  • Except nothing much will happen, why not do something now ?

    He’ll make some token gesture, & the Daily Mail will present it as big win for the people of this country.

    Because firstly, the extra funding will be to help people with their winter fuel bills (and it’s not winter yet) and secondly, we need to see whether fuel bills will continue to increase, level out or even start decreasing. The Chancellor has a difficult balancing act - we have a huge debt to pay back.

    Rubbish, the chancellor wasted a vast amount of money on track & trace & dodgy business loans.

    He owns the sh1t situation we now find ourselves.

    Meanwhile his wife was living in Downing Street & not paying UK tax

    He’ll put off a decision that needs to be made now as long as possible & people like you will continue to make excuses for him

  • In London the Gov would be happy to kill the trains and drive everyone back to their cars where most can't afford a new car and then get hit with the ULEZ emission charges at £12 a day.

    Perhaps if you actually looked past the red mist of your hate you may just be able to take a moment to reflect what has happened to the UK and other Nations over the Pandemic, where have you been you should know, even I know


    Firstly our Economy has been badly damaged to say the least, the Government paid lots of workers to stay at home to try and reduce the spread of the Virus, Sunak gave as much help as he could to try and keep businesses in business. Our Economy is going to be damaged again due to the strikes London's economy alone will lose about £50 million this week.


    The Government have had to spend huge amounts of money due to the Pandemic , they also have had to borrow huge amounts of money we are paying billions of pounds just to pay the interest on what they had to borrow,


    The Sunak's are wealthy they have substantial homes , it is normal practice for the Chancellor to live in the flat at No11 Downing Street, the Sunak's redecorated it and paid for the redecoration.


    Sunak's wife is wealthy due to her shares in her Fathers IT business , she was registered as a Non Dom in the UK for tax reasons on her earnings outside of the UK, and earnings generated in the UK is taxed at the going rate Sunak himself was but stopped that when he went into Politics, if you don't know what Non Dom Status is Google is your friend.


    Sunak's wife withdrew not that she had to from the Nom Dom system to protect her husbands due to all the Media nonsense and now pays any and all taxes due here, even when a Non Dom she probably paid more a year that you, being rich is not a crime .


    As for what Sunak is going to do, patients you will have to wait and see, instead of wasting your time trying to guess what he is going to do

  • In London the Gov would be happy to kill the trains and drive everyone back to their cars where most can't afford a new car and then get hit with the ULEZ emission charges at £12 a day


    As for the Congestion Charge and Emission Charge , that is Mayor Khans territory he wants to expand the Emissions Zones to make it London wide for more money, he has put the fares up on buses and the tube ,the Government had to bail him out again with my taxes

  • As it happened I worked throughout the pandemic & at least in the beginning I thought Sunak’s scheme was a good idea ,I do however think it went on too long & just delayed the inevitable failure for some businesses

    Two areas which were poorly conceived. Bounce back loans , I was at that point a self employed contractor, many people around me took loans without ever intending to repay them.

    The result is several £billion in written off loans.

    The biggest & in my view corrupt item was the £47 billion spent on track & trace.

    It didn’t work very well but how on earth did it cost so much ?

    Where did that money go ?

    Quite frankly it stinks !

  • I am retired , all the rest of my family worked through the Pandemic, some of the wife's friends were in the RED Zone wife is not ICU trained so doing other work supporting them


    I am in my 70's worked from the age of 15 to just shy of 69 years of age, I have seen and endured some difficult times but nobody alive in the UK today has ever experienced a full blown Pandemic, and you expect everything to go right and no mistakes made by anyone from the PM downwards , get real


    Are you really that naïve to think professional fraudsters would not take advantage of the situation, or PPE , or duff Test Kits , investigations into some of the shenanigans is on going, trace and track do you really expect Minister's to really understand it in full they have to rely on what they are told and sold by the Tech companies.


    The Government had to rely on the medical experts for their advice on what should be could be done , one thing for certain Boris and the Government had to make some really tough calls , the Vaccine roll out was superb, Stramer and Labour were as safe as houses, any mistakes would not be reflected on them , Boris is in charge nothing to do with us we were upstairs collecting tickets


    The Pandemic cost the economy of London alone £500 Billion, add all the other Cities to that to see the damage done , now the RMT is damaging it some more.


    There will be a full investigation as soon as practicable, then you may get some answers

  • As for the Congestion Charge and Emission Charge , that is Mayor Khans territory he wants to expand the Emissions Zones to make it London wide for more money, he has put the fares up on buses and the tube ,the Government had to bail him out again with my taxes

    True but mayors are part of the government.

    he Vaccine roll out was superb

    Thanks to the NHS not the government and their private contractors. In fact the NHS where called in to sort out the shitshow the government had created.

    Guess who has joined the Picket Line at Wakefield Station Arthur Flipping Scargill

    Now that's hilarious and deserves an emoji. As you know I don't often leave an emoji to posts. I didn't realise he was still alive either.

  • If I remember correctly the NHS GP's included and anyone who was qualified was tasked to give the vaccines , the logistics of delivering the vaccines and fridges was undertaken by the MOD in many cases, they erected the Pop Ups etc they delivered and carried out many millions of doses.

  • Thanks to the NHS not the government and their private contractors. In fact the NHS where called in to sort out the shitshow the government had created..

    I think it is widely acknowledged that the PM was responsible for fast tracking the vaccine and ensuring that it was distributed to our population first.

  • The impression I get is that this industrial action by rail staff has little to do with a wage rise but more to do with bringing parliament down. That's the way Communists achieve a communist state.

  • That is what I have stated from the start its an attempt to bring down the elected Government of the day because Labour keep being rejected by the Voters


    I would never dream of voting Labour too many Champagne Socialists, Commie's and Marxists hiding in their ranks they will only show their true colours if they win a GE

  • And they keep spitting out wokes to undermine our society and values. They are insidiously attempting to overturn our society into some kind of dystopian hell.

  • Here’s the thing , there won’t ever be a proper investigation, it will be a cover up .

    Anything Johnson doesn’t like will be redacted

  • It was announced I want and I suspect many others want that to happen , especially those on the opposition benches, you may have guessed right, or you may have guessed wrongly .
