Dodgy logic

This, from the TUC:

"TUC calls for a green economy to be built from the rubble of the greed economy"

(blah)

"And while of course statisticians must do their job, I see a hidden agenda in much talk of recovery. If the economy is on the mend they argue, then we can go back to business as usual. There is no need for further action on jobs, no need for proper regulation, no need to crack down on the tax havens. The neoliberal model is not bust, and we don't need to build another kind of economy".

Works for me....

Not for Brendan Barber, or more likely his speech writer:

"And unless we build a green economy out of the rubble of the greed economy, the next global crisis will surely be even worse.

'So the choice we face is clear - to retreat into the global comfort zone of business as usual or to give globalisation a human face, and our planet a fighting chance of survival. Let's make sure we do the right thing".

It is enough to make Aristotle weep. Any submissions of Barberisms would be most welcome.

And, of course, if the UK does recover sooner than the continentals do it will be down to Brown's largesse not because we still just about have a slightly more flexible economy...

Yep, that's the spin they're trying to get accepted as the historical truth.
