Labour Won’t Pledge to Repeal ‘Bedroom Tax’

Well this is hardly going to help improve Baldamort’s status as a Labour pariah in lefty circles. After all his party’s truth-stretching moralising, the Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary has refused to commit to repealing the spare room subsidy:

“We are not going to make promises we can’t keep. I believe very strongly that this is a tax that will cost more than it saves, but I know I have to prove that beyond reasonable doubt and that is the research that I am doing now to gather evidence from across the country. We hear of houses lying empty because people can’t afford the tax that would hit them if they moved in, so obviously it does not make sense. We have to work through our position as fast as we can, but no one will forgive us for making promises we can’t keep.”

Still peddling the bedroom ‘tax’ lie, but not saying he would repeal it. So much for Owen Jones’ “People’s Assembly” against t’cuts: he can’t even win the argument in his own party…

    My own studies show that according to zero point energy theory, even after the banning of everything there will still remain a thingy that someone somehwere will say potentially offends Muslims.

    S P 4 B S says:

    When he says “this is a tax that will cost more than it saves”.

    Well, that would only be the case if the consequences weren’t thought through properly, it was half arsed and needed all sorts of exceptions, and was more aimed at making it look like something was done, than actually doing anything.

    Which clearly would never be the case.

    I think the real problem is that these are ultra lefties from a place where they still exist. And they hate t*ries, so someone more t*ry than the t*ries gets them into somewhat of a sensory overload.

    (and much as i hate to say anything approaching pleasant about Salm*nd, they’re not his lot and probably hate him too).

    A typical working person says:

    I have a 4 bed house with 2 bedrooms now vacant now that the sprogs have left. If I suddenly realise that I can no longer afford the mortgage because my earnings are less than what they used to be (e.g redundancy) is this then a bedroom tax?

    I will then have to try and sell my house and purchase something more affordable.

    All because as a working person with a mortgage I am entitled to FUCK ALL so why aren’t others also entitled to the same?

    After 10 years, I give you £90 every week.

    Has there been a reduction in the amount of money I give you, or are you paying an extra £10 per week in tax?

    Mr Helpful says:

    If your house has a cellar, you could convert the cellar into a dungeon. Then, stop paying your mortgage. Then, when people from the mortgage company come round to complain, you could invite them down to your ‘cellar’ to show them something very interesting (you could tell them their money’s down there), BUT it is of course a dungeon, and the mortgage people never see the light of day again.

    There you go, that’s the mortgage problem solved. Next, income. If you live in a terraced house, you could knock a small hole in the wall so that at night you could crawl through into your neighbour’s house and help yourself to any food and wine they keep in their kitchen, and nick the odd £20 from their wallet. You could use the same hole in the wall to feed a mains lead from one of their sockets through to your house, thus reducing your electricity bill to zero.

    The Labour Party Strategy says:

    We rely on the Tory Party to come into government after us; take the tough decisions and sort out the financial mess left by us whilst we have a period in opposition jumping on every popular bandwagon, criticising every attempt to sort out our mess whilst promising our supporters unachievable, unaffordable and unsustainable spending promises to fool them into voting for us again. When we return to government we always continue with the policies that the Tories introduced explaining to our gullibale voters that now is not the right time to reverse them

    They are the party of the rich millionaire offspring of left wing academics who live in the leafy suburbs of Primrose Hill and who have never done a decent days work in their lives leaving their private school straight to university at Oxford or Cambridge followed on graduation by a researchers job for the unions or Labour Party or working for the BBC/Guardian as an intern before becoming a Labour MP and thence to shadow cabinet..and power. It’s been the same for the past 30 odd years and the actual “workers” still fall for all the guff about the Labour Party being on the side of the workers…total mugs. The shadow Cabinet are richer than the so called posh Tory Boys

    However you view the oil companies, why were there ‘raids on their offices by the EU’ – what did that mean? Why did the media make no attempt to explain ‘raids’ on business premises.

    Then there are the dawn raids to ‘arrest’ aged suspects.

    Who gave the EU authority to ‘raid’ and Hodge and her committee to conduct Stasi-like interrogations?

    Hawkins is over rated. His books were just popular science for the coffee table and were very much of the ‘big bang theory is fact and all other theories must not be discussed’ commie mentality. His theories are not exactly Einsteinian either. Hawkins Radiation might exist but conveniently can never be tested and is of no industrial benefit to anyone ever.

    Does anyone have any free Spurs tickets I could scrounge off them? Executive boxes only. Please send them to my wife’s massive mansion (where I live rent free), along with £17 of taxpayers money for my breakfast. Oh and please don’t point out what a massive hypocrite I am because my wife’s ill and it might upset her. Thanks.

    Labour can say or do anything they want; there are enough brain dead morons in the UK who will vote for them, no matter what !!! When I hear people say “my dad voted Labour, and my granddad voted Labour, so I will aswell”, my heart sinks………

    the statement may admit ‘we haven’t a clue….and therefore,just in case….we’d better wait and see’

    this may be a relatively honest admission

    there is such a raft of arbitrary inconsistent even conflicting rules in ‘benefits’ that one has to peel the onion in order to find which ones did work and to what extent

    onion peeling has its consequences

    Labour haven’t got a clue. They’ve got no principles and still can’t admit Gordon Brown was a disaster.

    Ed Miliband? What a plonka!

    Maybe banning suicide bombers would be a more, er, targeted policy. Why not suggest it?

    Agreed. The oilcos should just tell the Eu nosey buggers to piss off and stop trespassing on their property. The real reason that petrol prices are so high is the addition of 100% govt tax on the product. Oil trading middle men and speculators control the basic price of oil as most of it only costs pence per gallon to get out of the ground these days.

    Never trust a politican (whichever colour their rosette) says:

    The way to beat the Bedroom Tax isn’t to support a political party advocating its withdrawal or making populist noises in opposition. It’s to refuse payment and then collectively resist the attentions of bailiff scum when they come knocking.

    That’s how resistance to foreclosures and the like is being successfully resisted in countries like Spain, and that’s what needs to happen here.

    Labour hypocrite says:

    I challenge all in the Labour party to contact HMRC and ask them if they have any information on the so called bedroom tax. They will direct you towards your local housing benefit office or the DWP…..that’s because IT’S NOT A BEDROOM TAX you Labour party muppets !

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
