Gordon “Bottler” Brown, Scottish Prime Minister, Unelected
When Phony Blair was British Prime Minister, “Bottler” Brown escaped close scrutiny. His great success was to claim the credit for an unusually benign world economic situation and a golden legacy from Conservative Chancellor Ken Clarke. He might have got away with the propaganda when he became Prime Minister because “Dobbin” Darling was nicely positioned to take all the blame for the downturn. Unfortunately for “Bottler”, he made the classic mistake of taking propaganda a step too far and claiming that he had abolished boom and bust economics for ever. That claim is now demonstrably hollow, even for his toadies at the BBC, as Britain sinks into a deep depression and economic stagflation.
“Bottler” has managed to increase the number of new crimes, created by his legislation, to three a day and managed to achieve a disaster a day. The electors might have forgiven some of that as just ‘unlucky’ but “Bottler” has demonstrated a great ability to dig every hole deeper. However, it is in the inability to display any backbone that he has succeeded in achieving the worst popularity figures of any Prime Minister in British history. Even Neville Chamberlain managed a better score after his appeasement policy of Nazi Germany was demonstrated to be a serious error when German national socialists rolled into Poland in 1939.
In the matter of backbone, “Bottler” demonstrated a lack of it very early after being crowned Scottish Prime Minister. He had an opportunity to present himself for approval in a General Election and his spin doctors were busy in preparation, when he whimped out. The irony is that even with a total lack of any real policies, he could have won because his sins had not yet begun to find him out.
Since a display of Election Cowardice, “Bottler” has been working hard to demonstrate his lack of confidence and his inability to make, and keep, decisions ever since. Northern Rock became a major problem because he failed to deal with the situation when he was Chancellor, but it became a major tragedy when he failed to take the rapid decisions necessary, deciding instead to let the failed Directors of Northern Rock to privatize the profits, while he nationalized the debts and liabilities.
“Bottler” demonstrated lack of backbone when he arrived late for the signing of the Treaty of Lisbon, in the hope of avoiding the press cameras and total culpability for this act of treason. Later, he demonstrated further lack of backbone when he caved in to Franco-German pressure and agreed to ratify the new European Constitution, so that the Irish could be put under heavy pressure to vote again in a second referendum, having wisely and overwhelmingly rejected the unloved EUSSR Constitution in a first vote. That was lack of international backbone, but for the British the most serious lack of backbone was in reneging on the commitment to allow the British people a referendum on the EUSSR Constitution, AKA the Treaty of Lisbon.
When David Davis resigned as Shadow Home Secretary as a matter of principle to allow, in at least one constituency, the British people to vote on the serious loss of civil liberty resulting from the legislation forced through by “Bottler’s” national socialists, he gave “Bottler” the opportunity to campaign for a national socialist candidate in favour of subjugation of the British people and the removal of their long cherished liberties and democratic rights. Once again “Bottler” whimped out by refusing to allow a national socialist to stand against Davis.
“Bottler’s” lack of backbone is weakening his party. At the Henley by election, “Bottler’s” candidate was forced into 5th place by the alternative national socialist BNP, in the worst result ever for the Labour Party.
