WATCH: Cameron Tribute to ‘Our Maggie’

A ten minute tribute to coincide with the launch of a Margaret Thatcher shop tomorrow. The Tories are quick to credit Craig Oliver with the idea…

          That is just Libertarian elite twaddle and is no different to Harriet Harman wanting to lower the age of consent to 12 years old for twister Libertarian philosophy.

          Civil partnerships are fot man and man, marriages are for man and woman and the family. A man marrying a man is no more libertarian than a man marrying his mother.

          • Mong Watch says:

            You guys are confusing liberalism with libetarianism.

            Liberalism is the thinking which gets underaged sex and is a twisted ideology when taken to conclusion.

            Cameron is a liberal social democrat, not a libertarian.

    Same parcel booking through interparcel and delivered by Hermes 3 day signed for and collected from my home or I can drop off at local shop £5.39 inc VAT

      Expat Geordie says:

      Royal Mail aren’t allow to compete – their prices are set for them, allowing the downstream access providers to undercut them. I suspect that some of the DSA providers are actually in receipt of hidden state subsidies – TNT Dutch, DHL German, etc. – but because they are good Europeans no-one is going to complain. For all of it’s faults, and there are many, I’d like to see Royal Mail stay in public ownership. They should be allowed to compete on a level playing field though.

      • 113
        Priced to fail says:

        The last price rise has all but killed their parcel business. They have literally priced themselves out of the parcel/small packet market which is odd as one of their selling points is the on line shopping business. No one uses them now except the odd private ebay seller who does not realise there are much cheaper alternatives.

        • 142
          Expat Geordie says:

          They have to provide a universal service, the DSA providers don’t. The DSA providers take your post, sort it if they have to (you pay extra for this), and dump it at a Royal Mail office for them to deliver. DSA providers are allowed to cherry pick the best areas though for their End to End service, where they deliver the post themselves.

          Currently TNT are doing E2E in London, with the possibility of covering Manchester shortly. These are traditionally the areas that provided the cross subsidy that allowed Royal Mail to provide a universal service. So Royal Mail is having it’s most profitable areas taken away from it on the orders of the EU.

          In the case provided with parcels, their parcel business was also cross subsidised by their London deliveries. I don’t usually believe in cross subsidy, or indeed any subsidy, but the Royal Mail is a strategic service, and as long as it breaks even overall whilst achieving its stated aim of a universal service then it should be left alone.

          I consider the destruction of Royal Mail on EU orders to be an even greater betrayal of our nation than the EU/EEC ordered destruction of our fishing fleet.

          • From Scotchland to Oggyland says:

            Except using say Hermes or Citylink I can post a parcel from Inverness to Penzance for a third of the price Royal Mail are now charging after their ridiculous rise in parcel prices. Anyone would think RM are trying to drive away business. Agree a Western Isle to Scilly is another thing.

            Small parcel under 1 kilo is £2.60 incl vat by Royal Mail

            90% of UK parcels are under 1 kilo. Just say’in like!

          • David Moribund says:

            90% of Royal Mail parcels are under 1kg which is not the same as UK parcels.

            Royal Mail have deliberately priced themselves out of larger parcels to target what will easily fit in postie’s bag.

            Fine but Vane Cable is promoting Royal Mail privatisation on the back of internet shopping where the parcels tend to be larger than small packets and with the recent new price structures posting anything above a small packet is simply too expensive using Royal mail. Plus other carriers will knock on your door and collect your parcel saving you a trip to the post office.

    David Cameron, egged on by the repulsive Francis Maude, spent the first seven years of his leadership trying to dis-associate himself, and the Conservative Party itself, from Mrs Thatcher.

    Now that her greatness, and Cameron’s feebleness, has become apparent even to the Tory “modernisers”, they are trying to crawl back under her mantle.

    It won’t delude anybody. UKIP will take enough Tory votes to finish off the Cameroons. A revitalised Conservative Party, in some form of alliance with UKIP, should arise from the debacle.

