The balloon's gone up

You may well ask why I am sitting here surrounded by bits of torn, bitten and shredded newspaper. It's because I couldn't cope with the draft of economic detritus being described on the front page.

These people who are paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to govern the country; a system which allows them houses, travel, subsidised food and drink as well as a nice salary and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that they have done a fucking awful job. I'm trying to think of how they could have made it any worse, even if they'd tried.

The banks are insolvent, hundreds of thousands of people are losing their jobs, there has been no improvement in schools and the NHS, we're engaged in a war in Iraq we had no reason to be in which has cost many lives, public borrowing is at a mind blowing level, the lights will go out in a few years time because we have some greenieweenies who think running around with a child's windmill on a stick will power the country and, even worse, millions of people will still vote for the cunts which shows a serious lack of intelligence and survival instinct in the voting population.

The other Miliband today outlined the new UK energy policy which will ensure the UK doesn't break the mad EU rules on carbon emissions

Tax cuts would be a wonderful stimulus to the economy in just the right place. Forget government spending because there are so many examples of the nauseating waste which occurs every day with our money: NHS computer systems costing £40bn according to some and the Olympics to name but two. This isn't a good way to redistribute income and add an injection into the National Income equation because it's just been thrown around rather than allocated to companies who are efficient.

Lord Mandelson, the Business Secretary, spoke of the need for “structural adjustments later on” and Mr Brown himself accepted that the Pre-Budget Report (PBR) stimulus would be “temporary”.

Their remarks reflected the strong Treasury view that next week’s tax cut and spending package from the Chancellor, Alistair Darling, must be accompanied by evidence that he intends to get soaring borrowing back on course over the medium term. That should mean tax rises, spending cuts or both.

Once again, they completely fail to see the point of tax cuts.

They aren't supposed to be used for short term vote winning, you arse, they are used because people are better at spending their own money than the government is, and as such when you cut taxes you increase revenues to the Treasury because the country as a whole does better off. Which is why this concept of 'when things are better we'll stick them up again' makes me want to run around sticking sharp things into people who are trying to ruin our lives for us. They've said themselves that tax cuts are a stimulus so why oh fucking why would they not want that to continue?

Is what we have here the definitive evidence that Nu Labour hates us and wants us all to die in abject misery with no food, shelter, jobs or lights just a van from the government occasionally driving around like some statist ice-cream van delivering occasional sustenance?

And Cameron. What the fuck is he playing at? No unfunded tax cuts? Listen, sunshine; with the debts we've been saddled with for bailing out these banks; and why is the British tax payer having to fork out for, say, HSBC branches in other countries? Why not just UK deposits? we won't be having any 'funded' tax cuts for many years to come and that just highlights that the Tories, once the party of the economy, now have no right to lay claim to that legacy.

They have shat on Thatcher's work and clearly have been taken in by the NUT lobby proclaiming from the rooftops that her reforms, which made this country a success, were 'terrible'.

It's time to set the emigration plans in motion: when I live in a country whose Treasury Bills have a higher risk rating than a bank they're bailing out, I know we're fucked. And not in the 'passionate love making with David Miliband' kind of way.

If it makes you feel any better, am also developing something of a crush on David Mitchell.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

Oh, it does. It means I'm suddenly in with a shout. :o)

Trixy said...

You don't look anything like David Mitchell. His hair is completely different, for one.

My hair doesn't look like the photo unless I spend hours on it.
