Now that we have taken back control, and vested it firmly in the hands of Rupert Murdoch/Fox, a small number of Hedge Fund Billionaires, and the (mostly Russian) Oligarchs who back Trump/Frag/Boj. The same people who took all the pelf over the last decade, when we were 'all in it together' are well positioned to do it all over again throughout the next decade.

Do not spoil the party by allowing parliaments, whether EU or UK to exert any control at the expense of this illustrious elite.

We have achieved, with the efforts of people who said they objected to elites, the MOST elitist administration that UK has had in the last three centuries!

Do not throw away this achievement now. We are well on our way to becoming an authoritarian rogue state!

How many times doo I have to tell yoo , that the Labour Party we grew up with in the 1960s led by Harold Wilson, is nothing like the Labour Party there is of today, led by an idiot who wants to go backwards, instead of forwards ...

Now yoo know that when yon Scottish one eyed git, Gordo Brown, bailed the banks out in 2008 when they went bust, to the tune of billions and billions of pounds, who had to pay for that ????

Did Gordo pay for it ?

Did Tony pay for it ?

No,, them two were too busy making speeches in Yankland on the after dinner speech circuit ....

No Whupsy, me and thee paid for all that out of our taxes, do yoo remember them saying "we are all in it together" well it was a lie, because we were in the brown stuff (shite) whilst Tony and Gordo lived the high life making millions

Yoo want to wake up Whupsy and smell the coffee

"Gordo Brown, bailed the banks out in 2008 when they went bust, to the tune of billions and billions of pounds, who had to pay for that ????"

Well there's a surprise; it was the Financial crisis started by the selling off of sub prime mortgages in the states, and worsened by the passing off of bad debts, (derivitives), by other banks.

Javid worked for Duetsche bank doing this. Blame him.

https://www.euromoney.com/article/b12km259jtpqtd/sajid-javid-from-risky-business-to-business-secretary

We keep being told that it was Labour that spent too much.
They did, but if Brown hadn't bailed the banks out, the whole financial system would have crashed.

The banks caused the problem: we paid the price by bailing them out by billions, and nine years of austerity, but don't let facts get in the way of lies.


Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (3933) Report abuse
Point I was going to make was that if Corbyn spends all these billions renationalising everything, then it will be me and thee who will be paying for it, for years to come by higher taxes and austerity, and saying that I wish that the utilities and strategic assets in this country had not been privatised, but to try and reverse 40 years of privatisation in a single five year parliament by massive borrowing, is mental and unnecessary.

They should start with the railways and buses, and renationalise the other assets bit by bit over a long period of time.

"They should start with the railways and buses, and renationalise the other assets bit by bit over a long period of time."

Surprise surprise, I agree with you, but stop trotting out the story that Labour caused the financial crisis.
They didn't; Javid and his ilk did.

If we crash out with Johnson's deal, there will be sweet sod all left to invest on anything.

From the Institute for Fiscal Studies on no deal:

"But IFS researchers have found that the long-term picture for borrowing and government debt appears more complicated, and less promising."

Here: https://www.ifs.org.uk/publications/14494

Labour is not my ideal choice, (which is ?), but preferable to the shambles that Johnson would cause. That's if he hasn't melted.

UKIP2 The Brexit party will not conquer Wigan, I don't think they'll do very much conquering anywhere else either, a very small handful of seats at best. What they may do is stop what I think would be the best of a bad job, another “a hung Parliament”. Nigel Farage is a snake oil salesman, at times he's not bad at it, but nonetheless. Boris Johnson is a the very least a professional fibber, a
Dick Dastardly/Artful Dodger, in a friendly clown's guise. Vote for Boris at your extreme, and I do mean extreme, peril. And as for comrade Jeremy Corbyn, AKA squiffy specs, the most successful destroyer of political parties know to the working man! Well I wouldn't bother if I was you, this Red Robbo's is going nowhere but the dinosaur graveyard in Siberia. And as for the rest, they are no
more than,“Collateral Damage” and not worth the bother. So as for me it's a walk to Mt. Zion church with the wife, followed by a coin toss, and a begrudging cross for one of the collateral's... Sad init!!!

