    Fucking hell, the terrible thing about this quote is that this idiot truly believes it, as do all the stupid Socialists – other than the Toynbees of this world who are just out for what they can get.

    Is anyone in the public sector accountable for anything they screw up?

    It is good to see Labour finally admit they failed over the past 13 years.

        They always fail as wealth is created by reciprocation and socialism is not reciprocal (i.e. it destroys wealth).

    13 years of Labour can hardly be claimed to have given us a better tomorrow!!

    More likely 10 years of austerity, these Socialists are in total denail!!

    Labour wins when people have forgotten how much they fucked it up the last time; Labour loses when they fuck it up again. Tories win to put right Labour’s mess, once mess put right, Tories lose. UK politics in a nutshell.

    Is that a typo or is he saying that you’re gambling with your future by supporting Labour ? (In which case he’s not wrong.)

    Typical Labor – cannot believe their own words so have to repeat themselves.

    When the whole country suffers collective amnaesia and have forgotten how corrupt, destructive and useless Labour is, only then the Labour Party will win.

    Mr Alexander, how about promising to provide a better today? Because that’s what we all want. We’ve been promised jam tomorrow, from you socialists, for the past 100 or so years and all you have given us is marmite.

    Offering a better yesterday is meaningless.

    In so far as Labour is Leftist, it believes in the construction of a better future, through some kind of Utopian intervention, which some would call interference, whereas a party of the Right always wants to start with what has worked in the past, and build on it.

    Labour will win if and only if (a) the Utopian intervention is seen by the voters to be required AND (b) Labour is seen to be intelligent, clearsighted and competent.

    Till then, they will remain in the wilderness.

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.”
