Labour, Tory ,Liberal Dem. what the hell someone dies fighting for his country and a man writes a personal note of thanks for what he did laid down his life . Did he have write? no, makes me think he feels something.OK his writing is on par with mine and we both have problems with our sight, A major crime according to the Sun Newspaper. I wonder what sort of editor would allow crap like this to be printed.The sun is the only paper i know which as a front and a back that is worth a quick glance. The rest is normally tat.If you read every thing this paper prints God help you.The Sun in my opionion used a mothers grief and for that it proves how low it would sink in the Gutter.
- I for one think you have created your own Problems when you could not face up to your responsibilities and Select Hazel Blears. If this seat falls which the chance gets stronger every day then i hope you all look back, and think of what you have done.The Tory party will be a disaster for this country and this city and i see little in the efforts of ether yourselves as a local party and Nationally to offer any creditable alternative.It’s funny when i feel like a one man crusade, what ever happened to a party that fought for the rights of the individual. The Liberal Democrats may be small in number but offer a more credible choice to the electorate,than a party that seems intent on self destruction.
David Cameron is WRONG on poverty says Mandelson
- By Lord Mandelson, Business Secretary 15/11/2009
David Cameron said he wanted to eradicate poverty, help the disadvantaged and unemployed by rolling back government and creating a new culture of responsibility.
He said he doesn’t believe in big government, but in big society. Cut back government, he said in a speech last week, and we will become a stronger society. It’s part of David Cameron’s drive to convince us that he is a new type of Tory.
But it’s an old and familiar Tory line. Of course we care about the less fortunate, they say. But let private charity sort it out. What we need is to look after each other, rather than looking to government for help.
But it can’t answer the question: What if charity isn’t enough? What about the people who fall through the gaps? Those gaps are why government exists.
David Cameron says we have become more selfish and individualistic because of government. Well, some of the least selfish people in our society spend their working lives in hospitals, schools and our police and military.
David Cameron had a long list of things Britain needs. Early education through Sure Start. Good schools. Better adult education.
He portrays himself as a strong defender of the NHS. But these things can’t be provided by charities and voluntary organisations alone. We provide them collectively – through government.
David Cameron sees government and society as different things. That’s easy when you’re rich and can buy the services you need, when you want them. It’s easy to say charity is the answer when you know you’re never going to need it.
Government isn’t perfect – it will always need reform and improvement. We should be pushing to make public services more local and personal.
But for millions of British people government is how they get a fair deal and a clear shot at opportunity in life. David Cameron will never be a progressive so long as he doesn’t believe that.
But maybe that’s the point. Maybe the PR executive in David Cameron knows that he can say one thing and mean another. And nobody will notice until it’s too late.
