        Dear Francis, Love Julia…

        How close is the current “evil tory” administration to the Marxist Common Purpose “charity” And why on earth would socialists be in opposition to that? Jealousy?

        The coalition government could easily save a few more millions by banning Common Purpose altogether.

          @ Mr Ned – the truth is that Common Purpose and the Fabians are the only ones who are ‘all in it together’. The rest of us have become so fragmented as to be inconsequential – which, of course, is what tptb prefer. It’s so much easier to divide and control a disparate populace than one that truly has ‘community cohesion’.

          As for ‘the right’ and Cameron: they’ve been living on borrowed time since May 6th and its time they ‘upped’ their game if they want to present themselves as representatives of the British people.

        A BBC Spokesperson says:

        Todays mass demonstration of an estimated, half a million public sector workers, demonstrated the sheer size of the growing revolt against the coalitions cuts package.
        Many dressed in dinosaur outfits to represent the backward looking, unprogressive coalition position, regarding vital, front line public sector workers. Ed Milband, who had been expected at the mass rally but who had to stay in bed with tonsillitis, said in a statement ” The coalition is only just begining to realise the fury they are stoking among vital, front line, public sector workers and their dependant families”. “The visceral hatred shown by the toffs in power, is a stark reminder, if any were needed, of the worst of the Thatcher years”.

    Much wittier than waving a banana, but you can believe in the deficit and still have concerns about the cuts (even if you’re convinced that cuts are necessary). Those who believe n the deficit don’t believe that the cuts are going to plunge us back into a recession because the private sector is going to rise, phoenix-like and mop up the rising unemployment budget? New jobs, if any, will come from selling off public sector services to private companies (has worked well so far as service always comes before profit – cheap, efficient train journeys… efficient, regular refuse collection… hmmm). And the front line won’t be affected at all – only those pointless non-jobs will be going, thank God. And if things go wrong – like the 25% of ‘independent’ academies that are already in the red – the public will always bail ‘em out. So what’s the downside of the cuts? Those affected will simply move to an island – like ‘Escape from New York’, perhaps – and look after their own sick and elderly and mentally ill; and create their own justice system for the criminals that we can’t afford to imprison or monitor on their community sentences.

    We’ll be in paradise.

      Thanks for a lucid exposition, which is somewhat different from the usual standards encountered here.

      The whole notion that private enterprise will somehow, either post-recession or in the early stages of a double-dip, succeed in taking up the slack ignores the fact that it could already have done so under more favourable conditions, but hasn’t really achieved anything of the sort. The presumption that dumping a lot of cheap and desperate labour, in the form of ex-public employees, will somehow galvanise private enterprise into top form is risible.

      On a more pedantic note, I am as sick of this “Deniers” tag (as in Climate Change, Holocaust, Deficit etc.) as I am am of people doing things “on a daily.weekly/monthly BASIS”.

        Sadly you are right. The slack lazy unproductive nature of a vast number of public sector workers (particularly but not exclusively council office workers) makes them unemployable in the real world – and that’s the opinion of my neighbor who runs an employment agency, based on the attitude of her clients towards employing them, and their experience of those they have employed in the past.

    Looking at this morning’s Grauniad, it’s clear that the Left is now really scared. It’s dawning on them that the game is over – at least for the next decade – and they are starting to fantasise about a revolution. The strikes and riots in France are making them stain their underwear.

    The instability of our present model for Government is a grave threat to society. The present model, here and elsewhere, is one of continued expansion of Government spending, provision and control. This has been going on, as a long-term trend, since at least the 16th century. Clearly it must end at some point and, well before that, countries under such Governments would become very unpleasant and poor places. The model is not sustainable.

    dave and his colleagues are proposing only a rather modest adjustment to the model, to meet short-term pressure. We need a vision of a new, long-term method of Government that is effective and self-limiting. This is, fundamentally, an anti-socialist idea, but it ought to appeal to liberals as well as conservatives if it can be explained to them carefully. There is nothing liberal about the current model.

    Its interesting to hear the fat cow pestering the Dontchathinkhesaurus about who was funding them, repeatedly. Sad to think the first question from one political protester to another is who is paying them to be there, very sad.

        I caught an interview that I didn’t quite follow where she was being tactful.

        So it was only in my imagination that she said “Someon would have to pay for the early retirements, and its not going to be us”. “you set of lazy twats”

    AND some of the dipshits that had a foto/video taken (look mum, I’m on telly/in the papers!) with the Denyosaurus were fucking NUT members – presumably from the “Illiteracy Wing” as they obviously could not read wot was on the placards.

    I only saw a couple of dozen demonstrators – how was that a “Mass Rally”?

    Cue reruns of Drop The Dead Donkey with beeboids overturning cars and fighting with police to “get the story”.

    I have a serious question – how did the banks manage to persuade Gordon Brown in 1998 to massively increase the public sector payroll/Quangos over the 10 years before the Banks themselves went pop? Everyone tries to tell us it was the Banks wot done it, but they did not up government spending in an unsustainable way, did they? They fucked up royally in the way they run themselves and should be made to pay, but I fail to see how the Banks caused this fucking huge public spending problem – that was just yer normal Labour Party incompetence?

    John Redwood explains the “cuts” with brilliant clarity.

    Let’s have one last go at putting public spending into a normal perspective. Let us say your salary last year was a healthy £60,000, thanks to Labour. You are told that you will have a cash rise every year, taking your salary up to £69,250 in 2014-15. Unfortunately your interest bill is going up because you have a large mortgage and you are still adding to your credit card debt. How much do you think you would have to cut out from your “real” budget by 2014-15? Would you be planning major surgery if your pay increase was only £9,250 a year by 2014-15? If you simply add 7 noughts to those figures you have current total public spending, or the public sector’s total income including borrowing for current purposes.

    This country is screwed, totally and utterly.

    There is no way as things stand at the moment that we can afford to support the population of the country.

    We have no industry to speak of: manufacturing is dying, agriculture employs a fraction of what it used to, fishing is dead, mining is dead, coal because we don’t need South Wales as we don’t run steam engines and the rest because of acid rain (remember that), minerals because we don’t make anything much – certainly not the large amounts of steel that ship building used to need.

    Yes folks, we are fucked, and we STILL have to pay off the debts incurred by the one-eyed Scots Idiot, but only when we have stopped over-spending.
