    You fought the war so that we could enjoy freedom from tyranny.
    You endured the years of rationing so that we could enjoy years of plenty.
    And you built the welfare state so that we could enjoy decades of universal healthcare.

    Cameron in his speech “An invitation to older people”

  2. judy says:

    And in the Budget to come, and in the years ahead.
    We. This Party. This Government. This Chancellor. We are all going to be on your side.

    George Osborne March 5th 2011

  3. judy says:

    Everything we do – from pensions to unemployment and disability benefits – everything we do is about seeing lives transformed…The destination is making sure everyone has a life they can be proud of…supporting themselves, and their families, if possible, and if it’s not possible, then receiving the support they need, with dignity and kindness and respect.

    Ian Duncan Smith March 6th 2011

  4. J says:

    I think There Is No Alternative is the most insidious one. It has a totalitarian air to it and for some reason if you say it often enough people start to believe it. Incidentally, I think we should all be making lists of phrases Labour uses to wimp out of opposing cuts.
