So... Bojo is about to splash the cash, has already renationalised train franchises, is telling us than we need to rebuild school and hospitals, that investing in infrastructures will

Improve productivity etc...

I’ve always known the Labour Party was right.

How dare these clowns tell us that all these measures are right when they’ve done the complete opposite for decades.

What a bunch of hypocrites. Welcome to the world of Bojo the Marxist!

I’d rather have somebody who genuinely believes in this type of policies rather than someone that has been slagging off state intervention all his life but is going to do it by sheer opportunism and hypocrisy! I don’t think the word U turn is strong enough for this. We would be in such a better place if this had been done for the last ten years. These guys deserve to be ousted ASAP!

At least the rhetoric is there. He’s admitted being wrong all the way. But you’re right I’m not holding my breath.

The level of spending won't end up being anything remarkable.

The comparison has been with FDR's 'New Deal' - FDR increased taxes, including a wealth tax on the rich, to pay for that. Can't see the Tories raising taxes by even the tiniest amount.

Oh dear, here we go again . . .

Throughout history every nation who has suffered a major depression has used a National Building Programme Intitiative to rebiuld a devastated economy! Get the people working, get industry moving, to get the money circle going around again.

It's not Socialist it's not Marxist it's not any 'ist - it's well used and plain old common sense'ist.

Not too me.

Apparently there is a train being built that doesnt need tracks so before its built its already out of date.

Surely a cross country rail link would be more beneficial

Forget the name, it’s just state intervention! Everything the tories hate with a passion.

What’s happened to what they really believed in? Reduce public debts? Austerity? We’re they wrong all the way?

Pop corn is ready here. I can’t wait to read the Daily Heil defending state intervention as well as the right wingers here who’ve accused Corbyn and its plans to be a Marxist.

It’s funny when it’s Bojo doing it shouldn’t be called socialism or Marxism. . It should be called ‘common sense’. You couldn’t make it up! The fun has started!

I feel a sense of uneasiness from the right wingers in this thread. Fair play to them for joining in but they seem to struggle coming up with arguments and answer direct questions. They look a bit evasive don’t they. Something’s not quite right in toryland today. It looks like their world has been turned upside down and they struggle to make sense of it and to adapt their new rhetoric!

My God! You really trying hard aren’t you. I’ve told you several times that I want somebody who implements these policies by conviction and who is trustworthy. I could also add somebody with integrity and who’se not doing the opposite of what he’s advocated. And that’s not Borix the hypocrite,

Is it going to cancel Brexit tomorrow?

That’s exactly what I meant by being evasive. Your posts are a bit like Boris at PMQ. No substance, playing the man instead of the ball. No point in fudging and muddling the waters. You’ve been asked clear questions about the tories‘ common sense for example. Can you elaborate? I don’t give a toss about Mount Olympus personally.

A none sentence - doesn't mean anything - just an off-the-cuff name calling tactic with no purpose. There is no political argument in sentences like these.

"I feel a sense of uneasiness from the right wingers in this thread. Fair play to them for joining in but they seem to struggle coming up with arguments and answer direct questions. They look a bit evasive don’t they. Something’s not quite right in toryland today. It looks like their world has been turned upside down and they struggle to make sense of it and to adapt their new rhetoric!

Joining in? You mean we need to have your permission first?

You do say the most silly things - as if somehow you're sat there on Mount Olympus having a chin-wag with Dear Hera about those silly humans.

That’s exactly what I meant by being evasive. Your posts are a bit like Boris at PMQ. No substance, playing the man instead of the ball. No point in fudging and muddling the waters. You’ve been asked clear questions about the tories‘ common sense for example. Can you elaborate? I don’t give a toss about Mount Olympus personally. "

I think if you read back I have said quite a lot in answer to what is being said here. Just choose to see through your hatred of an individual to see it.

Think the unease is in the labour camp Boris going ahead on what he was elected on.Starmer saying its just a rehash of his election manifesto and not going further enough,doesnt seem that your leader has the same view on all this as you do.

"So... Bojo is about to splash the cash, has already renationalised train franchises, is telling us than we need to rebuild school and hospitals, that investing in infrastructures will

Improve productivity etc...

I’ve always known the Labour Party was right.

How dare these clowns tell us that all these measures are right when they’ve done the complete opposite for decades.

What a bunch of hypocrites. Welcome to the world of Bojo the Marxist!"

Funny how praising somebody for joining in turn into an authorisation to join in by the way. Clever if dishonest.

As for the silly things, please elaborate. You do say a lot of silly things but it's probably because we have different political views.

I have re-read your posts and I still can't see anything about your justification of the tories' common sense when what Labour has been advocating for a long time was deemed Marxist by the tories.

