Back to Basics For Balls

Unemployment has fallen by 36,000 to 2.46 million in the three months to March. Youth unemployment also fell 30,000 to 934,000. That is the second quarter in a row the numbers have fallen.

The dastardly Ed Balls and his Muttley-like SpAd Alex Belardinelli are unusually quiet this morning…

    On the subject of girls, my girlfriend tried to board KLM Business Class this am in Manila, to fly to London, and was prevented from boarding by Philippine immigration. They demanded that she present my passport and other ID papers!!!!!

    As she doesn’t as a rule carry these she got her bags back and left. She’ll try boarding again tomorrow am, with copies of said documents.

    Someone told me his wife had to pay £800 to get out of the country. Nightmare.

    Here’s a pic of her and me two weeks ago.

    Good set of figures for the government. We must support UK manufacturing industry by cutting public expenditure and then, after reducing the deficit and debt mountain, cutting taxes. Manufacturing industry soaks up the unemployed and those who are not sufficently academically minded to go to university, even some of the 3rd rate ones. We should be proud of our manufacturing industry just like the Germans. My sector is doing OK at the moment.

    The so-called claimant count increased by 12,400 last month to 1.47 million, the largest increase in 16 months, the Office for National Statistics said. Economists were expecting a decline of between 4,000 and 10,000.”

But every job created in the private sector is worth 2 public sector jobs as it isn’t eating tax revenue from the private sector! Any tax paid by the public sector is just re-cycling money.

I suspect he’s not alone…it’s all a merry-go round playing the numbers game and it doesn’t mean that the jobs created are either full time or permanent

    Except IF the gummint borrowed that money from the BoE. Then it was created specifically for the purpose of being public sector money, however it would still have to be repaid by taxation and so return to the BoE with interest, thus being a bigger drain on the private sector than simply taxation funded spending alone.

    Or the government could combine all their different loans into one manageable monthly payment with Ocean Finance.

    That depends on the type of work and who gets the contract and why.

    Under labour, loads of public sector work was invented and then privatised by selling the service to be run by elected official’s cronies, but instead of going fully private, and getting the users of the services to pay for those services direct, thus allowing authorities to cut taxation and leaving the privatised services to compete fairly in the “real world” These services would STILL be paid for out of taxation, often with protected and preferential contracts, but without any democratic oversight and often costs exploded causing taxes to increase.

    Much of the privatisation which occured under labour did not benefit the end-user, the tax-payer or anyone other than the people who set up a “private” parasite to leach off the taxpayer.

    REAL privatisation means that the service is no longer provided by, nor paid for by, the taxpayer.

    Labour’s privatisations are more like a merger between the corporations and the state. AKA fascism.

    We had the very same cycle in 2003-4 in manufacturing. Feedstock and energy prices prices rising for 7 successive quarters; a diminishing UK material supply and customer base. UK manufacturers were hard-pressed to compete with continental competitors as much material and product had to bear the cost of crossing the channel – and the Asians, unfettered by climate change taxes, were knocking on the customers door selling at less than our manufacturing price.

    The results will be the same. Companies cutting back on investment and jobs as they chase the selling price down to maintain volume. Many will off-shore or go to short working to reduce unsold inventory. Loading yet more environmental taxes, unilaterally, at this stage of recovery is the economics of the madmen. And not what you would expect of a Tory (led) government.

    That means having a government who then has to spend less than it takes in taxation, continually and for decades to come.

    You cannot turn around a debt which has been increased by a deficit the size of a Black Wednesday happening every week, that quickly.

    Poor Tapestry, thinking with his dick. He really thinks that the attractive girl half his age likes him for himself and not for the western passport that’ll allow her to bring in her extended family whilst he stumps up the cash for schooling, clothes, rent for these troughers in the interim. Wakey wakey Tap – you’re her meal ticket outta there and she’ll dump you asap, once she’s got the citizenship. Tell me, did you pay to have “schmuck” tattooed across your forehead?

    Is she also one of those ‘Philippino birds’ from the Far East ?

    My God. I’d never thought of that. How can I say this to a sex-starved blinkered xenophobe such as you?

    We love each other.

    OK? Got it? She doesn’t want citizenship, or residence. She wants to be with me, and I with her. We live in Manila, and want to visit the UK. That’s it. The bureaucrats are trying to get a ride on that. They let through the crooks who bribe their way in.

    My dick is attached to my heart. I hope yours is. Or is it attached to your right hand? Try letting go occasionally.

    Errr, yes you can.

    You can stop paying the EU.

    You can close DFID.

    You can cut business tax & persoanl tax.

    The reason none of this happens is because we have no Conservatives in the Coalition worth a damn, just Liberals who believe in the Big State.

    The number of short term unemployed (under 12 months) has dropped by 36k; long-term (over 12 months) has increased by 20k.

    With the Youth unemployment figures if 10k signed on and 40k became adults and moved over to the adult list the figures have dropped by 30k without anyone on the list getting a job. Not saying that’s what happened; just that one figure isn’t that much use.

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.”
