  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. In his latest gers nonsense he believes that he has “won” the debate. I liked his reply

    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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
