I clapped for the NHS, but our GP's did not hear it. They have been safe at their homes since March. They will also get £12-50 for each vaccination given, well their staff will administer while they count the income from guess Their Homes Removed

Am I the only person in the country who has been better served by their GP than before the Covid crisis? Contact has been easier, as once an online form (e-consult) was completed, at 8pm I was in the system and called back first thing the next day. I have since seen doctors and nurses and had all the tests I needed. I have also had the flu jab sooner this year as they were so well organised!

What to do? Maybe they'll go engineer an election after Johnson quits (generally expected anytime from spring 21) and leave the problem to a labour government, as usual.
Oh Jeremy,

Your understanding of history is about as accurate as Corbyn saying he is not a racist. Please stop printing garbage in the hope that some people will believe it. They won't. Labour never could manage money and never will be because of their outdates ideologies.

It seems that you haven't realised that other than 2010, Labour has always left the economy in a better state than the Tories. You are just peddling the garbage you read in the Express.

In case you have noticed David, the rich are getting hammered by high taxes under the Tories and have always been. That is why they contribute so much every time the figures are published. When you, and fellow Lefties, start dealing in facts instead of your pathetic ideologies maybe you will get someone to listen. Until then, I suggest you stop making yourself look stupid.
Urrrgh! A creepy crawly Tory. Off your knees, sycophant. Removed

A large portion of the debt is held by the Bank of England which the government owns therefore that debt can be wrote off at the stroke of a pen. The choice is clear pen or austerity.

The Evil Tories said if Corbyn borrowed money he would bankrupt the country.

And Corbyn in his manifesto he said he would borrow just a fraction of the Sunak has already borrowed this year.

And now Sunak says he has not bankrupt the country because he is printing money to buy the debt

So the Evil Tories lied before the election.

They just lie and lie and lie.
So you're suggesting if Corbyn had been in charge he wouldn't have supported the UK through Covid? sounds like yet another reason to be glad that he lost to me.

Muppet.

Obviously public sector pay must fall relative to others, it's already too high. This drivel of them wanting to get back to even more excesive pay of some magic ideal high point has to end. Ckearly a 20% cut in one go would be better and gets the job done for a few years, but the slow torture for whingers of a pay freeze for a decade will be a good start. Top to bottom police to nurses teachers.
