Rejoice!!!


Here is the list of funding for projects agreed to by the Labour government since January 2010 which have been axed, or suspended by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government


The full list of projects cancelled:


Stonehenge Visitor Centre: £25m- Welcome everyone. Here are some rocks. In a field.


Local Authority Leader Boards: £16m


Sheffield Forgemasters International Limited: £80m


Rollout of the Future Jobs Fund: £290m -


Six month offer recruitment subsidies: £30m- NO


Extension of Young Person's Guarantee to 2011/12: £450m


Two year Jobseeker's Guarantee: £515m- Try the Army


Active Challenge Routes - Walk England: £2m- Nope, I'm not even going there


County Sports Partnerships : £6m- Fuck off, use a phone


North Tees and Hartlepool hospital: £450m- Send in Oxfam instead


Local Authority Business Growth Initiative: £50m- More aromatherapy shops? How many astral gem shops does Powys need?


Outukumpu: £13m


List of projects suspended:

Libraries Modernisation Programme: £12m- we still have libraries?


Sheffield Retail Quarter: £12m


Kent Thameside Strategic Transport Programme: £23m


University Enterprise Capital Fund: £25m


Newton Scholarships: £25m


Health Research Support Initiative: £73m


Leeds Holt Park Well-being Centre: £50m- No one in Leeds is well. It's why they live there


Birmingham Magistrates Court: £94m


Successor Deterrent Extension to Concept Phase Long Lead Items: £66m


Search and Rescue Helicopters: £4.6bn (Successor Deterrent Extension to Concept Phase Long Lead Items will be reviewed as part of the broader Trident value for money review, which will report in the coming weeks. Search and Rescue Helicopters will be reviewed as a matter of urgency) - thank fuck for that. If you want to walk in the peak district in a t-shirt and flip flops in January, pay for your own fucking rescue


A14 Road: £1.1bn - this road doesn't need improving. It just needs the Police to breathalize the drunken Latvian lorry drivers heading North from Harwich and the cheap bar on the cross channel ferry.



Now before anyone says "what a saving", it isn't. It will not put one penny back in your pocket. We have to start getting rid of the stuff that actually will. Because only when YOU have money in YOUR pocket to spend, will the economy recover. As long as we have a Potato Marketing board and a queue of desirables waiting at Calais, we are not doing it right.

Have you TRIED driving to Stonehenge in summer?

A bypass might be better, or just dismantle the pile of shit and put it in Greenwich.

If you are going there to visit a stone circle there are *loads* of them elsewhere.

As a regular user of the A14 I can tell you it is a really shite road, especially the bit beween Huntingdon and Cambridge. The nearside lane is choc a bloc with lorries, many of them indeed foreign and dangerous! I've managed to avoid being sideswiped 3 times. The offside lane of course has the selfish twats in lorries overtaking at a fraction of 1mph greater than the lorry in the nearside lane. Oh joy! I know a much prettier route through the villages though.

This will be about the 4th or 5th time this road improvement has been cancelled. It was OK until the rest of the A14 linked to the M1 and M6. I think a poxy dual carriageway to major ports was daft anyway. A choke point. You only get 3 lanes from Stansted onwards. The Northampton bit is hilly too, unlike Cambridgeshire so more opportunity for inconsiderate lorry/lorry overtaking.

A saving of £97m that I thoroughly approve of. For rehousing Irish Travellers illegally building dwellings occupying greenbelt land in Crays Hill essex.

Wikipedia -Dale Farm for the one sided fluffy bolox version.

From the local paper it seems they aren't getting their £97m now. All together awwwwww.

Old Holborn said...

I travel on the A14 all the time. Utter shite. Drunken lorry drivers mostly, pissed up after a night crossing from Holland and six fingered fen dwellers desperate to get back to their carrot fields. Add a liberal sprinkling of Poles in cars with no brakes and you have a recipe for carnage.

Billy Blofeld said...

I know what you mean about those drunken Latvians on the A14......


I had fun laughing at this too...

Labour certainly knew how to piss money up the wall......

The roads around stone henge do need sorting, bit of a shame that.

Still, the idiots in charge for the last 13 years shouldn't have promised it if they couldn't deliver.

They obviously pushed all this through to make the next incumbents look like bastards when it had to all be shelved.

And they obviously think we're stupid enough to go along with it.

I hope a druid curses their dangly bits.

