None of these for me thanks

This is one of the reasons landlords don’t allow cats.  I still maintain they do more damage than dogs.

Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

David Cameron promises to reduce benefits to get people off their arses

David Cameron is seeking to show a clear difference between his party and the opposition parties and is moving to reduce the levels of benefits.

He has done it once before and it was remarkably successful….now he is set to reduce the benefits cap even further.

David Cameron will reduce the annual benefits cap to ÂŁ23,000 as the first act of a new Conservative Government, the Prime Minister has pledged in an interview with The Telegraph.

The move follows the “stampede to the job centre” caused by the original introduction of the ÂŁ26,000 benefits cap which was heavily opposed by Labour and will form one of the key battlegrounds of the general election campaign.

In an interview to mark 100 days until the general election, Mr Cameron said that his reform of the welfare system is a “deeply progressive programme” that is “changing people’s lives”.

The policy will pay for thee million apprenticeships and everyone in Britain is given “the chance to make the most of their God-given talents”, the Prime Minister said.

Mr Cameron said that the promise of an immediate law after May’s election “tells you everything you need to know about our values”.   Read more »

The Green Party in the UK are “spiteful, malicious toddlers”

The Green party are the same the world over.

Their members are well meaning if somewhat deluded, but the politicians and parties themselves are crazy lunatics who have blood on their hands through their disastrous policies.

The Green party is having a bit of a surge in the UK at the moment and they are the real danger rather than the UKIP.

People are starting to wake up.

Reading the depressing news from Greece this morning, most Britons would be forgiven for imagining: “Couldn’t happen here.” A not-terribly-post-Communist politician is about to become prime minister, by promising that which is both arithmetically and politically impossible.

Well: beware Greeks bearing nonsense on stilts. Couldn’t happen here? Look again. Britain already elects Green Party representatives who can make Syriza seem like the thoughtful mainstream. Welcome to the city of Brighton and Hove, where the Green Party has been in power since the 2011 council elections.

[…]

Syriza’s leader named his son in honour of Che Guevara? That’s nothing. Here’s Ben Duncan, at the time the Green Party councillor for Queen’s Park ward, on June 28 last year, tweeting about a memorial to the Armed Forces: “Armed Forces Day has certainly brought the hired killers onto the streets of #Brighton today. Hard to explain to my son!”

It certainly would be hard to explain to a son why he shouldn’t spit in such a father’s face, but I don’t think that was Mr Duncan’s suggestion. The local Green Party asked him to resign as a Green, or something – they have no formal whipping system – but he remains a councillor, and, as far as I can tell, continues to “work” for Green MEP Jean Lambert for which we – the taxpaying “we” – pay him something like thirty grand a year.

Brighton voters will have been less surprised than most, then, to hear Natalie Bennett, the Greens’ national leader, rhapsodising over her plans to convert the Army into some sort of counselling service.

That’s the thing about the Greens. They react in horror when one of their footsoldiers is caught being explicit over an idea – soldiers=killers, for example – to which their national policy is hardly antithetical. The only substantive difference I can see between Duncan and Bennett is that he was caught sneering, while she’s still allowed to pretend the drivel in her manifesto is just light-hearted, and “fresh and new”, as she put it at the weekend.
