‘Clueless And Deluded’

Some think that because multi-millionaires in the UK are getting richer, and the Brexit vote hasn’t had much of an impact. But the average wage is being outstripped by rising prices, and peoples living standards are declining.
There have been changes to the NHS, resulting in more serious operations not being done within the 18 week target and people waiting in corridors in A+E. In 2015 the Conservatives put in their election manifesto a promise about making GP appointments easier. The promise has now been dropped, another broken promise. Theresa May wants the General Election to be about Brexit, lets hope that the facts about our poorly performing NHS and ailing social care do not get forgotten.

The police recorded a total of 4.8 million offences in the year ending December 2016, an annual rise of 9%. Knife crime rose 11 per cent and gun crime by 7% in the last year alone.

The cost of National debt payment paid by the Government in 2011/12 was £48 billion, in 2016/17 it was £62 billion, next year the same debt payments will amount to £68 billion. Theresa May thinks her leadership qualities are ‘Strong and Stable’, I would say ‘Clueless And Deluded’.

I am not sure if people would attribute any of these facts to Brexit, perhaps its as a result of Conservative policies? I am sure Theresa May and her wealthy family will not suffer due to reduced police and NHS funding, unlike us ordinary folk.

 

A Deceitful Government.

The Crown Prosecution Service is expected to announce before the General election in June whether around 30 Tory MPs will be criminally charged over the alleged 2015 election expenses scandal.

The Conservative Government has also broken a legal deadline to announce any changes to the state pension age, leaving millions of older voters in the dark about their future pensions. The Government is legally mandated to review the state pension age by May 7th, as set out in the 2014 Pensions Act.

The Cridland review recommended scrapping the triple-lock pension, which guarantees a minimum annual rise to the state pension by 2.5 per cent. It also recommended raising the state pension age from 67 to 68 between 2037 and 2039, which would affect almost 6 million people. For people who are younger than 30, they might find themselves working until the age of 70. Our Conservative Government are a bunch of self-serving crooks. They tell the electorate as little as possible; retiring at 70 will not be in the Conservative manifesto, not a chance, but it will happen.

The campaign group Transparency International, whose head of UK advocacy and research Rachel Davies has said: “It’s absolutely true that the UK is one of the leading financial centres for the laundering of corrupt money from overseas, whether through the property market, luxury goods or other sectors”.