Who turned this country into a country of services meaning that we hardly build or produce anything here? As soon as consumption slows down, we're doomed. Thank you Thatcher.

It's obviously the right thing to do. However, it was also the right thing to do 10 years ago. But at that point the Torys did the opposite.

I am please they are finally realising you can only work your way out of this. Cutting every service possible has simply left the country in the direst of straights.

My only concern is that who will pay. I know who would have paid were this being done by a Labour government. I suspect I know who will pay under a Tory...

I’d rather have somebody who genuinely believes in this type of policies rather than someone that has been slagging off state intervention all his life but is going to do it by sheer opportunism and hypocrisy! I don’t think the word U turn is strong enough for this. We would be in such a better place if this had been done for the last ten years. These guys deserve to be ousted ASAP! "

Isn't this all largely investment that's been accounted for before, with minimal that's different. It's even the same old bullshit delivery style, for the hard of thinking.

A minuscule amount of money, not so different from the tax saved for the former pornographer Desmond, where his planning application was pushed through in 1 day, the day before he would have had to contribute tax to the local council.

It will employ some people and make some millionaires richer.

The policy is about having them run things into the ground, pay them to demolish and rebuild under looser planning standards. And thank them for having made life so bad, for so many, then letting donors profit from the misery and deaths.

This is anecdotal but true.

We had to go to a police station about 6 months.There are 4 in north lpool.It was about 8.00pm when we went and the 1st 3 were closed.Thats in a big city.

They have slashed all services to the bone and are now crowing about taking new police on.

Don't forget the police. 20,000 new officers was the claim. seems her has made a start In total, forces recruited 6,435 officers from November 2019 to March 2020, including recruitment planned before the programme was announced.

How many were cut?

This is anecdotal but true.

We had to go to a police station about 6 months.There are 4 in north lpool.It was about 8.00pm when we went and the 1st 3 were closed.Thats in a big city.

They have slashed all services to the bone and are now crowing about taking new police on.

Its estimated in the last 10 years 23,500 police jobs have gone.Well its a good job that we have a leader and home secretary who can see the problem and are fixing it.

Indeed.

Rolls eyes.

glad we can agree for once.

"Oh dear, here we go again . . .

Throughout history every nation who has suffered a major depression has used a National Building Programme Intitiative to rebiuld a devastated economy! Get the people working, get industry moving, to get the money circle going around again.

It's not Socialist it's not Marxist it's not any 'ist - it's well used and plain old common sense'ist.

And couild just as easily argue that they are long-term capitalist - if you get people working again you get industry making widgets you get profit and you get division in wealth - division in wealth brings distorted power to the profit makers . . . therefore conservative . . .

But then you could also argue that . . .

What's wrong with profit? Profit makes for jobs. Profit makes for taxes. Profit pays your morgage or rent or lease. Profit pays you holiday pay. Profit pays your sickleave. Profit pays your childcare. Profit pays for healthcare. Profit pays for education. Therefore Profit is Socialist . . .

Profit isn't a dirty word. It's a doing word.

Problem is that in this country, even if everything is working well, the City is booming, high earners get big bonuses, there never seems to be enough money left for public services when the tories are in charge. I would gladly advocate the same system as you but some reason it’s always the same people who end up winning with it.

Every time the Conservative party is in charge, waiting lists in hospitals get bigger, schools get crappier ( buildings and resources that is). Probably a coincidence...

And when it goes tits up, the state and the taxpayers bail them out.

In general I agree - but Labour have many times overspent as if somehow on a mission of mercy rather than sound fiscal policy - now if only there was a middle way you and I would be sharing the same bar space.

Probably but between the two bad solutions I much prefer the more compassionate and humanist one. And as my job is within the public service, I know there will never be enough money for it when they tories are in charge because they’d rather give tax cuts to their millionaire friends than investing in infrastructures.

As a result, Infrastructures in the UK are absolutely diabolical. I mean anybody who’s been to France, Germany or Italy will have been to compare our roads with theirs, their hospitals with ours, their train stations with ours, their public transport with ours. The bottom line is that capitalism is all about profit and not enough about the common good of society. Which is why we have crappy infrastructures compared to our more socially fairer neighbours. Far less inequalities in those countries and more redistribution of wealth!

Maybe the fact that we didn't have enough before they cut 21000 police and you're wanking over us only being 15000 on the deal so far. Plus, the new ones that are getting you hard are - new, inexperienced - but I'm sure in your utopia that won't be a problem.

And don't pull the "new government" shit. It's 95% the same cunts, just sat in different chairs. The only real difference is that none of the elected ones actually make decisions now. They're just mouthpieces to peddle the lies and bullshit that you applaud like a performing seal.

