Rich & Mark’s Monday Morning View


  1. 1
    Ed Miliband (Leader of the Party opposite) says:

    The number of working households forced to rely on housing benefit since the recession began in 2008 has doubled – a trend that will lead to a million earners being dependent on welfare to keep a roof over their heads by the next election, according to a report.

    The Home Truths study by the National Housing Federation found that in May 2012 there were 903,440 working recipients of housing benefits – more than double the figure for November 2008 and a jump that signifies an alarming rise in in-work poverty.

    As private rents rise faster than wages, another 10,000 working people a month need housing benefit to afford their rent. By the next election, the study warns, 1.2 million “strivers” will only be able to stay in their homes through welfare payments.

    The federation’s analysis is that housing is becoming unaffordable as supply is outpaced by demand. The number of households in Britain is growing three times as fast as the number of homes being built.

    In England by 2018 the average weekly rent will be £245, up from today’s £181, a leap of 35%, the study says. The lingering recession means house prices will fall next year but then rise sharply. By 2018 homes in England will cost on average £292,060, almost £60,000 more than today.

    The result is that increasingly even those in work will not be able to afford to live in a home without benefits. David Orr, chief executive of the federation, said: “We now have millions of families struggling to keep on top of their rents, priced out of the housing market, and nearly 10,000 more working families every month are now reliant on housing benefit to help pay their private rent. These people are the strivers the government wants to help, yet their future is looking bleak.”

    Reality altering and mind altering are two ways to bring about change. To any politician, perception is reality.

    So the emails have surfaced between Peter Rippon and other staff. Rippon has stepped down from his job and will be on holiday for a few weeks, out of quote’s way. Helen Boaden knew what was going on. George Emtwistle wrote to all BBC staff in November last year about it. Lord Grade said There were question marks, certainly. Greg Dyke former DG said on the Marr Show The statements about this were not strong enough So everyone at the BBC knew something was up even if proving it was another matter.

    Yet Mark Thomson can have the gall to claim During my time as director general of the BBC, I never heard any allegations or received any complaints about Jimmy Savile. Are these the ultimate in weasel words, just another part of the cover up or both?

    also seems the government is trying to silence the EDL, their 2 main guys have been arrested for “entering the USA illegally”, when they went to the 9/11 SION conference.

    Police arrested 30+ members on pre-crime, that they were planning to do something, they had done nothing at the time.

    Captn P says:

    This story as well as the Andrew Mitchell story are complete non-stories.

    1. Sitting in first class with a second class ticket is not illegal, nor is it “fare dodging”.

    2. Its pretty common practice for people to do this. I was a first season ticket holder for a number of years, so I speak from experience.

    3. When asked for your ticket you are given two options, shift to second or pay the upgrade fare – its up to you. There are no penalties, police or anything else at this point. You pay you stay, you don’t you leave.

    This whole story is complete and utter bollocks.

  10. 10

    Wasted opportunity with all those other stories around. They must spend days on making this stuff so cannot respond to changing events quickly enough.

    Osbourne is a cretin
    Much like Alex ferguson – he’s embarrassed!!! he’s spent years embarrassing the british public with his mad outburst, occasional abuse. bribery of referees, fearmongering, fuck off feruson you high order twat

  12. 12
    Captn P says:

    This is the real story. The same vigour that was used to pursue Murdoch must now be focused on the BBC.

    1. Are any of the senior managers fit persons?
    2. What compensation will be paid to victims of Saville?
    3. When will criminal charge be forth coming from the CPS?
    4. How can the BBC be restructured to be more accountable to the public and how can the public subsidy and license fee be eliminated?

    And finaly where is Tom Watson MP number 1 hypocrite?

  13. 13
    you gotta larf says:

    has Thompson left for america yet – can’t we have him departed – then barbequed on the front lawn of the bbc?

    UKIP.i.am says:

    It is indeed complete bollocks but any story involving class is one that media turds will big up. Why bother about a 40 year culture of child abuse at the BBC when we have fabricated stories like Osborne or someone swearing at a policeman, who are of course angels (my arse!)? If everyone who swore at a policeman was put in jail then there would be more people in jail than outside.

  15. 15
    you gotta larf says:

    quite – wanker

    the public are not allowed to know anything about these treacherous cretins are they?
    they are our betters and can do what the fuck they like with our money!!!
    jeez you are one fucking ass!!!!
    no wonder the country’s in the shit with you’re appeasing views everywhere
    fuck off

    Captn P says:

    But its all good, the tennants claim tax money from the government, they pay it to the landlords, the landlords spend it on more houses.

    Circulation of money it benefits us all?

    Speak for yourself.

    You are perfectly entitled not to like him or me for that matter, not arguing for that.

    Just pointing out that what the crime he supposedly committed wasn’t actaully anything at all.

    Maybe you need to get a life loser?

  20. 20
    UKIP.i.am says:

    The big laugh here is that the BBC have rolled out lots of people in their defence saying all this was ancient history and yet they never miss an opportunity to drag up Britain’s involvement in 300 year old slavery.

    Perhaps Osborne might ask the D of T why they thought Pendelinos and Voyagers were suitable for passenger use.

    Osborne’s mistake was to not laugh it off. As for the journalist was she really there, and she is a friend of the Labour Party?

    First Class Cover Ups – then look here.

    on the beach,sunglasses in the car says:

    Thanks for your advice.

    I have always travelled second class .

    In future i will continue to buy second class tickets and will sit in first class seats until someone asks me to move .

    I urge other people to do the same

    You will not be alone.

