The tories though have never thought fairly for everyone.They just fight for their own.The Bankers were bailed out by the good old taxpayer and the working class got Austerity.Then there is privatisation,mostly sold on the cheap so the money men earn a fortune.The thing that really winds me up about it,is the taxpayer that still subsidises the private companies.
Another example this week,May`s MP`s lost their seats,they automatically get 28K plus other expenses,but May said she is going to help them out ,even though most of them have 3 or 4 other jobs.You couldn`t make it up,could you?
That is why many despise these people.
All of that may very well be true Terry. It's an opinion.
But what has that to do with a fire in a block of flats?
You - along with many others - seem to be blaming this fire on "cuts", the Tories, the PM, Austerity programmes, capitalism and just about anything else that can be lumped in - as if a fire in a block of flats would never happen under a Labour government. I assume, by this logic, that Kings Cross was the Tories fault too? And therefore Aberfan was the Labour Party's fault?
This fire was not political. It was tragic event that took the lives of a lot of people.
To try to make political capital out of it - which the left are doing without a doubt - is repellent.
There are systems in place to ensure that building materials used on any project are considered acceptable by experts. To act as if some greedy developer popped down the market and got a load of cheap crap to bung on his block of flats ignores reality.
Materials must be properly licensed for use. They are inspected and OKd by experts. A council has building inspectors to ensure that the materials are correct, and correctly installed. And no building gets signed off for occupation unless he is happy and has OKd the project.
Sometimes all these many experts in their fields get it wrong, and a set of circumstances emerge that was unforeseen. Like Kings Cross. To then blame the PM is like blaming her because my car was recalled for a fault on the airbag.
And Thames. Mate, you've gone off on one again about the "left wing media". Can I suggest that you look at the BBC Website - your favourite lefty-liberal targets. Their coverage is very balanced. Calm. Factual.
Now have a look at Sky's Website. The right wing press. Murdoch. It is a disgusting, inflammatory, accusatory collection of shouty nonsense. It appears it is the right wing press who are getting all foamy-mouthed in this case mate.
Frog mate, I actually man love you for your wonderful posts. But, how the fuck as an intelligent man you regard
Sky as 'right wing'....have you been on a crack pipe?...Sky, like most media outlets and political parties are left.
To watch 90% of media attacking Trump, Farage and May has been shameful. Desperate losers having a public dig at what the majority voted for.
Desperate fucking losers that keep on whining as they didnt get their own way.
Hope you are well old chap.
Too early for me to indulge in my crack pipe mate. I save that for the afternoon on a glorious Sunday like today. Nice roast dinner, maybe treat myself to a glass of something chilled, then sit back in the old armchair, put my feet up, glass of port, pick up a good book and and relax with my highly addictive, personality deforming illegal and deadly drug habit.
Mate. Rupert Murdoch? Left Wing?
The owner of:
Twentieth Century Fox Film
Wall Street Journal (USA)
The Australian (Aus)
The Daily Telegraph (Aus),
Herald Sun (Aus),
The Courier Mail (Aus),
The Sun (UK),
The Times (UK)
New York Post (USA)
The man who can make or break PM candidates in the UK. Who made sure Cameron got in. Made sure Blair got in. Made sure Maggie got in. No leader in recent memory got into office without his support.
This feller. This leading light of the gutter press.
He is a bleeding heart liberal lefty?
What I would ask is that you somehow make contact with him, and accuse him of being Left Wing.
I think it would be enough to tip him over the edge and make him give it all up and go live on an island somewhere where he can't bother decent people. Which would be nice.
