Paul Hinnigan5 Mar 2021 1:19PMWe are told that our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his so-called Conservative party fundamentally believe in:-Liberty and personal freedom – this government have imposed draconian laws making it ILLEGAL to meet with friends or relatives, even outside and have imposed mask-wearing and severe travel restrictions etc. Most without prior parliamentary approval and the efficacy not backed up by any research or evidence!-A low tax, entrepreneurial economy – the recent budget means that the total % of tax taken by this Government will be the highest for almost 60 years!-Supporting small businesses – most small businesses have been forcibly closed for much of the last 12 months and many have gone out of business. Again, without any clear evidence of the benefits in doing this!-Devolution of decision making – virtually all decision making has been centralised and major legal changes have been made by just a few ministers without proper review and scrutiny by parliament. Worryingly, I see nothing to indicate these few 'dictators' are looking at relinquishing any of these new powers soon!-Controlling our borders and the levels of immigration – you just need to look at literally hundreds of hotels and other accommodation around the country that are currently  full of illegal immigrants and the fresh intake on the boat-trips from France each day, to see how 'well' our immigration control is working!-Good education for all & that every child should have the same opportunity to make the most of their lives – most children have missed out on many months of education, even though this was supposed to be the government's main priority. This, together with the mental health issues caused, will blight many British lives for many years to come.-World class healthcare and shorter NHS waiting times – the NHS became a Covid only service for months, with many NHS services effectively closed down. The terrible ongoing impact on Cancer, Coronary, Stroke, Mental Health and hundreds of thousands of other patients now waiting over 12 months for their planned operations will likely be far greater than the health impact of Covid.-Protecting the Union of the UK –  large numbers in Wales, like Scotland, are now wanting independence – not going well!-Giving people more control of their own future – millions of people are more reliant on the government financially than has ever been the case. Many people now seem content to sit and wait for the government to tell them what they can and can't do, something that only 12 months ago would have been seen as totally alien to many in Britain!Johnson is operating as a Dictator. Don't let the dodgy haircut or the staged 'a bit bumbling, but I'm a nice guy really' persona fool you. He is extremely dangerous to the British way of life we are all used to and our ancestors fought for!Do NOT vote for these faux-conservatives at the forthcoming May elections (or the even worse Labour party) – show them that what they've done and are continuing to do is NOT acceptable!...

Perhaps not so bonkers.. “Own Nothing and Be Happy”: The Great Reset’s Vision of the Future World Economic Forum’s video tells us about the plans for humanity in the year 2030 Colin Todhunter The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, Switzerland, brings together international business and political leaders, economists and other high-profile individuals to discuss global issues. Driven by the vision of its influential CEO Klaus Schwab, the WEF is the main driving force for the dystopian ‘great reset’, a tectonic shift that intends to change how we live, work and interact with each other. The great reset entails a transformation of society resulting in permanent restrictions on fundamental liberties and mass surveillance as entire sectors are sacrificed to boost the monopoly and hegemony of pharmaceuticals corporations, high-tech/big data giants, Amazon, Google, major global chains, the digital payments sector, biotech concerns, etc. Using COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions to push through this transformation, the great reset is being rolled out under the guise of a ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ in which older enterprises are to be driven to bankruptcy or absorbed into monopolies, effectively shutting down huge sections of the pre-COVID economy. Economies are being ‘restructured’ and many jobs will be carried out by AI-driven machines. In a short video showcased on social media, the WEF predicts that by 2030, “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.” More dystopia here: hTtps://off-guardian.org/2020/11/12/own-nothing-and-be-happy-the-great-resets-vision-of-the-future/

Freddie0, I suspect that this Lloyds move is part of a 'big government' exercise to remove small landlords, to get more control over the peasantry. The State via it's agents becoming the 'Squire', obey/comply with our dictats or you're on the street.

Lloyds Bank to become private landlord - report Lloyds Banking Group is planning to become a large private landlord as it seeks new sources of revenue with interest rates at record lows, the Financial Times reported. Under the plan, called "Project Generation", Britain's biggest retail bank will buy and rent out new and existing properties across the UK, the FT said, citing documents and people familiar with the initiative. Lloyds aims to have its first tenants by the end of this year. Lloyds, which owns the UK's biggest mortgage lender Halifax, wants to use its low funding costs, brand recognition and knowledge of the housing market to become a big operator in the fragmented private landlord market. The bank, which also owns Bank of Scotland, has commercial relationships with almost all the UK's biggest housebuilders. The move shows the pressure retail banks are under as rock-bottom rates shrink lending margins with rates set to stay low for the foreseeable future. Lloyds hopes to sell loans and insurance to tenants as well as taking rental yield and potential value gains from the properties it buys, the FT said. Lloyds told the FT: "We are committed to broadening access to home ownership and exploring opportunities to increase our support to the UK rental sector." The BTU union for Lloyds employees warned against the idea, saying: "The private rental market is such a risky business and if things go wrong the bank's reputation could take a hammering." [...]

