First there was the man from the Sun:

Then the chairman of the Lobby:

And then the man from the Mirror:

Is there an echo in here?

    It couldn’t be that the leftwing booing got such bad press and poor reception from the general public that they realised they were doing their own cause more harm than good & desisted?

    I don’t think so, and Cameron obviously feels that way too.

    Good on the paralympians and the crowd for letting their feelings be heard.

    The International Institute for Labour Studies says:

    “Social and cash transfers [following the credit crunch] not only assisted those in need, but by putting cash in the hands of those most likely to spend it, helped to shore up household consumption. For this reason, countries that strengthened the policies towards income transfers managed to recover faster than others.”

    1. Cutting welfare can damage growth

    When deep cuts to welfare dramatically reduce the incomes of families who are already on low incomes, the opposite of fiscal stimulus happens: fiscal hindrance. Billions of pounds are removed from the active economy, so struggling businesses lose customers and lay off more staff. A vicious cycle is created.

    2. Welfare cuts are shrinking the UK economy

    Economists say that in a recession, increased welfare spending has a strong multiplier effect of around 1.6. This means every £1 is worth £1.60 to national income once it has worked its way around the economy through shop tills and pay cheques. When welfare is cut, the multiplier works in reverse. So £20bn of welfare cuts could depress the economy by as much as £32bn – more than 2% of GDP.

    3. The chancellor wants even deeper cuts

    Despite the damage the cuts are causing, George Osborne wants to cut another £10bn from welfare. This will not just be a social disaster, it could cut a further 1% off the economy, meaning a longer depression, a larger deficit and more debt for Britain.

    £20bn of welfare cuts could depress the economy by as much as £32bn – more than 2% of GDP – with Osborne’s plans to slash another billion potentially shaving another 1% off the economy.

    Yet more evidence of the damage being done, yet more reason for a Plan B – but is anyone in government listening?

    It couldn’t possibly be that the same thought occurred to all three separately, as it must have done to, oh, I don’t know, MULTITUDES of other people, owing to the fact that it IS what that idiot was doing, FFS?

    Moussa Koussa's pet meerkat says:

    I think you’ll find that the banks did a lot of the damage. You know, those private companies who needed massive state bailouts. Capitalism at its most hideous.

    And the twats that ran them escaped prison too.

    Yes. Cleaning up Labour’s mess is unpopular. Someone has to do it.

    Think about it. Most people in receipt of benefits spend the lot, and in this country too. Unlike the Hunts who earn a fortune and ship it out to their tax havens.

    Moussa Koussa's pet meerkat says:

    Maybe sCameron thought it through for himself. Or did he ask one of his special advisors?

    Also, please explain what the banks had to do with Brown and Blair’s enormous borrowing years before the financial crash happened.

    Who were the engineers in creating modern banking in UK. Yup, Brown and Balls. The Glass Steagall act was put in place by the US to prevent bankers getting too big for their books. Now Ballsup is learning that if you don’t learn from history, you make the same mistakes.

    UKIP.i.am.awake says:

    You mean those banks like Lehman Brothers that were actively encouraged to take risks by Gordon Brown?

    “I would like to pay tribute to the contribution you and your company make to the prosperity of Britain,” Mr Brown told Lehman bankers in London’s Canary Wharf . “During its 150 year history, Lehman Brothers has always been an innovator, financing new ideas and inventions before many others even began to realize their potential.”

    How quickly they forget. The Amnesiac Olympics started in May 2010 and shows no sign of ending.

  42. 42
    Lefties are delusional says:

    Is that really the sum total of leftie economics? “Give people handouts because they spend them all, and the money goes back into the economy which, er, helps.” The money goes to Tesco, or Asda, or wherever they buy their booze and fags; that money then goes to shareholders, which nowadays probably means to the Middle East. At least the rich employ people, or put their money into new start-ups, or buy houses. That is how money gets put back into the economy; not by getting the state to bankroll Waynetta’s 100-a-day habit.

    Not if the public sector strikers and the left-wing BBC have any say.

    SP4BS says:

    I’m sure such things do “boost the economy” in some way or other.
    However, to me it just looks like a “perpetual motion machine”, that you know can’t really work.
    Perhaps they think that the tax will come back from the poundshops and happy shoppers, or that they will be able to borrow more and more forever.

    There is a bit of a truth in this though – its a bugger to get out of the hole. its far from clear what sort of digging they’re supposed to do to get out.

  45. 45
    UKIP.i.am.awake says:

    Did Labour put anything on the statute books to regulate banks after the credit crisis? Oh no they did what they always do. Left it up to another government to sort out their mess. Same as with the energy situation, Same as with public sector reform. Same as with welfare reform. Same as with health reform. Same as with education qualification reform.

  46. 46
    SP4BS says:

    Banks and bankers are supposed to be able to judge risks, and make decisions.

    I’m sure that in reality they didn’t give a shit whether Brown praised them or not.

    What did YOU think of Gidiot raising of VAT to a massive 20%? Did he not think that this would suppress the economy, stifle growth and kill demand? Do YOU believe VAT is a regressive or progressive tax? Poorer people support their local economies more than those with more money and cars etc, poorer people spend all their disposable income, usually in their local economies, so raising VAT would straight away reduce their spending power and reducing their spending power will have a direct effect on their local economies – wouldn’t it?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
