#3037682 The Lib Dems

Posted by Griff9of13 on Yesterday, 12:57 PM

Saintslass has really bought into the party line that this country is skint.  Borrowing has never been cheaper, so why the rush to expunge the deficit in one fell swoop and use it as the excuse for running public services into the ground?  That would be ideological, mean spirited, completely unethical, and bang on inline with the conservative party ethos.  That couldn't possibly be the case. No.  Nothing to see here.

 

The whole austerity thing is nothing more than ideological nonsense. Especially when you notice it isn't working at reducing debt: Public borrowing rises to £11.8bn in September

 

Some would say that reducing debt is not the main aim of Austerity, but it is just a ruse to hammer down welfare spending (on mainly the poor and disadvantaged; corporate welfare continues unabated, we currently spend 6.25 times more on bank subsidies than on unemployment benefit :O some analysis).

"Charity is a cold grey loveless thing. If a rich man wants to help the poor, he should pay his taxes gladly, not dole out money at a whim."

 

Clement Attlee - 1920

 

I think this quote is very apt to Bob and his chums.

Labour still has some "proper" MPs (well, at least one) :)

I have seen comments of those supporting the UK's opposition to this saying that the bankers will up sticks and move elsewhere. But why would they when they can commit multi billion pound fraud in this country with impunity?

Thanks Griff. Your experience seems to differ from gary's

 

I didn't say I'd never seen anything bad, but the ones bad enough to stick in my mind are only a handful out of many hundreds of games. I have witnessed (and been involved in) mass brawls. I have witnessed some terrible behaviour from the sidelines of one or two notable clubs, urging their team to maim opponents etc. I have seen many a ref take some 'stick' from the side lines, but never anything more than questioning their decision making. But never, ever have I seen a ref verbally or physically threatened. Thankfully.

The comparisons with Union made me smile

Newspaper - The Sun vs Telegraph
Supermarket - Aldi vs Waitrose
Car - Vauxhall vs Jaguar

 

I'm obviously watching the wrong sport. <_<




#3032987 15/11/14 - 4N Final - New Zealand v Australia KO 7.45am (GMT)

Posted by Griff9of13 on 15 November 2014 - 09:51 AM

What a superb final that was, NZ deserved the win but fair play to the Aussies for not giving in and fighting to the end.

Now, how long until we get "australians 3rd team" etc. Oh, and Bentham will never ref an Australian game again. Had a very good game.


The Aussies should count themselves lucky they didn't receive another dozen penalties for all the last hits on Johnson when he was kicking.

That's out of order.


Normally, but we should make allowances in the case of Bird. ;)

Seeing as how closely our domestic laws are now entwined with EU laws I'd really like someone to ask Mr Farage how he would manage our withdrawal from the EU should he get his way, how long it would take and how much he thinks it would cost. IMO this process would take years and cost billions. Before we have to make a choice on the matter these are the things we really should consider.
