The prat who calls himself Alistair Darling the Chancellor of the Exchequer admitted yesterday that he will have to tear up a rose-tinted forecast that Britain's battered economy would begin to grow again in the second half of this year.
'It's worse than we thought' the Chancellor said yesterday when he was interviewed by the Brown Broadcasting Company. In his April 22 budget, the chancellor will predict that the economy will slide by at least 3% this year, its worst single-year performance since the Second World War and three times the rate of decline that he forecast in November in his pre budget report.
Admissions of guilt for underestimating the system don't really make much difference to those who've just lost their job and are worried about losing their home.
We are where we are economically due to a range of mistakes and over-sights that have been well documented throughout the past few months. Wound licking is of little help if an effective long term solution can't be realized soon and is why this government are failing so spectacularly. Any one with a modicum of financial nous was predicting this an hour after the pre budget report was announced.
The fact that dumbledorf Darling could not see what was coming only goes to prove what a useless Chancellor of a useless government he is, stick to playing monopoly with your children please. He will have a job to find enough money to support all those thieving bastards who call themselves MPs and there's no doubt in my mind that the MPs themselves came up with the 2nd-home allowances situation years ago in order to give themselves lots more lolly every year.
Of course they can always pay themselves with monopoly money because thats what the currency is worth!
It's time for a general election.
