And the winner of today’s Political Fool award goes to …..

GORDON BROWN the UK Prime Minister

And why has he won this prestigious award you may ask?

In response to the rising food prices, gas prices, energy costs, and estimated crippling winter heating costs, his answer is….

Buy less food and don’t throw away the leftovers! Yes ladies and gentlemen, you have heard correctly. The cure for all your wallet woes is to just buy less food. I sure wish I could have thought of that! And this from a man who is supposed to be one of the highest educated PM’s in England. Wow, really says something about the British education system eh?

The PM said “unnecessary” purchases were contributing to price rises, and urged people to plan meals in advance and store food properly”

It just gives one a warm fuzzy to know we have such brilliant people in charge of the economy. 🙂

I’m waiting for this winter when it’s cold, rainy, and miserable for him to tell everyone “Turn down your thermostats and save money!” “Do you really need it above 50 degrees at night?” “If you can’t afford a doubling in your heating costs, then turn down the thermostat!”
