It is 'Mexico' - the substituted characters are all adjacent on a keyboard.

On the contrary, I understood that sentence and all of the subsequent ones.

I disagree with the suggestion made in the article that "the government should go further".

The government has gone too far already with handouts which are insulating fragile, marginal, and unsustainable businesses from reality; or providing a public subsidy for private profits. Neither of these are reasonable things to ask of the taxpayer.

Totally disagree with this.

The furlough scheme was too generous and lasts too long. The 'grants' being given away now are simply an insult to anyone who pays taxes.

There is very significant resentment against this giveaway in my experience.

These are sensible and, in the current circumstances, urgently-needed reforms. I would add to the list the suggestion that the recent phenomenon of government subsidies to the "third sector" are no longer defensible and should be ended entirely.

I've been a critic of this administration for it's eagerness to surrender the policy agenda to the media and the left, but look forward to being a vociferous supporter of it if it can find the courage to put ambitious reforms such as these into practise.

It's a very simple issue: perverts are trying push their degeneracy onto children and must be fought against at every opportunity.

Welfare, overseas 'aid', and subsidies to charities have been allowed to proliferate beyond any beyond any reasonable measure.

Such expenditure was irresponsible prior to covid, but is entirely unsustainable in its wake.

The best economic stimulus is allowing the taxpayer to keep some of their money and spend it in the economy.

Agreed - there is never anything 'harsh' about people paying back money that they took from another.

There is however something distinctly dishonest about failing to do so having signed a contract which states otherwise. Non-payment of loans is indistinguishable from other types of fraud and should be a criminal issue.

Absolutely agree.

Those 'relatively minor' sums represent far more than the taxpayer is obliged to give.

This is one of the many reasons why personal guarantees from owners were an essential prerequisite for participation in this scheme - if indeed it needed to exist at all.
