CPS: Let Her People Go

The CPS have released a jazzy video to mark their Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty that takes place tomorrow. The headline grabbing policy to slash corporation tax for small businesses is already getting the attention it deserves:

Guido will be there to celebrate Maggie’s favourite think-tank’s 40th anniversary – and he will stream it live here for those who cannot join.

    Hattie Hatemen says:

    Ed Miliband was right to hold the Sun newspaper and right to apologise for holding the Sun newspaper. And he was right to resist calls for intervention in Syria and he is right to call for intervention in Syria.

    I was right to associate the pedlo exchange.
    And I was right to not apologise for that.

    And I was also right when I did apologise for that later on.

    Basically ..I agree anything Labour does is right. And if it later turns out it was wrong then it was right to be wrong.

    I’m going to be leader once Ed is knifed. Can you believe it? I can hardly wait!

    “Millions of public servants drain State budget.” http://bit.ly/1kKqQ6d

    A report from the Finance Ministry released a year ago suggested there were at least eight million people at all levels on the state payroll nationwide, including current staff, retirees and those who receive allowances and financial support due to past contributions.

    In February, the Ministry of Home Affairs suggested gradual reduction of 100,000 public staff. It caused a huge public debate.

    …..That means there’s one public servant for every 11 people.

    Even the Communists get it.

    So we can’t do anything in case someone takes advantage?

    How about this then. Starbucks , Amazon, Google, Specsavers etc pay NO corporation tax in the UK already as its all channeled through Luxembourg or Gurnsey.

    Mr Singh’s 24 one-stop-shop, however, pays 20% as he doesn’t have a world class accountant and access to international taxation deals.

    The past we learn from, the present we learn from the past, the future well because we didn’t learn from the past or present we have no future, the country is screwed, the politician’s are too busy looking after themselves and their future to bother about the people in the present, 1984 is the present, even though it’s the past, the future of us in the EU is the past, the present and 1984, we deserve what we have allowed this lovely country to become, we’ve allowed the politicians free reign, while most of us were too busy working, vote UKIP we still could have a future.

    But the party I voted for before has not been up to standard.

    That claim is made allowing for the fact that they had to go into coalition with the Liberal Democrats.

    We are back to the days of 1960s consensus politics. Hell. Cameron even has a picture of MacMillan on his wall. That led to Wilson/Heath/Devaluation/IMF/Double-figure Inflation/Winter of Discontent.

    It took Margaret Thatcher to reverse that long-travelled one way street. She was only able to unravel a third of it, an outstanding achievement for sure, but still leaving loads still to do.

    Thirteen years of Labour followed by four years of coalition has led to a public debt unparalleled in history.

    In a game of snakes and ladders, we have gone from 99 down to 1 again. All that good work and more undone…

    It seems Cameron wants to turn Britain into the Macau of Europe

    LabourNutter says:

    Believe it or not the last time something like this was tried it was by Gordon McShite himself – with CGT taper relief which was very encouraging for entrepreneurial start-ups etc.

    The problem was as Mr Crypto-Communist Alfred points out that the CGT taper was used as a dodge by various hedge-fund types who rightly or wrongly are generally perceived to be less worthy of such largess.

    Remember that meme run by the LibDems about the cleaning lady paying more in tax than the CEO of the hedge fund?

    So ALL social media bugged by GCHQ without any discussion in Parliament…

    Britain is becoming a police state, using generaled backdoor methods of surveillance worthy of the Stasi

    With ctizens so dumbed down and deceived by government propaganda that little is even said

    Do you really think a libertarian like Margaret Thatcher would have accepted the destruction of
    basic freedoms like this?

    As Liebour used to say when they were destroying democracy with GCHQ running the country, if you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear, until people have proper representation in the House of Corruption and the EUSSR we are heading to 1984, it won’t bother the countries in the EU as most are already there or like us soon will be, the people in this country are not interested so long as they are fed with crap and paid benefits and have plenty of money to bet and buy cigarettes they couldn’t give a sh1t, why do you think people from other sh1tholes are dying to try and get into an EU country and eventually Britain, to help us with our exports, no just free money and a place to live.

    Tough on Crimes, Tough on the causes of War Crimes says:

    That’s got to be the most biased article I’ve read in a long while. Any bets as to how many shares in Arms Companies that wanker owns (or his bosses do)? Any guesses how many of his own family are in the Military (and I don’t mean some REMF General or other)? Wankers like him, and his Lobbying buddies, have corrupted Democracy in the West. As for talking about freedom and Europe in the same sentence, I’ll treat that with the contempt that it deserves. If Germany wants to ‘get stuck in’, then I’d suggest the domineering Krauts (and their new EU hegemony) spend more money on their own Defense budget. They’re the ones who benefit the most form it. They export more Arms and Weaponry than the UK does! They should put their money where their mouths are. If not, they they should STFU. (AKA halt die fresse)

    I agree with Maggie re: the Freedom of the individual in society.

    She had the freedom to act patriotic and then go and live in the U.S. to avoid being taxed on her late husband’s riches.

    Whereas; I and many others had to remain here in order to benefit from her and her Governments policies.

    I’m glad I stayed and didn’t work for a big cigarette company like herself and John Major.

    I’m skint but guilt free.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
