OMG, you can't make this up. Gordon Brown, British socialist preaching family value. Since when socialists care about family value? They have been trying to dismantle it for decades. This is so disingenuous.

(from "Irrational Exuberance" to "Mark to Zero": from '96 to '09)
"Family Values"???? What the hell is this guy talking about? Whose family values? Obamas? Browns? Gays? Muslims?
I'd rather my banker just kept "bankers values". At least then you'll know what you're dealing with.

(Sarah Palin: Americas last, best hope for survival.)
Most people who have worked hard to build up their firm or shop don't understand why any company would give rewards for failure...
Isn't exactly what your government is doing when it bails out banks, Mr. Brown?

(Become a free market capitalist. Accept no substitutes.)
The psychotic abusive father who is about 6000 paychecks in debt to his drug dealer is now lecturing the cowering frightened children about the value of money.
Why not? He is a son of the manse after all. Socialism in Britain, as has often been observed, owes as much to Methodism as it does to Marx.
What I find disingenous with this message is that if he really believes it is a serious priority, why wasn’t he saying so 10-15 years back when the economy was booming on the back of his debt based customer credit policies? His conversion comes too late and just too conveniently for me.

Yes, and a pack of feral dogs needs some table manners. Alas, neither is going to become reality anytime soon.
