It turns my stomach to think of Goodwin raking it in, but a contract is a contract. Gordon Brown, who many consider to be the most ruinous Prime Minister this country has ever seen - the destroyer of the economy - will not be giving up his pension. Gordon the destroyer said:
"When banks fail... the people who make the mistakes cannot and should not run off with entitlements and with additional discretionary payments... this is unjustifiable, unacceptable....."
What a bloody cheek - can he not see the irony in his words? - he could have easily exchanged to word bank for government. Brown will leave office with this country in ruins. He will be paid massive appearance fees and he will receive very lucrative book deals. He will become rich from being Prime Minister, and we will be poorer for the privilege of his leadership. So I say to Sir Fred: Tell Gordon Brown to shove his legal action where the sun don't shine.
