      The simpleton could not join the dots, just as her fellow Labour member was whinging about not making the economy carbon free by 2030. With idiots like these, who do not understand that for every action there is a consequence, we are eternally f**ked.

        She did, didn`t she? She certainly held the cheque aloft and, turkey style, thrust her scrawny neck forward in a headbanger manner and one assumes it was paid.

          You can’t send payments to HMRC unless they have issued a demand for payment.
          It was a stunt designed to make her look “good” & the viewers believe she was really going to put in the post.

    Ed Miliband says:

    Labour have reverted to finding individual cases. I suppose that happens when they have no policies.
    Labour are liars.

    “We will look at any individual case” Bed room tax.


    The word Cameron does not understand. Everyone that has their life changed by these step change decisions will have a family and friends. Everyone will see the injustice of these issues. It reflects on his future.

    There are two types of policy: Change everyone/change all new situations. The former is appropriate to small percentage changes and the later to step changes.

    The obvious way is to always introduce a step change policy in new situations only. Any change would trigger the new restriction.

    If the problem is a major increase in housing benefit, it either means the rents have increased significantly or the numbers have gone up. The first implies that these people are being attacked for something outside their control. Have the actual rents for these specific long term residents gone up, or is it only the new agreed rents? Why punish the wrong ones. However, if the number have significantly gone up, then there must be a significant turnover in the system. So changing the rules for new situations only, would be adequate.

    My experience is there is a turnover. I also think the costs of refurbishing these long term rentals to the new standards will further increase the rents. Look at the rule changes on renting to see why the benefits have been rising for new housing situations.

    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    Cameron actually managed to say today his Government puts disabled people first .

    What a stupid thing to say and do .

    If you want to help the disabled then you first of all have to get the abled bodied people in productive work in an expanding economy .

    Only if you sort this will you be able to help the disabled.

    You cannot go on indefinitely giving them money no one earns.

    How he got a first from Oxford is really one of life’s great mysteries.

    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    Cameron is obviously following my posts because he has changed his mind since lunchtime.

    He says now the period of fiscal consolidation is being extended which is more or less what President Hollande was saying in French . His excuse though is that he is a Socialist.

    The point here in the UK is that even Mr Cameron’s altered position will have no beneficial effect whatsoever : all Mr Cameron is going to do is extend the period of sluggishness in the economy.

    He would have been a better off just quoting an article in the New Statesman no one has ever read.

    That is what I think anyway.
