Two revealing 'private' conversations

'Private' Conversation 1

Yesterday in Rochdale Brown exposed his true self, saying he wanted to meet/speak to the general public (instead of a group of stage-managed supporters), presenting a (false) smiling image and talking to a concerned Grandmother Gillian Duffy.  Forgetting his microphone was still on he then left and proceeded to his car, calling the whole event 'a disaster', blaming organizers and calling the Grandmother he'd spoken to 'bigoted'.  Brown initially tried to deflect it, but his head once again had to fall into his hands as he was confronted with his own words live on Radio.  I'm afraid this person, never elected to be leader of the country, and who as chancellor is also personally responsible for creating the crisis, clearly demonstrates Poweromics (A person using position and power for their own personal gain, based on poor moral values, self interest and greed).  Indeed in the final leaders debate tonight he demonstrated this further, e.g. deflecting blame, hiding the truth, lying to people and trying to creating fear in the electorate.  He continually focused on highlighting the risk to tax credits, the system he personally created as Chancellor (using borrowed money) to systematically increase dependency on his party in order to strike fear in people tempted to vote for anyone else - however it does not appear to be working. For instance the Liberal Democrats have made it clear they are only considering reducing it for those earning over £50k and far more people are starting to see through Brown's veneer and not listen to him anymore.

'Private' Conversation 2

David Hale, a US economist, has claimed that the governor of the Bank of England told him "tough" budgetary measures would be necessary in the UK. He said Governor Mervyn King had said the measures would keep whoever wins the next election "out of power for a whole generation". The Bank of England refused to comment directly but confirmed the two men had a private meeting early last month. Mr Hale, who said he met the governor in London last week, said that the Governor told him that if the government failed to come up with a credible plan to reduce the budget deficit (one of the highest in Europe) the UK's credit rating would be downgraded - increasing uncertainty about the outlook for the uk economy and its ability to pay back its debt. The parties have already been criticised by the Institute for Fiscal Studies for not providing enough detail on their plans and Mr King's reported remarks suggest that some senior policymakers think the deficit reduction plans will have a big impact. The road ahead is now increasingly clear to everyone ... though only through another 'private conversation' being exposed.