    Have a go next time you travel on the train. You will be asked to pay the upgrade fare or move to second class.

    The fact that you have a ticket when boarding the train will mean you are not a fare dodger.

    Or you just stupid?

    Fog on the Tyne says:

    There has never been a more opportune time to cut the BBC down to size. If Cameron had any bollocks or even political nous he would seize the main chance. Why should the general population be forced to finance overpaid luvvies,Labour propagandists and P doe facilitators?

    I don't need no doctor says:

    Ed Millionaireband, Tom Watson and Chris Bryant are up in arms over the BBC / Savile issue. All three are asking if the BBC is a fit and proper organisation.
    It’s wonderful to see that none of the three are hypocritical in any way.
    Then I woke up.

    Yossarian says:

    I love this blog, any story that criticises the Conservative party is instantly met with “remember what the Labour Party did” some criticism of the BBC or some other bonkers response.
    George Osbourne is not a none story as it is he who was behind the “we are all in it together” mantra when he then proves that he isn’t. More over, he demonstrates that he is prepared to cheat and defraud a company out of revenue and waits for the company to catch him out – yet was quick to condemn Jimmy Carr, there are clearly parallels – yet what Jimmy Carr was doing was legal.
    The BBC indeed has questions to answer, here is the thing- unchecked Murdoch would be phone tapping the Jimmy Saville victims.
    To the political genius who posted a video of Ed Milliband travelling first class – is there a point to this? He is travelling on a first class ticket! Not like George.

    Tell you what, love, try this:

    1. Stay with your ‘partner’ through thick and thin, sharing your income. It’s called taking responsibility.
    2. Keep your legs shut. Failing that, get your ‘partners’ to wear a sock or swerve at the crucial moment. That too is called taking responsibility.

    Tom Catesby says:

    Looks like the chickens have come home to roost. The consequence of the rip off of social housing, starting with Thatcher and continued by succeeding governments. No building programme of decent houses for rent. Local authorities were forbidden to spend rent receipts to maintain the fabric of properties and invest in new social housing. In a desperate attempt to appear to do something about a badly deteriorating housing situation, the trick is now to eject current tenants, who pay their rent and behave decently, were there are more bed roons in the house than they appear to need. Unless they pay an increas inrent per week per room, or sublet!

    Move George if you wish from First, to second, even put him in stowage. It matters not.
    You can take the man out of the class but you cannot take the class out of this man Osborne.
    That he was born into money is immaterial, something the average pleb will have difficulty understanding, but then envy is a resentful emotion.
    Nouveau riche like Pressclot or Kinnokio may now flout their recently attained silver spoons but trash remains trash despite their attempts to achieve any upgrade in their social standing.

    Well that is a fair point and in essence I don’t begrudge Osbourne travelling first class, why wouldn’t you if you could. he simply should have paid for it up front – then it would be a none story.
    Andrew Mitchell equally is not a none story – if as an officer one of his men had spoken to him like that his feet wouldn’t have touched the ground. This is a about common courtesy, any one who attempts to defend his actions either condones exceptionally rude behaviour or is simply being contrary.

    Anything to divert the attention, it would seem. Lessons will have to be learned just will not do.

    There are people still alive who have criminal culpability here. They must be brought to book. And there has been corporate criminality present too. By the BBC. It must be brought to book too.

    She is just one of many. It was all good fun and was not really about telling a true story. That takes too much skill, time and research. It is the immediately transmitted lie that is the pay dirt today.

    By the time this Saville affair concludes the BBC will be shown wholly unfit for purpose, such as to give Murdoch a whiter than white glow by comparison…

    Socialism is a severe mental illness says:

    “As a young student researching homelessness, I slept unannounced in hostels, nightshelters and government institutions for homeless people, with never a problem. Everywhere I was treated with friendliness and kindness by service users”

    ‘Service users’? Oh yeah.. ‘tramps’.

    You poor unfortunates who have not had the advantages of studying PPE at Oxford fail to realise that reality is a multi-layered and multi-perspective phenomenon. So that whilst many people see the present government as a bunch of pampered incompetent fuckwits who couldn’t run a chip shop, a deeper insight shows a cabinet at the top of its game and a PM of undisputed authority and judgement.

    Is it not amazing what a bit of old naff wallpaper has managed to fund, St. Paul’s, Oxford, First Class travel (sometimes paid for)

    His dad must have worked on the old Harry Enfield “we saw you coming” technique, one thing about the so called British upper classes, they are easy to convince that they simply must have the lastest in Indian restaurant wallpaper!

    That’s Peter Beresford writing in ‘The Guardian’. He went on to say: “One night after a party at a homelessness charity I slept over and was woken in the middle of the night to find a worker’s hand on my crotch.” But didn’t state whether he reported the incident

    Tough but intelligent approach to criminal justice, so SKY is telling us that Camoron is saying , how about cleaning up your own houses, the house of criminals would do for a start, followed by EU, until then like your green rubbish it’s just hot air, don’t forget 2015, you lose we lose.

    Yes! There is so much that was wrong with it that I was hard-pressed for which parts to quote.

    There cannot be any doubt that the Graun is attempting to dilute the impact, though.

    Rupert must be pissing himself.

    The strange thing is how these lefty schemes last for so long. The communist regime in Europe endured for 45 years. The BBC has actually festered for longer.

    Of course Osborne pays his own train fares out of his own pocket while on government business. That’s why he tried to blag it. Impossible that that some minion just bought him the wrong ticket.

    Huge story, deserves to be at the front of every blog and news site.

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.”
