Rocketing energy costs are being met with inaction and yet another levy, while the industry pleads for help and prepares to shut down. We have empty shelves due to a lack of HGV drivers, in substantial part due to Brexit non-returnees. Shortages of abattoir workers (linked to Brexit – again) has led to the culling of healthy pigs on farms.
The nation is in deep crisis and effective measures are needed, but all we get is a posturing buffoon (who clearly hasn’t a clue about how to deal with real problems) at the head of an incompetent administration whose only consistent policy is “too little, too late”. The government pretends there isn’t a problem, tries to blame someone else – and then panics!
Isn’t it time this utterly useless administration stepped aside and made way for a government in favour of national recovery, comprising all the parties and working together in the national interest – and not just that of the Conservative Party and its cronies?
