Where is our NHS 350 million pounds was that was promised to us

jngrktI’m not one bit surprised by the media intentions towards David Cameron they were all over him from the beginning then they spat him out as soon as he lost the referendum by saying that he was the worst Prime Minister in history see article below:


What has the nation learned today let’s begin with the establishment was taken to High Court over Brexit. If the establishment had its way they would not give parliament its approval to give the house a vote. Therefore I’m glad that this has been resolved by the court to clarify that the need for parliament to give its approval before the Brexit process starts is of huge constitutional importance. QC Lord Pannick said the case raises an issue concerning the limits of the power of the executive. According to the attorney general Jeremy Wright, Ice Queen Theresa May does not require consent from Parliament to go ahead with getting Brexit under way, it was proper and established principle that government use the royal prerogative in such cases. Now it is claimed the house will have a vote after all then all of a sudden there will be no secord referendum See article below:




It is said that the Foreign Secretary (Boris Johnson) has promised that those who prophesied doom over Brexit will be proven wrong. Well Joker Johnson there is a saying that a promise is a comfort to a fool. How about acknowledging that hate crimes have increased post Brexit against EU citizens, foreign nationals, Jews and Muslims in U.K. and what is the Conservatives are doing to address this issue. People don’t want lip services they want to see action taken against the perpetrators.jfjf

Intriguingly it now transpired that Joker Johnson (Boris Johnson) decided he wanted to support the remain camp then was hoodwinked into believing that if he supported the remain campaigner he would hamper his chances of succeeding his leadership campaign in the conservatives so he decided to switch over to the Brexit camp with a promise that he will become leader. See article below:



For all the spin that the establishment gives on Brexit it’s no wonder why Nissan is in panic mode and seeking assurances that the establishment that they will continue to keep UK a competitive nation to do business after it leaves the EU.  Thanks to the people who voted for Brexit people are being to see a raise in prices like household items, food, mobile, gas, and electricity bills.



Michael Wilshaw in a must-read interview in the guardian newspaper more grammars “will actually lower standards for the great majority of children. That is my view. And it is socially divisive as well.” He can’t understand May’s assertion that grammars can be introduced in a way that lifts up all schools, and is aghast at her claim that the plans will not mean a return to a “binary system”. “What does that mean? If you are taking away the most able kids from the comprehensive system, you’re creating by another name secondary moderns. You can call it what you like It’s been alleged fewer than half of England’s grammar schools give poor pupils priority in allocating places. An analysis of the 163 grammar schools’ admissions policies found 90 do not take account of a child’s eligibility for free school meals. Then add David Morgan’s comments and article below:


In light of this the question I will to all the political parties in the UK now the vote for Brexit has taken place how many MEPs will continue stand for the European Parliament now Brexit has taken place. Moreover, will UKIP still continue to stand as candidates In European Parliament as their continued to be leaderless or will we see the return of Nigel Farage to emerge as the new leader of the one man party (UKIP).

Wow this something that is not new, now Steven Wolf decides that he will quite UKIP and go as an independent. See article below:


Somehow I’m reassured that Labour Party have asked 170 questions to parliament to get some answers about the establishment position for the economy post Brexit to get an idea of the government stance.

The establishment should be ashamed of themselves for cutting Mental Health budget they give in one hand and take on the other hand. It was the Thatcher Government that started the cuts in Mental Health and Learning Disability hospitals and closed some of the hospitals and homes to sell it to the highest bidders who then in turned decided to not to build on the land just to wait until the right time to build luxury apartments. I take no lessons about blaming Labour mismanagement of the economy from the conservatives. How strange that even the King’s Fund have come out in favor of investing more funding in our NHS and at Prime Minister Question Time Ice Queen Theresa May was ducking the questions. See article from King’s Fund below:



Let’s be honest it was the Conservatives who to introduce Private Finance Initiative(PFI) which they did in small parts during Thatcher and Major reign and when Labour got into power they carried on with much of the policy in public services.

I do seem to recall that a certain Boris Johnson saying that if the nation votes to leave the EU that our NHS will be better off out of EU by £350 million. If this is the case where is the money gone to as our NHS could do with this money now. An MP is demanding the health secretary investigates how a private firm running dozens of GP surgeries and NHS walk-in centres is handling its finances.



Labour unite to fight the conservatives let this be our mission to prove the conservative wrong.

How far are the Conservatives willing to go to work on the meaning of Brexit. It seems to me that they don’t have a clue what is best for our nation over Brexit. Now that I’ve done the pleasantries and people are sitting comfortably on the edge of their seats waiting for the sting to hit them in their face and their pockets. Here comes the announcement which I predicted the day that Ice Queen Theresa May had her coronation day she will be playing a cat and mouse games with our lives by triggering formal Brexit process by early next year followed by a snap General Election in 2017. This will come as no surprise to some people the moment Ice Queen Theresa May announced the trigger article 50, the clause needed to start the process in the early months of 2017 the sterling fell to a three year low against the euro and U.S. dollar.

Here is something that make you cringe when you this this person face:

Britain must size the “golden opportunity” provided by Brexit and not “fritter it away’. Notice the tone of language the Conservatives use to soften the blow to the British pubic in order to hoodwink us all into believing that the British voters will be daft into believing the conservative is the best thing since slice cake. UKIP are jumping for joy at the moment by winning the Brexit vote and they can’t seem to move from the past even though they have chosen a new leader in UKIP only for her to resign after 18 days being elected. So far we have seen changes in leadership of various political parties the only difference is many political parties in Parliament and councils calling on their foes to defect or cross the floor to their party.

Intriguing that Philip Hammond claims that he will prioritise spending on new homes and transportation and stabbing his chum in the back (George Osborne). It’s good to know that he acknowledges that the Brexit vote caused turbulence and business confidence would be on a bit of a rollercoaster. So in a nutshell he is hinting of borrowing more money to simulate the economy.

It’s no wonder why when we all look at the wider issue on rental homes the establishment will want to make a quick announcement to get it out of the way at their conference.

See article below UK mass shortage of rental homes:


My two close friends put their case so eloquently who said:

Chris Lowe:

International students bring 7 billion GBP into the UK every year. 55 current world leaders were educated in British universities.

In the EU Referendum, Leave campaigners celebrated the Australian visa system.

Australia has a government policy to target international students and bring more and more of them to Australia. The British government has the opposite policy.

In pursuit of Brexit, the Conservatives will turn the UK into a backwater of Europe, ignored except as a quaint tourist destination. In 50 years’ time, world leaders may not even remember that the UK exists, while outward looking countries benefit from the money of international students and the soft power that hosting future leaders brings.

J David Morgan:

The response to Amber Rudd

The plans were condemned as “madness” by Paul Blomfield, co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on international students. The Labour MP said: “I’m shocked by the home secretary’s comments, which are spectacularly ill informed. She doesn’t seem to know how many universities we have in the UK or understand the current rules for which she is responsible, let alone appreciate the contribution international students make.
“International students bring £8bn a year to the UK economy, creating tens of thousands of jobs. Education is one of our most successful export industries. The only people cheering today’s announcement will be our competitors.”

Ice Queen Theresa May will use her Conference speech to claim the centre ground is the way forward. If I’m honest I don’t always support let along vote Tories, Ice Queen Theresa May does have a point for any party to win elections they need to move to the centre ground to win votes to form the next government in waiting. Hate to say it but listening to Ice Queen Theresa May on the one hand it sounded like part socialism and capitalism trying to convince our Labour supporters to cross over to the conservatives which includes UKIP and Libdems voters.nfjgkbn

Here is the full extract of Ice queen Theresa May full text Conference Speech In Birmingham 2016:

When we came to Birmingham this week, some big questions were hanging in the air.

Do we have a plan for Brexit? We do.

Are we ready for the effort it will take to see it through? We are.

Can Boris Johnson stay on message for a full four days? Just about.

But I know there’s another big question people want me to answer.

What’s my vision for Britain? My philosophy? My approach?

Today I want to answer that question very directly.

I want to set out my vision for Britain after Brexit.

I want to lay out my approach – the things I believe.

I want to explain what a country that works for everyone means.

I want to set our party and our country on the path towards the new centre ground of British politics…

built on the values of fairness and opportunity…

where everyone plays by the same rules and where every single person – regardless of their background, or that of their parents – is given the chance to be all they want to be.

And as I do so, I want to be clear about something else: that a vision is nothing without the determination to see it through.

No vision ever built a business by itself. No vision ever clothed a family or fed a hungry child. No vision ever changed a country on its own.

You need to put the hours in and the effort too.

But if you do, great things can happen. Great changes can occur.

And be in no doubt, that’s what Britain needs today.

Because in June people voted for change. And a change is going to come.

Change has got to come because as we leave the European Union and take control of our own destiny, the task of tackling some of Britain’s long-standing challenges – like how to train enough people to do the jobs of the future – becomes ever more urgent.

But change has got to come too because of the quiet revolution that took place in our country just three months ago – a revolution in which millions of our fellow citizens stood up and said they were not prepared to be ignored anymore.

Because this is a turning point for our country.

A once-in-a-generation chance to change the direction of our nation for good.

To step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to be.

Let’s be clear: we have come a long way over the past six years.

We’ve brought the deficit down.

Got more people into work than ever before.

Taken the lowest paid out of income tax.

Established a new National Living Wage.

Helped nearly a million new business to set up and grow.

Got almost one and a half million more children into good or outstanding schools.

Put record investment into the NHS.

Created nearly 3 million new apprenticeships.

And brought crime down by more than a quarter to its lowest ever level.

That’s a record of which we should all be proud.

And this morning it’s right that we pause to say thank you to the man who made that possible. A man who challenged us to change and told us that if we did then we would win again.

And he was right. We did change. We did win. The first majority Conservative Government in almost 25 years.

A great leader of our party – a great servant to our country.

David Cameron, thank you.

But now we need to change again. For the referendum was not just a vote to withdraw from the EU. It was about something broader – something that the European Union had come to represent.

It was about a sense – deep, profound and let’s face it often justified – that many people have today that the world works well for a privileged few, but not for them.

It was a vote not just to change Britain’s relationship with the European Union, but to call for a change in the way our country works – and the people for whom it works – forever.

Knock on almost any door in almost any part of the country, and you will find the roots of the revolution laid bare.

Our society should work for everyone, but if you can’t afford to get onto the property ladder, or your child is stuck in a bad school, it doesn’t feel like it’s working for you.

Our economy should work for everyone, but if your pay has stagnated for several years in a row and fixed items of spending keep going up, it doesn’t feel like it’s working for you.

Our democracy should work for everyone, but if you’ve been trying to say things need to change for years and your complaints fall on deaf ears, it doesn’t feel like it’s working for you.

