The staff at Westminster Wing wholeheartedly urge our readers to vote Conservative for security, the economy and Brexit closure.

 

 

This weekend must rank as one of the worst for the Labour Party in the past 5 years.

The broadcasters have seized on press headlines attacking Ed Milibands leadership qualities (or lack of them) and further compounded his woes by quoting many of his detractors in his own party.

Claims that 50% Labour MPs have given up on the forthcoming General Election and instead are readying themselves for a bloody leadership battle after 7th May are credible.

All eyes are looking left, but at The Westminster Wing we see even larger problems looming for the Tories in the run-up to May’s elections.

On the BBCs Sunday Politics Show today, Secretary of State Sajid Javid gave a creditable performance despite Andrew Neil’s ‘Blue Nun’ fuelled aggressive questioning. Political editor of The Sun: Tom Newton Dunn tweeted..

Our own Sir Trev Skint went further:

But, there are only a handful of humble, Tory MPs possessed of the common touch. The vast majority are elitist,  narcissistic and conceited.

Ed Miliband’s bungling of Labour’s election campaign so far, aided by the Tory press, has given these presumptuous types a false sense of populism. It’s palpable, the British voting public will detect it very soon.

Yes David Cameron can point to improvements in the economy but, people are not feeling the benefits of these policies,  they take time to filter through.

Have the Tories peaked too soon thanks to Miliband’s ham-fisted,  self inflicted, atrocious start to his campaign? Could the voters turn in favour of the Labour underdogs if a large gap appears in the Tories popularity polling?

David Cameron needs to emulate Sajid Javid’s humble performances to reign-in his party’s over-confidence or there could be a dramitic turn in the polls, leading to Justine Thornton measuring up the curtains in Downing Street.

same way. Spain is in many ways a more resilient economy than Greece, but the people are just as reactionary, suffering a similar dose of austerity dished out by the current Conservative People’s Party (Conservative (ish),  and their public sector equally as bloated. The Westminster Wing predicts a huge surge for the Podemos (We Can) Party! Follow us for the most intuitive updates available from a British Political Blog.

The people get the government they deserve!

 

The Greeks have frequently flirted with Communism in recent 20th century history. They are perceived as a bureaucratic and corrupt nation.

The Greeks simply expect the other person to pay for their socialist lifestyle. Even Greek millionaires were tax-exempt prior to the financial crisis. Bread makers and Taxi Drivers are considered “Artisans” – and can retire on a generous pension before they reach their sixties!

Joining the Euro zone must have seemed logical, widening their highly subsidised dependencies across 27 wealthier nations. The Germans,  French and English would happily underwrite their profligacy.

So when the world’s economy imploded, their assumed dream of offloading their deficit became their nightmare. The troika, dominated by Frau Merkel forced a new policy on the Greeks “austerity”!

It hasn’t gone down well. Full of righteousness indignation the far left Syriza Party have roused the bloated public sector blob into a revolution. Tomorrow (Sunday 25th January 2015) will produce a Greek government headed by yet another “something for nothing” regime. Syriza will demand those Euro Zone nations who have paid the Greeks wage bill for 3 years now renegotiate,  or, as expected,  wipe out the debt.  This is yet another example of Socialism in action!

A Greek exit (Grexit) from the Euro Zone is anticipated over the next few months. What lies in store for the Greek people is uncertain. It won’t be pleasant or easy, but we can be certain Spain, Italy and Portugal will be watching with interest.

We shall update this story with exit polls and the eventual result as it happens.
