Ah, Labour’s Ed Balls, the man who was such a close adviser to Gordon Brown as he racked unprecedented national debt, has a big idea. He is going to guarantee a job for the long-term unemployed, if his party is re-elected.

 

Shadow chancellor Ed Balls said the scheme would be paid for by restricting the tax relief on pensions for those earning over £150,000 a year, The party has pledged £1bn to enable employers to meet the cost of hiring the 130,000 people who have been out of work for more than two-years. But the Treasury says Labour is trying to spend the same money twice. It says Mr Balls had already earmarked cuts in pension tax relief to reverse austerity measures.

Look, that is but a minor detail to an economic  visionary such as Balls. In fact, the idea of punishing the “wealthy” by restricting their pension provision is surely an extra bonus for determined wealth re-distributors such as Balls!

Labour has one purpose and one purpose only. To say whatever it takes to persuade voters to put them back in power in 2015.

If this means denying austerity, fine. If this means conjuring up non-jobs and introducing a little class warfare, fine.

Labour all but bankrupted the UK and now the same people are back with solemn faces, doe eyes and a big “trust me” look on their faces.

I believe the electorate is stupid enough to bring them back to finish the job they started – the destruction of the UK. Magic jobs will convince some people to vote for them.

  1. DV writes – “I believe the electorate is stupid enough to bring them back to finish the job they started – the destruction of the UK.”

    This implies that the Conservatives under Cameron either intend to halt, or have halted, the destruction of the UK. But this cannot be the case because the policies pushed more strongly by Labour to destroy the UK (Labour didn’t initiate them) have not been reversed by Cameron.

    The reality is that the entire political Establishment is bent on the destruction of the peoples of the UK (English, Welsh, Irish, Scots) as surely as the Establishment of Greece is doing it over there. This is why it will be extremely difficult to stop the rot given that astute people cannot see beyond the LibLabCon system.

  2. Well I know of one unemployed tosser who won’t get out of bed for a minimum wage job….

    Unless maybe the supermodel of his choice gives him fellatio to awaken him, bathes him in asses milk, dribbles wild honey on her ample bosom for him to consume and transports him to his place of employment. From 12 noon till 12:05 every third Wednesday when there’s a Q in the month. Knowing my luck I’d get Anne Widdicombe….not Caprice.

    Nurse ..the screens…!

    No seriously take a listed to that clip. I reckon Labour are deluding themselves that Dole Bludgers actually WANT to do a phoney minimum wage post.

  3. Could it be that ordinay working folk see the large sums that celebs, politicans, bureacrats and other mundane types receive for doing relatively very little, that they become disincentivised, and the idea of grafting for a living becomes less attractive. The wage gap between ‘some of them’ and ‘the rest of us,’ inspires despondency rather than ambition, especially as the group mentioned seem to contribute very little of value to society overall, their ‘production quotient’ being quite negligible.

    Couple that with the generous casual and free-handed way that welfare is dispensed to all and sundry, even to ‘new arrivals’ and their offspring backhome from whence they came, and it is quite easy to understand the reluctance for, or the lack of attraction to the working life.

    Even a modest living wage today seems astronomic compared to that needed prior the Blair era.

    While the quality of life goes down, the cost of living rises disproportionately, that some areas north of London bear a remarkable resemblance to pictures of the Victorian era is not coincidental. In so many ways we seem doomed to relive the Dickens era.

    It is so easy to be critical but the younger generations have virtually no role models or any meaningful community to guide them, – it is certainly the lack of appropriate male role models, that has seen the decline in marriages, and the subsequent collapse of tradional family life, which did at least offer some stability during hard times, – small wonder they are largely regarded as feral…

    Very true Ernest.
    As a kid in the ’50s we often had just bread and jam or bread and beef dripping for tea.
    We had no central heating.
    No designer clothes, no telly, we didn’t know what social workers or human rights were.
    There was no effective medical treatment for asthma.
    But we knew what right and wrong meant. We accepted the consequences of getting caught and didn’t demand access to a lawyer or social worker, and most of us went on to become responsible citizens.
