Why not to vote Labour

Ed Balls faced calls to 'come clean' about Labour's failure to tackle tax evasion while he was City Minister in the wake of revelations HSBC helped 7,000 wealthy Britons avoid millions of pounds in tax.

Tired: The Labour leader struggles to keep his eyes open during a photocall yesterday morning 10.2.2015

Ed Miliband promised yesterday that if Labour wins the next election he will double paid paternity leave. New dads will be entitled to take four weeks off work and receive £260 a week. Were is that money coming from? 10.2.2015

Ed Miliband’s relationship with business hit a new low last night after he snubbed a major gathering of company executives.
The Labour leader, who is struggling to persuade business leaders that he is on their side, stunned organisers of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) annual conference by telling them he was too busy to attend. 11.2.2015

Britain's economy should be more like FRANCE because its workers are better, says Labour

·         Chuka Umunna said French workers were more productive than in the UK
·         He said French workers produce as much in four days as UK staff do in five
·         Comes days after a top bank said Labour would make UK more like France

The Labour leader said: “The deed of variation is something that my mother did 20 years ago. That was just a decision she made. I paid tax as a result of that transaction, I’ve avoided no tax in that”. What his mother did would have been done with his and his brother's knowledge and agreement. Yes, he paid all the tax due, but that tax was minimised by his mother's actions. I don't know what annoys me more - his blatant hypocrisy or the fact that he clearly thinks that all of us plebs are really thick.


Neil Kinnock has dismissed concerns about Labour’s flagship mansion tax policy, saying it would not cost property millionaires any more each month than the price of a single lunch out.
The former party leader said: ‘For the people who are asset-rich and very prosperous, a couple of hundred quid a month isn’t going to make a difference. They would spend that on lunch.’
Those owning homes worth between £2million and £3million would have to pay £250 a month. But the charge is likely to be much higher for those with more expensive properties. 
No mention of those who are asset rich but cash poor?




Ed Miliband facing backlash from universities over ‘financially illiterate’ plans to cut fees from £9,000 to £6,000 to be funded by raid on private pensions 

·         Miliband fears his credibility would be hit if he backs down on pledge
·         Vice-chancellors have warned that it could cause ‘colossal’ damage
·         MoneySavingExpert's Martin Lewis calls plan ‘financially illiterate’

Ed Miliband's plan to cut university tuition fees was yesterday facing mounting opposition - with even a former Labour No10 aide joining the attack.
There were predictions last night that the party could descend into civil war over the controversial proposals after ex-Tony Blair aide Huw Evans was joined by the leader of Britain's nurses in challenging the plans.
Mr Miliband has said his pledge to slash the fees from £9,000 a year to £6,000 is 'cast-iron', adding the plan will be a 'red line' in any possible future coalition talks.
But the plan – to be paid for by cutting middle-class pension pots – has been condemned as 'financial illiteracy' by some critics, while university chiefs warn it could jeopardise the scrutiny of their long-term funding.


The migration chaos left by Labour: Over 13 years one immigrant came into the UK every minute and number of people in Britain born abroad rose by 3.6million

Immigrants arrived in Britain at the rate of almost one every minute during the ‘open door’ years under New Labour, a devastating audit reveals.
The influx caused the foreign population to swell by 3.6million between 1997 and 2010.
The figure was four times higher than the previous 13 years and equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities outside London – Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield and Bradford.
Today the spotlight switches back to Labour’s own record, following the publication of a comprehensive study by the think-tank MigrationWatch.
It found that, through a combination of deliberate policies and ‘cock-up’, 7.23million immigrants were allowed to arrive in the UK – almost one every minute.

The terrifying prospect of the Scots ruling England is now all too real:

The General Election in May could give Labour and the Tories equal representation in the Commons, with the Nationalists sweeping Scotland to hold 56 out of 59 seats, and the balance of power at Westminster.
Following such a vote, the most plausible outcome would be a Labour minority government led by Ed Miliband, and sustained in power by Nicola Sturgeon and her tartan army. Shewould name her price for supporting Labour, which would include large sums of English taxpayers’ cash to fund the Scottish socialist dream. 

Miliband will have to dance to Scots' tune

When is MILIBAND ever going to tell anyone how he intends to run Britain...Tell us where the money is coming from to deliver all the SPENDIONG  PLEDGES he has made, tell us how he will eradicate the DEBT left behind by BROWN, who he was the main advisor to, last time in office. Tell us why his party threw the doors open to the world to come to Britain and be given " FREE BENEFITS",  and cause the NHS to virtually grind to a halt, the EDUCATION SYSTEM in tatters, the INFRASTRUCTURE  GRIDLOCKED, create a MASSIVE HOUSING SHORTAGE.... TELL US THE ANSWERS MILIBAND

Labour MPs are hatching secret plans to wreck any deal with the Scottish Nationalists by holding an emergency summit after the Election.
A meeting of the entire Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) would be convened in order to veto any attempt by Mr Miliband to win Downing Street by brokering a deal with Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP.

Labour MPs say the possibility of forming an alliance with a party which wants to break up the UK is already alienating many of their core voters on both sides of the border.
