Default Prime Ministers Questions

Every Wed....PMQ takes place for half an hour...where people can basically grill the Prime Minister its always fun to watch...lots of laughter, finger pointing, and petty point scoring

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHQ5FbBHEW0

I havent got round to watching it yet...I'll do it after the gym...but I suspect its mostly going to be about the poor Head of the Ministry of Defence...who was a friend of the prime minister and has resigned amidst a private investigation into the fact one of his extremely close male friends seemed to know stuff about the MOD that people who dont work their shouldnt be privy to

The Prime Minister begins by telling the house of another Military Death, this time a Ghurkah.

A Minister asks if the Government has remembered the annerversary of an Unemployment March about thirty odd years ago...and does the Government realize the economical climate now is exactly the same as then.

The Government says that the numbers of workers in the public sectors decline is inevitable...so they are working on increasing the private sector.

A Minister thanks the Government for a joint venture with Canada on renewable energy in marine...what will the Universities do to help with this. The Government replied that they would be helping with the climate secretaries guidence

The Opposition Brings up The Defence Secretary, his unofficial advisor and dodgy funding...is is possible the Government is telling porkies about not knowing this was going on?

The Government replied that on hearing about this an investigation occured. The Government actually applauds the MOD head for recognising his faults and resigning...and points out that in politics that doesnt always happen does it...pointing the finger back at the opposition.

The Opposition tells the Government it should show more humility...he claims that there is a network of individuals funded in an illegal manner, and connected to the Government Cabinate itself. He claims the report produced doesnt tell us all this information...Can the Government state whether any other heads are engaged in this type of filth?

The Government lists a number of Labour Scandals in response to the request for humility.

"If you're going to jump on a bandwagon, make sure it's still moving" Screams the Prime minister at the opposition

The Opposition replies that the Government has a repetative behaviour of not asking tough questions about its members and then claiming no knowledge when scandles break.

He then reads a quote from the Prime Minister about "being the change" and asks how this can be reconciled with the past three months thats seen the spin doctor for the Government arrested, and the Head of the Ministry of Defence resign out of shame.

The Government replies "You're Just a bit late!" indicating the Defence Secretary has already gone. Its old news.

A minister asks considering the amount of instability in the financial market, isnt it great that the Government are still committed to reducing our debt. The Government says Yes. The Government says listening to the opposition would add 21B to the debt...which he called "Freak-o-nomics"

A minister talks about a how there has been collusion in the murder of a man in Ireland, and that they have their doubts as to whether the British Government can get to the truth, considering it might implicate those now in political office in Ulster.

The Government understands the skeptics, but the intent is there, and that the Government will find the truth and if needs be appologise

Cheltenham Council have built more council houses, the first for two decades...does the Government think this worthy of congratulations? The Government says absolutely...and dont worry, the greenbelt areas targetted by privates will be limited.

A Minister wishes to thank the House for its support in the ongoing investigation into the Hillsborough Disastor. The Government have promised to release all documents pertaining to the disastor hidden by Maggie...even if it implicates their party in a cover up and false pushing of the blame onto the populas. Will the Government bring those people responsible for the tragic day to justice after twenty two years? The Government implies a past enquiry probably dealt with the problem. so. in short. No.

A Minister thanks the Government for the instigation of a day to honour the Military who are wounded...apparently next week...and would the Government congratulate those schools who plan to celebrate it with fundraising events? Yes the Government will.

The Opposition says that unemployment and inflation is the worst its been since the last conservative Government. Does the Government think they are doing the correct thing? The Government quibbles over the figures, but blames the International Markets for the extra problems...but there would be no need to raise VAT if the last labour Government had not overspent.

The Opposition says that the plan is not working, and asks for numbers on flagship opporations designed to improve growth in small businesses...the Government stalls and faulters a bit in responce

The Opposition has the figures...apparently, only two businesses in sixteen months...and in that time sixteen thousand small businesses have gone bankrupt...

The Government points out he neglected to mention three hundred thousand NEW small Businesses in that time. Where is the oppositions plan? to add more then 200b to the debt by the end of the Government!

The Speak tells the house to STFU and listen.

The Government says its the Opposition got us into this mess in the first place.

A minister accuses Nottingham police of failing to help a woman mudered by her partner. Would The Government aggree that the police must all do best practise to help women in need.

