Nice to see Jezza making an appearance at Glastonbury today and preaching his peace and love schtick to a load of stoned kids.

www.bbc.co.uk...

It brings a lovely vomit inducing memory of Tony Bliar with his Oasis buddies and keepie uppies in the park.

What a lovely boost to his ego it must have been strolling on stage to a crowd he'd bribed during the election with the promise of free Uni places and cleared debts. Good old Jezza and his magic money tree that has its roots in the wallets of the workers and drops its swollen fruit to the shirkers.

Nothing is free in this life, you have to pay in some way at some time unless you live in Jezza's socialist fantasy world.

How does he plan to pay for his grand ideas. Simple. Tax. But the lefties love him, the great hope.

As well as his general plans to tax the living hell out of anyone he thinks can afford it there was also a plan about land value tax. In summary rather than council tax you pay a % of the value of the land your property is built on. Seems fair doesn't it? Not.

The council tax system in the U.K. is a joke and is based on values in 1991! It is such a disgrace that no government dares to address it. The value bands have never been reviewed (Wales did try) and the property boom never taken into account. The highest bracket is > £320k!

www.gov.uk...-tax-bands-in-england-based-on-1-april-1991-values

Given the average house price in the U.K. Is £220k and closer to £350k in London - I would humbly suggest this is worth looking at as it's a little outdated.

landregistry.data.gov.uk...

Obviously this would not be particularly popular as in some areas house price growth has outstripped others by phenomenal amounts. Jezza clearly doesn't want to upset his homeland in London where he is adored for wanting to give away free stuff. This is where his land value tax is beautifully sneaky. You see land in London is a bit pricey so if you're lucky enough to own a nice semi with a garden you're a bit screwed. However if you happen to live in a block of flats (and this isn't a dig at Grenfell) then the land value is split between all the tenants. Thus Jezza keeps his voters happy - if they had to pay a percentage of their property market value they'd revolt.

As I've said before the man is a charlatan leading the youth of this country to their ruin. He cannot pay for what he wants to give away - so you're average worker will be pillaged for it.

Thanks Jezza - you'll ruin this place in every way imaginable.

BTW who the hell takes an I love Jeremy Corbyn flag to Glastonbury. Hope they get stuck in a portaloo and rolled down a hill.

And that concludes my first new thread after several years of loitering- it was being forced to watch The Last Leg that tipped me over.

Awwww, you sad that the greedy, selfish, poor & disabled hating Tory government now has competition because of one man, who by himself, picked up his party that tried to stab him in the back twice and woke the beast that is the young voter?


Sad that old people near death won't be deciding the future of these people woken?


Cry me a river.







PS I didn't vote for Corbyn.
But I love your salty tears.

Just one example shows up the superficiality of the people who scoff at the idea that taxes should go up.

In 2014, Facebook turned a $4.46bn profit.

It paid £4,327 in UK taxes. No, that's not a typo.

The money is out there to improve our society, it's just not being collected - because the Tories believe that efficient taxation discourages business.

Did we live in some socialist fantasy world when we had free education in the UK? No but it gave poor kids a half decent chance. But now its better for kids who grow up with nothing being told they have to get 30000 grand in debt to better their position. There's worse things for a country to spend its money on than educating and keeping its citizens healthy.

Corbyn at least has the guts to face the people ( both young and old )

Unlike Teresa May who hides from the general public and only addresses Tory Party Members.

In some respects there is nothing I would like more than to wake up and for Jezza to be PM tomorrow. All those broken dreams and promises all those snowflake tears. Talk about crying a river.

But please do continue.

I'm nearly 50 and joined the Labour Party because of this guy

Jeremy Corbyn, he's the one for me
JC, leader of the Labour party
I had no choice but to vote this man
As I believe he can save us in this troubled land
A change is needed from the status quo
As the Tories n Blairites are ruthless n above law
Without this change it all stays the same
No money for the poor, old, ill or the lame
Now all get behind him has he needs you!
Because the right side of Labour are actually blue
Now's the chance to really come clean
Now's the time stop the war machine
A real chance to start looking after our own
A great opportunity to stop the drone
They say he's unelectable, how wrong can they be?
He's anti fracking n pro renewable energy
He's the most electable man I've ever seen in my life
And I'm right behind him...but without the knife
The others have shown their true colours n all support war
Well, I'm with Jeremy on this and want it no more!
Jeremy Corbyn, he's the one for me
JC, leader of the Labour party
(Try it in Rap...Its cool and works


Can you please explain your problem here because I just don't see why you would be upset by him lol, other than brainwashing...dundundah!!!...Have you been reading them naughty rags? like the Daily Faily and the S*** by any chance?

Not to mention the previous 13? years of labour government who famously quoted

by Liam Byrne to the new Treasury Secretary >>>>


Laws told reporters: "When I arrived at my desk on the very first day as chief secretary, I found a letter from the previous chief secretary to give me some advice, I assumed, on how I conduct myself over the months ahead.

"Unfortunately, when I opened it, it was a one-sentence letter which simply said: 'Dear chief secretary, I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left,' which was honest but slightly less helpful advice than I had been expecting."


www.theguardian.com...



I dont suppose any of those new young enthused voters can recall any of that ....

Without the experience they will swallow ANYTHING....

Fresh out of uni or still in they havent a clue of how to budget!! just stick it on

the magic card.

Are you surprised there was no money left ?

The then Labour Government had to bail out The Banks who caused the Financial Crash. The cost was £850 billion.

Yes that's Billion.

He seems to have harboured a hatred of the country for a long time.
My personal feeling is that he's going to want us back under the EU again. Then it won't really matter who sits in parliament.
Also, Diane Abbott....

But that's just me. I don't like the Tories either.

He has the TIME after all he is not running the country .... or representing the will

of the people in extricating the UK out of the EU.

Which was a bipartisan decision, not a Labour decision...

Abit like the wars we were funding at the time.



Although what Blairite Labour has to do with Jeremy Corbyn's visions for Britain I'll never know...

It's like his detractors will say anything and everything to make him look bad.
After two years of that and then the surprise election results you'd think they'd give up that schtick by now.

All Governments borrow. For example, in cash terms, the Tory-led Governments from 2010 to date (including the Coalition and May's minority government) have borrowed more than every Labour government in history put together.

The thing is, the economy doesn't work like a household budget, where you have to balance income and outgoing in order to stay afloat. For example, if it did, you and you family would be taking out lines of credit that wouldn't be repayable until centuries after you have all died.

I'm just so conflicted with Jezza.

In a lot of ways, he is old labour.
Chances for all and an equal footing for everyone to start off on.

Trouble is, he has bought into that international socialist tripe that elevates the other to the same level as those who graft and pay their taxes for his wages. He always sees the other bloke's point of vie before that of his own.

He should have let the first bank go under.... The others would have soon cut

costs and become 'lean mean machines' and the men at the top like *Fred the

shred* would have had to forfeit their over generous bonuses payments

and positions.
