Quote of the Day

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”

    17.5% to 20% is a proportionately smaller rise than 15% to 17.5%, Cathy.

    Then again, that’s too-hard maths for a Leftard innit?

    CEO of Birmingham City Council states today on the Council’s Trojan Horse investigation to BBC World at One:
    “The allegations are spurrious”
    Later he stated his wording was inappropriate and they would be conducting a “professional” investigation.
    CEO of a Labour council telling us what will really happen with their internal investation?
    After all Labour cannot offend their Muslim Labour voters and union teachers.

      All forms of religion should be purged from the schools whether head banging muslims or superstitious jesus freaks .
      The name trojan horse is quite appropriate with regards to islam, not just concerning the infiltration of schools , the whole cult is a massive alien wedge imported to destabilise the country .

Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
