Just worked out that if I was on the National minimum wage and working 40 hours per eeek I’d be on about £18k gross. After tax and NI I’d be left with circa £15700 or take home pay of £1,315 every month, £303 per week / £60.60. Now let’s say my rent is £500 pcm (incl council tax), heating / lighting etc £10 pw, travel to work £20pw. This would leave £735 or £183 pw remaining. Now imagine you’ve got two kids to clothe and feed. Then just imagine what a massive difference £20 a week would make to your life......40 grand bonus for Dominic Cummings. £22 billion for failed Serco Test and Trace. Over £1 billion in contracts for their mates and cronies.
But they then vote for £1,000 a year cuts for 6 million families struggling to make ends meet in the most difficult circumstances.
And people wonder why I utterly loathe and detest these shower of conmen, frauds and charlatans. Twenty friggin quid a week. Twenty measly quid a week. Is that too much to ask?
No emoji sums up the anger and contempt I have for this “government”