No, but that isn't the topic under discussion.
Do you excuse all the sayings of Johnson and Farage ?

"it won't be him or his government who pay for it, it will be us poor buggers."
We already have paid for it for the last nine years of May and Johnson. He now wants to splash the cash, but with no explanation on how to pay for it.

With interest rates at their lowest ever, it is prudent to borrow to invest, but as I agreed, not all at once.
If we want services we have to pay for them, but that means everyone: people and all firms, including the likes of Amazon et al.

"When have Johnson or Farage paid homage to terrorists or wanted ex squaddies jailed? Political sayings by anyone don't come close to the traitors actions."

The GFA should have included a Truth and Reconciliation panel, and that may have healed some wounds for all sides.

What about Johnson's and Farage's comments that led to an increase in hate crimes.

I'm nor an uncritical fan of Corbyn, but on balance I'll vote for Labour, (not necessarily him), in the election.

Johnson would be an unmitigated disaster for this country, and hasn't Farage said that if Brexit doesn't work, he'll move abroad. Pity the poor sods, who don't have that choice.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (3933) Report abuse
I think that Corbyn may indeed NOT be a antisemite as such, but he has criticised the Israeli policies over the years, and then opened that painting didn't he ...

BUT

And I have not heard this word mentioned at all during this election, and that word is 'Momentum' now whether that word is banned under the Purdah rules I don't know.

Purdah

But Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Labour Party by a bloodless Koo, and I am serious about that, in that after David Milliband resigned in 2015 thousands and thousands of these left wing pillocks of the 'Momentum' movement, joined the Labour Party and swept lefty Corbyn to power, and it is THEY who are the antisemites, and owd Jezza has to dance to their tune, and so there you are, and if you remember this happened in the early 1980s when the 'Militant' group infiltrated the Labour Party, but Neil Kinnock got them all kicked out, but the damage they did meant that we had a Conservative Government in power for 18yrs and it was Tony Blair and Gordon Brown who persuaded the British people that New Labour as it was called, would not go back to having silly left wing policies ....

And the rest is history, Tony Blair won three elections for Labour, two of which were landslides and the third still gave him a healthy majority, and that was after all the Iraq War crap had happened, but the Labour of today, is not the Labour of 20yrs ago, they are now a Marxist infiltrated extreme Party, with mental policies.

So Whupsy yoo should be looking at getting rid of 'Momentum' from the Labour Party, not promoting them ...

Of the 2,025 British Jewish people who responded to the survey, 83 per cent said that Labour is too tolerant of antisemitism among their MPs, members and supporters. That’s significantly higher than the proportion of British Jews who think the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are too tolerant of antisemitism (19 per cent and 36 per cent respectively).

Attack on Rabbi in North London.

The shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, and the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, both condemned the attack.

Corbyn tweeted that he had spoken to Gluck to express his concerns.

"This racist attack on the Sabbath is appalling. My thoughts are with the Rabbi who was attacked and I stand in solidarity with the Jewish community."

"I have spoken to Rabbi Gluck from the Shomrim security group to express my concerns. We must stop this scourge of antisemitism"

Gluck confirmed that Corbyn “phoned to find out what happened and to express his shock and empathy with the community”.

He added: “We deeply appreciate his concern. He sounded extremely genuine. He was the ONLY party leader who called.

Well done, Jeremy & Diane

This Rabbi thinks different

"Just weeks before we go to the polls, the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety”, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis wrote in The Times this week. The electoral intervention, warning that “a new poison - sanctioned from the top - has taken root” in the party, was yet another mark of the serious breakdown in relations between many of Britain’s Jews and the Labour Party".

Posted by: Zanzibar Spangles (3822) Report abuse
Furthermore...

Seventy serving and former Labour officials have turned whistleblower and given sworn statements to the official investigation into the party’s antisemitism crisis, The Times has learnt.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has been inundated with testimonies from Labour Party staff, officials on the national executive and elected representatives since it announced in May that it was investigating the party.

In addition it has been sent more than 100 testimonies from party members, many Jewish, about antisemitism they say they have suffered or witnessed at party events.

The evidence has been drawn together in the Jewish Labour Movement’s 47-page, 28,000 word submission to the inquiry, which The Times has seen.
