    There are two reasons for this story: Guido is homophobic so he and his homophobic readers salivate at any opportunity to bash gays and he is also using this post to skate over the real story of the day: George Osborne broke the law by failing to carry out a mandatory assessment of his budget.

    George Osborne will have to apologise to the Commons and admit that his budget is regressive not progressive.

    He will have to adjust his budget to charge the rich more in taxation and the poor less.

    Only by doing this will he be able to belatedly complete and submit the assessment that he is legally required and only then will he be able to claim the budget is progressive.

    You morons just don’t get it, do you? The very existence of the Coalition depends upon it being progressive. This is not just a fiscal issue, it is also a deeply political one.

    Even if Osborne doesn’t get hauled up before the beak, at the very least I have got the imbeciles at the Treasury very worried indeed and running around like headless chickens this morning desperately trying to repair the illegal omission they are guilty of.

    The law says he had to assessment.
    He didn’t do the assessment.
    End of story.

    The Chancellor of the Exchequer has broken the law.

    Lawmakers cannot be lawbreakers.

    I doubt Osborne will be forced to resign as he is David Cameron’s friend and David Cameron is more loyal to his friends than to the country but I expect a few heads will have to roll at the Treasury.

    All in all it has been a very constructive morning’s work.

    Boohoo – simply employing the word ‘progressive’ in a way that does not meet your approval now counts as lying does it?

    I’d argue that anything that takes us away from Labour welfarism is progress, and thus counts as progressive – so Osbourne was in fact telling the truth, and defecit deniers like you are shown up for the parochial Fabian vanguard of the revolution that you want to be.

    Please wake me up when this becomes more than a spat over words fomented by a political campaigning group that hides behind ‘child poverty’ to promote the welfarist agenda.

    Like I said, though – this is just a semantic spat for purely political ends and will die a natural death because nobody but you cares whether Osbourne used the word ‘progressive’ in your approved sense.

    Ah – reading Theresa May’s letter I realise that the ‘law’ that is supposedly being broken is the restrictive and illiberal ‘equality’ legislation that the communist fifth columnists managed to pollute our system with in the last parliament.

    There’s a simple answer to this – repeal the bloody law, remove the requirement to waste time and effort on ‘impact analysis’ or whatever bullshit name is given to the process, and sack all equality/diversity/whatever staff on the grounds that their presence is inimical to freedom and common sense.

    I’m much more relaxed about poor Ossie falling foul of the law now that I know it’s not a real law…

    Would someone be kind enough to define what “progressive politics” is?

    My suspicion is that it’s a useful catch-all phrase meaning anything the user would like it to mean, changing with changing circumstances.

    I have heard politicians of all three main parties describe various of their policies as “progressive”, and dismiss the policies of other parties as “not progressive” or “regressive”.

    One man’s progress can be another man’s regression – the phrase used in current political context is far too vague to mean anything to me.

    ‘Progressive’ can be used of taxation as a technical term. meaning ‘falling more on better-off people’. It’s imprecise in that it’s unclear whether it means that the well-off pay tax at a higher percentage rate (income tax, stamp duty) or just pay more tax (council tax, VAT).

    Interestingly, our most regressive tax is Tax Credits, a weird negative tax that sits alongside two positive taxes, income tax and national insurance. Tax Credit clawbacks produce marginal overall tax rates of over 60% for people on low incomes who start to earn more.

    Or James could take his tablet earlier, or fuck off to McDs for an egg mufin and some superheated coffee substitute.

    Why should the law determine whether we bend over backwards to accommodate others? Isn’t common sense and normal polite behaviour enough?

    All this law did was to promote another legion of boxtickers and parasites to positions of power over the individual or business, all with gold plated salaries and pensions of course.

    Apparently George Osborne has broken some law or other that noone sentient gives a toss about, and has used the word ‘progressive’ in a non-approved context.

    Oh, and Lindsay Lohan is out of rehab, so LA off licences are stocking up.