P.S. Avebury is much more betterer than Stone Henge. More accessible.

Magic mushroom anyone?

In Gorton a little hamlet just south of the Peoples Republic of Manchester. priciple exports criminals to Strangeways nick for redistributing wealth by way of theft. Way ahead of most other third world places in the north of England in teenage pregancies and the consumption of lard. This is the stomping ground of Gerald Kaufman MP him of the decent pen we bought him a fucking bargain at 400 quid let alone the cut glass grapefruit bowls a snip at a oner a piece. They built a new swimming pool and a library there state of the art Gorton Tub open for about a month till they had to close because of vandalism, fuck knows how much that cost but the boarding up looks good. The fuckwits who gave the go ahead for these white elepahants realise there are 2 differents types of money, yours which you are careful with and other peoples money so who gives a fuck?

Those Active Challenge Routes have just been rebranded to appeal even more to the ttxtng illiterati.

"Rejoice"....how weird,

Stonehenge is one of the oldest and most mysterious monuments in the world,something the English should be very proud of,it should be celebrated,protected and invested in ,why rejoice Holby, you tight cunt?...:(

bofl said...

Outukumpu? why were we giving a finnish company money?
surely not to buy more jobs to keep the dole figures down?

stonehenge- a really fabulous place..but the road is awful....same as silbury hill.....they do not need a visitors centre though....

as for the having money in our pockets saving the economy i think that is an outdated idea....

most of the stuff we buy is made or grown abroad.........therefore we have money draining away .spending money in the shops only keeps the spotty faced shop assistants of the dole and the landlords rich...

while the money flows out......

we are now net importers of oil...
the banking system is fucked....

at the ports 50% of our ships leave EMPTY!!!!!! another 25 % have rubbish and aggregates........

best get out now while you can still sell your over-valued assets.

I'm a little disappointed about the money not going to forgemasters

however the money didn't fucking exist in the first place and labour shouldn't have fucking promised it to them

even if labour had won the election, whatever god you believe in forbid, forgemasters wouldn't have got a penny of it

and now they are crying about lost opportunity and industries closing down, well here's a few words for you bastards

Corus - closed down on your watch, where were your protestations of losing industries there ?

Cadbury - sold off to Kraft who promptly started asset stripping it and laying workers off despite the promises of that unelected scrote Lord Voldemortelson who oversaw the deal

they have systematically closed down all our major industries and what they didn't close down they sold off, I can't think of a single major british company that isn't at least part foreign owned

all this money they promised in the run up to an election, was just a blatant attempt to buy votes and if they had won we'd now be listening to the spin doctors whirling on about changed priorities and how the money promised will have to wait a bit and by the way it would really help if you enrolled in the ID card scheme and had a CCTV camera focussed on your living room just in case there's any terrorists in there

so to all the people crying about the money they aren't going to get

you weren't going to get any money anyway as the country is over £150Bn in debt, so grow the fuck up and stop whining

And hence I don't need a hand wringing nonsense visitor centre telling me what the Victorians and later archeologists thought it was for when they were busy rebuilding it.

Phlebas said...

Whether you're a new-age hippie or no, by not dealing with the abject state of access to Stonehenge we are telling the world that we really are the bunch of white spat-wearing spivs and chancers they think we are.

Here's a solution, and much cheaper too: shove every single stone up OH's urethra for safe-keeping.

Foreign aid, anyone?

Ian R Thorpe said...

Labour said £6bn would hurt. They lied. There seems to be about £6bn there and we never even felt it.

£6bn is still a fleabite when all the government waste, graft, payola and vanity project expenditure is added up though.

Rolf Harris versus Monet, equal, better, worse? How does one judge art? So long as they don't cut my long term incapacity benefit and housing benefit. The very thought of it makes me fill my pants with lumps of J MacFarlane...Ooh matron.

Ron Broxted said...

On Wednesday 23rd June 2010 these twats who want "Votes for animals" are having a demo. What the fuck is that about? There is an actual movement with moronic bunch of supporters who will try and capitalise on a few piddling gains made in Westminster where a half a dozen veggie bastard M.Ps are now concerned about vivisection and related matters along with inflating expenses claims again. In Sheffield tomorrow there is a march commencing at the Cathedral at 12.30 or there abouts. It is hosted by S.A.F (Sheffield Animal Fondlers) and S.A.E.I.S (Stop Animal Experiments In Sheffield) There should be the usual few ALF faces and pussy paperers there trying to look concerned, providing it doesn't rain or the pet Hamster hasn't hidden their stash and doesn't need to go to the vets or it's sign on day.
I would love to go along and have a good laugh at these self-righteous cunts. Votes for Animals, what a load of bollocks, how would those manning a polling station at an election know whether or not a Penguin had voted already? They all look the fucking same.

