Gordon Brown Farewell Speech at Labour Headquarters(12th May 2010)

On the back of our party cards it says: By the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more together than we do alone.

And in constituency after constituency despite all odds we proved that again on Thursday night. By the strength of our common endeavour we achieved more together than any of us ever have done on our own.

And so I am here to thank every member of Labour’s staff, every volunteer, every member, every supporter for what you have done in the past, and what I know you will do in the future.

To thank also Harriet, Douglas, Peter, Ray Collins, the Chair of our NEC Ann Black, and our candidates and campaigners.

We know – more certainly now than ever before – that there is a strong progressive majority in Britain.

I wish more than I can possibly say that I could have mobilised that majority to carry the election– but I could not.

And so now I have to accept - and indeed assert – personal responsibility. The fault is mine, and I will carry it alone.

So to give this party I love the best possible chance to prepare for its future, I have resigned the leadership of the Labour Party with immediate effect.

I wish my successor in that role well; and I will stand by Labour’s new leader, whoever that may be -- loyally and without equivocation.

Because one thing will not change: I am Labour, and Labour I will always be.

Let me a few days after our election thank those who never gave up and never gave in, who fought so hard and whose dignity in defeat makes us so proud.

In the past few weeks, our Labour Party has shown, even when up against the odds, what we are made of.

Of course we went into this election massively outspent and with, shall I call it, a difficult media environment. In the most difficult of circumstances after an economic crisis a political expenses crisis and after 13 years in government it is to your enduring credit that we denied our opposition the majority they took for granted.

And you know better than anybody how hard fought this election was, and how dependent we were on the small, well disciplined team of which you were such a crucial part. Strong policy, robust research, creative communications and inspired new media work were allied with the most targeted and the most commanding ground war I have seen in my whole time in politics. And for all that, I thank you.

And I’m proud to say that we proved last Thursday that
committed people matter more than limitless cash.

Sarah and I will never be able to thank you enough for what you have done. But I hope when you look back on these times you will tell your children, and your children’s children, about the Britain we built together and the good that we did in this campaign.

Because let me tell you what it was really all about. Last week when I was out knocking on people’s doors … and this wasn’t recorded on tape … I met a girl who was exactly the same age as the Labour government. Born on the 1st of may 1997, she had grown to know and love a Britain with Sure Start, with one to one tuition, with the expectation that every person from every background will have the chance to get on and not just get by.

She took opportunity for granted, and we fought for the chance for every child to be born in a Britain like that. We fought for the future.

And we continue to fight unceasingly because progress is not a word we just speak but a reality we have been creating where the ambit of opportunity always expands and never contracts. And we fight for progress because we know the energy and talent of the British people are boundless whenever they are released from stereotype and allowed to soar.

We know that progressive change is possible, because our very record shows it is.

  • The minimum wage.
  • Sure Start.
  • The child tax credit
  • The shortest waiting times in NHS history.
  • Record exam results in schools.
  • More police officers than ever.
  • Half a million children out of poverty.
  • And two million more jobs than in 1997.

And on top of everything we did to change Britain for the better and forever,we can be proud that there are people alive in Africa today, children in school there who have access to health care there, because of what we have done here thousands of miles away.

So when this think of these times think on the lives saved and changed, and always remember - that New Labour’s achievements do not belong to me or to Tony Blair, but to you.

We fought and will continue to fight for our public services - services that are not something that we conjure up on our own-- or that most of us can pay for by ourselves – but services that are valued because they and the realization of a
true nobility that sees beyond selfish individualism, on to what can be done through our collective endeavour.

That is why we fought – and why we together we will keep fighting for justice.

So tell your children you were a part of this – but also never to stop believing that
people of courage and conviction can lift our country and make it equal to its best ideals.

So to those who gave their hearts, their hard work and their votes to labour, i say thank you. I will never forget how we stood together – in happier days and through the hardest hours.

And so as you fight on, know that I will be with you, heart and soul.

And know that you have my undying gratitude, because you have given the best of yourselves to the greatest of causes. And because you have fought every hour of every day you will be able to say for the rest of your days;

I was there.

I was on the progressive side of history.

And you are part of a Labour Party which is and will always be the greatest fighting force for fairness our country has ever seen.

We are irrepressible: we fight for fairness, and tomorrow we fight on.

PBA asignment

okay i damn stressed up. coz i suppose to do my bpa asignment now. i got no idea wat my bpa asignment suppose to do.

my question is :

" the impact of infomation needs on the accounting profession since the article was published"

well the article is entitled " the impact of tecnology having on the accounting profession" which was written in 1990 .

okay i think i approach it this way.

1) who need the infomation? in the case is accountant and bussinessmens.

