Brown has unveiled 5 new pledges of what Labour will do if re-elected.

1. Secure economic recovery, halving the current £167bn budget deficit.

2. Raise family living standards – with low mortgage rates, increased tax credits for families with young children, helping first-time buyers and relinking the state pension with earnings from 2012.

3. Build a hi-tech economy through support for businesses and industry in creating a million new skilled jobs and the delivery of high-speed rail, a green investment bank and broadband access for all.

4. Protect frontline investment in policing, schools, childcare and the NHS – with a new guarantee of cancer test results within a week.

5. Strengthen fairness in communities through controlled immigration, guarantees of education, apprenticeships and jobs for young people and a crackdown on antisocial behavior – with victims entitled to take out civil injunctions, funded by the local public authority, if the police are not taking action within a set time.

The smell of bullshite hangs heavily in the air. The cnuts have had 13 years why have they not done these things before?

I seem to remember a pledge card they brought out in 1997 and again in 2005. They have not achieved any of those pledges so why should we believe them now?

Brown has more front than Blackpool.

To be honest things are that bad now that I am actually starting to hope that Labour win with a tiny majority so that they get lumped with the disaster they have created, and then with resulting chaos we get another election when they can no longer talk about how they are the only people to be trusted.

Yeah, then the tories might get a decent majority, but as it happens I think they will anyway, the bookies certainly think so. Sadly, I think sorting Brown's c0ckups out will fcuk them right up and we'll have the fcukin goon show back in again 5 years later :x

Ohh some gems there:

1. Governments, especially those who specialise in p1ssing away money, cannot "secure" economic recovery. Ever.

2. I rather thought it was the Bank of England that tried to do that.....

Best of all:

4. NHS plans £20bn emergency budget cuts

"The NHS is planning emergency budget cuts that could result in the loss of thousands of beds and tens of thousands of jobs, it has been reported.

According to documents obtained by The Daily Telegraph, the health service is planning £20 billion of cuts to cover the black hole left by the Government’s spending freeze.

The plans, released by ten Strategic Health Authorities, draw proposals for swingeing cuts across hospitals and health clinics. These could include the sacking of up to 10 per cent of staff in some areas of the country, cutbacks to ambulance services and greater use of the NHS Direct telephone helpline. "

So he thinks if we only owe half as much in 5 years' time, that's recovery?

2. Raise family living standards – with low mortgage rates, increased tax credits for families with young children, helping first-time buyers and relinking the state pension with earnings from 2012.
Where's the money coming from to pay for this?

3. Build a hi-tech economy through support for businesses and industry in creating a million new skilled jobs and the delivery of high-speed rail, a green investment bank and broadband access for all.
Except that their education policy churns out illiterates with no skills, the trains go on strike every public holiday, global warming is dubious at least, and broadband's fcuk all use if you can't afford a computer?

4. Protect frontline investment in policing, schools, childcare and the NHS – with a new guarantee of cancer test results within a week.
Protect? How? Again, where's the money coming from?

5. Strengthen fairness in communities through controlled immigration, guarantees of education, apprenticeships and jobs for young people and a crackdown on antisocial behavior – with victims entitled to take out civil injunctions, funded by the local public authority, if the police are not taking action within a set time.
So Council tax has just gone up again, partly to pay for police, and now he wants the council to pay to sue perpetrators and/or police? I wonder where the council will look for more money next year?

Overall judgement then? Brown is a buffoon who simply hasn't grasped that we have no money, no-one else is keen to lend us any, and with him and his fellow parasites in charge things aren't likely to improve. CNUT!

The thing to note is that these are coming from a man who went to the high court to prove that Labour doesn't have to keep to manifesto pledges

No more return to the days of "Boom and Bust" then eh....!

All that I see is 5 pledges to justify raisng even more stealth taxes, and giving it all away to the Idle, Single mothers and every other fcuker that can manage to walk halfway round the world to get here.

No thanks Gordon, you can bite my hairy ass if you think that you clown's are going to get another shot at the title. Cnuts.

Things could be a lot worse. When Harold Wilson was PM in the 70s, the government drafted contingency plans for "feeding stations" - soup kitchens in the street. It was thought that the pound would collapse and there would be a "wholesale liquidation of the economy".

I remember having to queue for hours to buy basics like bread, sugar and flour. Even candles were in short supply when the power cuts started.

If the Tories get a working majority at the election, they'll implement swingeing cuts in public expenditure to balance the books. If necessary, they'll bring in the IMF for a loan and accept the conditions the IMF impose.

If Labour get in, they will not be able to implement cuts in public expenditure. The unions wont let them. The only thing that's currently keeping the bailiffs out of Labour HQ is the money coming from Unite and the fact that Unite guaranteed Labour's debts last year. Add to that, over 100 union officials parachuted into safe seats and the next Labour government will effectively be a department of the TUC.


They wont bring in the IMF because they would stop Gordon spending billions on sun burned polar bears and fekkin' totem pole artists for the NHS.

If Labour win, I'd expect to see:-

- Union leaders who are neither MPs nor peers sitting in cabinet as in 1960s

- No redundancies or pay cuts for unionised civil servants

- Massive cuts in non-unionised expenditure e.g. defence, police etc

- Permanent 'quantitative easing'. Routine printing of money to pay the bills leading to hyperinflation (remember the 70s - a pay rise every 6 weeks).

- Civil war in the Labour party as the hard left try to oust Gordon

- Civil unrest as Harriet's 'equality' bill makes it illegal to be white, straight and Christian.

"Same old sh1t, different party. "
True Old Labour New Labour,

"'Education, Education, Education'"
It's KO Labour has all ready all but destroyed UK education system.

"To be honest things are that bad now that I am actually starting to hope that Labour win with a tiny majority so that they get lumped with the disaster they have created, and then with resulting chaos we get another election when they can no longer talk about how they are the only people to be trusted."

Ahg, sounds good but

All the things they should have done already. But didn't. And people will still vote for them. As someone erudite once said: "A country gets the government it deserves". I wonder what the voting turnout will be at the forthcoming election, 50%?

Some may think 'Ancient_Mariner' is joking.

As for the pledge to guarantee cancer test results in a week; the technicians, training, associated clinical staff and equipment will all be produced out of a hat by Brown the mad, bad magician!

What's the point of the first pledge ffs? Or do they really think the electorate is so thick that they can be duped into believing this is means cutting the national debt, rather than just adding to it a little more slowly?
 
#17
We've had a Labour government for the last 12 years, surely they should have delivered all this stuff. It reminds me of a battered wife being told "I'm sorry love, I really love you" before getting a right hander.

It is worse than that. He is promising to halve the amount we are borrowing, the debt keeps going up. This debt will continue to grow until people refuse to lend us any more.

After reading all the above, I have concluded that their is nothing I can add that would embellish the arguement.
Therefore it is with a heavy heart that I'm not going to add anything.
Not a single word, nothing, vilch in fact fcuk all.
Liebours 5 pledges are worth the same as they were in 97 (in real terms) and that don't add up to a hill of beans, they were a hill but with quantitive easing it is now a mound.
They are ALL liars, cheats, thieves and if in the private sector would have been sacked in 2001. I am getting to the stage of having an almost pathilogical hatred of anything Liebour.

Must go ..........................................meds. are here.
