Plan B for the hopeless George Osborne

Post by Ivan on Tue Oct 18, 2011 9:45 pm

First topic message reminder :

This Tory-dominated government claims there is no alternative to austerity. Below, nine leading economists, including a Nobel Prizewinner and one of the Chancellor's own advisers, say that's wrong - and offer a different path:-

Cut VAT back to 17.5%
Christopher Pissarides
Agree financial transaction tax
Jeffrey Sachs
Reduce NI contributions
David Blanchflower
Print money for the public
Sushil Wadhwani
Start a national investment bank
Robert Skidelsky
Lift the cap on immigration
Jonathan Portes
Lend directly to small businesses
George Magnus
Launch a green new deal
Ann Pettifor
Set up a recovery fund
Christopher Allsopp

For the details of each of those suggestions, click on the links on this page:-

Britain will probably never see a Chancellor who simplifies the tax system. The Tolley's Yellow Tax Handbook now stands at 10,134 pages over four volumes, up from 4,998 pages in two volumes in 1997.

Yet again Gideon has used his favorite word "Could"..This time on Airport shops....He is setting up a 'Review' in to the practice of the shops keeping VAT rather than passing it on to the customer......

This comes on the day the FSA has announced that it is ditching its 'Review' in to the practices of the big banks, prior to and following the Crash........The reason given being that each bank faces different challenges.........Strange how all hospitals are treated the same no matter what the differences in its patients needs are......

Re: Who does Gideon Osborne think he is kidding?

Post by Ivan on Sun Mar 06, 2016 11:49 am

George Osborne would fail his economics GCSE – he can’t even get the basics

From an article by Will Hutton:-

The sequence of remarks Osborne made in a BBC interview at the G20 meeting in Shanghai are just plain wrong. “The country can only afford what it can afford”, he declared. Wrong. Governments may have budget constraints, countries are different. And, in any case, affordability is not an absolute but contingent on interest rates and expected growth. Affordability at near zero interest rates is different from affordability at 10% interest rates.

Then came “storm clouds” and the “economy is smaller than we thought” and “we’ve got to root our country in the principle that we must live within our means” in order to ensure “economic security”; Osborne felt he had to cut government spending again towards the end of this parliament. Wrong. This will make the storm clouds more threatening, only partially mitigated by his promise to soften the blow through focusing on “efficiency savings” and perhaps reducing or deferring the target for the budget surplus.

To cap it all, Osborne declared that “the last time we didn’t live within our means we were right in the front rank of nations facing economic crisis”. Wrong. The banking crisis developed independently of government fiscal policy. It had nothing to do with public expenditure and public deficits and everything to do with the way global banks had extended vast amounts of credit to dodgy borrowers with very little core capital of their own to act as a buffer. Osborne is busy relaxing the already not very onerous proposed reregulation of our banks. It is a City commonplace that sooner or later there will be another financial crisis because the system’s failings have not been addressed.

Weimar Germany after the Great War of 1914-1918 was forced into extreme austerity by the victorious allied powers, and inter alia suffered massive unemployment. In the early 1930s, a change of government scrapped austerity measures and the German economy quickly became the powerhouse of Europe.

Will the British Tory Party ever come to the realisation that keeping all the money for their pals is counter-productive?

Where is George they all cry.

To send a deputy to speak for him today was the complete act of a coward.  How he can continue as Chancellor with his budget ripped to shreds already is beyond me.

As Dennis Skinner said, the Chancellor has messed up 8 times already, only a cat has 9 lives.

Me too HA. They have had to backtrack on so many things, he'll be twisting and turning so much they'll be able to name a new dance for him.

It's amazing how many of the Tories who voted for the disability cuts are now saying they are against them, obviously they don't vote for their constituents in the HOC, just do as the party tells them. Either that, or they are lying through their teeth and we wouldn't want to think that, would we!

" I hope the Labour wolves are ready to rip him apart."

Alas ! Recent experience seems to suggest that opposition from Labour to any Tory crime is all too weak and ineffective, resulting in the perpetrators of the offending policies believing that they can press ahead with ever more disgraceful steps with impunity.

It seems to me that if one wants a good articulation of true opposition, accompanied by a suitable choice of fluent, biting and highly-effective chastising words, then look no further than the SNP...

Nothing weak and ineffective about this:

Watch Jeremy Corbyn tear apart George Osborne's Budget as culmination of 'six years of failures'

The Labour leader has described the Budget as the culmination of "six years of failures"

Corbyn calls on PM to let go of Osborne over budget turmoil

Labour slams chancellor for refusing to respond in person in Commons over budget that ‘fell apart within two days of being delivered’

Jeremy Corbyn has urged the prime minister to tell his “great friend” George Osborne to “find something else to do” in the House of Commons, as he tried to turn the civil war at the heart of the government to Labour’s advantage by calling for the chancellor’s head.

The Labour leader said on Monday that for the first time in his long experience of parliament, “a budget has fallen apart within two days of being delivered”, and it was up to Cameron to explain to the chancellor that he should consider his position.

