Why the cuts to the poorest if we are supposed to have a booming economy?

The current energy kerfuffle had me thinking with regards to the statements that the Government keeps putting out, and that is as a country we are booming outside of the EU and that Great Britain PLC is open for business. We have had constant reminders of the trade contracts that the now Foreign Secretary LizContinue reading “Why the cuts to the poorest if we are supposed to have a booming economy?”

The Tory Party has hit a low they cannot escape from….

Do you know I never once felt ashamed to have voted Conservative, until now. They have voted to suspend the triple lock for this year, due to what they say would have been an unfair increase. Unfair to who? The pensioners on the old rate of £139.60 or the new rate of £179.60?. Instead ofContinue reading “The Tory Party has hit a low they cannot escape from….”

Will the Government shake up work…..

In a short answer NO…… Boris is just simply moving the deckchairs around on the Titanic so to speak. As a former Conservative voter this is really hard for me to write as I always believed in the Conservative party but what a bunch of wet drips we have in. Boris thinks he can clownContinue reading “Will the Government shake up work…..”

The death of this hero is Britain’s shame….

An Afghan sniper trained by the British military known as Noor was executed in front of his wife and young family in Afghanistan this week. The fact that we did not get this fine young man and his family out is an outrage. He came to our aid when we needed it so where wasContinue reading “The death of this hero is Britain’s shame….”

GP Practices being sold to American Health Insurance Giant Centene.

It seems that our point of contact GP and health service are slowly being sold to an American Health Insurance Giant called Centene. This is quite a worrying situation as if this is done wholesale then we will in the end see a time where we are paying to see the GP, and where 70Continue reading “GP Practices being sold to American Health Insurance Giant Centene.”

Check your MPs voting record….we know now MPs lie even in manifestos…..

The vote that has taken place today where the working population including working pensioners have been told to pay more, having been voted through by the Conservatives, got me thinking what are we and where are we at in the political drama, and the sad conclusion is we are nowhere but there is a solutionContinue reading “Check your MPs voting record….we know now MPs lie even in manifestos…..”

Conservative Promises have more holes in them than a sieve….

I never thought that I would be writing to say how worthless Conservative promises are. but they should now be called the Sieve Party….due to the holes in their election manifesto and promises.

It now seems inevitable that the Chancellor Rishi Sunak is going to suspend the Triple Lock Guarantee that was in the manifesto and promised to the pensioners. They say temporarily but this is a long dark road to cancelling it, as if you can do it once then you can do it again. This isContinue reading “Cancelling or suspending the triple lock will cost the Tory party much more.”

Warrington Borough Council have loaned £201 million of taxpayers money to a Billionaire.

Seems to Leader of the Council Russ Bowden and the majority Labour council that £1.6 billion is not enough of a debt for us in Warrington, and they have now loaned £201 million to a man who has a personal wealth of £1.9 billion pounds. They have loaned the man who owns the Hut GroupContinue reading “Warrington Borough Council have loaned £201 million of taxpayers money to a Billionaire.”
