Dude, where’s my credit rating?Posted: February 24, 2013
One moment you’re in a pizza restaurant in Davos with all your mates – BloJo is recounting lewd stories of semi-naked volleyball players glistening like wet ottters under the muggy London sun; Dave is telling the waiter that he is very clear about vaguely knowing that he wants – either the margarita or meat feast, although, maybe, he fancies the pasta. The next thing you know you’ve had too many Advocaats and have woken up in some sleazy five-star shack in downtown Geneva. You don’t know where you are. Your head is spinning and you wished you tried harder at whatever it was you did at uni. Because right now a letter has some how turned into a fucking number. That’s impossible, you tell yourself. That’s like arch-pant wetters the Lib Dems joining the Tory party in some kind… But wait, that did happen… and oh … shit … you kind of said a few things awhile back about how a particular letter would never turn into a particular number.
At least that’s what, kinda, happened to Tory fudwit George Osborne. The professional towel-folder awoke to the news that Moody’s has downgraded the UK’s credit rating from AAA to AA1. AAA shiiittt. And now it’s becoming crushingly clear that a triple-dip is not a type of sandwich at Subway, but one of the shittier economic sticks that gets passed around.
No doubt the UK’s forums reacted in a measured way.
Britain will take years to earn back AAA rating, says Ken Clarke
By Rowena Mason, The Telegraph
Let’s get the pro-UKIP posts out the way.
UKIP or DEATH for BRITAIN
Sorry rgh, NOTHING will stem the oncoming flood, -kriste, it’s EU LAW, and we have NO say. Only UKIP will act on this nightmare.
This is true. Since in a democracy all governments bribe their way into power by offering the dumb-ass electorate free everything in exchange for votes, it is likely that we would now be worse off under a Labour government. Labour bribery historically has had the populist edge over Conservative bribery.
Yeah, democracy’s well shit, init.
From the crank file…
Ken Clarke is a boring old fart who wouldn’t know if his a*se was on fire. I watched him on Sky this morning and his lickspittle responses, presumably prompted by his desire to to hang onto a cabinet job at all costs, were downright embarrassing.
People like him are the problem for the Tories – self-indulgent Leftie PC trendoids with upper class accents – who have the intestinal fortitude of a pea. He is totally out of touch with the severity of Britain’s economic situation as experienced by the ordinary people of Britain and only is concerned with the continuity of regular contact between his ample rear-end and the velour of his taxpayer-funded chauffeured limousine.
“Intestinal fortitude of a pea” – frickin’ genius.
Slash taxes now or you’ll lose the Election, Osborne is warned: Rebel Tory hits out after AAA blow
By SIMON WALTERS, The Mail
Background: Article details Tory MP Adam Afriyie’s view that you’ve gotta slash to grow.
Whats Andi Peters talking about now?
Basically, the joke is Mr Afriyle is black.
The best thing to get any economy moving is to “SLASH TAXES” However,Here is BRITAINS PROBLEM……. You have a , MARXIST LABOUR, or COMMUNIST LIBERALS, then you will continue to be shackeld with politicians who REWARD SHIRKERS” and “PENALIZE WORKERS”
Another from the crank file
Sadly Cameron is a globalist and as such will never give us a referendum voluntarily. Its not just prospect of Britain floating which terrifies globalists, its the possibility that we might form something better with our friends. We are told that we need to be part of a union in order to survive. Well there are countries out there with whom we share culture, history and blood. Imagine how strong a true union of Britain, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand would be; who knows maybe Scandinavia and the Netherlands would join as well. We do not need to be part of the undemocratic EU in order to build something wonderful!
Such a move would seriously wound the EU and put us smack bang in the middle of the three largest trading blocks. We have never been truly happy since our leaders abandoned our brothers in favour of the EU; we need to reestablish our historical bonds before they vanish forever.
George Osborne under pressure as Britain loses AAA rating for first time
By Jill Treanor and Rajeev Syal, The Guardian
Never mind Osborne we can ring payday loans, they can HELP even if we have bad credit…right?
@jaylar – that is basically Balls and Labour economic plan.
[Couple of paragraphs of obligatory Osborne bashing before…]
If Osbourne was a racehorse he’d be in a beef lasagne by now.
To the tune of Flash by Queen.
Credit rating blow to cost taxpayers £100bn: Humiliating downgrade may hit gilts and sterling
Holy Crap Flash Gidiot, we only have twenty four hours to save this small part of the planet from your incompetence!
Flash a-ah, Savior of the Bullingdon
He’ll screw every one of us
King of the incompetent.
GUARDIAN DEATH THREAT WATCH
For all the savage anger of the right-wing rags, The Guardian leads the way in death threats.
Time to drink hemlock, osborne.
Legend has it that in hell all the towels have an annoying wrinkle that is impossible to smooth out. But you will have plenty of time to practise…….we hope you enjoy your stay.
Not been the greatest starts to a year for a Chancellor has it? He can’t have won the wishbone at Christmas.
@AlexCook – Indeed. He could have at least choked on it.
It would be good to see Osborne shredded both personally and politically – lol
Unbelievably, some of those posts were recommended.
If he printed AA on his forehead he would look like the hologram from red dwarf
The economy’s smegged.
@lillycoll – I just love the satirical comments, its almost as if you believe the bull that you post.Thanks. Is all very entertaining.Do tell, is Ed Balls like some South Korean communist dictator?
Yes, that notorious bastion of Bolsheviks, neighboured by the capitalist running dogs of North Korea.
Labour has broken this country, stripping the very fabric of our society to almost third world levels.
@nacom – Tories have broken this county, stripping the very fabic of our society to almost third world levels, Fixed that for you, No need to thank me,
That super-veg nori wrap I ate at Pret was clearly the product of a third-world country.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Oscar special.
