#3125516 £12bn in welfare cuts

Posted by Phil on 19 May 2015 - 09:39 PM

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

Actually, they could be corralled under one overarching step really (if that's not mixing my metaphors): greater state control of just about everything.

That isn't fair. Throughout the years leading up to the independence referendum, Salmond and Sturgeon travelled throughtout the north of England trying to build alliances with business and civic leaders, trying to reassure them that their success was essential to our future. The idea of a high-speed railway linking the three city-regions of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle/NE has been kicking around in Scotland has been kicking around a while, and was resurrected again during this election campaign.

And the SNP offered to work with the Labour Party to benefit areas like the north and the poorer areas of Wales, but Miliband's rejected that offer of solidarity in no uncertain terms.

And Scotland has, electorally, stood shoulder to shoulder with working class areas of England and Wales for decades. On this occasion, with the opportunities opening up for us, surely you can understand how we voted.


Yes absolutely and I genuinely wish we were coming with you

You mean independence? Well so long as you do it without the Barnett formula. You Scots want to have your cake and eat it but us English have the cake so your leader needs to be careful.


Typical "English" arrogance there. They've voted for a party that wants independence why shouldn't they have it?

Good grief man/woman give up your digging to deep you'll be buried
Your obviously envious/jealous of people whos families have money


Had this argument before, left wingers must be jealous mustn't they?

Well no I'm not, I've got a good job, I earn lots of money, I live in a nice house and get away on holiday twice a year

Oh and Back to the Future, I do it by working 4.5 days a week!!!

Which means I get lots of time with family and friends

Who's jealous now?

I'm genuinely fearful of what the next five years will bring. my daughter starts University this year, will the tories allow the universities to set their own fees? its the free market innit?

 

And maybe do away with student loans? it's about standing on your own two feet after all innit?

 

Do away with protected employment so you can be sacked if your boss has a headache and feels a bit tetchy?

 

don't get ill, 'cos the NHS is actually doomed now

 

Basically its ###### you Jack I'm ok, but for how long will you be?

They are geniunely not contributing ,I'm on about the so called families who spend their lifetime on the dole know every trick in the book to get round the system ,keep knocking out kids,get more state money.
Never have any intention to work again,sadly these chavs are commonplace and are all labour voters because they know labour never make them get off the lazy arris's and contribute to society


I know there's literally billions of them, sitting round, doing drugs, having children, not working, some of them live in palaces, actual palaces, funded by the taxpayer, some of them aren't even English, the offspring of German and Greek immigrants. Send 'em back!!!

Why do you think it should ?


Well you know, in the interest of fairness and consistency

And because I believe owning more than one house and then charging people to live in your "surplus" properties is morally wrong.

Just wondering why the Tory "right to buy" policy doesn't apply to tenants of private landlords?

Not a thrashing at all, fitness told in the last quarter which you'd expect with Wakey being full timers

As a Fax fan I was happy enough with our performance
