    The thing is though Strolls….he’s got a point. You can hide your head in the sand as deep as you like but there’s a lot of truth in what he has said (as the clip shows)

    I don't hold any particular candle for turkey farmers, Stainesy. This bloke thinks that Sunak is a socialist and that people on Universal Credit should be dipping into their savings. Strange bedfellows you have.

    But that isn’t what he’s saying though Strolls. Agree with you about the Turkey Farmer……he’s obviously a ****

    I said people on benefits didn't need any extra money during the lockdown. On a separate issue, I said folks savings mainly went up and not down during lockdown. I never mentioned anybody employed/unemployed dipping into their savings. Let's keep this factual, please.

    The reason I call the chancellor Socialist Sunak is because I believe he spent too much during the pandemic and most of it was wasted cash.
    Eat out to help out. Never seen the point in that and it will have cost the taxpayer a fortune.
    £20 a week extra for UC. I never understood that because it wasn't needed. Now, they're removing it at a time when all of our bills are on the rise. This should have been the time to give people extra money. The Conservatives got that back to front. They've got it wrong.
    Furlough scheme and grants for businesses. Pretty much everybody I know who was able to take advantage with that went on to take a bit of a liberty with it, tbh. Good idea but far to relaxed and carefree with it.

    Totally agree about the furlough scheme. Great idea on paper but abused by unscrupulous employers

    Peoples savings went up? Mine certainly didnt and i dont know a single person who didnt dip into them (if they had any). How do you know people on benefits didnt need that extra 20 quid? My mother works for a charity helping these people, it was needed more than ever! And its needed even more so now!

    But hey wages are going up. Sis in laws pathetic pay increase is now just about swallowed by the NIC increase, cost of living, energy bills, fuel rises, food rises.

    But the rises you mention aren’t due to Brexit but instead down to the Tories ?
    Whereas the wage rise in certain sectors is most definitely down to Brexit.
    The two things are completely different.
