David Cameron can thump the table, stamp his feet and shout all he likes …. he’s been caught out in a lie and now the pigeons have come home to roost!
When you have an (unelected) prime minister and a chancellor of the exchequer (who doesn’t even know his seven times table), who have manipulated and lied about the economy, they shouldn’t be surprised when they are forced to live up to their fiction.
The EU have asked the UK to pay £1.7 billion pounds because… the UK economy has improved.
If the economy HAD improved to the extent that CaMORON says it has, then this payment would not be too much of a problem.
There has indeed been an improvement in the economy, but only because of factors such as the money from activities such as drug use and prostitution being used to bolster the figures.
Prostitution and illegal drugs are contributing around £10 billion a year to the British economy, according to official data released last May (source ONS)
More than half of that – £5.3 billion – is attributable to prostitution, according to estimated figures from the Office for National Statistics. Illegal drugs are worth £4.4bn.
Britain has to pay. No ifs, no buts. The adjustment is “automatic”.
A bill for £1.7billion will sting at any time but the political price paid by Mr Cameron could be really eye watering for the Tories.
We all know CaMORON and Gidiot have lied about the real picture of the UK economy.
That is why Mark Carney (Governer of the Bank of England … I know he’s Canadian, mad isn’t it) has delayed any increase in the interest rates.
Originally, interest rates were set to rise when unemployment fell below 7.2%. Well, it’s below that now, so why no increase? Because, Mr Carney is not stupid, he knows that the unemployment figures are false, because he knows that people claiming JSA/ESA who are on workfare programmes are counted as employed when quite clearly they are not.
He knows that the slight improvement in the economy is not being felt by the likes of you and me, but is only felt by large multi million pound turnover companies who benefit from UK tax relief and contrived tax measures such as transfer pricing. These companies pay no or very little corporation tax to the treasury.
So, Mr CaMORON, you’ve been hoisted by your own petard and caught out in a lie; so do the decent thing and resign!
