Gordon Brown is toast

Quote:
Mr Moore, who was sacked after raising concerns over excessive risk-taking at HBOS, said Mr Brown should be "held accountable for his failure to oversee the stability of the country".

Following his explosive evidence to the Commons Treasury Committee last week, Mr Moore said he is planning to send the MPs a further dossier of 30 documents which will point the finger of blame for the bust at Mr Brown.

After Mr Moore's revelations forced the resignation of the deputy chairman of the Financial Services Authority Sir James Crosby, Mr Brown told another parliamentary committee that HBOS's massive losses - estimated at more than £10 billion - were caused not by Government policy but by the bank's flawed business model.

But Mr Moore, who was head of risk at HBOS from 2002 to 2005, today told the Independent on Sunday: "The failure goes right to the heart of the system - to the internal supervisory system and right to the top of government.

"Brown must go. He cannot remain in office.

"He has presided over the biggest boom in the history of the country as well as one of the biggest busts.



Gordon Brown must go, says HBOS whistleblower Paul Moore - Telegraph




Oh, I hope it's true.

I wish only the best for the folks in the U.K. Americans know all too well, bad politics for the past eight years and greedy wall street investors. Now, the rest of us working class heroes are left to pick up the pieces.

Get rid of Brown, put Miliband in his place.

mr brown is "one-eyed Scottish idiot". He declared the end of 'boom and bust' economic cycles by encouraging the biggest debt-fuelled bubble in history.
