George

your second sentence contradicts your first sentence.

"What no one knows is by how much the failed electioneering bribe benefitted the business community in the Borough. A ONCE OFF paltry 50 will not have saved our local businesses/traders or increased employment"

The problem you and I both have here is we can't measure everything, or prove everything. You can't prove that most people paid off debt with the 50, though I doubt people knocked 50 off their mortgage, they might have.

I can't prove how much was spent in towns in Ealing, but as I have explained before, we felt that the services being provided in town centres by the private sector, and the jobs provided by the private sector needed support during a recession.

you obviously don't think the private sector, where most of the money comes from to pay for the services you want to protect, are as worthy of any kind of support.

That's where we differ. The healthier the private secotr, the easier it is to pay for the kinds of services we want and need. Where do you think the money comes from George.

George, you also said
"No person who manages their finances prudently borrows before an impending financial crisis which you already knew about. Instead they put the money aside".

Look at the borrowing figures from 1999 to 2008 before the backside fell out of the economy and you will see that the previous Labour government borrowed on average over 30bn pa. The economy was growing and they were spending 30bn more than they were taking in in taxes

that might put yours and Robin Taylors bellyaching into context. We are in the hole we are in because that jack ass Gordon Brown didn't do what you and most people think they should do, save while you can so when the hard times come, you have something to fall back on. In other words, don't spend more than you are taking in, in taxes.

As Liam Byrne, the former treasury minister famously said in a note to George Osborne after the election, "THERE'S NO MONEY LEFT".

That's where the blame lays George and Robin, but if you want to blame us for giving back taxpayers their own money when they really needed it most, then good luck to you.

Can I recommend that you visit www.debtbomshell.com

The figures they are talking about are a little bit higher than the 6m that has been bothering you
