Labour’s new video

March 31, 2015 at 12:57 pm (democracy, elections, Jim D, labour party, reformism)

Much to my surprise, this is rather good:

“But it isn’t just a choice between two different plans, two different ways of getting the deficit down. It’s a choice about what kind of country we want to live in.”

Lets have more of that, and less of this

    Right and if Labour get in I want a guarantee from you lefties that you won’t moan “but we didn’t vote for this!”. Yes, you did!

      Steven lefties exist to moan. If they came to power they would not know because they exist to moan.

      This is a British election 2015 and nothing to do with Syria, Anne Frank and the F’n Nazis.

      Yes, the link to that wanker Paul Staines’s (aka Guido Fawkes) blog contains no evidence, that I can find, of Freeman’s alleged “tax dodging”. It *does* contain a claim that he once supported Scargill’s Socialist Labour Party: to which, I can only reply: “so what”?

      • Steven Johnston said,

        Agreed, so he switched back to the Labour Party (mark 1) when he realised mark 2 had no hope of winning elections. No big story there.
        As for tax dodging, I’m not sure why that is such a crime in left-wing circles as the “daddy” of the left, Karl Marx, organised a tax revolt in his lifetime. Why do lefties want to pay taxes to the British state or indeed any state. From their pov the state is against not for us! So why fund it?

      • John Welsh said,

        ok, here’s one from the Mirror: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/alison-phillips-rich-tax-avoiders-1759478
        perhaps you could keep the criticism a bit less ad-hominem?
        Essentially, he’s worth millions but declared himself bankrupt to avoid tax.. then he backs a labour party who want charge the likes of you and me more tax – go figure.

  7. Boleyn Ali said,

    No that is not what that article says, rather it questions him for having “allowed” his partner to go bankrupt for her tax arrears.

    I thought the ad was OK, but can’t watch any of them without feeling played.
    So much thought is put into these broadcasts that I can’t help thinking about spin and and the commissioning committees.

    The mug is a bit naff, but what’s wrong with the message?
    Having 600,000 people a year arriving in Britain, harms the country (possibly).
    Watching a programme about a motor cycle ride in Western Australia last night, the guy on the bike relished the emptiness of the road and the open spaces. Meanwhile, we’re nose to tail in traffic, even in the countryside.

    Do they count people leaving? (Don’t answer – it’s rhetorical)

    World population increase is going to stop quite soon, once the ‘cohorts’ have evened themselves out.

    People seem to like living in new York City in that Yankland. If everyone on the planet lived at that same NYC population density, we’d all fit into a country about the same size as the former Yugoslavia. So yeah, like everywhere, it’s full up y’know (not).

    • damon said,

      They estimate the number of people leaving.
      About 300,000 a year, leaving us with this nearly 300,000 population gained.
      Many of those leaving will be the people who arrived only a few years before, and it’s quite difficult to know what is replacing what.
      But even if all the people who arrived left eventually, it still doesn’t do much for settled communities who experience the churn of the revolving door. When streets become bedsit-land, with people coming and going so fast that no community roots can take hold, it can make for a depressing neighbourhood. Dodgy landlords operating houses of multiple occupancy can make a place look downright scruffy.
      Whole swathes of London now look like this. Housing being so expensive that people have to crowd into houses to split the rent.

      It does annoy me a bit when people insist that this form of immigration has no effect on the low paid – also facing high rents.
      And the hypocrisy of Ed Miliband going on about zero hour contracts.
      I’m on one and have no work today. But it’s with a recruitment agency, and if companies were forbidden from offering zero hour contracts to workers themselves, they would just farm it out to job agencies.
      Are Labour planning to do away with them too? Of course they couldn’t.
      And job agencies are flush with workers because of the reserve army of Labour that eastern European worker immigrants make up.
      My labour wasn’t required today, probably because they had three or four people to chose from for the work that was available.
