WATCH: Rachel Reeves Refuses to Deny Her Welfare Wishlist

Rachel Reeves just repeatedly refused to deny she told a gathering of socialists that “it will be much better if we can say that all of the changes that the Government have introduced we can reverse and all benefits can be universal.”. 

The Labour welfare mask slips.

Mark Harper clearly stood down to spend more time reading the Guido Fawkes Blog ‘which one or two members are familiar with’…

    Gerbil 7 says:

    Why should anybody from the Labour Treasury team need to add up?
    When in power, if the numbers don’t add up then just borrow some and get the tax-units to stump up.
    What’s your problem?

    Ed Miliband says:

    “I have never had a job & yet I have become a millionaire at the expense of the taxpayer.

    I understand Welfare Britain.

    The problem with this system is that she should be asked by the Speaker (obviously not Bercow :-) ) to stand up and explain what she has or has not said in the public domain.

      The good people of Shipley ! says:

      Hapless Chris Leslie on the Daily Politics said that ‘for some people’ the reduction in housing benefit for over occupancy feels like a bedroom tax. You couldn’t make it up.

        …and for others listening to this empty-headed fuckwit chunter it is like purgatory, purgatory, purgatory, purgatory…. aaaaagggghh!

      Camberwick Green council says:

      Have a look at the housing benefit section on the website of some Labour councils. Some of them have a section on the ‘bedroom tax’. For them it’s official. The spare room subsidy is the bedroom tax…..because boy Miliband and Rachel say so !

    Just heard an interview with a lawyer on world service, he represents passengers relatives on the Malaysian aircraft that has disappeared. You have got to ask yourself how did the relatives hear about some obscure London law firm?I think that is easy, ambulance chasing scum.

    Chuka Umunna – Britain’s first black PM

    May 2020 can’t come soon enough.

      I hate Labour says:

      Upchuck will never be prime minister. That’s the funny thing about Labour. They claim to be for women and ethnic minorities, but they’ve never even had a female party leader, let alone a black male leader. Besides, Upchuck is a smug, oily, talentless c-unt in love with himself.


  12. 14
    We will reverse all the welfare cuts but still be tougher than the tories. Yeah right ! says:

    If Reeves and co get in in 2015 and she repeals the non existent bedroom tax for social housing tentants in receipt of housing benefit, wonder how long it will be before there is a legal challenge from a housing benefit claimant who is renting in the private sector who says “Hey, I fancy having 2 bedrooms, not one, show us the money” Liebour clearly haven’t thought this through.

      Newsflash ; New pub chain called Pound Pub opening in weeks up North somewhere (Rochdale , Stockport ?) where all half pints will cost one pound and full pints one pound fifty. Plans to roll out nationally . Supermarket drinks counters quaking in fear.

    The reaction he got when he mentioned Guido’s name was quite fun. The two in the background looked at each other and grinned. Clearly, lots of MPs read this blog.

        About ten minutes after an interesting article appeared on Gweeds about a certain South London MP I emailed his wife about it .

        She pinged back ” Already seen this ”

        Of course they read it . . They ‘ re all glued to it .

    5 great reasons to NOT cash in your pension
    >> Income tax is payable at up to 45% on the amount you withdraw
    >> You CAN buy property with your pension and avoid tax
    >> Lose all tax free growth that your pension offers
    >> Your new investment returns will be taxed if you withdraw funds
    >> Avoid potential Inheritance Tax on the amount withdrawn

      On my way to my pension provider's office says:

      5 better reasons to cash in now before you pop your clogs:

      Nights at the Ritz
      World cruises
      Lambo in the garage
      First class world-wide travel
      First rate private medical treatment

      … and when it’s all gone and we’ve had a whale of a time spending our own money, the good old taxpayer will donate lots of freebie bennies to us out of work oldies. Life is tough at the top you know.

    I hate Labour says:

    It’s been a great week for amusing videos about Labour/the left and it’s only Tuesday. First, Ploppy Toynbee’s death stare, then Ed Miliband’s sniffing a woman Lecter style, and now Rachel Reeves exposed as a liar and hypocrite.

    Any chance Diane Abbott could do another fuck-up before the day is out?

        Yes but rolling one s eyes virtually into one s sockets before replying to a question is standard psychological behaviour r for people who are playing for time in order to answer , by concocting some acceptsble falsehood which will get them off the hook. Blatant body language recognised by all interrogators including police forces and Defence/ Prosecuting Counsels workdwide.

      I never needed a script. I just answered everything with a combination of the following phrases:

          Let me make it absolutely clear that our position is one which we discussed at great length…no please let me finish….our position is the one that was adopted before the last election and it is absolutely clear from our last discussion that lessons have been learned and we have to be absolutely clear about that.

        It’s not entirely Lavery’s fault. He’ll have just been given that question ro read. It’ll be somebody who wanted to take Lavery down a peg or two. It’s the sort of stitch-up I’d expect of Ned Balls, the man who used to delight in giving postie Johnson such duff information and then watching him fall flat on his arse.

      Didn’t Bryant train to be a priest?
      Was his excuse for posing along the lines of ‘practicing de-frocking’?

    It is a disgrace that commenters are judging Rachel Reeves on her looks, her voice, her religion. her tribal affiliations and her employment with a company that pissed away billions of taxpayers’ money during her tenure there. Rather judge her on the fact that she talks the most amazing load of complete garbage since Stanley Unwin died.

    Sqeezing Pimples says:

    Labour also refused to reverse the so called Bedroom Tax when it come to their farting around with the taxes they will change if it gets into power. Therefore they stand up and lie each time they say “Bedroom Tax.” The lefty bastards. I don’t earn much get no benefits but I want to work and earn more without having to supplement the leeches who come here illegally. For our genuine sick and disabled I will happy to pay but not the scrounger a who earn more than me for doing naff all since they left school or came here.
