  1. A sad indictment of a Tory government.

    I had always thought that Liberals politics supported the weak, the poor and those in dire needs, how wrong could I have been.

    This from Neil Kinnock.

    If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you. I warn you that you will have pain – when healing and relief depend upon payment. I warn you that you will have ignorance – when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right. I warn you that you will have poverty – when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay. I warn you that you will be cold – when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.
    I warn you that you must not expect work – when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies. I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light. I warn you that you will be quiet – when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient. I warn you that you will have defence of a sort – with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding. I warn you that you will be home-bound – when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up. I warn you that you will borrow less – when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.

    I wonder if any of our local MPs and Cllrs have read the letter?

    Probably not as they live in a very different world.


  2. The most sad and annoying thing about Kinnock’s statement was that he assisted what he knew about the hateful Tory agenda for this country as part of the Globalisation by capitalist who run the world economics and hence use the political party’s to do their bidding. He let his ego and ambition as declared outside the door of number 10 whose ego at 10 years of age -calimed he wanted to be prime-minister. He was a disaster and also the English racism towards the Welsh and Scottish (see the horrendous statements made about Gordon Brown and u will get the gist of what I am saying. However mighty mouth Kinnock and his ilk sold the soul of socialism to win over their enemy Tory media and look what it did to them They trashed them to pieces. The same hateful attacks on many groups of this society as Mudoch’s press and the rest of the Tory rags known as the media who claim they are good for democracy. No one appointed these angels of democracy-they are more devils of democracy! They present information from their proprietors point of view and most of their newspaper stories are contrived to perform their main role for capitalism and the establishment; which was similar to the fascist media that brought Hitler and co to power. Their role is to ensure that they cause mayhem and division in society. It is also a truism that if you want to control any society or group then -Divide and Rule is the name of their game.The sad thing is that so many Labour voters, and others, fall for this agenda and take up their racist -sexist and ageist divisive story-lines.Why else has the far Right conservative Nigel Farage with his UKIP party done so well in the polls-even though it has not got one MP in the country and yet is given more time on TV than other left minded parties such as the Greens.

    The real enemy is the Tory press. I am unsure if your readers of this site are aware that out of the mass newspapers in this country -80% is very conservative in ideology and belief mindsets and that includes most of the local newspapers. And it’s them that we must challenge and do what Liverpool has done to Murdoch’s- Sun newspaper -where it is not even stocked in shops-because of his horrendous coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster!

    The Kinnocks of this world would have been best to have declared real socialist policies as recently evidenced by the Mail newspaper absolutely disgusting level of depravity in attacking Miliband’s fatherto get at Miliband for daring to mention the word Socialism. Get real population of Rotherham and elsewhere-they bare so afraid of socialist beliefs -that is why they continuously attack it-as it actually creates a better and fairer society. (Check out Venezuela/Bolivia and what about Post WW2 Britian!

    There is an old proverb that is as true today as when it was first uttered.
    ‘You might as well be hung for a sheep than a lamb’
    Lets reach for the real alternative and take capitalism on and the horrible Tories and Tory press-
    ‘We are many and they are few’, The Tory ideology is one of selfishness and greed and they need us more than we need them. Though I am not proposing the same as usual political party system-we need to seek a participatory politics for the future.that involves in more than people voting every now and then. Lets reclaim the words socialism that is historic to this country.

    Oh by the way I believe the word Tory was coined by the scottish people in the 16th/17th century who were taking off their lands so as the English aristocrats could place sheep on the lands as wool was to that economy was more important than people. The word stood for robber -Nothing has changed -Capitalism and Tory upper class are trained to rob nad exploit the prejudices created by the Tory press- and UKIP will do the same 9they are Tory through and through. They are totally business representative party and by the way the majority of votes for that mad as a hatter -English democratic party in Doncaster came from the small business and those that own or rent market stalls. Many of these small businesses are the seeds of future capitalists as they only are out for profit and selfcentredness of their own existance in contrast to others. So as far as UKIP is concerned -if you read between the lines and listen to the fruitcake ideas that they utter or infer-they want britain to become a
    Coloniser and Empire white supremicists party as the Tory party was in the past Really-really UKIP are the far right of the OLd Tory party and people are considering voting for them.-you couldn’t make it up. Wake up folks and trust your parents and grandparents because they knew who the class enemy was and you should certainly know it to.


