Budget Open Thread


Right, you lot

Let's have some ideas of what you would like to see implemented. Paul Waugh suggests scapping the free handouts to new mums to buy LCD tellies with, saving us over three quarters of a billion, I recommend scrapping social care for kids and putting them into excellent boarding schools.

I'll add them to this thread as they come in. Get slicing and let's give our kids a chance to grow up debt free for a change.

UPDATE; Do check out Captain Ranty's ideas

Scrap free travel for pensioners and junkies.

Stop giving dolescum free/cheap access to the local swimming pool etc.

Give food vouchers out instead of cash.

Should be a huge tax on people who use hospitals' casualty departments owing to them having fallen off their high heels.

Even bigger tax if they're blokes.

I have a few suggestions here:

That's already been taken care of:

Compulsory Workfare. 50 hours a week at £3 per hour moving rocks from A to B and back again. End of unemployment.

And the added benefit that all those scroungers will have to declare the tax on their real jobs.

Punisher said...

I recommend that all cunt-faced right-wing bloggers are painfully euthanised ASAP. Put the fuckers out of our misery I say!

Punisher said...

@ Disenfranchised of Buckingham

Workfare is working for your benefits not for sub-minimum wage hourly rates! Also European employment law would prevent anyone - even hardened criminals - from being forced into working for 50 hour a week!

Why are all right-wingers so congenitally stupid? Could most of them be products of incestuous couplings between blood relatives?

Psychometrically test them and cull all those with an IQ of less than 90 I say!

That's OH's readership eliminated at a stroke!

Punisher, if your IQ was five points lower, you would have to be watered daily

@RantinRab

The government that does that will be the government that never ever gets elected again. Part of Labour's scorched earth policy? Make everything free so that anyone who tries to introduce costs fails at the polls.

I advocate reducing the amount of income tax to the Government and having a sales tax county wide with the balance plus a little more to cover council tax and stopping council tax.

I would keep the government for overseas affairs, embassies and the army, and have County Councils reinstated and running everything in their counties. The local councillors will then want to get rid of everything as it would be too much like hard work, so they would invite local businesses to take over nearly everything.

People who save more, play less tax as the tax is on buying. But the country benefits as the banks will be awash with money and will be more than willing to lend to businesses. Especially as private citizens won't want loans as they won't want to buy so much.

OK, I am sure there are flaws in this, but it is a start.

Disenfranchised of Buckingham said...

Punisher, you just don't get it.

The whole point of workfare is to punish the lazy gob shites. They are a bunch of hardened criminals helping themselves to my money every week.

There's no difference between the state stealing my money on your behalf and you doing it yourself. Either way I have to pay up or suffer.

And of course it has to be long hours for bugger all, and stuff the EU. You thieving scum have got to decide that a real job is better than stealing my money. You mustn't have enough spare time for a cash in hand job on the side.

And because I don't trust the unemployed scum in this country the £3 per hour must be paid in vouchers not cash.

You don't have a clue what right wing means. Scum like you make me realize Hitler had a point.

Axe UKPLC, then let the people decide what services they want and how they will fund them.

Socialism will thrive in some cities and die a death in others.

It isn't about survival of the fittest, it's about survival of those who make themselves usefull to others (both with their knowledge and or skills.)

The Celts had a better system than the Romans, pitty it's the Romans that had the better military.

Leave the EU.

I think you'll find most Scousers, West Lothians and residents of Whitechapel are actually left wing.

cornyborny said...

"Why are all right-wingers so congenitally stupid? Could most of them be products of incestuous couplings between blood relatives?"

That's got to count as hate speech. Lumping millions of people together and making wild, insulting assumptions about them? Tsk.

And how quickly you take it down to the gutter. What's wrong? Are you so unsure of your argument that you have to smear, insult and attempt to shut down the debate?

"Psychometrically test them and cull all those with an IQ of less than 90 I say!"

That's the second post in which you advocate the murder of people who disagree with you. That'll be that caring, compassionate liberal attitude, then.

Stop taxing anybody.
Stop taxing anything.
Simple.

Broxted said...

Sterilise all single mums who have no educational qualifications. Make all economic immigrants pay 40% tax or go home. Institute a tattoo tax, say £50 at the point of delivery for every new tattoo. This would make shopping centres much nicer places to visit.
Leave the EU. Tell Scotland to fuck off along with Northern Ireland and Wales. Lower income tax to 10% for homosexuals as they don't burden other taxpayers with the cost of children to deliver, educate and family allowance and family tax credits. It would also encourage more closet gays to come out.

I'd like to see Gordon Brown executed for treason please. Cost negligible.

The Anti Harriet said...

The opposition could have stuck the boot into Osborne after he had finished speaking but then Harriet Harpic Harperson started squawking off into her special public-sector luvvy outer space tangent clearly not having a grasp of economics or typically not acknowledging the fact it was the former government that got the country into the current shit it's in.

Carry on Harriet, you will keep your communist loving party in opposition for decades, if they can even manage enough votes for that in coming elections. But at least she will be alright in her cream-tea taxpayer funded afternoon office parties with the rest of her cronies, honorary-feminist hubby included.

loki said...

