The depths that Labour and its supporters will sometimes go to to claim moral superiority and righteousness are sometimes just staggering. I present to you this article at Labour Home by one Peter Kenyon:
"By carping on about debt levels, the Tories are both increasing the risk of higher import prices and hence domestic price levels by talking the currency down."
In order to make such a statement, Kenyon would have to prove that 'carping on' in such a manner will affect such things. The reason why he hasn't is because he can't. We saw only a few weeks ago how, after George Osborne had warned about the quarter-value drop of the pound against the dollar, the pound actually went up the next week. International currency markets care very little about what individual people say, let alone what Shadow Chancellors say.
"Any politician that continues to whinge about debt levels is debasing the currency. Rather than focusing on Conservative shadow home affairs spokesman Damian Green and the ham-fisted way in which the police handled their investigation into a possible serial leaker of government documents, I'm much more concerned to see Conservatives in the dock charged with treason for undermining sterling."
You got that, right? Any attempts made to talk about Labour increasing the national debt to £1 trillion should be seen as treasonous, and those who speak of Gordon Brown's master plan in less than glowing terms should be carted off to the Tower of London for a prompt hanging.
"Wikipedia helpfully states: 'In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of disloyalty to one's sovereign or nation.... A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.' Quite so."
Here we see it confirmed that Kenyon sees no difference between the Labour Party and the United Kingdom. If you don't support the Labour Party you are against the nation, because the Labour Party, naturally, only works in the nation's interests. It's thinking like this that leads to the Gulag you sinister, totalitarian wanker.
"Public money is allocated to support Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, if any one can think of a better way of bring the Tories to their senses, I'm all ears."
What utter nonsense. Public money on a vast scale is allocated to support the Government; it's called the Civil Service. And no administration in history has done as much to undermine the impartiality of the Civil Service as the one we have now. It's telling how shocked Labour were that the mole in the Damien Green story was a Conservative supporter; probably because they thought they'd hounded them all out.
It is often a charge levelled against the Conservatives that under the surface we're all racist, bigoted homophobes who hate poor people and the working classes. What Kenyon shows with this article is that there are those in the Labour Party who wish for an end to democracy, the creation of a fascist state, and the silencing of all opposition through the ritualistic abuse of law.
