Good for you Nick and good to put a face to the comments as well!
How did you find the meeting with the frontbenchers, what sort of feedback did they give you, particularly the LDs?
I shall aim to catch up on mylegal tomorrow sometime, haven't been on in weeks - sorry!
It's going to be a long haul but we can't go quietly in to the night and must fight this Govt every step of the way.
Do you really think so Nick? If I do keep on taking the pills do you ever think that I'll be on an equal intellectual footing as you and stuart? Or must I suffer forever at the hands of the Bournemouth assassin who ridicules the plight of the mentally less fortunate?
So Nick you don't agree with me that it is a good that houses only cost $15,000? You want expensive housing?
I don't do Freudian slips! the political-left are bankrupt..
The Labour front bench and some of the Liberals are very much on side Lou; - some of the Tories are too, but they are few and far between. There's thousands of points which have been raised but it's now fine tuning the best points. There's been good feedback from many quarters. Lord Bach, Sadiq Khan are very much on side! Praise goes to Yvonne Fovargue for raising the campaign; - she's been brilliant. But there's no way we can afford to be complacent - oh no!
Mr D if you know of any houses which come on the market for as little as that - please let me know. We'll never see mainstream houses that cheaply over here; - who ever is in power.
Oh yes Mr D; just keep taking them and follow the instructions and you'll be as right as rain one day. I'm slightly puzzled as to how the BA is going to get you down under; you've not nipped on a Quantus plane and are now to be found loitering with intent under the pier are you?
Disability Living Allowance suited Cameron when he claimed it for his now sadly dead son Ivan. There's no reason why he shouldn't have done so; - but please having claimed it will all his wealth - let's not be having lessons on what the rest of the severely disabled should or should not claim.
Likewise you've got loads of these millionaire MP's with children - all happy to take their slice of Child Benefit and extra parliamentary allowances for their families.
Perhaps before they go moral preaching - they should get their own morals in line with they say.
Been trying to post on here for days. Your blog doesn't work fuckos, I'm off to The Economist instead...
@Nick: So that's you. Yes it was funny seeing you. And what can I say without insulting you? Couldn't you talk a bit quicker and cut out all the bum fluff?
Don't you think it would best if the welfare state wasn't needed; if there could be system without it? I know you would be out of a job but if people could live comfortably then surely it is preferable to what is happening now?
And if you think about the whole welfare 'enterprise' it's essentially about people not doing anything for other people and being paid to do so by people working. Even the people working in the sector are in fact being paid by taxpayers. And what is the contribution of this 'sector' to the rest of society? Nothing. That's why government policy must be aimed at cutting this sector down to zero.
Ps I have all my hair and it's hardly grey.

@Lou: 'Good for you Nick and good to put a face to the comments as well!'
We know why you don't show your face. Have you wiped it off yet?
