Right-wing Daily Telegraph promotes Labour!
Incredible but true.
An article in the Daily Telegraph, the arch blue Tory newspaper, on 8 April 2014, calls Ed Miliband as a more hopeful prophet, whilst saying the plan put forward at a local speech by him was broadly similar to one produced by Tory Lord Heseltine in the past.
Lord Adonis describes the plan as Heseltine on steroids.
But the article did confirm that London has almost all the signs of the nation's recovery, in contrast to the rest of the UK, along with the majority of government's transport infrastructure investment.
Labour's cost of living only appears to deal with the squeezed middle, as offering the middle class better jobs in the vain hope this will offer a ladder of opportunity to the working poor.
A squeezed middle where pay rises are being to happen will not be interested in Labour.
Incredible for a Daily Telegraph article they cited that Labour was not for blue collar workers not on a living wage, with the reports published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundations that people are choosing whether to eat or heat and falling into rent arrears because of the bedroom tax.
Describing Labour as viewing those in the north of England as an anachronistic race of Andy Capps preserved in beer and Woodbines.
If Labour win in 2015 to form a government, then UKIP could profit by the unpopularity of Labour's term in office by winning the 2020 general election, as the article stated that of the 100 seats giving a potential future of more UKIP votes, 72 were held by Labour, including Ed Miliband's seat.
As Ed Balls has said they will just follow Tory spending plans, as shown now by the Heseltine on steroids idea by Labour for regional decentralisation, then there is no point in voting for yet another right wing party.
As Labour is appearing in articles in the true blue Daily Telegraph, in an article also extolling the virtues of UKIP, then we can see that we have a tweedledee and tweedledum alert of exact clone political parties of each other to the right of politics.
Amongst the working poor, are the half of women 60-66 on wages flat-lined to 2002 levels.
The majority reason women aged 60-66 not in work is due to disability and / or chronic illness and those benefits being lost or never gained.
The Bedroom tax impact pensioners by the raised retirement age, meaning if one partner is below 66 for women and older or older for men, then they suffer the Bedroom Tax.
Whilst MPs can get away with expenses scandals, profit on house sales without paying capital gains tax, and getting a second home expenses of £20,100 per year of whole houses of spare room subsidy.
The Pension Bill was bad enough. Worse is to come with the Flat Rate Pension in 2016, which is less or even nil income in old age altogether, especially to women.
