Osborne and The EU Bill

The trouble with posh boys from Eton is that they think the rest of us are stupid. Well, Osborne, if you think we believe you got the £1.7bn bill halved then you are the stupid one.

I know you haven’t any qualifications in finance so let me help you out. EU Bill = £1.7bn OK? Annual rebate from EU = £850 million, still with me George? Use the rebate to pay some of the bill and you’re left with a Bill for £850 million, keeping up George? So the Bill hasn’t been halved as you say, it’s just that you’ve actually paid half. No? Haven’t quite got it George? Let me go through it again a bit more slowly……………

Osborne : Liar or Cheat?

Questioned on BBC’s Today programme George Osborne was asked if he would personally benefit from the tax changes on the wealthy he replied that he would be unaffected and implied that he gets less than the £150,000 per year.

According to the best information I can find he has a personal fortune of £4 million. Now either he is lying to the nation or he has engaged in extensive tax evasion or tax avoidance schemes that he is supposedly against. So it would seem that we have as Chancellor of the Exchequer either a liar or a cheat running the finances of our country; surely he should be made to explain himself or better still resign.

Twenty two of the twenty nine cabinet ministers are millionaires so to expect fairness, equality and help for the less well off would be like expecting turkeys to vote for Christmas. Wake up Britain, rise up Britain, we deserve better than this. We need to pay off our debt; not the notional paper monetary debt, because almost every country in the World is in reality bankrupt but the debt of fairness and equality that we owe to ourselves, our children, our grandchildren and generations yet unborn.
