I suppose it should come as no surprise that the government’s representative in South Swindon, Ms Snelgrove, is unstinting in her support for Mr Darling’s attempts to bankrupt the country.
This budget is delivering real help now to get people, especially young people, quickly back into work, and support businesses and homeowners facing problems.
Has it not occurred to Ms Snelgrove that the 10% increase in unemployment in Swindon last month indicates that there just aren’t the jobs out there? No amount of unemployment-statistics-massaging training will change that decrease in employment. Having blamed the banks for reckless borrowing, the government is now recklessly borrowing, and we’ll all be paying for that long after Ms Snelgrove is claiming her generous MP’s pension and resettlement allowance.
