Cornelius Fudge would have managed brexit and covid19 better
Brexit is, and will continue to be, a colossal wasteful bonfire of taxpayers’ money.
Problem is many in HMG have blind faith in British exceptionalism and keeping the faith in an ideologically pure Brexit as the panacea for all future challenges. UK reality inevitably is more complex and there is likely to be a hard landing as reality trumps sovereignist dreams.
Completely, totally spot on. When unemployment hits 80’s levels & after years of #CovidIncompetence, the #Conservatives will realise red wall voters lent them their vote & #Starmer will take it back “We need more than homes to level up Britain” https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/we-need-more-than-homes-to-level-up-britain-z0dv53v7f?shareToken=...
Boris Johnson continues to say he believes Mr Cummings behaved reasonably and he considers the matter is closed. RT this if you disagree with him on that #MatterNotClosed
Dominic Cummings’ reckless disdain for the laws he helped create undermined the public’s trust in vital public health measures during a deadly pandemic. And yet Boris Johnson is so beholden to him he’s still in post. This is no way to run a country.

NHS accused of wasting 'eye-watering' amount of money | Daily Mail Online Your headline is wrong @Daily Mail U.K. It should be “THE GOVERNMENT is wasting eye watering sums of money” INSTEAD of investing more economically in NHS and Public Health https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8602305/NHS-accused-wasting-eye-watering-money.html
£900 per person contacted. It’s not the NHS wasting money, though. This isn’t an NHS app. This is the Govt wasting taxpayers’ money on an insecure private company’s app and over-centralised system. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8602305/NHS-accused-wasting-eye-watering-money.html
Fat cats: Don’t believe the hype about executives of large companies cutting their pay. Despite taking business rates holidays, pay for furloughed staff, UK govt-backed loans and promises of pay restraints, fat-cattery has continued. Govt has done zilch. https://leftfootforward.org/2020/08/dont-believe-the-hype-about-fat-cats-cutting-their-pay/
With the best and brightest UK & EU nationals leaving the UK, and EU workers and students no longer coming, UK industry and universities will have difficulty to fill places, yet another #Brexit bonus...👌 https://www.businessinsider.fr/us/number-of-brits-moving-to-eu-has-risen-30-since-brexit-vote-2020-8
