So far the only game in town, rhetorically speaking opposing the coalition programme has been the various groups of "students" chucking rocks at police because someone took their weed money away, "students" chucking rocks at police becauce someone suggested they might actually PAY for services used (unless they can't....), "anarchists" (in practice the same people as the "students") who just love to chuck rocks at the police, and the TUC who are screaming that their public sector workers might have to work for thier obscene salaries at the public expense instead of going sick for 20 years before retiring on a full tax-payer funded pension. Allied to these is the anti-business UK Uncut, who think that companies pay tax (rather than people) and these routinely aviod tax, and should be extorted into paying more than they owe.
These people are ignorant, stupid, selfish, nihilistic cunts.
A majority of people in the UK disagree with the mouthbreathers described above and are persuaded that whilst the UK COULD continue to fund diversity outreach coordinators' ethnic lesbian dance & spirituality workshops for Somalian single mothers, by continuing to borrow money, we'd be fucking stupid to do so. Instead it is proposed by the coalition to bring spending down to the (still extravagent) 2007/8 levels and take 5 years to do so.
There are people, of whom I am one, who think the coalition's programme goes nowhere near far or fast enough. Unlike the the assorted window-lickers in the NUS, UKUncut and the TUC, most of us are polite, reasonable and non-violent. (shut up, I said MOST). So, the aim of the Rally against debt is to point out that the Left-wing extremists do not represent "the people", who think (broadly) saddling our grandchildren not yet born with thousands of pounds of debt is immoral and unjust, and that taxes and state spending are already far too high.
A well mannered, polite rally for civilised people who don't wish to see their hard earned money being spent on pointless government initiatives and instead would like government spending to actually fall and our national debt to be cut. It's a facebook event, and the likely date is 14th May, 11am, in central London.
We don't think that it's fair for us to continue borrowing money to live a lifestyle that we simply can't afford - burdening our children with unnecessary debt that they will have to pay back.So there you have it. The productive, tax-paying section of society's response to UK Uncut. Let's be polite, leave no litter and charm the socks off everyone. I however am a realistic bastard. Mr Osborne! Instead of forcing Vodafone, Topshop or Boots to fire productive, tax-contributing people in order to pay taxes they don't owe, we'd like a tax-cut, please. Fire some of the 200,000 civil servant tax-sponges hired unnecessarily by Labour for whom I've been paying for 10 years.
Any visits to Fortnum and Mason's by protestors will only be to marvel at their selection of quality goods and perhaps make the occasional purchase.
Bonfires will be strictly forbidden: it's out of season anyway
Trips to see Vodafone and other high street chains will result in congratulations to the company for providing jobs and growth in the UK.
This is only a planning group at the moment and all subject to change.
