Sham Pain

“It was hard to stomach David Cameron preaching austerity from a golden throne” writes Guardian contributor Ruth Hardy, who waited tables at the Lord Mayor’s banquet on Monday. Guido commends Ruth for her use of cliché; rolling off all the old classics about “the cuts”, it being “like a scene from Downton Abbey”, and not forgetting the requisite moan about a “champagne reception”. Apparently not a fan of the stuff, she slams Dave for “the idiocy of calling for cuts while wearing a white tie”, somewhat bravely asking “has the man never heard of Twitter?” Well, talking of Twitter, here is a picture Ruth tweeted of herself drinking champagne in what could be “a scene from Downton Abbey”:

Has she “never heard of Twitter”?

    P.S. Can No.10 let us know asap whether you will be cumming at our wedding next year. We need to firm up on the champagne and eaton faggots orders?

    “…The guests enjoyed a champagne reception, and then were served a starter (“a celebration of British mushrooms”), a fish course and main course of fillet of beef, all served with wine of course. In the break before dessert, coffee, dessert wine, port, brandy and whisky were served, Cameron gave his speech. We retreated downstairs to a steam-filled kitchen, where we polished the cutlery. Most of us were exhausted by this point. Dinner service is physically demanding, and I am by no means the only person who combines two or three jobs. The contrast of the two worlds was striking; someone said it was like a scene from Downton Abbey…”

    Before the insults and “witty” sides, it might be useful to consider some (or all) what she had to said:

    “…Maybe Cameron didn’t see the irony; perhaps he forgot about the army of waiting staff, cleaners, chefs and porters who were also present at the banquet. Perhaps he thought he was in a room of similarly rich people, who understood the necessity for austerity. Perhaps it didn’t occur to him that this message might not be as easily comprehended by those who hadn’t just enjoyed a four-course meal. Perhaps he forgot about those of us, disabled or unemployed or on the minimum wage, for whom austerity has had a catastrophic and wounding effect…”

    Eh? How has government cutting waste (OK, they haven’t with the foreign aid budget, I’ll grant you that) had a “catastrophic effect” on people earning minimum wage?

    Their hourly wage is still the same, yes?

    And they pay less tax now. So they earn more.

    “…I wonder how Cameron and his government can do these things. Aside from the idiocy of calling for cuts while wearing a white tie – has the man never heard of Twitter – does he not see what welfare cuts are doing to the vulnerable in society? He enjoys a banquet, while the number of people using food banks has tripled in the past year. As someone on the shift with me said, “It gets annoying that we always serve free food to the people who really don’t need free food.”…” Good call.

    if I were a rich man, deedle didle deedle dum says:

    Its a hypocritical point, but it is a point. The entire political class can learn a lesson here – cuts should apply to all levels of government first – especially entertainment budgets, wine, champagne etc. MPs should not be able to call for wage constraint without taking it themselves.

    You wouldn’t expect your children to starve while you eat would you?

    Dave, Nick et al are also guilty of poo-pooing concerns about Roma immigrants. I wonder how much bigger a concern it would be if all of these immgrants planned to resettle in Chipping Norton and rural Bucks? Its the lower elements of society that feel austerity pain greatest – if you preach it then you should practice.

  45. 45
    Sur Nob Skelpoff says:

    Cameron has overseen the biggest squeeze on the standard of living in living memory, pensioners, the poor, the working poor are all being hit hardest. Food banks are exploding. This is supposedly one of the wealthiest countries.
    Meantime he is continuing the corporate socialism of helping the city to QE, and low interest rates. Additionally, the poorest have the biggest burden of the ‘green’ taxation.

    Tory Scum says:


    You people are so deluded on this site, you are all taken in hook, line, and sinker.

    I’ll leave two nice little quote’s from your hero’s…Pathetic people you Tories.

    No wonder they have deleted their speeches.

    October 2007: George Osborne commits to increasing state spending.

    “I have committed us to two per cent a year spending rises for the next three years. This will mean real increases for our public services”


    The consequences of this estrangement are grim.

    In a democracy, politics is the expression of our collective will.

    It’s how we make decisions for the common good.

    So when people lose faith in politics, they start to see society differently.