  3. I haven’t been on for a while. I have been in hospital long term so that makes me one of the people Iain Druncan Smith hates with a vengeance.

    IDS is not the brightest of Ministers – ask his colleagues – has no shame or compassion. He claims to be a Christian but like many Christians thinks only of self. Message to IDS think needle – camel and eye.

    His sham concern for the disabled and poor makes a mockery of his claims to care. With his wish list of who to punish next he represents all that is wrong with British politics. Thanks to him and ATOS thousands have died after being assessed fit for work. Families have suffered because of his disastrous reform of the Tax Credits, people have gone hungry and become homeless because of the Bedroom Tax and countless numbers of newly unemployed individuals have had to go without payment for months because of his totally useless and unworkable Universal Credit fiasco. (They trialled it with 5000 of the most work ready and the system sill collapsed in chaos – and still he won’t admit it).

    I rarely get personal with politics but the man is evil and a liar. He lied about the unemployment and sickness figures. He lied about the numbers of people his badly designed work programme helps and he lied about the number of months people appealing against ATOS have to wait for a decisions. *Try having multiple serious disabilities and cancer and have to wait 27 weeks for a reply) He has lied about the number of people that have died because of his obsessions and cuts. He has lied about the number of people being suspended from benefits when they simply attended pre arranged job / training interviews on signing days (Many arranged by the job centre) . He has lied about his past in the army ( bag carrier was he – not a real soldier), his education (Perugia University – as if) and work record (All state funded – apart from a year at Jaynes).He has lied about his expenses (he even claimed for a box of paper clips and a toilet roll). He lied about his wife’s paid role as a none existent secretary (Betsy Gate) and his departments descent into anarchy (Ask the Job Centres).,In short the man is a self serving liar.

    I look forward to the debate in the Commons in December in Parliament when he will be brought before the commons to explain some of his lies: the falsification of Government figures. The man makes RMBC look honest. But I won’t hold my breath he will be brought to book. The tory party and the system is morally corrupt and all I can see happening is IDS giving that odious smile, answering criticisms with a frog and a lie in his throat and walking away with the backing of his out of touch masters all the way back to his mansion. (Marry in to money hey – so IDS)

    Who will he target next? Pensioners for getting old? Anyone but the rich I guess. He’s only in it for the ministerial cars and pay – and oh – self promotion of course.

    I am sick and tired of him blaming and targeting the needy for being needy. Go after the bankers – they got us in the mire via their fiddling and fraud. Oh I forgot – the hedge fund rich bank roll him and his party



    I may disagree with many re policies but at least we debate. IDS listens to nothing but greed – sack him now!


    • Also glad to see you back and wishing you good health… and hear hear to your comment. (To be fair though, you could replace the name of IDS with most other senior people in the three main parties when it comes to duplicity, manipulation of figures, and punishing the poorest or sickest, and not even notice. If you think the 31,000 extra dead last winter was bad – just wait til next year. This winter will kill double that.


    • Hi Sal
      good to see you back!

      “IDS is not the brightest of Ministers ”
      “He is just not very intelligent” is the opinion of one of his more senior civil servants – who is also a “close family member”.
      You are spot-on about his credentials. He just fibbed and fibbed.
      IDS does not listen to greed, he just doesn’t listen, except maybe to what he hears inside his head.
      My “close family member” says he doesn’t even listen to the people he brought in as Spads, not even Philippa Stroud . (google her).
