    MoT, the BBC might not be putting it on. That is from a Russian news feed.

    Oh, I see. I thought you were suggesting that the British were somehow censoring any related content on Youtube. Having it removed etc. I was confused. :tongue:

    Ordinary people??....I think you'll find that it's the remenants of the last Labour gov'ts supporters.The one's with the shortest memories in history; i.e those that forget that this financial mess is the a legacy of the socialists 13 year stint in office.That and a bunch 'last gasp' trade unions closely dependant on the said administration.
    Def not not 30,000 people tho.Either way it's hardly the October Revolution!!!

    The Cons are disgrace with all these cuts, they didn't even get a majority yet think they can bring all these drastic new laws. Bring Labour back quick to save the day before the Cons have completly fucked the country up and there's no way back.

    I'm confused. Are you saying that the government is correct to be cutting public funding in areas such as healthcare?

    So what are you saying? Mob rule?
    If it's unfunded yes it is. You don't go out and buy a BMW when you can't afford one do you?

    A BMW can't save your life in the way a doctor or fireman can. You can't put a price on a life. Everyone should be able to see a doctor when they're ill and receive treatment. A struggling family shouldn't be left to starve. Cutting unnecessary red-tape is one thing, cutting life-changing services is another.

    And neither of your examples happen. Here in the US at least. But who gets to pay the bills? The people with no money?

    Just watched the video. Wow, that shit is just like the leftist marches here. Lots of similar signs around. All with "Socialist Worker" splayed across them.

    Government cuts make people's lives a lot harder. The rich should be happy to 'pay the bill' because they have the money to spare. Those with no money are the ones needing help.

    That's hilarious.Do you have any idea how dept much this administration inherited from the previous Labour govt??..The coalition have only been in power just over a year,so how exactl;y have they 'fucked up the country'. As for not 'even getting a majority',the last Labour govt did have a sizeable majority and still managed to give Britain the biggest national debt in history!!!!....Sounds like you want the present govt to just keep spend,spend,spending.Nice one!
