And Guido’s favourite, the Liverpool Labour activist who wants to kill the producers:

The revenge of the Welfare Party.

UPDATE: With an eye on her future political career Jasmin Amelia backtracks and apologises for calling for the murder of TV producers:

    I think we need to have an opt-in system as to whether our taxes go towards benefits for the professional benefit-claiming class.

    Then these little flowers can fund it all themselves, and pay for their own breathless moral superiority while the rest of us get on with our lives and spend our hard earned on the things we actually want to.

    Easiest thing in the world to find some people on benefits, strip out all context and villify them. Could do absolutely exactly the same to the braindead, racist, moronic rich.

    For the others, they need to get up off their arses.

    Very fake, very contrived, very organised, very childish. Labour were run through spin, this dishonest approach to public life is passe. Why are socialists so afraid of the truth, why do they feel they know all the answers and are prepared to condem people who dont agree with them. This controlling leftwing attitude gave rise to the Nazi’s and Adolph, the Communists and Stalin and Mao, and every other miserable, jealous, hypocritical and twisted numpty. Just grow up, and stop pretending you are upset when you are clearly not. The little minx’s who wants all C4 Producers dead should be reported to the police and arrested for inciting violence. If I Tweeted that I wanted all BBC producers who wasted so much tax payers money on a non entity like Mandela, I am sure someone would have complained, I would have been man handled and the Minx in the photo above would have felt justice had been done, so why cant she be arrested for inciting violence or whatever.

    I really struggle to see how a party that claims it believes in “social justice” thinks it is OK for a tenant farmer to work 80 hours week to put food on the table of a man how believes his alcoholism is an illness that should be funded by the taxpayer.

    At one end of society you have the rich in money, at the other you have those rich in time. I seem to have neither time nor money, but I am expected to donate both time and money to benefit the other two groups.

    Ban the Left says:

    This was a propagandized show. Instead of reacting emotionally, the left should realize that they do not have the monopoly on such techniques and maybe start coming up with policy ideas which could address the problem that has been exaggerated on TV.

    Comparison to what was going on in G’ermany is perhaps a bit disrespectful, but again we see that the left truly do not care about real people, or for that matter History. For them, history is a paint by numbers source to be revised for whatever cause they are trying to advocate in the present.

    What people need to understand is that EU distortion of UK society, in part immigration is a factor there, and Labour policy 1997 thru 2010 combined with coalition policy to date, is what is responsible for what they are seeing on screen.

    If they cannot be bothered to come up with a sensible alternative, UKIP perhaps should fill that void.

    Jon Snow was once referred to as “so done who is paid a lot of money to read out pages from he Guardian.”

    If poor old Jasmin is so upset she can always volunteer, along with all the other lefties, to pay more in taxes so we can keep more of what we earn.

    She could take it a step further by letting a benefits claimant live in her spare bedroom or sleep on her living room floor – thought not.

    C4 a right wing broadcaster; I was astounded they even thought of making his programme.

    There is a widespread misapprehension how the benefits system works. It is structured so that a certain level of income is received one way or another. If you lose out on one benefit, you make up part or all of the the deficiency on another.

    Take the state pension as an example. If the State pension rises less slowly then the amount swallowed up by pension credit for those with little or no income bar the state pension and no substantial savings will rise, as will housing benefit and council tax benefit for those with little income who rent. As the majority of pensioners have no .substantial savings or a pension other than the state pension, the overall amount of money the taxpayer would have to cough up is unlikely to radically change if the uprating of the state pension is put on a footing which results in lower increases.

    There is even a potential loss for those with more generous pensions and savings who pay income tax after retirement age. If the state pension rises more slowly, this group will pay less income tax.

    To make any significant savings on pensioners, the whole pension and benefits system would need to be radically altered.

    A boy from my year at Grammar school in Buckinghamshire went to Uni to study history and politics and came out a radical socialist, moved into media and is now Head of Sport for C4. He’s the one who sacked John McCririck, saying he did not fit with his plans for a more inclusive output. More diversity, except for those in media management, who are all middle-class lefties, like him. I remember him as a safe, favoured pupil who was captain of the football team. Now, he rants against selective schools. Do as I say, not as I do – the socialist motto.

    FFS says:

    It is the same with benefits

    If you are not working you can claim child tax credit, housing benefit, child benefit free school meals etc. up to a limit of £26,000 per year.