And the roots of the revolution run deep. Because it wasn’t the wealthy who made the biggest sacrifices after the financial crash, but ordinary, working class families.

And if you’re one of those people who lost their job, who stayed in work but on reduced hours, took a pay cut as household bills rocketed, or – and I know a lot of people don’t like to admit this – someone who finds themselves out of work or on lower wages because of low-skilled immigration, life simply doesn’t seem fair.

It feels like your dreams have been sacrificed in the service of others.

So change has got to come.

Because if we don’t respond – if we don’t take this opportunity to deliver the change people want – resentments will grow. Divisions will become entrenched.

And that would be a disaster for Britain.

Because the lesson of Britain is that we are a country built on the bonds of family, community, citizenship.

Of strong institutions and a strong society.

The country of my parents who instilled in me a sense of public service and of public servants everywhere who want to give something back.

The parent who works hard all week but takes time out to coach the kids football team at the weekend.

The local family business in my constituency that’s been serving the community for more than 50 years.

The servicemen and women I met last week who wear their uniform proudly at home and serve our nation with honour abroad.

A country of decency, fairness and quiet resolve.

And a successful country – small in size but large in stature – that with less than 1% of the world’s population boasts more Nobel Laureates than any country outside the United States… with three more added again just yesterday – two of whom worked here in this great city.

A country that boasts three of the top ten universities in the world. The world’s leading financial capital. And institutions like the NHS and BBC whose reputations echo in some of the farthest corners of the globe.

All possible because we are one United Kingdom – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – and I will always fight to preserve our proud, historic Union and will never let divisive nationalists drive us apart.

Yet within our society today, we see division and unfairness all around. Between a more prosperous older generation and a struggling younger generation. Between the wealth of London and the rest of the country.

But perhaps most of all, between the rich, the successful and the powerful – and their fellow citizens.

Now don’t get me wrong. We applaud success. We want people to get on.

But we also value something else: the spirit of citizenship.

That spirit that means you respect the bonds and obligations that make our society work. That means a commitment to the men and women who live around you, who work for you, who buy the goods and services you sell.

That spirit that means recognising the social contract that says you train up local young people before you take on cheap labour from overseas.

That spirit that means you do as others do, and pay your fair share of tax.

But today, too many people in positions of power behave as though they have more in common with international elites than with the people down the road, the people they employ, the people they pass in the street.

But if you believe you’re a citizen of the world, you’re a citizen of nowhere. You don’t understand what the very word ‘citizenship’ means.

So if you’re a boss who earns a fortune but doesn’t look after your staff…

An international company that treats tax laws as an optional extra…

A household name that refuses to work with the authorities even to fight terrorism…

A director who takes out massive dividends while knowing that the company pension is about to go bust…

I’m putting you on warning. This can’t go on anymore.

A change has got to come. And this party – the Conservative Party – is going to make that change.

So today, I want to set out my plan for a Britain where everyone plays by the same rules and every person has the opportunity to be all they want to be.

It’s a plan to tackle the unfairness and injustice that divides us, so that we may build a new united Britain, rooted in the centre ground.

A plan that will mean government stepping up. Righting wrongs. Challenging vested interests. Taking big decisions. Doing what we believe to be right. Getting the job done.

Because that’s the good that government can do. And it’s what I’m in this for. To stand up for the weak and stand up to the strong.

And to put the power of government squarely at the service of ordinary working-class people.

Because too often that isn’t how it works today.

Just listen to the way a lot of politicians and commentators talk about the public.

They find your patriotism distasteful, your concerns about immigration parochial, your views about crime illiberal, your attachment to your job security inconvenient.

They find the fact that more than seventeen million voters decided to leave the European Union simply bewildering.

Because if you’re well off and comfortable, Britain is a different country and these concerns are not your concerns. It’s easy to dismiss them – easy to say that all you want from government is for it to get out of the way.

But a change has got to come. It’s time to remember the good that government can do.

Time for a new approach that says while government does not have all the answers, government can and should be a force for good;

that the state exists to provide what individual people, communities and markets cannot;

and that we should employ the power of government for the good of the people.

Time to reject the ideological templates provided by the socialist left and the libertarian right and to embrace a new centre ground in which government steps up – and not back – to act on behalf of us all.

Providing security from crime, but from ill health and unemployment too.

Supporting free markets, but stepping in to repair them when they aren’t working as they should.

Encouraging business and supporting free trade, but not accepting one set of rules for some and another for everyone else.

And if we do – if we act to correct unfairness and injustice and put government at the service of ordinary working people – we can build that new united Britain in which everyone plays by the same rules, and in which the powerful and the privileged no longer ignore the interests of the people.

Only we can do it. Because the main lesson I take from their conference last week is that the Labour Party is not just divided, but divisive.

Determined to pit one against another. To pursue vendettas and settle scores. And to embrace the politics of pointless protest that simply pulls people further apart.

That’s what Labour stands for today. Fighting among themselves. Abusing their own MPs. Threatening to end their careers. Tolerating anti-Semitism and supporting voices of hate.

You know what some people call them?

The nasty party.

And with Labour divided, divisive and out-of-touch, we have a responsibility to step up, represent and govern for the whole nation.

So where Labour build barriers, we will build bridges.

That means tackling unfairness and injustice, and shifting the balance of Britain decisively in favour of ordinary working class people.

Giving them access to the opportunities that are too often the preserve of the privileged few.

Putting fairness at the heart of our agenda and creating a country in which hard work is rewarded and talent is welcome.

A nation where contribution matters more than entitlement. Merit matters more than wealth.

A confident global Britain that doesn’t turn its back on globalisation but ensures the benefits are shared by all.

A country that is prosperous and secure, so every person may share in the wealth of the nation and live their life free from fear.

That’s what I mean by a country that works for everyone.

And if we believe in the good that government can do, it’s important for people to trust us to deliver the change they need.

We can start – as I said on Sunday – by doing something obvious. And that is to stop quibbling, respect what the people told us on the 23rd of June – and take Britain out of the European Union.

Because it took that typically British quiet resolve for people to go out and vote as they did: to defy the establishment, to ignore the threats, to make their voice heard.

So let us have that same resolve now.

And let’s be clear about what is going to happen.

Article Fifty – triggered no later than the end of March.

A Great Repeal Bill to get rid of the European Communities Act – introduced in the next Parliamentary session.

Our laws made not in Brussels but in Westminster.

Our judges sitting not in Luxembourg but in courts across the land.

The authority of EU law in this country ended forever.

The people told us they wanted these things – and this Conservative Government is going to deliver them.

It is, of course, too early to say exactly what agreement we will reach with the EU. It’s going to be a tough negotiation, it will require some give and take. And while there will always be pressure to give a running commentary, it will not be in our national interest to do so. But let me be clear about the agreement we seek.

I want it to reflect the strong and mature relationships we enjoy with our European friends.

I want it to include cooperation on law enforcement and counter-terrorism work.

I want it to involve free trade, in goods and services.

I want it to give British companies the maximum freedom to trade with and operate within the Single Market – and let European businesses do the same here.

But let’s state one thing loud and clear: we are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration all over again. And we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That’s not going to happen.

We are leaving to become, once more, a fully sovereign and independent country – and the deal is going to have to work for Britain.

And that Britain – the Britain we build after Brexit – is going to be a Global Britain.

Because while we are leaving the European Union, we will not leave the continent of Europe. We will not abandon our friends and allies abroad. And we will not retreat from the world.

In fact, now is the time to forge a bold, new, confident role for ourselves on the world stage.

Keeping our promises to the poorest people in the world.

Providing humanitarian support for refugees in need.

Taking the lead on cracking down on modern slavery wherever it is found.

Ratifying the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

Always acting as the strongest and most passionate advocate for free trade right across the globe.

And always committed to a strong national defence and supporting the finest Armed Forces known to man.

And this week, our excellent Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, proved not only that we will support them with our hearts and souls. Not only will we remain committed to spending two per cent of our national income on defence.

But we will never again – in any future conflict – let those activist, left-wing human rights lawyers harangue and harass the bravest of the brave – the men and women of Britain’s Armed Forces.

It’s about restoring fairness – something that must be at the heart of everything we do. Supporting those who do the right thing, who make a contribution.

Helping those who give something back.

And that’s at the heart of my plan for our economy too.

An economy that’s fair and where everyone plays by the same rules.

That means acting to tackle some of the economy’s structural problems that hold people back.

Things like the shortage of affordable homes. The need to make big decisions on – and invest in – our infrastructure. The need to rebalance the economy across sectors and areas in order to spread wealth and prosperity around the country.

Politicians have talked about this for years. But the trouble is that this kind of change will never just happen by itself. If that’s what we want, we need the vision and determination to see it through.

That’s why Philip Hammond and Greg Clark are working on a new industrial strategy to address those long-term structural challenges and get Britain firing on all cylinders again.

It’s not about picking winners, propping up failing industries, or bringing old companies back from the dead.

It’s about identifying the industries that are of strategic value to our economy and supporting and promoting them through policies on trade, tax, infrastructure, skills, training, and research and development.

It’s about doing what every other major and growing economy in the world does.

Not just sitting back and seeing what happens – but putting in place a plan and getting on with the job.

So we will identify the sectors of the economy – financial services, yes, but life sciences, tech, aerospace, car manufacturing, the creative industries and many others – that are of strategic importance to our economy, and do everything we can to encourage, develop and support them.

And we will identify the places that have the potential to contribute to economic growth and become the homes to millions of new jobs.

That means inspiring an economic and cultural revival of all of our great regional cities.

We have made a start.

Thanks to George Osborne’s Northern Powerhouse, over the past year, foreign direct investment in the North has increased at double the rate of the rest of the country.

Here in Birmingham, thanks to the incredible Jaguar Land Rover, the West Midlands is the only part of the country to run a trade surplus with China.

And across the region, the Midlands Engine is on track to deliver 300,000 more jobs by 2020.

Now it’s time to build on that success – in Birmingham and Manchester and in other cities across the country.

And as we are here in Birmingham this week, let us show our support for the Conservative Party’s candidate for next year’s mayoral election.

A success in business running John Lewis. An action man in Birmingham, playing his part in transforming this city. A man to get things done, the future Mayor of the West Midlands – Andy Street.

An economy that works for everyone is an economy where everyone plays by the same rules.

I understand the frustration people feel when they see the rich and the powerful getting away with things that they themselves wouldn’t dream of doing. And they wouldn’t get away with if they tried.

I understand that because I feel it too.

There’s always an excuse – a reason why something can’t be done – but when that is used as a basis for inaction, faith in capitalism and free markets falls.

