Corbyn - time to go ?Page 5 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)
Even the governor of the Bank of England said immigration is depressing wages. My IT job was shipped to India 15 years ago with a few thousand others. They found out that it wasn't possible to do the job remotely so set up an office in the UK. Claiming it wasn't possible to find the right staff in the UK they shipped over a load of Indians complete with visas and now passports. For people like me there is a real resentment of immigration.

Immigration does destroy the working classes' standard of living. When there is a glut of something, in this case labour then the price of that or the wages will fall.

Global trade and euro trade is often acknowledged as a thoroughly good thing (just listen to any lefty remainder bleating on and persons of that globalist ilk )but this too is rubbish if your job goes away and your income. Of course some could benefit, some consumers or sometimes a business, although again businesses need demand from customers and customers without jobs is not good for the the domestic economy.

These are problems that come with an unsound money system. Perhaps we can artificially blow up house price values three times, as we did in say the decade after 1997- and get the house owners to withdraw their uworked for and untaxed gains and spend them on German cars and chinese goods. Our workers can become estate agents and the increasing losers can be fobbed off with useless degrees, the minimum wage and tax credits.

Interesting that the London Standard, you know that one edited by a certain ex-chancellor, is pointing out that the one debate being avoided in this election is Brexit. Considering that the election was called (supposedly) so that the country could return a strong and stable government with the backing of the people to achieve a better outcome in the negotiations. As the Standard points out, the two things the electorate needs to hear is what are they going to do about bringing immigration down (if the Leave vote wasn't about that, what was it about) and access to the single market (which is what we joined and the public wanted 40 years ago).

Well thee preeminent manifesto was out today, only nine days for me to avoid reading it, very thoughtful person wee Jimmy. Of course have a rough idea they are not happy with the fun palace we all live in and would rather demolish their wing and build it elsewhere with non English politicos. Of course Scottish one's are the finest in the world but the clue to their future disappointment is all there not in the Scotland part of the phrase but in the politicos bit aka banking puppets. They love Socialism do bankers.


Thanks try , rubbishy lyrics , nice pics of Theresa , nice arms at the lectern . She does limbs really well . Catchy chorus too. All politicians are liars, their job is to find the words to build a coalition to reach power . Jeremy is doing rather well. But obviously Theresa is going to win by landslide.

I hated that song in the eighties, I 'm a wham bam man myself, but I did start getting into it and I quite enjoyed it . Thanks Kirk good call.:)

“Maggie Thatcher, milk-snatcher”

Here's a good selection of songs reviling the horror that Theresa May is desperate to emulate

http://louderthanwar.com/top-13-anti-margaret-thatcher-songs/

For those who wish to learn from the past...a poignant lesson.

I can't help but think what a pity for the great people of the UK that you have aquiline-nosed fvckwits such as Theresa and Boris and that bloke Davis making a mockery of you all. You're such a wonderful people with strength galore, humour and keen intelligence plus awareness.

I marched against the war on Iraq....it was so important for me to do so I took my very young children with me...we needed to swell those numbers.....normal people want peace....abnormal people want to spill blood....Corbyn is a viable option, I'd love to see him take Trump to task, May is a career opportunist with dollar signs in her eyes and a fvckin' turkey neck with dubious taste in husband and attire.

And who does she think she is with that sob story about being childless....a contestant on Britain's Got Talent? ...she wishes....

Billy I love dirty dancing. Love it.

I know what you mean Kirk, so sad he's now gone.
That Fools and Horses episode is so funny, but then so many episodes are.


Scarey.
I wish I had the faith you do in Corbyn, I really do.
I don't believe he'll be able to achieve half of what he claims in his manifesto
I don't believe he'll get a good deal for brexit
I don't believe he'll be able to make horrific decisions in the face of terrorism

I hate the fact we have such a poor choice of candidates/parties.

Whether Corbyn can achieve what he is hoping to at least it would be a change in the right direction.

