Boris Johnson debate
Here it is – the great EU referendum debate featuring two of the finest debaters on opposite sides of the EU argument:

Boris Johnson vs Boris Johnson

Question Number 1.
How necessary or important is it that this referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU takes place? Over to you first, Mr Boris Johnson …
Boris Johnson debate 1
What do you have to say to that, Mr Johnson?
Boris Johnson debate 2
Strong words from Boris for his opponent Boris Johnson. Now for question Number 2.
What would happen if Britain left the EU. Mr Johnson?
Boris Johnson debate 3
And what do you think Mr Johnson?
Boris Johnson debate 4
So a huge disagreement between Boris and his opponent Boris. Question Number 3.
Some people claim it would be too difficult in practical terms for Britain to leave the EU. Mr Johnson, do you agree?
Boris Johnson debate 6
Mr Johnson? Do you agree with Mr Johnson?
Boris Johnson debate 5
Question Number 4 for Boris. Why do you think staying in the EU would be better for Britain’s businesses?
Boris Johnson debate 9
And Boris … why do you think leaving the EU would be better for Britain’s businesses?

So Boris with a clear difference of opinion with himself there. On to question number 5. What do you think about Turkey joining the EU?
Boris Johnson debate 12
Your retort to Mr Johnson, Mr Johnson?

OK, thank you both. Question number 6. What do you think of the TTIP trade deal between the EU and the US? Boris?

Former Prime Minister, David Cameron, offered an EU referendum to see-off UKIP and to appease the Eurosceptic right-wing of his party.

Sadly, the result has been a coup, so fast and ingenious that people didn’t even see it coming. Many still can’t see it.
Theresa May has taken over the government of Britain without even a ballot or a bullet.

Theresa May, a lukewarm Remain campaigner during the EU Referendum, has now shown her true colours, pushing and planning for a hard-Brexit, with open relish and exuberance.

With what democratic mandate can Mrs May and her band of Brexiteers now take the country on such a permanent and far-reaching path? Theresa May isn’t claiming that the General Election of 2015 has given her a mandate to "change the country forever." No, Theresa May is claiming that the EU Referendum has given her the power to permanently change the country. A Referendum, with the most simplistic of questions, and with a most narrow margin.

No other instructions were given by the electorate. Nobody voted for what Leave means, or what type of Brexit would be acceptable.

She said in her keynote speech at the Tory Party annual conference last week that it was, “a revolution in which millions of our fellow citizens stood up and said they were not prepared to be ignored anymore.”
That hasn't stopped her from ignoring 16 million voters - very almost half of those who voted - who did not want Britain to leave the EU. They were barely even mentioned in her conference speeches.

Mrs May said this was, “A once-in-a-generation chance to change the direction of our nation for good. To step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to be.”

But of course, she isn’t asking any of us “what kind of country we want to be.” She is telling us.

She went on to say:
“The referendum was not just a vote to withdraw from the EU.”
But, actually, it was. That’s all it was.
A vote to withdraw from the EU, by a slim majority, in a referendum that was only advisory.

No other questions were asked in the Referendum except ‘Remain’ or ‘Leave’.

If Mrs May now wants the Referendum to mean more than just ‘Leave’ – as she is now claiming Why is she afraid to allow Parliament to debate and vote on Brexit, instead of our newly imposed political masters doing irreparable damage to our country in the same way that another leader did to his country?

Why not to vote Labour

Ed Balls faced calls to 'come clean' about Labour's failure to tackle tax evasion while he was City Minister in the wake of revelations HSBC helped 7,000 wealthy Britons avoid millions of pounds in tax.

Tired: The Labour leader struggles to keep his eyes open during a photocall yesterday morning 10.2.2015

Ed Miliband promised yesterday that if Labour wins the next election he will double paid paternity leave. New dads will be entitled to take four weeks off work and receive £260 a week. Were is that money coming from? 10.2.2015

Ed Miliband’s relationship with business hit a new low last night after he snubbed a major gathering of company executives.
The Labour leader, who is struggling to persuade business leaders that he is on their side, stunned organisers of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) annual conference by telling them he was too busy to attend. 11.2.2015

Britain's economy should be more like FRANCE because its workers are better, says Labour

·         Chuka Umunna said French workers were more productive than in the UK
·         He said French workers produce as much in four days as UK staff do in five
·         Comes days after a top bank said Labour would make UK more like France

The Labour leader said: “The deed of variation is something that my mother did 20 years ago. That was just a decision she made. I paid tax as a result of that transaction, I’ve avoided no tax in that”. What his mother did would have been done with his and his brother's knowledge and agreement. Yes, he paid all the tax due, but that tax was minimised by his mother's actions. I don't know what annoys me more - his blatant hypocrisy or the fact that he clearly thinks that all of us plebs are really thick.


