The Slaying of TINA , "She Who must be obeyed". Election 2017 UK.



Neoliberalism shifted the political debate into a new orbit where a core belief was ´´Free Markets´´ and a new economics voodoo was ushered in and given the status of received truth, Supply-side Economics and the Chicago Boys, Freidman Hayek and Dr Alan Waters.They preeched the gospel to which there was no alternative. ´´TINA´´. This new orbit dawned and was marked by was marked By Mrs Thatcher's election in 1979 and Ronald Reagan in 1980 along with the Pinochet Coup in Chile and support from the USA and UK for  Pinochet's Neo-Liberal Fascist regime in Chile. Nascent Neo-Liberal Fascism was thus born in 1973 and in 2017 the British Election has the opportunity to reject full-blown Neo-Liberal Fascism under Theresa May, Queen TINA´s heiress.

Queen Tina was to be worshipped and never questioned indeed TINA was and is "She who must be obeyed". Unlike the Dionysian pair or Matrifocal societies TINA was not a feminine Deity but archly patriarchal, cold and  bitter above all a vengeful spitefull god, TINAs Noble lie was the Lie of Austerity. A lie Mrs May espouses and which was espoused in 2015 by all 3 Neo-Liberal sects of the TINA religion.




Overview[edit]

Thatcherism attempts to promote low inflation, the small state, and free markets through tight control of the money supplyprivatisation and constraints on the labour movement. It is often compared with Reaganomics in the United States, Economic Rationalism in Australia and Rogernomics in New Zealand and as a key part of the worldwide economic liberal movement. Nigel Lawson, Thatcher's Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1983 to 1989, listed the Thatcherite ideals as "free markets, financial discipline, firm control over public expenditure, tax cuts, nationalism, 'Victorian values' (of the Samuel Smiles self-help variety), privatisation and a dash of populism".[3]
Thatcherism is thus often compared to neoliberalismMilton Friedman said that "the thing that people do not recognise is that Margaret Thatcher is not in terms of belief a Tory. She is a nineteenth-century Liberal."[5] Thatcher herself stated in 1983: "I would not mind betting that if Mr Gladstone were alive today he would apply to join the Conservative Party".[6] In the 1996 Keith Joseph memorial lecture Thatcher argued that "The kind of Conservatism which he and I ... favoured would be best described as 'liberal', in the old-fashioned sense. And I mean the liberalism of Mr Gladstone, not of the latter day collectivists".[7] However, Thatcher once told Friedrich Hayek: "I know you want me to become a Whig; no, I am a Tory". Hayek believed "she has felt this very clearly".[8]
But the relationship between Thatcherism and liberalism is complicated. Thatcher's former Defence Secretary John Nott claimed that "it is a complete misreading of her beliefs to depict her as a nineteenth-century Liberal".[9] As Ellen Meiksins Wood has argued, Thatcherite capitalism was compatible with traditional British political institutions. As Prime Minister, Thatcher did not challenge ancient institutions such as the monarchy or the House of Lords, but some of the most recent additions: such as the trade unions.[10] Indeed, many leading Thatcherites, including Thatcher herself, went on to join the House of Lords: an honour which Gladstone, for instance, had declined.[11]

Thinkers closely associated with Thatcherism include Keith JosephEnoch Powell, Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. In an interview with Simon Heffer in 1996 Thatcher stated that the two greatest influences on her as Conservative leader had been Joseph and Powell, who were both "very great men".[12]

facts are not important to religious
15:46
ideologies and neoliberalism is a
15:50
religious ideology I suggest that this
15:55
independent expert on the BBC is a
15:58
priest of neo- liberal ideology and what
16:02
we actually see is that in the current
16:04
constitution of the British state and
16:07
and the European state and  really
16:11
within the Washington Consensus is
16:14
actually, a religious doctrine embedded
16:20

in government 









Theresa May launched her party's general election manifesto with promises of more money for services such as the NHS and schools, but where is the money coming from?