The Conservative Party will always believe in free markets. And that’s precisely why it’s this party that should act to defend them.

From Edmund Burke onwards, Conservatives have always understood that if you want to preserve something important, you need to be prepared to reform it. We must apply that same approach today.

That’s why where markets are dysfunctional, we should be prepared to intervene.

Where companies are exploiting the failures of the market in which they operate, where consumer choice is inhibited by deliberately complex pricing structures, we must set the market right.

It’s just not right, for example, that half of people living in rural areas, and so many small businesses, can’t get a decent broadband connection.

It’s just not right that two thirds of energy customers are stuck on the most expensive tariffs.

And it’s just not right that the housing market continues to fail working people either.

Ask almost any question about social fairness or problems with our economy, and the answer so often comes back to housing.

High housing costs – and the growing gap between those on the property ladder and those who are not – lie at the heart of falling social mobility, falling savings and low productivity.

We will do everything we can to help people financially so they can buy their own home. That’s why Help to Buy and Right to Buy are the right things to do.

But as Sajid said in his bold speech on Monday, there is an honest truth we need to address. We simply need to build more homes.

This means using the power of government to step in and repair the dysfunctional housing market.

It means using public sector land for more and faster house building.

It means encouraging new technologies that will help us to get more houses built faster. And putting in more government investment too.

It means stepping up and doing what’s right for Britain.

Making the market work for working people.

Because that’s what government can do.

And something else we need to do: take big, sometimes even controversial, decisions about our country’s infrastructure.

Because we need to get Britain firing in all areas again.

It is why we will press ahead with plans for High Speed 2, linking London and Birmingham and, eventually, towns and cities in the North.

Why we will shortly announce a decision on expanding Britain’s airport capacity.

And why – having reviewed the evidence and added important new national security safeguards – we signed up to Hinkley Point.

We will take the big decisions when they’re the right decisions for Britain.

Because that’s what government can do.

And we can make these big decisions because our economy is strong and because of the fiscal discipline we have shown over the last six years.

And we must continue to aim for a balanced budget.

But to build an economy that works for everyone, we must also invest in the things that matter, the things with a long-term return.

That is how we will address the weaknesses in our economy, improve our productivity, increase economic growth and ensure everyone gets a fair share.

And that’s not the only reason.

Because while monetary policy – with super-low interest rates and quantitative easing – provided the necessary emergency medicine after the financial crash, we have to acknowledge there have been some bad side effects.

People with assets have got richer. People without them have suffered. People with mortgages have found their debts cheaper. People with savings have found themselves poorer.

A change has got to come. And we are going to deliver it.

Because that’s what a Conservative Government can do.

This party will always be the party of businesses large and small.

But we must acknowledge that the way a small number of businesses behave fuels the frustration people feel.

It’s not the norm. I know that most businesses and the people who run them are hardworking, entrepreneurial and public spirited at heart.

But the actions of a few tar the reputations of the many.

So the party that believes in business is going to change things to help support it.

Too often the people who are supposed to hold big business accountable are drawn from the same, narrow social and professional circles as the executive team.

And too often the scrutiny they provide is not good enough.

A change has got to come.

So later this year we will publish our plans to have not just consumers represented on company boards, but workers as well.

Because we are the party of workers. Of those who put in the effort. Those who contribute and give of their best.

That’s why we announced on Saturday that we’re going to review our laws to make sure that, in our modern and flexible economy, people are properly protected at work.

That’s right.

Workers’ rights – not under threat from a Conservative government.

Workers’ rights – protected and enhanced by a Conservative government.

And let me say something about tax.

We’re all Conservatives here. We all believe in a low-tax economy. But we also know that tax is the price we pay for living in a civilised society.

Nobody, no individual tycoon and no single business, however rich, has succeeded on their own.

Their goods are transported by road, their workers are educated in schools, their customers are part of sophisticated networks taking in the private sector, the public sector and charities.

We’ve all played a part in that success.

So it doesn’t matter to me who you are.

If you’re a tax-dodger, we’re coming after you.

If you’re an accountant, a financial adviser or a middleman who helps people to avoid what they owe to society, we’re coming after you too.

An economy that works for everyone is one where everyone plays by the same rules.

So whoever you are you – however rich or powerful – you have a duty to pay your tax.

And we’re going to make sure you do.

This is a big agenda for change. But it is necessary and essential.

It is a programme for government to act to create an economy that works for everyone – an economy that’s on the side of ordinary working class people.

And an economy that can support the vital public services and institutions upon which we all rely – to invest in the things we hold dear.

Like the NHS – one of the finest health care systems anywhere in the world, and a vital national institution.

An institution that reflects our values, our belief in fairness, and in which we all take enormous pride.

And I mean all.

Because there is complete cross-party support for the NHS.

For its status as a provider of free-at-the-point-of-use health care. For the thousands of doctors and nurses that work around the clock to care for their patients.

We all have a story about the nurse who cared for a loved one, or a surgeon who saved the life of a friend.

So let us take this opportunity to say to those doctors and nurses – thank you.

The NHS should unite us. But year after year, election after election, Labour try to use it to divide us.

At every election since it was established, Labour have said the Tories would cut the NHS – and every time we have spent more on it.

Every election, they say we want to privatise the NHS – and every time we have protected it.

In fact, the party that expanded the use of the private sector in the NHS the fastest was not this party, but the Labour Party.

The only party to ever cut spending on the NHS is not this party, but the Labour Party – that’s what they did in Wales.

And at the last election, it wasn’t the Labour Party that pledged to give the NHS the money it asked for to meet its five-year plan – it was this party, the Conservative Party…

investing an extra £10 billion in the NHS – more than its leaders asked for…

and this year more patients are being treated, and more operations are being carried out, by more doctors and more nurses than ever before.

That’s a tribute to everyone who works in the NHS.

But also to one man – Jeremy Hunt – who is one of the most passionate advocates for patients and for the doctors, nurses and others who work in our health service that I have ever known.

So let’s have no more of Labour’s absurd belief that they have a monopoly on compassion.

Let’s put an end to their sanctimonious pretence of moral superiority.

Let’s make clear that they have given up the right to call themselves the party of the NHS, the party of the workers, the party of public servants.

They gave up that right when they adopted the politics of division. When their extreme ideological fixations led them to simply stop listening to the country.

When they abandoned the centre ground.

And let us take this opportunity to show that we, the Conservative Party, truly are the party of the workers…

the party of public servants…

the party of the NHS.

Because we believe in public service. We believe in investing in and supporting the institutions that make our country great.

We believe in the good that government can do.

Government cannot stand aside when it sees social injustice and unfairness. If we want to make sure Britain is a country that works for everyone, government has to act to make sure opportunity is fairly shared.

And I want us to be a country where it doesn’t matter where you were born, who your parents are, where you went to school, what your accent sounds like, what god you worship, whether you’re a man or a woman, gay or straight, or black or white.

All that should matter is the talent you have and how hard you’re prepared to work.

But if we’re honest we’ll admit that’s simply not the case for everyone today.

Advancement in today’s Britain is still too often determined by wealth or circumstance.

By an accident of birth rather than talent.

By privilege not merit.

Rebalancing our economy is a start, but if we’re serious about overturning some of the longstanding injustices and barriers that stop working people from getting on, we need that economic reform to be allied with genuine and deep social reform too.

Because a society that works for everyone is a society based on fairness. And only genuine social reform can deliver it.

Genuine social reform means helping more people onto the housing ladder. It means making sure every child has access to a good school place.

It means never writing off people who can work and consigning them to a life on benefits, but giving them the chance to go out and earn a living and to enjoy the dignity that comes with a job well done.

But for those who can’t work, we must offer our full support – which is why it was so important that Damian Green announced on Saturday that we will end the mandatory retesting of those with chronic health conditions that only induces stress but does nothing at all to help.

And genuine social reform means addressing historic injustices that hold too many people back.

Some of my proudest moments as Home Secretary came when we began to tackle deep-seated and long-standing problems that few had dared to tackle before.

I introduced the first ever Modern Slavery Act, bringing in tough new penalties to put slave masters behind bars, with life sentences for the worst offenders.

I cut the police’s use of stop and search by almost two thirds and reduced the disproportionate targeting of young, black men.

And I know our impressive new Home Secretary Amber Rudd is committed to carrying on that work.

But injustices remain.

If you are from a black Caribbean background, you are three times more likely to be permanently excluded from school than other children.

If you are a black woman, you are seven times more likely to be detained under mental health legislation than a white woman.

People in ethnic minority households are almost twice as likely to live in relative poverty as white people.

But it is not just those from minority backgrounds who are affected.

White working class boys are less likely to go to university than any other group in society.

We cannot let this stand – not if a country that works for everyone is the principle that binds us all together.

That’s why I have launched an unprecedented audit of public services to shine a light on these racial disparities and let us do something about them.

Because they are all burning injustices, and I want this government – this Conservative Government – to fight every single one of them.

A society that works for everyone is one of fairness and opportunity. A society in which everyone has the chance to go as far as their talents will take them.

That’s why in one of the first speeches I gave as Prime Minister I set out my plans to transform Britain into a Great Meritocracy.

And that starts in our schools.

I want Britain to be a country in which every child has access to a good school place that’s right for that individual child.

Because Britain after Brexit will need to make use of all of the talent we have in this country.

We have come a long way.

Thanks to the free schools and academies programme and the efforts of teachers, heads and governors, there are now 1.4 million more children in good and outstanding schools compared with 2010.

But we need to go further. Because there are still one and a quarter million children in schools that are just not good enough.

And if you live in the Midlands or the North, you have less chance of attending a good school than children in the South.

This simply cannot go on.

That’s why Justine Greening and I have set out a new package of reforms, building on Michael Gove’s success, to increase the number of good school places across the country… so there’s not just a school place for every child, but a good school place for every child. A school place that suits the skills, interests and abilities of every single pupil.

That is why we want more of our great universities to set up or sponsor schools in the state sector – just as the University of Birmingham has done, a few miles from here.

It’s why we are saying to the great private schools that – in return for their charitable tax status – we want them to do more to take on children without the means to pay, or set up and sponsor good state schools.

It is why we want more good faith schools for parents and pupils who want them.

And it is why we have said – where there is demand from parents, where they will definitely take pupils from all backgrounds, where they will play a part in improving the quality of all schools in their area – we will lift the ban on establishing new grammar schools too.

And here we see the challenge.

Because for too long politicians have said to people and communities who are crying out for change that they can’t have what they want.

They’ve said we don’t think you should have it, even though we might enjoy those very same things for ourselves.

And you end up in the absurd situation where you stop these good, popular, life-changing schools from opening – by law.

Imagine. Think of what that says.

