Future generations won't have any public services because the Tories will have ruined them by trying to run them as a business. And they sure as hell won't solve the banking crisis or introduce the tough legislation that is needed - because they are the party of "enterprise" and won't do anything to harm the profitability of their rich chums. Even this week's "moral" stance on tax avoidance will be forgotten by the time the Finances Bill comes to be drafted.The Angry Jock wrote:My views on this subject are well publicised on this site. You obviously believe that we live in some sort of Labour created eutopia where anyone can do what ever they please and the exchequer should just stick it on tick for eternity ... it's this benefit loving, success punishing mindset that makes me agree with James A and consider emigration, we're tired of being bent over by semi-socialists who couldn't run a bath let alone a government.merman wrote:I'm not saying New Labour were perfect or did things right. But I'd rather have more Labour than a Tory government that ... caps the rate for families and forces them to move out of areas where they are established.
Public services have got out of hand and need brought under control otherwise future generations may not have any.merman wrote:The Tories were forced into raising tax thresholds by their Coalition partners. But they continue to raise indirect taxation at the same time as taking money away from the vulnerable. The spending cuts will hurt our public services for generations, while the Tories trumpet about increased choice.
The NHS, social care, pensions... None of them are safe with Tories in power. I've never said that the Government should borrow more than is responsible but the current policies of the Tories are prolonging the economic problems not solving them.
And worst of all, those who genuinely need benefits and support from the State will now be scapegoats and told "get up and work". The Tories of the Eighties created the generation who now live on benefits in deprived areas and cannot escape.
