          If Gordon had been even half financially literate we would not be in the mess we are in now. I mean how did he calculate that the 110% mortgages he waved through without any thought were financially sound? And that was definitely not the fault of the USA.

          Becks, Cameron is reading from a crib sheet given to him by his speech writers and advisers, if he reads it as written and he has only glanced moments before it is the crib sheet writers fault. Gordy was not an economist so he relied on his writers and advisers, and add to that his sight problems, Dave boy as far as I know hasn’t got a sight problem errors should have been picked up.

    when I heard about the shootings on Utoya I felt a surge of excitement which turned to disappointment as I learned only 77 members of the enemy had been ‘re-educated’. Only a couple of minutes more and we could have killed who knows how many potential Stalins, Hitlers, Thatchers etc?

      university graduates know next to nothing when they leave. 3 years of getting drunk and going to 10 hours of lectures a week breeds a sense of entitlement. they need to understand that having been on the pop for 3 years doesn’t entitle you to a good job. someone will employ you if you can give them some value back. if you can’t find anyone to employ you then you should do something else. poncing off the taxpayer until your perfect non-job arrives shouldn’t be an option. if you can’t find a job you want, go shelf stacking and if you can’t even do that then your 3 years higher education really was a waste.

        I think her sense of entitlement is an outrage, who the hell does she think she is? I took a series of badly paid non jobs before I found one where the prospects were good and rose up the ladder.I didn’t sit back on welfare and wait for the perfect job for me. I think the UK welfare system is a joke and is encouraging every sponger imaginable to come here. The system needs to be set back to zero and started again.

          I am a graduate and I did everything from cleaning to farm work and factories. Now I am in a comfortable job that I enjoy. Dole wasn’t considered an option back then, and I’m only 42. A series of shit jobs was
          all part of life. I know what it means to work a shit job and know that with a bit of application I don’t have to do them.

          Thing is about this geology graduate woman who went to court after being asked to get off her arse for a few hours a week, who is going to employ her now? You would be mad to take on someone who would have you in court at the drop of a dole application form! imagine what it’d be like working with her. won’t muck in and clean up because it’s below her, won’t come to work when there’s a dusting of snow, wants a new desk and computer ‘health and safety’.

          Higher education was expanded in the late 80s and 90s partly as a means to massage the mass unemployment figures, and partly under the delusion that sh1tty service economy jobs needed highly qualified personal to basically do stuff people with O and A levels could do.

      Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

      The paucity of her argument is exposed when she compares the system to slavery. I don’t remember her being kidnapped in the coastal areas of West Africa, shipped to the Americas chained up and lying in her own waste and then picking cotton 12 hours a day. All this could then be followed up by being the master’s play thing in the evening.

      All she has done is make sure she is virtually unemployable. Who with any sense will take on an employee who resorts to the Human Rights act as soon as she is asked to do something she doesn’t like.

          Agreed: And that article does not mention that the UK does not have the right to ban imports of tainted EU products either.

          In the absence of real economic sanction whatever happens over there, the current system is still unworkable.

          It is good what Paterson has done, but even if they do get things cleaned up, there is zero guarantee that this will not happen again in the future and the simple message is that any food imports from the EU can simply not be trusted and should be tested before introduction into local food chain.

          The switching in of Ch!nese products mentioned is somewhat worrying. Those products are banned as they contain contaminants which are certainly not fit for human consumption.

          Google Ch!na food scandals for more details. Ch!nese Garl!c is currently the biggest contraband causing issue.

    I went to a secondary modern school, and doesn’t it show. It gave me the skill set I needed to be leader of the labour party, cowardice, hypocrisy, negativity, and no morals. My ambition is to create a one nation with that same skill set.

      My understanding of the situation is that beef products have been contaminated by both horse and pork meat in more or less equal amounts .

      Because English people are squeamish about eating horse the Press lead on this . The pork mix from a health point of view is more serious .

      Although horse has never been on the Uk menu it is generally regarded as a cheap lean and nutritious meal.

    Operation Crossbow says:

    Of course all those well off lefties who are championing the mansion tax forget that it will require all homes to be re-valued (thousands of more jobs for the Guardian to advertise) and hence we will all pay more council tax.

    Then the threshold will come down from 2 million, there is no way that politicians especially the socialists will be able to resist, of course those in the north (Labour heartlands) won’t be so affected by this.

    Not ONE BBC commentator has actually pointed out that as you bring the threshold down from 2 million you will start to catch more and more middle class families.

    At the moment the red herring of a mansion tax will raise 1.7 billion, we’re BORROWING 125 BILLION a year.

    Only massive rises in taxes for the majority will close that gap unless we cut public spending, which none of the main parties want to do.

    Even if you grew the economy at 5% it would still take years to close that gap and in the meantime the interest we pay on the national debt (which we will never pay down) keeps rising, what is it now about 40 billion a year?

    It’s fucking madness.
