Back to the bad old 30’s

The shadow of the great depression of the 30’s has returned to the UK. It’s now estimated that more than 13 million families are living below the poverty line & that number is expected to increase over the next 2 years. Things have got to the state that in 2011 charities opened food banks throughout the UK & now provide free food parcels containing 3 days rations for 128,687 families in the UK that can’t afford to feed themselves, the largest increase is amongst the low paid & those who have been made redundant. It’s now common for parents to go without food so they can feed their children. This is happening in one of the worlds richest countries. How can a Government that can afford the give the richest in the land an extra 5p in the pound stand back & claim we’re all in it together.

A situation may be desperate but never serious

Back to the bad old 30s

I blame the Government - erm, the one that was in for thirteen years - you know the one!!!!

The one which left office leaving a note saying ’There’s no money left.’ and by heck, they were right.

Alright Terry, When the Tories took over in 2010 they inherited the lowest inflation rate in Europe & the US, they inherited the lowest unemployment rate in Europe & they also inherited the lowest national debt in Europe (if you don’t believe me check it out, I have) what’s happened since then? Don’t forget Osborne himself admitted this in 2011 to the (televised) Treasury Select Committee he also admitted that in two years Germany would over take us, he got that wrong as well they did it in one year. It would seem that to the Tories the operation was successful but the patient died is a fair result.

Hhhmmm!!!!

Both of the major parties are populated by 100% gross incompetents. Labour is the party of theft and the Tories are the party of sleaze. The rest are simple zeroes!

The only current difference between the Reds and Blues is that the latter is going hell for leather to stuff the country faster than the Reds could ever achieve.

To assume that either is/was better than the other is incredibly naive. I am only grateful that I was never taken in by either of them from childhood onwards!
