      Benny Fitz-Clements says:

      There is no official figure for exactly how many “strivers” are on benefits. But what is clear is that their numbers increased dramatically under the previous Government: from 700,000 when Labour took office in 1997 to 4.7 million on the equivalent entitlements in 2010, rising to between 6 and 7 million people, once housing benefit and council tax benefit are included. That is an eight to tenfold increase in a period that was, for much of it, one of unprecedented prosperity.

          Many years ago I wrote an email to one of the Liebore ministerial ask a minster thingies, I suggested that if they wanted folks with health problems to go back work that badly, they could indemnify companies if an accident occured due to the person with the health problems illness collapsing or other such problem, I received no reply. It is wonderful when you are going through esculating increasing doses of medication, works for 11/2 months then away we go again, all drugs have side effects (as no doubt Guido and Gideon probably know) and people do not always understand.

        Reality says:

        1997 through 2010 was a time of unprecedented wealth illusion.

        Prosperity was being eroded as debt was being accumulated: Both public and private.

        The council tax benefit (spin: bedroom tax) was put in place by Labour to paper the crack of reducing central funding to Local Authorities. This has distorted peoples expectations of local authority services, and budgeting expectations of local authorities.

        The real question is how many more of these distortions exist ?

        Well, one other is housing benefit (spin: Council tax increases): If this is going to working families to help the pay rent / mortgage then you have another. The crack being covered here is the public purse is paying for housing market inflation in order to prevent prices from correcting.

        What needs to be hammered home is that these Labour manipulations of the economy to prevent normal pricing actions were originally done to benefit Labour controlled councils to the detriment of Conservative (Labour councils gained more), and the actions have not only contributed massively to national debt but also have distorted completely the housing market.

        The inflation in house prices very much helped create the wealth effect. People do not equate increased mortgage debt with house price rise, the media were only really promoting the price rise side of the picture.

        The net effect is that this generation cannot afford to house itself without government assistance even if it has a job, and wages cannot plug the gap without introducing massive inflation.

        The only quick fix for this is fixing the benefit system so that it is no longer distorting these markets and raise interest rates to ensure that the corrections in the economy happen quickly.

        This will be a painful reset, but is the only option: The government who does it will likely not be electable for at least 3 generations though.

        The socialist model put in place could be continued, but the state cannot continue with this fiscal model indefinitely and Russia shows what happens when it eventually collapses.

      A very good home –
      No one to take you
      For that very long run –
      But otherwise
      ‘A very good home’.
      They fed you Pal and Chum
      But not that lovely long run,
      Until, mad with energy and boredom
      You escaped – and ran and ran and ran
      Under a car.
      Today they will cry for you –
      Tomorrow they will buy another dog.

    You can tell your readers that Dave’s EU speech has not made a blind bit of difference to me. It’s still UKIP for me unless Dave is replaced with a Conservative and not a whet Liberal.

    Any one who votes Lib/Lab/Con is conspiring with them and endorses them to cede more of our Parliaments powers to the EU. And, further more, now being in possession of the full facts, being that the EU is on the road to the creation of a permanent United States of Europe dominated by Germany(money talks),is in total agreement with them to this end.

    So vote LibLabCon for a United States of Europe.

    When will you realise that it is YOUR VOTE them empowers them to create a United States of Europe. Yes you!

    Their power comes from your vote.

        Galloway is totally bent.

        Good question, but when he speaks about middle east there are only two questions worth asking him:

        i) What were your real motivations for lobbying the UN to set up oil for food, and why did you profit from this ?

        ii) Why did you refuse to testify at the Duelfer hearings.

        Until those are convincingly covered his words are weasel.

      Removing opposition by depriving funding is a favored trick of many tyrannical regimes to suppress dissent. Communists did this as well:


      Unintended consequence of state funding for political parties being corrected to prevent far right funding. If the state is going to fund parties it’s either all in or it isn’t democracy.

        Blowing Whistles says:

        During the reign of terror – the Labour party – controlled the funding for FTAC who acted in cahoots with SO19 officers. Thus any dissent (Calling them for instance: Commie Marxists etc) fired at the Labour party was closed down by those totally dependent upon their ‘funding’ to do the dirty work ‘at arms length’ on the dissenters.

        FTAC – has been closed down – but that does not mean that the coalition haven’t got their own at arms length goons who will do similar.

I’d like to follow you around for a few days and write about what happens, and maybe sell the story beyond my little school paper.

    “The UN should aim to drastically reduce the numbers of people living in extreme poverty worldwide by allowing richer nations to bomb them with unmanned drones more easily, David Cameron said at the close of a UN conference called to set out the world’s next development goals.

