    As some one whom claims to be labour party member your views your views are very right wing, i would suggest very much in tune with the modern labour party blue tie brigade.
    which is exactly why over 200,000 members have deserted the the labour party in this country, because they pander more to the middle classes than the working man/women of this once proud nation.
    some of your views i whole heartedly agree with, but i think the true reasons we are seeing riots on our streets is

    Disenfranchised youth and the riots

    For many years now successive governments have been cutting youth services in this country, we have virtually no youth clubs system any more even funding on sport and recreation has been cut to the bone.
    We have record numbers of young unemployed approximately 951,000 of our young people are unemployed with 204,000 of these being 16 to 17 year olds and still rising with the abolition of the ema they have no prospects of employment or education on the horizon.
    They have no clubs to go to and no sports teams they can join even Sunday league football is none existent it lots of areas now, just what are these young people supposed to do.
    The state does not care they have no voice how are they supposed to affect change; they take to the streets because itís there only option, which is soon hijacked by the thugs and the criminal element in our society and we see mass rioting, with people helping themselves to whatever they can get hold of (which is just what the politician bankers and social elite get away with day in day out along with peers being released from jail after nine weeks of a nine month sentence if this was someone who had fiddle there housing benefit they would of been serving years not weeks or months ) and the police standing by and watching because it serves the purpose of the police force to do so because of impending government cuts, so the rioting escalates.
    Shops looted and burned property destroyed and many innocent people injured and killed.
    The government issues a no nonsense approach and lots of young people are criminalised and jailed, including people who made stupid comments on social network sites, so now we have lots of young people with criminal records who stand even less chance of gaining employment some possibly rightly so.
    But at the same time these young people are seeing the social elite in our society getting away with far worse crimes with no prosecutions, what kind of message is this to these young people.
    If we disenfranchise our young and take everything away from them, what should we expect to happen, if they just sat at home and played on games consoles? They would be wrong, (the lazy feckless youth) if they form gangs and hang around on street corners they would be wrong, but just what they are supposed to do, these young people see no future in this country.
    We cannot just consign our youth to the long term unemployed, by doing so we are demoralising a whole generation, these young people are our future too the future tax payers that will keep our system going.
    By doing this we create more violence on our streets because they form gangs some get involved in drugs and crime
    And violent behaviour or just general nuisance in their neighbourhoods all created because society puts them at the bottom of the pile.
    This problem is not going to go away in fact it is a growing problem, when is someone going to realise that if the issues are not addressed we are going to see far worse on our streets than the august 2011 riots we are storing up a potential time bomb because these people are the electorate of tomorrow and with no faith in our system as it is they will want to effect change, which may not be change we wish to see.
    There needs to be someone in the government that engages with these young people not just belittles them all the time and cuts the services that affect them the most.
    For many years now we have been crying in this country about skill shortages, why has training our youth in these skills not been a priority, because itís cheaper to bring in migrant workers from Eastern Europe and the capitalists only care about profits not people, we cannot blame our young people for taking to the streets the system has to change, unfortunately it is not possible to protest peacefully in this country any more without the subversive elements becoming involved and everyone being tarred with the same brush.
    We are in the worst recession this country has seen for over 30 years and it is only going to get worse because I believe, we have not yet seen the full extent of the banking debt crisis which is why Mr. Osborne will not implement the banking reforms because some banks may collapse if he does.
    With Mr. Osbornes austerity measures are only affecting the working classes how can we be all in it together, when the people that caused the crisis in first place get more in bonuses than I earn in a year.
    They cannot be feeling the pressures of ever increasing fuel and utility bills the same as the ordinary working people of this country or the old couple who have had their care reduced because of council cut backs, or the elderly who will freeze to death this winter because they cannot afford the utility bills.
    We sure as hell are not all in it together are we.
    There is a study just published by the IFS that concludes just what I am saying that it is the working people of this country who are bearing the brunt of Mr. Osbornes austerity programme.
    The study goes on to say that the people most affected are the people who can least afford it, the bottom half of the income bracket and that income in these brackets has fallen by an average 3.5% the largest single drop in income since 1981(The Thatcher years) effectively returning incomes to the level of 2004 and that the decline in these income brackets will continue until at least 2014 and could continue to drop for up to 10 yrs.
    With growth forecasts being downgraded and the building industry beginning to stagnate, and UK output falling the recession is only just beginning to take real effect.
    The health bill going through the lords will again create chaos because I believe it is the first steps to privatisation and the Americanisation of our health care system, which will affect us all in some way because the sick and disabled in this country will not be able to afford health care, the government are already targeting disabled people by stopping there benefits and forcing them on to job seekers allowance, we all agree the benefits system needs to change but this government is using these change to target the vulnerable in our society in order to say we have cut millions of the benefits system.
    This government has not finished either Mr. Cameron as already stated that he want employers in deprived areas to be able to opt out of the minimum wage act.
    This will create a new under class in our society with people unable to live on what they earn and less and less being paid in benefits, who knows we may even see the re-introduction of the workhouse .
    Is it any wonder our young people and disenfranchised and have no faith in our society any longer while the capitalists get richer by the day and we all pay for their reckless? Criminal behaviour

