Osborne’s Speech Word Cloud

Tories were quick to spot last week that there was no mention of the “deficit” word in Ed Miliband’s conference speech. Ed Balls’ political advisor is claiming, similarly, that there is no mention of “growth” in Osborne’s speech.

Actually there was one fleeting reference, Osborne said he would go on “making the fundamental, deep-rooted changes needed so our country can grow and compete and prosper.”  Just the one mind you…

    He did quote the Communist manifesto http://kebabtime.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/bad-marx-george.html

    I find that quite worrying!

    Terrible But True says:

    ‘4,000 word speech & not a single mention of ‘growth’.’

    “making the fundamental, deep-rooted changes needed so our country can grow and compete and prosper.”

    So there was one, single mention then?

    Making political advisory tweets less than worthwhile on any basis, especially accuracy.

    Unless there is now a commitment to semantics that would make Bill Clinton blush… even more.

    Be interesting to see how the tribal media PR supporters fare as they ply their impartial trade in the cause of information and education.

    Funny how Balls, and Miliband can’t tell us how growth occurs, because they can’t connect lower taxes, and enterprise with its consequences.

    I can’t see the words ‘Whoops!’ or ‘Sorry!’ for some reason.

    Leaving Edinburgh says:

    Deficit is an unelectable word. Further, Labour would have to take responsibility if they were to use the word deficit.
    Everyone knows the economy will take at least another year to improve. No point in being unrealistic.

    I thought that was a truly excellent speech from the man of the moment .

    it is only a matter of time until the party recognises his true worth and rewards him accordingly .

    He is on a bashing for nothing. Use the ‘G’ word and there ain‘t no ‘G’ they nail him to the wall. If there is ‘G’ then it won’t be enough ‘G’ and he still gets shit! Better forget it and go for shrinkage ‘S’ word!

    god, i hate them all says:

    Keep an eye on Sinn Fein’s bluff being called at Stormont tomorrow over welfare reform.
    They are desperately trying to appear tough on the issue given the majority of their voters are sponging benefit scroungers, on the make and on the fiddle.

    Chimpanzee says:

    It seems that George mentions more about the Labour Party and less of the Conservative Party. Yes, we all know that Labour are feckless morons that left the economy in a dire state, but I want to hear more about how the Conservatives will fix this, otherwise all it is going to breed is more non voters.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    The clue is in “deep-rooted fundamental changes” That means DON’T EXPECT ANYTHING FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS.

    When Gosbourne first opened his mouth and talked about growth, I said we are fucked, that fucking idiot could not grow weeds in his back garden. Looks like I am right and Gosbourne is going down in history with Boom Bust Brown as the worst chancellors in UK history.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    It took Labour 7 years, until 2004, to fuck the economy. George should get 7 years to turn it round.

    7 years is nowhere near enough to repair the damage caused by Bliar and Co.

    I think he is mooting ‘sterilization’ of the feckless fokkers – ‘pop ‘em out and you get nowt’!!

    That’s OK but if prices do not come down to match what then, food riots

    He did once, but he started climbing the greasy union ladder and never looked back (down)

    John Johnson says:

    GtK Gideon did not say “Growth” unless he muttered it under his breath, “Low taxes, economic enterprise = working economy” so what has happened so far

    Gideon is a growth and needs removing.

    Yes, poor George. It amused me every time he paused after a dreadful joke for the obligatory (if somewhat unenthusiastic) applause. An audience like that would be on their way to labour camps by now if this was North Korea.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