Invest in a ‘streets of gold’ programme targeting area improvements to places where people want to walk more but don’t feel safe or that they have the opportunity...
Develop flagship walking routes in every community by 2012..."



Come on Old Holborn, that's got to worth a couple of million.

I'm coming for you, you fascist cunt and when I find you I'm going to stun you, take you out into the countryside, tie you to a tree, scourge you, torture you, fuck you up the arse until you bleed, make you suck my cock and ejaculate down your throat.

You body will never be found after I gut you and cover you with quicklime before burying you in a shallow grave.

RIP fucker.

It'll soon be over for you.

The Penguin said...

Fucking hell, I bet OH is quaking in his boots you moron.

More to the point, there's a very easy cut that could be made which would cost the government NOTHING and would put money back in people's pockets. Abolish the TV licence and make the cunts at the BBC work in the real world.

As for Stonehenge, over-rated pile of old stones only fit for pretend druids to wank over.

The Penguin.

some good stuff has been scrapped also! said...

Whilst not one banker has been bankrupted, whilst not one rich and corrupt political parasite has been sent to prison, whilst we still pay billions into the Eurofascist EU to run our lives and make a mockery of democracy and accountability whilst provaiding a safe haven for usless politicians to retire to such as Dan Hannan the fake libertarian who does bugger all worthwhile for his massive wage, whilst we still pay milions into translators to help colonise the country and fragment it for the EU and global corporates to carve up - the poor, the weak, and young people are having their lives betrayed.

Whilst the EHRC (race police) and politcal correctness, the race relations industry, the Servile State of liberal fascists, overseas aids budgets and the war in Afghanistan continue - the British people are robbed.

Most of what the Tories are scrapping was in fact worthwhile.

Daves Liberal Euronazi brigade parasites march on.

You glibs (ignorant, selfish, self harming bastards) are so easily conned, no doubt some of you even had an expensive education and have no excuse to be as ignorant and gullible as you are.

just as long as you can yah/boo like a demented footbal supporter over something that lost any meaning decades ago.

How do you like `their` tolerence? said...

Anti-English bigotry has fuelled the spiralling number of racist incidents which have “disgraced” the north-east.

Official figures showed that the number of physical and verbal attacks recorded by Grampian Police soared from 390 to 649.

And the most targeted group in the region was white British people.

Last night, as a national retailer confirmed that it will stock controversial “Anyone but England” T-shirts during the World Cup, campaigners were in little doubt that the “British” people being assaulted and subjected to verbal abuse were English.

Someone becomes the victim of a racist attack every 14 hours in Grampian, and more than 1,000 racist incidents were recorded in the region over the two-year period, compared with 748 in neighbouring Tayside.

Broken down, the figures reveal that most were against “white British” people.

As an ex fen dweller I object. Few of us had 6 fingers but webbed feet was common.

Stonehenge is symptomatic of the fact that Labour has invested NOTHING in the South West in thirteen years. But then, of course, we're smarter than the rest of you - we don't vote for the cunts.

Stonehenge is on the A303, the MAIN trunk road from the South East to the South West. In many places, it is still single lane, and there are always roadworks, especially in high summer and on bank holidays.

OH. On libraries you are WRONG. Barbarians destroy libraries, which is what Labour have done, turning them into coffee shops and cheap council information centres.

I read my eyes out as a kid on library books. If there is ANY public service that deserves funds, that's the one.

Fuck you, Broxted. You sound just like the fucking doctors that used to be in Broadmoor when I was there. I've marked your arsehole as a place to warehouse my large, veiny cock on a cold day. But fair dos. Old Holborn's homosexual violation is my main concern. Until I've reamed the shit out of the colon of that shit-stain on the boxer shorts of British society you'll just have to keep fucking your mother while being sodomised by you Dad!

Well you do, because the alterations and bogus theories dreampt up in later years are just as much a part of its history as the original structure.
