We’re borrowing huge amounts of money and paying over £100 billion a yr in interest because of austerity.

And it’s likely to get worse.

When Labour left power we had debt of £800 billion AFTER bailing the banks out. You Tories slashed spending and still ran up debt.
This outcome is exactly what Keynes predicted. The Tories are monetarists. They don’t believe a government must spend so thru do the exact opposite of what’s required and the result is a long term structural hole in national finances that will take DECADES to fix
So, far from bring the party of sound financial management, the Tories are the party of slash and burn economics. Slash spending after the 2008/9 crash and the result is the economy shrank, tax receipts declined , so then they had to borrow and have not stoop since.

Currently attending a lecture at #UEA by @NorwichChloe. Hoping the students will do a good job with their questions.
Lots of compliments for UEA. Now getting onto work and employment. Keeps thinking that everyone should be helping to grow our economy. Still thinks our problem is people being on benefits not working. But people need jobs to pay enough without benefits.
Sticking plaster on the problem of mental health. Yes sure, add more mental health support? Let's see it. But has Chloe thought about the reason why we have an epidemic of mental health issues keeping people off work? Mental health suffers from poverty, inequality, oppression.

Thread: 1/4 Access to the Single Market & Customs Union would revalue the UK & the Pound. The UK's Credit Rating would improve, reversing the drop due to Brexit. People forget #BrexitBrokeBritain and was to the very great detriment of the UK
2/4 #Brexit was never actually intended. It was Cameron's game of chicken with UKIP & a strategy to stave off UKIP's challenge to Tory voters afflicting Tory polling. The referendum was only ever about preservation of Tory hopes of ongoing power. All to the detriment of the UK
3/4 Since then, the Tory party has downgraded their ambition & has replaced the objective of saving the Tory Party with the objective of saving Boris Johnson. All to the detriment of the Tory Party and also to the detriment of UK

"Britain is a nation that’s changed night and day since 2016. It was a quiet, prosperous nation that became a haven for Right-wing populists, a breeding ground for racism, and a hub for misinformation. None of which is a coincidence."
"It’s the byproduct of nationalism, racism, and demagoguery. And if it sounds similar to post-2016 America, that’s because it is. Both countries began their ascent down the black hole of authoritarianism at the same time for a reason."
"Actually, two reasons: Boris Johnson and Donald Trump."

"Two men who are similar in more ways than they are different. Two men who redefined Western politics for the worse."

This is your daily reminder that Germany 🇩🇪 which has 20 million more citizens than the UK spent less than 1 (one) Billion pounds on their Track and Trace system. And didn’t run out of money.

The Tories spent 37 Billion pounds and ran out of money.
It vanished in Tory companies
2/5 As a reminder: The total cost of running the state of the United Kingdom is 101 Billion pounds. The Tories intentionally spent 37 Billion pounds, more than a third of the total state budget on a failing system. It never worked properly. But they knew this. Some “consultants”
3/5 for Track+Trace earned thousands A DAY. (!)
Money had to be “burned”/ given to Tory Donors in the quickest , most wasteful ,ineffective way, so that that money -the absolutely UNBELIEVABLY AND RIDICULOUSLY HIGH SUM would be ready and waiting once the pandemic was over and

There is NO excuse for this.

Especially after the SAME people threw BILLIONS AND BILLIONS AND B-I-L-L-I-O-N-S of pounds around in the last 24 months as if they own a FOREST of money trees and if it was their own money+they gave it TO THEIR party-donors who will donate it back. Image
I want to tell you one thing,Tories:Unlike your assumption we NHS staff+the public are NOT stupid.We have SEEN all you did, we SEE what you do NOW,we KNOW this is OUR money,we are NOT forgiving+NOT understanding about:

1/Watching the EU making statements in unity about Putins war murders makes you realize the UK is standing on the side lines.Ministers barely making random visits to the Polish border for photo shoots for British tabloid papers

