Yesterday the shadow defence spokesperson announced she had every intention of ditching our Nuclear deterrent. The shadow Chancellor announced that he had no intention of “Living within our means “ ever. The Parliamentary Labour Party were widely reported as having literally shouted abuse at the hated leadership who, in return, have threatened them with de-selection during the boundary changes, replacing moderates with quasi Communist Corbynistas.
Corbyn`s Party within a Party “Momentum” was launched this week, allegedly as a vehicle for deselection of moderates and signalling the final victory of Militant over what was the Labour Party.
No amount of contempt I can pour on this disgrace to the history of Labour can match that poured by Labour MPs and Labour supporters watching their Party become a shambolic joke .

Despite a;ll this the latest Polls show CON 38%, LAB 34%, LDEM 7%, UKIP 11%, GRN 3%.
The four point Conservative lead is the smallest since the election.
How can this be ? What sort of person is seriously thinking of voting for this Party? What on earth will become of us if they were to win with support from the SNP?
These are terrifying times and I can only suggest we store tinned food and arm ourselves, for truly the apocalypse is upon us !

What a load of nonsense. Really?!! It's this kind of scaremongering from the Tory toffs & their right-wing media that has people frightened into voting them in again so they can impinge their Thatcherist ideals onto vulnerable people's lives.
No country lives within it's means. As interest rates are so low this would be the best time to borrow and get infrastructure going, get people working, not claiming benefits & paying taxes. Plus more money to spend in our economy. We should have the biggest & best green industry in the world being a small nation island surrounded by water but the tories cancelled the green investment bank & green subsidies - so short-sighted. This was to be 'the greenest government ever' - 'Vote Blue, Go Green', Cameron with the huskies? Yet another pledge broken by the tories. Why does Cameron never get picked up on all the promises he breaks like Nick Clegg did. Because most of the media are in his pocket.

No need to store food. Lots of food banks about in Tory Britain.

The sum of international lending is zero where do you think it comes form “the old magic money tree”?

'As interest rates are so low this would be the best time to borrow and get infrastructure going'
We are borrowing £75 bn per annum with Nat Debt at about 70% we can only do this because interest rates are so low and why do you think, that despite our appalling debts we can borrow for nothing ? Thats right its because we are making slow progress towards correcting the situation.
You may think dumping an interest rate crisis on mortgage payers is a joke but it is not a joke for ordinary families as for Corbyn throwing cash at white elephant banana-republic "infra structure" projects ...words fail me, how old are you ?

On your Green stuff cry your eyes out into your Guardian. Other people have children to worry about and bills to pay.

What that poll shows is that despite all the misleading rhetoric from the panicky Tories, 34% of people polled (And don't forget that pollsters are essentially guessing as the last election showed us) think austerity is a terrible idea and we don't need nuclear weapons. There are a lot of people who have had enough of our current brand of identikit politics with Labour and the Tories being essentially the same brand of self-serving millionaires looking to help out their rich mates and line their own pockets. Corbyn represents a significant change in the status quo and right now a lot of people probably don't even care about the details of his policies, they just want some, any kind of change.

Also you might be sick of reading rubbish but if you have kids to worry about do you not think worrying about them having clean air to breathe and a bit of dry land to live on here and there is important too?

Yup. That's classic Newman. The confusion between the accent grave and the apostrophe is the clincher. Another clincher is the array of made up factoids. The Shadow Defence Secretary has said nothing of the sort and when, where, why did McDowell make a firm commitment to "never live within our means". Drivel from cloud cuckoo land. What on earth is the point of going online day after day to waste your time writing endless drivel?

Beyond the comically paranoid drivel, it appears there's a section of society prepared to ignite some kind of civil war rather than allow the democratic process to return a government that isn't a Neo Liberal one. Now that's something we should be worried about.
It's never going to happen though, the right wing already have too much unassailable control over our lives. The media, the justice system, party funding and of course, government itself; pretty much every institution is systematically geared towards subjugation of the plebs for the financial benefit of the ruling elite.

Given PN's job is to scare people into buying insurance (money from the magic money tree, perhaps), perhaps we should tag all of his posts with an advert for his services.

Talking of scary Poles. I find their surly, racist and homophobic attitude quite unnerving coupled with their innate ability to wear , without embarrassment, clothes that look like they have been purchased from an early 1980s street market.
