crisis, but trying to use legitimate concerns about deficits to scare people into accepting a bleak and austere picture of the future for the majority.”

He accused “the right-wing” of “using the cloak of action” on debt to hide their “real position” – which he said was “an ideology that would always make government the problem and deny people the helping hand that government can be”.

Spend spend spend…that’s always the answer from these folks, isn’t it?

    England,France,and unfortunately, the US are being
    run by people who no longer
    are ‘caretakers of civilization’,but are actually ‘destroyers of civilization’.
    I know this is a concept from the book ‘Mein Kampf’
    but it applies here.Their
    incompetency and lack of loyalty to one’s own people
    creates a geometric effect of their incompetency.It destroys
    all that it touches.In previous historical situations,by
    loyalty to one’s nation.
    incompetency was negated

    Europe is waking up to the fact that the welfare state is unsustainable. We just can’t make everyone secure from cradle to grave. We can’t afford the limited entitlements we have now; what makes people think that we can add more? Greece is our future if we don’t change course now.

  4. Well I for one vastly prefer Brown’s stodgy seriousness to Cameron’s vapidness. The only thing Cameron has going for him is Labour fatigue and a fresh new face. Honestly, if Cameron put a little more gel in his hair, and spoke more animatedly and in a higher pitch, he’d be indistinguishable from Blair.