Rightly we were all shocked by the murders in Manchester last week but it is happening all over the world In the Philippines I think the authorities are still fighting ISIS in the streets and bombing one of their own cities whilst in Kabul another 60 dead from a car bomb just today.

Aye and the Tories still haven't worked out how they're going to wipe out the deficit and pay back the trillion quid they've borrowed.

Anyone remember Osborne saying they wouldwipe out the deficit within the first parliament he was Chancellor?
Mr Osborne did celebrate forecasts showing that the government was on course to eliminate the deficit on a number of occasions. In his very first budget, he showed forecasts predicting a surplus on the 'structural current budget' in 2014/15.


Then in 2014 he said it would be by 2017 (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/georgeosborne/11254652/George-Osbornes-law-a-pledge-to-balance-the-books.html)

Oops - now May says it will be 2025.

Yet somehow a lot of people seem to think the Tories are the only ones competent enough to run the country.

Your ignorance regarding Britain's colonial past, and the lasting legacy of that, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
Saudi Arabia is the source of much of the funding and ideology for "Isis" and "Al Queserasera", but May is happy to sell them weapons, just as Britain sold weapons to Saddam, before we decide we didn't like him anymore.
Britain is responsible (Balfour declaration, and before) for the establishment of a theological Disneyland in the former Palestine, and continues to support the illegal occupations there.
We supported and armed Gadaffi, and then
Cameron encouraged the people of Libya to revolt, and "promised" we'd "stand with them". But now they sit, starving.
Cameron wanted to help "Isis" (before they became Isis) in Syria, luckily, parliament voted no.

To pretend that British foreign policy has no impact on the rest of the world, is ridiculous.


imagine the clown trying to force a deal with the eu

The EU hates the tories for 49 years of whining, followed by "Brexit".
May's "negotiating skills" will be just as ineffective as Cameron's.
Speaking of clowns, we currently have boris as foreign secretary, meeting with heads of state all over the world.
Because May had to give him a "reward".
He's a complete buffoon.

Corbyn has been negotiating, for peace, quite sucessfully with people who were then considered our "enemies", for decades.
May did a u-turn on her budget in a week, (or should that be "weak"? )
And a u-turn on her own manifesto in a day!
She couldn't even "negotiate" the contents of the manifesto, with her own cabinet!

If the tories get back in, we'll get a worse deal from the EU., than otherwise.

people still havent worked out how labour will pay for all their promises .

The tories "promised" to "balance the books" by, 2015, then 2017, now, maybe 2025.
They've borrowed more money than all the previous labour govts combined
May "promised" there'd be no election.
Then called one, just a week later
-but were still the last party to get their manifesto ready.
May "promised" to reduce immigration.
Under her, it rose to new record levels, and most of it didn't come from the Eu.

The tories are still the same party as Coulson, Cameron & Murdoch, Ashcroft, and Grant Shapps.
Dodgy crooks, doing dodgy deals, with dodgy regimes, because they believe "the economy" is more important than poor people's lives.

As for immigration, people have lost more jobs to "outsourcing" overseas, by our good patriotic British companies, than to immigrants coming here.
People have lost more jobs to robots and automation.

The tories have increased immigration to new record levels.
While simultaneously cutting funding for all our services, and then blaming immigrants, for the "strain on our infrastructure".

They are still selling social housing, and not replacing it, and blaming their own record immigration, for the lack of social housing.
The same with hospital, doctors, social care, education.....etc etc .

If people vote them in again, it'll be their own stupid faults, and they'll deserve what they get, or rather, what they don't get, anymore.

I seem to remember a certain poster being in receipt of both disability benefits, and government support, when he needed it....
I'll say no more about that...

Ah oor jo doon in oxford toon manages to blame us again for the atrocities commited in islams name......

Britain is responsible (Balfour declaration, and before) for the establishment of a theological Disneyland in the former Palestine, To pretend that British foreign policy has no impact on the rest of the world, is ridiculous."

So who was responsible for the ottoman empire and their attempted march through europe then? Did they have a seer who predicted the british empire? The serbs know all about fighting islamic expansionism..........

