Is Gordon Brown
Really As Stupid And Out Of Touch With Reality As He Seems To
Gordon Brown claims that Britain needs to match America and `unite around
the next round of enterprise reforms and the drive towards a more dynamic
(Who the hell writes the man's speeches and
`During the Industrial Revolution,' says Brown,' `Britain led
the world in innovation, science and enterprise. It is time to rediscover that
spirit and genius in the world of the internet and digitalisation.'
Brown really be so out of touch that he doesn't know that his Government has
more or less destroyed entrepreneurial activity in Britain?
really be so stupefyingly stupid that he doesn't understand that the miles of
red tape which his Government has produced (and the kilometres of red tape which
the EU has foisted upon us) have strangled many small companies - and are

wouldn't trust him to cut my lawn. If he promises never again to interfere with
any aspect of British business life I will happily send him a sick note to last
until he claims his pension.
