If you want total equality, thatís the road you would take. Unfortunately, the equality warriors are not wired to apply common sense.
Surely, this should apply to pensions too, yes?

Think how much that would save the taxpayer! Pensions is a huge bill. Truss should try it.

Tories outside of London clearly concerned how a paycut (or small pay rises) in the North would be perceived by voters.
She was being silly in the first place. Isn't levelling up supposed to do away with regional salaries? Joining the dots seems not to be her bag.

You'll be a pensioner one day, irrespective of any party membership or support.

Re: Updated: Boris resigns as party leader

Sunak wants to class anyone who 'hates' or 'vilifies' Britain as extremists who'll be targetted by anti-terrorism laws. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...proposals.html

Quote:
The former chancellor said he would extend the Government’s definition of ‘extremism’ to include those who attack British values and ‘our very existence’ if he becomes prime minister.
Not a slippery slope at all.

Pretty sure you were given one the last time you badgered me on this during the brexit transition period thread, not sure why you're so fascinated by Japanese toiletry habits but it's well known between 70%- 98% are lactose intolerant and when you think about it for a moment it's not surprising, they haven't had thousands of years to get used to the joys of dairy, the fact they love it regardless says more about their strength of character than the cleanliness of their toilets imo

Every politician makes gaffes. Labour isnít immune, so donít kid yourself.

Liz Truss should turn out to be a fine PM.

How much are you willing to sacrifice so you're equal to the people in the most deprived areas of the country? Many of those people you think should be behind a wall are really struggling and many of them work for organisations which already pay the same poultry wage across the county. So tell me, in your socialist utopia where everyone is paid the right amount for their area, just how little is enough?
As I said, the proposed policy was about spending power. The principle has already been established with London Weighting. Itís just developing on that theme.

You donít seem to understand that the glaring disparity between public and private sector wages in deprived areas is what keeps companies from investing in these areas. Ultimately, as more companies establish themselves in these deprived areas, they will become wealthier parts of the UK and wages will rise naturally.

This is what people with a Left-wing disposition just donít get. Theyíd rather see deprived areas remain deprived so the inhabitants will vote Labour. The signs are that red wall populations are beginning to grasp that Labourís approach is keeping them down.

The whole concept is nuts as the nutty woman has had to admit herself. Hardly 'levelling up' was it?

Maybe she should do thinking first. Top tip that. Must be the biggest and quickest u turn by somebody who hasn't even ot the job yet.....
As expensive as London? No way, Mr K!

Yes. But local government and civil service pensions are based on salary, so that is taken care of in any case.

I'm not interested in Japan. Your comment was in reply to a UK issue.

A gaffe makes you look stupid, inciting people to break the law or indeed giving a hostile nation the ability to imprison one of our citizens longer isn't a gaffe, it's careless negligence and highlights exactly how inappropriate these people are for the office they hold

They really should be ashamed that one of the 'best' 2 candidates for the top job suggested it and that nobody saw there'd be a backlash. Wow, just wow.

Why don't we build a big wall round the poorer areas while we're at it, you know to keep the riffraff in?
Yes please

They seem to do that already especially in the US, with an armed security guard on the gates for good measure.

We came close to buying a house in a gated community but Mrs G raised the good point of why do 2 people need a house with 4 bathrooms. I think we're much happier where we ended up - surrounded by normal people who don't think their something special.
