Out of interest....what crap have the Labour Party been wasting fortunes on?


What about:
wars that have nothing to do with us
benefits given to scroungers
selling our gold reserves off for nothing
paying peole to have children,
that is just for starters :roll: :lol:


Erm
Wars? You're on sketchy ground there :wink: I agreed with the Iraq war as much as the Falklands.....probably due to the special relationship we have with the USA. :x
Benefits to scroungers....well done you
Selling gold reserves....to prop up the banks
Paying people to have children...see above
Good grief

The Capitalist system had to save the banking system. If it hadn't then the system would have crashed and end of money as a exchange medium as it would be worthless. Then i and others wouldn't go to work and couldn't buy goods so businesses would crash. Then rioting & looting will take place.
End of Capitalist system. Then what next?

Politics aside...that such a once thriving manufacturing and prosperous nation as ours could lose 1.5 trillion on paper just beggars belief.
Where did it all go wrong?

Oh..were back to Maggy :lol:
