On one side we have government ministers claiming they have reduced child poverty and on the other we have a report that says child poverty is cosing us 38 Billion a year.
We have arrived at a nighmmare we are unable to wake up from.

Our BoZo is very good at pretending to do something but actually doing nothing.

He started by saying he will level with the north and now he is saying he will level the rest of the world. How the hell does a leach stop sucking it's hosts blood and instead give blod back. Interesting thought though.

And now he is going to ask the rich countries to find 100 billion to help the poor countries with climate change. Naturally its the last we will hear that and in any case what could 100 million do to help?

Bugger all I suspect.

This can only happen in La La Land

A Tory police and crime commissioner has admitted he resigned from a job at a supermarket in the 1990s after receiving a police caution.

Steve Turner responded today after an MP used Parliamentary rules to claim he was "sacked" from his old job at Safeway for "systematic theft"

Whilst Germany stores 90 days worth of gas we in the La La Land only store 7 days worth. You just cannot believe what they are doing sometimes.

We have the monkeys in charge of the government.

Government is obviously blaming covid for the shortage of 100,000 HGV drivers and of course I have no doubt it had an effect but was it the only cause. Naturally back in March 2020 when we were locked in DVLC were clearly not processing paperwork and drivers could not take lessons or exams to qualify.

Lets have a look at Brexit and what it caused.
There were HGV divers who either did nit apply to remain or applied and were not given the right to remain in the UK after we were out of the EU.
There are also drivers now in the Eu who are not actually allowed to come here to work even if they wanted to. Interestingly the government may offer temporary visas for people to come an work and they actually think there are so many people who would take advantaged of that only to be kicked out of their job back to the country they came from. This reminds of the time when the company I worked for had been bought out by another company and they sent out an email telling us how many people will lose their jobs and asked us to reapply for our jobs. My manager was surprised that I did not apply for my job and asked me in the office to talk to me. He asked why I did not apply as he assured me that I would get my job back and was surprised at my reply. I told him to give my job to somebody else as I was not very happy working in such backstabbing environment. His face went bright red from anger.
Let’s take a look at Unsocial hours and low pay.
They are treated like dirt sometimes unable to even use the facilities of the company they are delivering to. So consequently, people leave the profession for better work environment.
There is one other reason that was caused by government itself.
Few years back they forced everybody who were self employed and actually spend capital to be self employed to be included in the IR35 Tax regulations which meant that they not only did not get the normal benefits of self-employment, they were effectively treated as an employee but not for the company they are working for, they had to use an umbrella company which meant they lost even more money as the umbrella company takes a cut to deal with your tax affairs.

And now having been in government for 11 years it was as if they had nothing to do with it.

well well well. There you have it folks, the sortage of petrol is your own fault. The fact that before Brexit and the pandemic we were short of 77,000 HGV drivers and Brexit coupled with the pandemic has pushed the shortage of drivers to 100,000 is our own fault.

Even fucking toilet paper is missing from the shelves. We really are in the shit.
