How some people have the audacity to moan that our country is becoming like the third world when they openly welcome the third world into our country is beyond my logic !

It's not looking good - we're either going to end up with a remainer or someone without British heritage.    Whoever they put in place,  I think we could do with a general election soon afte

They inherited low inflation, low mortgage rates tied to low interest rates. 14k police, but an untold number of illegal and legal immigrants, countering all investment in NHS schools etc. G

Just caught glimpses of it mate but i don't think they have lowered the tax threshold enough to benefit the low pay also it seems as thought they are going to penalise those on universal credit who are in low paid job's if they don't find a better paid job.

In reality mate, it don’t come to a rub of soap over the year but it is a step in the right direction.

Theres going to be no painless way to deal with the socialist big state model we are all living in, we have been living in it too long.

Theres already terrible casualties for people looking after relatives who are disabled or single parents or whatever….that’s going to be a very delicate balancing act.

These politicians have been betraying us so long there’s no reason to think this is some kind of “new dawn” but any step in the opposite direction has to be welcomed.

I think the big one is the corporation tax, a massive two fingers I’m assuming to that little party the G8 had the other year when they agreed to a standard rate of corporation tax so that they were robbing everyone equally and no place was more attractive than the other ?

I may be totally mistaken ?…..but if I’m not that is definitely a green shoot of saying “Britain first” is it not ?

No, apologies, got it all round my bollocks…..the old memory isn’t what it once was.

Theres a way to go yet before we see if we are willing to say “Britain first”

I wouldn’t go as far as to say any of them are “getting there” but it’s the first microcosm of common sense I have heard out of Parliament for about 20 years…….for them to just say the words is refreshing.

But, I don’t think anybody should be getting the street partys ready just yet !

So  they're going to 'Introduce VAT free shopping for overseas visitors'.

 

Brilliant. 

 

How does that help British families? What are they supposed to do, black up and walk round Tescos putting on accents?

 

As far as I can see, it's more of nothing from the same old politicians - they've done the bare minimum for normal folk and, nothing of any note has changed :thumbdown:

 

Here comes the new boss.............

I agree mate, it’s always a bit of “here’s a tenner” while they relieve you of a hundred quid…..but isn’t it great that someone finally said “let’s take an axe to some tax” ?

Pet the dog when it does things right and kick it up the arse when it does things wrong imho

Its not exactly hard to chip away at tax when tax is the highest it’s ever been, but at least someone said it and did it even if it amounts to the sum total of f**k all.

Yes but, that's my problem with it mate - they always give good soundbites to curry favour with the masses then, do virtually nothing or the bare minimum. 

 

As far as I'm concerned, they can keep their 1% tax cut as long as they stop chasing down folks that do a few cash jobs.

Absolutely agree with that mate 👍

By encouraging economic activity. Literally creating economic growth. Literally adding income to businesses to create healthier finances. You don’t see how that helps British workers?

I don't see how that will filter down to help British families as quickly as it needs to.

I see it creating more ill feeling - allowing foreigners to pay less for products while our own are having their finances squeezed.

Don't we give foreigners enough already?

 

Why not just cut or abolish VAT on more items for everyone? - it sounds fairer to me.

‘Foreigners’ lol. It’s got nothing to do with benefitting foreigners. 

I didn’t say it would be perfect, just explained how it benefits us. It encourages trade balances to shift in our favour. If uk businesses experience increased trade, then uk workers experience increased earnings and job opportunities. It’s economic stimulation.

And I agree on abolishing taxes on economic activity across the board. This however is a logical starting place. Get cash flowing in, rather than simply flowing around.
