New Statesman Article - To End The Tories' Assault On The Young, Labour Must Get Back Into Power

Recommended Posts

Article here

I actually found this via a Manx Politics Facebook page of all things...interesting to see how the penny is finally starting to drop that the youth of today are being well and truly shafted by the older generations. The blame is spurious though.

That is very funny. As though Tony and Gordon weren't responsible in the first place (quick, don't look over there at the national debt including bank bailouts!). Dave and George are just continuing the good work.

Indeed. Pots and kettles come to mind.

I blame Brown for handing over control of interest rates to the Bank of England whilst removing house price inflation from the inflation index.

I blame Eddie George for stoking the biggest social fire disaster in history, smugly stating "a little bit of house price inflation never hurt anyone".

An entire generation would completely disagree.

I blame both parties for keeping up the good work of ensuring the older generations live a pretty comfortable life at the expense of the young.

I blame those older generations for being too wrapped up in their badly gained wealth to care about the fact that their children have a bleak future.

It's almost like a veil of amnesia has fallen over the country, the 13 year reign of terror is so easily forgotten.

Indeed. How easily people forget ZanuLabour.

This is 40 years in the making.

The ideaology must continue. If this means the enslavement of the young than so be it.

All challengers to the system must be discredited, ridiculed, or destroyed...

Arguing over which puppet to blame is missing the point.

To end the Tories' assault on the young, vote for the tories. Typical LibLabCon propaganda.

No its not.

The UK economy was OK in 96.

Rather than create grwoth using sensible methods, Brown blew a massive credit bubble.

When the first bubble looked like popping, he blew another.

Are we supposed to pretend the Blair/Brown era was pro-indigenous young with its HPI and open-door immigration policies? Typical labourite to think labour represent the workers when they do the total opposite. They are the same as the tories - controlled by lobbying/big business and the banks. Absolutely the same apart from the label on the bottle.

Bang on... I bought a very nice house in that era for 69k, my colleagues told me I was insane and had lost the plot. They were right, who the h3ll saw what was to follow though!

The current Tories are a continuation of NuLabour, Cameron being the true heir to Blair.

What we need is a return to proper free market Conservative values and it won't happen until the current leaders are consigned to history.

She is basically a career politician. Chummy with bliar as she always gave liebour MPs an easy ride if they came onto GMTV, to the point of it being obvious, and so given a safe seat.

Recall her debating the EU on QT years ago. Said she was for joining the Euro back in the day because it was 'right for us then' but we definitely shouldnt join now (now being 2010 or whenever she was on QT) because at the moment it would be disadvantageous. Her view seemed to be it was some kind of Brothel you could check in and out of willy nilly dependent on whether you think the UK needed a stronger or weaker currency. She seemed a bit simple, albeit somewhat more convincing that most 'bliar babes'

Cycles.

It wasn't as bad then.

Then the cycle turned.

A bit different to it being ok.

In the States, the young are looking to Bernie Sanders and his message of too high tuition fees and an economy run for the 1% is making waves with that demographic. In the UK meanwhile, the young who are fed up with high tuition fees and an economy that doesn't work for them are told by the leader of the left that Trident is the most pressing issue facing the UK.

Sort of.

Brown was a genius - no more boom or bust.

When the cycle turned in the early 2000s, it would have made him look bad and stop him being elected as the eternal leader of genius of the UK and the world.

So he pumped stuff up, blew loads via tax credits.

'Optimised' those Scottish banks - prudence and all that.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt he tried to stop the inevitable by releasing even more of beelzebub's demons.

At worst he was following beelzebub's orders.

Just be thankful he bottled calling an election in 2007.
