Ed Miliband made the above statement in Ipswich about a ‘one nation country’ under his Labour Party.
It’s a little bit ironic that he is championing “rebuilding Britain together” but is the one heavily involved in vicious attacks on the majority of the country. When Miliband quotes the ‘rich v poor’ slogans at every possible turn, it isn't about trying to release people from the shackles of bloated government hand-outs - it’s about strengthening the dependency society (Labour Party voters). This is not surprising coming from an individual stooped in Marxist theory and bound to the Unions which elected him leader of his party.
Tony Blair advocated open borders, to attract new voters for his political party.
Red Ed wants the same with a permanent underclass dependent society.
In his speech he touched on the idea of class warfare and blamed everything on David Cameron for all the ills of the country. However it’s Ed Miliband not David Cameron who has tried to divide the people in to class, race and other such things.
The people of Britain, the hard working ones, are tired of class politics and focus groups. Government should be intended to be in the background, assisting the worker to prosper, not impose quotas, targets and other such politically correct benchmarks.
Ed Miliband, like most Lefty leaders are not able to offer anything other than government-centered ideas aka Marxism.
Margaret Thatcher put it quite nicely when talking about the way a government should be run:
“We intended policy in the 1980s to be directed towards fundamentally different goals from those of most of the post-war ear. We believed that since jobs (in a free society) did not depend on government but upon satisfying customers, there was no point in setting targets for 'full' employment. Instead, government should create the right framework of sound money, low taxes, light regulation and flexible markets (including labour markets) to allow prosperity and employment to grow.”
That is how it should work and essentially Ed Miliband wants to get away from that and adopt the below policy which Maggie T warned us of:
“I think we have gone through a period when too many children and people have been given to understand 'I have a problem, it is the government's job to cope with it!' or 'I have a problem, I will go and get a grant to cope with it!'; 'I am homeless, the government must house me!' and so they are casting their problems on society and who is society? There is no such thing! There are individual men and women and there are families, and no government can do anything except through people and people look to themselves first.
It is our duty to look after ourselves and then also to help look after our neighbour and life is a reciprocal business and people have got the entitlements too much in mind without the obligations.” It is our duty to look after ourselves and then also to help look after our neighbour and life is a reciprocal business and people have got the entitlements too much in mind without the obligations.”
If you listen to most BBC Radio phone-ins today the questions is not what you can do for your country, but what government can do for me.
The Iron Lady showed the difference between the voting for a Capitalist and voting for a Marxist.
It is time for pure Capitalism to come to prominence again and reject the idiocy of Ed Miliband.
