What did we learn from the chancellor's press conference?
Rishi Sunak's media briefing came after his Budget speech today.
He began by saying he wants to be "honest about the problems we face", and said and it will take "a long time" to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
He repeated the headline policies from the Budget:
Continued support for the economy during the pandemic: the furlough scheme, help for the self-employed, business rates relief, and other grants for business
A freeze in the income tax standard and higher rate thresholds, and, from 2023, a corporation tax increase to 25%
Investment in infrastructure and skills, across the UK
In response to questions from journalists, Mr Sunak said:
He thought the government has a responsibility to control public borrowing after the time
He promised that no one's current take home pay will be affected by the freezing of the income tax thresholds
Despite the proposed increase, the UK's corporation tax will be lower than in many of its competitors. Mr Sunak insisted the government was "on the side of businesses" but said the pandemic had made some tax rises necessary
The Budget is intended to allow for flexibility in the government's roadmap for leaving lockdown in England

  • don't believe slither all he has done is throw around some helicopter money acting like a mere painkiller delaying the inevitable putting the entire nation in more debt and soon after the scam of furlough is over we will see a deluge of unemployment, mass repossessions and evictions when the damage could have easily been averted by offering loans of up to 5 million to UK registered companies regardless of status or 100% government backed provided they do not lay off any employees or seaze activities but I guess the while idea behind this mockery was to enslave the nation and put thr current generations and generations to come in more and more debt and no there is no money for innovation all that there is are grants for the rich companies who can afford only. i havr been working on a highly efficient green hydrogen from seawater solution that can make 🇬🇧 energy independent and provide tens of thousands of jobs but I can't get a penny in help or loans because I have been in R&D for the past 7 years I have mortgaged my only home and borrowed to provide this solution to the country but just like millions outhere been thrown under the bus and get repossessed soon so don't make the mistake these people do not have Britain's best interests at heart they do not work for Britain

  • How about instead of punishing us all with another 10 years of austerity you take it out on the people who tried to take advantage of this pandemic which was not our fault in the slightest, it is your failing and lack of transparency and logistical planning that has got us into this mess in the first place, you make yourselves look like angels and godsend during the pandemic like you've got our back then you do a complete u-turn and punish us all with tax increases and don't even get me started on the absolute insult of a 1% pay increase for NHS staff. Take it out on the people that can god damn handle it like the thousands of billionaires and millionaires in this country who avoid paying tax all together (looking at you Amazon!), it's outright disgusting how much wealth inequality there is in this country and a series of successive governments who won't do a damn thing about it because they've been brought and paid for by said people and corporations!

  • May I suggest a good way to better open your economy, not implementing new borders with nearly all your neighbors but of course economy is not the priority, sovereignty is the priority. It is a respectable choice but you should have the courage to endorse it. We made the choice of sovereignty it has an short and medium impact/ cost on our economy. If you add the impact of the pandemic we have to deal with that. Be honest...

Be proud of your sovereignty first choice

  • Sunak is trained in the Tory cycle of us 1st last and finish ! I've heard ducks like him fart b4 now ? In the 80' thatcher said the "we" word that means nowt like what she said and now another plum after those b4 him he's saying the same ? Tightening our belts means the under class and hatcher created as well as the poorest and worst off disabled and hungry ! During those years those like me and the others that's typically called ordinary will see that tightened belt stay put and will not ever be any different ? Listening 2 this manufactured Tory clone just absolutely angers and provokes me ? He's talking the usual claptrap and he's never once mentioned making the obscenely rich pay their share that was dropped when the country was on its arse according 2 the weasels that's Torys that's nigh on 11 years ago they've pulled in vast amounts of money ? That's how it works we pay they flay the tax man by consistently fiddling their own tax payments ! Proven by the paradise papers then bolstered by less tax %'s from the rich Tory government 2 the off the planet rich ! They should go they do nothing 4 this country and it's never been more obvious or clear as now ? Sunak can shut the door on this shit itdoesnt fool the older generation but the young people that voted 4 these rats will more than likely not live long enough 2 realise their pensions !!!! No doubt you'll die working as they the misers take you back ? That's the reality Dickensian times and workhouses as they the class distinctive feeds mean it !
