COVID wasn’t Boris Johnson’s fault. And voters are grateful for the huge package of financial support he and the chancellor have provided during the pandemic.
But splurge on spending can’t go on.
In particular, the government must stop pouring money into the public sector and hoping for the best while the public’s experience deteriorates.
Taxes are rising – but so are NHS waiting lists, DVLA delays, waiting for passports and anything else you can think of.
Meanwhile, families struggling to survive look at bloated government spending, overstaffed government agencies (but empty offices in Whitehall) and the highest tax rates since the early 1950s – and they know it’s madness.
Half believe the cost-of-living crisis is avoidable, a damning new poll shows.
And nearly two-thirds believe excessive public spending is to blame for high inflation.
No wonder a Tory MP confronted with the results exclaimed: “F*** that’s bad!”
Lord Frost has urged the government to abandon the high spending, high tax model and return to a “conservative approach”.
Boris has to listen. Or risk paying a very high price.
level of idiocy
According to recent figures, ONLY one in 17 crimes is solved in the UK each year.
For burglaries, it’s less than one in 20, and only one in 77 reported rapes ever leads to a charge.
But fear not, the forces of law and order are cracking down. . . attribution.
Woke Police in Wiltshire recorded a “non-criminal hate incident” after an 11-year-old boy was called “Shorty” in the street by another boy, The Sun has learned.
It would be ridiculous if it weren’t so serious. Aside from the very real consequences that “non-criminal” offenders can suffer for years without a legal remedy, the police have more than enough real cases to deal with.
Yet they wasted time capturing 10,000 such complaints every year.
The Court of Appeal has ruled that records of “non-criminal hate incidents” are unlawful.
The police must stop the woke nonsense and start dealing with the real crime.
Blind date great
FOR more than 15 years he has been one of the most famous voices on primetime TV.
Still, you would have struggled to recognize the face of Graham Skidmore, who sadly passed away at the age of 90.
He set the tone for today’s voiceover stars on “Blind Date” and “Shooting Stars.”
But was he the best?
As “our Graham” would say, the choice is yours.
