In response to Paul T Horgan: Socialist-speak – your updated guide,
‘Investment’ = borrowing.
‘For the future’ = we only care about the now and gettin’ elected.
‘For the many’ = not on your nelly, comrade.
‘Let me be clear’ = I’m going to lie thru’ my teeth.
‘man made global warming’ = the method and excuse to tax the living bejabbers out of all sinners and ye proles.
‘Free’ = somebody else is going to pay for it whether they like it or not.
‘strong and stable’ = weak and indecisive
‘leave means leave’ = leave means remain
‘die in a ditch’ = ‘He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day.’

‘I am very clear that . . .’ Yes, and some of us see through you. I remember the Cameron loon using that expression rather a lot.

Just one penny more on your tax bill = sorry, I forgot to clarify that it’s one penny for every pound. So actually rather a lot of pennies. That will go the same way as all the previous pennies, i.e. making no difference whatsoever.
