Recommended Posts

Haven't they done a volte face on the sewage thing today. It's difficult to know what to pack for trip to the beach these days. Speedos or full hazmat is such a dilemma.

Will Ed be partaking in National Cheese Toastie Day? Considering his track record with sandwiches.

 

 

To be fair to Ed he drew the line when it came to the shit sandwich that was austerity

Apart from being Secretary of State for Energy in the government that started austerity, you mean.

What you missed was that the first austerity measures were introduced in late 2008, and you apparently also missed Alistair Darling's March 2010 budget, when he promised the Labour government would "cut deeper and tougher" than Margaret Thatcher, with the IFS pointing out that there was only a "modest difference" between the spending plans of Labour and the Tories.

I've no doubt Labour did plan to cut further in 2010 but the fact remains the Lib Dems were the party in coalition and even when seeing the damage polices like the bedroom tax were inflicting on people they ploughed on regardless.

Polices that shrunk the economy by £100b  and were linked to over 120,000 preventable deaths

The Lib Dems voluntarily chose the partnership and as such were a reason that every Tory cut was passed. 

 

But at least we now pay 5p for a plastic bag so every silver lining

Didn’t that budget basically nail the coffin for Labour at that years GE? I think I remember Darling getting loads of shit at the time. 

Ultimately Labour's downfall was to apparently leave the coffers dry....Even though it was a global financial crash

Good. So we can stop pretending that Ed Miliband, or any other Labour politician, wouldn't have been on board with the huge spending cuts we made in this country if it was them who happened to be sitting in the chair when the music stopped.

Oh look. The Tory Cabinet thread has changed into a discussion about Labour. What a completely unexpected surprise... 

 

Not really a surprise since you started talking about Starmer

No Starmer for PMQs or the budget response as he's tested positive for Covid.

It's inevitable that discussion centred on one of the establishment parties will occasionally veer onto the other establishment party. Quite different from, for instance, people trying to constantly drive multiple topics onto their pet causes.

How come we don't see opposition or the media point out the bullshit succinctly.

Well the media's pretty obvious, it's largely Tory-supporting and there's no way they'd expose the myth of Tory economic competency. And at the moment, the opposition are a bunch of supine wankers more interested in internal party power struggles than opposing the government.

In one.

The way starmer has let that fucking clown blunder from 1 disaster to another whilst people suffer is,quite frankly,unforgivable.

    • Really hate Monday night football. I can’t laugh completely at the Mancs until we (hopefully) get the win tomorrow.
    • Neville Neville  He's a sex pest Neville Neville  He's under arrest
    • It's like no-one is allowed an opinion on 'his' club.
    • Thing is, were G&H in any way compatible to the Glazers? The glazers have spent a fucking fortune.   They also repeatedly do what the fans want, which has been the problem all along.    They wanted Solksjaer to get the gig full time even though it was obvious to everyone else he had no pedigree.    They wanted big name signings like Pogba just to be Billy big bollocks, they wanted Ronaldo back.    The fans ARE the problem, as you're finding out again. There's no way any manager will ever be given time there for a five year project, none. They're the source of the club's ultimate demise, and it's poetry.
    • This is what Ferguson said 10 years ago whilst Neville was sucking his cock under the table. Not to mention the subsequent purchase of Van Persie and a title win that followed.   The Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has defended his club's owners, the Glazer family, as well as his transfer policy and made a jibe at rivals Manchester City The Glazer family assumed control at Old Trafford in 2005 but have rarely encountered a trouble-free period in charge. Factions of support have persistently protested against their ownership owing to concerns over debt levels, with others believing United can no longer match their Premier League rivals in the transfer market as a result. But speaking during his side's pre-season tour of South Africa, Ferguson has defended the American family. "I am comfortable with the Glazer situation. They have been great," he said. "They have always backed me whenever I have asked them. I have never faced any opposition. "They have always been as sensible as they can be in terms of financing the club. They have to invest in the team to maintain the value of their asset. "I think there are a whole lot of factions at United that think they own the club. They will always be contentious about whoever owns the club, and that's the way it's always been. "When the Glazers took over here there was dissatisfaction, so there have always been pockets of supporters who have their views. But I think the majority of real fans will look at it realistically and say it's not affecting the team. We've won four championships since they've been there, one European Cup."
