    As soon as I heard Warsi claimed to have made 'appropriate payment' I thought a bad thought

    TBF, that should read "Mainstream politicians - malevolent and stupid".

    They can't even put a tax on pasties without messing it up and having to u-turn. Economic credibility lol.

    There is with the public spending cuts, which have been pretty carefully calibrated to make sure the burden falls hardest on non-Tory voting parts of the country. That's why much of the south-east has barely noticed the difference, whereas Calderdale council has had to close half of its libraries and Hull has lost its entire youth service, to name but two examples off the top of my head. Admittedly the big exception to that was Great Yarmouth, whose Tory council had to cope with AFAIK the largest percentage budget cut of any local authority. Unsurprisingly, Yarmouth no longer has a Tory council. :cool: :D

    With the tax thing, though, I think it's simple incompetence. Osborne saw an apparent loophole in VAT and tried to close it, without thinking of what the consequences might be. As I said, he hasn't got a fucking clue: he is malevolent, but he's also just plain stupid. Having also climbed down on the caravan tax he now looks pretty daft as well.

    Actually, Yarmouth is a lot less prosperous, 'leafy' and well, Tory than you'd think. It's an olde-tyme seaside resort that's too rundown and clapped out to get much tourist business, and now that the best of it's North sea oil era is over,. there's just not much money coming into the place. Consequently, unemployment's the highest in Norfolk, and there's quite a bit of poverty and social blight there

    Of course. I've not been there for a few years, but it was looking pretty depressed when I last visited. Nevertheless, it had a Tory council, I think mainly because Norfolk is in general quite conservative (with the partial exception of Norwich), and it did form a conspicuous exception to the rule that Tory-voting areas have escaped the worst of the cuts.

    Lets not forget this cunt:


    A new multi-million pound boat for Queeny certainly eases my times of austerity, or how about sending every state school in England a new copy of the King James bible with a foreword by the man himself, that should qualm the youths fears for their furture prospects, and after he confirmed the cancellation of a load of school building projects. Fuckspud of the highest order. :mad:

    I thought we were talking about examples of stupidity here, Dave, not people who can shit out of their own mouths.

    Not another example, but when one of your supposedly main cheerleaders runs an article such as this you're pretty fucked imo:

    I wonder: were the parts of the country now targeted for cuts particular beneficiaries under Labour?

    Would that be the grit underneath the heels of their boots with which they're grinding us down?

    Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
    yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.

    to be fair all I can think of when I think of Gove is smashing his face with a blunt object. At the moment I'm favouring the spade but it changes periodically.

    Give him an even chance, use the business end of a fork or rake. Or even a yard broom if you don't mind taking a bit longer.
