The Cracks Are Showing….

NuLab sleaze merchant ‘Lord’ Mandelsnake got on his high horse yesterday when an American businessman committed a cardinal sin – telling the truth:
Mr Schultz, chief executive of troubled coffee store giant Starbucks, had earlier told television business network CNBC, that "the concern for us is Western Europe and specifically the UK. The UK is in a spiral".
It certainly is. But to the well-paid liars in the government, such dissent from the official outlook cannot be brooked:
Asked later about the comments, a clearly furious Lord Mandelson responded to the Telegraph: "Why should I have that guy running down the country? Who the ---- is he?"
He’s the CEO of a major multinational company, Mandelsnake. He should be asking who the ---- you are….

In fact, we should all be asking that. As well as ‘Who the hell put you there, and why…?’
In his address to the CFR, he insisted that governments must keep their nerve in the face of public pressure for quick solutions to the economic crisis, But the Telegraph has learned that a priority for the visit by one of Labour's most combative political operators was to battle what British officials believe are overly negative perceptions of the UK economy in the US media.
And obviously, the way to do that is by getting in a public hissy fit about hearing the truth.

He’s losing it, isn’t he…?

The UK is in trouble, but many other EU nations are far more exposed than we are - just that fewer people are mentioning it.

I expect the reality to hit home within 6 - 12 months.

"I expect the reality to hit home within 6 - 12 months."
