    Hammond’s Budget was a nonsense, held together by the odd few giveaways. Darrell’s observation that Maggie May could find another 20 billion, to hand over to the EU, is in stark contrast to the 2.8 billion that will go to the NHS.
    I always thought that politics contained the art of keeping the people in the dark, while feeding them disinformation. This is an item that this Government has failed in, and has opened the box of Tory intentions. 20 billions for something that we are not obliged to pay, but is an appeasement to the EU that we want to leave. Matched against 2.8 billion, that is clearly not enough, but needed urgently now for our NHS, and our own people. SO THE EU IS HIGHER ON THE LIST, TO THE HEALTH OF OUR OWN PEOPLE.
    I would have thought that Party advisers and think tanks, would have put forward a warning to the PM and Chancellor, that this could be understood by all the people, and being an economist is not required. The Tory Party has now made itself reliant upon those who only vote Conservative, and that will not be enough at a General Election.
    Maggie May has become the Jinks of the Party, and I cannot understand why the Party has allowed her to continue. Maybe they are all too thick to see the obvious. With the Labour Party in a mess, and I am still getting emails from ‘LabourLeave’, there may be the best chance yet for UKIP. Our Party must be prepared for this great oportunity.

    If more money is pumped into the NHS, will it actually go where it is needed? ie to frontline services.
    Or will it just be siphoned off in the form of ‘bonuses’ for already highly-paid chief executives, managers and other admin staff?
    Throwing money at a ‘problem’ in the hope that the problem will go away is not a viable long-term strategy. Questions like “why does the NHS need more money” need to be asked and seriously debated. The NHS ‘needing more money’ is a secondary problem, identifying and dealing with the primary problem – “why does the NHS need more money and what is this money being spent on?” – should be the main concern, otherwise the NHS is going to continue to ‘need more money’.