A minister blames the Secretary of Education for the decline in College enrollment due to the UCAS for Colleges collapsing how will the Government put this right. The Government say the figures in some places are rising, and the new replacement insitution will have to do

A Minister fears that the Energy Companies are working together to stop competition and the lowering of rates. What is the Government going to do about this? The Government replied that it was turning the clock back to set up a pooling by which the new competition can grow. It is pointed out the abolition of this pooling was done by the Sec for Energy...now The Opposition himself

Will the Government support Some biofuel thingy. Maybe, the Funding is still available.

A Minister says the Government should learn not to meddle around with insitutions so much, like the National Health Service. The Government says...yes, if they can cut costs for central or local governments.

A minister says that if the Government truely believe that all those who carry knives should be gaoled...then how come they dont dare do this for the forty percent that are below the age of consent? Because its about prosecuting the adults.

A Minister reccomends the Prime Minister call for a Referendum on the British being involved in the European Union. The Government says No...but that the Conservatives do want to lay restraints on Europe, particularly being forced to give up powers, or be involved in big money transactions.

A Minister wishes the Government would reform the Honours list to better reflect the Nations support of the war dead. The Government says that meetings will be held to review the possibility

The European Union are trying to take driving liscences away from diabetics a worried minister complains, who was under the impression it was the department of transports descretion...can the Government please clarify. The Government will investigate, because the Department of Transport is also seeking clarification from Europe.

The BAA is selling Edinburgh Airport, will the Government recognise how important these airports are for Scotland and do something about listening to the airports that want to devolve passenger duty.

One idiot suggests that to get the best from schools we should force them to Federate...something the last labour Government tried and screwed up! The Government says there is a possibility for it.

Greater Manchester have a problem with their emergency services...the Government says they should increase spending to help.

A Minister wishes the Prime Minister to come to huddersfield and open something paid for by a new Conservative initiative, so up yours Opposition.

A minister says the Governments Knife initiative is not good enough and should cover children also

Can the Government support the Speach Therapists campaign for language. Yes The Government will.

...and we're back to the Ministry of Defence AGAIN. A minister would like a list of all the people, on the international circuit who were deceived. The Government tells the Minister to read the report.

The Government assures ministers that there must be safeguards about fiscal union with Europe.

Finally a Minister asks the Government to make all think tanks display who they are funded by so we can better see their bias.

Yes...that includes those funders of the Labour Opposition also

So...the ministers got together and debated having a Referendum on the European Union. The Government told the Conservatives that they HAD to vote against. Several Aides resigned in protest, and when the vote took place in the House of Commons at the end of the debate EIGHTY ONE Conservatives ignored the party line and votes for. Now they lost...and they were always going to looose, because all the opposition, and the other coillition party were always going to vote against giving the public their say.

But what is interesting...is that the Conservatives ignored the prime minister to give him the worst backlash ANY Conservative Prime Minister has had over Socialism and a Federalized Europe...that includes Maggie!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O8iq...&feature=feedu

We begin with some announcement from the Treasury....and there is a lot of jeering as the Prime Minister stands to tell the House he is off to Europe to discuss the crisis later in the day.

A Minister asks the Government to appologise for some really off the cuff remarks about the Hillsborough disastor. The Government things that the population should be applauding them for bothering to open up the old files and place them in the public domain.

A Minister points out that the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel has decided she want to revamp some of the European Treaties. He reads out a statement from a previous Deputy Prime Minister which is very anti europe in deed, and asks if the Government aggree with the statment, and presumably the way to lobby the Germans on the reform.

The Government replied that it didnt know when the treaties would come in to existance or what they would entail, but without aggreeing to the quote, did say it would be a chance to explore Soverignty issues.

There was much rejoycing as the Opposition took the stand

The Opposition asked the Government if it aggreed that as well as the economic crisis financially that involves emphasis on austerity, whether at the European Summit he would push an agenda for economic growth in Europe also.

Basically...No. They need to focus on the financial, yes growth needs to happen and be discussed, but at other summits.

The Opposition says its all very well putting in to place long term measures for growth in europe...but that they need an immediate growth spurt. He claims that the prime minister hasnt really been busy at all with europe...but busy rather with those in his conservative party who decided to rebel against him at the Referendum vote.

