Osborne’s “Clear Position” on the IMF

This £10 billion bailout for the IMF brings the total Osborne has pledged to £40 billion, or some £666 for each and every man, woman and child in the Britain. In October last year after British taxpayers sent £9 billion to the IMF – £9 billion that Osborne had to borrow, Osborne told the House of Commons categorically:

“Britain will not be putting money into the bail-out fund either directly or through the IMF…. The IMF exists to support countries, it does not exist to support currencies… The IMF contributing money to the eurozone bail-out fund, no; Britain contributing money to the eurozone bail-out fund, no. That is Britain’s clear position.” 

The Chancellor could not be any more clear, he gave his word, it was an unqualified promise. Which Osborne has now broken.

    The financial system of the world is sitting on the edge of a precipice and on the verge of collapse. If this money is not put in to the IMF and things turn tits up, we Troughers are going to suffer more than most. That is why Gideon is putting the £10BN into the IMF, self preservation of the Troughers, after all we are all in it together, that is why you mug taxpayer’s are paying for it.

    Osborne, you have no right to put me further into debt. Whilst I am a naturally right of centre voter, your pandering to unelected bodies and your doling out of our cash to support lame duck political currencies means that you can no longer count on my support at the next election. You preach austerity yet are profligate in flashing the UK PLC credit card at all and sundry. The Conservative Party are clearly demonstrating that they are not the answer to the disasterous Labour years. Either buck up and stop supporting the Euro and it’s political agenda or expect a large swing to a real centre right party come GE time. Many regards, Stan.

    There is an Election here in France on Sunday so no one can speak about anything which is all a little too convenient.

    1. The favourite the Socialist Hollande wants to spend his way out of recession and renegotiate the Eu fiscal pact as well as scraping the pension age increases. Top rate tax to be 75% and he is promising to cap the price of petrol!

    2. Sarkozy is talking about pushing the ECB and EU for more growth strategies whilst at the same time warning that Bond rates will increase if he is not reelected saying the socialist guy is a complete twat.

    3. The fascist LePen wants to go back to the franc and pursue protectionist policies whilst singing the national anthem

    4 . The far left candidate Melanchon wants to increase the minimum wage by 25% and have a maximum wage of 200,000€

    5. The anticapitalists want the workers to take over all the factories.

    The only thing which is for definite is that Hollande is a twat who makes that last Spanish guy look like the brain of Catalan.

    And as we said back in January, following the example of Sir Hugh Dowding in 1940

    To
    David Cameron
    Prime Minister
    10 Downing Street
    London W1.

    Sir,
    I have the honour to refer to the very serious calls
    which have recently been made upon the currency Reserves
    in an attempt to stem the German invasion on the Continent.

    2. I hope and believe that that the Euro may yet be
    victorious in France and Belgium, but we have to face the
    possibility that it may be defeated.

    3. In this case I presume that there is no-one who will
    deny that England should carry on, even though the remainder of
    the Continent of Europe is dominated by the Germans.

    4. For this purpose it is necessary to retain some
    minimum financial strength in this country and I must request that
    the Monetary Policy Committee inform me what they consider this minimum
    strength to be, in order that I may make my dispositions
    accordingly.

    5. I must point out that within the last few years the
    equivalent of £20 billion have been sent to France, that the
    reserves remaining in this country are seriously
    depleted, and that the more pound sterling which is sent to France
    the higher will be the wastage and the more insistent the
    demands for mores.

    6.Once a decision has been reached as to the limit on
    which the Bank of England and the Cabinet are prepared to stake the
    existence of the country, it should be made clear to the Europ/ean Leaders on the Continent that not one more pound from this nation will be sent across the Channel, no matter how desperate the situation may become.

    I have the honour to be,
    Sir,
    Your obedient Servant,
    William Quango MP
    Select Committee Officer Commanding-in-Chief,
    Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

Even if the monies should be used to support an Europe@n economy, the UK economy cannot survive alone if many valuable foreign markets go to the wall.
    People seem to have forgotten Brown p*ssed more than 12 billion extra profit down the drain selling gold at a pittance, to use what remained, to generate non jobs for the boys. This might shore up what remains for actual workers.

