  Just the other day, the Governor of the Bank of England made a serious error, and actually spoke about "recession"....He told us all what yours truly has been saying for years, using that famous thing again - common sense!
(not ahead-right here, right now!)
He said - " Britain (the English always use that expression when it's bad news) is in the worst recession since the 30's if not the worst recession EVER".......Since then......SILENCE!
Actually, there wasn't even the slightest comment from any Politician, British or English - wonder why.Probably because they've known for years that the above headline is exact!
Although why the very person who is supposed to be "sorting it out" should tell us this and then disappear from the scene remains a mystery. Maybe he just wanted to build the basis for a bonus for giving excellent results - later he can say - "Told ya so - can I have my bonus now please....?"
Why the politicians - of all parties - should hold such a silence when they are normally so volumous in protests, is something else....After all, traditionally there is enough place for comments....
Let's be kind to them - they have been busy trying to persuade their own followers, after all, at Party Conferences and the like.....although why you should have to try to persuade your own people is a mystery ..particularly with silence......!