The Opposition says that the Government has promised to repatriate powers from Europe. He wants to know which ones, and when.

The Government rolls its eyes and claims that it has already bought a power back. Thats the exclusion from England, directly, as a source of bailout money for other countries (the indirect monies from England continue) he notes with a wink that it was the Opposition in Government that gave that power to Europe in the first place.

The Opposition points out that the Deputy Prime Minister (head of the liberal democrat side of the coillition) said a day after that the Government had no intention of reigning in the powers of Europe...So which is it?

The Government reads a Quote from the Labour Party saying that Europe doesnt have enough power. The Government claim the Opposition is thus being hypocritical

The Opposition says its no wonder the Conservatives revolted over the referendum when the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister do not share the same view on Europe. Which one speaks for the Government.

The Government repeats that it has regained some soverignty but will not give a yes or no response to which leaders ideal are to be acted upon. Instead he reads out a statement where the Opposition was asked if he wanted to join the Euro Currency and the Opposition had replied "it depends how long im prime minister for"

The Opposition ignores him and says at meetings to do with treaties what specifically will be the Governments position when everyone in the cabinate is saying completely different things

The Government replied it was a good job that the Opposition wasnt in power, or else the meeting tonight would have been about a discussion for a financial bail out for the British!

The Opposition accused the Government of leading on its conservative members with promises of more soverignty from Europe, when the coillition aggreements wont let those promises happen with the liberal democrats.

The Government say Labour is all about joining the Euro and about spending more money in a time of austerity.

Speaker calls for order.

A minister wants to know if that growth fund has helpped anymore businesses since the two that were mentioned last week

The Government replied that 44 of the 50 bids last week were successful

Rugby are building houses in the towncenter to try and help the highstreet, shouldnt the Government give its endorsement to such policies asks the minister for Rugby

Sort of. The Government would like more houses, but also for them to be managed locally

A Minister claims one of her constitutents was murdered, and would the Government please send its condolences and ask the general public to help with enquiries.

Yes

A druggy driver killed a woman and got only eight months but he was released after four. Would the Government meet with the victims family who are proposing a new package for the judiciary. The Government is of the opinion that druggy drivers should be treated like drink drivers, and yes they will meet with the relatives and look at their suggestions for the judiciary.

A minister calls for a review after the Bank of England bollocked a local bank for "Quantative Easing" which apparently rips off the tax payer. The Government said that crime is crime and should be investigated and prosecuted if required.

A Minister points out that the austerity measures have hit the Citizens Advice, and although there is funding for another year..will the government make provision for it following that. The Government doesnt know at present.

Sheffield University celebrates ten years. Will the Government sends its regards and highlight the importance of manufacturing....The speaker cuts him off feeling his examples are drifting on, and on, and on, and on....

The Government is doing its best in that area.

Another question about funding for disadvantaged school children is asked. The Government claims to be working on that also.

A downing stree report was leaked claiming that survays show women are more negative about the government then men. Why does the Government think that could be...and it was asked by a female minister

The Government thinks its because of the spending cuts which are effecting the household budgits. The Government says it is trying to help women with supported nursaries and the likes

Planning permission has been given for an industrial incinerator for waste (there is also one planned for Knaresborough....) the population responded to the enquriy and said they do not want it...and yet they come. The minister says that there is small print allowing for a Government intervention and would the Government show the people that unlike the opposition ( ) the Conservatives care about local values and opinions and do something to help them.

The Government says its responsible for upgrading the planning permission system...but that difficult decisions must be made. It falls short of promising support in this matter.

A Minister says that the Government claimed it would cut financial aid to any african country who wouldnt support gay rights. Why wont the Government threaten to cut aid for Religious persecution from the same countries against Christians??

He asks. Do Hedgehogs have more rights then Christians

The Government says that all things are taken into consideration where giving financial aid....

Eastborne is having major success with apprentiships, shouldnt the government endorse this approach to work. Yes...and the Government doubled the funding for apprentaships

The Government respond to a quirey about an announcement due from the Judiciary over fixed determined sentances. The Government said it was a travisty that people get out of prison early. Time to stop that.

How can the Government help females to start there own business...asks another bloody female minister The Government states processes, although these are for anyone wanting to start a business...not just a female

...We're back to Hillsborough again. A minister asks the Government to call upon the police to be more transparent regarding the disastor. The Government says it doesnt know about the police papers, and so will look into it.