If you’re rich or well off, you can have a selective education for your child. You can send them to a selective private school. You can move to a better catchment area or afford to send them long distances to get the education you want.

But if you’re not, you can’t.

I can think of no better illustration of the problem – why ordinary working class people think it’s one rule for them, and another for everyone else.

Because the message we are sending them is this: we will not allow their children to have the same opportunities that wealthier children enjoy.

That is a scandal and we – the Conservative Party – must bring it to an end.

So my vision is for Britain to be a Great Meritocracy.

That’s what I’ve always believed in. The cause that everything I have ever done in politics has been designed to serve.

Because a country based on merit not privilege, is a country that’s fair. And when we overcome unfairness and injustice, we can build that new united Britain that we need.

And united, we can do great things.

We saw that in the summer in Rio. We saw how individual success was powered by collective effort. How the dedication and talent of one was supported by a united team.

And how a government’s determination – John Major’s Conservative Government’s determination – to step up and back Britain’s sporting success contributed to such a remarkable result.

We were honoured to welcome four members of the team – Helen Richardson-Walsh, Dame Sarah Storey, Vicky Thornley and Andrew Triggs-Hodge – to our conference on Monday.

And to them – and to every athlete and every member of Team and Paralympics GB – we say, thank you. You did your country proud.

It was a memorable summer for British sport, but one moment stood out for me above all other.

It was not from Rio. It happened later. Just a couple of weeks ago on the sun-drenched streets of Cozumel in Mexico.

There, our celebrated triathlon champion Jonny Brownlee was heading for glory, the finishing line in sight, when he faltered. Stopped. And was falling exhausted to the ground.

And just behind him, his brother Alistair – a tough competitor who typically yields to no one – had the chance to run on and steal the prize.

But seeing his brother’s struggle, he didn’t pass on by. As other competitors ran past, he stopped. Reached out his hand. And gently carried him home.

And there in that moment, we saw revealed an essential truth. That we succeed or fail together. We achieve together or fall short together.

And when one among us falters, our most basic human instinct is to put our own self-interest aside, to reach out our hand and help them over the line.

That’s why the central tenet of my belief is that there is more to life than individualism and self-interest.

We form families, communities, towns, cities, counties and nations. We have a responsibility to one another.

And I firmly believe that government has a responsibility too.

It is to act to encourage and nurture those relationships, networks and institutions – and to step up to correct injustices and tackle unfairness where it can – because these are the things that can drive us apart.

That’s why I say today – as I have always said – that my mission – and the mission of this party – is to build a country that truly works for everyone, not just the privileged few.

It’s why when I stood on the steps of Number 10 for the first time as Prime Minister 84 days ago, I said that the Government I lead will be driven not by the interests of the rich and powerful, but by the interests of ordinary, working class people.

And this week, we have shown the country that we mean business.

Not just protecting, but enhancing workers’ rights.

Building an economy that’s fair, where everyone plays by the same rules.

Getting more houses built. More doctors in the NHS.

Investing in things that will make our economy grow.

Hundreds of great new schools. Universities and fee-paying schools helping state schools to improve.

And yes, where parents want them and where they’ll improve standards for children of whatever background – the first new grammar schools to open in England for fifty years.

This is a bold plan to bring Britain together. To build a new united Britain, rooted in the centre ground.

An agenda for a new modern Conservatism. That understands the good government can do. That will never hesitate to face down the powerful when they abuse their positions of privilege.

That will always act in the interests of ordinary, working class people.

That’s what government’s about: action. It’s about doing something, not being someone.

About identifying injustices, finding solutions, driving change. Taking, not shirking, the big decisions. Having the courage to see things through.

It’s not always glamorous or exciting, but at its best it’s a noble calling.

And where many just see government as the problem, I want to show it can be part of the solution too.

And I know this to be true.

For as I leave the door of my office at Number 10, I pass that famous staircase – the portraits of prime ministers past lined up along the wall.

Men – and of course one woman – of consequence, who have steered this country through difficult times – and changed it for the better too.

There’s Disraeli, who saw division and worked to heal it. Churchill, who confronted evil and had the strength to overcome. Attlee, with the vision to build a great national institution. And Lady Thatcher who taught us we could dream great dreams again.

Those portraits remind me of the good that government can do.

That nothing good comes easy.

But with courage and vision and determination you can always see things through.

And as I pass them every day, I remember that our nation has been shaped by those who stepped up to be counted when the big moments came.

Such opportunities are rare, but we face such a moment today.

A moment that calls us to respond and to reshape our nation once again.

Not every generation is given this opportunity.

Not every generation called to step up in such a way.

But this is our generation’s moment.

To write a new future upon the page.

To bring power home and make decisions… here in Britain.

To take back control and shape our future… here in Britain.

To build an outward looking, confident, trading nation… here in Britain.

To build a stronger, fairer, brighter future… here in Britain.

That is the opportunity we have been given.

And the responsibility to grasp it falls upon us all.

So to everyone here this morning – and the millions beyond whether leavers or remain – I say:

Come with me and we’ll write that brighter future.

Come with me and we’ll make that change.

Come with me as we rise to meet this moment.

Come with me and together let’s seize the day.

Well I’ve come to the conclusion that politicians practice how to tell porkies with a straight-faced to the electorate, it can be difficult to work out where they stand and who they represent.

An innocent arriving in Britain from another country, or perhaps a distant galaxy, could be forgiven for accepting at face value Theresa May’s claim that the Tories are now “truly the party of the workers, the party of the NHS, the party of public servants.”

Her insistence that Britain will become a “great meritocracy” based on fairness and opportunity has echoes of the early years of Tony Blair.

Similarly, the Tory leader’s warning to the “big six” energy companies that she will intervene “where markets are dysfunctional” smacks of Ed Miliband’s pledge to “reset” the energy market. May didn’t emulate Miliband in threatening to impose a temporary tariff freeze, but her admirers applauded her comments nonetheless.

The Prime Minister must have been listening to speeches by Jeremy Corbyn or John McDonnell as she sympathised with working-class people frustrated over unaffordable housing, stagnating wages and insecure jobs and put employers on notice that not looking after staff or allowing pension funds to go bust “can’t go on any more.”

Into her list of working-class complaints she slipped in “pay undercut by low-skilled immigrants.”

It may have escaped her notice that immigrants of whatever skill level do not lay down pay rates. Employers do, while government sets the legal minimum wage.

And yet, in sad contrast to the glaring absence of proposals to tackle housing, low pay, secure jobs and so on, she made dealing with foreign-born workers a priority.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd floated a proposal on Tuesday that companies could be compelled to reveal the number of staff members born outside Britain to shame them into employing more British-born workers and reducing immigration.

The impact of this bullying on workplace relations aside, what if birthplace disparities aren’t easily discernible? Perhaps employees could have, as a condition of employment, to wear a tasteful addition to their clothing such as a nicely embroidered star, with different colours for various categories of workers. Who could possibly object?

Rudd’s revolting proposal has nothing to do with improving skills or employment prospects for British-born workers.

It is a deliberately divisive ploy to set workers at each other’s throats, make Britain a less hospitable place for people wishing to settle here and gain votes for the Tory Party among racists and xenophobes.

It is 14 years since May noted that many voters saw the Tories as the “nasty party,” in view of its hostility to the poor, claimants, racial minorities and LGBT people.

She is now trying a con-trick of global proportions by pinning that epithet on Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour, claiming that her Tory government will stand up for the weak against the strong.

Anyone tempted to believe that this leopard has changed her spots might ask themselves why the CBI bosses’ organisation and all May’s ministers who previously backed David Cameron and George Osborne’s capitalist austerity policies are right behind her.

They know that May’s rhetoric about workers, the NHS and public services is empty. It’s window dressing for the hard of thinking. The only positive aspect of her verbal lurch to the left is that she understands the attraction to voters of the new approach pushed by Corbyn and McDonnell.

Their commitment to social justice isn’t confined to conference speeches. It’s a daily reality that puts May’s political dishonesty to shame.

Two by-elections on 20 October 2016

jdrgjIt’s purported about 1.5 million Muslims have begun the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, unperturbed by 2015 stampeded which killed more than 2,000 people. The good news pilgrims face new safety measures, including tighter security and ID bracelets in a bid to prevent a report of repeat of last year’s disaster. The pilgrimage is among the largest religious gatherings in the world. The last time I went to Hajj was in 1990 and things have moved on since. I understand from friends the place of worship has changed and it’s a more environment friendly and after visiting the place more people still turns up as one set leaves it’s constantly business all the time.

Now we all have learned that David Cameron decided that he can’t take it any longer and will desert the ship before he is force to walk on the plank. It’s comes as no surprise that he threw in the towel and called it a day by resigning his seat in Witney Oxfordshire. What a chicken he is and the lame excuse he does not want to be a distraction for Ice Queen Theresa May.

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has warned companies that there will be no hiding place if they exploit their workers.

It’s been alleged that families are being financially crippled by county court judgements they knew nothing about. Banks, utility companies and parking cowboys are obtaining the judgements at an anonymous building in Northampton over debts as small as 1p. Somehow I have a ugly feeling that the 1p debt could be written off and the county courts could use their time to chase those who owes much more money than targeting the less well off. This reminds me of a novel of Charles Dickinson of Oliver Twist and the Victorian times.

Chris Hopson told the BBC’s Andrew Marr programme that “something has to give” and there should be a debate about which services to sacrifice “rather than pretend the gap doesn’t exist”.

Figures show waiting times and delayed hospital discharges at record levels.

The government says it is giving NHS England the £10bn it asked for.

welfare1Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has called for a “seven-day NHS” since 2015 after his department concluded that there was a “clear link between poorer outcomes for patients and uneven service provision at the weekend” Introducing a seven-day NHS also formed part of the Conservative Party’s manifesto, and its based on data which suggests that patients are 16% more likely to die if they are admitted on a Sunday compared with a Wednesday.

However, the reasons for this have been contested, and medical professionals agree that people who arrive in hospitals at weekends tend to be sicker than those who do so during the week.

NHS Providers, the organisation that represents hospitals in England, says unless urgent funding is provided it will have to cut staff, bring in charges or introduce “draconian rationing” of treatment, for example, of non-urgent operations.

It highlights that 80% of England’s acute hospitals are in financial deficit, compared with 5% three years ago – while missed A&E waiting time targets have risen from 10% to 90%. Mr Hopson said the NHS was under the “greatest pressure that we’ve been for a generation”.

He added: “Jeremy Hunt and others have made a very strong case for seven-day services, but it seems to us it’s impossible on the current level of staff and the current money we have available.”

Leaders of the cross-party campaign that persuaded the British people to leave the EU have dropped their pre-referendum pledge of a £350m-a-week spending bonanza for the NHS.

