With a new Prime Minister to be announced today (Mon 5th Sept 2022), we’ll start a fresh thread for all the discussion, and also use this one for any other Westminster/Politics related stuff going forward.

The old thread is now locked as Boris and his Government are replaced.

If you are quoting from a website, please add a link to back it up. (Click on ‘Links’ below the text box and you should be able to post them in the little box, we’ve added one to this post as an example!) - Posts without a link to back up the discussion may be removed.

Thanks.

If lockdown was worth it is a different argument Laffy. All the conspiracy stuff has turned out to be, unsurprisingly, total rubbish.

We will never know because we got a vaccine.It was all about protecting the NHS from meltdown and it worked-but at what cost?

All the covid stuff turned out to be nonsense though didn't it. I thought we were all supposed to be either dead or living under covid passport enslavement by now? That seems to have gone very quiet.

BBC News today..
"Shelling the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is a Russian tactic aimed at disrupting power supplies to Ukrainians, an official in Kyiv alleges.

Yuriy Sak says strikes on the plant over the weekend amount to a "genocidal campaign to freeze Ukrainians to death, to deprive Ukrainians of electricity".

Now why if you are in control of the nuclear plant as the Russians are why would they shell it...?? and if you wanted to switch the power off surely you would just turn the off switch rather than shell it... not very objective reporting... but the BBC gave that up years ago...


Do you/anyone believe anything that comes out on this anymore - I don’t!

Everyone jumped to conclusions the Russians had bombed Poland. Russians denied it and everyone said bollocks and look what happened.

With covid and this I don’t believe I single thing coming from the TV box.

I remember a few on here slaughtering the likes of me and MRF going out on our bikes in the lockdown era-to stay fit and healthy.ALL political parties wanted the lockdown-Labour wanted it even harder!

We are where we are-I think most of us knew deep down that taking 18 months off needed funding and here we are

So it’s my fault the country knackered This extract is from Laffys Bible (The Daily Mail) Today

Some have called it the Big Lie-Down, others the Great Retirement. Whatever the catchphrase, since the pandemic there has been an increase in 'economic inactivity' – the term to describe people who are not included in the unemployment figures but who are not working either, including thousands of over-50s.

The phenomenon is doing so much harm to the economy that in the Budget, the Chancellor announced a review into why so many Britons are shunning work.


I am not shunning work and not claiming any benefits !!!! it’s none of their business that I’ve worked hard made a good living paid into pensions for 37 years and retired at 55 The same old Tory’s want you to work till you drop like our fore fathers did !!!!!!



Enjoy your retirement Taffy, you've earned it. The obvious problem is the covid shut down and furlough. It was all paid for from the governments magic money tree. People now think they are entitled and want to cling on the past. Noted, there are now more people dying with non covid illness than should be due to being ignored by the NHS and doctors during the pandemic.
Back to shelling nuclear plants Marko. Genius.

Ftse the dog of international stock exchanges, penny shares even worse, UK bond markets virtually closed due to the lack of faith in the economy, commercial property yielding a third of inflation, savings being eroded by hyper inflation and 60% tax on the way. But the tories are doing great!! Follow me for more top investment advice! I'm over here in the dark.

I hope people are looking at gold. Up 50%, predicted to go another 33%. Mining companies looking a good sector.

The largest purchasers currently, of gold, are European centre banks. As the euro isn't gold backed its not hard to see what they expect

I was working at a consultants house when he came back from a meeting they had been invited to regarding the new cic and he said put this in your diary it's not going to be fit for purpose. There are loads of them too. There are also Heads at Councils on a bigger salary than the PM.
As for inflation look at Germany, America and even Japan are in the mire .

What does it matter how much we owe.

£3 trillion or £6 trillion? It’s not as if we’ll ever have to pay it back. :D

We keep hearing how the tories have been in power for 12 years and how we must not leave huge debts for our grandchildren.

It is not long ago we finished paying for WW2.

The Blair government set a load of traps to make it hard for the incumbent government to succeed.

Take the Cumberland Infirmary, first PFI hospital opened by Blair in 2000, original cost 87 million, under PFI the final cost is going to be

in the region of 1 billion, 22 years after it was built the first payment out of their budget the NHS trust has to pay every year is tens of

millions to the PFI company,which will continue for at least another 5 to 10 years and to make matters worse the place is a major fire risk.

His wife, a human rights lawyer got him to put in legislation that has made it almost impossible to send back illegal immigrants,

hence the backlog.

As for the NHS it was under the last Labour government that said CEO's in the public sector had to paid the same as those in the

private sector to attract them. Some of them on double the money of our PM.

When there are any issues with the NHS it is always the government that gets the blame, these CEO's get away scot free, in the private

sector they would be sacked , not allowed to retire on a massive pension.

Labour say they have a serious fiscal plan and are now attacking Raab for his bullying.

Just google Liam Byrne.



Unbelievable it’s all Labours fault !!!!!!!!!

So the tories chose to go into lockdown. A decision made with no scientific evidence ;and a decision not made by countries like Japan. Now we are bankrupt the tories are not to blame, its all due to the cost of lockdown!!

This ignoring the fact that Britain is the only economy in the top 10 in the world not to fully recover from the effect!

The biggest drop in living standards in 50 years, twice!

Bang on CCU , and in Scotland the SNP lot use covid to blame things when they have a problem they can't or won't answer. But the finances are entirely down to the Tories, no mention of the covid / furlough costs to repay or the fact most countries are in the same boat or worse . 🤔🤔

Correct-leaving the likes of Marko to snipe from the fringes.The pandemic cost is catastrophic-and very few people said don’t close down.

As for Tory Brexit Taffy, it was a public vote, a free vote-we have yet to see the long term benefit but as someone who wants to invest in manufacturing in the U.K., and not rely on cheap, distressed offshore supply chains, it’s very good news.That’s why I voted for it-if we aspire to make real things, not the green tosh favoured by politicians, we need a new supply base in the U.K.