A Minister asks the Government to show some gratitude for Forster Care. The Government grant the request.

A minister points out a cross party report on youth gangs was promised and hasnt shown up. When will it be available for viewing. "When we are ready for the report, we will make it" Repiled the Government angrily

A Minister asks for the Government to recall how it is helping people with flexible working plans. The Government blahs on the issue of flexible working plans.

The Austerity cuts have hit westminster police and the PCSO rate has dropped by two thirds. A Minister doesnt know how the Government reconcille this with the knowledge that the public want a more visiable police force.

The Government has full confidence in the Mayor of London to manage to make difficult decisons regarding cuts and still keep a perfectly good police force in the capital.

Is the Government enthusiastic over the localism bill...and does the government agrree there must be local accountability with the freedom given.

Yes

A Minister accuses the Primeminister of a Utern over Hospital Closures, claiming that he was against them whilst as Opposition and doesnt care now in power.

The Government told the minister in question that the Government were expanding HIS hospital...so he can hardly talk can he

A Minister congratualates the Prime Minister on the invention of "Free Schools" which are basically run by a conglomerate of parents...

A Minister accuses the Government of doing political deals over the future of the NHS whilst not disclosing these in debates about the Future in the House. The Government gives examples on how the NHS has been improved...but ignores the question

A Minister calls for reform of the SEN in Schools involving rehabilitation over punishment ...Yes...but Justice is more important at present

Speaker closes Questions for today.

I am just going to give a round up, rather then mention everysingle thing...you can check the videos out for yourselves

We begin with Pension reform, due to the rising life expectancy age. The Government want to handle this so its fair on those who are trying to retire but cant afford it, and those who are paying tax contributions to it.

The Government is angry with the opposition for supporting strikes on this issue planned for later this year.

The Opposition responded by asking the Government what went wrong with their forcasted growth of 0.8% which only ended up being 0.5% The Government replied that any improvement should be welcomed.

The Opposition claims the Government is shifting blame, if its not the previous labour Government, its the World Fianncial system, if its not that its Europe...

FFS...now they are asking about the bloody stupid pot of cash for small businesses AGAIN, for the third week running, the Opposition want to know how many businesses have received

"Order, Mr Cambell, calm yourself, the house is getting far too excited...its only six mins past, let me say, both the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition MUST be heard, its called Democrasy and Freedom of Speech" shrieks the Speaker

The Opposition talks about the directors of large firms receiving outrageously large pays and bonus money. The Government is talking about bank levy. The constant diatribe is, we aint perfect, but we are better then you lot, or we are doing our best with the mess that your party left for us.

Metal Theaft is next on the agenda....there are looters who are stripping churches, rail network...and war memorials of their alloys to sell for pittance as scrap.

The Government will probably put legislation against this kind of theaft.

Utilities are rising in Ulster...will the Government reverse the fuel allowance for the elderly. The Government are trying to get the utility companies themselves to work this out.

The Government is bollocked about cutting the Chief Coroners position in the armed forces for money saving purposes.

Alister Darling...the idiot Labour Treasurer, who cares more about the Union in Europe then his own country lecturers the prime minister on how to go about the G20 Summit.

Population and immigration is next...Workers should not get citizenship automatically if they are foreign...the Government sort of aggrees. The Government has stopped the Colleges bringing in the Students to study who then granduate and never go back from whence they came.

A minority minister from Scotland asks the prime minister if he thinks that the renewable energy of Scot power, is threatened by the Nationalists plans for a Referendum to distroy the British Union.

To my knowledge this is the first time the David Cameron has had the opportunity to speak directly, if he wishes about what the Scots are trying to do. Which...in short, is to gain Independance.

Absolutely. The Government says that business links are stalling between England and Scotland until this Referendum says yes or no...and if it says No to the Union, dont expect England to reccomend cross Boarder business or financial growth

A minister wants the law tightened on dog attacks, specifically for post men The Government wants to take a personal interest in this.

"order, the House will calm down, I want to hear David Lamby" Screatches the Squeaker

National Adoption week is upon us...apparently

"Order! some people are going to burst they are getting so exciting, such a shame as its a bit of a problem for them.." decliared Mr Bercow. What Drival from the representative of HM The Queen

The Farming Industry needs help....The Government looks confused...having forgotten that we have our own food supply with all its import trades...

