Pious Chuka and Starmer ignore the dirty dealings of Remain

Chuka Umunna continually insists that the Leave campaign “pledged” to pay £350M to the NHS.  Oddly he has admitted in print that no Leaver ever explicitly made such a pledge – their remarks were only suggestions.  This is confirmed by a quote he gave to the London Standard. (below).chukaumunaLabour is in such disarray, this is the sort of trivial snitching Chuka and Keir Starmer are reduced to.  Much ridiculed “independent” Professor Bob Watt from Buckingham University has even reported the Leave campaign to the CPS, charging them with “undue influence.” Continue reading

Who really benefits from the EU?

The You Gov research below shows us who really benefits from the EU.

EUbenefitsThe chart shows that the real winners from the EU are big business, the banks and finance companies and Remain politicians –  the elite!

The biggest losers are  small businesses, people on low incomes and pensioners.  The poorest.

Now we see why the grandees are so vitriolic, they have fat pensions to look forward to – or did.

As Ed Miliband comforts the “tearful and fearful” elderly on the campaign trail, he forgets to mention Labour intend to cap pensions

The article in the Daily Mirror today is genuinely upsetting, if taken at face value.  Ed Miliband on the campaign trail, meets elderly people to discuss “the vicious swathe” of Tory cuts and how to deal with them.  Tears are rolling down the cheeks of the people who talk to him, and the Mirror reports:  “Miliband is visibly moved by the encounter – in the historic market at Gravesend, Kent, on the Thames Estuary.”edcampaigntrailPossibly Ed’s distress is down to guilt.  He was jointly responsible for the decisions that created the crisis in the first place.  As admitted by Ed Balls, Labour left £73 billion of debt (graph shows how Gordon Brown irresponsibly whacked up spending and borrowing to 72% against GDP). And Liam Byrne admitted as Labour waltzed out of No. 10, “There isn’t any money.”

Maybe too, Ed Miliband was upset because he didn’t have the guts to admit to the shattered old folk that Labour will cap pensions, if they are returned to government.

“This Government is making political capital out of the most vulnerable!”  cried Ed.  Does Ed actually think he can get away with this eyewash?  Does he think voters are totally stupid?  Ed Miliband’s entire election strategy is based on his hope that voters won’t remember or understand what went on when Labour was in power.  For all his naivety, that sense of superiority that has always led him to believe he can fool all of the people all of the time is about to be his undoing.
