where's the money comming from?

With one new spending commitment after another, Labour seem to be winning the political promises race; from £30 coppers to free Hospital car parking, everything is going to be free.  So where's the money coming from to pay for it all ?   With more £billionaires than  ever, you'd think it would be easy to reel in the taxes, but it seems the lawyers and accountants employed by the rich, are running rings around HMRC.  So perhaps more borrowing, and forget about seeking to wind down the deficit and build a balanced budget ?  Or perhaps some PFI schemes, and saddle the grandkids with the mortgages ?   Meanwhile, on the other side of the coin, we've got the Tories promising to reduce net migration to less than 10,000pa, something they've failed to do from their last two manifestos; and we have the EU insisting that the 3million plus EU citizens be given rights to stay.  So, in the context of the pending Brexit, it all appears rather surreal; as it's quite clear that the EU are gearing up to humiliate us as a warning to the rest, and the least worst option imo will be "no deal" and a return to WTO rules, which will mean continued austerity and pain for the foreseeable future.  :(

Jeremy has planted a few more magic money trees in his back garden. Meanwhile he puts his girlfriend, Diane Abbot, on TV interviews to muddy all the issues with made up figures plucked out of the air.

I do agree that the best outcome for Brexit would be just to walk away and tell the petty bureaucrats to whistle for any money they might think they deserve. Under WTO rules we don't have to impose any tarriffs.

Well, the new wonder boy of the liberal elite, M.Macron; has described Brexit "as a crime"; which suggests he believes we should be punished.  The last people we need in Parliament at the moment are the Lib/Lab liberals, who may enjoy being punished !   :D

All workers working on these days to be paid by their employer. Anybody not working on these days to be paid by the taxpayer (N.B. if you are a taxpayer then pay yourself sucker).

:D        Well, it looks like Jeremy is keeping his options open, ready to renege on Brexit if the going gets tough. Seems he wouldn't give a commitment to see the process through, so a very good reason for not trusting him as PM.   :ph34r:
