Well, Gordon Brown said that he would end boom and bust. He failed so it must be.

Yes, recessions will almost certainly recur ad infinitum (and, definitely until shortly before ad infinitum).

Yes. To stop them you'd have to stop the boom that came before them, and no one likes to be told to quiet down when the party is in full swing.

Yes of course.
A recession is opposite to the period of growth, you can't have one without the other.

Actually he did succeed - there is no more boom.

People misunderstood Brown. When asked whether he ended boom and bust the answer was really

"No, more boom and bust!"
