It's the stupid economy

10th Apr 2005, 11:00 pm

Chancellor Gordon Brown admitted today that "it's the stupid economy."

"Oh yes, we talk lots of big talk about fiscal policy, redistribution of wealth, trickle-down effect, meritocracy and so on. But it turns out no matter what we do, the poor stay poor and the rich stay rich. Basically, it's just this stupid economy" Mr Brown said at a press conference today, adding "It's like it's got a life of its own."


"I don't want to alarm anybody, but, I have a sneaking suspicion that capitalism itself might be the problem. Oh boy, if that's the case... we're fucked."

Charles Gruber, Vice President of Financial Forecasting at Barclays Bank plc responded to the chancellor's outburst, saying "Well, duh!"
