Gordon Brown - Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

I've known, everybody has known, for years that our illustrious Prime Minister is not well-acquainted with basic concepts such as 'honesty' and 'truth'. Today, at long last, he has been FORCED into admitting in Parliament that he is .... a LIAR! He did not do so willingly, nor did he do it with good grace. He is despicable!

Read some press comment about it:
Telegraph - Gordon Brown in 'humiliating climbdown' on defence spending
Guardian - Gordon Brown backtracks on claim of annual forces budget rise
Mail - Gordon Brown's apology had shades of a child drinking cod liver oil
BBC - Brown misled Iraq inquiry over defence budget - Cameron
FoxNews - British Prime Minister Brown Admits Misinformation on Defense Spending to War Inquiry
Reuters - Brown forced to change stance on army spending

You get the picture? This deplorable man has at long last been forced to acknowledge, however grudgingly, that he actually made a mistake. Deliberate or not? Well, I have my views on that subject. Basically he will say whatever he thinks is to his political advantage, true or not, if he thinks he can get away with it - and this time there is incontovertible evidence that he has been telling 'porkies'. Retired military personnel have been claiming for years that Brown was responsible for under-funding the military whilst he was Chancellor and he always rebutted their comments. Now we know they were correct and he was wrong. It is quite probable that people in our military have been killed as a result of his 'prudence'. Well, we know all about that - our economy is in ruins thanks to this odious man's twisted view of the world. Pah! Prudence? Don't make me laugh!

Remind me, why is this man still our Prime Minister? Surely to goodness there are a few decent, honourable people in the Labour Party with the guts to rid themselves and us of this liability! I do hope that the British people take it out of Labour's hands at the coming General Election and throw him out of Parliament and Labour out of power for a very long time!

  1. His inability to to support strike breakers was truly reprehensible. This man is unfit to govern this nation, his narrow partisan politics have blinded him to the bigger picture.