    You are correct regarding the ultra neo fascist composition of this illegal cobbled up union. But, you really only have your party to blame, and that labour circus is getting even more bizarre by the second. Just who could take the Millibuds seriously: do any of the obviously brain dead labour executive really think that these two unprepossessing turds should be let out of the chimps cage.
    One thing is certain it is not 5 years of Nazi domination, with lobour as the opposition it is likely to be forever.

    Expounder, it's called survival of the fittest; with strong elements of the will to power. The Lib Dems are a moderating factor in the already centring Conservative Party.

    Is the labour the winner?

    It could be argued that it would be in Tory interests (but not those of the country) for them to remain in opposition as any lliblab alliance will have little if any validity as a coalition of losers. They would be an extremely powerful opposition and another election could be forced very quickley, with a probable outcome of a decisive majority to Conservative.

    Cameron can afford to be fairly firm if his party is behind him in this respect.

    Like all dissemblers, claiming that the country did not tell your rotten party, along with the rest of the tory and lib dem twisters, to' bog off' forever, is clear indication that your not interested in our country, only what you can get out of it. To claim that this Gordanus or Droopy Dave debacle was anything else, other than a total rejection by the country, is surely stretching credulity.There are other people in this country who do not wave political flags about but calmly and successfully lead productive and honest lives sans the need to be a part of some gangster political party usually robbing the taxpayer blind. For the love of God go, get out of our lives and let us repair our country our way and without your hindrence.
    We do not want, nor need, your lot, or the stuffing tories or lousy liberals, with a 'Barebones' Parliament we can save our country, AT LESS THAN THE COST OF KEEPING A GAGGLE OF SOME HUNDREDS OF CHANCERS and hangars on IN TAXPAYER CLOVER.

    Didn't your party let us down by your inability to be tough?

    If you had ditched brown last year and taken David Milliband you would have seen a vote to yourselves that is more than the tribal.

    That is the reason why you scraped barely more than Michael Foot. You lost all the votes you gained 13 years ago. Labour is stagnant and seen as ineffective once again.

    You are using a country who would like to vote labour to get rid of your leader. The vote is anti Gordon Brown, not pro anyone else on the whole.
    You have what you deserve and frankly browns determination to retain power by prostituting all his policies makes me queasy

    I hope the BBC and Sky debates are not held in the same game squizz fashion it did take awake any gravitas that should have come with a priministerial debate, or got some manic music, a giant clock and a gong. The Lib dems may get some aperthetic voters rather than take other parties as they have the liberty to say what people want to hear and have had the time to learn how to say it in an appealling manor.

    I have to say in each topic I agreed with both Nick and Gordon in each topic, in crime for instance Nick said atach anti social behavior early and get trouble makes to face what they've done and there less likely to escalate into crime. Gordon said that training in prison allows criminals to intragrate into society. These can combine affectively to reduce crime. I say this as an example of cross party co operation which in a the case of a hung parliment will take place and in that event which party do you believe the Libs will side with?

    I 'am sorry but that is not what "Cafod" of which 'Fair Trade' is an integer actually does, as often with Charities and Trusts the PR Blurb is always 99% different to the [I]actual [/I]. Cafod ie The Catholic Church, which we thankfully dumped out of UK with the Reformation, never ceases to refrain from swindling the poor and unprotected wherever they are. This is nothing but a Gangster Org. steeped in theft and Blood. Hitlers greatest Champions. No poor Farmers live better as a resultant of 'Fair Trade' Simply registering to use a 'Fair Trade label costs an arm and a leg. And the money never sees a 'poor farmer' - God Forbid!
    Farming land around the world is in high demand by food growers to supply supermarkets who will buy anything at a price. There is no shortage of ruses to increase the cost of basic low quality goods of which 'Fair Trade' is a goldmine for the supermarkets. It always seems to me that well meaning individuals are dupes of the whole charities scenario.And to often we take these charity tricksters at face value and this includes the Co-op.
  12. Expounder's Avatar
    The modern Co-operative deals in fair trade which gives people in destitute lands a fighting chance to sell the produce at a price that can sustain them. I thought this idea might appeal to those opposed to immigration to Britain as it would encourage people to become independent and self reliant on their own countries.

