  1. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Its utterly bizarre that intelligent people can muster support for this vile man. He clearly has a huge cultural problem within the party, this is a culture that inherently lives deep within the fundamentals of far left extremists. Make no mistake these people are far left extremists, they are as dangerous to this country as the likes of the BNP, Britain First and all the other crackpot parties. Corbyn gets passionately upset over Windrush but doesn't show the same passion towards Anti-Semite rape threats in his own party. He calls Hamas and Hezbollah friends, yet supports call for the president of our biggest trading partner to be barred from the country. He wont condemn Venuzela, he wont condemn Russia, he wont condemn Iran. I can not understand why people have such an affinity to Corbyn, he clearly lies (a lot! despite his honest politics bollocks), you can see when he gets asked a question he doesn't like or, something bad gets pointed out to him he gets very angry and defensive. He really is the kind of man who would make an excellent 'dear leader' in some 3rd rate South American nation, where him and McDonnell would kill anyone who denounces him. Its absolutely bizarre!

    Its no more pure speculation that the belief that Brexit will have negative consequences. Those that believe Brexit will destroy the economy should also have similar reservations over a far left extremist taking over the country. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11864953/Why-Jeremy-Corbyn-and-his-team-would-ruin-the-economy.html Even Labour MPs admit it. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-economic-policy-angela-rayner-s-word-bust-strategy-jeremy-corbyn-high-risk-a8140961.html Not strictly linked but an interesting article: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/liamhalligan/9484414/A-message-from-the-1970s-on-state-spending.html A private sector working for a business earning £100k is determined by the market, for example if the pin cushion is successful they can afford to pay those wages. There are particular roles in the public sector that do demand a good salary, I have never ever denied that. What I a saying is that we do not need an executive director on community relationships at an NHS Hospital to be on £100k, we don't need them, we got on perfectly without them in the past. There are some non jobs in the public sector which is why I think a fully independent review should be carried out into whether roles add significant value to an organisation, especially where these services were delivered perfectly well, if not better in the past without these roles.

    I equally don't see how anyone on the moderate/centre left can support a far left extremist Corbyn government who would decimate the countries economy, whilst not supporting Brexit as it could decimate the countries economy. Bearing in mind Corbyn and McDonnell are staunch Brexiteers even if the rest of the party isn't. The difference is Corbyn and co under the guidance of the despicable Milne will happily manipulate and lie in an attempt to win whatever populate vote is going. I will give the campaign team something they are very clever. Politics in this country is seriously screwed, and often the viewpoints taken by many don't seem entirely logical. I personally don't see why we don't try to negotiate something like Switzerland, I am not sure how their plans are going but am sure they voted to end Freedom of movement. Surely if they strike a deal so can we?
  6. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I would question some of the logic used in that site for calculating too. For instance Labour will count the removal of a Director Business Development (from a council) from jobs as a 'cut'. As a general rule Labour councils have a reputation of being quite wasteful so it stands to reason, they may have seen bigger 'cuts'
  7. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Ahh yes Tory = Bad Labour = Good The other crashes were probably due to the global economic climate at the time I am sure. Well if Comrade Corbyn gets elected then we will see the mother of all economic crashes unfold before us. I just hope there is time to get out of this country before that idiot destroys it.

    At the time. Had the continued to lead the country and not changed course I very much doubt they would have been borrowing cheaply now. Labour would have also had to cut, and or increase tax. We would have had very high unemployment by now. Much of the Western world is booming with growth rates of 2-3.5% whilst we a scratching along at just under 2% with the uncertainty of Brexit and record employment. Sustained growth and high employment are massive achievements, much better than boom and bust. I would much rather us have 20 years of slow growth than 5 years boom, 3 years bust, massive job losses rinse repeat.

    Very true indeed. Government is always going to make mistakes, its how they resolve it that matters. At the end of the day Rudd has stood up in Parliament and apologised, she has said she will do her best to resolve it. She has fully taken ownership of it. Its an unfortunate situation that some people have been put in a pretty awful situation.

    There is no guarantee you can 'borrow cheaply' this is the problem. To borrow cheaply you have to show some fiscal credibility, which is basically to stop spending money you cant afford to spend. If we had carried on borrowing in 2010 our cost of borrowing would have risen significantly , our credit downgrades would have been much worse. So which of the 'other' countries have the following: 1. High Employment 2. Running a balanced budget on day to day spending 3. Sustained period of consistent growth since 2013 Wages apparently aren't failing in 2018.
  11. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I didn't say they did in that previous phrase (if you re check) but I disagree. The global financial crisis didn't affect many countries as badly as it did us because they were run better, but we have been around this many times so park it there. I was referring to other issues: -Mass immigration -Poor infrastructure planning (power, green energy, roads, rail) -Encouraging the purchase of Diesel cars -Issuing hospital and school building contracts to dubious companies -Filling the public sector with non-jobs -Pathfinder project -Creating an entitled generation who expect money for nothing Of course they did some good things too -New hospitals -Surestart -New Schools -Reduced waiting times for NHS To be honest if there was a Labour leader who was a decent centre left politician I could forgive any previous mistakes. But Corbyn.....too far left.
  12. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    For some people everything bad that happens is the Tories fault. Formula is Tory = Bad Labour = Good I can acknowledge for instance that the Labour party did do some positive things when they were last in government, they also ****ed a lot up for which we are still seeing the results now. The current Labour party still has some excellent hard working MPs, for instance Ruth Smeeth my local MP is excellent despite not being from the local area, she genuinely does her best for local communities. Unfortunately the Labour party is run by a far left extremist twat. He is a danger to every single right, service and freedom we have in this country. He is a disgusting man, with questionable ethics who lives behind lie and deceit which many naïve people seem to be falling for worryingly. This man is exactly the same kind of character as despot dictators in South America, Putin, Kims, Assad.
  13. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Just common sense. There has been a **** up, lets deal with it. Like the whole of Northern England, and the Midlands for example. Where Labours uncontrolled immigration policy and lack of planning has resulted in large communities of isolated immigrant communities, with no reason to integrate, no jobs, and no facilities. Its been like this for a long time the infrastructure has never been implemented the jobs were never available. Its no wonder these communities become disenchanted/isolated and turn to crime/extremism in some instances. Quite simply these people shouldn't have been moved there. Unfortunately this is a negative of Labour immigration policy, for some it has driven them to the extreme of blaming immigrants and where they cannot see any positives, the last thing they want is some Islington Socialist lecturing them about the positives of immigration (there are many) and calling them a racist because they disagree but they are not seeing it!
  14. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    That is correct in certain circumstances. For example, this may have been in the context of say Abu Hamza who claimed he had a right to stay in the UK because of his family etc etc bollocks. The Windrush issue has been a monumental **** up, I don't think anyone has denied that. Having tough immigration rules for people who take the piss is necessary. The are 2 different things.
  15. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Apart from they have not actually done that have they? The hyperbole from the left is quite funny. A **** up has happened Rudd has admitted it and they are trying to sort it, at least they put their hands up instead of making up a lie. For example, like someone going on a train, sitting on the floor and claiming its because Virgin Trains and privatisation caused it, when actually it was just because the guy in question was a complete lying belled.
