Actually Brexit is our only long term salvation. If we can grow our economy without the protectionist constraints of the EU we have a much better chance of getting back on our feet without having to inflate our way out of the problem.

We are borrowing out of sheer necessity, to save jobs , the economy , public services and maintain social calm.

There’s no alternative.

From here on in things will improve , we can all do our bit to get our great country back to normal.
"Was" a Great Country.

The omnishambles that is Boris is a complete embarrassment at home and away.

A blubbering fool who was a failed journalist is lining the pockets of a Tory mates under the guise of Brexit and Covid and you all lap it up.

I am sick to death of the British public being told how to live by career Etonians who know nothing of real life.

Jacob Rees-Mogg - Example of a Cun7.

“Time to go after the tax cheats.”

You are asking the tories to go after themselves

It will never happen now

They have increased massively tax cheating for the wealthy

And blatant embezzlement of borrowed public funds which ordinary taxpayers will repay

The 14 million knew full well they would do this

But voted for them anyway, motivated by racism alone
Remind me again which party was investigated by the ECHR for anti semitism ? Removed

A BNP-tory slander campaign, conspiring with class traitors within Labour, Starmer being their leader

Similar to the current hatchet job on Sturgeon

Scots are canny. Hopefully the voters will see through the
lies

The primary role of gov't is to protect it's citizens from internal and external security threats!!! That means law & order and defence must be top of their priorities!!!

Lavishing money on those too indolent to find work or take responsibility for their own welfare is not!!!
Highly unlikely the taxes you've personally paid will ever cover what you'll take out of the system in public services or pensions...

That would make you a hypercritical ponce now, wouldn't it.

Just thank God the tories are in power and not Labour!!!!

It is now widely recognised that, had labour been in charge, the total death toll would have exceeded the one million mark and that our economy would have shrunk by 60% with little or no chance of recovery!!!

These are the facts!!!

Yes, of course Labour voters carefully scrutinise and question their candidates before voting for them, don't they? That's how you get mega-brains like Diane Abbot and David Lammy in the House of Commons.

When you say America I assume you mean USA, if so, thank you very much but it may have escaped your notice but their per capita debt is not much different to ours and they also have an illegal immigrant problem so guess who would be their ideal island to process those illegal immigrants in. Think I’d rather have China at least we’d have work and lots of new buildings and bridges ??

I do wonder how any sensible person can look at this monthly borrowing figure, and still insist on spending, spending and more spending (as routine, rather than the CV19 exceptional spending)

Why Brexiters continually repeat stuff they’ve already been defeated on many times? For example, Brexit is not politics aligned

Why don't we accept that virus of various kinds will come and go and will kill a few. This has been happening for thousands of years. No lockdown then, then why now ? How long shall we hide from the virus. Bring back normalcy.

Simonk said "We’ve got vaccines coming out of our ears "
I didn't know vaccine could react in such a way! It must be most concerning to experience that. My commiserations to you. I hope you recover soon.

If the background level of Covid continues into the future in Western Societies then Governments face a stark choice.
Ironically China seems to have both contained the Virus and returned to Economic growth.
Our politicians need to understand the portent of this.

Western hegemony is over.
Shame Sturgeon still cant account for the two Billions she appears to have squandered or tucked away having strangely somehow forgot where she put it. Need I say more! Oh Eck! Removed
