That man Brown

Compare and contrast:



Broon's reply is here:



For those who cannot be bothered with the erms and ums etc,

"One question saw "Jazza" ask the Prime Minister what he could do for the country that nobody else could. The PM replied that he was determined and focussed on changing the country and on giving everyone the chance to make "the most of their talents"."Why do I want to do this job, because there are things that I can do, I want every child and every young person in this country to have the chance to realise the potential to the full."My idea in life, why I get up in the morning is everyone should have the chance to make the most of there talents, that's what I am determined to do." Note he does not even begin to answer the thrust of the question, and one might wonder whether wits at Downing Street made this the lead video in order to hold Brown up to richly deserved ridicule and contempt.


Generally Brown's rather sad attempts to get down wiv the kids are not worthy of note, but the OECD has just lacerated the post '97 regime's approach to youth unemployment etc, and here , in a handy table are the figures:


As ever, click for heightened visibility, but the key points are an increase in NEETs, a fall in the employment rate, a rise in the unemployment rate and a higher unemployment rate for the low skilled relative to the OECD average. So, for the last 12 years he has been party to being 'determined and focussed on changing the country and on giving everyone the chance to make "the most of their talents". With great success, evidently.

Nice to see this meeting of minds.

They clearly have so very much in common.
