      Piss more taxpayer money away on junk says:

      God help us.

      Some dimwit fauxservative MP has mentioned the London Array and gormless Dave has chirped in ‘how proud he was’ regarding this massive white elephant, money drain.

      What he failed to mention was, each and every job created by this farcical scheme, is costing £1.77 million each in taxpayer subsidy, for every year of it’s operational life.

      Why aren’t Labour’s propoganda arm the BBC included in this discussion abour funding?

      BBC Labour receive £3.6bn from the Taxpayer [the Licence is a tax, not a licence - you have to pay it whether you watch BBC or not]

      Another BBC Labour spunkafest of money

      Plans are afoot to revive the BBC’s ailing soap opera EastEnders with a spectacular stunt, costing around £1million, involving a car chase, a flipped vehicle and a helicopter. The serial’s bully boy, Phil Mitchell, will be left fighting for his life, says my showbiz source, who advises: ‘The money might be better invested in new writers and a fresh cast.’

        The problem for Labour is that their leader has just destroyed one of their main ideological points.

        The class related issue of funding of political parties is an issue for Labour and it’s supporters. Also for us the public.

        That Labour themselves have been caught out not only having questions bought but entire MPs through the entire process from seat selection to installation in the HoC is serious.

        That Labour have killed any argument they may have about funding of any other party means that the public have lost a check / balance on this issue.

        Don’t support them at all, but the opposition shooting itself in the foot this way is not healthy for democracy. Not that much democracy it would appear existed in Labour’s parliamentary process.

        It is NOT a tax!
        It is another step towards cleaning up Labour’s love of ‘buying votes’.
        Idiot boy will be praying Tory backbenchers do not put amendments in the bill coming up next week, that would ensure any union links with Labour are well and truly severed.

        Allowing union members to decide whether or not they wish to donate to ANY political party.
        A cap on donations for an individual, a group or a business to £5k (call dick Ed’s bluff)
        Open primaries at ALL elections.
        A limit on how much a sitting MP can earn outside politics, including those doing stuff now.

        If the Tories play this right, they could kill off the rancid Labour party & the power of the union bosses, who’s lust for (free/taxpayers) money, hatred of the wealth creators, and utter failure whenever in government is bad for the public/society’s well being.

        Any political donation, from any source should be VOLUNTARY and registered in the public domain.

        As far as I can tell ALL Tory donations are voluntary, not nicked from someone’s pay at source……Like a tax!!!
