      A lot of giggling and self regard in that video…..

        Silly boy says:

        “Jones” asks the teacher
        “Which country do we look to who are our example in resolve the ‘financial problem’ ”
        Now Jones don’t be your rent a gob act just answer the question


        • 47
          We put up with Jones says:

          “Jones” teacher asking says
          “Which do you think caused the economic crises during Brown’s premiership”
          “A excessive lending by banks.
          B housing bubble.
          C over borrowing by government
          D overspending by government
          E over borrowing by private individuals
          F Borrowers repaying their debts
          G Financial regulators …..”

          Jones interrupting “George Osbourne failing to get the economy expanding at 3% plus”

          “And how was that”
          “Because he did not borrow enough to keep…”

          “And how should he pay it back”
          “From this invested money paying back in higher tax receipts”

          “How would you have invested differently and how much more”
          Jones is silent.
          “Jones speak up”

      Makes no sense that Sky should bother to have that gormless idiot Jones expressing his ignorant opinion. For that matter why did I bother to comment!

        The Script says:

        You can’t have Punch without Judy, Laurel without Hardy or Harry without Owen.

        Owen Jones says:

        “[T]hat gormless idiot Jones expressing his ignorant opinion.”
        It’s a fair cop, copper. I’m nicked.

        “For that matter why did I bother to comment!”
        Maybe it’s because you’re a Londoner?

        ‘Night all.

    Owen Jones says:

    The only thing super prisons bring is super costs. Any decent country would be shutting jail’s not fucking opening super ones. We are fucked

      And doing what with the inmates? Shooting them?

        Anon says:

        There are quite a lot who could be deported and a fair number who should be in mental hospitals. Quite a few are serial petty offenders who are often homeless, self-medicators and basically unable to cope with modern life: often with few friends or family to support them when they get out. I have seen defendants up for very minor, almost victimless crimes against property pleading with, arguing with and then insulting magistrates in the hope if finding their way back inside prison for as long as possible.


        • 16
          Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

          That’s all very well…

          But the criminals are a lesser concern than the people they damage.


          • Anon says:

            If prison doesn’t deter, doesn’t rehabilitate and we actually find that people commit crimes that they would not otherwise have committed, in order to go there, there is something seriously wrong going on.


      • 19
        Nostradamus says:

        I’ve often thought that instead of building prisons, we could just dump all the paedos, rapists and assorted scumbags on the island of St Kilda.

        There are already derelict buildings there for them to shelter in so aside from a fortnightly helicopter drop of basic rations the cost to the taxpayer would be next to nothing compared to a real prison.
        The population would be kept down by the inevitable murder and cannibalism that would break out within a few days.

        Either that or we rent out a square mile of the Australian outback, build a giant wall around it and do much the same thing.

        It’s this sort of out-of-the-box thinking that May and Osborne are lacking in.

      Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

      Prison costs 40,000 per year
      Av crim causes 100,000 economic damage per year.

      Each crim locked away SAVES 60,000 per year.

    £12 billion?

    For that money you could buy the entire NHS a computer system that doesn’t work.

    Or twelve millennium domes.

    Or you could pay for a chief executive for every rotten borough in the country.

    Nigel Farage says:

    So eating a £9.70 burger (which I think is reasonable for a good one) is a story but wasting £100 million isn’t…………Owen Jones…Tosser !!!

      Time and Motion says:

      If having it delivered means the Chancellor can work more efficiently and not have to spend thirty minutes or more going to McDonalds, or sending a flunky to do that for him, the £9.70 burger is not a waste of money, especially if it actually tastes better.

    Feel the enrichment says:

    Two pairs of brothers are among five men who have been sentenced to life in jail for their part in a sadistic sex grooming ring which a*used children from Oxford.

    Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, were jailed for life with a minimum term of 17 years at the Old Bailey.

    The men, of Tawney Street, Oxford, were convicted of several counts of of r*pe, child prostitution and trafficking.

    Brothers Bassam and Mohammed Karrar were also sentenced to life in jail.

    Mohammed Karrar, 38, of Kames Close, Oxford, was sentenced to a minimum of 20 years after being found guilty of 18 offences including r*pe of a child, trafficking, using an instrument to procure a miscarriage and child prostitution.

    Bassam Karrar, 34, of Hundred Acres Close, Oxford will serve a minimum of 15 years after being found guilty of nine charges including r*pe of a child, child prostitution and trafficking.

    Kamar Jamil, 27, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 12 years.

    Jamil, formerly of Aldrich Road, Oxford, was found guilty of five counts of r*pe, two counts of conspiracy to r*pe and one count of arranging child prostitution

      The Grand Mufti of Mitcham says:

      Their families should be returned whence they came. There is no reason why we should continue to subsidise them if their breadwinners have now disappeared inside for many years. I’ll even chip in a tenner towards the (one-way) tickets.

      PS: I do hope this does not mean the prison will now have to build a surau (prayer room) and all the other paraphernalia for them. They broke OUR laws so we need not pander to theirs.

        How Many Times Have We Seen This? says:

        No need. I think you will find that the local imam will shortly be letting it be known that they are not in fact muslims.


      • 37
        Feel the enrichment says:

        You’re kidding, right? Prisons are already holiday camps for British crims, let alone muzee c-unts who get everything they ask for. They’ll have halal meals, a prayer room, in addition to all the perks regular crooks get – TV, video games, internet, radio, DVDs. Prisons are basically a retirement home for muslim terrorists and perverts.

        If it was up to me, they’d be put on a raft and dropped in the middle of the atlantic ocean with just a can of warm piss to survive on. I’ll donate the piss.

          You forget the state of the art gymnastic facilities – of a standard that no local authority in the country provides for local taxpayers, complete with a cadre of gym instructors and personal trainers. All free.

    I thought this was an old report, but sadly it is another case


    You have to feel sorry for people who are afflicted their culture


  16. 46

    A mountain of disasterous realities have not just caught up with Mr Osborne, they have nearly buried him. These two interviewees giggling and laughing did not make a very good impression. Sadly they didn‘t have any brilliant ideas that Mr Osborne could or should use to get UK CO LTD back on a safe course. Governments all over Europe end up subsidising global companies, who do not pay their employees a living wage, leaving the State to make up the difference. To top this these multi global players don’t pay any regular taxes on their profits, which are channeled out via mini multi global players until a loss is on their books. Easy to speak of the Culture of State Dependence, when generations know no other culture. Cancel it and go back to the Workhouse Culture? Deport all immigrants, another cry, be more jobs for the natural population. Jobs that they do not want to work in and that across Europe. These are not UK problems these are European problems too. The Health Services cannot cope with the aging populations, addictions to drugs or alcohol, smoking or eating problems. Costing their budgets billions. Save by giving every 80 year old a tablet to sleep on. No wonder these two guys laughed, crying you do alone.

    Who is the pompous tubby camp git who is debating Owen Jones?

    Owen Jones should be losing the debate but I am unable to take the tubby one seriously as he is making me want to vomit all over him?

    I think we if could get less people like Mr Tubbs to support right wing policies they might get further in the opinion polls.

    Is everyone rightwing a dick?

    Wow – a relatively mature political debate between two people who hold different views.

    We should have them stuffed.
