“SHE LEADS A GOVERNMENT THAT HAS INCREASED NATIONAL DEBT BY £700 BILLION – MORE THAN EVERY SINGLE LABOUR GOVERNMENT IN HISTORY COMBINED. WHY SHOULD ANYONE BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY OVER THE NEXT 7 WEEKS? THE TORY MANIFESTO SAID:
“WE WILL WORK TO ELIMINATE CHILD POVERTY”
THEY ONLY ELIMINATED THE CHILD POVERTY TARGETS – NOT CHILD POVERTY.”
There is something murky about this. Something rushed, panicked and badly stage managed. This election announcement has come because the CPS were to announce yesterday that the Crime Prosecution Service are considering criminal proceedings against 30 Tory MPs & members of staff for Electoral Fraud.
Given that the theme of 2016/17 has been “parliamentary sovereignty” & the stock answer given when questions are asked about how long inquiries and investigations in the UK take is: “we must allow due process”, there is a cloying, choking sickness to the irony of the fact that the Tories stole the last election and are now calling another one before their fraud can be investigated.
The irony turns severely twisted when we consider precisely who the Tories stole those seats off in the last election. They stole from Labour MPs who would have bolstered the opposition ranks. They stole from Nigel Farage, preventing the once, twice and maybe future leader of UKIP of a rightful seat in Parliament, to hold the government to account on Brexit from the right wing. They stole from the Liberal Democrats, who, like UKIP, see their democratic representation denied at a time that, constitutionally speaking, is crucial to their core policies.
The Tories fiddled the way Parliament was constituted to steal themselves a slender majority, but crucially, to disenfranchise millions of people from the two wings of the Brexit debate. That is one reason why Theresa May refuses to have a Televised Debate – she’s scared of facing tough questions about Tory election Fraud. It also conveniently stops her from having to answer for her government’s woeful record in office.
“IN 2010 THEY PROMISED TO ERADICATE THE DEFICIT BY 2015. IN 2015 THEY PROMISED TO ELIMINATE IT BY 2020. THE NEW CHANCELLOR SAYS IT WILL BE 2022 – I ADMIRE THEIR CONSISTENCY, IT’S ALWAYS:
‘IN 5 YEARS TIME’….ALL HER GOVERNMENT HAS DELIVERED IS MORE DEBT AND LESS FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS.”
The real truth is that after seven wasted years of economic failure under the Tories, they have failed to close the deficit & have added £750bn to the national debt. People’s pay is falling behind prices as 4 million children are growing up in poverty. Our schools are in crisis, as are our prisons. There are today more people than ever before on NHS waiting lists, more families than ever before are homeless & more elderly people than ever before are not getting the care they need. The reason the Tories carry on regardless is because they know they can get away with fiddling election results – a government that is not answerable to the people will not answer the needs of the people.
