It’s all about the money, money

Whilst the Taxpayers Alliance stimulates people to vote Tory to avoid higher taxes, tax payers are taken to the cleaners by private finance initiatives like ‘buying council flats’, which cost them loads more money than paying a little more tax. Many people have been defrauded by crooks exploiting vulnerabilities of private investors.

I am trying to keep out of current affairs, yet today’s politicians don’t seem to look further than just in front of their noses. There are no long-term goals indicated in policies.

It’s out of the EU, free trade deals with the US but no longer-term plans on how to avoid incremental costs with all those extra risk factors that are accumulated through trade deals with far-away countries.

There are talks about reducing carbon rich activities, but how does bulk trade with far-away countries reduce the amount of carbon that is generated through transport. How do we avoid bad-weather disturbances of container ship transports?

Unfortunately today’s politics do not ask people to look at the basics, but their minds get fixed on ideologically tinted ideologies.

It were American manufacturers who supplied most of that faulty cladding that adornes our tower blocks and which cost a fortune to leaseholders to remove. They also manufactured the faulty tumble dryers.

Leaving the EU in favour of American trade deals will be very expensive according to this social media profile: @BarnabyEdwards

Costs broken down per day, per person:

  • EU membership £ 0.35 per person per day.
  • Cost of Brexit since 2016: £ 0.91 per person per day
  • Est. cost of Brexit: £ $.15 per person per day
  • Est. cost of No-deal Brexit: £ 5.81 per person per day
  • Nigel Farage’s earning from publicity since 2016: £ 541.10 per day.

Whilst our current government constantly claims to deliver the cheapest options, I am not so sure that those following all the advice, especially including private ownershp of council homes, actually make much money out of it.

I think it would be much more sensible if the Americans (US) concentrate on improving relationships with their neighbours (like Mexico) instead of constantly building walls and the same should be said about every other geographical region. If all continents make strong relations within themselves, we will all have better chances of getting a better life.

We do need world-peace and will not achieve it if we cannot make peace with our neighbours.

It’s like a desease that everywhere we look there are these pockets of aggressive conflict and it seems to be catching like a virus.
