Although I have lost faith with politics and do not vote, I have “true blue” veins running through my body.
But, I will say this now. If the government does not pull its socks up and “get real”, they will lose the next election and by a massive margin.
Yes, the vaccinations were a great success but you cannot rely on that for years to come.
I do not know what it is about this current Conservative party but they are so very short sighted. Fuel “crisis”, is Christmas going to be cancelled again, the list goes on and on.
I have always been a forward planner and have had to be. I ran the finances of a company that millions of pounds of debt and I always had to think “what if?” It was my job to sort out every financial hiccup.
Johnson is a born optimist but that will not win elections. It is what affects the man or woman in the street that counts, not the spin that number 10 turns out.
With an ineffectual opposition, the government has got lazy but they must be proactive and not reactive.
Maybe, given the complete Horlicks that the government has made of things, a Labour government will be a good change but are they really up to it? They talk about binning business rates but did not say what they would put in its place. They have some great ideas which, in isolation, are fine but what are the alternatives? I have made some suggestions about the change in business rates but, because they affect big business, I doubt that they would even start thinking about it.
