Tessa Jowell - Should have jumped under that bus for Blair.

Comrade Tessa breaks ranks on the glorious leaders 5 year plans on tractor production targets.

Tessa Jowell, the Olympics Minister, said the forthcoming downturn was expected to be "deeper than any that we have known".

"Forthcoming downturn" - Can these people not use plain English? How about recession, a nice simple word and bloody accurate as well.

The admission is the most pessimistic forecast so far issued by a Government minister. It raises the spectre of a recession lasting throughout 2009 and part of 2010 - worse than the recessions of the early 1990s and 1980s.

Alistair Darling, the Chancellor, has insisted that the British economy will begin recovering next summer. However, his prediction is now regarded as over-optimistic by many independent experts.

The Conservatives described Miss Jowell's comments as a "stunning admission" of the Government's true position on the scale of the economic downturn. The remarks suggest that the Government are considering the prospect of Britain facing a 1930s-style depression rather than a traditional recession.

She has I believe already shown her concern for working class families by travelling to see F1 racing in Brazil first class.

Comrade Tessa has shown herself a typical champagne socialist with her the so called Jowellgate sleaze story.

Tessa is known for her decisive decision making support local post offices and also voting to close them.

Sadly Tessa has not followed through on her pledge to former PM Tony Blair that she would "Jump under a bus for him.". 

Mind as now former apsotate Tony who's government famously said that "It did not do God", Comrade Tessa followed the party line when her departmental "Christmas" cards avoided any references to the Christmas story.

The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. - Cicero - 55 BC