Many of those who headed the Vote Leave campaign, including its former chair, Labour MP Gisela Stuart, and Michael Gove, the Tory former justice secretary, are re-forming this weekend, creating a new pressure group called Change for Britain.

Other top names involved in the organisation, which says it is being established to help “deliver the UK’s referendum result in the most effective way”, include former chancellor Nigel (Lord) Lawson, Digby Jones, former head of the CBI, and David (Lord) Owen, the former Labour foreign secretary.

But despite the NHS pledge having been at the heart of their message in the run-up to the 23 June vote, and displayed on the official Vote Leave battlebus, the Change Britain website made no mention of the NHS in its manifesto about how to make a success of Brexit.

Instead Change for Britain said on its “Brexit Means Brexit” page that any savings made as a result of no longer having to pay into the EU budget (assuming the UK leaves the single market) should be spent on guaranteeing “continued funding for farming, science, universities and poorer regions of the UK”. The website was taken down, although cached versions of its pages were still accessible through search engines.

Anna Soubry, the pro-Remain Tory MP and former minister for small business, said it was outrageous that the Leave campaigners had “peddled that lie” during the campaign and were now quietly abandoning it.

The Remain camp argued all along that it was wrong to claim that the UK sent £350m a week to Brussels as this is the gross figure and does not take account of the large sums of money that come back in EU farm and other subsidies, including structural funds and education and research grants. The idea that so much extra money could be guaranteed for the NHS post-Brexit was also challenged as totally unrealistic.

Anna Soubry, a leading light in Open Britain, the successor to the Remain campaign, added: “They should all hang their heads in shame. There were many people, particularly in less wealthy areas, who were convinced by Leave’s claim that if we left the EU we would be able to pour millions more into the NHS. The danger now is these people will become even more disillusioned with all politicians because this lot misled them.”

Last weekend, Prime Minister Theresa May, speaking at the G20 summit in China, said she is unable to guarantee extra money for the health service post brexit came out against the points based immigration system which was the other central plank of the Brexit campaigners’ pitch to voters.

In an open letter, 30 Labour MPs – including former cabinet minister Ben Bradshaw, former shadow Europe minister Pat McFadden and ex-frontbenchers Emma Reynolds and Chuka Umunna call on the Brexit campaigners to admit the NHS pledge was a lie.“ There should be no escaping this pledge for the Leave campaign they cannot walk away from it now, disown it or pretend it never happened. They must either admit it was a lie and apologise to their voters, or justify it.”

On Saturday Downing Street made clear its annoyance with Liam Fox, the international trade secretary responsible for negotiating post-Brexit trade deals, who angered businesspeople by suggesting British executives would rather play golf than export their goods and services

I could not believe what I read in a national paper the International Trade Secretary Liam Fox quoted Britain is “too lazy and fat” with businessmen preferring “golf on a Friday afternoon” to trying to boost the country’s prosperity. Maybe this obnoxious minister should get out more instead of remaining in the Westminster Village bubble. He should get out more and get some exercise instead of targeting the business communities.

I’m sure this will comes as no surprise when I say once a Conservative, always a Conservative. A Libdem peer re-joins the Tory party Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne has returned to the Conservative party 21 years after she defected to the Fibdems. She is quoted she will re-join the party next week “with tremendous pleasure”. Her energies were dedicated to fighting for our new PM and her policies.

Hate to say this again. A lack of resources in Whitehall threatens UK’s successful exit from the exit from the EU, the head of the senior civil servants union has warned. Brexit will mean a cut in public spending unless funding is increased.

Two by-elections have been called and will take place on 20 October 2016 in the constituencies of Batley and Spen (Jo Cox) and the other in Witney (David Cameron). This is a calling notice for all Labour activists across the U.K. to descend in full force in both constituencies to help out in both regions by contacting the Regional Office for further details. I hope to see meet up with all Labour Activists in both constituencies to turn it to a Labour area.



Conservatives should pay their own policing of conference from their fatcat friends

Here is a political broadcast for all to see:

Firstly, in solidarity with all who attended the pro-European protest march in London, calling for our nation to be strengthening its ties to the continent following the brexit vote. Our aim was to continue to apply pressure on the government to delay activating the formal process of leaving the European Union (EU).
I don’t normally concur with Ice Queen Theresa May but she does raise a point when she says “Britain needs to prepare for some difficult times” ahead as it leaves the European Union. This will not be plain sailing for the UK and that talks will be held in 2017 and that the process would not kicked into the long grass. However I don’t believe Ice Queen May rules out having snap general elections.

No surprise that the establishment will have to hire extra civil servants to cope with the “phenomenally large task” of negotiation brexit, a former top Foreign Office diplomat has said. Sir Simon Fraser was a trade negotiator in Europe and permanent under-secretary at the Foreign Office and he is also quoted “serious thinking has barely began on the substantive issue”.

I’m glad that Ice Queen Theresa May acknowledged she has had a difficult start to the G20 summit as President Barack Obama said the UK would not be the priority for a US trade deal and Japan issued an unprecedented 15-page warning about the consequences of Brexit.

The prime minister had been hoping to pitch the UK as a global leader in free trade during her first major outing on the world stage at the G20 in summit in Hangzhou. However, she was immediately confronted with harsh warnings about the consequences of leaving the EU and diplomatic tensions with the Chinese over her concerns about their involvement in UK nuclear power.

After her first bilateral meeting with Obama, May was warned that the US wanted to focus on trade negotiations with the EU and a bloc of pacific nations before considering a deal with the UK. This was swiftly followed by a message from Japan to the UK that there could be a string of corporate exits from the UK unless some of the privileges that come with access to the single market are maintained.

The lengthy document from Tokyo gives a list of possible consequences of Brexit and a series of specific requests from Japanese businesses. About half of Japanese investment in the EU comes to the UK, including from companies such as Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nomura and Daiwa.

“Japanese businesses with their European headquarters in the UK may decide to transfer their head-office function to continental Europe if EU laws cease to be applicable in the UK after its withdrawal,” the report concludes.

It says: “In light of the fact that a number of Japanese businesses, invited by the government in some cases, have invested actively to the UK, which was seen to be a gateway to Europe, and have established value-chains across Europe, we strongly request that the UK will consider this fact seriously and respond in a responsible manner to minimise any harmful effects on these businesses.”

Earlier, Obama had promised to work hard to stop “adverse effects” of Brexit and assured the UK there was still a “very special relationship” between the two nations.

But he also raised the risk of some trading relations unraveling and made clear that it “would not make sense to put aside” existing negotiations with big blocs of countries in order to do an immediate deal with the UK.

Asked whether he stood by his warnings against Brexit and claim that Britain would go to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals, Obama repeated his belief that the world would benefit from the UK being a member of the EU.

“I’ve committed to Theresa that we will consult closely with her as she and her government move forward on Brexit negotiations to make sure we don’t see adverse effects in our trading and commercial relationship. Obviously there is an enormous amount of trade that already takes place … That is not going to stop. And we are going to do everything we can to make sure the consequences of the decision don’t end up unravelling what is already a very strong and robust economic relationship.

“But first things first. The first task is figuring out what Brexit means with respect to Europe. And our first task is making sure we go forward on TTIP negotiations in which we have already invested a lot of time and effort.”

It comes after the prime minister warned on her flight to China that there would be “difficult times ahead” for the economy after leaving the EU.

The prime minister said the economy was in better shape than some had predicted following the vote for Brexit. However, May said she was not expecting an easy ride, as her ministers examine the possibility of a “fiscal reset” at the autumn statement – potentially abandoning some of the financial strategies and targets of former chancellor George Osborne.

Hey folks, it’s no surprise to read that Nick Clegg (Bed partner of David Cameron) spelling the beans on the former chancellor George Osborne of seeing welfare as a “bottomless pit of savings just to cut benefits to boost the Conservatives popularity”. This is in light of number focus groups suggested potential Tory voters were anti-welfare. He also claims that social housing created Labour voters. It’s no wonder the Conservatives are punishing desperate families by refusing to build more council housing. See article on my blog entitled Satire: shortage of housing and homelessness.


Nobody likes to go on strike, this is a last resort especially when it comes at the time of austerity, I refer to our junior doctors five day strikes in England. Sure I make no apologies for saying I’m in solidarity with our junior doctors. Put yourself in their position, you have a contract that you were better than the new one would you hold on to it and fight tooth and nail to keep it or will you take on a new contract that will less attractive and more workload with less pay which one will you keep. The British Medical Association Members (BMA) voted to keep the current contract and the establishment decided to pull the rug under them what would you do. On August 31 the BMA council voted to endorse a programme of further industrial action, proposed by the junior doctors committee (JDC), just weeks before the first group of junior doctors are to be faced with the new contract. Strike action is planned for October, November and December.

Consultants and others medics not classified as junior doctors will be staffing the NHS, as was the case during strike action taken earlier this year, in order to ensure our patients are not left without medical assistance.

The media spin is once again in overdrive and on cue to portray junior doctors as reckless anarchists who are striking to the detriment of patients in order to score political points.

One does not need a medical degree to figure out that individuals who make immense sacrifices to get into and through medical school, to be followed upon graduation by further sacrifices to their free time, comfort, social and family lives (to the extent that their own physical and mental health sometimes suffers) in order to care for the sick, would suddenly choose to put patients at risk and lose a week’s pay while doing so. Junior doctors, like most other people, are only a pay cheque or two away from being unable to pay their mortgages or rent or put food on the table.  

I also use the NHS, as do my friends and family. As anyone who has visited a hospital during the weekend will tell you, a seven-day NHS already exists, albeit one staffed by overworked and overstretched staff.

Jeremy Hunt’s claim, based upon carefully chosen statistics, which an additional 6,000 annual deaths occur during the weekend, has been soundly debunked. Furthermore, a report leaked by the Department of Health earlier this year indicated that there was no evidence that increased staffing levels on weekends would actually reduce mortality among patients admitted during those days, removing a linchpin from Hunt’s argument that extra staff are needed.

The report also showed that if hospitals are to function on weekends, as they do Monday to Friday, an additional 11,000 staff (including doctors and nurses) would be required, on top of an annual cost of £900 million.

Further evidence indicating junior doctors are already overstretched is provided by the Mind the Rota Gap study which showed that in London, as across the rest of England, there is a massive shortage of junior doctors.

This often results in extra work being piled upon existing medics or gaps in rotas not being filled.

Further depleting existing junior doctor numbers Monday to Friday, in order to spread us out across the whole week, will not only put patients at risk during the first five days of the week but will also not reduce weekend mortality.

