Where is money being taken from the poor, the disabled and less fortunate? And you do know the money wasn't just given to the banks, firstly most of it was guarantees and the rest was shares and loans. And finally IT WAS THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT WHO DID THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
maybe this gov should reverse the tide then :hihi:(ill not hold my breath):hihi:

Ok, so what facts support your claim above that anybody who supports the government "is saying that they are happy that money being taken from the poor, the disabled and the less fortunate in order to pay for the mistakes of multi millionaire bankers"?

I'm sorry, I don't remember taking rather large gambles with another persons money.

 

But hey! I suppose we all make mistakes, can't just blame the bankers on this. :hihi:

 

The previous government did what they had to, the large deficit could mean that the money went where it was needed rather than where the most capital is coming from.

 

Although that doesn't mean I support labour. To be frank, I don't support any of the parties currently on offer.

I have far far more confidence in this government than the previous one.

 

Whether they can get us out of this mess is debatable.

 

Unfortunately they were left a disasterous legacy of malfeasance, overspend and debt.

 

Due to the bankers greed and stupidity.

Oh the irony.

Come on , show facts which demonstrate they are saying that.

 

Given that it is Government policy to reduce the deficit by reducing the Benefits that poor people get, how else could a supporter of the Government not be saying this.

 

They could try an alternative, by making those responsible pay for it via an increase in taxation.

 

I know it's radical, but how about making those who caused the problem pay, as opposed to those that had nothing to do with it.

I'm no great admirer of this government but what Ian Duncan Smith is trying to do with universal credit is a massive step in the right direction. His plans aren't perfect by any means but they are a massive step in the righ direction towards a much simplified benefits system. I think all the parties should be lending support because it's an important reform.

 

I hate pretty much every thing else about the government but praise where it is due.

I thought benefits just went up by 5%, whilst workers pay as gone down or stagnated, it’s the benefit claimants that should be getting less, not the workers.:)
