Whatever happened to 'Broken Britain'......did Dave manage to fix it?

Post by astradt1 on Fri Jul 27, 2012 11:21 am

Remember how before the last election, you know before there were mass demonstrations and riots, when we had 10,000 more police officers and more nurses and soldiers, when more people were in work, Dave kept shouting about 'Broken Britain' and how it need to be 'Fixed'.

Well now Two years on has he managed to 'fix' it and if so how would we know?

Why is he not shouting about his success?

Dave's busy schmoozing Olympic VIPs and the like just now. His prime objective is to ensure that none of our distinguished guests make the mistake of thinking that he's the famous Boris - or vice versa!

Amongst the news from MSN :
"A Peterborough MP was attacked by a man who he attempted to stop vandalising a bus shelter in the city.

Conservative MP Stewart Jackson said he tried to make a citizen's arrest on the man after he threw a bottle of beer at the shelter on Broadway on Saturday.

But the man then kicked Mr Jackson, who had been shopping with his wife and daughter.

Cambridgeshire Police said a 20-year-old man had been arrested.

Mr Jackson said he saw a man throw a full bottle of beer at the shelter which shattered the glass.

"I thought any of the shards could have injured a woman or a child so I tried to make a citizen's arrest," he said." ( my emphasis)

Obviously they were the type of glass shards which could not injure a man, then? It's good to see that Tory MPs are still of the view that women need to be accorded special consideration. Or patronised, perhaps....?

The picture does say “I’m starving your children”.

When right-wing headbangers start eulogising about Thatcher’s ‘achievements’, remind them that under her lousy government the UK had the highest level of child poverty in the developed world. However, Cameron seems quite keen to take the deprivation even further.

You forgot "Je ne regrette rien", which was Lamont's response to pouring millions of pounds down the drain on 'Black Wednesday' in 1992, no doubt partly because of the wonderful advice he received from his special adviser, David Cameron.

Still, abject failure didn't stop Lamont from demanding that MPs should be paid a lot more, and it didn't stop that pillock Hague from using his right as Leader of the Opposition to put Lamont (another apologist for Pinochet) in the House of Lords.

Is Cameron's Britain what we fought for in the war?

90-year-old RAF veteran, Harry Leslie Smith, says he’s too old to fight those who seek to wreck the civilisation he and millions of others shed blood, sweat, and tears for in the Second World War:-

“After the war we revolutionised the western world….We knew the cost of not creating a just society was the end for democracy, and a life sentence of misery for too many people in our country. We knew the price of failing to create and maintain universal health care was a return to a two-tier society where the few held dominion over the many.

Today, however, in a world where our reservoirs of wealth are as deep and enormous as all the mighty rivers of the world combined, our politicians, financial institutions and megalithic industries tell us we can no longer afford these human rights that men sacrificed their lives for: the freedom to live with dignity in a compassionate society. We are told by those in charge that we can no longer live with luxuries like healthcare, proper state funded pensions, decent wages, trade unions and most aspects of our social safety network.

At 90, I am too old to stand in demonstrations with a placard denouncing this madness. All I can do is bear witness to my times and our heroic struggle fought so long ago against Hitler and against men who would wreck the foundations that made civilisation tolerable and decent for its inhabitants. The problem with society, today, is not lack of money or debt but lack of ideas, lack of commitment by our government to realise that its constituents are the people, not city bankers and hedge fund managers whose loyalty is to their ledger books rather than to the community.”

I find little difficulty in associating the present Government with General Principles AGAINST which Britain fought during the 1939-45 War.
Toryism is no friend to the ordinary decent working people of the UK, and during the past three years of Coalition government has effectively been waging war upon the Quality of Life previously enjoyed by the majority.

Its not Europe that is the real problem tittf its this ass hole of a Tory gov't that is the UKs problem, the only reason the Tories want us out of europe is so that they govern every last part of our life like having to work 70 hours per week instead of the now 40, or the junior doctors having to work 96 hours per week putting there patients lives at risk and not one workers rights including working in UNSAFE place. So if the people of the UK have any sense they will go for staying in Europe with changes to the betterment of the UK people.

Unbelievable govt comment on rocketing Foodbank nos - 'no link to benefit reforms'

Post by skwalker1964 on Sat May 18, 2013 6:25 pm

Unbelievable govt comment on Foodbanks [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I often pick up on interesting exchanges from the Commons for this blog. However, this week I came across one which went way beyond ‘interesting’ and well into the territory of ‘he can’t possibly have really just said that’.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A typical foodbank collection – given by hard-up people for the even poorer

I’ve written before about Foodbanks, and the appalling gall of David Cameron in trying to claim the exponential rise in their numbers as an expression of his ‘Big Society’. Cameron has also been incredibly disingenuous when criticised about this rise, claiming that

The use of food banks went up tenfold under the last Labour government.