    – 20% rise i the minimum wage
    -100% top rate of tax
    – retirement for all at 60.

    Hollande is going to Melenchon’s votes to win. Expect some batshit socialist utopian deal to be made and France to drop even further behind Germany.

    BTW – 1938 France voted in a far left socialist government. Workers occupied arms factories and demanded to be given them as their own. Or they would burn them down. Blum persuaded them to take a 20% pay rise , the 40-hour week, extra paid holidays for the workers, collective bargaining on wage claims and the nationalisation of the arms industry.

    All very noble stuff.

    Except, of course, two years later, the Wehrmacht turned up, over ran the unfinished defences, and inadequate armaments and beat the crap out them.

    That’s £1billion less than Camoron pisses down the drain every year on our EU membership.

    And then you have to add the £11billion to that Camoron pisses away every year on foreign aid. To countries with space-programmes.

    And then you have to add to that the billions that Camoron pisses away on Euro bailouts. After he promised he wouldn’t.

    And then you have to stomach Camoron’s cuts to our defence spending/hospitals/education/police/care for the elderly “because we’ve got no money”.

    Camoron’s head should be staved in with a brick.

    Milton Friedman's Ghost says:

    A clear case of a sinking ship looking after the Captain and Officers (Troughers) first. It was, it is, and ever will be, the system looking after itself, unfortunately. Remember, I said , many years ago ‘any Government put in charge of the Sahara Desert, would run out of sand in five years’ and my good friend who sits on the same cloud as me, Descartes said ‘any person putting themselves forward for service in public life (politics) should be banned from it, on the basis they have put themselves forward.’ Government puts itself first, always has and always will. Unfortunatedly they have f*c ked up so much this time that they are desperately trying to preserve their own status quo. Unfortunately, it is not going to work and the poor taxpayer is going to be fleeced of £trillions, as the ship sinks. Remember politicians are by definition incompetent and are generally drawn for one of two backgrounds – those who have failed at their chosen career and those who have never had a career in the first place.

    This Vichy regime of Quislings has done nothing but lie from the election on, its what they do and its in their DNA. If you believe a word this regime utters then you are either stupid to the point of comatose or one of them.

    There is nothing the Vichy regime will not do for Brussels, NOTHING.
    They are Brussels and Brussels is them, they are one and the same and they will happily and eagerly sell us out for their mess of pottage.

    It is almost inconceivable to any normal person the extent of the treason, it is a cancer that now rules from the level of local council to Westminster and almost every national institution in between.

Don’t buy property – it is an illiquid “asset” and will be the next BIG tax take from local and central Government.

    It is you that is endorsing their failed policies every time you vote for them. You are giving credibility to them each time you vote for them. You are keeping them alive with your votes. This is down to you. Wipe them out like the Canadians did just a few years ago. They will never give you a vote on Europe , never, remember that, when they sign up to the next treaty!

    Voting UKIP now makes perfect sense to anyone who wants to send a clear message to the EU Banker Party (LabDemCon). The so called Tory Euro Sceptics are a waste of time, they are too spinless to act as they fear splitting the Tory Party which in truth is what needs to happen to create a Real Conservative Party. So vote UKIP and watch the fun you really have got nothing to lose but it might just kick off the real battle to win back the Tory Party from the That Clueless Toff Cameron and his Chums. I’ve voted Tory for 30 years but not this time

    Osborn is a boy in a man’s job. A prize prat.

    We are badly led by all parties. Blair & Cameron are double glazing salesmen. Brown was incompetent on financial matters-beyond belief. Osborne is a part timer with inadeqate intellect.

    We’re very clever
    And lie to you all the while
    You fell for our promise especially the CAST IRON trick
    We’re all from Eton, and you lot are all too thick.

