Awful Osborne

First published in Letters

THIS year’s autumn statement is classic Osborne, full of the usual denials and misinformation that has come to characterise this awful Chancellor. The Institute of Fiscal Studies has run a coach and horses through Osborne’s autumn statement pointing out that there is a whopping £12 billion black hole in his sums, which will mean further tax rises or more cuts in essential services. They also point out that due to wages falling so far behind the cost of living, that for every year Cameron has been in number 10 we are £1.600 worse off.

This should surprise no one as this minority government made it clear that the damage inflicted on our country by incompetent and greedy bankers would be paid for by the weakest, while Cameron doles out generous tax breaks to the very people who caused the crash. At this years London Mayor’s banquet, while sat on a gold throne Cameron declared austerity for forever, with a goal to shrink the state to the same size as it was in 1948, a truly deplorable ambition.

It is interesting that in a time of self-imposed austerity Chancellor Osborne can find £9 million pounds of taxpayers money to refurbish number 11 Downing street, clearly we are not all in this together.

i would imagine Nigel that people like yourself enjoy a large state sector and you and your labour cronies seem to line their own pockets by it.

When John Major left office he left the country in the best financial state that any hand over has been.

Our Gordy the worst .

People who vote conservative or UKIP think the individual knows how best to spent the money they earn people who vote for the sad sack labour think the government know how best to spend their money. (but in reality most that vote labour either work in the bloated public sector or sit at home claiming to be too depressed or disabled etc etc to work).

Isn't it a little naughty of "Nig" to right his letter to the SWA, get it published and then join the comments debate on what he has written?
He would be far better off concentrating on the massive failings and unlawful actions that are being investigated by the police and the Welsh Audit Office in his own authority that are costing local taxpayers £illions
