Are you referring to his "not living in the real world" line? That's a bit of a reach.

 

 

Yes. If you're going to accuse people of not living in the real world, then I'd argue almost nobody in the UK is living in the real world, from a poverty perspective.

 

 

Out of interest, do you have anything of substance to add Ray? Maybe a refute as to why industrialisation isn't the biggest whack to the poor, or why austerity is, or even something else? It's always nice to get your ad hominem stuff, but your actual opinion on the topics at hand would a nice change.

 

 

Edit: that wasn't as intended to sound as wanky as it does. I'm just not entirely sure what your issue is with what I posted and would like to know why you think it's not true/what your alternative take on it is.

Incorrect.

 

 

Correct.

 

 

Why? I didn't say they don't. I said it's not the worst thing to happen to the poor. Which it isn't.

 

 

Why would I do that, austerity has made the poor poorer. Never stated otherwise.

 

 

 

No offence, but you come across as hysterical.

 

I'm on your side when it comes to the Tories and austerity. It's your shrieking hyperbole I've issue with.

 

 

Your posts say otherwise or it was the wording off them, thats what i had an issue with.

 

As for shrieking hyperbole as those in utter poverty how they feel about that.

Rich coming from someone who goes out of their way to justify Boris and Tory policies.

It's not true in a domestic sense either though, as I said in the post I've just quoted. 

 

Also, Maroonlegions introduced global first. Again, in the post I quote.

 

The vast majority of the poor haven't been impacted by Tory austerity in any way shape or form. In fact, they've probably never even heard of the Tories.

The vast majority of poor don't live in the UK, Ray. Tory austerity has had no impact on them...sadly though, the Tory form isn't the only austerity in existence, as much as that may surprise people.

 

 

Show me were i ever stated GLOBAL??

 

Show me were i USED the term GLOBAL in my post to you.??

 

You know very well that i was talking about UK austerity.

 

 It was YOU for some reason trying to imply i was??

"The law of the UK prevents us from openly being a far-right shitehouse, ergo The Law is lefty, ergo it must be destroyed"

 

This is the logic.

Pretty much on the money. The thing is, once many of the Tory-types are directly affected by the introduction of these extreme policies/legislation, they suddenly realise what they voted for, but of course it’s too late then.
 

It’s the exact same in my role as a Union Rep. The previously rabid anti-Union in my workplace flocked to the Union to sign up when our employer used ‘Fire and Rehire’ to take away peoples final salary pensions and remove other so-called ‘perks’. Absolute hypocrites.

It's funny how WFH worked for two years when the government said we had to but all of a sudden, it now doesn't.

 

Thankfully my employer isn't as backwards as the PM and I'll continue WFH only going into the office when it's absolutely required. Which believe it or not, isn't very often.

Exactly.  They basically want to ensure that they literally can keep an eye on you and make you work every second of your hours , when as ive said before its been proven that people working from home works just as much as those working in offices .  In fact sometimes more.

It comes down to the difference between good workers and piss takers. If you're good at your job,  productive, conscientious etc then working from home is magic. You can smash it, without being interrupted by the wasters at work. 

 

On the other hand, there are folk who just don't work unless there's somebody watching over their shoulder all day. These people have been exposed by working from home.

 

It's understandable that the government would not be in favour of working from home. I've worked for a couple of government entities, as well as in the private sector. The employees I've encountered in government fall much more into the piss taker category above!

The laughable thing is that Johnson is useless Home & Away. 

So definitely a piss taker.

Mind you, we've seen photos of what Boris thinks working from home looks like

So, Boris claims that when "working from home", he gets easily distracted by cheese and coffee and ends up not doing any work.

Ergo, everybody working from home is the same as him, ergo working from home must be banned.

 

But

 

At work, he has things like suitcases of booze and birthday cakes and karaoke parties to distract him.

No wonder he never gets anything done.

Can't work at home, can't work at work.

Tory MP Rachel Maclean telling people to “work more hours or move to a higher paid job” to combat the cost-of-living crisis,

 

So aye, if you’re working two jobs and still relying on food-banks, as many are, it’s because you’re not working enough apparently. 
 

You’ll need 3 jobs now, and remember to take overtime at every one of them, oh and just eat plain pasta at 50p a bag for the rest of your life, and if you’re not willing to do all of that then it’s your fault for not handling your money or lifestyle well enough.

I think I’ve solved the homeless crisis!

 

Why don’t they just buy homes?

 

Oh I also think I’ve solved the problem of people relying on foodbanks!

 

Why don’t you go round your neighbours bins and eat their leftovers?

 

And amazingly, I’ve just solved the problem of pensioners being freezing in their own homes!

 

Why don’t they sell their house and move into their shed, heavily insulate it and chuck in a room heater and bingo!

 

Another day in the life solving problems the Tory way!

Britons struggling with cost of living should get ‘better job’, says minister

 

Ms Maclean claimed just over £213,000 in expenses last year

Cannot be accused of failing to heed her own advice, then...

Hopefully at the next  General election people get out and vote . 

 

And presently Labour are the only vote to rid us of these clowns .

 

Obviously the SNP will dominate up here but I'm more concerned about ridding us of the Tories than Independence. 

 

Starmer might be a wet fish but he seems to be a decent guy as do a lot of his shadow cabinet .

The English electorate are utterly terrifying.

 

At this stage, I don’t think theres anything the Torys can do that would put them off voting for them.

 

With years of Tory governments, and Brexit, I’m really worried about the damage Little Englanders are having on us up here in Scotland.

Even though it's only a matter of months since Priti Patel said it was absolutely fine to boo through the BLM knees being taken.
