In Topic: £12bn in welfare cuts

On the wider cuts, I think Theresa May is forgetting the first rule of making brutal cuts: Keep the police on-side. She should read Maggie Thatcher's biography covering the run-up to the miners' strike and the strike itself for a good understanding of the effectiveness of a police force thoroughly looked after.


Its been suggested that the laid back attitude of plod to the riots a couple of years back was basically plod saying to the Tories "keep us onside you'll be needing us at some point"

Bless em they're so disarmingly neutral

People who have committed crimes should not have the same level as protection.

 

 

What exactly are these "levels of protection"?

We "help" other countries with state funding so they'll give British companies business. Those British companies will then use all manner of tax schemes to ensure that no corporation tax, PAYE or any other tax revenue gets into the British government's coffers, all while hiring the cheapest foreign nationals they can. Yay.


I wasn't advocating it just pointing out how it works and yes you're quite correct

Trade not aid. It sticks in the throat a bit when India receives UK aid and has a space programme.


We can't call it bribery so we call it aid and British companies get the contracts for the infrastructure

R4 Today programme: May asked to define extremism in new counter-extremism bill - and struggling to say the least to find that definition. <_<
