It always amused me when the class warriors on the Left are shrieking at how the evil Coalition has presided over “tax cuts” for Millionaires. Have a look at some factual data. Those in receipt of more than £1m are paying more in taxes than at any time in the last Labour administration!

Is it possible that Miliband and his goons have been holding talks with the IRA’s proxies in Sinn Fein in the vain hope of forming some sort of post-election pact? With Scottish Nationalists eyeing up similar “arrangements” we have the remarkable situation of a Labour Party sitting in Government supported by parties that seek to end the Union.

As we know, yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Concentration camp. All sane people will be aware of the horrors that took place in that hell hole. So, come today…

Ex-Plaid Cymru leader Lord Wigley has apologised after comparing the Trident base in Scotland to Auschwitz concentration camp. He had been asked about the employment boost if the nuclear facility were to be moved to Wales. He told the BBC: “No doubt there were many jobs provided in Auschwitz and places like that but that didn’t justify their existence.” The comments come after the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation.

Wigley can wriggle all he wants but he plainly compared a British military base to a Nazi concentration camp.  His moral hypocrisy is quite staggering but is an insight into the demented thinking of Welsh Nationalism. Like most politicians, Wigley is most sorry for any hurt he has caused himself.

I took part in a BBC discussion this morning on the suggestion by Conservative Leader David Cameron that he would further reduce the maximum benefit ceiling for those who do not work from 26k to 23k.

David Cameron has vowed to reduce the annual benefits cap from £26,000 to £23,000 “within the first few days” of a Conservative victory in the general election. The Prime Minister said the £135 million in savings generated by this further squeeze for benefit claimants would be used towards funding three million apprenticeships by 2020, a scheme expected to cost £300 million annually.

Now, here in the political LALA land of Northern Ireland there IS NO CAP! Our wonderful politicians at Stormont whose primary allegiance is to dependency culture, refuse to countenance the idea that it is MORALLY right that those who do not work are in receipt of greater State benefits than those who do work. Sinn Fein has pledged that NO ONE will be worse off as a result of any changes to Benefits. Why? Because they are essentially marxists with no desire to boost our employment numbers. They would rather increase dependency on the State via Welfare.

My robust view is that it can NEVER be right for the UNEMPLOYED to be in receipt of more money than those who DO go out to work. The cap proposed is too generous because a nett £23000 in benefits equates to a gross salary of £30k!!! Naturally all the Benefits whores out there are outraged at this fact and when I was on-air they screeched the problem was a/ Lack of jobs and b/ Private sector employers paying “too little” Both argument are lamentable and unworthy of much argument OTHER than to point out tens of thousands of people came here from outside NI and could find jobs and if you force the private sector to pay more than it can afford you guarantee fewer jobs!

It’s called the SYRIZA effect…


Yup, the people have spoken and now the markets are speaking. See a problem?

One of the better Candidates

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, whose speech to activists in Iowa last weekend drew strong reviews, has taken the first formal step toward a presidential candidacy in 2016, establishing a committee that will help spread his message and underwrite his activities as he seeks to build his political and fundraising networks in the months ahead.

This guy has a real uphill battle, but has proven over and over that he can fight and win.  He has Governed well, fought off recalls and is very clear in the directions he wants to go.  It would be nice if he had a chance.  This is a 23 min speech, but worth listening to.

Moderate or rough, becoming very rough later in north.

I have some comforting news for British people; the hugely-subsidised and fairly useless Met. Office, well known for its useless forecasts, huge amounts of taxpayers cash spent on ever-more complex computers which produce ever-more catastrophically-wrong forecasts, and slavish devotion to either Global Warming or Climate Change beliefs; this boondoggle of a forecasting organisation is no longer the worst in the world. It has come under severe pressure to be the worst forecaster ever by the bunch in America known as the National Weather Service, who forecast three feet of snow, hurricane winds and power outages over two-thirds of the North-Eastern United states.

What did New York get, after shutting down all the subways, streets, tunnels and airports? They get moderate snowfalls of six-ten-odd inches, empty streets, businesses closed down, and Mayor de Blasio surveying all of his empire, secure that he had ‘done the right thing’. Philadelphia was promised fourteen inches of snow; they got about two.

American NWS, we salute you!

The meteorologist-in-charge of the Philadelphia forecast office, Gary Szatkowski, posted to Twitter:

My deepest apologies to many key decision makers and so many members of the general public.

You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry.

I Love this guy

The Best 10 minutes of my week.

Watch Representative Trey Gowdy try to explain to the State Dept Representative that oversight means when the Congress asks for 100% of the Documents it means 100% of the documents.

According to IRNA. The Obama administration are now the Middle Man for Iran to threaten Israel.

Iran sends warning to Israel via US officials
Jan 27, 10:43 AM (ET)

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s official IRNA news agency is reporting the country has sent a warning to Israel through the United States over the recent killing of an Iranian general in an alleged Israeli airstrike.

The Tuesday report quotes Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian as saying, “We told the Americans that the leaders of the Zionist regime should await the consequences of their act.”

He added, “The Zionist regime has crossed our red lines.”

Iranian Gen. Mohammad Ali Allahdadi was killed along with six Lebanese Hezbollah fighters in a Jan. 18 airstrike in the Syrian-controlled part of the disputed Golan Heights.

Both Iran and Hezbollah blamed Israel for the strike; the Israeli government refused to comment.

Amirabdollahian says Iran delivered the message to U.S. officials via diplomatic channels. He did not elaborate.
