You know what he recommends about GERS?September 10, 2017 Tim WorstallRagging on Ritchie12 CommentsYes, you guessed it. Country by country reporting within the UK. previousThe Senior Lecturer Will Still Keep His Eye On Deloitte And All Such Despotic EnemiesnextErm, no 12 thoughts on “You know what he recommends about GERS?” john77 September 10, 2017 at 1:46 pm His excuse for ignoring the ONS report is that it is implausible that 54% of the UK deficit will be due to 16% of the population. It is, in fact, utterly plausible because Labour set out to transfer money from Conservative areas to Labour-supporting areas at every opportunity. moqifen September 10, 2017 at 3:06 pm why the fat man sat in an ely bedroom knows better than full time statisticians employed by the scottish government and multiple real professors who back the accuracy of the gers figures is one of those conumdrums until you realise that he’s desperate to have some sort of relevance on the national stage. After being dumped by corbyn he’s thrashing around shouting look at me! which is why he has an opinion on everything and anything – witness his attack on rees mogg. He should be committed to a locked room entirely walled with mirrors (and definitely no internet access) so he can preen himself to death. moqifen September 10, 2017 at 4:30 pm of course it should read “why the fat man sat in an ely bedroom thinks he knows better” Dennis the Peasant September 10, 2017 at 5:34 pm Third, interpreting GERS is nigh on impossible when the data as presented is so flawed that meaningful interpretation is not possible. This sentence caused coffee to be deposited on the screen of my computer. Haven’t had that good a laugh in a couple of days. Worthy of Amanduh Marcotte back in her Pandagon days… Bongo September 10, 2017 at 6:16 pm I wonder if someone could ask him for the data on what his proposal would cost, and the error margin. And if he doesn’t have the answer to then ask if Scotland deserves better data.

He and Jolyon can take it in turns. moqifen September 10, 2017 at 10:20 pm In his latest gers nonsense he believes that he has “won” the debate. I liked his reply Richard Murphy says: September 10 2017 at 6:28 pm Thank you Appreciated It’s a good job I was born thick ̶s̶k̶i̶n̶n̶e̶d̶ Reply moqifen September 10, 2017 at 10:26 pm And this is even more delicious as he bad mouths kevin hague Richard Murphy says: September 8 2017 at 1:28 pm Life is too short to engage with Kevin He did ban me, for the record He is not committed to dialogue What a fucking hypocrit Slattibartfast September 10, 2017 at 10:39 pm You can gauge the size of his ego. Nobel Laureates know less than the man who never opened an economics text book. The reason Mr Hague blocked him ( not ban) is that Dick Head was indulging in his favourite pastime of abusing his betters. It’s why he can only afford to be part time at Islington Tech. There are just so many betters. Martin September 11, 2017 at 1:05 am Can I suggest he becomes a case study for the psychology department at some university? Fascinating what he writes. He is like no other man. Well, like no other man who is free to walk the streets. I’ve been reading his stuff for years. The insights into how he thinks (and he does think) are remarkable. All from his public persona in voice and written form. Henry Crun September 11, 2017 at 7:27 am Martin, it’s an easy diagnosis – Schizophrenic Cognitive Dissonance Disorder.
