Prize Competition: Explain Labour’s Record in a Tweet

Deborah Mattinson, formerly the Brown bunker’s favourite pollster*, was wailing last night to a Mirror hack and the evil Fabian’s Sunda Katawala that “I’m still worried ‘Labour wrecked economy’ is now accepted wisdom… Labour cannot afford to wait until new leader is in place to get strong economic defence up. It must start now… Labour lacks a simple message to defend its record. Without it Labour takes the blame and loses the argument… Labour is losing the argument on the economy”. Deborah, there is a simple reason that this is the accepted wisdom. It is the truth.

All Labour governments end in economic disaster, with higher unemployment at the end than the beginning, as Margaret Thatcher pointed out,“The problem with socialism is that, sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”

The competition is to win a copy of  The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze for the most amusing 140 character Tweetable account of Labour’s economic record. Post your entries in the comments section. Guido’s decision, as always, is final.

*How is her firm doing winning government contracts nowadays? She claims in her new book Talking To A Brick Wall they were won on merit. She was incredibly successful in winning millions of pounds of government business when Gordon was in power. Completely unrelated her firm did personal polling for Gordon for free. Fancy that. Wonder how much business she is winning “on merit” from the government now?

    Good, the UK totally screwed Iceland. The Swedish central bank have done an independent report on the whole thing and concluded (in their own words) that the UK Government ‘acted incompetently’. We took down Kaupthing which would have almost certainly otherwise survived. We used anti terror laws to class Iceland as a country as a terrorist organisation immediately meaning that no one was legally allowed to deal with them as a terrorist organisation and put their whole economy into the shredder.

        Sorry to keep going on about it but if we all wrote to our MPs and demanded an English Parliament, then hopefully the English would never have to suffer a Labour Government again. England is predominately Tory but thanks to the Scottish vote we’ve had to suffer a Labour Government even though they have their own parliament and are immune from most of the decisions made at Westminster. Brown shamefully was ready to form a coalition with the Nats to hang onto power and if he had suceeded, once more England would have been denied the party she voted for. Basically, England has been under foreign rule under Brown and Darling. The Scots still hate Maggie but imagine if the English vote had sent her to govern Scotland but then we voted in a different Government for ourselves. I think there would have be rioting in the
        street of Scotland, so why are we English allowing ourselves to be treated like this? Blair and Brown treated England with contempt and we just allowed them to get away with it.

    In the eyes of some of the labour marxists they did not destroy the economy at all. They improved it. They hate capitalism (yet love the benefits it brings them) they hate the electorate being independent (so get as many of them reliant on the state as possible) they hate free enterprise (so over-regulate businesses with red tape) they hate bankers (so give them enough rope and they will hang themselves, thus turning public opinion against them…and opening the way for mass nationalisation) These people are the scum of the earth, they played silly student politics with our economy, and we’ll be paying for generations.

    Can’t enter the competition, I’m afraid. There’s just too much to say!

    New Labour’s economic policy can be summed up straightforwardly in four points.

    1) Give minimum wage and benefits to the lower classes. Tax these and keep them down through absurd marginal tax rates.

    2) Inflate house prices for the middle classes. Tax the inflation.

    3) Lax regulation for the plutocrats. Take donations and political praise in exchange.

    4) Let any foreign corporation buy any British industry. This will look like a responsible “let business get on with it attitude”.

    Labour’s record is a generation of failure. Sadly, this is of course entirely predictable. The UK has aggregately invested in inflation and mediocrity instead of productive engineering and education. Now, the skills for recovery are simply not there and the brain drain will definitely not help.

    I think that Guido is right here: as long as we have a Socialist natural party of opposition we have a major structural problem in the UK. How can anyone invest in the UK over the long term if they know that this recurring nightmare is on the horizon in 5 or 10 years? One in which non-assimilated immigrants and the most ignorant and idle of our population hand over power to a party with a record of near total failure every time it has been given a go. We need to go Canadian and return to Liberal/Conservative swap overs and leave Labour in the margins of politics where its uselessness can’t keep on destroying the country.

    I’m a Labour man.
    I haven’t got a brain.
    Me fatha voted Labour.
    I’ll always do the same.
    I used to word down t’pit.
    I used to dig up coal.
    But f’t past 30 years.
    I’ve been on the dole.

    Me daughters got 4 kids.
    All from different men.
    She gets more on benefits.
    Than she’d get workin 2 til 10.
    A free house and a holiday.
    More booze than Ollie Reed.
    She smokes her fags and smacks hers kids.
    And then goes smokin’ weed.

    I’m a Labour man.
    They call me workin class.
    But that’s a load of bollocks.
    I spend my time on my ass.
    Workin is for dickeads.
    I get my cash for free.
    Enough to see me down t’pub.
    Every day til 3.

    I’m on benefits, you see.
    I’m claiming for me back.
    It’s easier than working.
    I’ll never get the sack.
    I laugh at all those workers.
    Who scrimp and try and save.
    They work all day for fuck all pay.
    Then end up in the grave.

    Labour have been good to us.
    They gave me things for free.
    A house, a car, free meals and cash.
    I’ve paid for nothing, me.
    I’ve scrounged and lied and scrounged some more.
    I drink lager from a can.
    I’m a grasping fat arse shithouse.
    I am a Labour man.

    Apologists for the past Labour government are still trying to put the blame on “the banks” for ruining the economy.

    In reality, two banks in Scotland and two ex-building societies in the North-East of England went bankrupt. Each of them was located in Labour-voting areas, and each of them was run by New Labour types. Huge sums of tax-payers’ money were used by the Labour government to prop them up, and a solvent London-based bank (Lloyds TSB) was dragged by its New Labour-supporting chairman into merging with one of the failed Scottish banks, with disastrous results for its own balance sheet.

    Remember that, next time you hear the Labour apologists trying to “blame the banks.”
