This will happen whether or not

Honey, I Lost the House. Now It’s Time to Party

If you believe what the economy needs is a boost to spending... let’s get everyone to stop paying their mortgage. Why stop there?... make the plan fairer by spreading some of the wealth around. “Nobody has to pay,” Lawler said. “Let’s have a rent moratorium as well.”

    If you really want to send a message, you have the ideal opportunity in a couple of weeks.

    If you want to send a message more directly related:

    1. You’ll need a good ‘idea’. One that people can easily do (IE – Send an e-mail to a particular address all at the same time, or to several addresses, including media addresses so that you get some exposure/coverage).
    2. You’ll need to be able to communicate the ‘idea’ to a vast number of people. With a pre-determined date. Eg. send e-mails to everyone you know, asking them to forward them on. (Although I generally ignore this kind of thing).

    Any other ideas, peeps???

    See my comment re- NC(libdem) on the other blog ‘Reuters: Jack Straw resists wider vote reform’.

    Labor – Will not get my vote. I said last Nov’ they would have had a bette chance if they drop-kicked him back to Scotland. And I actually thought and commented, at the time, that Straw should have stepped up to take control. Stabel and respected. But they didn’t, and we’re left with that muppet.

    Cons – Really not sure. Not convinced

    A ‘Balanced’ parliment might just be the best thing. With Labor loosing sooo convincingly that GB has to stand down. If that’s possible?

  • devo,

    “did somebody mention spending cuts? no? – they will after may 6th”

    Isn’t it funny how none of the three major parties have discussed the huge spending cuts that are certain to hit? Do none of them feel the need to be honest with us? I’d rather have Dave-the-Slasher than Dave-the-liar. Not even the Lib Dems or UKIP dare mention cuts. (Note that spending cuts aren’t the same as job cuts – you can either cut 20% of the public-sector workforce, or cut every public-sector worker’s pay & benefits by 20%; or if you’re particularly devious you could cut none of the public-sector jobs but just stop outsourcing work to the private sector).

    I suspect most public sectors are riddled with innefficiency and people looking out for themselves, working the system. I know of a few, and am gob-smacked at how they get away with what they do. Advantage is being taken, and who do we have to control it? Yep, the untrusted MP’s who have been lining thier own pockets for years.

    This country needs a huge shack-up. A party prepared to make some hard decisions, and make some drastic alterations. Problem is, what do you do with the people after cutting away the rotten matter? We can’t incinerate them. Maybe Jobs for the British is a necessity.

  • “The trouble is that what the markets demand – a credible plan for getting debt back to sustainable levels – is the opposite of what the voters want to hear. Perhaps regrettably, when markets and politics collide, it is always the markets that end up winning.

    I can’t see a coalition possessing the requisite decisiveness. When markets wake up to this, there’s going to be trouble.”

  • A lovely house in Nottingham overlooking the green… Guess what the owner occupiers are doing with the “savings” on their reduced interest-only mortgage? …making home improvements such as new furniture and carpets, new colour schemes etc. believing it will help them to sell the house when it comes to sell. They have no intention of ever paying off their mortgage and the value of their house has dropped by about £ 100 k since they bought it a few years ago…Hopeful? Blind? Can’t count?

    Just a thought. What if there aren’t any cuts. Did Robert Mugabe make spending cuts ?
    No he just over printed the Bank Notes. As long as you can afford the ink what is the problem ?

    The first thing I would do is stop all Governement agancies from buying Foreign made vehicles.
    Why should any Police force buy Mercedes vans when you can get a perfectly good
    Transit made in Southampton. If they aren’t good enough invest some money to get them up
    to standard.

    this principle can be applied in other contexts, eg.

    the foreign consultant who spoke to a family member in hospital last week, had a translator with her.

    it would appear there is an issue with the standard of medical training in this country

    Either that or all our newly trained medical staff have gone to Canada and places where they can afford a house.

    I’m sure that’s a typo but in actual fact this country has been shacked up for years, in a land of make believe fuelled by debt.

    If you vote for the government, you consent, thus agree to the contract that they rule you.

    Are you sheep or sovereign humans?

    No tax without representation! None of them represent me, at local, national, or EU level!

    I’ve starting small and will work upwards, none of their challenges had any impact so far. I just love the TPUC ideas 🙂
    They made the mistake of becoming Corporations, so make them choke on it!
