Austerity hasn't tackled the deficit let alone the debt the country has. Currently the deficit is around 170 billion adding to national debt of 1.5 trillion. While borrowing maybe cheap we can't keep kicking the can down the road. Or we do and each generation leaves it for the next to sort out.

 

And there-n lies the principle. It is a bit like musical chairs, the difficulty only arises when the music stops.

£67k to work in London for however many days a week. No, it isn't a huge salary.

I'd rather have the likes of Skinner in Parliament, than not.

Dear Mr Miliband,

 

I'd like to ask you sincerely to recognise that when your party does something slightly silly that you shouldn't just fill your mouth with your feet at the first opportunity.  There's a lot of wisdom in the old saying of "A closed mouth gathers no feet".

 

So, when you said you felt respect when you saw a white van and England flags outside of someone's house and that you're "angrier than you've ever been", do you not get a slight tinge of guilt that you're being more dramatic than a Premiership footballer when a feather touches them in an opponent's penalty area?  If that's made you angrier than you've ever been, it just says to me that you couldn't care less about the dismantling of the NHS, the benefits outrages of the last few years, the Personal Independence Payment fiasco where disabled people have to wait over a year to get assessed and everything else that the current government have done to penalise those who earn under the national average wage.

 

Your credibility drops even more by the minute and, contrary to your desire to appear as a strong leader, it's done nothing but make you look weak, over-dramatic and just a little more silly than you were yesterday.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Someone who really wants to vote Labour but is getting more disheartened with every weak and vacuous statement you give.

 

It really does seem he has appointed the worst PR person to ever tout themselves as such.
