Tax cuts are not cheaper

Just watched Boris Johnson’s first Prime Ministerial speech to the Conservative Conference. He is an excellent and enthusing speaker but what he said was fairly empty propaganda.

I have not heard anything reliefing the pain of those who suffer through increasing homelessness.

He just promoted higher productivity, but said almost nothing about environmental improvements.

The biggest mantra is always the tax cuts and I would say tax cuts increase the costs for all of us on a constant basis.

The requests for charitable donations have trebled in all our daily lives. We are also providing considerably more voluntary services since the Conservatives introduced the Big Society.

Housing costs have increased significantly for those who bought their dwellings through improvement costs, may that be because of cladding or repairs.

At the supermarket are the requests to donate to the local food bank and constant request to donate to charitable deeds either through sporting or social events makes significantly more dents in all of our pockets rather than having a higher but regular tax contribution.

Crowd funding is another indirect taxation on us all.

I ask all of you to work out how much you have actually spent on donations since tax cuts have been introduced.

The speech was very emotionally satisfying to listeners but contained little proper politics. A lot of empty spin nevertheless.

In contrast Diane Abbott, the first Member of Parliament of colour, at least made reference to a real person of achievement, Dina Asher-Smith who is winning medals at Doha at the moment.

It’s not about installing women prime ministers who make the typically male policies, to be progressive. It is about making life good for all of us.
