Read Guido’s Column in The Sun Today

Sun-April-7,-2013

Guido shares a page with the Prime Minister in today’s Sun. Dave makes the case for welfare reform, and in Guido’s column you can read all about:

  • Lynton Crosby’s effect on Osborne
  • Ed Balls and the bookie
  • Michael Meacher’s bedroom tax fears
  • Ed Miliband’s sauna
  • Where’s Chuka? Somewhere far cooler than “full of trash” London
  • Gorgeous George and his harem
  • Tony is still a “straight kinda guy”

Politics for the people, all for only 60p…

          Which is preceeded by Tony Blair’s law allowing people to be locked up indefinitely in a mental health unit without reference to a doctor, if he felt/the police felt that he was a danger to him – quite frankly, anyone that wanted to hurt him, would be by definition completely sane.

          Which is preceeded fake WMD and an illegal in Iraq and the death camps their.

            Anyway, the scousers have been leaving in droves over the last few years. Boscombe, sometimes known as Boscum, is also known as Boscumski. Hence the scousers leaving.

      Ground-rents are a still more proper subject of taxation than the rent of houses. A tax upon ground-rents would not raise the rents of houses. It would fall altogether upon the owner of the ground-rent, who acts always as a monopolist, and exacts the greatest rent which can be got for the use of his ground. More or less can be got for it according as the competitors happen to be richer or poorer, or can afford to gratify their fancy for a particular spot of ground at a greater or smaller expense. In every country the greatest number of rich competitors is in the capital, and it is there accordingly that the highest ground-rents are always to be found. As the wealth of those competitors would in no respect be increased by a tax upon ground-rents, they would not probably be disposed to pay more for the use of the ground. Whether the tax was to be advanced by the inhabitant, or by the owner of the ground, would be of little importance. The more the inhabitant was obliged to pay for the tax, the less he would incline to pay for the ground; so that the final payment of the tax would fall altogether upon the owner of the ground-rent.

      The Grand National, the football pools, lottery tickets– aside from the fact that the likes of the Mick Philpotts of this world probably wager on them all too much, they all have this in common: Nobody’s guaranteed a payout of any size, let alone the jackpot, just in virtue of “contributing” to the pot of cash used for that purpose. Insurance is another such similarly-arranged plan, in the sense of no guarantees– and believe me, there’s many a person that has sought to collect by “forcing the issue,” you may wish to term it, on the supposition that “I’ve paid in so much, I ought to see something for it.” When you come right down to it, this next concept isn’t hard to grasp– benefits, up to and including Old Age Pension, are a form of social insurance, and ones in which the adjusters and the insureds are motivated perversely to distribute and to collect. To the degree you want to classify OAP as your Dad and Mum’s Christmas Club, i.e., a guaranteed benefit for having made all the requisite contributions, all well and fine, but then take it out of the realm of insurance, and call it what it is: an enforced saving that protects you against yourself and possible improvident choices for the use of that money. To the degree that you do not continually move the goalposts just to make benefits impossible for ANY to collect and whilst you are doing that you are just keeping on raising the “premiums” (i.e., taxes) which in theory fund them, never to see any payout– in other words, you maintain an elementary fairness in the system, in which true destitution is alleviated, by the use of bright-line rules in the funding and disbursal of the money– a cynicism of “I’ll get mine, Jack” can hopefully be avoided by having it seen to be something other than a game to be played for maximum benefit. A moral component, similar to that which the Hodge the Dodges of the world employ with regard to the “funding” end– a high dudgeon of “how dare you cheat!” used against the grifters gaming the system– can only help, but of course we are making moral judgements here, something the Left are uncomfortable with when it’s their ox gored. And the Right may need to strike a bargain in which tax advantages, in exchange for rates not being raised, are curtailed, for the Left to agree to a curtailment of sorts not just in the rate of growth but in the actual size of the benefit structure, the funds from such increase in revenue and decrease in spending to be applied to debt reduction. The only trouble with my proposal is that it makes sense but it requires a change in paradigm– but unfortunately when it comes time to use our brains, some of us humans would almost rather wish we never had any, because using ‘em makes our heads hurt. Somebody tell me if I’m missing something. End of today’s rant.

    The BBC are at it again. When Hattie Harpic spouted her lies about only getting out of the benefits system what you put in, the BBC just reported it. Where was the view from Owen Jones then BBC? You know Jones will be opposed to this.

    I’ve not heard one Tory view or one view from the wet left that the BBC ALWAYS use when a Tory makes a comment about welfare. All the BBC have done is simply report it in sombre tone.

    ATOS – the private contractor paid by the government to carry out work capability assessments of disabled people – has declared George Osborne is unable to carry out his duties as chancellor due to “severe disabling conditions such as not being able to count”.

    Mr Osborne recently defended parking his car in a disabled parking bay, explaining he is so severely handicapped by his inability to function as Chancellor of the Exchequer that he should himself be parked on disability benefits somewhere far away from the nation’s economy where he can’t do it any more harm.

    Some medical experts however, have disputed the results of the assessment. One influential doctor with long experience of assessing disabilities said:

    “Osborne’s not unfit for work. He’s just a git.”

    However, a spokesperson for ATOS denied accusations that they had failed to assess the chancellor adequately:

    “During the assessment, Mr Osborne was asked to touch his elbow with his finger. However, as soon as we discovered he was unable to find his elbow and kept touching his arse instead, we realised the chancellor is in a fact not a git, but just an incurably useless twat.”
