Miliband Sings The Labour Song At The London Demo!

I never cease to be amazed at the gullibility of the British voting public. An estimated 400,000 people came out in London yesterday to protest at the government cuts to services, and once again a labour leader sang the same old song of labour virtue. This time it was Ed Miliband who told the crowd that Labour was with them and the government was wrong. From the cheers it would seem everyone has forgotten already that it was Labour that got us into this mess in the first place.

Empty Pockets!

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence should know that you cannot spend money you haven’t got without eventually having to pay for it. That is exactly what Labour did during their period in power and now its time to pay the piper. It’s always the same old story in British politics where one government spends like there is no tomorrow just to be popular with the voters, and when the next one comes along and tries to sort out the mess they are labelled the bad guys!

Two Men With A Big Headache

I can guess that at the next election everyone will vote Labour and bring in another spending spree that we cannot afford, and once again the Conservatives will be caned for trying to sort out the mess. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Conservative, I owe allegiance to no political party, but it seems to me that every time Labour goes off the rails the Tories have to try the impossible, i.e. clean up the mess and still get re-elected.

Whoever has to clean up the economic debacle that is Labour’s legacy will have a rough ride, even more so at this time in our history because of the recession following the banking crisis. Without doubt, unpopular decisions will have to be made, and it is certain that if we as a country wish to survive this period, we will all have to tighten our belts. I am sure the Cameron/Clegg duo will do their best, but the problem is huge, make no mistake!

For more than a decade Labour were throwing money right left and centre in their efforts to remain in power, and they succeeded. Now we have to pay for it.

The biggest mistake they made, was to try and turn our country into a multicultural society by bringing in hundreds of thousands of immigrants every year, all of whom were given handouts for everything from food to extravagant housing, all paid for by the tax payer. And what about all the extra expenses incurred by local government services in an effort to find them all housing, food and jobs?

As we have found out over the years, multiculturalism doesn’t work! All it has done is put a massive burden on the tax payer and driven the country into debt. Who can guess how many tens of billions were thrown away on this futile plan which is still costing us dearly, even today? 

The banking crisis was another thing that cost us dear. The writing was on the wall for all to see ahead of time, but unfortunately ‘Jolly’ Gordon Brown had forgotten how to read!!!

What the people of Britain seem to forget is that it is not the current governments fault we are having to take such measures, it is the likes of the that idiot Miliband who so enjoyed playing to the crowd yesterday.

Miliband Speech to the crowd:

"So How Are You Going To Fix Things Ed?" "Er....Pass".

I, as well as several commentators, picked up on the fact that while the ‘Labour cockerel’ was crowing, he was careful not to mention how Labour would handle the crisis if they were in power. But there again, at times like these they never have! All he could say was ‘they would spread the recovery over more years’. For that you can read: they would go back to their old ways and never get it sorted.

It is unfortunate there is a necessity of some urgency in getting the economy back on its feet, for the longer we flounder in the deep end, the harder it is to climb out. Something ‘Dear Eddie’ needs to learn.

I will be the first to agree that the government does not have everything right, and there may be better ways of getting the economy back on its feet, but you have to admit, that our various social services are huge money wasters, and always have been.

Successive governments have been pouring money into our education system, but the kids just leave school dumber. They pour money into the national health system and more patients contract deadly illnesses in hospital than ever before. They pour money into social services and we now have entire families that have lived their whole lives on welfare of one kind or another. Unfortunately, these are problems that take time to tackle, but the government needs swift action to get things back on track before things get worse.

"Yes! I did say no more boom and bust, and I meant it!"

If the British voter was to take a dispassionate look at the situation as a whole, I would hope they could see that the current measures are necessary and it is far better to have one or two years of austerity so that growth can begin, rather than the Labour alternative of more of the same! Labour will never solve the current crisis, because in the past they never have, and what is more, they never will! What was Gordon Brown’s proud boast when he was Chancellor: No more boom and bust! Well, this time Labour ‘bust’ us as never before!

Tighten your belts a notch people and let the government do its job before its too late. Give them a chance to go after the free-loaders and parasites that live off the backs of hard working people. I am sure they will also ween out all the money-wasting problems in national and local government if we give them a chance. It all takes time!
