I have a question regarding this post, Roc.

For 40 years, the Tories have droned on about the 'Winter of Discontent' telling all and sundry that the bins weren't emptied (in London) and blaming a Labour government.

Why, then, aren't they accepting the same responsibility when the bins don't get emptied in our second city, Birmingham ?

Is it because of selective memory, or simply bare-faced hypocrisy ?


Oh, I don't think it is selective memory, maybe it's because it is a Labour Council, give it some thought. There is a pattern when Labour get anywhere near power. Massive strikes, yes your right "The winter of discontent happened under Labours watch". If it had happened under the tories you lot would have droned on about it more than the Tories.

My council is Tory, our Council Tax has risen by 6.8%, much more than the neighbouring Labour councils. Tory Northants council is bankrupt. You blame Labour. :shake head:


Tory councils were screaming for the need to raise tax by more than double inflation due to stupid austerity cuts

So the binmen in London were only on strike in boroughs with Labour councils in charge ???

:pmsl: :pmsl: :pmsl:

No, they weren't, were they.... The Conservative controlled Westminster City Council used Leicester Square in the heart of London's West End for piles of rubbish....

Rubbish piling up in Leicester Square, central London as decided by Westminster City Council as refuse collectors strike for a pay rise during The Winter of Discontent. Horror film Damien - Omen II opens at the Leicester Square Theatre, London

If you knew how to read, you would have noticed I said on AVERAGE, But please note in the 13 years of Labours rule, Council tax doubled. It has not doubled since the Conservatives came into power. Please do read things properly then comment accordingly, can you do that. "Rocthedog walks away with a Shake of the head" : off head:

New Labour. Why do you a neo-Liberal hate neo-Liberal New Labour? Don';t you want our children to have a decent education, investment in social housing for white British? You must really hate British people but then you live in Spain.

My council tax has gone up 4% under the Tories.

I don't know why I keep bothering about all these sick disabled people. And people who have crime committed against them then go and vote Tory.

Fuck em. If they're not bothered about themselves then I'm not going to be. Got to get into the Tory frame of mind here.
