    The Labour Assassins and The Tory victory.

    Firstly congratulations to The Tories and their overall majority. The people have spoken and the result is how it is. Some of the equations are quite frankly ridiculous though...The SNP with 1.5 million votes gaining 56 odd seats and UKIP with 4 million gaining 1 seat ...This way of voting has...

    Austerity.What is it good for? I'm tempted to reply absolutely nothing, but even if you believe it works, have a look at this short youtube video and see what you think. http://youtu.be/FmsjGys-VqA

    Have Britons lost faith in Osborne's austerity plans?

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2013/mar/09/britons-george-osborne-opinion-poll It would appear (according to a recent poll quoted in the above article) that only 20% of the British population still believe that the Government's austerity plans will work. I certainly have lost any faith I...

    The Nakid Truth

    Taken from: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Naked-Truth-CameronIs-he-the-worst-prime-minister-in-British-history/349274725156523 How close was David Cameron to having a week that was not a total disaster for himself or the government. I really thought he was going to make it by Thursday,But...
  8. France - The Road Not Taken

    Hollande promised an end to austerity when he was elected. Since then he has proposed fiscal tightening of 2% of GDP, the majority of which was through tax rises, particularly those aimed at high earners. The result is a collapsing money supply, EUR 53bn leaving the country in the last two...
  9. Poetry Corner

    I am a new poster who has spent a wee while observing some of the comings & goings on this site & it appears that we are a diverse bunch who are receptive to many topics & discussions. In order to address my own previous misdeamenours as the evil nanny in The Omen I have turned my hand to poetry...
  10. Autumn budget statement - The end of the line for Cameron/Osborne?

    I think that today's statement will end any hopes that the Tories will be in government after the next election. We do need a plan B. Unfortunately Osborne has backed himself into a corner where any sort of meaningful stimulus will be seen as a political defeat. If he's supposed to be some...
  11. Cameron, Clegg and Osborne

    I cannot think of a single reason (other than the fact that they are not Gordon Brown) that would motivate anyone to vote for a party in which any of these three hold sway. I voted Liberal in the last election and I feel like an absolute mug. If this utter circus continues on I fear that I...
  12. Austerity sandwich fillings.

    Here are a couple of my creations. Can anyone come up with a better sandwich filling for less than 50p? 1. Egg Mayo and half a bag of frazzles. 2. Laughing cow triangle and half a bag of pickled onion monster munch.

    Food For Thought.

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while, frankly the whole political arena is depressing. Even so, I've busy doing what I do. I thought I'd share some thoughts.... The Recession The recession was caused, in essence, by the collapse of the banking industry that took a gung-ho approach to...

    In Ireland, a Picture of the High Cost of Austerity

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/business/global/29austerity.html Ireland has slashed its budget, abandoned infrastructure and raised taxes to pay off with the deficit - with the result not only of deeper recession but an actual increase in borrowing. We're hearing a lot about the fate of...
