The tories are simply not telling us what we want to hear

Monday, 01 March 2010 08:23

The reason the Conservatives are having such a poor showing in the opinion polls is that they are not telling us, the electorate, what we want to hear.

There are major issues that are being ignored, what we should be hearing is:

  • no immigration
  • changes to immigration rules so no more dependants get in
  • troops out of Afghanistan immediately
  • cuts to dole and handouts to the 3 kids by different fathers brigade
  • scrap political correctness everywhere
  • bring back matrons to hospitals
  • sweep away CCTV cameras and start trusting people more
  • dismantle the independent safeguarding authority

13 years of Labour has produced a Britain that is strangled by rules and regulation, where people can't give next door's kids a lift to school without being regarded as pedophiles. This has to change.

Come on Cameron, start telling it like it is!

 

Eat seasonal foods

Monday, 01 March 2010 08:12

If you really are concerned about carbon footprints (which are simply scaremongering by government and the green gestapo anyway) the one thing you can do that will cut lots of emissions is to eat seasonal foods.

The supermarkets have made a fortune simply be providing us with out of season foods, strawberries all the year round, green pea pods in December and baby sweet corn in November. This is simple madness.

Food is grown on plants, which means that as far as the UK is concerned stawberries used to be available from about the first week in June, the season was relatively short and was then extended by strawberries from Scotland where the weather is a bit cooler and the plants cropped later.

Same with peas and other vegetables.

The public's demand for out of season strawberries is such that we have acres of glass houses being used to force the plants, huge quantities of fuel being used to heat them and in other countries production of strawberries and then sending them to the UK by air.

So, if you really want to do something that you can feel good about, leave the strawberries on the shelf, even when they are on a yellow label. That way you will do you bit and feel really smug.

 

Kraft wastes no time is slashing UK jobs - what did you expect?

Tuesday, 09 February 2010 22:29

Just days after taking over Cadbury's the US food giant Kraft decides to close a UK factory with the loss of 400 jobs.

This website has pointed out the folly of allowing foreign companies to buy British enterprises before, to little effect. Our government thinks it's a good thing, inward investment they call it. Here at Listen to the People we call it exporting jobs and profits. Foreign owners are interested in one thing, that's how much money they can take out of the company and back to their country.

Cadbury's was purchased by Kraft with borrowed money, the interest has to be paid on that money and it's going to be paid by sacking British workers, plus the direct losses of all the money that they spent which fed other businesses. The rest of us end up paying because the government will be paying part of the redundancy money and dole etc etc of the sacked workers.

Well done Nu Liarbor.
