Cameron Lies 65


“It’s not often you see me and Gordon Brown in complete agreement” says Cameron.
Voting to invade Iraq?
Voting to Bomb Libya?
Bailing out the fatcat bankers with 60,000 pounds from every family in the UK?
Supporting Trident missiles?
Opposing curbs on bankers bonuses?
Supporting the security state?
Supporting the Private Finance Initiative?
Supporting “Private Provision of Services” in the NHS?
Supporting deregulation of the financial services industry?
Supporting cuts in corporation tax?
Supporting privatisation of railways and utilities?
Supporting arms sales to Saudi Arabia?

etc. etc. etc.

Get rid of the Red Tories and the Blue Tories. Vote for independence.

    “And all I’m suggesting is that to advocate the breaking up of the UK seems a rather extreme remedy for the claimed lack of class consciousness amoung the English.

    And anyway, your theory presupposes that a highly developed sense of class consciousness is a good thing.

    Many non-UK commentators have claimed – and still claim – that the persistence of a high degree of class consciousness amoung the British is precisely one of the reasons why the UK has been outperformed by many of its European competitors.”

    Well, contrary to their working class counterparts, the ruling and political establishment class do have a high degree of objective class consciousness. So I presume it’s this latter group you are referring to when you alluded to the “British” in your last paragraph.

    Why, in your opinion, isn’t a highly developed sense of class consciousness a good thing?

    In response to your opening paragraph, it’s better, in the interests of clarity, that I reproduce the words of George Monbiot as highlighted in the post at 7.24pm above:

    “If Labour has any political nous, any remaining flicker of courage, it will understand what this moment means. Instead of suppressing the forces of hope and inspiration, it would mobilise them. It would, for instance, pledge, in its manifesto, a referendum on drafting a written constitution for the rest of the UK.

    It would understand that hope is the most dangerous of all political reagents. It can transform what appears to be a fixed polity, a fixed outcome, into something entirely different. It can summon up passion and purpose we never knew we possessed. If Scotland becomes independent, England – if only the potential were recognised – could also be transformed.”

    ” Supporting cuts in corporation tax? ”

    Hmm, thought that an SNP idea. One of many ways they’re going to spend the oil money, to attract new businesses.

    Don’t tell them but something like 85% of oil revenue is corporation tax…

  • Ba'al Zevul (For Scotland)

    Kempe, true. But an independent Scotland wouldn’t be bound to charge the basic 62% CT or indeed the supplement. And by easing the tax burden on company profits, a reduction could bring marginal fields into production. It’s checks and balances. Both Tory and Labour govt’s have increased taxation as resources decline, to bail them out of their fiscal messes. To maintain production, the opposite would have made more sense.
