    How dare a Tory government have such high-spending, socialist ideas.

    Cameron is a state-f**ker.

      The Tories are spending more than Gordon Brown did. Only then it wasn’t called austerity – it was called prudence.

        Why don't you stop it then! says:

        Benefit fraudsters cheated Labour’s flagship tax credits system of £10billion, Iain Duncan Smith claimed last night.

        The Work and Pensions Secretary said the payments, intended to support those on low incomes, were wide open to abuse, with few checks and balances.

        In a scathing interview, he said the scheme – administered by the Treasury, not his own department – was a ‘sorry story of dependency, wasted taxpayers’ money and fraud’.

        Tax credits were introduced by Gordon Brown to top up the incomes of low-income families particularly those with children, allowing them to claim up to £10,000 a year in tax credit.

          Oooh look over there. The Tories are messing up so we shall find something to blame Labour for. Yes, the money was wasted. We all know that, the job of the government is to stop wasting the money, recover all the mis-spent money it can and to start running the nation’s finances properly. They are still wasting vast sums, not least on overseas ‘aid’ and spending money we do not have on high salaried bullshitters and biscuits.

          • Anonymous says:

            If it is wasting money it should be stopped. It took IDS 2.5 years to even even realise it, even though lots of people know about it years and years ago.

            Universal credits is the next disaster to happen, massive government IT schemes have never worked. It only ends up giving money to Indian IT workers.

            Simple and cheapest way to resolve this is to increase personal tax allowance and having allowance set single, couple and kids. It will save billions and billions wasted on administration, IT systems, over payments, fraud, etc. It will also encourage people to work.

          • The Public says:

            Tax threshold at £20K should do it. Then there would be no reason for anyone working to stick their hands in the pockets of their fellow tax payers for anything.

          • Anonymous says:

            Personal tax allowance; single person £10,000, couple £20,000 kids £5,000 (max allowance for 2 kids). Additional allowance people living in expensive parts of the country like London. No benefits unless someone is severely disable that they cannot work. For disable who can work increase personal tax allowance to £15,000.

          • Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

            Cameron is a weapons grade tool. His only redeeming feature is that he is not as much of a cnut as Brown.

        • 95
          Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

          Raising tax thresholds to eliminate tax credits and the attendent fraud and encourage people to work is far too simple for our MPs to understand. Would probably also eliminate the need for about 10000 jobs at HMRC.

          Lets take the whole tax simplification thing further and just have three taxes, income, corporation and VAT. Everyone pays – no exeptions. If you earn or make a profit in the UK then you pay.

            Labour are different from either the Lib-Dim’s and so called conservatives how exactly? They are all lying crooks looking to rob the public, to pay for their shite green schemes and pathetic ‘touchy feely’ ideas. Ffs, Cameron hates real tories with a passion, that’s why he’s destroying the Conservative party as a credible option.

        Of course, if the Tories replace Dave with a proper Conservative I would support them, but at the moment we have nothing to lose.

      Georgy Porgy Pudding and Pie says:

      It’s interesting to note the comment coming from gun owning American’s who are -rightly in my view – upset at O’Barmy’s threat to take their weapons off them. They’re coming to the boil a lot quicker than their UK counterparts. Something to do perhaps, with them having a written constitution rather than the movable feast of bullsh*t fed to the British public by their ‘betters’.

      • 42
        The Public says:

        No it isn’t. It is not in the least bit interesting. I find all the comments from American gun nuts on here distinctly tedious, especially the ones who come on here pretending to be British.

          kiddiethink watch says:

          We’ll tell you what to think and what to do, only us adults in government are allowed guns, now fuck off and do our bidding, serf.

          • The Public says:

            Yours is exactly the kind of crap comment I was talking about. Loads of people who have a reasonable purpose for having them own and use guns in this country. Are you not aware of that? I assume not. My brother in law acquired a new shotgun only the other day.

            But that doesn’t stop people believing the shit they read and then making ludicrous extrapolations and statements based on their ignorance. I say, the whole American discussion abut guns is a tedious distraction from more interesting things.

          • Just asking ? says:

            “Public”…..There is a world of difference between people(farmers etc)being allowed to hold shotguns and the public to have the right to hold powerful handguns and semi-automatic rifles plus as much ammunition as they can purchase at Wal-Mart.

            Why would a primary school teacher or any other member of the public need several hand guns and/or semi-automatic rifles especially in the sort of “sleepy hollow” locality that the recent school shooting took place in ?

            The answer is not to arm teachers etc but to ban hand guns from being owned by the general public . Finally what is a “reasonable purpose” exactly ??

          • The Public says:

            My point exactly. There us no such excuse. The American gun nuts are just that. Gun nuts. And bores with it. They think that no-one has guns in the UK, even farmers. They then go on to make all sorts of stupid comments based on that ignorance.

            Brits can’t keep handguns for self defence, like most Europeans can!

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