    Engineer asks “Would someone be kind enough to define what “progressive politics” is?”
    It is a means by which politicians can say things in a form which can be interpreted to mean whatever you want it to mean & they can claim you have misunderstood what it means in the event of your interpretation not supporting them.
    e.g. “that bigoted woman”

    Go to the BBC and see how they reported it…

    ‘The IFS analysis suggests that cuts to areas such as housing benefit and disability allowance would hit the poorest families to the tune of £422 between the Budget and April 2014.

    This means that only the richest 10% of households lost more in cash terms from the Budget, than those in the bottom 60%.’

    Ie the IFS agree with Osborne. The richest are hardest hit.

    Or they did until somebody rewrote the BBC article and, guess what, missed out that second sentence.

    Funny that.

    And there are still some who reckon the BBC is ‘unbiased’.

    The BBC news just lead with this item, contrast with G*r*don’s (have to do that to try and avoid modding AGAIN, secret control order in place or something?) anyway his 10p fiasco clobbered the poorest working section of the population, old aged pensioners and people on small fixed incomes, nothing much ever said about this apart from Frank Field, they still never got this unfair budget tax completely restored, then we have to put up with mad eyes Blinky wittering on about fairness on said BEEboid leader, an exercise in semantics about the word “progressive” based on assumptions about a specious projection to the year 2014. Whatever happened to the great Park*is tan flood disaster?, they really have lost the plot, what it is really all about is that the government of all the Quangos (IFS, BBC, etc) are clubbing together desperately trying to avoid a little judicious trimming.

    WTF does ‘progressive’ mean, anyway? All these idiots are using the word without any clarity as to its meaning or its particular application. It’s just another piece of jargon which can mean anything you want it to mean. Total bollocks.

    Sir Arthur Jethro Doyle says:

    ‘Tell me, Watson: have you ever known an Englishman use the word ‘summation’?’
    ‘Good God, Holmes – there isn’t such a word is there, surely?’
    ‘I dare say, Holmes, that if I were to ask my mad friend in Crowthorne, he would send me pages and pages purporting to show that, not only did Shakespeare use this term, but Chaucer!’
    ‘Crowthorne, Holmes? Not that poor deluded man in prison, the one who almost daily writes to John Murray?’
    ‘That’s the man, Holmes. I fancy that when, eventually, the full history of the ‘New English Dictionary on Historical Principles’ comes to be written’, it might very well reveal a supremely cunning and malign influence. But, ‘summation’, Holmes…?’
    ‘Oh, no Englishman would ever say – still less write! – ‘summation’. What’s wrong with ‘summary’ – ‘summing-up’, even? No, Holmes, only a foreigner – I nearly said a blackguardly foreigner! – would use such a recherche word.’
    Suppose, Watson, I said this man calls himself ‘Streamfisher’?
    ‘Streamfisher? Streamfisher? Why, the man’s a complete idiot, or at least, a stranger to our noble language: a fisherman’s a fisherman! Now, that some fishermen fish in the Sea, and that some fish in Rivers, and streams is self-evident – I can accept that in this wide field there may be those with specialisms. So a man might be a Salmon-fisher – another might fish for Eels, another for Cod… but ‘Streamfisher’? He might as well call himself ‘Kingfisher’!
    ‘Oh, I doubt he’d ever do that, Watson, this Foreigner.’
    ‘Holmes, you’re not telling me the man’s a German, are you? No: I see by your look… Norwegian? Italian?… ‘
    ‘Just ask yourself, Watson, which foreigners are, in many ways so close to us as to be like neighbours, yet in so many other ways as unlike as the proverbial ‘chalk and cheese’?’
    ‘Cheese, Holmes! The dastardly French again!’
    ‘No, Watson: not the French, although as Republican, as nepotistic as any Roman Cardinal, as family-favouring as any Sicilian,and at least as dastardly as any Frenchman, as devoted to overthrowing The Empire as any Fenian, as convinced that ‘might is right’ as any anarchist…’
    ‘Holmes! You don’t think this man is a Russian, do you?’
    ‘No, Watson. I was going to say ‘nearer to home than that’. No, Holmes, it’s obvious really: the man’s an American!’

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
