Tories to slash welfare by £21billion a year to help reduce deficit – Express

A clown.

A clown.

Reposted here purely because of the comment from cartoonist Gary Barker on Twitter: “Cos it’s worked so well so far. What a clown.”

Chancellor George Osborne indicated he was planning to unleash a fresh raid on benefits to help salvage the nation’s financial fortunes, according to the Excess.

Mr Osborne said he was not prepared to raise taxes or borrow more money to achieve his goal over the next five years, admitting that “difficult decisions” are going to be required.

“Cos it’s worked so well so far.” Gary is right. What a clown.

    Absolute jester, I am convinced he is on something no one in their right mind could perform in such a way, lie after lie and he is convinced he is right !!! Insanity can he not sense the resentment up and down the country, can he really be so blind or is he just plain stupid.

    To quote a Cameronism ” God help the next party who will have to sort the mess they have been left with”.

    He, like the rest of the trashy band couldn’t care less as long as the rich get richer – and they get richer. Cutting the enormous amount of money paid out to the Corporate world in subsidies by the same amount rather than hitting benefits would have little effect on the Business World, but it would stop a lot of people from suffering. £85 billion (so far) on ‘subsidies’ to a sector that is ‘super efficient’ seems a little contradictory? If the Private sector is the answer to all our problems due to it’s ability to make something from nothing why is George handing over so much tax payers cash to it?

    Cutting the Benefits bill will not even make a pinprick in the Deficit and he knows it. What would, is tax rises for the higher earners, tough enforcement of Tax returns from big Corporations and Billionaires, and stopping handing out billions to the private sector.

    That lot would add up to, according to independent assessment, around £140 billion. Just a tad more than any Benefit cuts…