Good day to hide bad news.
He has to get the budget passed by HoC first though.

This made me want to slap his face for him, he's a disgrace

Watch: Osborne’s disgraceful response when asked to apologise to disabled people (VIDEO)



Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell asked George Osborne to apologise for his treatment of disabled citizens in a parliamentary budget debate on Tuesday. He followed numerous MPs, including Yvette Cooper, who argued that the Chancellor should apologise for his budget decision to cut the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) support for disabled people.

The government has since made a U-turn on this core budget policy.

Yet Osborne was much more interested in something he found amusing on Michael Gove’s phone than in the concerns of disabled people across Britain

It felt like watching a couple of schoolboys disrespect a teacher by ignoring and laughing at them. But with these schoolboys, it is not just homework at stake. It is the wellbeing and independence of the most vulnerable people in our country.

http://www.thecanary.co/2016/03/22/watch-osbornes-disgraceful-response-asked-apologise-disabled-people-video/

I'm quite sure that Georgy Porgy and Gove had set that up before hand.

George Osborne’s ratings plunge after Budget and Jeremy Corbyn is more popular than PM

Post by sassy on Thu Mar 24, 2016 5:03 pm

George Osborne's ratings have plunged, according to exclusive polling taken before and after his disastrous eighth Budget.

The full scale of the damage is revealed in Ipsos MORI research showing public hostility has grown towards the Chancellor, his policies and even David Cameron.

Among the findings that will agonise Mr Osborne’s supporters:

Six in 10 people are dissatisfied with Mr Osborne, including a third of Conservative supporters, compared with 46 per cent of the public in the month before the Budget.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who led opposition to cuts in disability benefits, has enjoyed a surge in his ratings, overtaking David Cameron.

Mr Osborne’s Budget was the most unpopular since 2010 for the country, with majorities saying it was bad for the country and bad for the next generation.

The biggest negative gap since 2010 has opened between the proportion of people who think government policies will improve the economy in the long-term and those who think they won’t.

The Conservative lead over Labour has narrowed to just two points, at 36 per cent — down three points — to 34 points, up one point.  

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/osborne-s-ratings-plunge-after-budget-and-corbyn-is-more-popular-than-pm-a3210916.html

I think Corbyn's tactics of remaining calm, telling it as it is and not resorting to the nastiness indulged in my Cameron, is paying off.  People are seeing him as a steady pair of hands who wants the best for the most, continues to stand up for what he believes in regardless of the shit the media throw at him and doesn't play the establishment game.

The subject of the message didn’t really merit a new thread, partly because we already had one about George Osborne, and partly because the shelf-life of the thread would be very short. We also have a thread for discussing the latest polls:-

You are better off here Sass - stricter rules are fine -our other place has gone to the dogs with racists and far right extremists.
Corbyns quiet calm is really starting to unsettle Dave - when he gets riled he turns lobster red which is becoming more common.
Osborne is his main liability - although May is making a good attempt as well with here inaction in the face of adversity.

sassy. You have nothing for which to apologise; I suppose all forums have different ways of doing things. Thank you for not taking offence!  Very Happy

At what point a quotation becomes a breach of copyright is a grey area, but our policy has always been that about 15 lines is the safe maximum length. Rather than just post a link, it’s probably better to post a few lines of an article (in italics, to show that they’re not your own words), in the hope of whetting the appetite of readers. Then add the link, so that people can read the rest of the article if they wish. Something like this…..

Osborne needn’t say sorry – after all his Budget was just a suggestion

From an article by Mark Steel:-

We all make mistakes. Some of us put cardboard packaging in the wrong recycling box. And some of us try to take £4 billion off the disabled. We can’t say sorry for everything, can we? In any case, Osborne’s explained the reason for these cuts is to build a strong economy, and there’s no greater sign of a strong economy that someone with spina bifida laying in their pyjamas for three years because we’ve made redundant the carer that used to get them dressed. And, to be fair, there was an element of genius about his Budget. Because up until last week, it was believed to be impossible to come up with benefit cuts so appalling that Iain Duncan Smith would oppose them. Osborne should receive the credit due for overturning such a natural law.

His problem was the reaction from everyone else as well as Duncan Smith. The Conservatives seem to believe their own newspapers and assume they have no opposition, so they can do whatever they like, as most people will think “I don’t mind that the Tories have stopped my disabled aunt going to the toilet, because at least their leader sings the National Anthem”. But on this issue, so many people were furious that the government had to abandon huge chunks of their plans, and Nicky Morgan adopted the imaginative line that the entire Budget was “just a suggestion”.

Since departing government, Gideon has apparently scored half-a-million from giving talks to businessmen.



What's the dynamic of that?  Is he giving away Treasury Secrets?  Helpful hints on tax-avoidance?  How to make half-a-million by telling expense-account Captains of Industry what they want to hear? Or just humiliating all the stand-up comics who only get standard Equity rate?

I think we should be told.