As Channel 4′s Full Fact has pointed out, the tenfold increase during 6 years under the last Labour government in the number of people receiving help from Foodbanks (by around 36,000 to 40,898) is dwarfed by the increase of 87,799 (to 128,697) that took place in just the first 2 years of the coalition government.

But even that is nothing compared to what happened in the most recent year, 2012-13. The already massive number of over 128,000 almost tripled in a single year to almost

350,000

All this is bad enough – but it’s not what I’m talking about as unbelievable. To claim these numbers as a success should be unbelievable – but it’s all too easy to believe of David Cameron.

Here’s what made my jaw drop. It’s a passage from the Hansard record of Commons debates last Tuesday, 14 May 2013. During a debate on the cost of living, Labour MP Huw Irranca-Davies challenged the government on the exponential rise in the number of people relying on help from Foodbanks:

Against the glowing backdrop that the Secretary of State paints, why do I now have a food bank in every single village in my constituency when there was only one three years ago? Why has there been a quadrupling of food banks under this Government? His record cannot be that good, given the backdrop of the inexorable rise of food poverty.

As we’ve seen, Mr Irranca-Davies actually understated the situation. The latest figures were released at the end of April, so he should have said that Foodbank use has gone up almost nine-fold under this woeful government. Close to Cameron’s misleading claim of a tenfold increase under Labour, but 9 times a far larger number to begin with. Perhaps Mr Irranca-Davies didn’t have the latest numbers, but it’s a pity he missed the opportunity to confront the government with its even greater culpability.

Government minister Ed Davey gave his staggering response:

People who run food banks are doing an extremely good job and deserve credit for their work. However, it is completely wrong to suggest that there is a statistical link between the Government’s benefit reforms and the provision of food banks. It is good that people are helping others. I hope the hon. Gentleman supports that.

Not only does Davey repeat Cameron’s hubris by claiming the increase in Foodbank use as a social good – he claims that the rise has nothing to do with the government’s benefit ‘reforms’.

I have news for Mr Davey. The number of people coming to my local Foodbank for help doubled overnight when the government’s latest ‘reforms’ kicked in at the beginning of April, including the cancellation of the ‘crisis loan’ programme.

There can no doubt whatever in the mind of any reasonable, honest person that the government’s persecution and impoverishment of those who are already poor and disadvantaged is directly responsible for the massive increase in the number of people in such desperate straits that their only option is to accept the humiliation of admitting to strangers that you literally have no food to put on the table for yourself or your family.

That ordinary people have galvanised themselves to save others from starvation is amazing, and heartwarming.

That our government is increasing the number of people who need saving by around 350 people per day for the whole of last year (a number that unquestionably continues to accelerate) should have the Tories and LibDems cowering in shame – and make them unelectable forever. Instead the government is claiming ‘It’s nothing to do with us, guv‘.

Anyone who would think for even a nanosecond of voting for either party in the next general election needs either their head or their heart examined – or both.

Good post skywalker it just shows how brainless this tory gov't really is they think this is the big society that so many WORKING people have to depend on food banks, after going out to work all week and still have to look to food banks so that they can put food on the table for there family it is nothing more than shameful.

What Cameron will not tell you is there is a food bank in his constituency, he did try and lie about this when asked he said there had been one in his constituency for FIVE YEARS and he had visited it and spoke to the man that ran it LIAR he announced this in the H.O.C, someone from the food bank in Witney got in touch and told the truth the food bank in Scam..er..ons constituency had only been open just over ONE year and he had never been near it because it is a FEMALE that runs it he is nothing but a BARE FACED LIAR that needs a tin of BRASSO & duster to polish his BRASS NECK.

Regarding food banks:

We clearly can't afford to give everybody a reasonable standard of living......for goodness sake! It might mean some people have to pay more tax, or receive a pay cut, in order to reduce wage differentials and replace the minimum wage with a living wage. And it might mean some people have to take fewer holidays, buy slightly cheaper plonk, reconsider that second home, and cut some other little luxuries.

And that just wouldn't do! Would it?

Totally works for me - I'll even give up my boat if the millionaires will consent to pay proper tax
