Coupled with an open-door immigration policy (to the extent they had no[/] idea how many immigrants were entering the UK each year. Shower the immigrants with free housing, money, healthcare etc., plus citizenship, and after some time your core vote is so loyal you can never get voted out what ever your policies.sundaymorningstaple wrote:
Now if I had written that, our friend in the UK would be all over me, even though it's the truth. I like it that all are screaming the Repuglicans are just being vindictive when you have just said what I've been saying for the past couple of weeks as well. We've given o'sama two blank cheques already that haven't done anything positive but a 'ell of lot of long term negative. And now, they just want him to show us what he's going to do before he can have it all. I think two tranches is the best policy as well. Course let Plavt get into the plonk later today and he'll be on it like gravy on a biscuit.
Well, Labour very nearly achieved that position. Meanwhile so much focus was expended on that, they really achieved almost nothing substantive despite 13 years in office. Their crowning achievement was something they managed not to do: join the euro.
A fellow member of the BNP - courtesy of Plavt, based on my similar perception of Labour. I just don't see what positives you can take from Labour's stint. Maybe good developments around encouraging entrepreneurship but the rest......??
I wonder what the real cost is of the uncontrolled influx of foreigners?
Labour made hay while the sun shone, and Gordon was a master manipulator who completely ruined our economy. A horrible, hated, bully in political circles and - from his legacy and footprint - actually quite clueless too.