    That is effectively what Maggie accomplished, post-Heath, and it can surely be done again. If it isn’t, then we are all finished.

          Expat Geordie says:

          I remember seeing a reply on Lord Tebbit’s Telegraph blog that said that he, Keith Joseph and Maggie had hijacked the Conservative Party. It wasn’t meant in an insulting way, but I can see the respondents point. There was a lot of consensus politics at the time, although there was admittedly a lot of political differences between the main parties as well, and all of a sudden the Conservative Party was taken over by a working and lower middle class cabal.

          Our heroes took over the Conservative party and changed direction, creating a party that wanted to put Britain first and wasn’t interested in the managed decline of Britain. They were, effectively, not the Conservative Party but the Real Conservative Party, and in the process of making this party accessible to the traditional real working class.

          Because the country was in a hell of a mess when they came to power in 1979 the actions necessary were very painful to many people, and the nasty party image came out. Had they not acted as they did the damage done to the country would have been even worse, and possibly fatal, but let’s not let reality get in the way of a good socialist myth.

          But as our heroes grew old and died, the party came under the control of people who were not “Real Conservatives”, just “Conservatives” in the old, traditional mould. Because they didn’t want to be called nasty by socialists, they went in for consensus politics, so much so that you could tell the difference between any of them.

          So now we have a situation where the heir to the Real Conservative Party is Nigel Farage, the heir to the Real Labour Party is Nick Griffin, and as for Cameron, he isn’t the heir to Thatcher, nor the heir to Blair, but the heir to Heath. God h.elp us all, because no-one else will

          • Casual Observer 3 says:

            I would agree with that analysis.

            The ‘Nasty Party’ slur was engineered by the left through the papers at the time. It does not really add up when looked at as despite the hardships felt in mining communities etc. the reforms which were put through did improve the living standards of the majority as experienced in the 90s.

            Things started falling apart for the Cons under Major, who I think tried to continue in Thatchers footsteps, but sold out to Ma’astricht and left the party in a bitterly divided state that made it very easy for the left to pick off.

            The installation of Mar!n B’ell following the libel that saw Ham!lton step down in Tatton, and the fallout over Matr!x Church!ll were the death knells that guaranteed Bla!rs landslide in 97.

            Major himself moving on to Carl!sle Europe really initiated the pattern of rewards for treaty signing, most shamelessly demonstrated by Brown and his UN appointment following L!sbon and loss of office.

            Cameron has a vacant legacy, but then was never expected to do anything of real substance in the true Conservative sense.

            Minus the rumors relating to Heath’s p’edoph!lia, the Heath legacy is perfect fit Cameron.

          • Expat Geordie says:

            Thanks. One the subject of mining communities one thing has always had me puzzled by the left’s attitude. I grew up in a Durham pit village. The miners that I knew were hard men, generally good men, but they didn’t want their sons following them down the pit. They would do anything to stop that from happening, yet they blindly followed a union that wanted to keep them there forever.

          • Tory Blur says:

            I grew up in a Scottish mining town and can concur that the miners did not want their offspring to follow them down the pits and said so on many occassions.

          • Maq­boul says:

            Me also. I was the only Arab in the Villaaaage ;)

            When some young lad leaving school said he was “going down the pits” he was pitied. Pitmen were paid well but they worked bloody hard for it, yet none of them wanted the same for their sons.

            Every patronising man jack on the left who laments the decline of the “mining communities” has absolutely no idea what they are talking about nor do they care. Pit villages were not Utopia no matter how much the middle classes in Islingtopn opine.

          Dr Strangelove says:

          I’d have thought that the sensible thing to have done, if the point of the exercise is to find out who gives TB to who, is to put a lot of tagged badgers on the isle of wight for example and see how we get on for TB in cattle and then kill or capture all the badgers and then see how we get on with TB in cattle, then kill all the cattle and so on.

