Continuity TaliBrown Not Happy

Kevin Maguire and Charlie Whelan are two of the most high profile former members of the inner-circle of the TaliBrown, now they are at the core of the continuity-TaliBrownies. Both are allies of, and boosters for Brown’s heir, Ed Balls. Both of them today are not happy…

Our Kevin says Not-So-Red-Ed was “scared of his shadow – or at least the notion of making either Ed Balls or Yvette Cooper his Shadow Chancellor. So the timid new Labour leader fluffed his first big call and played safe with Alan Johnson. As a result he missed a glorious opportunity to recast his party’s economic policy and to turn the tables on the Tories.” Maguire, in his role as TaliBrown propaganda chief, makes no secret of his preference for deficit denial.

Despite swinging the unions behind Red Ed to win control of the Labour Party, the TaliBrown bully and union-fixer Charlie Whelan is still unhappy; mainly with Peter Mandelson and David Miliband. Telling The Times that David Miliband was annoying and should “get a life” after his failed leadership battle, adding for good measure that his exit from the Shadow Cabinet was ungracious.

“It was slightly self-indulgent to just go off. It didn’t look good. It would have been best for him to say straight away what he was going to do. It’s a tragedy when you lose your job, you are on the dole and you have no money for your family. Politician losing top job is not a tragedy. It’s personally uncomfortable but that’s all. This is why David’s attitude annoys me. He didn’t get the job but it’s not a disaster. Get a life.”

Whelan also backs Ed Balls to be Chancellor in the Shadow Cabinet claiming “He’s got a grasp of the economy and his position on the economy is the right one”. Charlie adamantly rejects the accepted wisdom that Labour’s defeat in the last election was in any part down to Gordon Brown’s deficit denial, claiming

“We could have won that election. Peter Mandelson went round at Christmas saying it’s going to be a catastrophic defeat. Well, if you’re going into the election with your main man telling you you’re going to be defeated then you might as well pack up and go home. Obviously the campaign was an unmitigated disaster.”

Guido can see Balls and his boosters waging low intensity political warfare on Red Ed for as long as he seeks to get on the reality-based side of the deficit denying dividing line. That is something Balls and the rest of the continuity-TaliBrown will be determined to block…

        Its the Versailles Treaty mentality. 1930’s all over again.

        “Our people were never defeated. We could have won. Blairite politicians got scared and caved in to false media reports of defeats. We would have won a great victory but for the Americans doing Iraq and destroying the global financial economy. We would be in power today if the Lib Dems hadn’t stabbed us in the back..”

        Then the cuts come and the Comrades can say “look at what defeat has brought us too! We need to ignore the debts of Capitalist Imperialist Bankers and form an army of ordinary public sector employees. They can join trade unions and march to victory. ”

        And soon a million hi visibility vest wearing workers march in torchlight parades around the Olympic stadium. Near hysterical council female office clerks and teaching assistants chant the new leaders name.. Ed -Ed -Ed -Ed -ED- ED! {not Miliband – the other one}- Ed- Ed -Ed- Ed an’ elf- Ed an’ elf -Ed – Ed!

        And the leader does not disappoint..To the back drop of the 500m red flags of the “New Socialists & Democrats Alliance Party – NSDAP –

        “Comrades, I shall build a Labour party that will last a thousand years. I’ve still got the uniform from my university days! ”

        “I promise a return to spend and spend!
        I promise only new energy. Windfarms for everyone. Schools for everyone. Individual hospitals for every sick party member. We march on Parliament. Who’s with me, and what do you think of my new little moustache? ”

        Viktory..Viktory! Viktory!”

        The lights are going out all over Europe. We shan’t be able to power them again in our lifetime.”

      Sam, Gordon, Blinky, Whelan = Deficit Deniers

      Brown and Balls both still refuse to accept the need for cuts at all.

      Brown tried to suggest (all lies) in the HoC that he was planning to INCREASE spending despite having run up the biggest debt in history with a huge ongoing deficit.

      Balls continues to suggest that Darling’s plan to reduce the deficit by half over four years (i.e. still have a huge fucking deficit and an even bigger debt) was too daring.

      A whole five months after being kicked out, Labour has failed signally to offer any solution to the catastrophic legacy it has left us with.

      They lie and deny, while offering no alternative of their own.

      Why? Because the PLP has voted the same twats back onto the front bench who caused the problem.

    Middle-class students face bills of £80,000 to go to university in the biggest shake-up of higher education funding for half a century.

    A thought about the Ed Balls approach to the current economic woes of the country.

    We are currently just about scrambling out of the worst recession since WW2, if not longer. We all know that growth will follow, though it may not be soon or spectacular. Equally certain is that at some point, maybe five years, maybe ten or fifteen, there will be another recession.

    If we delay deficit reduction now, as Ed Balls espouses, and wait until the economy is growing before we tackle excess public spending, we will accrue greater debts. Total government spend will also remain high. So when the next recession hits (which, at some point, it surely will), we will have high debts, high interest charges, little scope to cut costs gently and very little room to manouvre economically.

    If we tackle public spending now, we will reduce government spending sooner, control debt better, have scope to slow the cuts if a double-dip seems likely, and be in a better position to enjoy the boom when it finally comes. We will also be in much better economic shape when (not if) the next recession hits.

    Balls and the Talibrowns are economic imbeciles. RedEd is wise to sideline them, but won’t shut them up completely. They’ll be boring away below his waterline for as long as most of this parliament, and whilst they probably won’t sink him, they’ll give him a lot of work continuously pumping his bilges. There’s nothing RedEd can do to avoid this, because he can’t send Balls to the back benches. Balls could be RedEd’s enemy within.

