While I am sure we all welcome the fact that there will be an extra three billion pounds towards Brexit preparations and more money for the NHS with provision for extra pay for nurses, the rest of this eagerly awaited budget was pretty tame. Especially when you consider the tremendous challenges that Britain and its people are currently facing.
Given the British Democratic Party’s general policies and current thinking on the subjects and challenges of the day, I would like to think that a British Democratic chancellor would have announced money to be allocated for house building and slum clearance. more money for repatriation of foreign criminals, an expansion of our costal fleet, more help for research and development of our technical and other industries, coupled with an expanded worldwide Civil Service ‘sales push’ towards our post EU future and much else besides.
