No thanks to more Labour

First published in Letters

I WAS amused by Nick Bent’s childish letter, Guardian August 14.

What did he expect the Prime Minister to bring to Warrington? A bag of sweets?

His ramblings about the current state of the UK are pathetic. It was Blair and Brown who helped ruin the country by spending what they didn’t have. Is that the way to go or to build up a sound commercial background for us all?

We are seeing the results of four-and-a-half years of sound Government (sadly at times being screwed up by the Lib Dem brigade of Clegg and co).

More people are in work and a lower tax threshold for many low paid workers sounds good to me. There is no escalating tax on fuel duty as devised by Labour.

They are trying to get some sense back into the NHS after the crazy contracts given to GPs under Labour, which are mainly to blame for A&E waiting times.

Where are Blair and Brown now? Blair is supposed to be Middle East peace envoy. A fine job he is doing of that by just not being in any of the warzones he and Bush created Where is Brown? Still sulking over the border in Scotland and rarely seen in Westminster. No Mr Bent, we do not need another dose of Labour’s syrup of figs in the economy or Parliament thank you.

Of course you're not looking at the Tories through rose colored specs are you.
"More people are in work and a lower tax threshold for many low paid workers sounds good to me."

would that be more people in work who cannot afford to live in the country where they work with average house prices at 10 times the national average wage of £26k and national average house price at £260,000 with the latest mortgage restrictions requiring a large deposit and no more than 2x the salary creating a massive surge in people unable to afford a basic home while the rich who don't earn national average buy up all the property after the massive recession and house repossession to over inflate rent to a level where people cannot even rent as average rental prices are at £8,000pa over half the bring home of the national average earner, combine that with £1000pa Council tax, £600 heating costs, the inability to afford fuel or now even transport with network warrington debacle and you get the Tories goals very clearly.....SCREW THE PUBLIC AND SERVE THE RICH.

the truth does not come from bais people who support Conservative, Labour, Lib Dems or anyone it comes from people like me who are sick of the lot of you.... vote #noneoftheabove

the whole system needs abolishing. and a law that states nobody can stand in any capacity as an MP for more than 8 years and no 2 members of the same family can ever stand within 100 years of each other... get rid of the nepotism, and elitism. local MPs should be randomly selected from the public like jury service or national duty, you serve 4 years.

Please no more Labour. Had enough of tit for tat politics from both sides really but really tiered of Labour pretending to be the hero when in fact they have caused most of the issues we have today from housing shortages, school shortages and job loses.

What we need is a government without Rupert Murdoch behind it pulling the strings. Every PM since 1979 has had the backing of News International (or News UK as they were renamed on being found to be a criminal organisation) When Major refused to play ball they got 'True Blue Blair' elected and when Brown refused to sanction the BSkyB takeover they shoehorned Cameron into power. He duly kissed the hand of Rupert and cleared any obstruction to the bid by moving Vince Cable and putting a glove puppet minister in charge. We will always have mass unemployment because it suits capitalism in keeping wages down. As capitalists own most of the mainstream media they will only print or say what they want you to believe. Here's a quote from an unknown source; "If the economy is the same size as it was before, but the vast majority of workers are significantly worse off, the question has to be; where has this share of the wealth gone?"
Where indeed?

Yes I wonder where it all went during Blair/Brown 13 years?......The wealth of the country declined by 7% of its GDP. " There's no money left "; remember that phrase? Most people will tell you where it went under those 13 Labour years......to coin another phrase.....' down the pan '.!

Rowdie; nobody is arguing that New Labour were wrong 'then'. That doesn't make the ConDems right 'now'. When will you get it that I'm not trying to defend New Labour but opposing the present Government who in my opinion are wrong. If you truly have the courage of your convictions then why not identify yourself by writing to the Warrington Guardian with your opinions and allowing others to agree/disagree with you rather than trolling anonymously like some kind of 'sad' keyboard warrior.

The only chance we have of that is with the Conservative Party winning the election or at least getting the most seats and being able to form a coalition with UKIP. Good chance that might happen if Scotland go 'yes'.....Labour will lose 40 plus seats in Westminster.