We all want to give our existing and potential patients, which include ourselves, our colleagues and our families, the very best possible care but we desperately need the additional staff and funding to do so.
Otherwise the NHS is being set up to fail in order to usher in a system of private healthcare, perhaps even a US-style healthcare system complete with the shortcomings for those unable to afford what is surely a human right.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry it’s been purported the establishment should ignore calls to limit future increase to the national living wage a think tank said. The Living Wage of £7:20 per hour was introduced in April, benefiting more than a million staff aged 25 and over. Some business organisations have been lobbying the government to restrain future increases in hourly rate.

It’s been rumoured that a construction of a UK funding a Great Wall near Calais. It will be 13 feet wall will run for 6 miles along both sides of the main road to Calais port. This does rings some alarm bells and reminds me of the Great Wall of China to keep illegal immigrants during the Ming period.

Like or loath Mark Carney he has hit the nail on the head, no doubt the Leave Campaigner want their pound of flesh as he defended his action to mitigate the impact of Brexit. He said “Timely, comprehensive and concrete” action, which acted to “support cushion and help the economy to adjust”. Last month’s rate to cut to an historic low of 0.25% helped support house prices and the wider economy, he added. He further added he was “absolutely serene” about the Bank’s preparations for the impact from the Brexit vote.

Since David Cameron stepped down as Prime Minister after 6 years it has been alleged that enough local authority places to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees over the next four years have now been secured. U.K. was on track to deliver on the promise by the previous prime minister. A total of 10 million has been pledged for language tuition to help refugees integrate. I bet my last pound that the likes of BritianFirst, UKIP, and BNP will be happy with this statement as they are more incline to send them back to their homes in the war torn country. Hope not hate is my message to those ignorant people.

I’m glad that Ice Queen Theresa May has begun to cast doubt on the feasibility of a points-based system for controlling immigration into the UK, one of the key promises of Leave campaigners during the EU referendum. She acknowledged people had voted for more control on the numbers of people moving to UK will work.

Here is something to remember what Theresa May said at the Police Federation Conference:

It is alleged that hate crime prosecutions in England and Wales fell by 10% last year even though the number of recorded incidents increased, figures have suggested. Freedom of information figures suggest hate crimes increased by 20% last year to more than 60,000 yet police referrals to prosecutors fell by 1,379. Experts say hate crimes are now at a more predictable level since the spike was reported around the EU referendum. If I’m honest I think if the Conservatives had their way they would be more than happy to get rid of freedom of information (FOI). Give thanks and praises for a Labour Government for introducing the act.

Conference, conference, oh before Labour delegates starts to get into panic mode I’m not referring to the Labour Conference. I’m simply referring to the Conservative Conference in Birmingham which will be held at the International Conference Centre for the next three years and to add insult to injury it’s the West Midlands Police has to folk out the sum of £1.5 million for safety operations. It’s estimated around £500,000 a timeworn the Fatcats meets in Birmingham in October and return in 2018, and 2020.

I understand that the Police Crime Commissioner has written to the Home Secretary Amber Rodd to ask for a discussion about a “fairer arrangement”.

As much one disagree that the West Midlands Police having to pay for this expensive junket in my opinion it should come out the Conservative budget. The money spent could be put to more use by recruiting more bobby on the beat. Yes, I like a good moan too and when I look around in the West Midlands Region with the increase in foodbanks and poverty in place and across the United Kingdom the establishment lives in their own bubble in the Westminster Village. The next time you speak to or visit your local councillors, Member of European and member Parliaments ask them what they have done to help feed the homeless and needy in their ward and constituency.

Satire: Shortage of Housing and Homelessness

Here is something the Ice Queen Theresa May will have to address as it continues to happen under her watch which she was a minister under the Tory Coalition to the present time:

Well what have here, the alleged Cameron guilty of pay cronyism to date when he left as Prime Minister if true then those in concerned should back it back. What are the chances of this happening your guess is good as mine a big no they won’t pay it back unless it goes to employment tribunal but even then they may or may not win their case. It is purported that the Civil Service World reported that seven Downing Street special advisors got raises as much as £14, 976 after last year’s elections on top of their salary.

It’s further purported that overseas investment into UK with a record number of investments were made by foreign companies up by 11% on the previous year. Not a lot have been mentioned about people who are on state benefits that had a £30:00 cut on their benefit per year. Well done Mr and Mrs Politicians for looking after yourselves and your fatcat friends whilst the poor get poorer. Foodbanks at a all-time high which most of my followers will know of someone who falls into this category. Then there is an endemic of housing shortage which parliament is happy to brush under the carpet and fail to acknowledge its happening on their watch which is current.

Ice Queen Theresa May is being urged to consider a policy under which housing rents would be linked to local wage levels.

The call, in a report suggesting the government consider a radical new policy of “living rents”, comes as the prime minister chairs the first session of her social reform committee, which will look into how to make housing more affordable for families.

The prime minister has put together a team of 11 cabinet ministers, including Sajid Javid who will oversee housing as communities secretary. She said the group would meet regularly to discuss making “life easier for the majority of people in this country who just about manage”.

As well as housing it will look at issues such as job security, education and the way that non-white people are treated by public services.

May said she wanted ministers to focus on vulnerable individuals but also a much wider group who just get by. “You might have a job but you don’t always have job security,” she said. “You may have your own home, but you worry about paying a mortgage. You can just about manage but you worry about the cost of living and getting your kids into a good school.

See article below:


There are those who will openly say that Labour did not do a lot to address this issue after 13 years in power. Under their watch they did build some houses but it was out of reach of working class pockets. Since the Tory coalition they did not want to rock the boat but instead blamed Labour of mismanagement during their five years in government. Since last year the Tories came into power they are more than happy to continue to blame Labour. I hate to disappoint Ice Queen Theresa May since David Cameron stepped down as Prime Minister over brexit the buck stops with you, you were on his watch too and had a hand in it. There is no getting away from it no matter how you rebrand it or no amount of spin will do.

They have the cheek to say the best solution to solve the social housing is to reintroduce the right to buy which was abolished under Labour. What is wrong about the right to buy you may ask. Councils across the UK have been held back from building truly afford housing which restricts them from building more houses. If I’m honest I say that a Labour, Coalition, and Tory Governments are to blame.

Successful governments in UK have failed to address mental health properly which is an added stress to local services ie Council Housing Departments and police services which are at bursting point. Since the introduction of Care in the Community the rate of mental health hospitals closed and offering very little support for them to integrate into the community. The government has a lot to answer for leaving people with mental health problems. Instead voluntary sectors that made a mint out of the situation during the late 1970s to 2010 then they soon realized the so called Big Society introduced by the coalition was a con they saw their funding cut and they had to lay off staff. Instead the coalition came out with a slogan “We Are All in It Together” which did not last for long.Council Housing Departments across the UK started to invest in Housing Liaising Boards the idea was to use them as advisory group to advise Housing Departments the unfortunate thing about them is the tenants have very little knowledge how to address the situations of mental health instead they are happy to give a good talk but with little action. Most of them talks about is housing repairs, bulk rubbish, anti-social behavior,  car parking and some are still happy with housing stock transfer. I do recall the three major trade unions were against the idea and the battle was lost as the tenants won the the day. There are tenants who have been on the waiting list to move to other property and when they see asylum seekers and refugees moving into some accommodation then resentment comes to play and they don’t know what their circumstances are on why they managed to move into the property instead of them. If the truth is to be told the establishment are happy to let the council estates to be run down so they can sell it to the highest bidder to build houses and flats only for the contractors to sell them to the wealthy investors from abroad and to UK citizens who can afford the inflatable prices. In some parts of London Councils are moving tenants out of their properties and moving them some 60 miles away and further. Oh before I forget not all council tenants are on full benefits as some of them do pay their taxes and they are still not receiving a decent housing service and some end up in hostels or even worse made homeless.

Although there is some evidence on a small scale that Housing Associations are building some housing they are still overpriced and they rather rent it to people on a certain income which means that working class don’t get a look in as they cannot afford the rent and to add insult to injury there is a benefit cap which disadvantage people who are on benefits. If you are on universal credit one of the idea is that people on benefits are to pay their own rent and council tax instead of the old system which made it easier for it being paid directly to the agencies from the Department of Works and Pension. Whilst I concur that, that people should be held responsible for paying their rent, and council tax directly to the various departments there are some people who does not know how to budget and I’m not saying this in a negative way there are people who are registered as Learning Disability and some have to depend on their carers to pay their rent, and council tax another forgotten lot which the establishment have misplaced also not forgetting people with physical disabilities and hidden disabilities.

See below a youtube on Supported Accommodation:

The government are also failing to address care homes which are both in Local Government, Health and Voluntary Sectors which are closing at an alarming rate only for the land to sold to the highest bidder for  multiplex projects which all monies to go back to central government instead of going directly to local government they are left to put in a bid just to get the money.

The establishment are still failing to address homelessness which has increased and charities started to feed the homeless and rough sleepers to provide them with a hot meal during the weekends out of humanity in some cases. But I do know of one charity that really does it out of humanity and this is not an easy task to do but give credit where it’s due they have been around for three years come rain, sun or snow they continue to provide food for the homeless and rough sleepers without central government, local government, or European funding they receive donations from the public to feed them which can be a thankless task.

Satire: who are you kidding Ice Queen Theresa May

Here is a Political Broadcast of what Ice Queen Teresa May will outline of a Conservative Government under her Leadership. You have been warned this will bring tears to your eyes:

Recently I had the opportunity to be invited to socialist wedding reception (not mine) which I was the best man. Intriguingly some people would say that there is no such thing but there is something called working man wedding to be honest I would concur to all. A group of us went out for a cigarette break and I declined but hopped instead to break with tradition I lit up a Havana Cigar for the occasion some of the wedding guests joined in the conversation about changing times both in Labour Party and the present Tory establishment. Such there are something we all concur with and we can all beg to disagree.

Tory, UKIP Greens, Libdems and Labour all claims to be the party of working peope the difference is it’s called re branding policies to convince their floating voters to hoodwink them vote for a particular party and after the elections it’s back to normal business again which is more of the same crap dished out in a package of deceit around the West Minister Village. In some part of the country politicians who are elected to represent the views of the constituency are not fully represented for various reasons and report back to the constituents. There are some Members of Parliament (MP) which includes local representatives (Local Councillors) that are good at using spin doctoring and some are very bad at it. And there are some Members of Parliament and Local Councillors don’t report back to their constituents let along to give a report back to both their retrospective constituencies and wards yet members still elect them to represent their views it’s just not good enough unfortunately this is a regular occurrence with all political parties.