    Labour/ Conserative, what difference is it to us. Labour is not representative of The Working Class, you may recall us - those who pay for the Railways so they can travel 2nd class leaving 1st free for the tory and labour party and their union friends. Those who won Two World Wars expecting to obtain decent work, education for their children, a small pension after a lifetime of paying union dues and taxes, a safe roof over their heads surrounded by a culture they know and many died for and a little medical care from people they trust. Are we ringing any bells yet?
    You salute the Cooperative: Is this the same Bank which screws its depositors, is this the same Coop Society which charges more for food in its supermarkets than Waitrose? And don't get me going on Unions and what they invest in, the financial actions of so - called 'Labour MPs' they are a rotten disgrace and so is the Cowardly Executive which supported the slaughter of our young in places we had no reason to be in, and who had no balls to dump a complete asshole like Gordanus Brown .... The last Missionary.
    Do you care no - and neither do we now. Go to the Devil you make us sick.
    And as you all threathen us with the Bogey Tories! We'll handle them were not cowards and as the Scots did Bon Voyage forever.

    sCameron and his fag Gideon are hopeless.I once only considered them unlucky,however now I consider them utterly pathetic bunglers.Let us face it these two
    would ruin a wet dream.Putting a stupid fool like Osbourne in charge of the 6th most powerful economy in the World,would be like putting a Junkie in a Chemists DDA unit.As for sCameron this creep has yet to show his Hand even about the smallest policy they intend to inflict on the Country.Also he has been
    WRONG on every single item he has spouted off about.From Hug a Hoodie to the credit crunch.The tiny band of old Etonians he surrounds himself with is only
    representative of his own tiny narrow World view.sCameron would have turned a Crunch into a double dip SLUMP,and only him and his Baronet pals would be able to shrug it off.The normal working people of this Sceptered Isle would have been torn apart much worse than even Mags Hatchet could have imagined.

    The Man is bad news,little wonder the seeds he sowed years ago are about to reap him a very bitter harvest.I wonder who is next??,Anyone for Hague again (Groan).

    If Dave Cameroon and his Bullingdon Boys and Girls don't get their acts together, come up with some 'hardened policies' that are real and practical, then Gordo McBalloon and Pals might make mincemeat of them come the Gen Eelction. I for one think that the 'Neues Arbeits Partie' (New Labour) of Pseudo-Marxist-Commies have been an utter distaster for the UK.

    Mr Cameron, get rid of these Fluffy incoherant policy statements and just get on with it. He and his advisors should be listening to what their Party root and branch are saying re: policy. Unles he is trying to 'wrongfoot' Pa Broone and Pals into thinking that the Torys are just a big bunch of 'Big Girls Blouses' and are just 'Blue-Labour-Lite MK2' as many believe them to be.

    Dave Cameron and Pals really need to shift their gears into high. Time is short and Paw McRuin-Broone will be pushed to the wire to call a date soon. Unless he really does intent to go 'On and On and On and On' just like Mrs Doyle in 'Father Ted'.

    Who knows. Pa Broone might just be stupid enough to try and engineer a National Emegergency and try to postpone all elections for another 12 months because be has 'Tractor Factories' and 'Workers & Peasants Communes' to visit!!!

    The total spent on: job seekers allowence, medical treatment and sick pay would shawly pale in comparison with the £70 billion a year lost to tax evasion. Whilst I agree that able benefit cheats should work, it does imply there are enough jobs for the the whole of the working aged, healthy, population to work in.

    Well, the hospitals are PFI - in other words rented space... MY DOCTOR SON PAYS THOUSANDS A YEAR TO PRIVATE COMPANIES FOR TRAINING COURSES, WHICH HE TELLS ME ARE NOT WORTH A DAHM. But, he understands any progress in his career is controlled by these, private, training companies. Prescriptions, for those who pay, cost a fortune, car parking is a rip off and private food sharks starve the patients, or should we say victims. Nurses are mostly Agency, at 5 times staff rates from spiv suppliers.

    How much more damage can the creep do?
