Budget 2021: 'Scrooge Sunak not levelling with people' on cuts
04/03/2021 | news | business | 925
The Budget leaves the chancellor looking more Scrooge than Santa, says the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
Looks like Fishi Rishi is learning from his boss about the art of appealing to the public whilst lying through your teeth.

A worthy heir to the Brexit BoJo and the bonkers backbenchers.

Realisation dawns. When we make ourselves poorer the poorest lose most. Meanwhile coming soon "carbon neutral by 2050" as the vast cost of futile attempts to control climate are piled on to the bill for trying in vain to control a virus.
Everything is "in vain" for you. I wonder why you haven't jumped for a cliff yet. Removed
So Sunak is a traditional lie telling Tory.

Why hasn't he done anything about the terrible levels of pollution? The EU has confirmed then the UK has been breaking pollution level for over a decade and is in the process of fining the UK for poisoning the British people for the befit of foreign banks etc.

Stop Johnson killing our people.

Blah blah blah. Not least the comments from the 77th brigade.

Well done govt for negotiating this.

Cheers .. I'll drink to that.

Yes, it's a great win for Scottish industry and one that they will no doubt continue to benefit from after independence.

Sunak's wife actively hides money in offshore tax havens:

If Sunak is truly concerned with making sure taxes are fair, I suggests he starts at home.

LOL - first line of the article 'owns shares in a business that...'

I own shares in various businesses and haven't a clue how they handle finance. If you are going to judge someone by their share portfolio investment, you have better start looking at every person with an ISA or pension. What a non story

He aint gonna do that. Its always been about screwing as many people as possible.
Thats one of the reasons people fiddle their taxes. But the poor are kept to an area where they cant fiddle they just pay what they owe and more of course.
Rishi Sunak is the richest MP ever. He made his money gambling with other people's money at Goldman Sachs, contributing to the financial crash. It's no surprise that he has no concept of how to fairly run an economy, it's just one big game to him. Removed

did you understand that Sunak just said he has been on the "spend spend spend" and will continue on the "spend spend spend".

What is that famous line by Del Boy. Something starting with "Plo"?

May be the BBC would like to contribute to the pot, cut some of the extortionate salaries or give back the free licence to the pensioners - BBC = Scrooge now that's a good example. Sunak has done the best he can in these very difficult times
Perhaps Mrs Sunak should show the way and abandon her elaborate tax evasion schemes first?....

The example should always flow from the top. Or maybe that's just too old-fashioned for you?...

The off-topic link *confirms* that there is nothing illegal.
It would be much nice nicer if you people who could take swipes or otherwise a the government by staying on topic.

Another bill Rishi will have to find is the following:-

The government has settled with former civil servant Sir Philip Rutnam over his claim for unfair dismissal.

Sources close to Sir Philip confirmed to BBC Radio 4's PM that he received £340,000 plus his legal costs.

(The Priti Patel case of bullying and breaking the ministerial code.)

Suppose the public services did nothing during the pandemic. Front line. What did you do. Amazing comment. Why bother.
What's that got to do with the initial comment? S/he said you shouldn't pay someone to do nothing. You responded that public services didn't do nothing, which has nothing to do with that. Making comments that make no sense just make you look like an idiot. Removed
