There certainly aren't as many fires. But deaths by fire rose 15% after the cuts. And to bring it back to the original discussion Boris swore blind that there wouldn't be equipment cuts then, ba bak, there were. So fairly harsh for the people who lost loved ones.

Deaths by fire have been dropping consistantly for years, 2017-18 being the lowest for a decade.

To be honest Marko, we only want him in because he promised to deliver democracy.

After that is done then we will take it from there.

The likes of Boris and Trump have got all their opponents crapping themselves as to why they are so popular.

Maybe because they call it as they see it, warts and all, which is a breath of fresh air after 30 years of mind numbing political correctness and politicians toeing the party line and being terrified to say anything without running it past a whole host of PR men.

People are wanting a shake up yes and somebody like Boris they can relate to, or laugh with/ at......I just dont know where this is going though. From being a big BJ fan pre referendum and after for a while, I'm not too sure he has the staying power for the big job. And I'm not too sure where the idea that he has been positioning himself for PM has come from or the support, as fellow MPs seem to do him down at every turn.

To have been born Cumbrian
is to have won the lottery of life !

So to summarise Johnson has said he will raise taxes on people earning low salaries so those on 80k can have tax cuts. He will start charging for the NHS. And he will divert money from poorer regions like Cumbria to London. And there are people on here living in Cumbria earning a fraction of 80k who think that is a good idea because Corbyn once shagged Diane Abbott. We are [censored] doomed

I’m beginning to think you are a reincarnation of Michael Foot Marko-he had a great ability to pick random things and put them together but only when you stepped back could you see it was nonsensical.

I have been an advocate of cutting taxes to raise more as you know,
and we already pay for prescriptions.Its amazing that Eire can cut taxes and still be solvent for example.

I haven’t seen anything which suggests cutting budgets in Cumbria to support other initiatives.Cumbria has suffered from many years of Labour rule in my view.

Johnson did a good job in London, unlike that Khan who specialises in pissing people off.

Analysis by the University of Cardiff shows that in areas such as Wales Johnson's tax cuts will benefit 6.6% of the population while Wales will lose £460 m in public funding. So for people who are long term unemployed, on the long term sick and pensioners (about to become pensioners) they are going to get another hammering.
The planned rise also means another £6k in the pocket of MPs so its shameless bribery.

As for, did he do a good job in London. Very mixed. When he came to power London had 4 of the poorest boroughs in England in the deprivation index, when he left there were four. There was a huge rise in inequality and things that depended on his own organisation skills tended to be a disaster, the Olympics he claimed were 90% planned under Livingston whereas the bridge was a horrible waste. As always with the Tories if you look at it from the perspective of a man earning 100k a year he was a success, if you are a man earning 10k he was a shocking disaster.

As ever with Boris he represents the lowest common denominator in politics. While Tories rush to admit drug taking Boris gives us

But as ever Boris Johnson wins this round. In an interview with GQ he said: “I tried [cocaine] ... and I remember it vividly,” but in an interview in 2008 he said: “To say that I have taken cocaine is simply untrue.” This is why he’s right to boast that people like his “plain speaking”.

I think comparing Boris to Trump does Trump a massive massive disservice. Trump is streets ahead. Best thing the Tories could have done was persuade one of the DUP to run for Tory leader. Even id maybe vote for them if they did.

Simply amazing to watch. Boris didn't even turn up, the man who supposedly is going to challenge Europe was too big a coward to even debate his own party members

A survey by YouGov suggests a majority of them (Tory party members) would prefer Brexit took place to a host of scenarios, including 61% in favour of it even if it caused “significant damage to the economy”

Ken Clarke vows to bring down next 'idiot' prime minister over no-deal Brexit

The only thing that came from last nights so-called debate, is confirmation that the BBC has a left wing bias, the whole thing was a sham, with a presentation that was designed to be uncomfortable.

I am surprised they didn't ask them if they'd ever ran over a hedgehog !!!