"The EU hates the tories for 49 years of whining, followed by "Brexit"."

Ee I'm old enough to remember the labour party hating the eu. Then 'firebrand socialist' kinnock and his clan made £10 million. Enough to get him to change his mind..........

"Corbyn has been negotiating, for peace, quite sucessfully with people who were then considered our "enemies", for decades"

What successes did he have then?.............

"If the tories get back in, we'll get a worse deal from the EU., than otherwise."

Fvck the anti democratic, global capitalist, worker hating eu. Even john mcdonnell recently called pro eu folk as capitalist lackeys..............

"The tories "promised" to "balance the books" by, 2015, then 2017, now, maybe 2025."

All make promises they will not keep mate............

"The tories are still the same party as Coulson, Cameron & Murdoch, Ashcroft, and Grant Shapps.
Dodgy crooks, doing dodgy deals, with dodgy regimes, because they believe "the economy" is more important than poor people's lives."

Dianne 'the abbbottsaurus' abbott. I rest my case............

"As for immigration, people have lost more jobs to "outsourcing" overseas, by our good patriotic British companies, than to immigrants coming here. People have lost more jobs to robots and automation."

So the building trade outsourced buildings abroad'''''' Robots build houses!!!!!!!!!!........


"If people vote them in again, it'll be their own stupid faults, and they'll deserve what they get, or rather, what they don't get, anymore."

Yep. And some on here voted for the war criminal blair a few times.............

"I seem to remember a certain poster being in receipt of both disability benefits, and government support, when he needed it.... I'll say no more about that..."

Disability benefits ARE government support. They are one and the same. And why should folk who have paid into the system not get help when needed?........

Why on earth would I want to do that?
Did I say that?
No.
You're mixing me up with someone like yourself, another gullible believer in the right-wing media.
Careful, there's a "dementia tax" coming.

It's only Tory boys who become so hysterical and melodramatic that they make statements like that.
I think you're "projecting".

it would be time to leave the country if he did win the election

Why not ask your Tory mate if he'll keep to his 'threat'??

Yes, Corbyn would be awful because they said so, in "the sump".
Murdoch loves the tories, and they still owe him some favours, for keeping Cameron out of prison.

But keep believing the strong smelling stuff that comes from the tory stable.
Three elections, and two (and counting) referenda, and the pound's lost 20%,
wait til you see how low it drops after we actually leave.

Sending May to negotiate with the EU., will get the same sort of results as sending Rupert Murdoch to try and get a good deal from Liverpool.
The tories took us out of the EU., they've already got what they wanted.

In a way, i don't care if they do get back in. It'll be funny watching them trying to explain to their backers, exactly why their businesses are suffering.
And now that they've whipped up a frenzy (again) about "immigration!"
Every "new deal" they do with non-eu-countries, will come with extra immigration provisos.
Like they gave to the Chinese, when they sold them the privilege of building our new nuclear power stations, and guaranteed a minimum price, so that they get healthy returns.
They don't mind other countries state-owned industries making a profit, in fact they've "guaranteed it", at the expense of consumers.

There's just 5 more days to decide; if you want more of the same old crap: tax-cuts, for the wealthy, and corporations, and more "austerity", for everyone else, til 2025 now!
Or something completely different. (Cue Monty Python )

I never cease to be fascinated by the stupidity of the masses.
Theresa May has terrible posture, and scrawny legs.
She's married to a hedge-fund manager, (and Hank Marvin stunt-double) so failure will still bring its rewards.
She doesn't care about the long term future, because she has no kids to worry about.
To her, just becoming PM was "success", same as with Cameron.

She's too dim to be evil, but just dim enough, to be dangerous.
Have a lovely weekend.

Oooh, Vlad, what are you going to do when Scotland tries to rejoin the EU?
(If they get another independence referendum, because they voted overwhelmingly to stay in.)
Are most of Scotland "capitalist lackeys" too?
