An awful set of front pages for the Chancellor

6th December, 2012 7:55 am

If the Tories thought the Autumn Statement would get an easier ride in the press than usual post-Leveson, they were sorely mistaken. Most of the papers have gone for critical front pages…

The only paper still openly backing the Chancellor on their front page this morning was the Express…

    That picture from the Grauniad of Alexander, Osborne and Cameron laughing really is utterly repellent.

    I find it very disturbing that this bunch of inadequates seem to find (mis)running a country such a jolly jape. The words brewery, p*ss-up, and couldn’t run spring to mind.

    I remember now why they were laughing. Ed Balls had stumbled over his words, as he has a speech impediment that he has to cope with. What *lovely* people ….

    The Express headlines are saying his budget is full of cheerful things – interesting as it is often said they have quite an elderly readership – who relatively comfortably off have had a good budget in many ways. Unhappily the Mirror leads on another BBC celeb story – I wonder sometimes if things are as bad as they are painted by those of us on the Left. If things are really that bad for poorer families would we not see more complaints and bitterness; political anger seems mooted and ‘the consensus’ is that we have been giving too many tax credits to the ‘long term’ benefits receivers and discouraged mums and dads with many kids from really looking for work – even the antti – budget lady who featured on BBC news said on her estate she knew of people who just did not get up and go. I think we have to really think through these issues – we need a reality check.

    Ah the Express, that’s a a joke mag right? When even Tory papers turn on him as do the public Gideon can’t keep pointing the finger at Labour or the eurozone crisis.

    Just beggars belief that we’ll be stuck with this fool as Chancellor for another 2 and half years minimum. There’s still towels that need folding at Selfridges.

  • The picture of those three creeps – Alexander, Osborne and Cameron – laughing at someone because they have a stutter shows what a repellant bunch they are. Labour should use that picture at the next election.

    Police and crime commissioners can cut crime – so let’s overcome the apathy

    Following selection as the Labour candidate for police and crime commissioner for Devon and Cornwall in February 2016 I have campaigned across this vast constituency of 1.3 million voters and the most common response I have received is “Election? What election?”. It is utterly shocking that the Government has failed to promote the Commissioner’s post and, most importantly, the elections taking place across England and Wales on Thursday. After introducing the post following their 2010 manifesto pledge anyone would think the Conservatives – and Theresa May […]

    New Labour figures throw weight behind In campaign

    Major New Labour figures are throwing their weight behind the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, with a series of major interventions – including a possible return for Tony Blair. Former Chancellor Alistair Darling has warned that a vote to leave the EU could cost the UK £250 billion in lost trade, while Peter Mandelson has hit out at the anti-immigration rhetoric of the Out campaign. Darling said that pulling out of the single market would introduce greater trade […]

    Campaign round-up: Two days to go

    It’s two days until voters go to the polls – here’s a quick look at how the elections are shaping up across the country. Quote of the Day “Only a Tory Government with as warped a sense of priorities as this one could issue a statement lauding the roll-out [of Universal Credit] on the same day an independent expert report from the Resolution Foundation shows Tory cuts will completely undermine work incentives in the programme.” – Owen Smith, on the warped […]

    Corbyn: We will not lose any seats

    Jeremy Corbyn has issued a defiant message to his internal critics as he vowed Labour would defy predictions and not lose any seats on Thursday. The under-fire Labour leader confirmed he would “of course” stand in any future leadership election as he told activists to look for electoral gains around the country. Corbyn was speaking in London as he unveiled a new election poster saying: “Elections are about taking sides. Labour is on yours”. “We are not going to lose […]

    Labour’s EU campaign will not hit core vote, survey results say

    Labour’s campaign to remain in the EU will not distance the the party from its electoral base, LabourList readers have said. Last week, Labour Out campaigner Frank Field claimed Labour’s campaign to stay in the EU would distance the party from working class voters, with him estimating 40 per cent of Labour supporters would back leaving the EU. However, almost 65 per cent of readers disagree, saying the party’s pro-European stance would not damage the party. Only 19 per cent […]