        From my admittedly safe distance that I have chosen, I simply cannot see how the UK can get out of its borrowing predicament. Hell, government expenditure is not even being reduced overall. Given that the true government debt, once all unfunded commitments are factored in, is in the order of £85,000 for every man, woman and child, before taking the enormous personal debt (not even counting in mortgage debt against a very shaky property market), there is a working lifetime of debt repayment for everyone. If that sounds bad, think of what will happen to this debt if rates begin to rise. The repayments will not equal the interest.

        Fair comment – however, we know from bitter experience in the ’70s and early ’80s that a high-inflation, high-interest rate economic environment stifles private sector growth, and thus potential for tax revenues. (As you rightly point out, it also seriously hurts those on fixed incomes and savers, too.)

        The priorities for addressing the problem have to be to firstly, eliminate the deficit by cutting public spending and simultaneously encouraging growth of the private sector, then secondly to reduce debt.

        We’ll have to wait and see how fast public spending is brought under control – sooner rather than later would seem the wisest course, so as to have the public books balanced or in surplus when the next recession hits. So far, however, nobody has suggested how we might reduce the burden of debt. Sure, it will reduce over several decades as inflation erodes it, provided we do not run another deficit or go deflationary, but should we not be taking active steps to pay back debt once we have eliminated the deficit? Painful in the short term, but rather like paying a mortgage, easier as time passes, and a significant reduction in the burden for the next generation.

        Not a Ballsian approach, but surely a responsible one?

          Yes, that is exactly what we should be doing.

          But Balls and Co. perversely see the private sector as parasitic and exploitative, good only for punitive taxation. They have recklessly ignored its massive contribution the pensions. They see growth only as an enabler for tax revenues. They see standards of living as dependent only on government spending.

          As even Blair remarked, “Ed Balls…does not get aspiration”.

          Labour’s constituency can only be diminished by the migration of “workers” from the state (and welfare state) “payroll”. This has been Labour’s principal concern since time immemorial.

          Keeping people poor and dependent keeps Labour in (with a shout of) power.

          The simple, brutal, fact is that paying benefits is cheaper than paying salaries to inefficient and unproductive sections of the public sector workforce. Private sector jobs create wealth, pay more tax, cost the Treasury nothing, have no public pension liability. The public sector (while a necessary evil in many cases) has the opposite effect in every regard.

          I have nothing against the people who provide, often essential, public services. But I don’t see why they should be exempted from making the sacrifices that those in the private sector have been making for years: pensions arbitrarily destroyed; job losses; pay freezes; tax increases; irrational foreclosures.

          If Brown had stuck to his “Golden Rule” he would probably be respected today as a great Chancellor.

          The problem is that he started fudging it. And rather than trying to turn back, he got hooked on profligacy.

          13eastie’s Law: Expenditure on an overhead cannot be an investment. Period.

          Throwing money away, never to be seen again is not investment. Yet you still hear Labour MP’s blathering about “investing in jobs” – perhaps the biggest lie they’ve told. Investments come straight back onto the balance sheet. Overheads don’t. Just try and add up the man-years of unproductive “work” Labour has sponsored since 1997…

          Labour will never accept any of these things. They will continue to blame the investment banks for everything, though history will show that bailing out the (retail) banks, which cost very little (arguably zero) cash in the grand scheme of the national debt, will turn out to be the most profitable investment ever made by a UK government.

          Labour is an economic deceit.

No more boom and bust, a massive boost to the treasury from my prudent selling of gold bullion, a pensions industry which is envied across the globe. But we cannot stop here. There is more to be done. Younger, less experienced hands are in charge now, which is why I will be offering prime minister Ed Milliband my expertese in a new role as special advisor. It is the right thing to do. Thank you and goodnight.

          I think that image can be taken further.

          10 Westminster Place.
          Gordon in the John Christie role.

          “His unassuming demeanour masks the fact of being a serial spender. His modus operandi is to act as a person with an economics background, lure unsuspecting middle class voters to his apartment on the pretence of curing them of poor people’s guilt, knock them unconscious with stealth taxes, gain his sexual release through contact with the taxpayers billions, then when he realises the victim is now financially dead, disposing of the body. Usually by burying it in his back yard and blaming the Tories.”

      On what basis ? Is her life in danger if she is returned to Zimbabwe ?

      Just because she was kicked off X Factor should she be exempt from UK Immigration Laws ? I don’t think so. Where do you draw the line ? It may be tough but the UK Immigration Laws need to be adhered to and if you’ve lost your appeal for “Right to Remain” in the UK you need to be deported. No one, X Factor Contestants included,is above the law. I sincerely hope that the UKBA hangs tough and that no politician gets involved to overule the decision for purely populist reasons(as no doubt Brown would have) If Gamu has a valid reason to appeal against deportation or if her legal representatives feel that her Human Rights or life is at at risk then that is the basis for stopping the deportation.Not because of the fact that she appeared on some Televison Talent Contest
      So as far as I am concerned this is one petition I shall most definitely NOT be signing

    AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
    I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
    Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

    We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
    That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
    But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
    So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

    We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
    Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
    But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
    That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

    With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
    They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
    They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
    So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

    When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

    On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
    (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
    Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

    In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

    Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
    And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
    That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

    Part of the solution to the deficit and debt problem is to initiate another round of privatisation.

    This should start with breaking up and selling off the BBC. The capital proceeds would go towards paying down the debt, and the income derived from taxes on any surviving commercially-viable operations would go towards reducing the deficit.

    Abolishing the TV tax itself would release a welcome £3.4 billion per annum into the real economy, as well as being popular with the voters.

    And we would no longer be forced by law to keep paying for the BBC as yet another public-sector parasite — and hence with a vested interest in promoting leftist economic policies, in order to ensure its own squalid survival.
