This. Is. Not. Enough.

March 26, 2020 3 comments

Everyone needs the Government to do more.

What the Government has done for us financially is not enough.

Paying people just enough so that they might be able to service their bills only helps the banks, the finance sector and whoever owns property and capital further up the chain.

This isn’t fair. It is making profit from misery. It is going to hurt many more than it will save.

It isn’t fair that so many people are riding the clutch on debt and just about managing in normal times.

There is no way that prioritising or showing preference to creditors during a national crisis is in any way fair on all of us now.

The madness has to stop.

The Government must ditch the complicated solutions and lack of consideration for the impacts and consequences that the decisions they are making will really have.

EVERYONE MUST BE TREATED THE SAME

It doesn’t matter if you are Self-Employed, Unemployed, a Shareholder, Zero-Hours Worker, Professional, Key-Worker or Business Owner.

EVERYONE MUST BE TREATED THE SAME

The only way to deal with this crisis equitably and in a way that will work for EVERYONE and put us in the best place possible for us ALL to pick up our lives and resume them as near as possible to how they were before, is to shut down the normal flow of money until normal business can be resumed.

STOP THE BILLS, THE INTEREST AND THE ACCUMULATION OF DEBT FOR EVERYONE

Don’t piss about with clever ideas that sound great when they are shared from a lectern during a TV briefing, but only end up helping some, and then in too many cases only part of the way.

EVERYONE WHO HAS LOST INCOME DUE TO THE SHUTDOWN SHOULD RECEIVE EXACTLY THE SAME 

£94 a week is enough for any one person to feed themselves and buy the necessary essentials IF THERE ARE NO OTHER BILLS TO PAY.

KEY-WORKERS, ANYONE else who is able to continue working or ANY BUSINESS that continues to trade will get the immediate bonus of having a payment holiday – which is a very fair and balanced way for the Country to say a big thank you for all that they do.

Anything else is simply setting us ALL up for a great fall.

Businesses are already closing and will not reopen.

Jobs that have been put on hold will never return.

The Crisis DOES NOT need to be made worse for any of us than it already is.

The Government can do this and it can do it quickly.

THIS IS THE HELP THAT EVERYONE NEEDS!