2) what do they want info about?? the company perfomance , profit..transactions ...etc

3) who is responsible for providing this info ? acccountant

the article given tells the impact of technology in 1990s . and obviosly much have changed till now...hence i think i will elaborate on tht based on the the questions above.

some info i found :

85% of companies in US are small firms who did not afford an accountant. then intuit came up with quickbooks. quickbooks appealed to this firm as it was so user friendly hence they manage to capture a market which now account 70% of its market share. I found this in a book which talk abt distruptive technologies . it is entitled "the innovator's dillema by clayton M. christeen

i found tht book rather interesthing as it talks abt distruptive tech. and the notion of keeping things simple but not simpler. shall read it when i am free.

Finally , after months of procrastinating and delays i am writing this. I nt sure why the hell i took so long to acctually write a post for my own beloved blog. 1st of all , wanna wish my blog happy buffday ( a belated one) ; my blog was born on 4th july 2006 , that means it been 3 years already.....not bad....and thankz also to my english teacher who introduced me to my blog. her name was ms fei(can nt recall real namelah , bt she malaylah) . Apart from this blog , i also got my 1st email on this date . And my 1st email was send to my cousin in Adelaide , when i was form 5. Sorrylah ,did not have computer back home then. My 1st actual encounter with computer was in mrsm for computer science subject which i did excel , not bad for someone who came from a non computer background.

soory , got carried away with my memories of the past. turning back and looking at the past gives me immense pleasure .......mind you , i have not achieved anything so far. perhaps , it is a feeling of gratitude to my parents and their prayers and also god. But yeah come to think of it , it never cross my mind that i be pursuing accountancy at all especially here( location nt reveled coz of security reasons) . I alwayz thought i do well in SPM , get into Matriculation , work my ass and get into Medicine in public University . Till now , if someone give me an option , i rather do medicine. BUT accountancy was MY CHOICE , it was i who call the shots , i am the one who made the decision . TRUE , certain circumstances lead me to that choice . BUT yeah , life is about choices and we have the power to make choice ,. The word is 'volition' if i nt wrong.

...........................................(thinking wat to write)....................................................

Well a recall to my alma mater and my facebook inbox have finally sparked a thought on wat to write. I just wanna to highlight that the govt recently reverse the decision to teach mathematics and science in english to malay. Tht means , in 2012 onwards , maths and science would be thought in malay. Hence , I WELCOMED THIS DECISION !!! i never really agreed to change the teaching to english in the 1st place. IT simply was the wrong solution for the lack of profiency in english among Malaysian . If u wanna increase english profiency , u should increase english contact hours and maybe introduce litereature in primary level( mind u , it not need be shakespear , u can make the kidz read harry potter instead). The point is science and maths are technical subjects , it is best to teach in language where students and teachers most comfortable of. It is vital to remember most kids especially the malay and chinese kids do nt speak english at home. English therefore is strictly a 2nd language for them. A lot of people are very suprised regarding my view about this. People think i will object government decision to revert.

Regarding this , i also like to point out something. A lot of urbanites especially the chinese and Indian have expressed dissatisfaction of this. Well , i got something to say , you push for abolishment of vernacular schools in Malaysia . Then maybe it is fair for you to express dissatisfaction. I always seen vernacular schools as the biggest barrier in promoting unity in Malaysia. Hence , abolish it. Wat about mother tongue ??? well , i believe the government should and must make it compulsory for all primary Chinese and Indian kids to take Chinese and Tamil as their subject. Hence , there is no need to have good for nothing moral studies in primary level.

This particular issue of vernacular schools have always been in my mind. I get extremely annoyed when certain group decide to have conversation in their mother tongue when there is someone whom does not understand it is in that group . PEOPLE , THT IS UTTER RUDENESS AND where is YOUR MENACE ???? why did this occur , because of existence of vernacular schools. IN vernacular schools , u very likely to mix with your own race . Hence u become ignorant on this petty issue of what is regarded as rude. I not targeting any particular race , but yeah , i just wanna say that in a position of power , i will definitely do away with vernacular schools but insist on mother tougue subject be made compulsory in primary level.

Lastly , i would like to add that i do hope my views on this be taken account especially to my friends who will end up in position of power someday. I am not targeting any particular group of people , but yeah , i think greatest barrier of unity in MALAYSIA is the very existence of vernacular school. I proposed for a ONE SCHOOL SYSTEM . Whereby all MALAYSIANS , go to one school from standard one till form five. ONE SCHOOL !!!

Read this article that again for so obvious but remain subtle among Malaysians especially the so called people that champion of Malaysia's New Working Underclass that only can claim the leftovers of a ever shrinking (economic) pie.

