Labour Wonks v Page 3 Girls

Labour wonk-shop IPPR have declared war on the Sun‘s Page 3 girls as they publish a report claiming that the government’s bleeding of motorists via high fuel taxes is just a “myth“. Earlier this week the Sun girls jumped on board the Taxpayers’ Alliance campaign to freeze fuel duty by showing their support at petrol stations up and down the country. Now IPPR has hit back, laughably arguing that the Chancellor “should make every effort to avoid further delays in fuel duty increases“. Will’s argument is unconvincing and not likely to be taken up by the Labour Party. “Vote Labour for higher petrol taxes” is a CCHQ dream slogan…

      I guarantee that a disproportionately large number of Labour supporters and Guardian readers have never got laid once in their life (and they wet the bed too). They then become feminists and bitterly try to shut down anyone else having fun. And they are relentless and will go through anything great or traditional and try to ruin it. Remember this:

      They’re so upset at the thought anyone else might like a big pair of tits. Guardian readers are such useless petty bastards.

      I think Will has been smoking what he was caught supplying again.

      Try being rural English folk in this country Will – do you and your war criminal father actually know any normal rural English people?

      Its like you and the Labour Party are at war with us – we are not landed gentry toffs – we are rural working class English and Labour has not only abandoned us, it is openly hostile to us, our heritage, culture, values and way of life.

      Try living where there is no Oyster Card public transport Will – try living where the bus service is not a service, it is an expensive infrequent favour.

        Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

        I do agree with everything you say about Straw Minor, but you should not forget that the main reason for the loss of rural bus services was the abolition of the stage licence system by Maggie in the 80s. Once unfettered competition came in then, naturally, companies only wanted to run profitable services in heavily populated areas. Not an argument for or against – just a fact. May be worth bearing in mind the risk of similar effects if postal deliveries are opened up without safeguards.

          Another socialist who is dependent on the magic money tree to solve societies ills. The stage licence was simply not economically viable as it did not produce a consumer-oriented service and could not compete against the rise of mum’s wheels as the Country became prosperous after recovering from 20 years of Heath/Wilson mis-government. cheer up. because there is every chance that a Labour government in 2015-2020 will so impoverish the Nation that there will be enough rural unemployed to revitalise collective transport once more.

            Official: QE is making the rich richer

            The Bank of England has admitted that Britain’s richest 5 per cent have been the biggest winners from quantitative easing – attempts to end the recession by creating electronic money. But the Bank has defended its policy, saying it has prevented our economic woes worsening still further.

            grumpyoldmanuk; try commenting on something you know about. When this change was made my family’s coach firm stopped running rural services in the west as they lost money. No problem for us (apart from having to sell a few old buses) but the villages affected did have problems. The elderly were especially affected and the predominantly Tory councillors were outraged. Complete hypocrisy. I was not arguing for the system, just pointing out to Mrs Smith that Maggie was the cause of there being no public transport in villages – which you seem to acknowledge.

Not ONE of this bunch of misfits has earned their riches by putting their own money on the line in business enterprises and hard work.