Neil Kinnock has dismissed concerns about Labour’s flagship mansion tax policy, saying it would not cost property millionaires any more each month than the price of a single lunch out.
The former party leader said: ‘For the people who are asset-rich and very prosperous, a couple of hundred quid a month isn’t going to make a difference. They would spend that on lunch.’
Those owning homes worth between £2million and £3million would have to pay £250 a month. But the charge is likely to be much higher for those with more expensive properties. 
No mention of those who are asset rich but cash poor?




Ed Miliband facing backlash from universities over ‘financially illiterate’ plans to cut fees from £9,000 to £6,000 to be funded by raid on private pensions 

·         Miliband fears his credibility would be hit if he backs down on pledge
·         Vice-chancellors have warned that it could cause ‘colossal’ damage
·         MoneySavingExpert's Martin Lewis calls plan ‘financially illiterate’

Ed Miliband's plan to cut university tuition fees was yesterday facing mounting opposition - with even a former Labour No10 aide joining the attack.
There were predictions last night that the party could descend into civil war over the controversial proposals after ex-Tony Blair aide Huw Evans was joined by the leader of Britain's nurses in challenging the plans.
Mr Miliband has said his pledge to slash the fees from £9,000 a year to £6,000 is 'cast-iron', adding the plan will be a 'red line' in any possible future coalition talks.
But the plan – to be paid for by cutting middle-class pension pots – has been condemned as 'financial illiteracy' by some critics, while university chiefs warn it could jeopardise the scrutiny of their long-term funding.


The migration chaos left by Labour: Over 13 years one immigrant came into the UK every minute and number of people in Britain born abroad rose by 3.6million

Immigrants arrived in Britain at the rate of almost one every minute during the ‘open door’ years under New Labour, a devastating audit reveals.
The influx caused the foreign population to swell by 3.6million between 1997 and 2010.
The figure was four times higher than the previous 13 years and equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities outside London – Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield and Bradford.
Today the spotlight switches back to Labour’s own record, following the publication of a comprehensive study by the think-tank MigrationWatch.
It found that, through a combination of deliberate policies and ‘cock-up’, 7.23million immigrants were allowed to arrive in the UK – almost one every minute.

The terrifying prospect of the Scots ruling England is now all too real:

The General Election in May could give Labour and the Tories equal representation in the Commons, with the Nationalists sweeping Scotland to hold 56 out of 59 seats, and the balance of power at Westminster.
Following such a vote, the most plausible outcome would be a Labour minority government led by Ed Miliband, and sustained in power by Nicola Sturgeon and her tartan army. Shewould name her price for supporting Labour, which would include large sums of English taxpayers’ cash to fund the Scottish socialist dream. 

Miliband will have to dance to Scots' tune

When is MILIBAND ever going to tell anyone how he intends to run Britain...Tell us where the money is coming from to deliver all the SPENDIONG  PLEDGES he has made, tell us how he will eradicate the DEBT left behind by BROWN, who he was the main advisor to, last time in office. Tell us why his party threw the doors open to the world to come to Britain and be given " FREE BENEFITS",  and cause the NHS to virtually grind to a halt, the EDUCATION SYSTEM in tatters, the INFRASTRUCTURE  GRIDLOCKED, create a MASSIVE HOUSING SHORTAGE.... TELL US THE ANSWERS MILIBAND

Labour MPs are hatching secret plans to wreck any deal with the Scottish Nationalists by holding an emergency summit after the Election.
A meeting of the entire Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) would be convened in order to veto any attempt by Mr Miliband to win Downing Street by brokering a deal with Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP.

Labour MPs say the possibility of forming an alliance with a party which wants to break up the UK is already alienating many of their core voters on both sides of the border.

CAMERON you are a Liar           

David Cameron today pledges to protect a raft of pensioner benefits to ensure 'dignity and security in retirement'.
In a major pitch to grey voters, the Prime Minister will vow to continue paying for the winter fuel allowance, free bus passes, TV licences, prescriptions and eye tests for as long as he is in Downing Street.
He will repeat the pledge, which he first made at the last election, as he rejects the argument that such benefits are an 'unnecessary luxury' in times of financial difficulties.
Instead, he said it is 'our fundamental duty' to care for those who have 'done the right thing'.
They deserve 'comfort, independence, companionship, health' he said in a speech, adding: 'No one has put in as much as our elderly. These people have fought wars, seen us through recessions – made this the great country it is today.

'They brought us into the world and cared for us, and now it's our turn – our fundamental duty – to care for them.'

David Cameron, you are a LIAR. I repeat you are a LIAR. I am a pensioner. I worked and paid tax all my working life. I still pay tax on my pension, but because I live in France which has been declared a hot country, by incorporating the temperatures for some tropical French territories you have taken away my winter fuel allowance. I repeat, David Cameron you are a liar. Sue me if I am wrong!!!
