That was rather funny to see after listening to Gavin explain how good his plans were this morning.

Never mind Priti (vacant) Patel has another great idea to help the NHS

"Priti Patel is planning to hike visa fees for NHS and other workers from EU countries

Ms Patel is exploring removing a £55 discount on application fees for citizens from 26 countries, most of which are EU members.

The move would hit workers in the NHS and care sectors, as well as seasonal workers such as fruit pickers – all areas where there are fears of staff shortages after Brexit.

It would also mean employers would lose their exemption from paying a £199 fee as part of their sponsorship of foreign workers.

this will help farmers, and no doubt Dim Martin as well

We live in a democracy. The Tories won the election. The people can vote for a change in four years time ....if they want to. The country also voted for Brexit. Get over it because you ain't going to change any of it....yet.

Here's the thing about democracy - everyone else has the right to point out what a pack of corrupt, incompetent bigots coasting on a large majority and flag-shagging rather than actually doing their jobs.

If you'd prefer a nation where we're not allowed to do that, others are available.

Straw man: a form of argument and an informal fallacy of having the impression of refuting an argument, whereas the real subject of the argument was not addressed or refuted, but instead replaced with a false one. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "attacking a straw man".

A straw man (sometimes written as strawman) is a form of argument and an informal fallacy of having the impression of refuting an argument, whereas the real subject of the argument was not addressed or refuted, but instead replaced with a false one.[1] One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "attacking a straw man".

The typical straw man argument creates the illusion of having completely refuted or defeated an opponent's proposition through the covert replacement of it with a different proposition (i.e., "stand up a straw man") and the subsequent refutation of that false argument ("knock down a straw man") instead of the opponent's proposition.Straw man arguments have been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly regarding highly charged emotional subjects.

Straw man tactics in the United Kingdom may also be known as an Aunt Sally, after a pub game of the same name, where patrons throw sticks or battens at a post to knock off a skittle balanced on top.

More short-termist thinking which they've trying to hide by shouting about a large number; the benefits of helping children, particularly from the most disadvantaged families, to catch up on lost education and development will be greater that the few billion the Treasury is refusing to provide.


This is also true I think:

Mr Badger, not once in this thread have you addressed the subject of the catch up programme - but call me out for doing the same!!

As it is, I feel the young people of this country through those at school to those say in their mid twenties have been rather left behind and deserve all of our support. I have grandchildren from 5 through to 21 at school and university and am fully aware of the situation. As always turning these issues into political footballs does not help. Parents, education authorities, local and national politicians all need to pull together to get the help through to where it is required. A one fits all scenario will never work.

It is political though. The government are the ones who can control how we help young people catch up and how much funding is available to do so. To pretend it's not political is a nonsense.

Research from 2019 General Election suggests that the higher the level of education attained by the individual the more likely the individual is to vote Labour. It is not in the current Government’s interest to educate people hence their decision making. To pretend otherwise is a little naive I’d suggest.

Well quite. It's also why the government have banned certain materials being taught - materials considered subversive or anti-capitalist - and why they are focusing policy and investment on subjects that are much more practical and focused on employability rather than on creativity and critical thinking. It's all part of their wider culture war strategy.

Yes they are bad but there is really no point in moaning about it daily. Nobody can do anything for four years and nobody can do anything about Brexit at all so you might as well give up on that one completely.

Correct, this is a democracy.

Through a laissez faire attitude and incompetence, tens of thousands of people are dead.

Not only that, those that died, did so horribly and without the comfort of being around families. Those left behind were also left distraught, because they couldn't be with their loved ones in their last hours.

Herbivore is being polite, in my view, in expressing his opinion, which is a democratic right, I believe.

The point i am trying to make is that nationally putting more money into education, will not work - it will never get through to where it is needed the most. There was a report out yesterday or the day before showing the most deprived areas of Suffolk and indeed the rest of the nation. Feeding these local authorities with increased resources would be a more favourable way forward.

49% of the country didn't vote for Brexit, I'm sure if the positions had been reserved you'd not be so forceful in saying 51% is a clear victory.

10m people didn't vote for this government and are perfectly within their rights to voice their concerns and issues with the government even if it upsets you.

You seem to think political debate ceases during the years between elections, perhaps that is part of why we are where we are.