We end this week with wise words from The Rt Hon Sir Peter Tapsell, who, now being the longest running Minister in the present Parliament is known as "The Father of The House" He belongs in the Lords...of course...but may well die an MP...born in 1930...he's been in Parliament since 1959 and continuously since 1966!

The Father of the House is completely normal as an MP...except, he gets to Preside over the Ellection of the Speaker. The Speaker of the House is the Chair Person, he sits on the Green Throne between the Parties...he signifies the Monarch...for if she were present...that is where she would sit..however...she is only ever present in The House of Lords...where the Throne is Golden...and the Speaker there doesnt ever get to sit on it

Mr Tapsell is the Sixtieth Father of The House of Commons...in The House of Lords, they are only on their Thirteenth Father!

Today the main fighting is over the recent storm that the minister in charge of boarder control ran a poilet scheme to relax passport regulations, and its accidently let in more then it should. There is a war now between the Woman in charge, and the head of the boarder control who has resigned, blaming the Minister.

Its been a disastor

The Prime Minister said that he backed the poilet scheme. However, the prime minister says that the boarder control chief extended these measures, and he dissagrees with that and is glad that the boarder agency man is gone.

I fear they are making the boarder chief a scapegoat to save the Minister, the Home Secretary!

For the first time...I actually aggree with the Labour Party that the immigration under this poilet scheme has changed, and that the Home Secretary oughta be chucked out.

Lots of military deaths this week

Today Commons talk goes around The Strikes planned next week, in the Educational System...The Government are against, the Opposition are for.

Youth Unemployment is the second Agenda posed by the Opposition....it gets REALLY nasty!

We go back to the Strikes...and the Prime Minister accuses the leader of the opposition of supporting the strikes due to where his funds come from...the Trade Unions who are organizing such strikes...apparently 86% of his funds... and all the Torries go "Ahaaaaaaaa" "Under the last labour Government it was about 56, so this is the ONLY thing he has improved since the time of Gordon Brown"

Some woman Minister bollox the Prime Minister about women in...or out of...work. The Prime Minister tells her where to go

The Government have given the Councils of England the ability to freeze council tax...but Brighton and Hove Council are refusing to do that and plan to raise the level of Tax. When this is put before the Government, the Prime Minister claims it is the decision of each individual council. Even his own party members cry "shame!"

The Government want to introduce Judicial Laws to punish the act of "Stalking" They also attest that the Localism Act should give locals more say in the new housing developments being planned. Their is a shortage...but also a nasty tendancy for some not to want new estates appearing all over the place.

A Minister talks about how lessons have not been learned from the Northern Rock Building Society issue, and how the bank is now being sold off.

Enterprise Zones are next to be discussed

A Pension Stakeholder collapsed last week, and some people have just lost their life savings. a Minister appeals for an urgent Enquiry to prevent other pension funds tanking. The Government replied that there was a Westminster Hall Debate on the subject, but he is open to offers of further investigation

A Minister who covers land which is used by two military bases is really unhappy at the Ministry of Defence cuts to the Police safeguarding these bases. These Bases store Nukes.

Who Knew that the Arab Spring would threaten to distroy Thomas Cook Holiday firm. Its teetering on the brink of obivion as noone wants to go on holiday to these newly liberated countries anymore

National Health Service Figures show Cancer Deaths declining. A minister wants an appology for the Conservative claim that the NHS was incapable and should be privatized. The Government refuse.

The War Memorial dessicration is dispikable...and ministers want punishments and laws written to protect them.

They end with a cheer for Children in Need...a National yearly campaign for Charity

Wales wants more money "advanced capital allowances" The Government were positive on this

Portland Search and Rescue helicopter is being axed. Minister wants a meeting with the Prime Minister on this point. Whilst aggreeing to a meeting the Government were negative on this point.

The PM and Opposition verbal spar about the Strikes due to the Pension reform

Womens rights in Afghanistan comes on the agenda now that schools in Afghanistan are working again.

The ministers are questioning why the Government are making changes to tax credits. The answer lies in the governments insistance that people be put to work, not further helpped in thier poverty.

Boarder control has been hit by the strikes...and the Government have had to cover the gaps.

