It’s Mad Mac
EVERY sane person should be horror-struck by the rabid lunacy of what Labour is now seriously proposing.
It is a mad blueprint for the destruction of our economy and hundreds of thousands of jobs. We hope one group in particular was watching it closely.
Because if former Tories such as Ken Clarke and Philip Hammond get their way, and thwart Brexit before October 31, then they will be to blame for John McDonnell’s teenage Marxist fantasies becoming terrifyingly real.
Boris Johnson would probably win an election if he delivers Brexit on time. If not, Corbyn may well do so despite setting all-time records for unpopularity and with his new “neutral” Brexit policy a display of staggering cowardice.
Some might initially approve of certain Labour ideas: A 32-hour, four-day week for all, on the same pay? Great! But, er, what when your firm cannot afford it, goes bust and lays you off?
You might not care, either, if Labour shuts private schools. Until your taxes are educating those displaced kids in newly-overwhelmed comprehensives, while their wealthy parents suddenly have £30,000 free for even better holidays.
And once Labour has seized schools’ private property, why would they stop there? Nothing is safe — not your business, savings, pension or home.
Who will want to live, or invest, in a country run by class war extremists who don’t even respect property ownership? No one, as Venezuela discovered.
This is before we even get to Labour blowing our taxes on “reparations” to other countries for our colonial past.
Or the “free everything” splurge with which they hope to dupe the slow- witted. It would require hundreds of billions of pounds. Where from? Not the “rich” — you won’t see them for dust.
But Labour has somehow equalled this madness with their Brexit policy. On the biggest issue since the war they have literally no view. They’re neutral.
Good luck selling that to Leavers — or Remainers. Everyone, in other words.
And yet there are ex-Tories who apparently still prefer the risk of this shambolic horror show running the country over fulfilling the promises they once made to the Leave-voting majority.
It is a historic error.
OUR hearts go out to those stranded by Thomas Cook and the staff now out of work.
We are repulsed by the greed of the bosses who made terrible decisions for years, lurching from crisis to crisis.
They must be held accountable. Rewards for failure are damaging capitalism’s image faster than anything.
But it is bonkers to argue this company should have been bailed out with public money. It has catastrophic debt and no business model in the web era.
Times change. Some firms fail. That’s neither the Government’s fault nor its responsibility.