Unfinished business....... Stuart Clark4 Mar 2021 8:44PMBrussels doesn't care about the Belfast agreement. Brussels just wants to punish the UK for having the temerity to leave the club and take its contributions with it. If we had any balls we would abandon the checks in the North Sea and let the EU erect a border between the ROI and NI.200LikeReplyM E Greaves4 Mar 2021 8:36PMDump the whole deal and go WTO.

Any further UK government 'kowtowing' to Brussels must cease!Further, any fines or tariffs imposed on UK goods by the EU must be reciprocated immediately the EU try to impose them!Stop 'shilly shallying about' and sort out the mess caused by the two so-called 'agreements' with the EU, neither of which are in Britain's interests.

"accepted defeat" Defeat of what, politics is a process. The argument continues well beyond your small insignificant life. In the future, when most Little Englanders and Murdoch are dead, there will be an opportunity to get back in. It will happen. Globalisation will force it IMO.

John Redwood's DiaryAnyone submitting a comment to this site is giving their permission for it to be published here along with the name and identifiers they have submitted.The moderator reserves the sole right to decide whether to publish or not.EU rules for debts and deficitsMARCH 5, 2021 53 COMMENTSThe Chancellor is calling for ideas on what new fiscal rules should be applied to the UK economy as it seeks to recover from the pandemic shock.One of the surprises in the official figures released with the budget was to see the traditional table showing the next five years figures against the targets of the EU's Growth and Stability Pact, with reference to the Maastricht Treaty levels. Whilst we were in  the EU the limitation of state debt to 60% of GDP and the annual deficit to 3% of GDP applied to us, though we did not face the same enforcement penalties as members of the Eurozone could face. Some people argued the Stability and Growth policy did not apply to us, yet we reported on it annually at the budget, sent in the necessary figures to the EU to monitor our budget and its conformity and had an annual debate about it in Parliament. I did not expect to see the report of these numbers to continue after we had left the EU. Previous Chancellors did guide the economy by seeking to get the deficit down so that state debt fell as a proportion of GDP, as the EU said.The documents imply that some parts of official thinking believe this is still a good way to guide an economy. There is a concern to see state debt as  a percentage of GDP falling again, which is what we should do to comply with the Pact. I agree there should be some debt control as part of a  sensible strategy but there is no reason to think the 60% percentage of GDP figure for debt and the 3% deficit figure are the best or right ways to steer. There is an argument to say you should treat capital spending differently from day to day spending on public services. If the state is investing in an asset which will generate a positive return  that exceeds the government's cost of borrowing there is less reason to restrict such spending. I think we need new fiscal rules based around boosting the growth rate and productivity, and distinguishing  between worthwhile investments and other public spending. I will return to this issue soon.... John Redwood

I'm never going to forgive Brexiters, especially Johnson. I wouldn't mind if the whole process had been above board, transparent, fair and sensible. One might have even accepted Brexit had it been done this way. The country has never given the mandate for what we have now. It has been twisted and thrown upon us. Corbyn is just as guilty being a closet Leaver and nationalisation fantasist. In reality he wouldn't have been able to nationalise much due to international laws but that fact was wasted on the electorate. Too busy with Murdoch's focus on anti-semitism by the Labour party leader at the time.

Minerve 25 Mar '21 - 11:12 - 333633 of 333635 Boris & co could shoot children and Brexiteers would still defend the fact they are doing a 'good job'. Perhaps characteristics that define one as successful and the others as failures who continually blame others. :) -------------------------------------------------------- Unfortunately, Yes, this is true. We are now set to be fairly much perpetually at war with the EU, of the non-shooting variety, thankfully, as we try to pretend that the implications of our leaving should not in reality apply to us. Brexit is a disaster, and we are seeing this week by week, month by month, from fishing, to exporters, to artists touring, or any young person seeking employment there, through of course to the 80% of services that were excluded from the deal. Try sending or receiving a parcel to/from the EU! Lols. And the EU is far and away our largest trading partner. But having lost the argument, those of us who said 'We told you so' can only only watch as the mess begins to unravel, and the blame game steps up a notch with every further broken treaty.
