On balance Rishi Sunak has been a good chancellor and has not been afraid to step up to the challenges when required. Definitely a candidate for the leadership in the future
Much better than Anneliese Dodds whose lack of fiscal understanding is quite frightening - no pay rise for teaching assistants - economy won't recover as quickly - really!

Well don't worry everyone when the pandemics over I'm sure all the "so-called" terrorist attacks will start again, because "apparently" all the suicide bombers are all scared of covid-19.
Funny that isn't it. makes you wonder.

Apparently, dying while murdering people in the name of Allah, guarantees a place in the hereafter (though not according to the Koran). Dying from a virus doesn’t carry the same warranty.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'so-called' terrorist attacks. They either are, or they aren’t.

In all honesty, that just goes to show how over staffed they must have been before. To many 'Directors of inclusivity' 'gender equality officers' etc that are not needed. The cull has been necessary. Tax payers pay for these people. Presumably with 25% less staff there will be massive cuts in council tax? No chance, public sector couldnt manage the money from a village fete properly!
You are another one that's as thick as mince. If it's that great working in the public sector - why don't you try it. People like you with your bigotry, are dangerous. Removed

So who do you think was processing all these Furlough payments and the 800% increase in applications for Universal Credit payments. Not the MP's but I suspect low paid civil servants as you said 'Working from Home' the keyword there is 'Working'. Not furloughed.
you try getting someone at HMRC to pick up the phone....that's because no one is there. Most of the payments would have been automatically authorised simply by matching claims against RTI records. If you think the majority of the civil service (MoD, Home Office, F&CO etc.) were working whilst furloughed you must be smoking something. Removed

Worked in both too. The public sector job was full of lazy people and the office regularly full of dramatics - often people would go home in floods of tears and be allowed a week off to cope with whatever had upset them (break ups or their friends saying something mean). The private sector jobs have been mostly hard workers with a smattering of lazy.
If the private sector is that brilliant, why does it always have the begging bowl out when things go wrong - and expects everyone else to pay for it. By the way, you're a bigot. I also don't believe you've ever been employed. Removed

Everybody else doesn't pay for it. Private sector is the only place where money is generated so if the private sector are taking cash then it's only money they initially made. Where do you think the money for the obscene public sector pay rises come from? It's ALL made in the private sector.

Consideration should be given to the imposition of a 25% tax on goods from China. The virus originated there in insanitory conditions that the Chinese have sought to hide. They have to pay for the damage caused to our economy. This tax will also make home produced products more competitive and encourage new businesses to flourish.

Yes. The Franco / German masters of the EU are trying to enforce their ultra lefty liberalism through EU policy on the supposedly sovereign governments of Poland and Hungary. Completely against the will of those countries electorate. Will they never learn. They should stick to just trade issues and let sovereign states decide how they want their societies to be run.

Ha ha. Never heard this before - not! Meanwhile, back on planet Earth . . .
rationalizing local authorities to 1 unitary authority per county would save £3Bn a year. similar again if they did the same for NHS trusts & made service uniform across the country

& legalizing Cannabis could raise a further £3 to £4BN (plus savings on police/courts/prisons etc) more if they considered legalizing other recreational drugs & prostitution.

rationalizing local authorities to 1 unitary authority per county would save £3Bn a year. Enough to keep public sector pay rises & then some. Could expect similar savings again if they did the same for NHS Trusts.

Monumental BS of course the UK public will be picking up tab for a decade! These incompetent tw?ts could not organise the proverbial P?ss up in a brewery aka 50k deaths and still counting! If it was not for Mr Moderator I'd have used the term 'could not organise a BJ in a brothel', the letters BJ don't stand for Boris Johnston.
That will get removed by the moderators lol. Removed

I know, at least it was seen for a fraction of seconds...
I do not believe the state has the right to take the life of a citizen or foreign individual.

However, in exceptional circumstances, if it is found that members of our Government, or their families, or their associates, through their connections, have profited beyond reasonable expectations, from this current crisis, then they, and their associates, should be executed.

God bless the Queen.

Hysterical and self-righteous.
It’s perfect for the Tories. The increases in taxation (by direct or stealth), which somehow with the Tories always hits the middle/ lower income earners ...

...will be blamed on Covid ...

..and the economic decline caused by Brexit will be championed as Brexit Bonuses and also Brexit Opportunities, to be gobbled up by the Gullible Electorate.

So many HYS posters are still sulking over Brexit and it influences everything they say, even if they don't know it. Even on a largely non-Brexit topic like this. Pathetic. Move on, it's happened. You're like Sturgeon with her obsession with independence. Removed

Odd it isn't how people who feel they were lied to & cheated, won't let it go though! Especially as we're still being lied to by Boris, the Govt & the Brexiters!

To them, lying is as natural as breathing! Still, Boris will be gone by Q1 next year & if his successor doesn't make Brexit a roaring success, then 2024 could see the extinction of the Tory Party!??

It's not an obsession, it's an expectation. Brexit has everything to do with this topic. Brexit makes the UK poorer which is not what you want in the middle of a recession.

Ah! But the catastrophic consequences of the disaster that is Brexit have still to come. Hence legitimate continuing concern about it and contempt for those that voted for it.

Covid and Brexit are both going to be a severe drain of HMG Revenue. Don’t just believe yes truly, believe Business Leaders and Respected Economists.

We have the most devious PM in place and he will doubtless take advantage of these (now) parallel issues.
