A tale of two cities

Stoke on Trent……..Labour wins after UKIP’s Paul Nuttall disintegrates mid-attack. With his Hillsborough website catastrophe, his strange attempts to state he was a resident when he was so obviously not, his stuttering attacks on an enemy which never really came off.


Copeland.………..Tories grab the prize in the one area where Jeremy Corbyn’s apathy and angst towards the whole nuclear process, both weaponry and power generation was, to many, a truly deciding factor. The Labour push towards NHS cuts and possible closures should have worked; but when the Labour Leader cannot inspire his MPs to even appear to be united, what else was to be expected. Theresa May should grab both her Chancellor and Business Secretary by the balls, chop the whole Business Rates debacle into matchwood, show the business people that they will not be penalised any further, and would therefore wipe the floor with any further insurgencies, within her Party and without,

    If business rates were halved the high streets might just begin to rejuvenate. I’m not sure if charity shops pay full, if any, business rates, but it’s time they did.

      Tax rates a key priority.

    Also, the “Brown Tax” on small and start-up businesses should be rescinded. I’m told start-ups try to avoid being too profitable or achieving much turnover in their first year, as paying 2 year’s tax at the end of their first year can destroy them. It’s hard to believe a Conservative government has allowed this appalling and destructive tax to continue – they used to support SMEs & start-ups.

      It shows the incompetence of government: their response is that they (the state) need the taxes to pay off the deficit.

      Consider that for a moment: the state needs to tax (which destroys businesses, individuals and creates unemployment and welfare demand) to pay off the deficit – brought about by government spending on unemployment and welfare demands.

      It is ouroborous. They refuse to acknowledge that the problem isn’t the amount raised, but the amount spent.

    Nuttall, sorry to all Nuttalls, there is a strangeness about that name, this Paul looks like the head warder of an asylum, should have been elected to it.

    Nuttall came and then shat in his own pond.

    So, why did they not choose a local UKIP candidate – because, rank amateur incompetence is what UKIP do.
