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”?

      Isn’t this another form of Hacking? It’s called Shacking….surely a Guardian contributor wouldn’t stoop so low as to pretend to be a waitress to spy on the Tory baby eaters?

      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.”

          Much better to rob them blind! My brothers in blood did this when we came to your country in 2003 and worked for a company that supplied the building trade with electrical goods. The branches were run so badly by your great British management we took out over £300k in goods and moved them on eBay (through 500 accounts) and they never even spotted it! One great scam you all paid for was the ‘open purchase order’ from one of your energy companies we just flushed £100k through it and it was never spotted. Thanks for the help in setting us up back home I’m now the mayor of my home town back East!
          Oh and because your British company paid us so badly we all claimed Tax credits and brought over the family when they needed medical care! Thank you! You really are the Fools of Europe!

    “…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.

    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.

    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.

      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.

    He was actually visiting Israel. I have no problem with Israel but clearly from reading the Tweets he has received, his constituents hate the state of Israel.

    As Chuka is a Labour friend of Israel and his constituents are haters of Israel then I suppose a visiting the Mid East Tweet was sensible from Chuka’s political career point of view, but it was a LIE non the less.

    From politicalbetting.com on UKIPs poll score today

    On a bare uniform national swing this is not enough for UKIP to win a single seat but it can damage other parties, particularly the Tories. This latest poll shows that 19% of 2010 CON voters are now saying purple – one of the reasons why the blues are down at 31%.

    Vote UKIP and get Milliband , more EU integration and no referendum meanwhile UKIP does not win one single seat.

        You’re right as a Tory voter for over 40 years even when the Bliar Phenomenon was sweeping all before it and the BBC and Guardian were enthusing about the “Second Coming of Christ on Earth” I voted Tory BUT not in 2015. I have now arrived at the sanguine view that Cameron is totally useless(if he couldn’t win against Brown in 2010 he has no chance in 2015) and that the country needs a sharp shock of a left wing Labour Government with the ensuing chaos just like the 1970′s….however i don’t believe that UKIP will make a breakthrough now or in 2020 cos’ it won’t but a resurgent Tory Party under a different leader might. 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

    He is part of the problem and nothing to do with the solution.

    Ed Davey was dealt a poor hand with regard to family life when young…

    “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. Whilst at Oxford, he was also elected to the JCR presidency of Jesus College.”
