"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik

Opinion: Clueless Chloe Defends Cuts.


Chloe Smith, the Conservative Norwich North MP has this afternoon defended the governments announced £82 billion cuts in public services by making this remarkable statement..

“I know people will carefully consider today’s announcements about benefits. I think pensioners locally will welcome a sincere, permanent increase in cold weather payments and the retention of other help for them. I hope Equitable Life victims will also appreciate the sum that has been found for them. People I speak to locally do want the UK back on a sustainable financial footing. We can’t burden future generations with debts we wouldn’t be prepared to pay today”.

Nice one Chloe. The Silver and Essex Rooms closures ring any bells by any chance? The fact that the poorest 10% of the population are going to be potentially living on the streets homeless, a lot of them likely to be pensioners, due to the £8 billion in benefit cuts and rent increases simply passed you by has it?

And as for your comments on future generations not being burdened by debts Chloe, it’s not you or your ideologically motivated party who are going to be paying them is it! It was however your lot who caused it!

Chloe and her ‘pensioners and future generations’ are clearly a class above the rest of us…either that or they’re living on a completely different planet!

You might find Clueless Chloe knocking around Norwich North on Saturday.

“I will be holding special public meetings this Saturday and next to make sure I understand people’s opinions locally about the announcements.”

We do hope it’s in the poorer areas of the city…
