"Indeed, this Government has spent over £280 billion to support peoples jobs and incomes through this emergency."
He clearly thinks that government has money of its own. Perhaps he needs to be reminded that much of the 280 billion will need to be repaid by the taxpayers he forgets to thank.
Amazing how quickly the 20 year old tax payer has forgotten the education he has so recently left could be described as a hand out, one which was was paid for by taxation. There really is no such thing as free money, it is more a case of a small return from the many thousands of pounds tax that we all pay during the course of our working lives.
Yes I recall the very same advertisement, and I have made what provisions that I could. Finally it seems that the Government has put in place "workplace" pensions. In my personal case I have been unable to work full time for 25 years due to having little choice but to care for my severely disabled wife. I must admit that when this situation first arose I imagined that it would only be a year or so, but it has not worked out that way.
You really have not understood the problem here. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of free school meals, they have been part of the system for a long time. However the real outrage this time around was the very poor value for money that these boxes of food represented. At £15.00 per child we should have seen a decent hamper for each child, but it was clear that the Spivs had made off with the lions share of the cash and thought they would get away with it because Conservatives don't give a dam.
It would be but the amount was £15.00, talk of £30.00 boxes refer to two children. The real scandal was that the food provided wasn't worth £7.00 (in the case of a single child) whilst the other 50% had been pocketed by the Spiv who got hold of taxpayers money to provide good meals for the Children.
Indeed whilst I do have one very small occupational pension, the norm was not to be offered one. The small pension relating to a period with one of the nations better employers Nationwide.
WE cannot afford a digital divide going forward. It is prudent that we ensure that children in remote learning have a laptop and a connection to the web. We cannot as a country afford not to recognize that this shift is permanent and Access to the web and to word processing etc. The Internet is a necessity, as much as water. more important than transport and more vital than heating.
"The idea that some areas need to pause because they are ahead of other areas of the country is ridiculous." It suggests that supplies are limited. The Government is not giving us numbers or saying how much this has cost us. Keeping these things secret is the policy I would want followed if I was in power,
Even at the end the guy was sprouting rubbish and inciting division. Fake Donald the King of fake news.
"All this hysteria about a two hour occupation of the Capitol is just that."
Let's not forget that five people were killed and numerous others were beaten up, or do white lives no longer matter?
