      Labour really are thick , They are just financially incompetent and should
      never be allowed any way near the nations finances .

        Labour stopped boom and bust and their changes to the education system meant that everyone gets prizes. Maths has been made simple so Labour politicians can understand.

        1+1=11 and 1+1+1=111, 2+2=22 and 100+100= 100100. That’s how you spend, spend spend!

          JJJ & Partners says:

          Or anything at all. They are systemically incompetent at anything, but tax to the hilt and spend more than they get on the socialist dream. You would think that by now the penny would have dropped, but they know that around 40% of the electorate are as thick as shit and would vote labour because that is what they do. They are relying on that…

    Someone says:

    Here’s an idea. Ban fractional reserve banking and make bankers invest in the companies they work in and lend their own money to people. Then they can trully claim to be high-rolling risk takers and worth whatever they are paid FROM THEIR PROFITS.

    Everyone knows it a tax rise for the working class.

    What’s the problem?

    Spending other peoples money ten times over is quite normal for Labour.

    Labour economic strategist (bean counter), says:

    We,the Labour party are to spend the bankers bonus tax money on a horticultural enterprise to produce magic money trees for everyone in the country, these will be distributed to our members first, of course.

    We are supremely confident that this will be successful, the party has had previous experience in such a venture some years ago with our peanut scheme, remember?

            I think you find that due to climate change there will be far more rainbows where, of course, labour will be able to find pots of gold to spend.

            Hang on. That one-eyed mongtard sold all the gold didn’t he.

      Old lag says:

      ..’distribute to our members first’ is not a new idea. In the 1980s it was the policy of the civil service unions that any pay rise they negotiated would be what they called BENEFOMO = benefits for members only.

      Sod the other non union workers, they didn’t count.

    BBC ANUS CUNT says:

    We all know these lying filth will be in power next May

    The scrounging vermin, and public sector paper shufflers will vote in their hordes to get Labour back into power.

    Nothing can be done to address the feckless, scrounging, workshy culture labour have entrenched.

    Sadly, like in ’97 they will inherit a rapidly growing economy, so it will take quite some years of criminal incompetance before they manage to wreck it again.

    Grim thoughts, but it will fun watching them smash the economy again

        Public Sector Paper Shuffler says:

        You knew we’d be back. Don’t worry we’re outsourcing much more shuffling these days so that your hard earned tax can fund overseas development and fund such superb companies as Crapita.
        You work hard so we don’t have to!

      Beware, anarchists at work says:

      The bankers didn’t do too badly during the boom years did they?…or perhaps it should be called the “Reign of Terror ’97 – ’10”.

      We will only know when a real socialist government returns when they implement a 97% tax on those “earning” over £1m per year.

      Be under no illusion , there was NEVER any labour incompetence , but deliberate calculated malfeasance.

    Ed Miliband is re-inventing the sermon on the mount, but this time using just one slice of bread and a sardine.


  12. 23
    The MP who was Clapped and Cheered by All the other MPs says:

    Former deputy speaker Nigel Evans ‘used his influence at Westminster to sexually assault young men’
    Tory MP was ‘very well-known and powerful’, Preston Crown Court hears
    He is accused of exploiting his position to assault seven alleged victims
    Alleged to have attacked one man in a Soho bar and another during a late-night drinking session at party conference

    Evans, 56, has denied r@pe, sexual assault and indecent assault

    Prosecutors claim that the ‘powerful’ official continued making sexual advances towards the victims despite being warned about his behaviour.

    Evans, 56, faces nine charges relating to seven complainants and dating from 2002 to 2013.

    The MP for Ribble Valley, in Lancashire, denies one charge of r@pe, two counts of indecent assault and six of sexual assault.

    Opening the case today, prosecutor Mark Heywood QC said: ‘Within the Palace of Westminster, in his constituency and in his own political party, Mr Evans was, during the decade with which you are concerned, a very well-known and powerful individual.

    ‘Part of his influence included the ability to make, or to break, the careers of those young people who themselves would be politicians or work for those who govern.

    ‘The prosecution case against Mr Evans is that he, often when in drink, pressed his sexual attentions on those younger men, using or trading on his position of influence.

    ‘Now this behaviour did not happen once but has been repeated over time and despite repeated warnings given to him by others.

    ‘It has also escalated in seriousness, no doubt because he believed that his position made it less than likely that someone would complain.’

    Mr Heywood continued: ‘The prosecution alleges that he, on separate occasions over many years, has sexually assaulted young men, both in public situations and in private.

    ‘By the last of the these, in early 2013, he r@ped one of the young men.

      Putin will need to build more prisons, with torture chambers of course, to house all those people in the new Russian Federation, spelt U S S R Mk II, who just don’t want to turn the clock back 40 years and have North Korea as their best friend.

    “We, er, er, haven’t quite worked that out yet…..” Says it all really.


  23. 59

    These bankers bonuses must be bigger than anybody imagined
    Tax cuts for the low paid—-Bankers bonuses
    Increase the minimum wage- Bankers bonuses
    Tackle child poverty——– Bankers bonuses
    Increase spending on the NHS Bankers bonuses
    Miliband has found the panacea , the cure for all ills in society everything that has gone before means nothing do you hear, nothing. Why did no one think of this before ?

    The British Public says:

    Bankers Bonuses = Magic Money Tree for Labour, a golden ticket to go on a spending spree and hose money on pet schemes for welfare claimants and union cronies

    A banker says:

    Right, so I’ll just add the money on next year’s salary, or get paid through a corporation, or have it in share options, and Beaker can fuck right off.

    Guaranteed not affect the deposits in their offshore avoidance schemes?
    Wonder if Dave’s youngster will be packed off to state school, complete with some fresh equine sandwitches for the lunchbreak.
