What fucking austerity?

  1. Only £70 Billion? Loose change down the back of a banker’s sofa. Let Ritchie loose in the Treasury and you’ll soon see what a real budget deficit looks like!

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    At the heart of Corbynomics is a rejection of austerity……

    A perfectly sensible statement. Unfortunately a rejection of austerity is also at the heart of Gideonomics.

  3. I think you’ll find the word Richie was groping for wasn’t ‘austerity’ but ‘reality’.

    There’s a synonymity in there that confused him.

  4. It’s a rejection of austerity THIS week. Next week the Tax Research UK blog will contain the line “Ihave never said we were rejecting austerity”.

    “What austerity?” has no objective answer, because there is no such thing as objective reality, only political subjective reality. …And Martians live idown the subway in New York.

  5. ‘Prof.’ Murphy of City Univ. was captioned as such on Newsnight yesterday, against a background of King’s College chapel for some reason. What a cunt.
    Mrs W. had to restrain me from hurling the TV out the window. Thankfully there was Tony Yates, a real prof., from Brum to say PQE was bonkers.

  6. Ahhh….such a nice man having turned down dinner with the famous politician for a nice anniversary dinner with the missus. Of course, now that he can’t control the comments section in papers like this, everyone will soon witness the nasty man we all know and love.

  7. Hat tip to Devonchap

    ‘“I’ve been doing this for 13 years. We can have a different economic policy, not be beholden to banks, and not rely on austerity.”

    13 years and he has not even the first idea on economics – I’d say he was an imbecile in the absence of any contravening explanation…… like the Julius Streicher of the Hard Left…….

  8. What austerity? Why the benefit cuts and cuts to public services that are making the poor pay for the greed of the bankers…wibble, capitalism, wibble…cont’d on p.94…

  9. “against a background of King’s College chapel for some reason.”

    Probably because the BBC’s studio in Cambridge is the closest place to his home where he could be put in front of a camera.

    The other contender would be Norwich, but that’s 10 miles further.

  10. “Ahhh….such a nice man having turned down dinner with the famous politician for a nice anniversary dinner with the missus.”

    Anyone know how to search marriage records to find out if he’s making this up too? Can it be done online??
