Re: Mayor suggests amnesty
First of all I think you have to accept the fact that the people working over here illegally are going to continue working here.
Even If only a percentage of them take the amnesty offered It must be a good thing and In my opinion I think that would be quite a big percentage.
At least that would be money coming into the country via taxes etc.
As for the Daily Mail, I am really disappointed in that paper, there was a time I used to buy it every day and thought It was a good middle of the road paper to read that was down to earth and not pompous.
My feelings changed 2 or 3 years ago when they started to knock the Labour party on nearly every other page. I don't mind admitting that for the majority of my life I have voted for the conservatives but that is after making up my own mind. What I don't like is being treated like some kind of idiot with a constant barrage of anti labour propaganda!
I voted with my feet and cancelled my daily delivery around two and a half years ago.
As for the reduction in vat, I think that is an expensive way of tinkering with things.
In all honesty how many firms advertising a product at say £19.99 are going to reduce it to the £19.56 or so to allow for the 2.5 % reduction?
I do think something needs to be done to kick start things but couldn't all those billions have been better spent on say roads and housing that would have at least put a lot more people into work who would then be spending themselves?