    If you think I’ll claim back powers,
    You haven’t got a clue
    We’ll hand the UK to Merkle,
    There is nothing that you can do
    No referendums Changes through on the nod
    I am the PM and I’m a duplicitous sod

    As for immigration
    I know it gets on your tits
    I will flood the nation
    And pay their benefits
    I am from Eton; I am one of the ruling class
    If you don’t like it, you can just kiss my ****

    If I agreed the Treaty
    Things that it would amend
    Required referendums
    And that would be the end
    We’d be out of Europe and that’s what the public crave
    But I’m undemocratic, just call me dictator Dave

    Clegg is making noises
    Pretending he did not know
    If he really meant it
    Lib-Dems would pack up and go
    There all in it together, and David is now all smiles
    He has silenced the sceptics, with the aid of the Europhiles

    This has been a carve up
    Helped by Merkosy
    They need our money
    That is quite plane to see
    They played out the charade so it looks as if Dave’s alone
    But were still in the EU and we’ll pay for the Euro zone

    Jolly voting weather
    We are all Europhiles
    We’ve silenced the sceptics
    Look at their beaming smiles
    There’s no referendum, the sceptics are really thick.

    Lets face it these parties have all had their day
    Our politics need rearranging
    So go out and vote UKIP lets sweep them away
    For the times they are a changing

    Not one of them listens to our point of view
    They’d sooner give our cash to the EU
    So lets kick them out and try something new
    We can’t afford this lot remaining
    Political rethink is long overdue
    For the times they are a changing

    They lied about Lisbon and promised a vote
    There all Europhiles and in the same boat
    Their treachery just bring a lump to my throat
    As each other they just keep blaming
    So send them a message and let them take note
    That the times they are a changing

    We will no longer tolerate lies being told
    Tax breaks for the rich but more tax for the old
    Ruled from the EU and our birthrights sold
    They ignore us when we are complaining
    If we all vote UKIP there out in the cold

    Sorry, Guido, but I firmly believe that you are wrong. Osborne has not broken any promise. The promise that you cite was when he declined to participate in a bail-out fund for the €uro. That promise (presumably!) still stands.

    The £10 billion that ‘we’ are lending to the IMF is to prop up ‘the global economy’, which is vastly different; it’s merely increasing the fighting fund. It will have a coupon on it, but I’m sorry that I really can’t be arsed to check it on a fine Saturday afternoon. In much the same way, I can’t be arsed to see if anyone else has made this point!

    The £10 billion is not being handed over as part of the doomed task of saving the €uro from the excesses of the profligate economies. That’s a job for the Germans and not us, thank all the gods. Osborne has had a very weak hand to play for the last two years, and he’s playing in rather well.

    Osborne like any politician has a life-after-office and it is stupid to think that does not colour his every thought and decision.

    Political “corruption” now is not money put in back pockets but companies and international organizations gaming politicians by making them dream about getting Blair-type over-paid jobs, consultancies and conference appearances.

    That ten billion–its the best investment Osborne every made in the future earning Osborne. Get real about it.

    MandyPickleSniffer says:

    Typical Guardian crap, and a typical response from a Guardian reading c’unt. Who cares what Cameron’s dead father made or how rich he was? What exactly is your fucking point? Do you really want the PM to be an average Joe Blogs who got 4 O-levels and makes £18k per year?? I want the leader of the country to be the absolute best that the country can produce. That doesn’t mean that he has to be aristocracy or even the richest guy in the country, but it pretty much DOES mean that he’s risen to some level of success & has made a reasonable amount of money in some line of work or another. And if his father and his grandfather were succesful then what’s the problem with that? What is this fucking obsession with rich-bashing? What kind of country do you want to live in….one where there’s no aspiration to be successful and where people get savaged for rising to the top? Should I deliberately put my kids in shite schools instead of trying to give them the best possible opportunities, just for fear of them getting ripped to shreds by some socialist c’unt later on when they’re older? All you c’unts ever seem to want is some uneducated moron like Prescott who would embarrass the hell out of the country when representing us. And it’s all just so hypocritical anyway…you Labour wankers want to be rich just as badly as anyone else, yet you lie about it & hide behind your “in touch with the poor people” facade. Meanwhile, like Ken Livingstone, you take every single opportunity you can to avoid taxes and game the system.