    They start to feel powerless to influence the world around them.

    Some people respond by retreating into private and family life.

    Others find solidarity in narrow groupings based on shared ties.

    A few get out altogether.

    That’s not the kind of Britain I want to see.

    Atomised. Divided. Declining.

    But that will be our future unless we mend our broken politics.

    To do that, we need to understand why this political breakdown has happened.

    A lot of it is to with behaviour.

    The behaviour of a minority of individual politicians, in all parties.

    Behaviour in the House of Commons.

    But I think above all, the behaviour of the current Labour government – in three particular areas.

    First, there are the straightforward broken promises.

    They pledged a referendum on the EU Constitution…

    …and broke their promise.

    They swore they wouldn’t introduce tuition fees…

    …and broke their promise.

    I could go on.

    There are many other examples, each broken promise breaking people’s trust and breaking our politics just that little bit more…

    …until none of the promises are believed any more.

    Employers predict you will work harder for less money

    It’s fine because you really want to spend more time at work anyway
    BOSSES across the UK are going to make you work harder so they can buy more things, according to a new survey.
    The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that although the economy is growing, employers are not planning to take on new staff because that would involve paying people to do things that you could do if you stayed at your desk until at least 9pm.

    A chartered spokesman said: “Instead of taking on more staff, companies are looking to ‘increase productivity’. And I think we all know that means.

    “It means you’re fucked.”

    Just one in five companies said they would increase staff numbers and most of those will be accountants who specialise in helping employers avoid tax.

    Meanwhile, legal firms are also expected to take on more staff to help employers grind you into the dirt when you take them to a tribunal for trying to kill you.

    Martin Bishop, an employer from Stevenage, said: “I have a great team here. They’re dedicated and professional and they all want to contribute as much as they can, especially at weekends.

    “I know they would not want me to take on more staff because they understand the harsh realities of globalisation.”

    Emma Bradford, one of Mr Bishop’s employees, added: “Keep it up, fuckface. Keep it up.”

    Major international child porn ring busted in Toronto / Canada:

    People who have been following the Rob Ford saga may be interested to look up his 2001 objections to spending city money making a road bridge in Toronto suicide proof.

    He preferred to see the money spent on tackling child sexual abuse which he argued to be one of the causes of Toronto’s very high suicide rate among children / young adults.

    This perhaps puts a different perspective on the nature of the lefties who have been running Toronto / Ontario and what Ford has been dealing with since being in office.

    Labour was wrong again as they always are says:

    At the same time, the Office for National Statistics released figures showing the number of people in work at a record high – and, significantly, most of the new jobs are in the private sector.
    Finally, after a decade in which the bulk of jobs went to immigrants, two-thirds of the 376,000 new posts created in the last year were taken by people born in the UK.
    Labour (aided by its anti-cuts cheerleaders at the BBC) won’t admit it, but all the signs are that Iain Duncan Smith’s bold welfare reforms, far from being ‘cruel’, are encouraging people to get off the dole and into the workplace.
    Yes, there are huge obstacles still to be cleared – not least the decision over when the economy is strong enough to absorb a rise in the current record low interest rates. And, yes, the Mail wishes that house prices weren’t rising so fast and that this was an export not consumer-led recovery.

    “His father John died when Davey was four years old, and his mother Nina (née Stanbrook) eleven years later, following which he was brought up by his mother’s parents. After attending senior school at the independent Nottingham High School (in common with MPs Kenneth Clarke, Geoff Hoon and Ed Balls) in the year above Ed Balls, where he was head boy in 1984, he furthered his education at Jesus College, Oxford where he was awarded a first class BA degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics in 1988.

We also used to consider Gordon Brown a towering intelectual collosus and it took us ages to work out that he was actually a disturbed hunchback who would regularly piss himself before running around the room clapping at imaginary flies. However due to us being the living embodiment of the Dunning/Krueger model fuckwit, we will never be able to learn from this and will completely misjudge the nature of every leader we ever get untill the end of time.

They are just a means to an end…bringing down Cameron and ridding it of the Cameroons who have failed along with their leader abysmally to live up to their promise of 2005 when we gave them a chance over David Davis

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
