Hoon Of The Day

Not before time, Robert Peston, ghastly little unofficial spokesweasel for Gordon Brown, who should be hung drawn and quartered for his pivotal role in screwing the banks shareholders to enable the government to nationalise them on the cheap.

Utter cunt!

Smug hoon of the day in that picture. Loving it on how much a year?

Lord Haw-Haw.

Damn it, the men even sound the same. "Jairmany calling, Jairmany calling, your baarnks are bust, Goorden to the resue".

Hang the fucker... oops, sorry, naturally we need to observe his human rights. Then we can hang the fucker!

Joe said...

Don't hang 'im, leave 'im in a room with 100 RBS/HBOS shareholders for 15mins.

Light blue touch paper and retire :D

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending the man but surely the banks were bust anyway?

And surely the fault for that lies with the people at the top of the banks, not Robert Peston?

Graeme said...

Oliver - the banks weren't bust. The share prices were falling, encouraged by Peston's leaking of "rumours" that can only have emanated from downing St.

John Pickworth said...

Arh yes, just like they manipulated the Train Industry in 2001.

Rail Track asked the Government for a £700 million advance of their subsidy to meet the Government's required track repairs/upgrades but the Government instead refused and put them into administration. Immediately afterwards the Government inject £1.5 billion! More than was needed by the previously private company... and they further set aside another £4 billions!

So, one nationalised company snapped up for nothing, tax payers on the hook for even greater subsidies and they massively increased fares for their users (via renegotiated access contracts for the train companies).

I'm just pleased we don't have a large indigenous car industry now... because you can bet your life this Government would have pulled the same stunt there too. By now Jaguar would be building a 'peoples car' designed by Herr Mandelson.

Is anyone beginning to get a sense yet just how dangerous this Government is? I'm only asking because we seem to keep letting them get away with the same stunts over and over again.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

What was Pestons considered view on whether Lloyds should have taken over HBOS ( before the event )?

Hoon of the week ?
