Boris Johnson and Conservatives may provoke a fierce backlash by cutting the living standard of families already suffering from the squeeze.
Households simply cannot lose nearly £2,000 in spending power without feeling intense pain or plunging into debt.
The Cabinet Ministers increasing taxes on incomes through National Insurance or failing to cool rising prices – particularly soaring fuel bills – are a major part of the problem.
Which side a party belongs to is one of the most fundamental divisions in politics. According to polls, voters believe that the Conservatives are squeezing family budgets too hard. Labour on the other hand proposes well-thought policies to add money to pay packets and slow up price increases.
The working people deserve better from a political party and government that pretends they are on their side, lowering their living standards, while pretending it wants to lift those it has disadvantaged for many years.
Was that a waste?
We are learning how the Conservatives cannot be trusted with taxpayers’ money as they admitted to £8.7billion losses on Covid PPE contracts worth £12.1bn.
Every item that is unusable, inappropriate or overpriced is charged to the British public. This is a shameful waste of money.
Add other unacceptable bills such as the £4.3bn in loans and financial support written off as Covid fraud and the total tops £12bn before other areas are counted – enough to cancel a year’s National Insurance rises or suspend BBC licence fees for nearly four years.
UK Joker is a pain in the neck
Russian mockery of Boris Johnson’s visit to Ukraine would normally be dismissed as Putin propaganda.
But the truth is that Britain’s Prime Minster is a joke, and that our country is being further degraded by the fact that he lies to us in Downing Street.