          • I'm a bit fick...but says:

            Badger originally caught TB from imported cattle, it was kept in check by all cattle being tested for TB and if positive they were slaughtered. Then that stopped because after the foot and mouth episode (that was pretty certain to have come from Porton Down and poor Dr Kelly knew phials were missing) they needed more cattle and didn’t want to slaughter the poor stock that came from Europe. So, badgers caught TB and started to spread it around…. pity the government didn’t catch it.

          • Maq­boul says:

            So you think this is all a knee-jerk reaction? That they haven’t spent decades researching this? TB in badgers didn’t suddenly become an issue when Brian May became a Lord of the Manor.

          Furloughed employees do not need to go in to work: your friend is designated critical so does. All employee’s should get paid retrospectively once things settle.

          The main impacts will be for people trying to access US Govt. services, and members of armed services who will be paid in IOUs.

          Passport processing, firearm license processing, and government loans (such as for buying a house / small business) will be delayed. Social security may be paid, it was previously.

          For services, garbage collection in DC will halt, as the budget for the capital is set by congress.

          Treasury operations should continue, as will progress on Obamacare which in part is causing the friction which is leading to this impasse.

          The impact of !taly though will be greater. This will have an effect on the Euro next week.

          The political instability which is likely to start in Greece, and need for elections in !taly as well, only a week after the re-election of Merkel is certainly not demonstrating stability.

      All five ministers in the party of Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi are resigning from the shaky coalition government.

      The development follows weeks of worsening relations between his party and Prime Minister Enrico Letta’s centre-left grouping.

      Mr Berlusconi had already threatened to withdraw his ministers if he is expelled from the Senate for tax fraud.

      The crisis could lead to fresh elections amid acute economic problems.

    EU Watch says:

    The Twitter attack against PDL has already started.

    But Italy leaving the Euro is a very real possibility now.

    From deltahedge:

    ‘Italy could leave the Euro. Runs a primary surplus. Shouldn’t be too difficult to re-structure euro debt given net external debt position’

    The critical problem for Italy is its external debt position which can only be addressed by exiting Euro. The alternative is to continue in and leave taxes too high, which is contributing to high unemployment and pushing the people into poverty.

    The PD have already started offensive against PDL as there will be an election required now the Letta government has been collapsed:

    The real economic situation which Italy is in suggests that the PDL and parties willing to take Italy out of the Euro, such as five star, should be strengthened as the people are aware of what the larger problems are and with the memory of the Monti government which forced austerity on the country (leading to the current dysfunction) will likely reject any offer of EU aid and vote out of the Euro.

    • 204
      EU Watch says:

      Some further background:

      Italian debt is about to be downgraded to junk status by S+P.

      When debt markets reopen tomorrow evening it would be fair to assume that yield on outstanding Italian bonds is going to go up. This instability will likely trigger a big problem in other European debt as well, such as that of Spa!n and Greece as it confirms that the situation in Europe is far from stable.

      The big problem here could in fact be Spa!n which cannot afford a spike in bond yield.

      Greece most people have given up on. The politically motivated arrest of the Golden Dawn representatives, combined with the announcement that elections will not be called, will likely spike Greek debt as a civil war risk premium should now be priced into that market.

      A further bailout of EUR 11bn was due for Greece. That figure will have increased now, so there is a good question as to how the G’erman people decide to handle this news.

    The arrest of Golden Dawn members of parliament in Greece is a worrying development.

    The closest the UK has got to this recently was the politically motivated pleb-gate affair, and the confiscation of children by R’otherham social services.

    An equivalent act, to bring into perspective:

    If Cameron and a few others were arrested over the r’ape allegations surrounding the Tory Chairman who was picked up today at the request of Miliband, that is roughly what occurred.

