He's on a roll now, must be gearing up for a snap election, self proclaimed saviour of the global economy, Gordon Brown has today called on Petrol retailers to reduce the price at the pump. Good call Gordon, but don't kid us that you and the man with the dodgy eyebrows aren't taking the largest slice of a litre of unleaded with your 65-70% fuel excise duty and your 17.5% VAT on top.
When you've finished telling petrol stations what to do, why don't you start telling the banks that we tax payers now own to start lending us our own money at competitive rates. So far you've nationalised or bailed out our biggest mortgage and financial institutions with upto £500 Billion of our future taxes (no doubt higher taxes) - HBOS, BBG (M-Ex) ,LTSB, RBS (Natwest), Northern Rock but they still aren't passing on the recent BOE base rate cut.

What next, are you single handedly going to end world starvation, reverse climate change, save every endangered animal, find a cure for cancer, aids, the ageing process and create global peace and harmony:rolleyes: ?

He only wants a lower price so when he puts his planned extra tax on top everyone will thinks its to do with oil prices :mad:.

As for the Banks, it seems somewhat ironic that Mr Brown is taking the credit ;) when in actual fact I think it was Keynes and his colleagues that came up with the original idea so many years ago. Credit where credit's due and it certainly isn't to Messrs Brown and Darling.

My personal theory is that when the banks share prices increase, which they undoubtedly will, than Mr Brown will cash in his chips, waste the money on further unnecessary public spending (forget about paying back the debt) and proclaim himself Emperor of the 'New Britain'.

Confusion reigns and so does Mr Brown - question is for how long?

Only if elected to another term, see page 82 of the Labour Manifesto.
