Incredibly Awkward Interview With Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett

C

Natalie Bennett was on LBC with Nick Ferrari to launch the Green Party's manifesto and said they want to build 500,000 social homes. So how would they afford that? Does Ms Bennett even know?

Part of the problem is the greens havent answers but they used to have. The basic income scheme was to be paid for (in the Eighties manifesto) by a tax on Land values. Then when the Poll tax arrived the Land Value taxation was switched to be the Greens alternative to the Poll Tax. But there was no consideration of what is to fund the basic income scheme. So when she is asked she doesnt know because the party has failed to come up with an answer for 25 years!

That was excruciating. I'm glad she's not my accountant. What did she think NF was going to ask? Why did she think she was invited to be interviewed?

One man (or woman) one vote, especially the million green idiots who vote for me.

Greens can piss off. Disband the Army, disband all kind of support for Nato and the UN and disarm everything we have and will stand. Whoever votes for Greens are truly retarded and its not even funny, im not sexist but these women are truly retarded to a point of no return, they think there is peace to be made in this world and they think world peace is gonna be achieved tomorrow as long as our army is gone.

Natalie Bennett is a representative - not the entire Green machine. Ferrari was shown too much respect and, not for the first, he took advantage of his guests eagerness to impress. He was asking tangential questions with ruthless (rude) timing. His tone was "reserved" the only mitigating factor in an otherwise intimidating ambush. £60k seems far fetched? Islington is expensive in terms of property, but Islington Council developed properties in N7 @£80k. The 500k homes would not be built in “one sitting” so there would be increasing revenue (to support ongoing development) as stock numbers increased (so the money for 500k homes isn’t required before construction starts!). How do you think property empires are built after all? Just in this case it should be the British empire!