The Tories undoubtedly have a huge issue with intolerance in their ranks. While we all like a bit of banter Boris Johnson calling foreigners ‘Piccaninnies’, ‘bum boys’ and ‘tartan dwarves’: (Boris Johnson unfit for high office – Angus Robertson) just makes us look like troglodytes in the eyes of the world

Last month, a dossier containing more than 100 allegations of anti-Islam abuse and racism within the Tory party was revealed.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has also called on the Conservatives to respond to allegations that it has not done enough to tackle the problem.

At least the Home Secretary has now ordered an investigation after Boris Johnson was forced to make an apology for comparing Muslim women who wear the niqab to "letter boxes" and "bank robbers".
When its a couple of blokes in the pub it's a part of life but when the future PM shows the mentality of racist 8 year old its symptomatic of the state of our country. He'll be advocating rounding them up and putting them in camps next

I love it, all written by a person who is 100% politically correct.

No comments on Abdullah Patel's Twitter comments Marko ?


"During the debate, Abdullah Patel asked the five candidates their views on Islamophobic rhetoric, and whether they believed words had consequences, saying he had seen first-hand the impact of Islamophobia on his community.

After the Tory candidates delivered their answers, he branded their responses “deluded” and “disappointing” on Twitter, even making a follow up appearance on BBC 5 Live on Wednesday morning.

But his Twitter account had been deleted today after hate-filled posts accused of being anti-Semitic were unearthed.

Another post that blamed women for rape had also been shared from his account."

When are they going to get on with Brexit instead of fannying about with this?

Since we told the EU we were leaving, May called a general election resulting in months of delay in getting started on sorting it out. We then saw March 29 pass by and now they decided to force May out resulting in another delay. They are all going on holiday in August and the party conferences are in September. I can see October 31st becoming another March 29th.

Who you blaming for this Marko, Brexit or those high earning tax dodgers ?

"Ford is set to slash 12,000 jobs in Europe. The automaker, which employs 51,000 people in Europe, will close six plants, with Germany, the UK and Russia the hardest hit. It includes the closure of Ford’s plant in Bridgend, Wales, where 1,700 jobs will be lost. America's second-biggest carmaker announced a revamp of its European strategy in January after its European operations reported a loss of $398m last year."

I read a stat yesterday that confirmed 5pc of the population pay more than 50pc of the tax.That is a first and highlights the anti avoidance legislation issued by Osborne in 2013.Its now virtually impossible to avoid large lumps of tax without spending your income on some other tax deductible item.

Re Ford etc, the problem is EV is going to screw the UK car industry because we build over 2m combustion engines per annum-and EV cars also have much less parts and less servicing.Its starting to unwind as car model production lines typically have a 6 year life.We really need to focus on the next generation of cars urgently.

Why do they deserve to earn so much more than everyone else that they are paying 50pc of the tax in the first place?

That's an income equality problem. If 5pc of people are paying 50pc of tax, then they are earning far too much compared to everyone else to start with.


Not really - you accept as much money as someone is willing to pay you.

I twice left good jobs for jobs that payed less money.

Bit of a gamble you might say but I did it as the prospects were better for experience that would enable me to learn a trade and earn more money.

You shouldn't be ashamed for trying to better yourself and the more money companies wish to pay you the better.

I left London in 1988 where I was earning six figures-25 years old.I had never seen so much money but I was miserable in London.

My new job?A part qualified accountant earning £13,250 pa until I qualified.A risk in the short term and I can tell you it was painful-massive shock for me and the wife.

Why do some people earn much more than others?Because on the whole they take risks with their career paths whilst securing qualifications-that and a whole load of luck that I had in 1998 when I left PWC.

It’s fundamentally wrong to punish people who try to better themselves and their families through heavy taxation.There are some where the salaries and bonuses are ridiculous but there is a sea change in the City just now after the appalling Persimmon bonuses.They took risks with other people’s money-created massive value for the shareholders but not the point.The numbers were obscene

I think the reason the tax take is getting higher is down to a real crackdown on tax avoidance in the last 10 years-its proving very effective.

Some will say we’ll tax them some more.The problem with that strategy is these people are relatively mobile.Taxing punitively doesn’t work-look at what stamp duty hikes are doing to the market-overall take is down and certain housing markets are frozen.

The way to tackle inequality is to reduce tax on the poor-take them out of the system altogether below a much higher amount-say £20k pa
