It is with a mounting sense of horror that the Maturin Towers collective has watched many of its more outrageous predictions begin to come true, as this 'correction' has bitten deep into the socialist waste of western government.
Most of our predictions take a few years, a few months, or even a few weeks, to start coming true.
However, this morning we made the speculative comment that Gordon Brown had used the G20 meeting to get the rest of the world to give the IMF a trillion dollars, so that he could then later take that money to prop up his own rotten empire.
You may have read this prediction. You may have thought it was outlandish and hopelessly naive, particularly given Gordon Brown's denial that he would ever ask the IMF for this money.
And yet, this evening, we have one of his useful idiot senior cabinet ministers saying Britain should not be afraid or ashamed of taking some of this money from the International Monetary Fund, thus flying a kite and preparing the ground should the measure prove necessary.
It would thus appear that Peter Schiff is once again bang on the money. It may prove that because of Gordon Brown's appalling stewardship of the Treasury, for 11 years, and his one year as Prime Minister, Britain really will be coming off worst in this correction, out of all the world's (once) major economies.
I think I better have that third Bombay Sapphire, after all, before all of the drinks run out.
Events are beginning to gather an accelerated pace which even we at Maturin Towers are surprised by.
And all we have to go on is what is in the papers and what we can guess. Senior cabinet ministers have access to all sorts of private and secret government information, including tax receipts, unemployment trends, and other flows and figures which never make the light of day.
If they are panicking, then what should we be doing?
