Obvoluting observations...

England is Trafalgar Day
An apple a is Apple Day
Sometimes what appears bad or uninviting is in fact the best course: despite fruit not being a usual impulse-buy or particularly "exciting" - especially among children - they are so good for us in many ways.

Sometimes our greatest defences don't at first appear as such: interestingly, after the Battle of Trafalgar the opposition declared that "The English fleet is annihilated"! Such is propaganda after such a decisive action.

Update: Oh, by the way, just in case you missed the parallels: overall spending by the UK government over the period of this parliament will fall - as predicted - but only by maybe a whole 3% in real terms (at worst). This is the same level of spending as in why all the hyperbole, lies and abuse?

Some might say George Osborne should have gone further.

Update 2: say it again, loud and clear: For the avoidance of doubt, Repeat after me: "total public spending (Total Managed Expenditure) in 2014-15 will be higher in real terms than in 2008-09". How do they get away with this? "Even after these spending cuts, total public spending ... will be higher ". By any real world definition, these cannot be cuts." [EU Referendum]

Update 3: Just in case some dumb fuck hasn't got it: then please remember where the deficit came from [please]

"How do they get away with this?"

By raising taxes, it was in the budget but nobody bothered to read it! Aarrgghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

The left lies whilst the right sits on its hands and crosses its fingers.
