Osborne’s Autumn Statement in a nutshell: old people are too expensive.

This just seems to be Gorgeous George’s attitude to the elderly, concisely summed up. When I was small, one of the families in our street moved to America with the father’s job. A little while later, they came back to visit. When asked about what The Land of the Free was like, they said it was fine, so long as you weren’t old, Black or poor. Gideon, Cameron and the Tories have been highly impressed by American free-enterprise economics and have adopted much of the Republican party’s attitudes and policies. Indeed, during the late ’80s and early ’90s there was even a small, Republican Party UK, to which a number of well-known British Conservatives belonged. And this is apart from the British-American Project launched by Reagan that recruited many British politicians, businessmen and newspaper magnates and acted as a conduit for American policies into this country. You won’t hear about BAP in the papers, as previous editors of the Times, for example, have been members and deliberately spiked stories about this elite club. Others of its alumni have included one Anthony Blair, previously resident at 10 Downing Street. Welcome to the 51st state!

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s Gideon!)

Here’s George Osborne’s Autumn Statement in a nutshell so you don’t have to read all the boring, predictable details:

  1. All you old, poor and disabled people are still costing us far too much, so we’re just going to have to punish you even more now.
  2. Don’t blame me, it’s Gordon Brown’s fault for causing the global economic recession.
  3. Suck it up.