I wonder what flavour fish they'll throw at you tomorrow tomorrow.

Take something away (supported by every minister in government) then give it back again after the intervening stress on the Police force and then expect praise when you put things back.

I guess if you wish to be complicit in your own deceit then you are welcome to it.

Who is expecting praise where has that been mentioned? .If you read the thread someone said boris promised 20,000 more police i pointed out the rise in police since he was elected PM nothing more its a fact i posted it.You really need to take a look at yourself mate you're like a troll trying to pick an argument on anything i post when there is nothing to argue about.

When you start calling me "mate" it usually means that you've lost the argument

You can call me names all you wish. It demonstrates a similar point.

A government run by politicians who voted to sack 20,000+ police officers several years later promises to employ 20,000 police officers.

I am delighted that they are doing so, but they are doing nothing more than fixing a problem that they created.

Stating "as a fact" that they have begun doing this is well observed but tells us nothing about BoJo/Cummings' "new deal" which is apparently reinstating the "old deal" that years have been spent in dismantling.

Certainly agree with that. So let's nationalise and put the profit in our pockets, rather than a few people in the City (or foreign governments).

It's not but look where that profit goes.I think the railways were costed so that in 6 years they would be paid for,so that every single penny after that would go back into our economy.

As it stands now the profit goes to foreign companies and shareholders.

Johnson/Cummings lead a Conservative government.

All of its Ministers voted for Police cuts.

Pretending that there is no connection between the two is a nonsense.

You are the only person who does then.

If that's all he's there for what is he doing attending SAGE meetings and having all Ministers assistants report to him? Why is he having ministerial assistants removed by the Police? Why would Johnson not just sack him when it became politically inconvenient?

I guess if you wish to be complicit in your own deceit then you are welcome to it.Who is expecting praise where has that been mentioned? .If you read the thread someone said boris promised 20,000 more police i pointed out the rise in police since he was elected PM nothing more its a fact i posted it.You really need to take a look at yourself mate you're like a troll trying to pick an argument on anything i post when there is nothing to argue about.

When you start calling me "mate" it usually means that you've lost the argument

You can call me names all you wish. It demonstrates a similar point.

A government run by politicians who voted to sack 20,000+ police officers several years later promises to employ 20,000 police officers.

I am delighted that they are doing so, but they are doing nothing more than fixing a problem that they created.

Stating "as a fact" that they have begun doing this is well observed but tells us nothing about BoJo/Cummings' "new deal" which is apparently reinstating the "old deal" that years have been spent in dismantling.How have i lost the argument there was no argument to have? i stated a fact no more no less its you who is trolling looking to make one.I was not even posting on anything you said you chose to jump in.Glad you can see that boris/cummings as you put it are doing the right thing but dont see how they were dismantling boris was mayor from 2008 to 2016 and not sure cummings had anything to do with it at all as im sure it was boris who brought him in to run his campaign.But heyho why let the truth get in the way .

Johnson/Cummings lead a Conservative government.

All of its Ministers voted for Police cuts.

Pretending that there is no connection between the two is a nonsense.

You believe that BoJo only brought Cummings in to run his campaign?

You are the only person who does then.

If that's all he's there for what is he doing attending SAGE meetings and having all Ministers assistants report to him? Why is he having ministerial assistants removed by the Police? Why would Johnson not just sack him when it became politically inconvenient?

Your wilful ignorance becomes more apparent with each post i am saying you are talking absolute bollocks if you think cummings had anything to do with police cuts under Cameron and may and i would love to see your source."

I didn't say that Cummings did have anything to do with Police cuts.

He is, however, responsible for trying to brand current spending policy as some great "new deal" when all that is actually happening is reversing the cuts made by the same group of people previously.

"Perhaps see if it actually happens 1st.

We are going to hire 50000 new nurses

Actually its more like 30000

We are going to build 30 new hospitals

Well 8 actually

Don't forget the police. 20,000 new officers was the claim. seems her has made a start In total, forces recruited 6,435 officers from November 2019 to March 2020, including recruitment planned before the programme was announced.

How many were cut?you do the maths There are now a total of 131,596 officers, a 5% increase on March 2019

How many were cut before they committed to increasing police numbers by 20,000?

The current administration is not completely new and separate from the previous two.

Everyone except BoJo/Cummings voted for Police cuts.

They are still there.

All that has happened is reversing what the party in power previously did.

Is that a statement of fact?

This is not a "new deal". There is nothing "new" about it.

Well done to BoJo/Cummings doing something about the disaster that the party in government has created but zero points for proclaiming that this is new.

The title of this thread.

You can't exclude Johnson from that. He became an MP while still Mayor so has voted on every cut since 2015. Before that he was personally responsible for police cuts in London as Mayor.

