Have your say

So our new Prime Minister, Theresa May, claims she wants a fairer society and wants the country to work for all, not just the privileged few.

Usual waffle. Cameron, when he became Prime Minister, said: “We are all in this together.” Never happened. Total opposite in fact. Then he started to dismantle the NHS, privatise education, and then made his rich friends richer by tax cuts. Don’t be fooled by Theresa May’s waffle. She has not turned into some sort of fairy godmother overnight.

She voted for every policy that Cameron and IDS brought in against the poor and disabled of this country. The same as Tory Norfolk MPs did. That is why they get favourable treatment from the Government.

I just hope Theresa May does not give us a Margaret Thatcher speech “Where there is discord may we bring harmony, where there is despair may we bring hope...” What a load of rubbish that turned out to be. Why has the Prime Minister kept Jeremy Hunt in his job as Health Secretary? His only interest is to privatise the NHS. He has lost all respect from NHS workers and all the goodwill and trust has gone. That is why the NHS is having problems recruiting staff now. As regards him forcing contracts on the junior doctors, I am sure that would be illegal. A contract is something to be signed by two people agreeing the terms. If it is forced on people it is not a binding contract.

Even though Cameron has gone, he is still looking after his own by giving his advisers a massive redundancy package – even though the head of the civil service said this is unfair, as he was told by the Government to cut back on redundancy packages for all the other civil servants who lost their jobs through Government cuts. Cameron overruled him and told him to pay his advisers who lost their jobs. Works out about £200,000 or more, claiming they did not know they were going to lose these jobs when Cameron suddenly resigned.

I find it odd that a country that has no money canfind £40 billion for Trident and £50 billion-plus for HS2 that no one wants.
