The Budget 22:11 - Oct 24 with 2956 viewsSadoldgit

I have just seen the Chancellor tells us how important public services are and that he is going to spend money on them in this weeks budget. This is from the government who have spent the last decade cutting huge amounts on public service spending. Before we were told there was no Magic Money Tree. Now apparently there is a whole forest of them. Why on Earth does anybody have any trust in these people?

Why don’t you get involved at party politics at a local level? You’ll have a much better chance of changing the world that way than by daily repetitive rants on a football forum.

Under new leadership since then. Theresa May and Cameron were far too tight and austerity didn't work. It was those two that cut back too drastically. Rishi and Boris spend money like it's water for a conservative government.

Poor Sunak probably has been brainwashed by the persistent chorus of spend more, more, more from the opposition benches!

Had you forgotten the debacle of the financial crash, following the Gordon Brown era of spending more and more money on the public sector including hundreds of jobs of the "Senior Manager Representing Diversity and Equality" ilk throughout government departments and Labour Councils? Oh, and the note left by his Labour Chancellor, "Sorry, the money has all gone."

My personal rant about the Budget is how it's leaked into the press days before the event.

I think the Speaker has warned the Gov't not to do that, but they're ignoring him.

Why bother with a Budget, Parliament, democracy if we can be told all we need via the Daily Moron?

Why is it when people critisise public spending under previous Governments they always pick on things that sound like sounbites from the Daily Mail? Money was spent on all manner of things like education, more nurses and police and the rest of the CJS. Things that have but cut to the bone in the last 10 years.

Because people remember what actually happened with year on year tax increase and spending up to the hilt. Maybe it sounds like soundbites from the Daily Mail because you seem to have a revulsion to things that contradict your skewed Daily Worker version of reality, the Daily Mail included. And no, I don't read it because it is a comic. The NHS has a long history of receiving substantial funding increases, and as soon as they are awarded, the Drs and nurses are the first to pitch in with big wage increase demands that consume most of the extra funds. I don't hold with their whimpering about how bad life is for them in based on the past 40 years or so of stuffing their own pockets first.

You are now moaning about media reporting increases to public spending again.

You have clearly never worked in or don’t know anybody who works in the public sector then. Strange you say that you don’t read the Mail as you sound exactly like their leader writer.
I am not moaning about public spending going up. I am complaining that it has been cut so much in the last decade meaning that we are still going to be well behind where we should have been 10 years ago no matter what the increases are.

I will own up to having a professional interest in the Budget.

My view on public funding and the Chancellor's claims is that they are smoke and mirrors. Look at what he said on schools.

"I will return funding to 2010 levels"!

Whose been in power most of the time since then?

Why are we looking to educate those who are going to paying our pensions to a standard that in 2010 was below par? Why has it taken a decade to get back there?

And no, teachers are not money grabbing champagne socialists looking to be the biggest winner from increased funding. How many school buildings need work? How many extra trips and visits have been cancelled? How many breakfast and supper clubs cancelled?

I spent the best part of three years lobbying MPs of all colours and you learn that the very first thing out of your mouth is "you can benefit from what I want you to do because...". Start with the problem and you get the "nice to see you" within ten minutes. Start with what;s in it for them and you get 20 minutes.

They are terrified of losing power and all those new to Parliament with their fine ideals of "working for the people" have that nonsense beaten out them within weeks of joining the Westminster village.

It is relative. "standards" of poverty in the UK are far higher (lower?) than poorer countries.

See the 'levels of poverty" graphic here; https://www.jrf.org.uk/our-work/what-is-poverty

This is an expensive country to live in, but people in the top 2 tiers in the graphic will still have considerably more income and FAR better standards of living than many many billions of people around the world.

So it is relative to our economic position and nothing to do with being the 5th largest economy in the world

You don’t say your news source but the use of the word poverty is misleading. As I’ve said before ‘poverty’ in the Uk is relative, calculated as anyone on less than 60% of Uk average earnings. It’s not a measure of starving people. Ridiculous confusing Uk low earners who have TVs and mobiles able to eat at McDonald’s with hungry villagers in Sudan, or India peasants scavenging rubbish heaps for a living.
I’m sure there are many poor people in the UK by definition but you stated 1 in 6 or 17%, over 10 million, really?