There are issues I strongly have to raise an objection that a Tory establishment use their brand of spin to address the nation of Modern Day Slavery, National Minimum Wage National Living Wage, Academies, NHS and the list goes on as if it was a conservative Government introduced those policies when it was a Labour Government that introduced those act of Parliament then only for the conservatives to claim credit for it.

This comes as no surprise to all that under David Cameron government those Syrian refuges will be allowed to come to UK from the refugee camps and under Ice Queen Teresa May premiership that a report has said the UK Government is failing to meet its promise to accommodate 20,000 Syrians by 2020, and called the UK’s coastal security “under-resourced”.

The Home Office Select Committee report said that “there is scant evidence that the Government is on track to meet its commitment to resettle 20,000 Syrians by 2020”.

The report, which for the first time published the number of refugees placed in different parts of the UK, said many areas are “not pulling their weight” in accommodating them, and called on ministers to help bring more Syrian refugees into their constituencies. In September 2015 David Cameron told MPs the UK would accept up to 20,000 refugees from Syria over the next five years, and said the UK had a “moral responsibility” to those living in camps bordering Syria.

Here is song worthwhile listening to as it brings it home. Lots of people won’t get no super tonight and lots of people won’t get no justice tonight:

I have to say that one fully concur with the former shadow home secretary (Yvette Cooper) statement that  it is three months since the Dubs Amendment in the House of Lords forced the government to say it would accept some child refugees, but it emerged this week that fewer than 20 have arrived so far.  “Britain should be stepping up and showing leadership in the face of this crisis yet this report suggests we are set to miss the government’s target of resettling 20,000 Syrian refugees here in Britain by 2020.

“Three months after the Dubs amendment, hardly any children have been helped at all – it is shameful that the British government has done almost nothing to bring desperate child refugees here.

“Theresa May has shown no leadership on this issue, dragging her feet at every turn. As prime minister, she now has a duty to ensure the UK fulfils the promises we made.”

“Britain should be stepping up and showing leadership in the face of this crisis yet this report suggests we are set to miss the government’s target of resettling 20,000 Syrian refugees here in Britain by 2020.

“Three months after the Dubs amendment, hardly any children have been helped at all it is shameful that the British government has done almost nothing to bring desperate child refugees here.

“Theresa May has shown no leadership on this issue, dragging her feet at every turn. As prime minister, she now has a duty to ensure the UK fulfils the promises we made.”

Remember when Theresa May when she was Home Secretary she appointed a New Zealand high court judge, well it’s a sad day for the people who suffered child abuse again the person in concern handed in her resignation this is the third person to do so under the Conservative Government watch. The investigation was set up in March 2015 to examine claims made against public and private institutions. Judge Goddard was selected after two previous chairwoman quit.

How ironic can Theresa May get under a Labour Government back in 1998 the government at the time banned Grammar Schools now she is reversing the ban to expand the Grammar Schools  to please the Brexit MPs. Well done Ms. Politician for putting equality back to the dark ages of the Victorian years. Ask yourselves this question, why Ice Queen Theresa May did not get rid of Jeremy Hunt from the front-bench. I can only come to the conclusion that she and her associates what to privatise our beloved NHS by attacking our junior doctors’ contract here is an article which sums it up eloquently by Dr Rosena Allin-Khan:

Jeremy Hunt recently charged a group of junior doctors £150,000 to take him to court over the ­increasingly bitter contracts dispute.

This junior doctor, now an MP can’t be charged, won’t be silenced and is determined to speak out and spread the word.

As an A&E doctor at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, South London, I, like many others, left my young children to work nights and ­weekends. My department operated seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Despite claims to the contrary, the Tories never had the best ­interests of patients or doctor at heart. Their seven-day week proposals were based on a false premise and flawed from the beginning. Recently leaked evidence actually shows them to be potentially dangerous.

I know hospital doctors who have finished long night shifts and gone straight on to the next day shift, ­simply because of staff shortages.

See the rest of the article below:


So it no surprise that the Conservatives wants to continue with an another crake of the whip which dates back to the 1992 as they started to attack by closing down on Mental Health and Learning Difficulties Hospitals and by contracting out the cleaning services department by introducing Private Finance Initiative. Then when a Labour Government into power they continued using PFI on a much wider scale.

NHS faces having to close hospitals, cut treatments and make patients wait longer to save £22billion by 2020, a think-tank claims.

Without extra cash or reforms it will have to make “unpalatable” choices, the Nuffield Trust have said. See article below:


I do recall I did an article about housing crisis in my last blog https://gordonlyew.wordpress.com/2016/07/22/satire-housing-crisis/

This has now been reported that home ownership has fallen to its lowest level in 30 years as the growing gap between earnings and property prices has created a housing crisis that extends beyond London to cities including Manchester.

The struggle to get on the housing ladder is not just a feature of the London property market, according to a new report by the Resolution Foundation thinktank, with Greater Manchester seeing as big a slump in ownership since its peak in the early 2000s as parts of the capital, and cities in Yorkshire and the West Midlands also seeing sharp drops. Home ownership across England reached a peak in April 2003, when 71% of households owned their home, either outright or with a mortgage, but by February this year the figure had fallen to 64%, the Resolution Foundation said.

The figure is the lowest since 1986, when home ownership levels were on the way up, with a housing market boom fuelled by the deregulation of the mortgage industry and the introduction of the right to buy Council House Scheme by Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government.

This will also come as no surprise to all of us coming from a troy government they refuse to abandon the “triple lock” for protecting state pensions would be a “grand betrayal” of pensioners, Labour warned.

State pensions increase annually by the inflation rate, average earnings or 2.5 per cent, whichever is highest, known as the triple lock. But Tory peer Baroness Altmann, who lost her post as pensions minister in Theresa May’s reshuffle, wants the 2.5 per cent safety net scrapped. She said she’d tried to persuade David Cameron to drop the “totemic” guarantee but thought it could be easier to get rid of under Ice Queen May.

Lady Altmann told The Observer the safety net “doesn’t make any sense” and would be “out of proportion” in a period of deflation.

Shadow work and pensions secretary Debbie Abrahams said: “The Tories went to the country on a solemn promise to protect pensioners, saying their triple lock was guaranteed, that people could trust them, now we hear they’re considering dumping it.

“Make no mistake, this would be a grand betrayal a shocking broken promise hitting pensioners in the pocket.”

National Pensioners’ Convention officer Neil Duncan-Jordan in an interview has confirmed that “The fact is that the UK has got one of the lowest pensions in the developed world.

“Even now it is only £119 a week, and the 2.5 per cent guaranteed increase is the least people need to ensure their income does not fall any further.”

So it’s no wonder why that Ice Queen Theresa May want to distance herself from her Tory counterpart in the Lords.

Does this sends alarm bells ringing Theresa May wants stamp out modern slavery has been undermined by her shameful track record in tackling child victims of slavery during her tenure as home secretary.

The Prime Minister has pledged a £33 million investment aimed at clamping down on people-trafficking routes and has announced that she will chair a new task force set up to co-ordinate the government’s response to slavery.

The government has also asked Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) to assess the police response to modern slavery.

However shadow minister for preventing abuse Sarah Champion, who said she is “not optimistic” given Ms May’s track record as home secretary.

She said the PM “should be ashamed” for not acting on the protection of children in the Modern Slavery Act.

Sarah Champion MP highlighted that last year 60 per cent of the 982 child victims of modern slavery went missing within days of being taken into local authority care.

She said the children are “presumed to be back with their traffickers, where they would continue to be exploited and abused. “This is simply not good enough.

“Modern slavery is on the increase but under Theresa May’s watch, the Police and Border Force have been cut and her government cut local authorities by over 40 per cent.

“If Theresa May is serious about tackling slavery, she needs to give professionals the resources to stamp it out.”

Britain’s anti-slavery commissioner Kevin Hyland also warned that child people-trafficking cases are not being investigated properly.

“What’s alarming about that is that we do have people reporting to the authorities, but then they are not being properly investigated,” he said.

Mr Hyland said that there were 986 cases involving children last year but only 928 recorded as crimes.

Ministers estimate there are between 10,000 and 13,000 potential victims of slavery in Britain.

A review by barrister Caroline Haughey to mark the first anniversary of the Modern Slavery Act found that 289 modern slavery offences were prosecuted in 2015.

She also found a 40 per cent rise in the number of victims referred for support.

How low can this establishment get by axing maintenance grants for the poorest undergraduates to replace them with loans will saddle them with “a lifetime of debt.

Now who is playing party political politics by ending the grants worth around £3,500 a year? It was announced that loans are available but would need repaying once a graduate starts earning £21,000 or more.

This change by the Tories will hit students from low-income families who are more likely to have applied for grants and are less able to afford high rents and living costs, critics say.

The NUS warned the new loans in addition to those taken out by students having to stump up tuition fees of up to £9,000 a year would put people off applying for university altogether.

Let us all be reminded that it was Labour that introduced the tuition fees, Academies, and the Conservatives continued with the policy from a Labour Government.

All of sudden Theresa May wants to “tackle corporate irresponsibility and reform capitalism to make sure it works for everyone not just the privileged few.”

She was responding to the joint report of parliamentary committees on the collapse of BHS, which held Sir Philip Green, other company directors and their financial advisers responsible for displaying the “unacceptable face of capitalism.”

Eleven thousand BHS workers are losing their jobs and 22,000 past and present employees have been robbed of their pensions to the tune of £571 million. Theft and fraud on such a scale should be a matter for the criminal justice system, not merely the subject of a squabble over whether to revoke one person’s knighthood.

But the likelihood in Great Britain plc is, of course, that nobody will go to prison over the BHS scandal. Whether it’s mis-selling pensions and insurance, rigging the financial markets or laundering the ill-gotten gains of overseas crooks and dictators, the corporate culprits are rarely, if ever, put in the dock, never mind prison.

Stealing a packet of food or a posh jacket from a high street store is far more likely to result in a jail sentence.

Prime Minister May is fully aware that big business capitalism is generating inequality and resentment among millions of people who share little or nothing of the wealth produced by the working class.

Two weeks ago, launching her Tory leadership campaign, she insisted that anger and frustration had played an important part in the EU poll result.

“Make no mistake, the referendum was a vote to leave the European Union but it was also a vote for serious change,” she told her audience in Birmingham. “The only surprise is that there is so much surprise in Westminster about the public’s appetite for change.”

I make no bones about it that I will never trust the Conservatives, Libdems, UKIP, or Greens to be the parties of working people  I rather have a Labour Government anytime of the day.




Homelessness on the increase whilst this establishment sits on their hands

Here is a video I came across please watch the good work they do:

Enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee in one hand and a banana bap in the other hand whilst having a sip started to reflect of yesterday events of homelessness, foodbanks, hate crimes, and mental health have been increasing. The nation has witnessed the coronation of a new Prime Minister (Ice Queen Theresa May) which the nation did not vote her to lead the country. I do recall the public voted for David Cameron to lead the nation.

