Oh dear. Trouble in paradise?
On this occasion, Boris must ignore Dominic Cummings and use his common sense.
THE SUN SAYS Punishing hard-working Brits by hiking fuel tax is a sure way for Boris Johnson to lose votes
PUNISHING hard-working people for going about their daily business is a sure way to haemorrhage votes.
So why on earth is Boris Johnson’s top adviser considering hiking the fuel tax?
For smart city types blessed with excellent transport links, the increase would be a nuisance.
But for the Prime Minister’s new wave of voters who switched to Tory — ordinary grafters living in towns and villages — it’d be downright disastrous.
Everywhere you look, these people are being hammered by the cost of living.
Millions of Brits work hard day and night, yet come home to brown envelopes with yet more demands to pay. Energy bills, council tax, parking costs, phone bills, food bills — up, up, up.
Of course, it’s great that the Government is investing £5billion in bus and cycling routes to make life that bit cheaper for commuters. That’s exactly the sort of policy we’ve been calling for.
But it can’t come at the expense of Britain’s 37 million drivers. On this occasion, Boris must ignore Dominic Cummings and use his common sense.
Whacking voters with a whopping great tax for the privilege of taking their kids to school won’t make him any friends.
DOES the shamelessness of fatcat property developers know no bounds?
Thanks to soaring house prices and rent, record numbers of young adults in their 20s and 30s live with their parents.
Councils are doing their bit: nine out of ten planning permission requests are now granted.
And the Government has stepped in with a plan to make houses 30 per cent cheaper for local first-time buyers, which could be a game-changer.
But they’re swimming upstream, as property developers are doing all they can to make the crisis WORSE.
Instead of rushing to build new homes as soon as planning permission is granted, these greedy parasites are sitting on over one million plots of land waiting for their value to increase.
Squirrelling away planning permissions while Brits pay through the nose to have a roof over their heads is the height of immorality.
The Government must act now to stop the deceitful practice.
WITH crushing predictability, EU officials are rehashing the well-worn arguments over the Elgin Marbles.
Doesn’t Brussels have a few more pressing concerns?
The British Museum has done a wonderful job of preserving these fabulous sculptures for the world for centuries.
Puffed-up Eurocrats might think they’re playing hardball.
But to us, it looks like they’ve lost their marbles.
