    Read my lips - more new taxes

    Apparently the Tories are even more stupid than they appear. They obviously didn't learn that taxing or proposing to tax (heavily) your core voters (most Tories are of an older demographic) is unlikely to make them vote for you. Perhaps this is just their way of saying they no longer want to win elections and want to leave the mess to Labour? If the Tories are going to be the party of high tax, mass immigration, high welfare, then there is absolutely no differentiation between them and Labour and in fact, most people were probably better off under Labour because at least they received some benefits of the mass largesse (which the Tories have removed such as child benefit). No point in voting for these clowns.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    They'll probably do something like insist all vests are now flourescent pink to show solidarity with neo-liberalism and it's values and anyone wearing the yellow vest will be considered racist, trans/homophobic and a little Briton, unable to get with the times.

    I think things can be quickly subverted by tptb if they so desire. Like the British flag is now a racist symbol according to many in power...

    So the yellow vest is going to be the symbol of the resistance? Kind of appropriate seeing as the people most likely to wear these are normally working class in manual jobs who have been screwed over. I wonder how long it will be before they are banned or the media starts to turn these vests into a "fascist symbol" like the Trump cap.

    Spy, what do you think Corbyn will do re landlords and BTL if he gets any power?

    Actually come to think of it the few BTLers I know (are Labour supporters). However, more Tory MPs are landlords (not sure if they are BTLers) and they certainly have much more of a Rachmanesque ideology than Corbyn (don't think he will be too hot on landlords, especially BTLers). I agree that Blairite Labour certainly summoned up the ghost of Rachman when it decided to push BTL in the late 1990s though.

    This is idealistic though. In a perfect world, Capitalism would allow businesses (banks) to fail if they weren't performing and doing due diligence. Instead we have socialism for the rich (socialised losses and privatized gains for corporations) as well as beneficial tax rules for the rich (tails they win, heads plebs lose). As long as we have a world economy that is run for the rich by the rich, they will always bail themselves out. ...And magick money for infrastructure is what Corbyn has been suggesting (following the advice of Richard Murphy) for quite a while but according to the media that is tantamount to resurrecting Marx from his grave.

    I wonder if they have changed the names of the people in the article as they all sound suspiciously English. "Zainab" has called her children "Rory" and "Vanessa". Either that or the majority of homeless households are English which is makes you wonder why we need immigration when housing is already stretched for natives. I guess the Tory voting BTLers always need more fodder for their slum dwellings.

    Well, there are endless money trees for the bankers, bank bailouts and magicked up money for corporate welfare, so why not free money for the plebs?

    I wonder if she'd be judgey if one of her poor working class female clients admitted to being a Brexit voting Trump supporter?

    Ah yes. But at least now she has a big enough property to host some vulnerable refugees.

    If she is so concerned about the environment, why did she have children? Their carbon footprint will be huge. Just because you are left-wing doesn't mitigate you of personal responsibility.

    Brexit Odds monitoring

    Thanks. Just seen it's 1.17 for a "no" on Betfair. Do you know if the public gets to know how MPs voted or is it a closed/secret ballot?

    What resignation? Have I missed something? Does this refer to May's withdrawal agreement or just vote against Brexit altogether?

    Bye bye Treason May?

    You've discovered the "memory hole" (presumably the EU takes a lot of its ideas from Orwell's 1984...).