    If you are on a minimum wage you can claim working tax credit, child tax credit and child benefit adding £10,000 on top of your £13,000 salary, but you can also claim housing benefit on top. You will pay almost no tax. All together you will likely have an after tax income of about £30,000.This is equivalent to about £40,000 before tax.

    As you go up towards in salary you lose progressively more tax credits and get taxed more until you reach £32,000 p.a. but at that point your after tax income is only about £28,000. So although your employer values you 3 x more than the lady cleaning the toilets, the government disagrees and actually levels your net disposable income via the benefits system so that you take home more or less the same, and it isn’t much different from someone claiming full bennies.

    As you go above £32,000 you now get taxed at 40%. So you really need to be earning more than £40,000 to start making an appreciable difference to your income compared to someone claiming full bennies. But remember, you are basically going to be working 40hrs a week to be something like £4,000 a year better off than someone on bennies!

    Once you go above £50,000 you not only get taxed much more you also lose your child benefit. At this point it becomes sensible to start thinking about working fewer hours to avoid paying excessive tax, because once you are paying income tax at 40% and losing child benefit as well the marginal rate of tax is as high as 65%.

    Once you go above £60,000 you are paying as much tax as you can be and your benefits are gone so now you start to make gains on the extra income. In 2014 an MPs salary will rise to £75,000p.a. On this kind of salary your net disposable income is at last significantly higher than someone on bennies.

    Gordon Brown achieved communism without anybody noticing. We now have everybody on the same net disposable income regardless of their value as measured by the free market. Only the elite have net disposable incomes higher than the rest of us.

    We have not yet realised the full impact of what the last Labour government has achieved, because many professional people have previously bought homes in middle-class areas well away from those on bennies, but this is changing as councils are forced to rent homes in middle class areas for those on housing benefit and banks start to consider tax credits as part of overall income towards mortgages.

    In one generation we will find our professionally qualified children living cheek by jowl with people that haven’t worked a day in their lives and have no intention of doing so.

    This is a real local news story from Dartford in Kent:

    http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/news/10906385.Jobless_gipsy_wants_a_new_council_house_because_hers_is__haunted_/

    A JOBLESS gipsy is demanding a new home from Dartford Council after discovering a man died in her flat – saying her religion forbids her from living there.

    Lisa Bowden, 40, has not worked in 15 years and claims £260 in benefits a week and was given a newly-decorated two-bedroom home just two months ago.

    But she claims she can feel the presence of the spirit of the former tenant and says it is against her gypsy religion to live in a home where someone has died.

    The former heroin addict who has four children by two different fathers, is now asking Dartford Council for a three-bedroom house with garden.

    She said: “When someone dies from a gypsy culture, we would burn the caravan.

    “It is forbidden for us to enter somewhere where someone has died, it is not good for us. I can feel his spirit and it gives me the shivers.

    “The council need to give me a new home. One with a garden and three bedrooms so my daughter can visit.”

    She gets £70 weekly employment and support allowance, and £60-a-week in child tax credits.

    She also rakes in £80-a-month in child benefit, and her £90 weekly rent is paid for by the taxpayer.

    In her taxpayer-funded pad, Bowden has a large number of expensive gadgets and furnishings, including two flat-screen televisions, a PlayStation3 console, a Nintendo Wii, a new leather sofa-bed and a new microwave, kettle and toaster from Next.

    At Christmas she bought an expensive new laptop for her nine-year-old son.

    When she was given the flat at the end the council – who also pay her £90-a-week rent – gave Bowden nearly £200 to redecorate and she got a new bathroom and kitchen.

    Like Owen Jones, Russel Brand, Stephen Fry, Tristam Hunt, Chuka Umana the Eagles, Balls and Cooper, Prescott, Johnson, Clegg, Cameron, Milliband et al they just think we are all thick (and they, obviously are genius) Times are changing I hope, close the BBC, leave the EU to its corrupt and increasingly meaningless devices, make the twitterati the butt of all your jokes and vote out the common purpose goons in parliament for a start.

Since one of them is Hugh Bonneville I can’t help thinking ridiculous things. I’m a bad person and I’m going straight to hell. But if I were her mother I’d be removing much of this material now before the silly kitten picks up a serious stalker.

    17 year olds are allowed to be earnest and fluffy and silly – if not then, when? – but politics is a serious business. The local Labour party should not be staking out a fresh kid with the cynical aim of tempting in a load of hungry old komodo dragons.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
