Budget 2015: The return of Tina - BBC News
Tina, it would appear, is back. Forgotten Tina? The acronym for There Is No Alternative? Regularly cited by Margaret Thatcher? Thatcher? Oh, come on, it hasn't been that long since the Tories were in sole command of the UK. [ // history rhymes; Angela Merkel and her "Alternativlos." = There is No Alternative. ] George Osborne set out quite deliberately in a range of ways to suggest that there is no effective or realistic alternative to his approach. [...] It is aimed over their heads at the voters. Mr Osborne is seeking to suggest that there is a remorseless logic to his package, that only the ingrate or innumerate would oppose it.

The Tory budget plan to cut tax credits – is it naive or just plain cynical? | Politics | The Guardian
[// If the Toff thinks firms will pay living wage & will not try to skirt around, he is intellectually a fraud & a cynic. //] [...] [P]roclaiming his renewed determination 2 take 12bn more out of the 220bn benefits bill, Osborne is being dishonest in an Alex Salmond sort of way. He & Dave have again ringfenced the £95bn pensioners share of the bill (state pensions plus perks like free TV licences), which is by far the largest component. Why? Pensioners bother to vote. They also retain the quaint old habit of buying newspapers. The Tory newspapers support pensioner perks. [ No Leadership, opportunistic, ... ] &! bit.ly/1KIQ4Tg Greek turmoil offers Osborne justification for his dictum of austerity [...] UK Manufacturing just 10% of Economy, oil capital shrinking, &! We are all in this together ... he pits each against each other for his agenda, ideology, dogma of the small state &free market while bailing out crony capitalism &zombie banks &treating them all same as if nothing happened

WikiLeaks - Espionnage Élysée - Angela Merkel on Greece and Europe (actions speak louder than words).
Earlier reporting reveals that following talks last week in Berlin with Merkel, Hollande complained that nothing of substance was achieved; it was purely for show. Hollande had found the chancellor fixated on the Fiscal Pact and above all on Greece, on which he claimed she had given up and was unwilling to budge. // Angela (Germany) put(s) national and personal political interests first second third and last .... // symptoms of our time, even politicians jump on "everybody for himself" //

Autumn Statement 2014: Osborne's Cuts 'Will See Public Spending Fall To Lowest Level In 80 Years'
Tony Dolphin, senior economist at the Institute for Public Policy and Research, warned that Osborne's planned cuts were "implausible". "Given the scale of cuts in the public sector, [the OBR] can only make its growth forecast add up by assuming that consumer demand is boosted by households taking on more debt - and at an unprecedented pace. "Extraordinarily, the OBR thinks that by 2019 the household sector will have a financial deficit twice as big as in 2007 and 2008 when the financial crisis hit. As result, the household debt-to-income ratio is forecast 2 rise beyond its pre-crisis peak 2 over 180%. "This is pretty implausible. If the next government tries 2 follow the deficit reduction path set out in the Autumn Statement, it can only succeed in the short-term because the household sector takes on debt @ a faster pace than it did before the financial crisis. [this warning was heeded some years ago alrdy that consumer&corp would have to take on debt to spend to keep GDP # up!!!]
