Well dont worry, you can get cheap clothes and electronic gadgets!!!.

So dont be selfish, losing your job is a price worth paying according to New Labour and the Scottish Leader Gordon Brown. Yes Gordon who give free education to Scottish Students but charges English Students if they go to Scotland. Racist Bigot I suppose is the real label for such a policy.

Brown says immigrants should be made to learn English

GERRI PEEV

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

GORDON Brown has called for all immigrants to be forced to learn English as he continued his crusade to promote Britishness.

The Chancellor - who as prime minister in waiting has tried to trumpet his patriotic credentials - said people who settled in Britain but resisted learning English should be made to learn the language.

"I think people who come into this country, who are part of our community, should play by the rules," he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme. "I think learning English is part of that. I think that understanding British history is part of that.

If someone is unemployed who doesn't speak English, they should have to learn English."

Aides to the Chancellor stressed that he was not setting out new policies, but just reiterating his "personal views".

Alex Salmond, the Scottish National Party leader, criticised Mr Brown for trying to "spin" existing policy.

Observers have pointed to Mr Brown's softened accent, with critics having said his image as a "dour Scot" could put off Middle England.

Meanwhile, Mr Brown last night urged business leaders to embrace globalisation as a force for jobs and growth.

Addressing the Confederation of British Industry, he argued that new global competition presented opportunities for "prosperity through innovation and change".

"The paradox of today's globalisation is that even its winners feel themselves to be losers," he said.

"People who are benefiting from cheaper clothes, cheaper electronics goods still think of globalisation as job losses."

It's not the Government's job to tell people what to do, and what to learn. That's just fascism. However they could help and save public money too by ceasing to provide benefits leaflets or any other benefits information in any language other than English.

So you're saying that the government should have no control over who emigrates to Britain?

It's simply absurd to let large numbers of people move here if they don't even speak English. It's very hard to have a nation in any meaningful sense if people don't even speak the same language.

I dont know Rob if you are aware but..............................

The Tories are not in power, and have not been in power for nearly a decade.

So what they said nine years ago is pretty much irrelevent.

We need to put Browns Comments into perspective. Being unemployed due to offshoring is acceptable because you can buy cheap clothes and electrical goods.

Now are those the words of someone fit to run a country ?. I think not, New Labour with the help of the press have been exposed as incompetent self serving ex public schoolboys who are not fit to Govern.

Their position today makes them completely unelectable, they will shortly be history and the UK can then breath a sigh of relief.

One thing's for certain - they're not the party of the working man.

Exactly.

They have hijacked the Labour Party and polarised British Politics which from day one was their intention.

The sooner they are removed and we return to having a Government and a real opposition the better off we will all be.

http://www.creditaction.org.uk/debtstats.htm

The average person has just £27 a week left to live on after meeting all their bills and essential outgoings, a survey has showed. Recent rises in council tax and utility bills, combined with high levels of debt, have left the average Briton with £954 worth of monthly commitments to pay from an average income of £1,070, according to Combined Insurance.

a lot of these people will have been labour voters.

A lot of these people will lose their jobs altogether when they leave these expensive isles forever.

A lot of these people still will not understand what has happened to them and what has exacerbated their situation.

All very clever really, and very stupid at the same time.

I made the point in a topic once, that I doubt that any party would have done anything different given the whirlwind of cheap money going around the world, all they do is pander to the lowest denominator, greed, if they can make the people feel rich they will get the votes, no party ever got in power by making the voters feel poor, the operative word here is FEEL, like the rest of you I know that the so called wealth is actually debt and gross consumerism ripped wild.

Laurejon, I assume when you say education you are referring to higher education. Higher education is NOT free in Scotland. Once you graduate and earn a certain amount, you pay it back. Granted it is not top up fees, but it isn't free either. Please do not perpetuate this myth.

Rob

Agree 100% - all the political parties would have exploited the feelgood factor - the thing that racks me off is Brown pretends to be a socialist but he's has put the average house further out of reach for the average family than any chancellor in the last 100 years

Bloody public school champagne socialists (I hate) the lot of them - at least Thatcher didn't pretend

Hang on....................who put up interest rates to kill off inflation and the housing market?.

It was the Tories, for sure they knew they would not be liked for doing it, but it was something that had to be done.

The same today, interest rates should have been adjusted several years ago.

Look at this year, starts off quiet, a bit of unrest amongst the masses as their property did not go up 2k each month, so the Government have a word in BofE's shell like, and we see a drop in rates and a surge of activity and inflation in the property market.

They are irresponsible, they are creating the boom to bust, if rates had been used in small measures in 2001 we would have seen inflation in property running in parallel with the economy.

We all know that a little pain today, will save a hell of a lot of pain tommorow.

I for one would welcome higher interest rates, and a tightening of the runaway credit boom, not least because we the public will be the ones who have to pay for others misdeameanors in huge rate rises in the future.

Moderation is the key word here, and its now too late to be moderate to stablise the economy, its going to be too little too late a mistake the Tories made.

i think you'll find it it's the scottish parliament that's responsible for student finance in Scotland. it's the lib-dems that pushed for free education with the rich paying only £2,000 graduate tax for full course.

tony & co only hammered English students because he thought that's what middle england wanted :unsure:

it looks like the lib-dems might overtake labour in the Scottish Parliament elections next year :blink:

i agree that the English won't vote for a Scottish PM.(racism? :blink: )