Yes Police numbers have risen.

Your last chance:

Did the party in power cut Police numbers by a larger amount?

Are MPs who voted to do so in Cabinet now?

Will returning Police numbers to the previous level be doing doing something "new" or be going back to the "old"?

As for the cabinet that cut police numbers as the most were cut between 2009 and 2016 i would think very few if any of that cabinet are left.The point being the new PM ,HS and chancellor who make the call to cut were not in the cabinet when those decisions were made.Boris said he would raise police numbers in his election manifesto and is doing so.Each elected leader has different priorities which they put forward and people vote on them.Maybe this is why corbyn pushed may very close and got hammered by boris.

I've already said that Police numbers are increasing.

Why are they so low now?

You really aren't able to write "yes the party in power did cut Police numbers"?

The current Cabinet were MPs and voted for it and supported it. The party as a whole certainly did and has never acknowledged any issue.

Correct?

Is having this many Police officers actually something new from a party that has been in power for this long?

Many people said they would not vote labour as They (wrongly )believed they crashed the economy in 2008.

Despite it obviously being ran by a different leader and different policies etc in 2019.

Yet a lifelong tory takes no responsibility for huge cuts, despite being a vocal advocate of them,because he wasnt pm.

Odd.

I suppose we’ll be able to blame the tories for the horrible economic situation that we’re going to be in, in the same way as they unashamedly blamed Labour for the 2008 financial crash.

Do you know if they’ve fixed the roof seas shining since 2010?

Is the conservative the party is boom and bust?

How much money left will there be in the coffers when they vacate power?

Is Boris the leader of the Conservative party? Does everything that happened with the conservatives before he became leader become irrelevant? Does the same apply to Kier Starmer and the Labour Party??

well thats good then we have finally got there you agree ,there was no need for all the whataboutery.I made a simple statement that police numbers were rising and its taken about 100 posts for you to agree without whatabout this whatabout that and all from a man who usually jumps on people who deviate from the post.

As for the cabinet that cut police numbers as the most were cut between 2009 and 2016 i would think very few if any of that cabinet are left.The point being the new PM ,HS and chancellor who make the call to cut were not in the cabinet when those decisions were made.Boris said he would raise police numbers in his election manifesto and is doing so.Each elected leader has different priorities which they put forward and people vote on them.Maybe this is why corbyn pushed may very close and got hammered by boris.

I've already said that Police numbers are increasing.

Why are they so low now?

You really aren't able to write "yes the party in power did cut Police numbers"?

The current Cabinet were MPs and voted for it and supported it. The party as a whole certainly did and has never acknowledged any issue.

Correct?

Is having this many Police officers actually something new from a party that has been in power for this long?well thats good then we have finally got there you agree ,there was no need for all the whataboutery.I made a simple statement that police numbers were rising and its taken about 100 posts for you to agree without whatabout this whatabout that and all from a man who usually jumps on people who deviate from the post. "

You are really suffering in lockdown aren't you?

Remember this several posts ago?

"Last chance have police numbers risen since boris has become PM?

You aren't in a position to test me

Yes Police numbers have risen."

You need to go and have some quiet time and try and work out what's going on with your desperate need to be right as reality wraps itself around you

"Many people said they would not vote labour as They (wrongly )believed they crashed the economy in 2008.

Despite it obviously being ran by a different leader and different policies etc in 2019.

Yet a lifelong tory takes no responsibility for huge cuts, despite being a vocal advocate of them,because he wasnt pm.

Odd.Not only wasn't he PM he wasnt even an mp when the cuts started in 2009.

He was Mayor of London cutting the police numbers personally, not just voting to cut their budgets. try using fullfacts instead of just guessing. "

I guess that you should:

"Broadly speaking, during Boris Johnson’s time as Mayor (2008 to 2016), police officer numbers rose, then fell, then rose again, then started falling again. Using comparable figures for 31 March each year, there were more officers around the time Mr Johnson stopped being Mayor (around 32,100) than when he began (around 31,500).

But as we’ve mentioned before, starting the clock in 2008 isn’t necessarily the best measure of Mr Johnson’s tenure. Mr Johnson’s first actual budget as Mayor was in February 2009, covering the 2009/10 financial year. The previous budget – including funding for the police in London - was set by his predecessor, Ken Livingstone.

Not only that, it also takes time to recruit and train officers, so it can take time before the effects of a new administration are felt.

The time you choose to start counting from changes everything.

If you compare police numbers from a year or two into Mr Johnson’s tenure, to a year or two after he left, then the number of officers fell. The Labour Party told us this was essentially the way they calculated their figures which informed Ms Haigh’s claim."
