Und was wurde jetzt verkündet bei der Pressekonferenz der Regierung zum Thema Maßnahmen für #Frauen am #Arbeitsmarkt?
Vom Härtefallfonds für Selbstständige gingen 40% an Unternehmerinnen, dann zählt Frauenministerin Raab auf, wie viel vom Familienhärte- und Familienkrisenfond ausbezahlt wurde und der dass der "Kinderbonus zu 80% an Frauen gehen wird" - Will uns die verarschen? Echt jetzt?
Seit wann ist der Kinderbonus Frauenförderung? Seit wann ist Geld für Familien in Krisen Frauenförderung? Kann bitte jemand unsere Frauenministerin fragen, ob das ein schlechter Scherz sein soll? Was für eine bodenlose Frechheit! #Raab

I now have the 3 election flyers for Bournemouth West. Every election I get frustrated by the deceit and disinformation in them. So I’ve decided to take a look in detail at the numbers and claims. @ConorBurnsUK @CllrSimonBull @JonNicholas2017 @dave4bmthwest Thread: 1/13
First up @ConorBurnsUK and his claims about how great we have had it for the last 9 years. Lots of big, impressive sounding numbers but no sources, methodology or details.
The economy is 19% bigger than in May 2010.
19% sounds quite large but when you consider that is less than 2% growth per year the Conservatives really shouldn’t be saying this is good. For reference, world GDP growth is at about 3%.

1/Listening to the C4 Con leadership debate.

All “delivering Brexit”

#Gove. Opened his mouth and lost the first Q
#Stewart. Cleverer response “listened to Corbyn yadda”
#Raab. Kept his voice lower but Blah.
#Javid Same but at least talking about addressing issues.
#Hunt. Same
2/. Politics of fear re Corbyn.

Really pretty wet.

Hope it improves.
3/. #Raab didn’t deliver because resigned as a matter of principle.

This is reallyrather tragic.

At least #Stewart is saying they cannot reopen the WA and challenging #Raab on the HOW?

Especially HOW in No deal.

#Raab really is remarkably dim.

FWIW, here are my subjective rankings of the #ToryLeadershipContest #tax cut proposals. (This is a personal view only - I don’t have a dog, or even a vote, in this fight.) In reverse order… (1/6)
No. 5 (i.e. last). Reform #VAT and replace with a sales tax (#Gove). Bad economics. VAT is a relatively efficient tax and the current system already allows the UK gov’t to set lower rates for some goods and services to help the poor. #Brexit will increase this flexibility. (2/6)
No. 4. Raise the threshold for paying the top rate of income tax (#Johnson). Neither one thing nor the other? Won’t actually make much difference to those earning just above the old threshold, or any difference to those who earn a lot less. (3/6)

1/3Buried deep in #Brexit technical notes is Govt’s plan to scrap future European Works Councils if there's No Deal. Leaving British workers at a disadvantage compared to their EU colleagues by preventing them from negotiating with management about pay & terms and conditions.
2/3 Sad to see that Trade Unions weren't invited to #Raab press conference or given access to technical notes beforehand. Another example of the Tories lacklustre commitment to workers’…
3/3 A no deal Brexit would be bad enough, but the absence of contingency plans on vital issues such as workers’ rights will only make things worse for workers and our economy as a whole. @UKLabour will protect workers and their hard-won rights.
