Pull the other one

Gordon Brown, writing in the Telegraph, October 2008: "markets work best when underpinned by an ethic of fairness". "The first financial crisis of the global age has now laid bare the weaknesses of unbridled free markets".

Alistair Darling, Independent on Sunday, 15 January 1996: "It is not up to the Goverment to say that the banks can only make so much profit".
(Note that back then Darling was already Gordon Brown's deputy. He then went on to work with him the Treasury during Labour's first term in office.)

Brown and Blair work for the Bankers. Bankers control Democracy. Central Banks create money from nothing, Governments borrow and tax us to pay the is a scam.