so after weeks of hearing about
39:52
strong and stable leadership we finally
39:54
got some details to look at but unlike
39:56
labour the Liberal Democrats the
39:58
Conservatives haven´t so far released
40:00
their overall costings in a single table
40:02
so we're still working on those there
40:04
are some headline numbers though the
40:06
Tories now so they plan to balance the
40:08
budget a little later by 2025 and they
40:11
say they plan to increase NHS
40:13
spending by a minimum of 8 billion in
40:15
real terms over the next five years so
40:18
let's just look at a few more specific
40:20
policies the social care changes we've
40:23
already heard about they mean that tens of
40:25
thousands more families have to pay to
40:27
social care provided at home but
40:29
everyone will retain at least one
40:31
hundred thousand pounds of their savings
40:34
and assets including value in the family
40:36
home it's a policy designed to take
40:38
account of the fact that we are living
40:40
longer the conservatives also want to raise
40:43
money by means testing the winter fuel
40:45
allowance ensuring that payments go only
40:48
to the least wealthy pensioners the scheme will
40:51
cost about 3 billion pounds a year at
40:53
the moment means testing it could save
40:55
about half of that one revenue-raising
40:58
measure that both labor and the Lib dems have promised
41:01
of course is an increase in
41:03
income tax not the Torys

Paul Johnson - Institute For Fiscal Studies - IFS


(TALKING HEAD) ´´ you look at this
41:07
manifesto and whilst there is
41:09
little actually promised not to increase
41:11
income tax and national insurance and so on
41:14
what you've got is a pretty modest set
41:16
of proposals which probably aren't going
41:18
to require terribly much
41:20
in the way of tax increases´´

one big conservative
41:25
promise in the Cameron years was the
41:27
triple lock on pensions under which the
41:29
state pension rises by the rate of
41:31
inflation average earnings or 2.5%
41:33
percent whichever is the highest Theresa May Wants
41:36

to scrap that losing
41:38
the two point 5 percent guarantee that
41:41
would give the government more
41:42
flexibility but it is impossible to say
41:45
how much money it might save

moving to
41:48
education the conservatives want to boost
41:49
school funding by 4 billion pounds over
41:52
the course of the next parliament one of
41:54
the ways they plan to raise that money is
41:56
to scrap universal free school lunches for
41:59
infants replacing them with much cheaper
42:01
free school breakfasts in primary
42:03
schools and again the manifesto contains
42:06
no precise costings for this

immigration
42:09
policy also looms large in conservative
42:11
plans they plan to double from 1,000 to
42:14
2,000 pounds the amount companies have
42:16
to pay to import high-skilled workers
42:19
from outside the EU we don´t really know
42:22
how much that might raise the conservatives
42:24
have also reaffirmed their target of
42:27
cutting overall net migration to less
42:29
than 100,000 per year but there will be
42:32
a cost involved the independant office for
42:35
Budget Responsibility have estimated
42:37
that it could cost 5.9 billion pounds
42:40
to cut annual net migration from about
42:43
two hundred seventy three thousand now
42:44
to 185-thousand by 2021 thats because of
42:49
things like a lower tax take and a
42:51
higher proportion of non-working
42:53
people in the overall population and
42:56
that's still a long way short of the
42:58
100,000 target so it's something that
43:01
will have to be taken into account in
43:03
the debate to come and the emphasis on
43:05
immigration is a reminder that this is
43:07
an election taking place in a shadow of
43:10
the looming brexit negotiations

(David David Speech Brexit.)
the
43:13
negotiations are about to begin with the
43:15
European Union won't be easy they will be
43:19
challenging and at times they'll be tough
43:23
in Theresa May
43:26
Britain has a prime minister with the
43:27
strength to lead Britain through these
43:29
negotiations and make a success for the
43:32
future”

Narrator.
but the outcome of those
43:35
negotiations over the next two years is
43:37
deeply uncertain at the moment the
43:39
manifesto reasserts that the Conservatives
43:41
think no deal is better
43:44
than a bad deal so the union
43:46
negotiations will probably be more than
43:48
anything else in the next parliament to
43:50
determine the health of the British
43:51
economy and the chances for any
43:53
political party to put their promises
43:56
into practice





so that was the conservative
44:06
reality check so-called reality check
44:10
and here is the so-called labor
44:13
manifesto reality check



Jeremy Corbyn unveiled pledges costing £48.6bn in his party's election manifesto. Reality Check correspondent Chris Morris crunches the numbers.




