First we have the fuel dispute; surely this government should be trying to resolve the issue with the tanker drivers not causing panic and creating long queues at petrol stations. Then they come up with advice from the idiotic Francis Maude to stockpile fuel in jerry cans, which every motoring and safety organisation immediately condemned as dangerous.
We cannot help but think they are deliberately trying to ignite a situation into becoming a prolonged strike so they can then blame the reverse economy on the unions. Surely a government has a responsibility to be part of the solution and not be fanning the flames of the dispute from the side-lines.
Another example of the sleaze and lies they spread is the VAT raise in hot food. Last week the government lowers the tax rate for millionaires to save them millions of pounds while at the same time increasing the VAT ordinary families has to pay for hot foods at a time when their wages are rising slowly, if at all.
When he is criticised for raising the price of hot food, David Cameron immediately says he is also hitting himself because he regularly buys Cornish pasties. He stated; “I am a pasty-eater myself. I go to Cornwall on holiday and I love a hot pasty. I think the last one I bought was from the West Cornwall Pasty Company. I seem to remember I was in Leeds station at the time and the choice was whether to have one of their small ones or one of their large ones. I have a feeling I opted for the large one, and very good it was too.”
We thought the image of David Cameron regularly tucking into a pasty was laughable and then British Rail stepped forward and made it even funnier. They said the West Cornwall Pasty Company on Leeds station closed down FIVE YEARS AGO!
David Cameron, you’re telling porky pies… or is that pasties?
