FFS This government should should all be shot ,It is uneffin believable
It was a fantastic ad for the Tories! It basically said as ZANU Labour our solution is spend, they'll come in and cut and save! Excellent! I'll have some of that.para-dox said:just watching it! Incedible incompetence on every level. quite amusing that it followed an up-beat labour political broadcast( in a very negative, anti-Tory way) , the same old muppets trying to convince they have it all under control!!
Aren't the Taxpayers Alliance the one who want to cut the pensions of the Armed Forces? No I don't think I'll follow that link.meridian said:If you really want to depress yourself I suggest you click over to

This one's the killer, a lot of that cash came from the City, the tax paid by the high earners on salaries and bonuses and on the profits of the banks. The tap has been turned off, there's no more cash. The banks are now in the hands of former Trots and Communists.Deadreckon said:The stat given on the programme is Â£105bn per year wasted. That's Â£5,250 per taxpayer per year!

"The TPA is a rightwing lobby whose finances are opaque, but which was founded, and is staffed, by former Conservative party councillors and researchers. Its advisory council consists of luminaries of the free-market right: Ruth Lea, who was head of policy at the Institute of Directors; Madsen Pirie, of the Adam Smith Institute; and Professors Minogue and Minford, leading lights in Margaret Thatcher's economic firmament. With a full-time staff of 10, it digs and delves to produce "facts" and "figures" designed to undermine trust in everything in the public sector".
As a long standing member of the TPA the answer is no they don't.ashie said:Aren't the Taxpayers Alliance the one who want to cut the pensions of the Armed Forces? No I don't think I'll follow that link.
Sorry, but I'm just not having this. If the TA comes out and says that they're gunning for all public sector pensions except the Armed Forces, you might have a point. But they don't. They are as a matter of principle, against the present pensions arrangements of the Armed Forces and anyone else paid from the public purse.armchair_jihad said:As a long standing member of the TPA the answer is no they don't.ashie said:Aren't the Taxpayers Alliance the one who want to cut the pensions of the Armed Forces?

But ashie don't let the facts get in the way of you attempting to put this thread off topic, after all YOU don't want the truth about 'Big G' being discussed.
Now get back to raising the post count on labour list and prescots web effort
What does amaze me is the number of so-called economics 'gurus' who have suddenly discovered that we've tumbled over the edge of the cliff. It's been obvious for at least 3 years that we were heading for deep shite and they're trying to make out that no one saw it coming - b0ll0cks.
