Gordonomics, life in Soviet Britain: The true cost of voting Labour.

From the Daily Mail.....Millions of families face a double blow to their budgets as the cost of living surges once again while wage packets are being frozen

Official inflation figures yesterday revealed an alarming jump in the cost of household goods.

The rise is driven by a surge in food prices, especially fruit and vegetables, as the weak pound pushes up the cost of imports.

But at the same time, an alternative measure of inflation which is commonly used to calculate pay rises has fallen to zero.

This means more and more employees are likely to see their pay frozen or even reduced, while the cost of living surges.

This 'double whammy' comes after unemployment reached two million last month, and close to 3,000 workers are being made redundant every day.
Hazel Blears cuts ties to Moslem spokesbeards......Ministers have severed links with Britain's leading Muslim group in a blazing row over extremism.

Communities Secretary Hazel Blears is angry that the Muslim Council of Britain has refused to condemn a senior member who signed a public declaration in support of Hamas.

The document, signed by the council's deputy secretary-general Daud Abdullah, also seemingly advocated attacks on the Navy if it tried to stop arms intended for Hamas being smuggled into Gaza.

Mrs Blears has said that until the MCB - which was once considered the Muslim group closest to Labour - takes a firm stance against Dr Abdullah, relations with the Government will be suspended....

Labour's relationship with the MCB - which acted as a key adviser to Tony Blair in the wake of the July 7 attacks - has lurched between being very close and frosty in recent years. In 2006, ministers decided to distance themselves from the group in frustration at the MCB's refusal to attend Holocaust Memorial Day.

Non jobs get pay rise whilst real jobs suffer...A series of inflation busting pay rises for millions of public sector workers was given the green light yesterday - at a time when private firms are freezing wages and cutting jobs.
In a sign that Labour is unwilling to take on the unions, the Government has agreed to honour increases of more than 2 per cent a year until 2011.

The three-year deals, which caused outrage yesterday among business leaders, were struck well before the recession took hold and there are mounting calls for them to be ripped up as a result of the economic meltdown.
The public is funded 100% by taxes, taxes gathered from those who have to work in the private sector. 

HSBC cutting jobs...Banking giant HSBC today announced 1,200 UK jobs could be cut following a review of its business.

The firm, which has around 58,000 staff in the UK, said the cuts would hit backroom areas such as IT and human resources, rather than front-line employees in branches.

The news follows the loss of 1,100 employees at HSBC's investment banking division - including 500 in Britain - last September.

Council tax bills have doubled under the National Socialist Labour Party....Council tax bills have more than doubled since Labour came to power in 1997, the Conservatives said today.
The Tories predict Band D taxpayers in England will be paying an average of £1,414 from April, up 105% from £688 in 1997-8, when the Government announces bills across Britain tomorrow.

In Wales, where property values were reassessed in 2005, Band D bills are expected to rise to £1,220 - up 146% on 1997.

A council tax freeze in Scotland has saved taxpayers the same bill hike but people living in Band D properties have still seen their bills go up by 47% since Labour took power, the Tories said.

Caroline Spelman, the shadow secretary of state for communities and local government, said: "As hardworking families face pay freezes and redundancies, council tax bills are soaring by yet another £40 this year thanks to Labour, on top of the massive rises which have already taken place since 1997.

"Council tax in England now takes £120 a month from people's pay packets and pensions.

Councils play the race card to the very people who pay their wages...An elderly couple who complained about mess made by travellers were told their views would be ignored because they broke race laws.

Rita and Norman Brookhouse say an unelected public body effectively branded them racists after inviting their views on where travellers' sites should be placed.

Mr Brookhouse, 73, and his wife wrote to their regional assembly saying they were concerned about the costs of cleaning up after travellers.

The assembly's director of planning wrote back saying their views were based on 'negative assumptions' and 'could be construed as offensive'.

Her letter cited the Race Relations Act 1976, saying it is unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of race, colour or ethnic or national group - and pointing out that Romany gypsies and Irish travellers are recognised by law as ethnic groups.

Mr and Mrs Brookhouse, of Havant, Hants, had written to the South East England Regional Assembly (Seera) calling for travellers to be charged a fee for using the sites.

'Reasonable charges must be made for use of sites so that local people know the travellers are contributing to the community finances,' they said in their letter.

'At present travellers give nothing to the community where they stay, indeed they create expense (rubbish clearance, etc. after they have departed).'

Seera says it has sent back 147 of the 1,129 letters it received in the consultation exercise on race relations grounds.

The letter the Brookhouses received from Seera's planning strategy director Catriona Riddell said: 'We have carefully considered all submissions. Unfortunately a number, including yours, contain statements that are based on negative assumptions about the gypsy, travellers and travelling showpeople communities and / or could reasonably be construed as offensive to such groups.

Yet more time serving non jobs. Maybe Catriona Riddell would like this my honest view of thieving gypo scum, an if she doesn't like she can go piss up a rope.

The authorities are happy to serve benefit drawing pikey scum who extort money with menaces, steal anything they can get their unwashed hands on,  live happily in their own shit and leave the taxpayers to pick up the tab. 

Should anyone complain about the state pissing away their hard earned money on said semi literate barbarians they are branded racist.

Gordon's problem is he thinks that the way to resolve the rapidly deepening economic crisis is via 'stimulus packages' with magic money plucked off the magic printing press.

With the ultimate of getting the banks to lend again and rebuild the very credit bubble and circumstances that landed us in the shit in the first place.

Like holding an alcoholics meeting in the local pub, you get full attendance but they all end up dead.

Labour = shit. Always has always will.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Regional Development Agencies are dangerously gathering all manner of powers; like being able to foister Gypo camps on people who have no democratic way of holding them acountable.

The Tories have pledged to abolish them but I'm not holding my breath.
I've met some people who work for our 'local' Agency, third-raters, all of them who would not be able to hold down a real job.