Homelessness and food banks continue increasing they are the forgotten lot whilst those Member of Parliament (MPs) retreat to their holidays and in a position to have somewhere to rest their head every night and in the morning they walk pass them on the streets. Some people would argue that they can do more to help themselves to get on the council housing waiting list. This may be the case to argue this is more of a kind reminder at some stage of our lives we all faced being homeless at one stage and we would not wish our children to go through this in today’s world. Central government can do more to simulate our economy instead what are we witnessing is more businesses are closing down with little job prospects. Instead companies they are moving productions to other parts of the world all in the name of cheaper labor.

Ice Queen Theresa May thou art a boil as before for years I have mentioned that the day when we see a Conservative Government will reduce the minimum wage in poorer areas. See article below:

Most of the times many of us continue to read in the press and social media about UK going into meltdown during and after post brexit this does not help the ordinary person who have to depend on their job prospects they want to know they will be able to pay their bills on time and provide rice on their table to feed their family for the week or the month.  The outcome of last month’s referendum “adds to the uncertainty” for the global economy, the group of the world’s 20 largest economies said.

It urged the UK to remain “a close partner of the EU”, amid concerns Brexit talks could be acrimonious.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said Brexit had come up “a great deal” at the G20.

“The reality is there will be a measure of uncertainty continuing right up to the conclusion of our negotiations with the EU,” he told reporters.

Following the meeting in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 group said it had the tools to cope with the potential economic and financial consequences from the referendum result. Other factors complicating the world economy include geopolitical conflicts, terrorism and refugee flows, according to the G20.

jpeg1The president of Germany’s central bank, Jens Weidmann, said there were no signs yet that economic development in Europe had been affected by the UK’s referendum on 23 June.

The G20 members agreed that despite the Brexit vote the global economy would improve in 2016 and 2017, Mr Weidmann said. However, new figures on UK companies in the three months to the end of June have raised concerns about the health of the economy before the Brexit vote.

Sixty-six UK listed companies issued profit warnings in the second quarter, which was the most for that period since the financial crisis in 2008, according to accountants EY.

Alan Hudson, EY’s head of restructuring in the UK and Ireland, said: “It’s been a dizzyingly unpredictable time since the UK voted to leave the European Union.

“What we saw in the second quarter – and are still seeing now – is the initial impact of this uncertainty.”

Analysts expect economic data on Wednesday to show the UK economy grew by about 0.5% in the second quarter compared with the previous three months. Its been purported that Last week the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for UK economic growth, from 1.9% to 1.7% for 2016, and for the global economy, from 3.2% to 3.1%.

jpeg2On Sunday IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said the G20 had taken place at a time of “political uncertainty from the Brexit vote and continued financial market volatility”.

In a statement the G20 finance officials said the global economic recovery was continuing “but remains weaker than desirable”.

Separately, G20 policymakers said they recognised that excess steel supply was a global issue.

The excess capacity of steel has had a negative impact on trade and workers and requires a collective response, they said. It further alleged that  Britain just got its first concrete sign that the British exit from the European Union, or Brexit, will crush the nation’s economy after a grim set of PMI data released by Markit on Friday morning showed a “dramatic deterioration” in the economy since the UK voted to leave the EU.

Markit’s flash PMI readings for the UK’s economy showed that composite output fell to its lowest level since March 2009, during the tail end of the global financial crisis.

Here is the scoreboard:

Services PMI 47.4, down from 52.3 in June and at an 87-month low. The figure was well below the 49.2 forecast.

Manufacturing PMI 49.1, a 44-month low, and well below the expected 50 reading.

Composite PMI 47.7, a drop from 52.4 in June, and at an 87-month low.

The PMI, or purchasing managers index, figures from Markit are given as a number between 0 and 100.

Anything above 50 signals growth, while anything below means a contraction in activity so the higher the better.

The figures are a flash reading, meaning they could easily be revised upward or downward when final readings come in at the end of the month.

Speaking about the data, Markit’s chief economist, Chris Williamson, said (emphasis ours):

“July saw a dramatic deterioration in the economy, with business activity slumping at the fastest rate since the height of the global financial crisis in early-2009.

“The downturn, whether manifesting itself in order book cancellations, a lack of new orders or the postponement or halting of projects, was most commonly attributed in one way or another to ‘Brexit.'”

“The collapse in the composite PMI to its lowest level since April 2009 provides the first major evidence that the U.K. is entering a sharp downturn. If the PMI remains at July’s level in August and September, it will be consistent on past form with a 0.4% quarter-on-quarter decline in GDP in Q3. The confidence shock from the Leave vote might wear off over the coming months, but the decline in the new orders index to just 46.2, from 53.0 in June, points to even faster falls in output ahead.”jpeg3

Earlier Friday, Markit data showed that the eurozone economy was showing “surprising resilience” to the Brexit vote, with PMIs falling a little in June but beating the expectations of economists polled before the release.

This gets even better coming from the new chancellor of the exchequer is reaching for his own version that, in the wake of a massive fall in the purchasing managers indices (PMI) that measure business activity, he was considering a “reset of fiscal policy”. The new Government has already ditched its previous ambition of hitting a surplus in the public finances by the end of the decade. That much we knew already. Indeed, before he left office, George Osborne himself ditched that ambition.

But crucially, he said, that didn’t mean having to throw out his fiscal rules – the Fiscal Charter – which only insist you run a surplus if the economy is not facing a slowdown.

Since there is likely to be a slowdown perhaps a recession he said missing the surplus was entirely consistent with the Charter. The fact that the PMI surveys are now pointing towards a 2009-style slump would suggest that Britain may well be using that loophole – borrowing while growth is below 1% for quite some time.

However, what’s interesting about Philip Hammond’s comments is that he hinted he may well replace the charter altogether. He said that at the Autumn Statement towards the end of the year he will “have to put something else in place. Exactly what that framework is, we’ll see.”

So is the Fiscal Charter, the famous act that legally binds the Government to hitting a surplus, about to be axed entirely. Then again, we are in a chaotic period of Government – much that seems certain can crumble in the following weeks.

Even after the recession has passed, it is hard to see how Mr Hammond can easily spend billions more on investment in the coming years without falling foul of the rule.

So, at the very least, it is quite possible he modifies the Charter this winter.

For the time being all we have to go on is that word: “reset”.

A clever piece of vague political messaging Or a signal he really plans to throw out his predecessor’s golden rule.

I fully support the view of our Labour MEPs Labour MEPs have warned that Britain must continue to enforce EU anti-tax dodging laws in any post-Brexit settlement, following today’s announcement by the European Commission of new measures to enhance transparency in the wake of the Panama Papers scandal.

The main proposals include: better connecting anti-money laundering rules with anti-tax avoidance rules; improving information exchange on beneficial ownership; increasing oversight of the enablers and promoters of aggressive tax planning; promoting higher tax good governance standards worldwide; and improving the protection of whistleblowers.

Anneliese Dodds MEP, Labour’s European Parliament spokesperson on tax, said:

“When we think about Britain’s post-EU future, we have to make absolutely sure that major advances like these in the fight against tax avoidance are not lost. The government should guarantee that, whatever the final shape of our relationship with the EU, the UK continues to uphold the very high standards set by the EU when it comes to fighting for tax justice.

“Today is a good day in the fight for tax justice. This is real progress, and shows once again that the EU is leading the way in the fight against tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance. These are cross-border problems that require cross-border solutions in order to be fixed.

“For years now, Labour politicians in both the UK and Europe have been calling for more transparency when it comes to finding out who really owns our companies and trusts. It is only by having that information that we can stop people from using opaque structures to avoid the tax they should rightly be paying.

“Now the European Commission is proposing that all information about beneficial ownership of companies should be public, and that information about trusts should be available to anyone who can demonstrate that they have a legitimate interest in finding out more.”  Labour MEPs will vote for a report calling for further action to fight tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance, including a blacklist of tax havens, investigations into the roles of banks and tax advisers, and greater international cooperation.

Payments from a £3bn European development fund were suspended indefinitely by the UK Government, just days after the vote to leave the EU. In a move that exposes the almost immediate impact of Brexit on the UK economy, businesses say they have been told they will not now receive money that was due to be paid out under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The fund, designed to promote economic growth, has to be matched by payments from member states and there was speculation the UK Treasury may be concerned about whether the Government can afford to continue paying its share, particularly if it had to meet any shortfall for schemes which extend into the post-Brexit period.

A letter to the then Chancellor George Osborne from a group of London-based companies, which has been seen by The Independent, appealed for the “pause” to be lifted. The letter – written by John Spindler, chief executive of non-profit firm Capital Enterprise, and signed by several other company bosses – said £3.7m in funding had been agreed in March 2016 to help provide expert support to more than 600 tech start-ups in the City under a scheme called CASTS.

“Until last week we were on track to sign the full funding agreement in mid-July,” the letter said. “So it was with alarm that we heard … that, because of the referendum result, the Department of Communities and Local Government has notified the GLA [Greater London Authority] to inform Capital Enterprise that ERDF projects like CASTS, were to be put on ‘pause’ for an indefinite period.

“We would urge you to unblock this funding which is vital to the tech community in London. [The referendum] result has created a lot of uncertainty and raised questions for what it means for tech businesses in London.”

It is understood the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and the Mayor of London’s office have also written to the Treasury asking for the suspension of payments to be lifted.

The suspension came into effect when Mr Osborne was Chancellor and whether to lift it will be a key early decision for his successor Philip Hammond to take. The Government is expected to make an announcement on the situation in the next few days.

The current ERDF began in 2014 and is due to run until 2020, by which point it is expected that the UK will have left the EU. The total amount available from the fund was €3.6bn (about £3bn), but about 20 per cent is thought to have been given out already. This means that just under €3bn (about £2.5bn) is left. However these payments must be supplemented national public  and private funds(In a nutshell PFI).

Mr Spindler said Capital Enterprises, which was set up by universities and others to help small start-up companies grow quickly, had already spent about £50,000 in expectation of getting the £3.7m and had 20 people lined up to start work next month.

He said they would look for new investors in the public or private sector if the money was not forthcoming. “It will have a big impact on the tech sector,” Mr Spindler said of the prospect of losing the funding. “Combined with the investment uncertainty after Brexit, it means the tech sector, which has been one of the drivers of growth, particularly in London, is not going to come grinding to a halt but will significantly slow down.”

It was unclear whether all or just some payments from the ERDF have been suspended by the Treasury. But there are increasing signs that the suspension is affecting a large amount, if not all, of the smaller funding schemes that receive ERDF money.
