Mandelbrot just goes on and on and on
He claimed yesterday that a Conservative government will "strangle the recovery at birth" - I'm not going to dwell on the insanity of describing a 0.1% improvement in finances as a "recovery" other than to point out that I have a suspicion that the New Labour machine would have reported a 0.0000001% improvement in joke shop sales as heralding the beginning of a recovery - such is their desperation to find a positive outcome after 13 years of blind incompetence.
Now given that New Labour 13 year track record of being unable to predict anything accurately how can Mandelbrot be sure of anything? Events happen, politicians are caught napping, governments are reactive not proactive - the government of Blair and Brown, Dumb and Dumber if you prefer, epitomise this axiom.
If the Dark-Lord-of-Everything believes for one second that we can trust his confident predictions of impending Tory doom and incompetence he is truly delusional - why should we, how could we? By his trademark arrogance he simply reinforces that which is obvious to all - New Labour's desperation oozes from every pore and the stench of death is overwhelming, it's pitiful.
Chaos - you just can't predict it, it's a bugger innit?
