It's breathtaking, isn't it?

Are we just supposed to believe whatever or lizard overlords tell us, because they are the elite and we are the plebs and it's part of knowing our place? It seems to me to be the case.

But then we see every day people who are prepared to believe all sorts of rubbish (like Liz Jones being real) and it's the stock in trade of politicians to lie like this. Genuine scepticism and critical thinking are pretty rare commodities.

I reckon there might be private prosecution (or at least a citizen's arrest) in nicking Foxy for treason.

The Prime Minister could use a mini-reshuffle in the spring to rehabilitate Dr Fox, who resigned as defence secretary in October 2011 over his links to his unofficial adviser and best man, Adam Werritty.

Some of Mr Cameron’s closest aides want Dr Fox to return as chief whip in a move that would be popular with the Tory Right and would give him the authority to act against any evidence of plotting against Mr Cameron.

Supporters of the former Cabinet minister say he has behaved with loyalty to the Government since his resignation. He has remained close to leading Conservative ministers including George Osborne, the Chancellor, and Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, both of whom, it is understood, would welcome his return to the Cabinet.

Absolutely incredible. First the fraudster Laws, now this cunt. No shame whatsoever. This shower of shit make New Labour at its worst look like a model of probity.

David Cameron is considering bringing back Liam Fox, the former defence secretary, to the political front line in a move to stop plotting against his leadership.



That would be the best move since Hitler invited Tom Cruise to the Fuhrer conference. :lol:

Looking back the incredible thing about Fox is that Cameron even referred him to Sir Alex Allen. He didn't with Hunt.

Independent arbiter of ministerial conduct who can't investigate without the Prime Minister's say so. A joke.

He's back in the news today, and calling "for the chancellor to drop protected spending for schools, aid and the NHS."
Quote:
In a speech on the economy to the Institute of Economic Affairs on Monday, the former defence secretary will also urge a wholesale rethink of earnings and savings taxation, including a capital gains tax holiday, to breathe life into the ailing economy.

I hate this cunt with a passion. Not even remotely chastened by having been exposed as a corrupt bastard - not a scrap of humility there. Is he prepared to cut Trident? There's £25bn up front.

He'd be in a dead heat with IDS for biggest cunt in the cabinet if he was still there.

The language of our economic debate has become skewed towards a socialist view of the world – tax cuts are labelled as ‘cash handouts’ from the Government when they are really just letting you keep your own money; cuts to allowances or benefit entitlements are labelled as ‘taxes’ and yet they take nothing that you already have. The underlying premise is that all money is ‘public money’ when actually, there is no such thing. There is only taxpayers’ money and Government should keep its greedy hands off it.


Pure, unadulterated, grade-A bullshit. The only thing propping up the whole rotten edifice of capitalism is state and central bank intervention. Why do these people think public spending has been so high since 2008? Because the private sector is fucked and leveraged up to the gills - it's in no position to drive a recovery and just peddling Thatcherite homilies about 'getting government out of the way' in no way reflects the reality of the situation. He also repeats the fallacy that government spending is financed solely from taxation. Quite clearly, it isn't.

Imagine having this callous wanker as your GP. Jesus Christ.

Standard Thatcher/Friedmanite bollocks. Completely unable to accept their basic premise is utterly fucked, they instead blame distortions caused by the market not being totally free and pure for its painfully obvious failings.

Is this his attempt to run for leadership? I think Labour should just let them destroy themselves and come in with nice policies every now and then.

He's always struck me as the most egomaniacal of a particularly self-obsessed collection of those who serve themselves. When you consider some of the other names in that collection, it's quite frightening. Chilling, even.

It is unacceptable that wages in the public sector should be rising twice as fast as in the private sector


Don't you just love it when Tories pretend to give a fuck about private sector workers? I've said it before and I'll say it again - anybody who is seriously concerned about low pay would support the extension of collective bargaining to more workplaces. Anything else is just flannel.
