Blimey. I guess what main stream press say does matter, they were mostly all critical, right?

Pretty much. It was a political gamble by Johnson which so far appears to be backfiring, and this also looks like voters aren’t happy with the triple lock being broken either. We also have UC being cut as well, it could be a very difficult few weeks for him now.

He’s not adverse to a u-turn though, is he? 😆

Yeah, rishi could suddenly find some extra cash before the oct budget meaning no need for a tax rise.

He could start by paying some more tax on his personal wealth. He would probably sort out the budget by himself.

I think one of the reasons that people don't seem to oppose the NI rise is they don't understand how it will affect them. Someone - either Labour, or a sympathetic paper - needs to spell out the impact in a way that people understand.

For example, the 1.25% increase looks like this:

And next April when people see their wage packets decrease, they'll know for sure.

Two things are going to happen now. 
 

Either massive U-Turns on everything or a massive distraction story will take over the news headlines for the next week or so

I can definitely see a u-turn happening on the universal credit thing, but we shall see. Maybe it's good to get all the bad stuff out of the way now, still a few years away from an election.

Interesting timing. Why has this story been brought up again now. 


Lens got a book out.

That Starmer is a slithery 🐍 is not news though, this was known to be the case at the time. Bit of extra lighter fluid to keep things ticking over until conference anyway. Unless they vet the audience, I reckon the fat controller will get booed off during his speech.

Not posted for a long time, obviously glasto is still far in the future and god knows if itll even be `allowed` to take place giving the current assholes in charge, however I do have to say seeing as I got so so so much shit for it at the time of the last election..... hey @eFestivals hows that `moderate` labour leadership working out for you? sunk without a trace thanks to no fire, no passion, no drive and very much on the fence and uninspiring in everything. stamer IS mr grey and labour will never go anywhere with this kind of attitude, just as we really need a firebrand opposition to hold the govt to account as well....shame that. Proud to say I was right 😛

Red Len is a crook with an axe to grind, he's also gone on record as saying that he hasn't spoken to Starmer as relationship has broken down - so which is it?

Kind of weird time to post this when Labour are polling better than they have in ages...
