Boris & Rishi Focusing on Jobs Package

As the world is getting back to business where it can and the furlough measures recede, the jobs that are lost will become apparent. UK youth unemployment will likely be in the region of 30% if the hospitality sector stays closed. Which is why at PMQs when Boris was asked by Bolsover MP Mark Fletcher about a green jobs package he replied saying there were going to be multiple packages. Guido understands there will be a set-piece jobs speech from Boris before the fiscal statement expected in July…

There has been some speculation about increased sugar taxes to fund a Covid-inspired anti-obesity drive. Which would be an about turn by Boris on sin taxes, from a man who famously likes to have his cake. With government borrowing almost interest free, the case for infrastructure spending is more arguable, taxpayers funding the retraining of workers laid off when the furlough scheme ends, to work on the huge extra infrastructure spending planned makes sense. We have had a big state response to the pandemic – wags joking that we are having a taste of communism, with everyone paid by the state and queues for food, are only half joking – Guido suspects we are going to see a big state, post-pandemic government agenda. Boris fancies himself as a builder; HS2, “Boris Island”, bridges across the Thames and the Irish Sea.

What makes no sense is Cummings’ obsession with government funding for British-based technology firms. This will prove a waste of taxpayers’ money which should be left to the venture capital’s risk takers and tech entrepreneurs. The same entrepreneurs incidentally that Rishi whacked in the last budget. The Government would do better by not picking winners, and instead ushering in startup investment from the private sector. They could start by lifting the pension fee cap for investments, injecting more money into start ups as well as bringing bigger potential returns to pensioners…

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…
