I’m left almost speechless by Labour’s brazen lies

Today, I have to apologise. I had planned to watch Ed Miliband’s Labour Party conference speech so that you don’t have to. But after witnessing the torrent of lies spouted by the preening, self-absorbed, sociopathic liar Ed Balls, I couldn’t even bring myself to face almost an hour of Miliband Junior’s mendacity.

Balls has clearly understood nothing and learnt nothing from 13 years of Labour misrule during which he was at the centre of Brown’s catastrophic squandering of taxpayers’ money and creation of a new overpaid, over-pensioned, incompetent, arrogant, self-serving bureaucratic elite (a generation of Sir David Nicholsons) that has wrecked most of our public services. It was far beyond parody when Balls said a Labour government would focus like a laser on every pound of public spending and ensure the new HS2, if built, would be done on time and on budget.

Here’s what happened last time Labour (Balls and Brown) tried to run a few public-sector projects (click to see more clearly)

As for Miliband. I couldn’t bear to watch his speech. But a few of the things he promised were similarly so far beyond parody that you almost had to admire his gall in daring to even say them:

1. He pledged to cap energy costs. But it was his Climate Change Act, when he was Energy Secretary, which has been the main cause for increasing energy costs, pushing up household bills and destroying British industry. The Climate Change Act made it the duty of the Secretary of State to ensure that the net UK carbon account for all six Kyoto greenhouse gases for the year 2050 is at least 80% lower than the 1990 baseline.

2. Remember Gordon Brown’s pledge “British jobs for British workers”? This was, of course, illegal under EU rules. But we got almost the same promise from Miliband – every company employing someone from outside the EU would have to take on a British trainee. Sorry Ed, but your beloved EU’s rules make this just as illegal as Brown’s empty promise.

3. He blamed the Tories for ruining the NHS. But he seemed to forget that Labour increased NHS spending from £45bn to over £105bn while wasting billions on almost doubling the number of managers from 25,000 to 45,000 while reducing the number of hospital beds from 210,000 to 140,000. So we went from over 8 beds per manager to less than 4 beds per manager. Labour also gave doctors wonderful (for the doctors) new contracts that paid them more for doing less work and Labour encouraged maybe 5 million, maybe 7 million, people to move to Britain to rub the middle-classes’ noses in multiculturalism. Having to look after these millions of mostly uneducated, unskilled and unproductive new arrivals has put devastating pressure on our hospitals, schools, housing, policing and benefits system.

4. Miliband promised better pensions. But it’s precisely because of the costs of more people coming to Britain under 13 years of New Labour than came in the last two thousand years, that we can’t afford to give British pensioners a decent pension.

I could go on, but I’m losing the will to live. And worst of all – lying, ignorant, arrogant, useless, incompetent garbage Miliband and Balls look like winning the next election. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic.

    Must agree. I listened to most of it but gave up. It was depressing. I wouldn’t invest in energy now, and I’m sure the companies involved are already winding down investment plans. We are more likely to have blackouts as a result. Labour come across as against energy, not just the energy companies. What happens if the price of oil goes through the roof during the price freeze? My bet is that Miliband will use taxpayer money for subsidy. You really couldn’t make this up.

    With the ‘living wage’ (not mentioned I don’t think), we have the modern equivalent of a prices and incomes policy. (And this is probably why it wasn’t mentioned – it would become all too clear). These policies were a disaster last time and they will be a disaster this time.

    Actors are always full of “s” when they decide to get into politics… Obviously with the exception of “the Gipper”.

    So anyway, for those addicted to TV it is far more entertaining to watch the Labour leader “Mr. ED” in his previous career.

    That lot should be tarred and feathered (at the very least, some hanged for treason) but they’re preparing for government. The bovine stupidity of the electorate never ceases to amaze me.

    I have noticed that Balls bears an uncanny resemblance to fatty Prescott. Is he Prescott’s son by chance? Seems to have the same IQ and management skills (sic!).

  • I’d should check with you here. Which is not something I often do! I take pleasure in reading a submit that may make individuals think. Also, thanks for permitting me to remark!

  • lindy shaw

    To put it mildly, I cannot believe the real stupidity of the electorate. To elect Balls and Milly will really see more problems than we have EVER seen in this country.Yet again down to the poor old middle classes to support the whole lot.
