We know it as Brown’s Bottom, Gordon Brown’s sell-off of our gold in 1999-2002 after suppressing the price to 20-year lows. Alot of rumour has swirled around since then as to why, but when you’re as bonkers and incompetent as McRuin what other reason do you need?
Thomas Pascoe in The Telegraph makes his own allegations: he alleges that Brown sold off our gold as cheaply as possible so that a number of troubled banks could profit.
It seems we learn of incredible corruption every day now. The scale, frequency and sheer brazenness of the organised crime is too much to take in, even by someone like me who regards the government/banking nexus as just that, organised crime. But if these allegations are true then it’ll blow my socks off.
It’s getting to the point I don’t even want criminal investigations into the Ruling Class anymore. I just want to hang them all.
