Darling to inject billions into public sector to boost economy

listair Darling said plans for two aircraft carriers and a new nuclear deterrent would go ahead. London's £16bn Crossrail project and the £9.3bn budget for the 2012 Olympic Games were also safe.

  • They are pretty good at re-announcing expenditure plans as if they were new money.

  • The time to announce and spend on infrastructure projects was in the last 10 years. (preferably near the start). Now we would have useful infrastructure.

    Goodness help us. Please save us from the Olympics! Crossrail is ok enough, but, would much rather see private business pick out the most profitable route in the country. No doubt, a route from London to Scotland via the midlands would be better, and, freight routes would be more useful for the economy, IMHO. London has enough public transport, just need a contraction of the financial community and a shift of jobs to the Midlands and up North. How on earth are we going to pay for our way of life if its based on men in suits shuffling funny money? The working class need to get educated about freedom instead of getting propaganda from rubbish newspapers. Only the working class can save us. Only the working class make any real wealth! Everybody talks about a shift in consciousness.

    The only one that would be worth while would be understanding that the middle and upper classes are parasites on the working class, and that the working class out numbers the middle and upper classes 1000 to 1. That, properly informed, they can demand freedom from regulation, taxes and protection from communist imports.

  • Problem is, big infrastructure projects use comparatively little labour now but are highly expensive because of EWTD, min wage, h&s regs etc.
    When roads and dams were built in the Great Depression thousands of people were employed on each project.
    Our DGH took just 160 men to build it. Our biggest employers are small and medium size businesses and these will be squeezed with higher costs to pay for the Big Projects
