More houses for people that need them and the Labour Party are a contradiction in terms
|John Cruddas MP - Labour Party|
John Cruddas is a favourite child of the Labour Party, like many other Labour politicians, says one thing and does another. I suppose that when so many people don’t have a place that they can home, a Labour politician should not have three places called home. The Daily Mail tells us that apart from having two homes, John Cruddas also has a home in Ireland.
The Labour administration enjoyed very much the housing prices boom when a home that was worth £90,000 suddenly was being sold at £450,000. They kept telling ordinary people that now they were rich because their homes were worth quite a few times more. They talked about it as a sign of prosperity when in fact it was sheer speculation in the housing market leading to increased borrowing and rising debts.
Labour’s opposition to budget cuts is not compatible with the news of a prominent Labour politician – Baroness Ashton – getting more than £133,000 a year from October 1914 until December 31st 2017 for doing nothing.
Under Labour the population of Britain rose by not less than 16% in a few years and most of them are on benefits. No wonder the Labour Party is so opposed to benefits reduction. In places like Tower Hamlets, where there is a huge contingent of Muslim families, 42 per cent of them are on benefits.
The lack of consistency of the Labour Party is appalling and this is the kind of news that the Labour Party does not want ordinary voters to know about.
