Gordon Brown vs. Keir Hardie
Financial Crisis: Gordon Brown demands £20 bn 'British money' from Iceland - Telegraph
Mr Brown told the BBC: “We are freezing the assets of Icelandic companies in the UK where we can. We will take further action against the Icelandic authorities wherever that is necessary to recover the money.”
A war of words started as Geir Haarde, the prime minister of Iceland, used a press conference to denounce the seizure of Landsbanki assets. The use of anti-terrorism legislation was “not pleasant”, he said.
Of course we want our money back, what losing gambler doesn't; but Gordon Brown is just being a big fat bully and yet again misusing legislation brought in for a specific purpose, no surprise there. And he is lovin' it, he sees this as his moment of destiny, a world leader, the great steersman, beloved protector of his people, the lying bag of shit.
