Tory cunts set to announce cutting the threshold for free school meals down to £7400.

Unless you live in NI. There it will be £14,000

Just to keep the knuckle dragging DUP twats happy.

From Thatcher's speech to the tory party conference 1980:

Quote:
I know that ever since the war, successive Government's have constantly called on people to accept present sacrifices for the sake of future happiness.

This is such a well-worn theme it does not surprise me to find that it now arouses a certain scepticism. “Jam tomorrow” has never made a very satisfying diet.

There has been a good deal of self-deception involved in these appeals for sacrifice. I'm not going to tell you that “you've never had it so good” , but it is perhaps salutary to remember that there have been many times when we have had it a good deal worse.
Sounds familiar...

Quote:
When politicians speak of the need for sacrifice, they often delude themselves and other people in another way also.

They pretend that if only the medicine they are offering is swallowed bravely, the result will be some kind of Utopia.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Utopia is an illusion. We shall never live in a society free from material worries. We shall never live in a land which will flow with milk and honey, regardless of our skill and industry.

The better and stronger Britain towards which we in the Government are striving is not Utopia.

It's a land in which individuals will have a fair chance, by their own efforts, of winning happiness and security for themselves and their children and, in the process, enlarging the wealth and strength of their country. Life in that kind of Britain won't be easy. It wasn't easy for our parents even at the best of times, for they had, by their own hard work and foresight, to do much that, today, is done for us by the State.

I passionately believe in a gradual and orderly return to this kind of personal responsibility—responsibility for the family, to the community, to our country—not because it is the only way to create material wealth—though it is—but because it is the only way—to give life dignity and meaning and self respect.

It is only a society like this, based on individual effort and opportunity, which will ever achieve sufficient wealth to care properly for those in real need.

Socialism has tried—and, in the early days, tried genuinely and with true compassion—to do this. It failed because the system it operated couldn't create the wealth necessary to cure the very social ills that gave it birth.

But if you ask “Will it be two years or ten before our policies have solved our economic problems?” , I have to tell you that no country ever solves all its economic problems.

We shall never be able simply to sit back, free from responsibility, free from the need to work, free from the duty of caring, and just enjoy the fruits of an automated industry.

Even if we could, how many of us would find fulfilment in such an existence?

For what then, are we striving? We are striving, I believe, for a Britain which will no longer be faced with these continual economic and political dramas: these endless calls for acts of sacrifice designed to rescue the people from the follies of previous governments. I will tell you what we are striving for. We are striving for a Britain at peace with herself.


Quote:
At the next Election, we shall not be claiming to have built Heaven on earth.

But when we go to the country this we shall, I believe, be able to say:

‘We have pointed the way. We have set our people at long last on the right path’.

At the end of this Parliament I look forward with confidence to another period of Conservative Government. And at the end of that period, we shall be approaching our goal.

The goal of a country in which free people, under the law, can cope quietly and confidently with the changes and chances of life, without being continually asked to engage in vast acts of national sacrifice for the sake of some Utopia which is always round the corner.

The goal of a country in which ‘Jam today’ is actually on that menu.
And here we are, nearly 40 yrs later, with Hammond promising jam tomorrow after years of sacrifice and spending cuts.

Interesting.

''Light at the end of a tunnel'' he said. What he actually means is light at the end of a never ending Tory tunnel.

Actually though there might be "light at the end of the tunnel" Yes, it's the lights of a fucking great big train called Brexit hurtling towards us.

Recruitment agents. Absolute cunts the lot of them. A top construction company wouldn't let me give my CV directly to their office director (even though I know him) because of HR protocol and asked me to upload via CV Library. I've had 8 calls in under an hour. CV account deleted.

Fucking leeches
