Kelvin for Parliament

Kelvin MacKenzie has penned a withering attack on the main three parties in the Telegraph today, accusing George Osborne of sadistic tendencies and the government of failing to represent the south of England:

kelvin“Sick and tired of subsidising folk from the rest of the country? You belong to a select club – the club of the hard-working, clever and creative people living in London and the South East who single-handedly are giving the rest of the nation a standard of living they can’t, or won’t, create for themselves. George Osborne, the allegedly Conservative Chancellor, truly loves you. He loves squeezing the life out of your wallet. He loves your pain. And in his Autumn Statement on Wednesday he will be doing one more time what he does best – taxing the hell out of London and the South East.”

Reads like a PPB, doesn’t it? It’s no coincidence – Kelvin is calling for a new party to defend the interests of the south, even suggesting its manifesto might include home rule for London and the south-east. Needless to say his new plan has been greeted with near universal approval across the political divide. “A new dawn has broken has it not…”

    Where does the South begin?

    If they put in the infrastructure and decent schools across the whole country it wouldn’t be necessary to have the whole world crammed in to one small corner of the country.

    Thank you Kelvy baby you sir are the best recruiting Sergeant the SNP could wish for. By the way does Kelvy baby realize the reason the south is prosperous is because it is populated by Northern English Irish Scots and Europeans Innit Tho

    Despite the OTT rhetoric some interesting food for thought here. In the US there are ghost towns where once the local factory or factories closed down everyone simply upped sticks and moved on leaving a no mans land. A similar thing has happened in parts of former East Germany. In the UK we have a knack through benefits, regional subsidies, government jobs etc etc of keeping places ‘alive” long after any real reason for them being there has long since gone. Post de-industrialisation this includes huge swathes of the UK north of Watford. Of course not everyone can live in the South East and indeed the housing crisis is a fiction as there are plenty of empty streets in the North just no jobs.

    Kelvin MacKenzie is a self serving/publicizing odious sociopath who has made a fortune out of sensational tabloid spoutings at the expense of others.

    MacKenzie has never shown a conscience or remorse until either caught or forced by public opinion to look good (or at least better.

    Like Alistair Campbell, Nick Ferrari, Piers Morgan and Polly Toynbee, why does anybody listen to what these poison Wormtongues say at all.

    The caring side of Kelvin MacKenzie – don’t make me laugh – the only person Kelvin cares for is himself

    Bit confused of the chap. It’s true there are some cities with large immigrant populations in the North, but the vast majority of the teat suckers appear to reside in the already overcrowded South East.

    Your false assumption is that I am a northerner. It is in everyone s interest that London doesnt become an over-crowded cess-pit of seething humanity. The infrastructure in London is creaking as it is.

    One error. It’s not that the rest of the country ‘can’t or won’t create the wealth to look after themselves’, it is that they are deliberately prevented from doing so by the lefty quango-ista entitlement seeking bastards who need them as the ‘client state’. A combination of massive over-taxation, over-regulation, dependence creation and Balkanisation makes it impossible for anywhere else to create any wealth. Plus all parties and their satraps in the state bureaucracy and their fellow travellers in the banks (cheered on by the most corrupt bank of all – the Bank of England) are evry keen to retain the stream of rents and entitlements whilst they con us with home-owner-ism.

    George doesn’t really want to take your money. He’s just been backed into a corner by inheriting an almighty crock of economic shit from his predecessors. Anybody who thinks it’ll be sorted out in anything less than a decade has not been paying attention.

    Greychatter says:

    It took Gordon Brown, Ed Balls and Ed Milliband 13 years to cock-up our economy – George is probably still finding traps and skeletons in the cupboard left by Gordon.
    All these Labour people have done very nicely for themselves and left the George Osborne to sort out the mess.
    This has always happened when Labour has run the economy into the ground. Labour had four good years using Ken Clark’s figures, and then Gordon went mad.
    It will take more than 2 years to get back to anything like where Ken Clark left the economy.
    Voters and Politicians have very short selective memories.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