No words can better describe the current condition the Malaysia's New Working Underclass then a quote by John Buckhardt whom authored "The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy"

In the Middle Ages both sides of human consciousness – that which was turned within as that which was turned without – lay dreaming or half awake beneath a common veil. The veil was woven of faith, illusion, and childish prepossession, through which the world and history were seen clad in strange hues.[53]

Here is the link that enlightining piece that made me write cum copy& paste this posting:


For the god's sake , every passer by with some amount of curiosity should open it.

Snippets from the article (with me giving my two cents worth) :

He should exercise some degree of statesmanship by stepping aside and letting the party and its delegates decide on the next rung of leadership without any influence by him. That would open up the avenue for new talent ( he is talking about me..gajan amazingly...hahahaha)to come up within the party.

..............this considerably reduces its chances of winning back the Indian votes they lost in the general election in a dramatic turn when an estimated 85% support from the community in previous elections turned to 85%(whooaa..the Malaysia's New Working Underclass as Malaysia's New King Maker)disapproval instead.

(silent majority speaking up)

The _-_-_ (Please fill in the blanks) was powerless to prevent an influx of cheap foreign labour into estates, which directly impacted the hundreds of thousands of Indian plantation workers who were pushed out of their green ghettoes to become squatters in towns
( "The New Working Underclass of Malaysia"....comimg slumps nationwide)

'- A true Machievillian - '
He that 'shall not be named', to concentrate power on himself, traded the two Cabinet positions the --- traditionally held for one full minister and two deputies, making him the only representative of of The New Working Underclass of Malaysia in the Cabinet
(Spoilers of "The New Working Underclass of Malaysia" courtesymalaysianindiancinemaspoiler.xom)

On some counts at least, there are serious doubts. That would mean 'he that shall not be named' could win the election even if he did not enjoy support from the majority of party members, simply because delegates could vote differently from the wishes of members(Democracy In Action???).

On another account , We all know the main reason(guess ur selflah) why Europe manage to get out of its ' Dark Age' and be the world's greatest collonial power( now....history lessons).Here is quote by Randolph Starn that maybe could spark some amount of inteligence in our brain especially that part that control our logic and rational thinking.

Rather than a period with definitive beginnings and endings and consistent content in between, the Renaissance can be (and occasionally has been) seen as a movement of practices and ideas to which specific groups and identifiable persons variously responded in different times and places. It would be in this sense a network of diverse, sometimes converging, sometimes conflicting cultures, not a single, time-bound culture.[11]
—Randolph Starn

If that did not spark any neurons : maybe this will:

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it

Commonsense is the realised sense of proportion

For me every ruler is alien that defies public opinion

-Quotation from Mahatma Gandhi-

However all effort will be futile to eblighten the New Working Underclass of Malaysia if certain parties try to manipulate it by blowing it out of proportion for malicious reason. It is important to maintain our composure and not to be too emotionall.

Food(yum-yum) for thought: More Ghandinian's quotes

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.

And lastly :
Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts

I know, to banish anger altogether from one's breast is a difficult task. It cannot be achieved through pure personal effort. It can be done only by God's grace.

Check this Out :
We do not need a racial crisis


Read this in STAR NEWSPAPER READER's VIEW section. Applause to the STAR publications for publishing it!!
This piece of article was sent one Star Newspaper readers ...which I believe a true MALAYSIAN , whom belong to the Bangsa MAlaYsia!! I believe it truly speaks for the slient majority.....a Lat's version of Malaysia.

Everybody can easily play a part to form a LAT's version of Malaysia by juz being one. Again , Mahatma Gandhi's quote apply here as well. Together we shall strive for this ......and LAT's Malaysia. We as individual have the power to change. All this might sound rather cliche not cool but we have to continue to harp on this LAt's Malaysia. Then only this idea will at least continue to exist.As mention ealier , everybody have to play a part.

We have to address this issue now. Ignorance is not a bliss and procratination is definately not solution. It will definately get worst before it get better , but that is the law of nature.

This another chapter that MAlaysia will need to go through , but at the end of the day , Malaysia shall shine with glory and pride. Shining Shimering untill the whole world will stand and salute us.

Therefore , no point we try suppress this .....suppresion will cause things to blow out of proportion sume day. Wanna end this my quoting Marina Mahathir ;

Wise leaders should know that when people are united by a common cause in their heads, it is very hard to dislodge this idea. Banning something or an organisation will not change their minds.

In the 50s, once the idea of independence had lodged in the heads of the people of Malaya, it was very hard to get rid of it.
The road to independence became inevitable and whatever was in people’s heads soon translated into legal papers.