    Mr Cameron also said the primary aim of the new UN goals should be to provide aid and assistance to governments of impoverished nations so they will be able to kill off their poorest citizens much more efficiently and quickly than they can at present.

    The prime minister stressed that – while eradication of world poverty was possible within our generation – it would require much more responsible killing of poor people by the richest countries of the world, including greater transparency of collateral damage to civilians.

    To illustrate Britain’s commitment in the fight against extreme poverty, Mr Cameron announced a string of measures to help alleviate poverty in some of the most impoverished countries in North Africa – measures which include bombing their villages from the sky with unmanned drones and selling their governments even more sophisticated arms to kill them with.”

        Mind you there’s a bloke in the US who is 100 fold worse – I decline to name him save Kenn – the f-wit lost in his bubble of laws of 1000 years ago – which mean diddly squat to people today.

    Something the BBC are definitely not reporting about Algeria which is interesting:


    Note the loss of trade to EU here on the other infrastructure projects as well…

    Serious Note To Guido says:

    Owen Jones would do well to read Orwell’s NewSpeak addendum as most of what Jones writes is fiction.

    However, Owell’s 1946 essay: ‘Politics and the English Language’ is much better to throw at him:

      Alastair Campbell Murderer says:


      I deeply regret saying (many years ago) the words, “Could I test-drive the Ford Granada you’ve got on the forecourt?”

      Almost as much as I regret saying, later, “OK, I’ll buy it.”

        By your words shall ye be revealed. Thanks for clarifying that.

        The self-reference in my comment might be regarded by some as integrity. Not for me to say of course.

          SC – I am not alone then.

          Just tone done your effing high and mighty 5hit & Latin and you might endear yourself to others.

          What says you about lawyers and the taxation of their bills / costs / in court etc – I for one know that they are running a racket where they are desperately seeking favours from their predecessors who have been uplifted into higher realms?


          • I have no wish to endear myself to others. I am not an ego nutjob, nor a politician, nor obsessive about anything. I don’t give a monkeys about lawyers’ fees despite having paid dearly for them in the past. It is not my worry any more.

            Latin should be kept alive and I use it where appropriate and sometimes make a joke about it as it may encourage some to learn or indeed re-learn.

            That is not the sign of a closed mind but an open one. You are attempting to censor me. That is the sign of a closed mind, not an open one. Take your blinkers off, man!

    Uncommon Knowledge says:

    “Since the dawn of history the Negro has owned the continent of Africa — rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet and yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light.

    His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled.

    A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour.

    In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud.

    With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.”

        Yes, for all Darwin’s intelligence and humanity, this is the casual, unthinking bigotry of the 19th century. He should have heard of the the large (though now deserted and ruined) city of Great Zimbabwe, first reported by Europeans in the 16th century; there are many other smaller stone-built towns of the same type. However, the magnificent Benin bronzes were not known until 1897, when a punitive British military expedition burned Benin city, bringing the kingdom of Benin to an end, and looted the works of art, most of which ended up in the British Museum.

      I fully intend to start a campaign to bring back the page 7 fella.

      And now for something completely different… here is a scan of a snippet purported to originate from The Guardian newspaper. The date bandied about is the 26th June 1997 but I can not confirm that absolutely.

      Apparently the writer of that letter has a 3 inch thick solid steel front door! I wonder why? What treasures and fruits lay beyond it…

        Any Adult who forces / coerses a child into having sex (does a child of 9 years old generally know anything about sex other than nothing) especially a parent is abusing that child.

        Tatchell and his legions of abusers are making up a feeble excuse to do what is in his and their mindset.

        Do male dogs actively set out to bugger one another – no they don’t Male Dogs sniff out their femal counterparts.

        Tatchell and his militant political homosexuals and all homosexuals need to work out that back in the 60’s and 70’s when homo acts were illegal / criminal – that many criminals (of that time) were using homosexuality to blackmail many people – for many reasons. It seems that the MSM and the political classes do not want to have an open public discussion about the issues underlying the homomafias – dirtier games of yesteryears – but the public are having the discussions – and the public are not going to be brow beaten by those who have hidden agendas / have had hidden agendas.

        e.g. Lord Browne Ex Ceo of BP – are there questions to be asked of if he was swayed in directions because of his ‘secrets’? [This is where the criminality comes in]

      We have the dead tree press – and we have the “dead wood” of political machinations still hanging around from the reign of terror.

      Best – get rid of the “dead wood politicals” – from the labour tory and lib dem parties – before we can get any sense or truth out of any of them.
