      Liam Byrne was not joking when he wrote “Dear Chief Secretary, I’m afraid to tell you there’s no money left. Kind regards – and good luck! Liam”

      Unfortunately, all the beneficiaries of the Great Government Gravy Train don’t see the party is over and the good times need to be paid for.

      Are all old Etonians morons? says:

      If labour had been in government and spent more stimulating the economy the welfare bill would be less because more people would be in work. Simple arithmetic.

      The Tory moron on The Daily Politics today didn’t have the wit to work this out.

      Or, more likely, he did but is being forced to push the party line and cover for an incompetent chancellor and his lib dumb minion.

      Why the fcuk can’t one of the Eton morons in the cabinet steal this idea from labour.

          We need relatively high growth to reduce deficit. Growth can be achieved by borrowing more and investing as well as cutting and investing.

          Problem in UK is both this government and the last one, borrowed to consume. In other worlds one could borrow £200,000 to buy a house or go on a holiday, UK chose to go on a holiday.

          This problem UK is can be sold by a government that is on the right or left but it cannot be solved by a government that is sitting on the fence.

          Take an e.g. both mansion tax and cutting benefits would have increase the money government can use for investment or to cut debt. But as we coalition government it cannot do it. So Osborne and Alexander went for Enron accounting to say they are reducing deficit.

        In desperation for being PM, Cameron made the biggest mistake. Cameron went and formed a government with LD. Cameron could have called an election or ran a minority administration but he didn’t because he though LD is stupid.

        To enjoy trapping of power LD were happy with what ever Cameron and Osborne came with until they realised they will lose their seats in the next general election.

        Only reason we still have this government is because both sides are afraid that they will lose power and MPs if they call a general election now.

        As time nears and nears May 2015 both Conservatives and LD will fight more and more openly. Also loads of LD MPs will try to jump ship to Labour if Labour would accept them.

        As long as we end up having this coalition government, things will become worse and worse.

          Saddest thing is Starbucks is now negotiating to pay £10m a year, tax for almost all others is not negotiation or charity payment, they pey it because they are small and they haven’t got a choice.

      i thought it was quite sad

      the message was clear: the rich are to blame for the problems created by the federal reserve and the US government and the solution is more immigrants.

      A decade or two ago the simpsons wouldn’t put this out since it’s obviously a very extreme left-wing argument, now it has become almost standard as western nations are eaten from inside as the demographic timebomb ethnically cleanses us or as New Labour put it “rubs our noses in it”.

      I think it’s over for us but there will be other civilisations in the future – look at India – no immigration allowed, no multi-culturalism, if you don’t work you don’t eat, reverence for history and traditions – they have problems but will be great one day.

          @ Nigel Mirage: When ‘Any Questions?’ was recorded in Leyton in 2007 every question from the floor was from a Labour stooge. Whether the Beeb realised this, or insists on it, I don’t know. The panel, btw, was Tony Benn, Liz Forgan, and AC Grayling, all hard-hitting disturbers of the Labour status quo, I’m sure. Googling to find the 4th panellist, I find that the soon-to-be disgraced local Labour Councillor Miranda Grell claimed to have set up the event.

      Not a word about them common purpose twats then on QT save that lionel barber mentioned the word ‘leadership’ then Frankie fraud (A common purpose graduate) mentioned it.

      Problem is that so many of the problems faced by the public in all walks of life especially the creeping control by the state are as a result of the Common Purpose ‘placemen & women’ who having done those ‘leadership courses have fucked up this country. CP – is known to have originating tenticles from Communism / Marxism from the years of Lenin and Stalins – ‘leadership’.

      Take the Audit Commission for example – do a googgle check on some of the language used [published on the net] of the Regional Commissioners [try the south coast portsmouth to bournemouth] and the multiple and repetitive references to ‘leadership’, ‘leadership’, ‘leadership’ – it’s all bunkum and codswallop ‘mantras’.

    Why are those arse holes in Parliament so greedy? What will they give up BEACUSE OF THE DOWNTURN? Especially that greedy speaker and his essex girl wife.

    You do know that you are really hated so much cos you are so feckin greedy bastards. Just why should you get your feckin mortgages paid for, why?

    You are loathed and despised so much. Why isn’t there a budget that they have to stick to, to run Parliament like those budgets we all have to stick to?

    You are beneath contempt. You just live off the state, like benefit claimants do. You have never ever had to EARN revenue in your lives. That c u n t Brown even gets paid and doesn’t even have to turn up, What a feckin life you all have at our, the taxpayers expense. You have no right to lecture other people at all because of your GREED.

    Is the “fiscal cliff” real or just another hoax? The answer is that the fiscal cliff is real, but it is a result, not a cause. The hoax is the way the fiscal cliff is being used.

    Dr Paul C Roberts says:

    The fiscal cliff is the result of the inability to close the federal budget deficit. The budget deficit cannot be closed because large numbers of US middle class jobs and the GDP and tax base associated with them have been moved offshore, thus reducing federal revenues. The fiscal cliff cannot be closed because of the unfunded liabilities of eleven years of US-initiated wars against a half dozen Muslim countries–wars that have benefitted only the profits of the military/security complex and the territorial ambitions of Israel. The budget deficit cannot be closed, because economic policy is focused only on saving banks that wrongful financial deregulation allowed to speculate, to merge, and to become too big to fail, thus requiring public subsidies that vastly dwarf the totality of US welfare spending.

      Old dimbley introduced the prog mumbling on about discussing problems that the public want addressing … the prog then ignores the greater public (giving the impression that the public gets a voice – with a carefully chosen audience) and spins the prog by giving ‘air time’ to MP’s and a journo – who collectively all have an agenda to back the political circus that they all live and thrive in.

      And not one political mongrel across the board – when the starbucks issue reared its ugle head dared to mention the growing ‘public controversy’ over Hodge the dodge and her stemcorp … monies – they’re (politicals and journo) all certainly in it together – attempting to fool the public – THEY FAILED.

          When you realise that “Question Time” is an hour long Party Political Broadcast for the Labour Party and that the ” Representative Audience” is screened for thei political views before being allowed into the studio(kast week some woman let the cat out of the bag that she had been asked for her political views when attending before being let into the studio….nobody picked up on it on the panel not even Patrick McLoughlin)you’ll find that it all becomes clear……the BBC News and Current Affairs is far from impartial and at times is so blatantly Labour propaganda as to be laughable….and still the BBC tells with a straight face that it is totally impartial…..

    I Thought the blog [title] was going to be about that cretin Conor Burns who it appears is in some difficulty over his friendship with failed tory PCC candidate Nick King and of what seems to have been a number of hidden ccj’s and company losses – which came into the public domain in the run up to the PCC election in Dorset. Now where did Burns turn to when the concealed ccj’s were outed? why CCHQ and not the proper authority?

    Very disappointed Max Clifford has been called in for questioning, threatening his otherwise blemish free career.
    Rumour has it he was about to handle one of the Eagle brothers, who hoped to take over the femme fatale mantle in the HoC following the recent depature of Louise Mensch to pastures new.
    I’m gutted, but then celebrity’s loss will hopefully be politics’ gain.
