Local government is now on the brink, the embers of social unrest are starting to smoulder in Newcastle upon Tyne. The city is going bankrupt, but the Neoliberals don’t give a shit. All the Tory local government minister, the shmuck Kris Hopkins, can come out with is: “Every bit of the public sector needs to do their bit to tackle the deficit left by the Labour government, including local government, which accounts for a quarter of all public spending. This government continues to deliver a fair settlement to every part of the country – north and south, rural and urban, metropolitan and shire. The reality is since 2010 budgets have been balanced, council tax has fallen by 11% in real terms and public satisfaction with local government has been maintained.” http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/nov/24/funding-crisis-newcastle-impossible-cuts-social-unrest The grotesque shit Pickles made a perverse point that his biggest cuts were in the poorest areas and conversely the smallest cuts were in the most affluent areas, but he shouldn’t have worried. By the time the British Lion stands up the entire country will be fucking angry. Its a similar picture in Liverpool: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-24348712 No wonder the Greens are starting to surge: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/11/who-are-green-partys-supporters-and-should-labour-be-worried
Pathetic Labour are right to be worried. Its not entirely the fault of Red Ed, its whatever shit told Red Ed that going for the central path and deliberately shafting the working class was a vote winner. But while people like John McDonnell, Graeme Morris and Neil Findlay are still around the Labour party is not quite dead in the water. The fact that Labour are unable to defend my class against the savaging of the bloated elite makes me bloody angry. For three fucking years I spent day after day looking at Red Ed face an open goal. For three years the arse instead scratched his balls. Now when I study the massive mess the rich have made of the lives of the poor, I am fucking ashamed of Labour. For years I would trawl through lists of MPs asking them to sign EDMs. Some MPs did sign EDMs, they were from all political parties, but the vast majority didn’t give a damn. For example when I asked Jim Fitzpatrick MP of Labour MP of Poplar and Bow to sign an EDM, his answer was just “no”. Now that the full picture is emerging of a social care crisis and the massive misery imposed on my class by the elite, its disgusting that this bunch of money grabbing careerists should be asking the 99% to vote for them again. Fuck off with your duck decoys and your heated horse paddocks. This is the reality: http://falseeconomy.org.uk/blog/1.5-billion-of-cuts-to-benefits-for-pregnant-women-and-babies Talking of women, here is how a senior Tory describes venemous trout Teresa May: “She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.” http://order-order.com/2014/11/24/owen-patters-on/ Yes – Tories love women – that’s why the dirty bastards want to fuck them right over. But don’t worry – here’s a seething Tory girl, Sarah Vine, aka Mrs Gove, in this snippet she talks of filthy DC and Mrs DC, alluding to a comment of talented Jack Monroe: “I watched those two work like Trojans to give Ivan the best quality of life possible. They never complained, they never felt sorry for themselves, or sought to place the blame for his many complex and severe disabilities on anyone else; they just got on with it, as so many carers in Britain do. Out of necessity, true; but mainly out of love.” http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2848092/So-cruel-hypocrite-SARAH-VINE-describes-food-writer-Jack-Monroe-sent-heartless-tweet.html Fuck off you fucking hypocrite, how dare you talk about carers, like Tories give a shit about care. Tories are vermin. Tories are the cancer of society. What exactly is it that Jack said – she said the fucking truth – that filthy DC used the death of his disabled son Ivan to hide himself while he privatised the NHS. Its disgusting that Sainsbury’s axed her: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2848092/So-cruel-hypocrite-SARAH-VINE-describes-food-writer-Jack-Monroe-sent-heartless-tweet.html but then Sainsburys made a mint for the Mockney schmaltz of ‘pukka panazanella’ Oliver: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/41517627788476267/ and bankroll Progress: http://www.leftfutures.org/2011/09/labours-party-within-a-party-latest-funding-figures/ Sainsburys is far from clean.
As we hit the iceberg the Government have their heads in the sand, indeed the newsletter of Sir Paul Beresford (25-11-14), Tory MP of the Mole Valley says it all. Sir Paul’s newsletter makes absolutely no mention of the effect of the cuts, its just seems to be financial shit. Cynical Sir Paul likes to talk about the ‘hard working people’, he likes to go on ad nauseam about financial shit: “The most recent figures show our plan is working with the Office of National Statistics reporting growth of 0.7 per cent for the third quarter of 2014. This means GDP was 3.0 per cent higher in the third quarter of this year compared. with a year earlier. It was pleasing to see from Barclays’ local data, that Mole Valley’s spending on charity increased by 10% compared to the same period last year. This shows that Britain’s hard work is paying off and that while the UK is not immune to weakness in the euro area and instability in global markets, we are on the right path.” All Tories pedal these lies in their newsletters. The quarterly bulletin of Tory nebbish Gareth Johnson MP of Dartford is similarly dismissive. This MP does not even mention the cuts, its all Europe, military action against IS and the Scottish referendum (25-11-14). Yes folk, its business as usual. Bastards like these pretend they can speak for the voiceless majority.