There was an attack on the British Embassy in Iran. You should know that when such an attack happened against the United States Embassy, the United States shut down diplomatic relationship with Iran altogether....I dont believe they have spoken in about thirty years now

One Minister asks can the Government please reaffirm that it plans to safegaurd the future of all British Territories The Government said. Yes.

The First Question opens with WTF to do with the Fourth Reich The German Chancellor is power hungry again. To Explain the backdrop of that wit, The German Chancellor Angela Mirkel, and the French President Nicolas Sarkozy, wish to completely change the European System.

At present there is whats known as The Euro Zone, which is a portion of Europe that gave up their curencies to launch the first international Currency on the planet. These Countries are also a large portion of The European Union, which is an evergrowing international body which includes member states from the geographical Europe, some are use the Currency, some do not.

This International body is based in brussels, and produces treaties. The problem is its begining to produce treaties that benefit the most financially well off, and rob the smaller states of their soverignty by imposing a new layer of international law horribly akin to The United Nations, but on a more localized level.

As Germany is the biggest financial centre in Europe following its regeneration after the second world war, it is the Germans who drive the Euro. The problem is that the Euro was badly thought out, different member states use different methods to try and make the Euro advantageous to their national interest, meanwhile, some other soverignty is buggered by that very move, combine that with a prolific decade that implied credit spending was reasonably assured, and pop in the wall street wobble, and you have a bloody nightmare.

One by one, the member states are finding it difficult to pay back what they have bought on credit, this leads to them being downgraded financially speaking and basically blacklists them from the financial transactions they need to keep their growth going. This began with Greece and Eire and Portugal, and each time the Union got together and raised money to help them. But they were relatively small states. When Spain and Italy began to flag there was a problem, because firstly the Union was asking those countries that were part of it, but NOT part of the Euro Currency to help with the country sized bail-outs, and secondly, no amount of bail outs will work with big countries.

The German Chancellor believes that if Italy can wobble, Germany can wobble also...and the only way she can insure this doesnt happen, is if she can have complete control over the financial system, and apply the same financial system over the entire Euro Zone...this doesnt just mean that foreign countries use the Euro...it means their entire financial systems will be governed wholistically.

Only one other place in the entire world runs on this system, that being The United States of America. A single Federal Reserve for not just one nation, but effectively 50 nations. The result is, it leaves the State Governments powerless, and hands authority to one single institution. This works, to an extent, in the United States because it was designed from impetus, and areas of land didnt exist before collecting themselves temporarily with the hope of specifically being invited into the Union. In other words, they had no financial systems, or Soverignty to give up.

But in Europe, Countries are much older and have fought each other throughout the ages, they are not obedient to each other, and their own national interest has bought them to war...in a way that totally eclipses the American Civil war (the very use of the term Civil there, implies ONE Nation...it does NOT imply a group of Nations in Union)

Does Europe, which in the last 150 years, has seen a decade of fighting and two generations lost, due to German Imperialism, want to see a Federalized Union, which has a Two tear system, supporting the Euro on the one hand, and making the others in the Union who refuse to use the Euro, second class citizens who have to pay for the single currencies upkeep, but are not permitted a view with authority on it...and then put that all under the control of a German Chancellor?

The answer is NO. The problem with England is due to the fact it doesnt use the currency, its considered an outsider and not even allowed to attend half the meetings where those who use the currency sort stuff out...and yet England is expected to abide by whatever decisions are made in those meetings which usually mean paying a lot of money. The Public do not want it, but the Government dare not let a referendum take place because they are a coilition of two parties, one against Europe, and one largely split between wanting union and not wanting Union...so to receive a clear negative would distroy the Coilition.

So...What do we do.



Well due to the coilition, The Prime Minister cant say which powers he wants to repatriate from Europe, leading some to believe he hasnt got the guts to fight for our dwindling soveringty...in answer to the prodding by the Labour Opposition, Cameron does come up with the following gem though

" He talks about being isolated, let me just say where we would be if we adopted Labour policies. If we adopted your spending and defecit policies, and if we were in The Euro, what we would find is that I wouldnt be going to Brussels to fight for Britain, I'd be going to Brussels to get a bail out. Under the proposals being but forward, Labour would put Britain in such a bad position that the Tax changes wouldnt be writen by the Shadow Chancellor, they'd be written by THE GERMAN CHANCELLOR!"
