“We’ve just got to get ourselves ready in case it goes wrong tomorrow. And I mean really wrong. Even if there’s a panic in another country, people will see it on the TVs, and they’ll start panicking here. It’s got to be given a chance to work…
If the banks are shutting their doors, and the cashpoints aren’t working, and people go to Tesco and their cards aren’t being accepted, the whole thing will just explode. If you can’t buy food or petrol or medicine for your kids, people will just start breaking the windows and helping themselves. And as soon as people see that on TV, that’s the end, because everyone will think that’s OK now, that’s just what we all have to do. It’ll be anarchy. That’s what could happen tomorrow.
I’m serious, I’m serious . . . We’d have to think: do we have curfews, do we put the Army on the streets, how do we get order back? I’d have to resign, but I couldn’t go if there was just carnage out there: someone would have to be in charge.”Thus did Gordon, B predict the 2011 riots three years before they occurred.
Army on the streets, eh, Gordon?
The Daily Mail:
“He was the most unstable and ill-suited figure to have held power in Downing Street since Robert Walpole... He had an interior reality which was quite alien to the world inhabited by most other people…Brown is a monster all right. Certifiably insane perhaps. But worse than Blair? Hardly. Tony Blair is the greatest traitor in all British history.
Many expected Brown’s aggression and undermining of others to cease once he had achieved the highest office. But he could not change the habits of his political lifetime. Rather, they intensified. He saw fresh enemies everywhere… At the heart of the underground operation was McBride... He gave McBride a free rein while washing his hands of any of the dirty details. The regime created an atmosphere of fear... Their tactics were indeed more akin to dictators like Stalin than respected democratic leaders…
The Brown premiership was certainly the most chaotic and unstable in the last century, and possibly in the entire 275 years of British premiership. It… was fatally handicapped, not just by Brown’s inability to earn respect, but also by his squandering of national financial resources, much of it motivated by a desire for popularity.”
And the British people voted for him three times. Just as they did Thatcher.
‘If you always do what you always did you’ll always get what you always got,’ as they say.
