Punched in my monthly financials on this, thanks to Red Rishi I can now choose between putting money into a savings account or having disposable income each month :rage:

I wonder what went through the minds of the minimum wage employees of the various business owners who appeared being interviewed on news reports yesterday whining about how the new minimum wage will affect their income. In effect these people were saying their employees were worth less than what the new minimum wage will be. That must have sent those employees off to work with a spring in their step today. How about these owners considering the affect being on minimum wage has on the people who actually do the hard income- bringing graft for their company, instead of whining?

The Welsh Government have for years been doing up the Heads of the Valleys road. It's a very important project but very complicated, with big cuttings needed and big embankments to be built, with flyovers being built over inadequate roundabouts.

Every single borough it goes through is deprived, Neath Port Talbot, RCT, Merthyr, Caerphilly, Blaenau Gwent, but I've never heard a big song and dance being made about "levelling up". Nobody is seriously suggesting that Ebbw Vale and Brynmawr are going to turn into posho Monmouth because this road's been improved. It's just what local/devolved government does.

In the meantime, here's Rishi boasting about doing up a bit of road near Leeds. And putting it in the wrong constituency. You'll never guess which party (narrowly) hold the constituency where it actually is (Pudsey).

Fasten your seatbelts. Are you laying in wait at the pass, Rachel?

Older posters may recall Heath’s chancellor Anthony Barber pulled a crowd pleasing expansionist budget out of the hat like Sunak, when the economy was in no fit shape to sustain it. With disastrous political consequences.

Greensill. Hmmm. What gammon-faced pig--botherer has been in the news linked to shady goings-on with Greensill?

I didn't realise that Greensill had been leeching off the taxpayer for that long. If things don't change they'll stay as they are.

Rishi and co are probably OK as regards interest rates. Inflation hitting the poor hard could be another matter. The budget was relatively progressive in terms of low earners, but it won't fully disguise that their incomes are not growing like they were promised. The Tories do surprisingly well among this group nowadays. Look at the incredible vote shares they get in places like Thurrock now.

Not that Labour will win Thurrock back, but there are other places closer where the Tories could be taking a hit.