    One should be under no illusions that if Miliband was in power that he would have any problems doing this. Arguably, this has already happened once. (Pleb-Gate)

    EU Watch says:

    If the collapse of !talys government today does trigger collapse of the Euro:

    i) Germany is on the hook for €574bn of credits from the Bundesbank to the central banks of Gr3ece, Portugal, !reland, !taly, Cypru$, and $lovenia.

    ii) If the euro blows up, the Bundesbank still owes this money to the same private banks, which could be D3eutsche Bank, but could also be N0mura, C!tigroup, or B@rclays. This is not fictitious. The Bundesbank cannot default on these securities.

    The above is due to Target2: credits within the ECBs internal payments system which have always been advertised as adjustments, with minimal risk.

    - According to Lorenzo B!ni-Smagh! who used to be with the ECB.

    The graph in the above article shows Target2 net balance figures. Spa!n is the most negative followed by !taly. G’ermany is offsetting.

    Due to the way Target2 is structured, if any EMU member state exits, a default domino effect will be triggered that will bring down the system with massive losses incurred by counterparties remaining within the system.

    The G’ermans are probably wishing they had voted a bit more for AfD when the news from !taly sinks in.

          Even those thoroughly opposed to GD in Greece must be feeling a little uneasy at what has just happened.

          Greece has an uneasy history on this. The last major crackdown happened when the military junta fell in 1974. There is believed to be a link between GD supporters and those who were in favor of the junta.

          This is a very dangerous game to play, the unintended consequence could be dire in the extreme for Greece.

      “Throughout the nearly two thousand years of the Diaspora, J*ws were repeatedly discriminated against, restricted in the activities they could undertake, on occasion expelled en masse, as in 1492 from Spain, and often the object of the extreme hostility of the peoples among whom they lived. They were able nonetheless to exist because of the absence of a totalitarian state, so that there were always some market elements, some activities open to them to enter. In particular, the fragmented political structure and the numerous separate sovereignties meant that international trade and finance in particular escaped close control, which is why J*ws were so prominent in this area.

      It is no accident that N*zi Germany and Soviet Russia, the two most totalitarian societies in the past two thousand years (modern China perhaps excepted), also offer the most extreme examples of official and effective anti-Semitism…If we come to more recent time, J*ws have flourished most in those countries in which competitive capitalism had the greatest scope: Holland in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and Britain and the U.S. in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Germany in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century — a case that is particularly pertinent when that period is compared with the Hitler period.”

      Lifted this from the comments section in the Telegraph:
      Until recently, a flat opposite mine in N2 was squatted by about 11 Romanians for 18 months. They had 3 big vans taking up 6 precious parking spaces for the one dwelling, which they used for transporting their junk. They would walk up and down the middle of the road as if they owned it, pushing supermarket trolleys full of stuff. The whole of the back garden was piled 6ft high with collected junk.

      It wasn’t until they were caught tampering with the electricity supply that the police were able to arrest them, and board the place up. I had a look inside the flat a week later, and it was in a filthy, foul state. They had even ripped out the bath and sold it. Everything was stripped.

      These are the kind of Romanians people are so angry about. They are apparently detested in their own country and no wonder.

The Jury emphasized his support of a stronger Europe at a global level, where not only the economic, financial and political interests are taken into account, but also those interests closely related to citizens, and where culture play an essential role in the process of European construction and the future of the old continent. The Jury also noted Barroso’s commitment to representing the general interest precisely in this turbulent period of economic, political and social crisis, striving for the European Union to be a real solution, a single and common solution for all in order to solve the big challenges ahead through a strengthened civic integration model for the European Union to remain a model of peace, democracy and prosperity for the rest of the world.

      But nothing exemplifies the antipathy towards Thatcher quite like the often misquoted line: “there is no such thing as society”. This line deserves some contextualisation and discussion.

      The full context of Thatcher’s remark was as follows:
      Perhaps you’d like to look at the full context of that speech you fucking mindless leftie moron.

      “I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it: ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society.

      There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There’s no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.”