Stop taxing me; the rest of the cuntry can go fuck itself.

Sterilize Haslams Mum (also his sister!) Too late!

If the powers that be were smart, they could tie all this pain into some real "smaller government" initiatives. Getting rid of the half of the DVLA that deals with Road Tax and SORN would be my first step. If we really need a bit of paper in the windscreen in this day and age to prove we are allowed to drive the car, let the MOT stations issue them for the year, on production of a valid insurance certificate. There are already two other taxes capaple of picking up the slack - fuel duty and insurance premium tax.

Quite true Anon. Contact Den Haslam at 12 Farm Tithe Rd Luton for further details!

fuel increases be it fuel duty or vat puts up the cost of EVERYTHING as well as insurance rises.

Chief_Sceptic said...

Axe - 100% - every bloody damned 'fake charity' and quango, and the government departments who have them as clients ...

None of the "10% cut" nonsense - a 'root and branch' clearout ! ...

Oh, and don't stop with a freeze on Council Tax - cut it in half, by reaping most of the administrators, and all of the "diversity outreach coordinators" etc. ...

p.s. - cutting the NHS administration almost in half (by 2013) is a good start, but it really needs a 90% cut - spend the money on cleaneres and nurses ! ...

bofl said...

there are 8 m out of work......

only 400,000 vacancies.......

full employment is a myth!

we will never have enough jobs......

Disenfranchised of Buckingham said...

Bofl there are plenty of jobs at the right rate. Bloody labour made it uneconomic to employ people. At £4 per hour I would recruit. At £3 it makes sense to make more stuff in the UK rather than in China. At £2 per hour you can have full employment.

Why the hell do British peasants think they are worth more than Chinese or Indian peasants? They are worth a quarter of a Chinese peasant who is better educated and works harder.

bofl said...

Disenfranchised of Buckingham......

im my experience most people are desperate to work......living on the dole is shit......

however we have an over supply of people.there are job sites on the net which show the number of applications received for each position....some jobs have 2-300 applications each!

there are of course some lazy people.there are also lazy people IN employment-along with thickos or over-promoted tossers who have sucked their way up.

screaming at the less well off does not actually sort out the problem.....

all of our rules and regulations come from politicians and the wealthy....not from those living in council tower blocks.....

the 'tax on jobs' + tax on savings + every other piece of shit comes from hoons like blair,brown,balls,cooper etc.....

Punisher said...

You guys are like a bunch of closet queens admiring each other's six packs and biceps while secretly dying to wrap your lips around and suck each other's cocks to foaming orgasm! What a bunch of pathetic simpering mouth-breathers you dick-splashes truly are. I bet you move your lips and point to words with your fingers when you read THE SUN and trail your knuckles along the ground when you walk you chimps. What a flock of pathetic, ovine, bleating, uneducated, inbred, limp-wristed, motherfucking bastards you are to be sure!

Eat shit and die you spawny-eyed, limp-dicked, incontinent, sexually confused catamites!

And Disenfranchised of Buckingham. Yea, well maybe Hitler did have a point about weeding out racial inferiority. You yourself, you ignorant cunt, represent prime fucking rib! The best thing that could happen to you and for the world is for you to be destroyed and boiled down for soap, you completely useless sack of decomposing stinking shit!

Fuck you all you Nazi cunts!

Why don't you just shut the fuck up and carry on doing the doggy paddle in the shallow end of the gene pool where you and your quasi-human ancestors belong?

Arseholes!

Sarf of the River said...

If anyone is in doubt of their sexuality it appears to be you Punisher.

Disenfranchised of Buckingham said...

Punisher, what is your problem?

An unemployed layabout worried about your dole?

My point is quite simple. People like me are being robbed to keep lazy socialist scum alive.

You can live your life any way you like but you shouldn't expect me to pay for it.

Don't want to work? Fine by me, you can starve. If you want my money then you should live by my standards.

Shug Niggurath said...

All staff currently employed by the NHS to work in health education roles (smoking cessation, healthy eating etc) laid off - let gyms and health clubs take them on and see how many people pay extra for their 'services'.

All community development trusts cut loose from the teat and made to raise their own funding by the old charity method - public donations, if we really need them they'll stand alone eh?

Community Wardens and PCSOs paid off.

All assistant teachers except for special needs schools and pupils paid off.

One third of all managerial posts in the public sector made redundant.

All job centres closed and instead moved online, local libraries with free computer access points to job market websites.

All council youth projects cancelled, local churches, scout type organisations etc encouraged to set up their own youth clubs and events. Expenses subsidised for three years.

No government funding for charities of any kind.

DLA paid from GP practice budgets.

Unemployment benefits (including housing benefits) paid for maximum period of one year. 3% reduction in NI and employees encouraged to take their own insurances against redundancy.

Travel to work costs and lunch expenses tax deductible with receipts / proof of payment.

No government subsidy for any type of energy production.

BBC privatised and government funding for BBC Worldwide cancelled.

Give everyone a year to get used to the above then round two next year I suppose.
