On Politics Home we find Liam Byrne castigating the Coalition over the decision to close Remploy factories making, he claims, 1,500 disabled people unemployed - a decision Byrne calls "callous".
Was it not callous of Byrne, as a member of the last governing party, to have been complicit in the mismanagement of the country's wealth whereby the coffers were left empty? Was it not callous of Byrne, as a member of the last governing party, to have been complicit in the decision to allow unlimited immigration for electoral gain? Come to that, is it not callous of politicians, having made a mess of things, to leave 'funny' notes for their successors.
In fairness it is of course correct to admit that Byrne is right in that whilst the Coalition continue to subsidise people in foreign lands through overseas aid at the expense of their own, the Coalition decision in respect of Remploy is callous - although I have to also admit that sermons about callousness given by hypocrites are extremely hard to swallow.