it's finally
44:16
been published officially and we've been
44:18
crunching through the numbers here so
44:20
where does the labor say the money is
44:22
coming from well it estimates that an extra
44:24
tax rate of forty eight point six
44:26
million pounds let's break that down a
44:28
little income tax first higher earners
44:31
will pay more and we're talking about
44:33
roughly the top four to five percent of
44:35
earners we reckon about 1.2 million
44:38
people earnings above eighty thousand
44:40
pounds will be taxed at forty five
44:42
percent the new fifty percent rate on
44:44
earnings above one hundred and twenty
44:46
three thousand
44:47
labour says this will raise six point
44:49
four billion per year with a biggest
44:52
increase in tax take according to labours plans
44:54
will come from an increasing corporation
44:56
tax a tax on business profits it's
44:59
currently 19 percent and labour plans to
45:01
increase that rate to 26 percent by 2021
45:05
once that's done labour says it´s
45:07
corporation tax plans will raise an extra nineteen
45:10
point four billion per year one really
45:13
important thing though that Labour itself
45:16
acknowledges is that companies and
45:18
individuals change their behavior when tax
45:20
rates change you also have to take
45:22
account the health of the overall
45:23
economy where raising tax rates does not
45:26
always increase the overall tax take as
45:29
much as predicted there are other
45:31
measures to raise revenue for example a
45:33
levy on what Labour calls excessive
45:35
pay
45:35
starting with 2.5 percent levy paid
45:38
by employees on pay packages over
45:41
330,000 pounds there will also be VAT on private
45:44
school fees then the manifesto says 6.5
45:47
billion pounds will be raised with an aggressive
45:50
program to crack down on tax avoidance
45:53
now political parties always say they'll
45:55
do that and it can be done but it's a
45:58
pretty inexact science overall though
46:00
labour says it can finance all its
46:02
current spending plans through changes in the tax
46:05
system forty eight point six billion out
46:08
    1. billion in so does that add up

Paul Johnson - Institute For Fiscal Studies - IFS



      (TALKING HEAD SAME AS TORY video.)and
46:11
they're suggesting a fifty billion pound
46:13
increase in tax which if it were to
46:16
be implemented by the way would take the
46:18
tax burden of this country to the highest level
46:20
its been in about seventy years but
46:23
actually I think theres an awful
46:25
lot of uncertainty about whether you
46:26
could actually raise that amount of tax
46:29
they're talking about very very large
46:30
increases in taxes on companies which
46:33
would likely reduce the amount of
46:35
investment that they do so I think the
46:37
actual amount you could get from these policies
46:39
certainly runs into the tens of
46:41
billions but probably doesn't reach
46:42
the fifty billion that labor are
46:45
claiming”

Narrator

so that's tax but there are
46:48
also big plans for investment spending
46:50
all those nationalization plans you've
46:52
heard about water companies the Royal
46:54
Mail and so on labour says it will
46:56
borrow money to pay for future
46:57
investment it's talking about national
47:00
transformation fund of 250 billion pounds
47:03
but there's no detailed costing of
47:06
those nationalization plans in the
47:08
manifesto that will be the source of
47:10
controversy and political debate but
47:13
labor does make one bold promise it
47:15
says it's committed to ensuring that the
47:18
national debt is lower at the end of the
47:20
next parliament than it is today






GENERAL ELECTION 2017 PARALeLlES TO 1951. #CORBYN4PM LABOUR CAN WIN

Atlee won the popular vote in 1951 after clawing back a Tory poll lead of 11,% in late September which was down to 4.5% by mid-October and had evaporated and become a 4.51% surplus over the Tory vote in the final result.




DEMOCRATIC FAULT LINE, SOCIAL DEMOCRACY VS NEOLIBERALISM.



Back in 1986 Tony Benn and Roy Jenkin's ran over the dividing line between the Right wing social democratic wing of the Labour party versus the Democratic socialist wing, the current fault line in British politics is the quarrel between social democracy and neo-liberalism.




The fault line runs across all political parties in Europe including the UK, it is painted as a Nationalism and populism against progressive internationalism But Globalisation is not internationalism it does not hold to any of the tenets of Social Democracy it is effectively anti-democratic.
