Barb…who mentioned anything about a ‘dog’…? Are you feeling insecure?
I feel a cup of sweet tea is in order my dear.

Well Timmy, there you go again choosing partisan political beliefs rather than the facts. I was a senior manager in employment services in Manchester between 1992 and 2004 and I can assure you that Labours policy was to move those poor souls addicted to drugs etc. off the unemployment list to permanent disability benefits. Hence the spiralling cost of the benefits system following his appointment to PM. This had nothing to do with Thatcher, who was no fan of by the way.
Tony Blair didn’t get into power until 1997, Silly Lilly. It wasn’t until 2007, 3 years after you left your over-promotion, that Blair got around to trying to repair the mess he inherited from your Thatcher hero, with the introduction of ESA to replace Incapacity Benefit. Are there any other gaps in your memory that you would like me to fill in for you?
As for your alleged good news, after years of austerity, which is still ongoing btw, I’m looking for something better than a bag of peanuts.January 16, 2020 at 3:29 pm #179578
Ohh Timmy, my 1997 – 2004 reference was to illustrate my time in post in its totality. I can assure you that Labours changes to the benefits system in respect of re-classifying substance misusers and others came into praxis around 1988 / 1999 onwards. When Blaire left office, we had the highest benefits bill since the welfare state was created.
I remember well how British workers were spoken about in terms of lazy and unemployable, all to create the sense of urgency around importing foreign labour particularly from Eastern Europe! I’m sure you will remember (but not want to admit) the Polish employment agencies that sprang up all over the country employing solely Polish workers and refusing to accept British workers onto the books. I even remember one such agency proprietor being interviewed on Channel 4 news and stating that British workers were lazy and this went completely unchallenged. This was Labours treatment of the British working class.
I suspect why ultimately, the UK has voted to leave the EU.

You utter cretin.
Pickup a copy of “Brittania Unchained” written by Kwarteng, Truss, Raab, Patel and a n other; You may recognise a few of those names.
In it the UK worker is described as the biggest shirker going, protected by excessive employment legislation.
It lays out the road map for Brexit Britain, bye bye agriculture and manufacturing are the main selling points.January 16, 2020 at 3:44 pm #179581
Sticks and stones JP….show some self-control man….!
I have yet to read ‘Brittania Unchained’ by Kwarteng et al, however my point still stands, it was your friend Blair the great socialist who orchestrated Brexit with his disastrous policies, both home and abroad. Just to name a few, his illegal wars, his decimation of the British Working class by uncontrolled migration etc, etc, etc.
Please also remember your socialist pal is also the richest politician that ever lived, worth in excess of 100 million pounds, with his substantial property portfolio etc. Some freekin socialist, don’t you think.

Never met Tony, wrong party.
Met Teresa, Dave, & John over the years.
I can however read, and think.
Try some remedial education, you need it.January 16, 2020 at 5:01 pm #179585
I’ll let people do their own research into the facts about who grew the disability benefit bill, Lilly. Example:
“The caseload grew rapidly from the middle of the 1980s.”
Note: The Mid 80s were not the Blair glory years.
Ah, Britannia Unchained, I second that reading recommendation. Choice quote from some of the stars of our current government:
“Once they enter the workplace, the British are among the worst idlers in the world,” they write. “We work among the lowest hours, we retire early and our productivity is poor.”January 22, 2020 at 4:39 pm #179765
What a way for a “ caring “ MP to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz this weekend but by voting to deny current child refugees their fundamental rights that were denied to so many in the last World War , with horrendous consequences.
I have written to check if she did vote with the Government who seem to have learned no lessons from the past!January 23, 2020 at 8:12 am #180108
I believe it’s in the best interests of refugees child or otherwise who can no longer stay in their own country to be accommodated and cared for in the closest safe country to their own country, this in the vast majority of cases will not be the UK. Many refugees choose to pass through many safe countries in order to get to the UK, this is not what international law supports. The refuge and asylum system has been abused for years and this is what the general public are fed up with.
