Living in arrogant denial…

Ed Balls has apparently decided in a ‘not listening, not listening’ way that he doesn’t even have to acknowledge the failures of the last labour regime, particularly in regard to the economic mess they left the country in…

Telegraph.

Ed Balls has refused to apologise for Labour’s handling of the economy insisting that the Party was not responsible for the recession.
Speaking ahead of his speech to Labour’s annual conference in Manchester, the shadow chancellor, a friend and ally of Gordon Brown in the last government, insisted he was ‘proud’ of the party’s record, saying the only mistake was failing to regulate the banks firmly enough.
He rejected suggestions that Labour was partly responsible for the current economic climate, saying that the trigger had been the global financial crisis. The downturn had been exacerbated by the Coalition Government’s austerity measures, he added.
In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, Mr Balls turned down repeated requests to apologise for Labour’s record on the economy.

That’s right, he’s actually proud of having taken a country that had an economic surplus to one with massive debts, a hugely increased public sector and government borrowing on a scale that is unbelievable compared to the 90’s. No doubt he’s also proud of Gordon Brown’s raid on the private pensions fund as well as selling off all the UK’s gold cheap.

Balls is in effect the perfect socialist, economically inept and arrogant enough to believe that he does not need to apologise for previous mistakes, hell he won’t even acknowledge that mistakes were even made!

Tax and spend (on unneeded politically correct projects) is all Labour understood, they even started mass printing of banknotes to cover their debts in the same manner as Zimbabwe’s successful economic recovery. They called it quantitative easing, but essentially it was debasing the currency, the only thing that didn’t make it worse was the EU and the USA joined in as well.

The Labour party has ended up with future generations having to pay back the borrowing they undertook to prop up failure after failure, the damnedest thing of all though is that there are idiots out there who will still vote for them regardless…

    QM, I think it’s a waste of time trying to argue with people like Mr Balls. They are recalcitrant in thought, word and deed. They always tend to be socialist of some persuasion and always ensure that it’s others who pay for their actions (which are wilfully or by plain low IQ, or perhaps both forced on the rest of us). Socialists should never be allowed near either money or power because they will always misuse them. That lesson should have been broadcast to our nation at every opportunity by the previous Conservative government and by all non-socialists in the current government. That they don’t tends to suggest that they are all of a kind.

    I don’t know what’s more depressing; the fact that Ed Balls is able to trot out this utter bollocks, or that millions and millions of UK voters will listen and then still vote for the fucker anyway.

    The British political class are a bunch of contemptuous turds, but we – the people – let them get away with it.

    XX the trigger had been the global financial crisis. XX

    Except ther IS no such thing as “the global financial crisis.”

    How CAN there be, when we can afford to give billions after billions to Greece, that are “in such dire straits”, that they can afford to buy a whole new regiment of Abrahms tanks, a new squadron of…I believe F-16s, (Now if they were buaing European weaponary, instead of U.S, then it MAY be said that the contracts were part of the “pay back. But….) a brand new formula 1 race track near Athens, and give away 0.11% of their GDP in “foriegn aid”? Or the U.S can consider starting a THIRD front in their “middle East wars”? Or Britain can afford to pay for THOUSANDS of DNA tets on released prisoners, to see if they once got away with nicking a pack of bratwürst from Woolies? Or Britain, and Germany as well, incidentally, can afford to throw billions in aid to two Asian countries that can afford their own nuclear arsenals, and space programmes? How many other examples are there of similar?

    No. NO “global financial crisis”, just bloody stupid Johnsson on the Wapping omnibus, or wherever it was, being forced to “tighten his belt” so that Governments all over can continue supporting their pet projects.
