Good riddance to the Marxist, IRA-loving, pacifist, anti-Semitic, anti-royalist disaster that is Comrade Corbyn AND his sycophantic followers
He and his ilk were the one and only reason I was forced to vote Tory for the first time in my life
Get out of my Labour party and crawl back under your Soviet stone NOW
PS: yes, well done Boris
This is a really ignorant thing to say. Are you guys aware of the proportion of younger people that voted Labour?
I’m assuming you/your families have no plans to need to use the NHS, schools, social care, mental health care provision, a Sure Start centre, etc. etc. in the future?
I can’t help thinking you’ve just voted massively against your own best interests. Just because it’s printed in the Daily Mail doesn’t mean it’s true.
Many youngsters including my own, don’t remember the 70’s Labour Government highlights, which is where Momentum and the Corbyn/McDonnell project would have taken us:
The three day week
Rubbish piled in the streets
Loved ones not buried for weeks and weeks
Pathetic train services and BR sandwiches yuk!
High Inflation and interest rates
National debt to the IMF
Companies brought to their knees by continual disruption by strikes.
Giving high profile publicity to Gerry Adams when our troops were being slaughtered by the IRA. Not in the Daily Mail, Oh no! Seen in the flesh on the BBC news at the time. He was regularly seen with the perpetrators of terrorism,(can you name one time when he did the same with their victims?)
Blair/Brown era, sold off gold reserves at the bottom of the market, taxed pension transactions and caused the near on total collapse of final salary schemes. De-regulated the banks which lead to individuals having credit for amounts way in excess of their ability to repay, which in turn led to the Government having to bail the financial services out. Basically with everyone who had been prudent covering the cost with stupefyingly low interest rates, which persists to this very day. The 2008 recession followed, caused, according to the apologists for new labour by a world banking collapse.
Remember who left the note left in the Treasury “ there is no money left? One can only wonder how much damage would have been caused by the lack of any fiscal probity arising from the fantasy that is Corbynomic’s, we can be sure that it would have led to the worst economic debt and collapse by the end of his term.
The NHS is always going to need higher and higher amounts of money. It is creaking not least because of the vast increase in demand for its services, leaps in medical science and treatment during a time of massive national debt. Going forward it looks like the Government will ring fence the NHS in law and with a little head room and less zeal to pay down the national debt that is going to be a good thing.
As for the rest of the points you made there is some urgency needed to protect the vulnerable who really need help. The concentration on Austerity went to fast, too quickly, however the control and balancing of the national debt is the key to providing stability for the services we all desire to see. Simply this cannot be done when the state coffers are in tatters. Why is it OK for the Government to borrow and borrow, it makes no sense in the terms of every other fiscal rule we follow. That’s the key balance the books and don’t keep borrowing.
Corbyn was a peripheral M.P near the end of his soft job in the commons. If not for Margaret Beckett’s stupidity of nominating him for the leaders contest Labour might have had a balanced and rounded leader.
At least I’m really proud of voters like Paddy he is absolutely 100 % spot on
