52% Dislike Ed Balls’ Policies

This should do wonders for Ed Balls following his nightmare fortnight. A new Ipsos Mori poll finds that Balls’ policies are rejected by the public by two to one, with 52% disliking and just 26% liking his plan for the economy. Balls is now well behind Osborne on trust as well, 40% prefer George and only 29% Ed. Just 39% of Labour supporters said they like Balls. Wonder if he gives a toss yet?

      To be fair, Ed Balls doesn’t like Ed Balls’ policies. Neither does Mrs Balls.

      If you have been stupid to work for as long as possible and pay your taxes and N.I. and also be stupid enough to put a little money aside each month for your old age, you really are a Pratt, because if there comes a time when you need help from the state,due to ill health they will say no, you cant work but you have some money in the bank, it doesn’t matter that you have paid in for decades you get nothing.
      A good analogy would be winning the lottery going to the office to collect the money and find that they have looked at your finances and say you have got enough money so we aren’t going to pay out.
      It seems that paying in counts for nothing, but if you are a scumbag with multiple kids from multiple , unknown fathers you are fawned upon and provided with all your needs (alcohol, fags etc.) .
      It’s a great system no wonder the country is on its backside.

    Who on earth are the moronic 26% who like his policies. Balls is a typical socialist, his only answer to any problem is to spend other peoples money.

        He id Labour and thats what Labour, the lefties and all their supporters do.

        They seriously are mentally ill because it makes no difference how Labour treat them, how they purposely keep them in hovels and on benefits with no hope they still vote for them

        I remember on comment from after a by election is a dump constituency where the voter when asked said I’m glad Labour won perhaps some things will change around here. The seat had been solidly concrete Labour for over 50 years.

        FACTS

        The poor now pay less tax or even no tax at all under the Tories than they ever did under Labour
        The rich pay more tax than in the entire 13 years of the reign of terror with exception of the final week of that Labour regime.

        So go fuck yerself.

        You fucking cretin, “the rich” paid far less under Brown / Darling than they do now and the tax threshold roses have taken millions if low paid people out of the lowest tax bracket altogethet, but don’t let your moronic tribal stupidity and bigoted visceral hatred of people on the basis of their background colour your judgement and ignore the facts.

        If you have the necessary rudimentary skills you can find the necessary HMRC information to prove this – find table 2-4 on their website if your tiny little brain can stop focussing on dragging your knuckles along the floor for 20 seconds!

        I don’t even like Osborne or his party, but it doesn’t change the fact that you’re a thicko with the intellect of a goldfish (apologies to goldfish the world over) who accepts all the Labour bullshit as readily as your average dozy Tory believes everything that comes out of Cameron’s arse!

    We support George Osborne 447%.

    We carried out our own independent survey outside Battersea Power Station commissioned by the independent OBR.

    Out of the 16 million people canvased 97.8% said when asked that George Osborne would make a truly excellent Prime Minister. Only 1.36% said they thought David Cameron was doing an excellent job as our Leader.

    When asked whether Ed Milliband would make an excellent Prime Minister 50% of people said they did not even know who he was.

    The number of people who thought Edward Milliband would make a completely useless Prime Minister rose to 389%.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
