Quote of the Day

David Davis was overheard explaining…

“The corollary of the Big Society is the smaller state. If you talk about the small state, people think you’re Attila the Hun. If you talk about the Big Society, people think you’re Mother Teresa.”

    In the language of duplicity, the truth of poilitical words and policies lies in the very opposite . . . . . so whats the fuss ? Bring on political reform what what

    Is the Big Society going to be run by Catholics? Davis is out of touch with ordinary people. When you talk about Big Society no one knows wtf it is. Some people are catching on to the idea that it means doing something for nothing or funding from dead people’s bank accounts. Big Society is not exactly an easy concept to sell to the people. The Big Experiment is what it actually is.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