What was the reason for leaving a block of 500 Mio?
2/ … What was the reason to leave the EU, the block of 500 Mio people and 27 countries again? Oh yes, #ToryBrexitDisaster was about limiting Immigration into our country because we Brits need those houses and Jobs and Money that the evil people (like me, I’m on both sides) from
3/ “abroad” are taking from “the natives” in the UK 🤦🏻… . Everyone here has ancestors who came to Britain. That’s the funny side of that one.
The not funny part is finding out more every day how the Tories bowed to the Russian money,took it and hence became complicit in weaken

UK is run by the Vote Leave regime wallowing in an oligarchs paradise, Patel stopping the Russian Golden visa scheme is too little too late. This is a Govt of the super rich, obscene wealth riddled with abuses of power and innate corruption. UK trust on the world stage
drastically diminished, a monetised coup in place, political influence openly commodified by corporations replete with privately sub contracted donations to ensure that disaster capitalists dictate policy.
The 2000's clearly show the massive influx of Russian money into British politics came with Russian values, a Faustian deal whereby the cultural colonization by oligarchy has totally compromised and handcuffed the UK to Putin.

@chrisriddell50 My first thought when I saw this today was whether your colleague @MartinRowson might regard these events as, 'a storm in a fur cup'!

...evidently, there are agendas but, some are too quick to impose their interpretation on events - they hear but don't LISTEN! Image
"In the last few weeks, the benefits to Russia from its sabre-rattling must have far exceeded the Kremlin’s expectations. It has produced a traffic jam of presidents, prime minister and ministers making their way to Moscow."
"They may be issuing warnings against a Russian invasion of Ukraine, but the reality is that for the first time since 1991 Russia is once again being treated as a superpower to be feared, cultivated and never disregarded."

IF IT's MILD

why has army been called in to vaccinate,
drive ambulances
& HGVs

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

Another terrifying article from @BylineTimes

Scientific Racism
Nazi Eugenics (currently happening under the guise of COVID in my opinion - in plain sight) Image
we desperately need to rid ourselves of the current govt & cabinet. They are platforming and employing academic KKK! FFS... Image

yesterday I complained about BOJO's xmas message re boosters for Christians, as earlier in the day the media reported how the Pakistani community is less than 55% vaccinated, today I read this:

Because it’s undeliverable, and always was. Especially by someone of such jingoistic mediocrity.

Bye then. 👋

Like every Brexit negotiator we’ve had, he leaves behind a trail of mess and distrust, and bewildered allies across the channel. It remains the stupidest thing a country has ever done to itself. #BrexitReality #BrexitHasFailed
At least the Tories will be able to have Lord Frost’s leaving party during a lockdown, the way they like it.

Oh my goodness. 🎉

Now imagine what could happen if Labour and the Lib Dems built a proper strategic partnership across the country (unlike last night). The Tories would be out for a generation, probably more. #NorthShropshire #ThePartyIsOver
I mean, this was proper, solid right wing Tory Brexit country just two years ago. None of this mess is irreversible. None of it. #ToryBrexitDisaster #ToryShambles #ThePartyIsOver

It’s all imploding. This is their own propaganda organ’s front page. Tory MPs will ditch Johnson sooner rather than later, they often eat their own leaders. Abysmal state for the UK to be in as #COP26 gasps for breath

Bloody hell. Every word of this. I hope more moderate Conservatives speak out like this, louder, and more often. This government of mini Trumps is on the ropes, and hasn’t the brains to change course or any compass to navigate itself out of its cesspit.🔥
This is where power-crazy nationalist flag shagging populism leads.
Their propaganda rag not even playing the game today. #TorySleaze

OK, it's probably a handful of idiots who are ignoring the "NO FUEL" signs at the petrol station, but LOL. There's normallly pretty much no traffic here on a Sunday morning.
And so after picking up sausage rolls from Greggs, I headed back. #PumpWatch #ToryBrexitDisaster
Easy to gloat of course, but when a mono-culture of transport has been pushed for decades at national (and in Havering's case, local) level, this is what happens when there is a disruption. In the videos we've buses, an ambulance and a food delivery truck stuck. Still, at least
