Tory Right-To-Buy Will Only Drive Up Private Renting

No comments: Links to this post
Just when you are mourning the disconnectedness of the elites who run govt, they propose even much worse.

Waking up the other day to hear that the self-proclaimed 'Compassionate Conservatives' plans to sell off what is left of social housing stock, I cant but recoil from the consideration I have had in thinking them a possibility to vote. I would be mad to ever do that under this new circumstance.

With rising housing benefits bill, selling off social housing stock is obviously, not a wise avenue to reducing it soon. So much for a party that claims to be the guru of fiscal responsibility. Yet we know we know that they will not replenish the social housing stock because of their snobbish belief that those on benefits are scrungers. In fact for a govt with the shittest record of home building, the urge to sell what is left is a clear sign that it wont build more. Just like the prodigal son who just want to waste available treasures...

Potential Secrets Behind David Cameron's Presumption

No comments: Links to this post
According to Michael Fallon, David Cameron has been straight-forward and honest with British people when he said he would not serve a third term. Well, that's Mr Fallon's party-whip view, the voters, may think absolutely different.

What is bizarre with Mr Cameron's sputter is that he arrogantly made it like a corrupt third-world country leader who orchestrates elections to remain in power perpetually. In fact, it was a shame for a British Prime Minister make such a statement, akin to what you would expect of Robert Mugabe or Saddam Hussein to say. It is utterly undemocratic for him to predict two elections before they even happen.

Come the 7th of May 2015, British voters would go to the polls; but as it now stands, we may as well not. Because Cameron has declared that he will win; probably no matter how we vote. And he would do the same in 2020 at which time he will snub our vote and move on to, perhaps, who knows what.

However, for realities' sake, any of the following may have been behind this juvenile rhetoric.

Yellow Box; A First In UK's Politics

No comments: Links to this post

On Wednesday 19th March, the UK Coalition govt presented the year Budget in the House of Commons. Traditionally, that Budget is an agreed action plan of the incumbent govt; meaning that all Ministers, from the Prime Minister to the least minister - whoever that is; bet its the LibDems - agreed to that Budget. Its a unanimous voice and plan of govt.

However, while we all believe the above to be the case, the Liberal Democrats, who are Coalition partners with the Conservatives for close up to 5 years now, sunddenly woke up on Thursday and foisted a new one us: they have an alternative Budget!

Sugar! This is never heard of. In fact, it sounds like politics in Narnia Land. And it is. But no shocks, only the LibDems are capable of such deceit and arrant mischeive, it takes little to comprehend their folly.
