Comrade Gordon’s 5-Year Plan Today

It is going to be all Gordon, all day today. He will be telling us how we live in a heaven on earth and tractor production in the Urals is up 500% since the last 5-year plan.

Meantime the government spends even more than it taxes us to the tune of something like £100,000,000 a day. The BBC always like to tell us it costs less than a newspaper a day, well Gordon overspends three newspapers a day for every man, woman and child in the country – every day.

The result? Inflation at the highest since 1991, government indebtedness out of control and the whole public sector pay and prolifigacy being done off-balance-sheet means the City is demanding more and more to hold government debt. His main boast is that he removed monetary policy from his control by ceding interest rate decision making to the Bank of England. The longest sustained period of growth in generations that he boasts about began under the Tories after we came out of the ERM system – a decision he bitterly opposd at the time. Child poverty rates were lower under Thatcher, youth unemployment is higher now than it was in 1997 and social mobility is lower than it was under Thatcher as well. Everything he has meddled with has become overly complex and muddled. Ask any Blairite why after ten years the welfare state and the public sector remain largely unreconstructed and they will tell you it is because of Gordon’s obstructionism. The business sector is groaning under the weight of over-regulation and over-taxation, Britain has tumbled from the top to the bottom of the competitiveness tables. In benign times he has had no major economic disaster, but no economic success either.

For all his talk of reform and renewal of public services for the benefit of ordinary working people, remember when he dazzles his new sincere smile, he went private for it

Guess Who Did This Attack Ad Before the End

3 Out of 4 Beautiful People Selected

With the selction of Zac Goldsmith for Richmond, three out of the four A-listers first identified by Guido as thebeautiful people have been selected for seats of varying likelihood of being won. Only Adam Rickitt remains unplaced. Surely he is the man to turn a Northern town blue?

CORRECTION : Bugger – Julia Manning (third from left) has not been selected – Guido got confused with someone else entirely. So headline wrong, picture wrong and premise wrong. A great start to the week…

Tomorrow morning doctors from all over the UK are having a protest march from the College of Physicians in Regents Park to the College of Surgeons in Lincoln Inn Fields; it is not often that doctors give up a Saturday at the golf club, so they must be pretty exercised.

The Guidoisation of Democracy (Part 94)

PA is reporting that “Gordon and Kylie got on really well. They spent quite a bit of time talking to each other over drinks” at a party organised by chick-lit wit Kathy Lette last month. Guido is willing to bet that Gordon’s favourite Kylie video was Slow.

Kylie has a very, very loyal fan following in some quarters.

Labour’s “Fear Culture” in Scotland

Blair is losing it, this morning he dismissed the SNP-backing George Mathewson, the ex-Royal Bank of Scotland CEO as “self-indulgent and absurd” after he came out backing freedom for Scotland. He also implied George wasn’t a real businessman – despite the man leading RBS from a regional bank to what is now a global investment banking force.

As chief executive of the Scottish Development Agency, he is credited by many with creating “Silicon Glen”. He took RBS from losses to global profitability. In a letter to The Scotsman today George accuses Labour of scaremongering about the SNP and of creating a “fear culture” about independence – “I have never really seen myself as a political figure, but all I will say is I don’t share the fear culture that some people think we should have.” He dismisses as “absurd” Gordon Brown’s claim that investors would flee if Scotland was free.

All bang on the money, Scotland standing on it’s own two feet would be good for Scotland and good for England. Labour opposes independence because it knows without Scottish Labour MPs, England, which votes Tory, would not be ruled by Scottish Labour as it is now.

The whole Labour party thrust is that the Scottish can’t well rule themselves alone, when in reality it is the Labour party that fears it can’t rule England without Scottish Labour MPs. The scaremongering by Labour is an insult to the Scottish people. The similar sized Republic of Ireland manages to rule itself, have lower taxes and higher per capita GDP than the UK. In comparison, after a decade under Labour, parts of Glasgow now have third-world level health indicators.

Dave Ditches Core Instincts and Still Keeps Base

Over on PoliticalBetting Mike Smithson is giving much consideration to the surprising ease with which Cameron is shifting to the centre without losing much core support. 96% of voters who voted Tory at the last election still plan to vote Tory again, 1 in 9 who voted Labour plan to vote Tory and 1/8 who voted LibDem plan to vote Tory.[…]
