New Game - Today Gordon Says

OK, we should have played this with our mate Soundbite Tone but unfortunately we missed the opportunity but here goes...

Each day we get a soundbite instruction from Whitehall/Westminster. We post it here and I bet you that by the time he's ousted some of these instructions have swung a full 180 degrees

So today we have

GORDON SAYS

More than 110,000 "problem families" with disruptive youngsters will be targeted as part of a crackdown on knife crime, Gordon Brown has said.
They will get parenting supervision, with the worst 20,000 families facing eviction if they do not respond.
The prime minister, who backed more curfews for young people, aimed to make it "unacceptable" to carry a knife Meanwhile the home secretary denied she wanted to make youngsters caught with knives visit stab victims in hospital.



So how do we define "Problem Families"??

The ironic thing about life is that no one gets out alive...Huh

Obviously it's those who live in social housing! It seems that Gord hasn't taken into account that some scrotes live in houses with a mortgage.

[SIZE="4"]Brown defends fuel duty decision [/SIZE]

Gordon Brown has defended a decision to postpone a 2p rise in fuel duty after David Cameron suggested it was timed to coincide with next week's by-election.

The prime minister said the move, which comes as oil prices continue to hit new peaks, would help people facing high food and fuel bills.

But the Conservative leader asked if it had "anything to do with the Glasgow East by-election".

Mr Brown said it was right to announce it before the Commons' summer break.

The price of unleaded petrol has risen 25% over the past year and pressure has been mounting for duty to be cut.




Nothing to be synical about there then.

Personally I think that the whole issue of fuel taxation is going to burst very soon. The truckies have made there piece heard but there are many many other businesses that are suffering as a result.

He's all heart really, isn't he?

But then again:

"The exchequer will this year benefit from around £16 billion pounds in tax by the oil and gas industry"

So I guess in view of that windfall, he can afford to be bit magnanimous!

Today (ok pretty late yesterday) Gordon Says

[SIZE="4"]Brown outlines Niger Delta help [/SIZE]

Britain will work with Nigeria to improve security in the oil-rich Niger Delta region, Gordon Brown has said.

Following talks with Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua, the prime minister said the UK would help "identify a training and advisory support package".

President Yar'Adua said he wanted to see the creation of a maritime security training centre in the lawless region.

Attacks on the inshore Niger Delta have helped drive up world oil prices and cut Nigeria's output.

President Yar'Adua said restoring security in the area could allow Nigeria to provide an additional 1.2m barrels of oil a day to the global market.

"This will impact generally on the world energy situation," he said.






Do you think that they will suggest slapping ASBO's on the guerillas?

And come to think of it, what about our Lawless state?!?!

I guess if you can't get support at home you need to go touting for it elsewhere

We seem to be struggling with stopping 15 year olds knifing each other for mobile phones.

It will be interesting to see how Gordon intends to deal with heavily armed oil pirates.

I think you're probablyright though Slips......he'll go down the ASBO route.

That'll learn 'em!
