The UK Government
The Brown Government
Gordon Brown told the UK (and world leaders) that he had saved British Citizens on 9th of October 2008 when his Chancellor forced the Kaupthing UK bank into liquidation. He had not. In fact, Alistair Darling had thrown thousands of British Citizens into hell. And then had locked the door.
The unelected ‘leader’ Gordon Brown then went on to tell the British public that he had to stay in office because British Citizens needed him. When the British public (despite the almost-as-bad alternatives) showed they didn’t, he clung to power like a third rate dictator until the last possible moment. Let’s hope the world never has to hear the voice of Gordon Brown ever again.
Cherie Blair was right when she was heard by a journalist calling Gordon Brown a liar at a Labour Party conference (which she later denied when asked). Gordon Brown has to go down in history as the worst Prime Minister the UK has had since Ted Heath. Thatcher was bad enough, but Brown certainly takes the biscuit.
Thousands of British citizens are still in sheer hell two years on, it was the Gordon Brown government that put them there and it was the Gordon Brown government that refused to even acknowledge the facts, let alone sort out the mess it caused! Shame on the UK Labour Party.
The shame of Lord Myners
As Paul Myners sat on his high horse and flicked threats at Iceland he ignored the damage being inflicted on innocent British citizens by his own Chancellor Alistair Darling!
Myners conveniently forgot that it was the Blair/Brown/Darling Government who brought out 'Know your customer' rules in 2007 that meant overseas Brits could no longer open or maintain UK bank accounts.
Myners didnt notice that it was the UK's Financial Services Authority who advised the Isle of Man KSF bank to put huge sums in a bank it knew was dodgy.
Myners seems or overlook that it was his Chancellor, Alistair Darling, who ignored the Brits who had been forced to use offshore banks when he forced the London Kaupthing Hf bank into liquidation.
Myners joined in the cynical cover ups that the Darling/McCarthy-Fry/Pearson/Sants used to ignore the dreadful plight of the British people plunged into desperation by Darling’s bungling.
And he calls himself a 'Lord', shame on the Queen for making such a terrible man a Lord..
