cos he is a wanker.

Well I agree with you about Osbourne (although not about voting to leave) but if you won't vote Tory or Labour who are you going for?

I won't vote Lib Dem after the way they sold their voters out to the Tories. I won't vote Tory and I was furious with Blair, Brown and Millipede so I voted Green in the last election.

Just don't vote UKIP.

To be fair, although I agree Osbourne is an arsehole those cuts were overseen and planned by Ian Duncan Smith who is in the leave camp.

EU funding provides a fair chunk of local funding and facilities also I would be very concerned about the further erosion of the rights of disabled people if UK governments were left unchecked.

Leave campaign is funded by super rich who have previously suggested paying to access NHS etc.

Leave are the worst liars in this campaign by miles.

Good luck going along with Iain Duncan Smith then!
You do realise that the Tory Party Brexiters have also been responsible for royally shafting the poor and disabled

Also, are you aware that the Referendum goes well beyond party politics? I'm sorry, but your OP seems to demonstrate very little awareness of the issue.

twofingerstoGideon Tue 14-Jun-16 16:53:42

I see Whirlwind got there while I was still drafting!

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Tue 14-Jun-16 16:56:23

The Tories don't give a shit about the Referendum - it's all a power battle.

If it's a Brexit Cameron and Gideon will lose their jobs, Bojo, Gove et all will see running the conservatives, and the UK will have the most right wing government in forever.

With you up to the bit about voting for ANY party except his and Labour.

Having the wonderful property of not being those particular Twats, does not magically make another party NotTwats.

I genuinely fear that we're going to vote in some GreatBigCuntingTwats really very soon, formed specially to hoover up the none-of-the-above vote from people too fed up to care, and too tired to read the smallprint.

Please, if you vote for change - check the change is the one you actually want.

Of course the most vulnerable will be most badly hit by a decision to leave. They could potentially lose any protection the EU gives them in the form of disability and employment rights. Any price rises will have a disproportionate effect on those with the lowest incomes. As several have said already, a significant number of the Vote Leave campaign have publicly stated their interest in greater private sector involvement in the health care.

The Vote Remain campaign has broad cross party support, it's just that the Bojo/Gove sponsored leave campaign has brought out the Tory faithful in an effort to protect their own jobs.

I suggest you read A Guide For Voters by Electoral Reform.

Er IDS was cheered on by Osborne who wanted deeper cuts. Let's not try and dump it all on IDS!! They were and are one Tory party wanting to shaft the poor.

Look, I hate the guy but on this particular point he is correct.
Brexit = likely economic disaster=
Of course it will hit the poorest the hardest

bialystockandbloom Tue 14-Jun-16 17:30:45

Yes you're right about Osbourne, but that doesn't mean the alternative, outside the EU, would be better. Two wrongs don't make a right.

The direction of domestic policy (eg welfare cuts, which was purely domestic) is up to the government in this country. The vote for leave/remain should be above current government policy.

namechangeparents Tue 14-Jun-16 17:49:51

He's being hypocritical in the extreme, but he is right. Employment rights will be the first to go. I predict that the very first law to be repealed after we leave the EU will relate to the Working Time Directive.

Also those of you whose employer has been taken over and you've kept your job and existing terms and conditions - that's EU law.

And did you know (just saw this in a Bar Council document) that 50% of our trade is with the EU? I had no idea it was quite that high. Seriously people, are you going to vote to lose this?

And we have no trade negotiators of our own, we got rid of them to rely on EU ones, so when we come to negotiate with China etc we won't have the first idea.

But Osborne is not among my favourite people.

Yet you're still voting to leave? You're taking a very serious domestic issue that needs dealing with via domestic governmental policy and sticking it to the Man by deliberately voting against them, when this will only make the very serious domestic issue worse?

Cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Yes. He's cunt. But I won't vote Leave to spite him on domestic issues.

I felt the same yesterday when that clown Brown came out yesterday in support of "in" The so called prudent chancellor, who robbed my pension, overspent, destroyed our economy and sold the nations gold at a rock bottom price. Despite that, I'm still "in" though.

Voting Leave is very likely to cause an economic downturn, certainly in the short term and medium term. How do the Tories react to an economic downturn / recession? They tend to adopt austerity measures and make swingeing cuts to essential social services. Given we are guaranteed to have at least another 4 years of Tory government ahead of us, whatever the outcome of the referendum, it would seem suicidal to vote leave, especially if you are among the poorer and more disadvantaged members of society.

Voting Leave? You're quite mad!

Audeca Tue 14-Jun-16 18:18:49

how the HELL can he say (yesterday on news) if we leave the EU that the poor and vulnerable will be the most affected????????????????????

Because they are the ones who will suffer the most when lots of employment laws are ripped up by Gove et al.

See this article for a good example of what we will lose:

I then took the case of the Eastbourne Dustmen to the European Court of Justice and the European Commission. I have to say those Brussels “bureaucrats” were a damn sight easier to deal with than Britain’s Tories. “Your government has broken the law,” said the European Commissioner for Employment and Social Affairs. “We will take action to protect British workers rights”, she said. “Why should British workers alone not enjoy the social protection of the rest of Europe?”.

The poor will also have less of a financial cushion for when things go tits up after a Brexit vote.

And if you think the financial consequences are an exaggeration then just consider that Britain's largest companies have seen £98bn billion wiped off their value in a four days solely on the back of opinion polls, the BoE had to pump £2.5 billion into the banks today and investors are now so spooked that they are paying the German government for the privilege of lending it money.

And this is just an hors-d'oeuvre compared to what will happen after an actual Brexit vote.

Well, I'm pretty sure he hasnt reached hell yet, so I guessing he could.

WreckingBallsInsideMyHead Tue 14-Jun-16 18:23:52

The poor and vulnerable are always hardest hit by any difficult political choices

BombadierFritz Tue 14-Jun-16 18:29:20

He is a dickhead. Too late to panic now gideon. Your party has caused all this mayhem. Twats.

"how the HELL can he say (yesterday on news) if we leave the EU that the poor and vulnerable will be the most affected????????????????????"

Because they will be.

callherwillow Tue 14-Jun-16 18:39:02

Yes, wrecking

I feel Brexit is ultimately better for the working class, hence support in those areas.

BertrandRussell Tue 14-Jun-16 18:44:08

"I feel Brexit is ultimately better for the working class, hence support in those areas."

The "working classes" will be disproportionately affected by the watering down of employment legislation which will inevitably follow Brexit.
